In this hairstyle tutorial we have an exciting surprise for you all!

CGH#2 asked me if she could film a tutorial, so we decided to mix it up a bit by allowing her to teach you one of her go-to hairstyles on herself! She was so nervous to be teaching the tutorial… but you can see her courage as you watch the video! Her fans were so good to her in the comment box on YouTube… it was quite sweet!

This simple braided bun is a cute, quick style designed for young teenagers learning to do their own hair or people who need a great style in a hurry!

We especially thought of this one with swimmers {wet hair} as well as for other athletics or cheer/dance! The hairstyle is also great for “day-three” hair, which is best worn up so you can pull it back and still look good.

Hairstyle Steps:

  1. Comb all of the hair up into a high ponytail… {You will want it to sit high on the head, not on the back of your head.}
  2. Secure the high ponytail with a hair elastic…
  3. Divide the ponytail into three sections and create a simple, basic braid down to the ends of the hair…
  4. Secure this braid with a small elastic {preferably the same color as your hair}…
  5. Then twist the braid around the front of the ponytail holder to create the bun effect. {You really want the braid to lay flat against the rubberband so that the braid is featured well}…
  6. Once the hair is all twisted around into a bun, secure it with another hair elastic or bobbypins/spin pins. {Either way will work fine, so simply pick whatever is most comfortable for you.}…
  7. Add a little pop to the hairstyle by throwing on a cute headband as an accessory.
Enjoy!

Happy Hairdoing!

Subtle Twist into Side Braid | Easy Hairstyles

November 21, 2012

Quick and easy, those are the hairstyles that I LOVE!!!

This one is a perfect hairstyle for those days or mornings when you have very little time on your hands. Perhaps what I enjoy the most about it is that the style is meant to be loose. There is nothing wrong with tight and crisp hairstyles, but there is just something about that romantic ‘tousled‘ look in a braid that is super cute and very trendy right now!

Subtle Twist into Side Braid

And… it takes no more than 3-5 minutes to complete! This hairstyle incorporates as soft, single twistback on one side that is then merged into a side braid.

We also included small snippets from our family videos this year of the kids’ in their Halloween costumes!  Enjoy!

Items Needed: 1 hairband… that’s it! {hairspray and bobby pins optional}

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Braided {Kitty} Cat Ears | Halloween Hairstyles

October 30, 2012

It is always fun to create new Halloween Hairstyles!

Many fans have asked if there is any way to make cat ears using your own hair, so that you do not have to pay for those expensive pre-made cat ear headbands.

Well… yes, there is!!!

Braided Kitty Cat Ears | Halloween Hairstyles

I have to give a special thanks to our CGH#4 who happily volunteered to be our model {although she doesn’t volunteer often for our tutorials}!

Braided Kitty Cat Ears | Halloween Hairstyles

Steps:

  1. I began by sectioning off two small square sections of hair on either side of the middle part line, and secured them with an elastic band.
  2. For the first ear, I then took two black pipe cleaners, twisting them together, and then braided the two pipe cleaners as the “third” strand of a 3-strand braid.  Secure with another elastic band.
  3. Then, take the finished braid and bend it into a point in a spot that looks good to you, and continue on to fashion the kitty cat ear. Finish the ear by wrapping the end of the braid around the original base, which secures itself because of the pipe cleaners.
  4. Repeat the same step on the other side.

While finishing this style, we also suggest that you can use red pipe cleaners to create devil horns if you wish to be a Little Red Devil for Halloween!  Similar braiding with different colored pipe cleaners can help you create Minnie Mouse ears, puppy ears, bunny ears, piglet ears, and on and on!!!

We hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and I think that it turned out very cute!

By the way, this was my absolute photo out of all the shoot!  Little CGH#4 certainly has her own personality, and as this photo and the video point out… she does what she wants to do!  And, we are OK with that!!!

Leather Accent Loony Braids | Cute Braids

October 28, 2012

Since Halloween is only a few days away, we decided to show you what CGH#3 wants to be for Halloween! She did not want to be a fairy, or something scary… she wanted to be someone from history. The challenge is to come up with cute Halloween hairstyles!

We, of course, were going for Pocahontas, but are very careful not use the character name in the tutorial due to our contract with Disney, so we are calling this a “Native American Princess” hairstyle.

Loony Braid with Leather Accents

{* Note from Mindy:  Please note, my daughter’s choice in dress this year is not in any way mocking an indigenous culture and is nothing more than an honor and celebration of it.  She has been studying early American history in school this first semester, talks about Native American culture every day, and has been checking out books at the library and reading them on her own. She loves the stories of Pocahontas and Sacagawea. Not sure if any of our fans, know this, but our youngest daughter is 1/16th Native American {from her great-great grandmother}.  We honor and celebrate all cultures in our home.}

Given all of our braided hairstyles to choose from, we simply could not settle for a 3-strand braid. We wanted something a little different, so decided to accent an idea from one of our old videos called Loony Braids.

  1. We began by parting the hair down the middle of the head, and into two side ponytails. We then took a basic strand of crafting leather, doubled it over, and secured it around the ponytail.
  2. The next step is to grab the whole ponytail and use it as one of the three braiding strands along with the two remaining strands of leather. {Yes, the hair actually becomes the 3rd strand!}
  3. Once I braided to the end of the ponytail, I secured it with a clear hair elastic and cut of any excess leather. You could also simply take the remaining strands of leather and create a bow at the end.
  4. Repeat the same steps as above on the other ponytail…

You can see that by braiding the two small strands of leather along with the ponytail acting as the 3rd strand, that the resulting braid has a very fun zig-zag look to it!  You can pull out the elbows of the braid to make the braid look more “jagged”, but we left the braid as is for this style.

This can be an everyday braid, and you can substitute pretty much anything in place of the leather for a different accented look.  You can use ribbon, colored yarn/string, strips of fabric, old necklace chains, etc.

Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 2 small hair elastics, leather strands, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium
