Forward Twistback into Bun | Updo Hairstyles

December 24, 2010

Interestingly enough, I found the idea for this hairstyle from an article on 2011 Hair Trends which highlights the new trends in high fashion being various forms of twists! They found that Prada, YSL, and Blanc de Chine are all using twist hairstyles in their Spring 2011 fashion shows. Even neater, the author features one of our oldest twist styles from YouTube.

I have always loved using twists in my hairstyles and have many of them listed on this website. What I love about this particular style is that it has a very modern look to it, and it can be used for pretty much any occasion (Prom, Homecoming, ballet, weddings, formal events, etc).

You can actually twist the front section any direction you want, as each provides a little bit of a different look.

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, brush, water bottle, two hairbands, hairspray.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

If you like this hairstyle… be sure to let us know!

Happy Hairdoing!

Rosette Buns | Updo Hairstyles

July 26, 2010

What I love about maintaining this website on cute hairstyles is hearing back from all of you. I feel like many of you have caught on to how much fun doing your daughter’s hair can be… that it provides a few minutes of quality one-on-one time with them in the mornings. I particularly love reading that so many of you feel that your daughter’s confidence is boosted by all of the compliments she is receiving. I know, it is also a little fun for you, too!

Perhaps one of the most frequent hairdo requests I receive in email from moms is further help in how to create our Rosette Buns hairstyle (click link for step-by-step photos and instructions) from last year.

As such, I was able to film this hairstyle tutorial on my daughter last week.  (One YouTube commenter just said that you could simply use only two rosettes on top and the rest of the hair down in the ponytail and it would look very cute as well.  I hadn’t thought of doing that, but it would look super cute!)

This can be considered a flower girl hairstyle for a wedding, a ballet hairstyle, or just a simple and elegant updo for prom/homecoming or a formal night out…

Items Needed: Comb, brush, spray bottle, hairspray, and 6 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

I hope this helps! Do you like the video tutorials? Do you feel that they are efficient? Let me know!

Happy Hairdoing!

4th of July Hairstyle: Star Twists

July 03, 2010

I had promised a few 4th of July hairstyles, but I just have not had as much time as I need to get them filmed. I did get this one on today.

Star Twists Back

Star Twist Front

Many of you will recognize the base hairstyle as one featured on Good Things Utah in June. The base hairstyle is called Holiday Twists, but the variation I demonstrate below uses about 1/3 of each ponytail to draw the lines of a star on top of the head.
