Double Lace into Side Braid | Rihanna Hairstyles

July 22, 2012

I am really enjoying the use of Lace Braids in my daughters’ hair lately, and they have worn this braided style for about six months or so.

Double Lace Braid into Side Braid | Rihanna Hairstyles

We first saw this hairstyle on Rihanna from a red carpet shoot last year. My girls always receive so many compliments anytime we wear it, but it is tough to explain to moms on the spot… which is why we created this tutorial!

The hairstyle uses two Lace Braids on either side coming down over the ears {literally} and combining in the back.

{If you do not understand how to follow the Lace Braid technique, please see our detailed Same-Side Lace Braid.}

From there, you take all remaining hair and braid it into a large side braid.

You can accessorize the braid if you wish, but we actually think it is beautiful simply left as is!

This hairstyle is perfect for women and girls of all ages… and would be particularly beautiful for Prom, Homecoming, or any other formal occasion.

Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 clear hair elastic, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 8-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Happy Hairdoing!

The Subtle Bow | Easy Hairstyles

July 11, 2012

For this week’s post, we wanted to show you a super-easy hairstyle that can be done in literally one to two minutes!

Hairstyle bows are very popular right now, as seen everywhere but also evidenced by our Bow BraidPonytail Bow, Lady Gaga Bow tutorials, etc.  However, this hair bow is a lot more subtle and perfect for girls and women of all ages! Super cute, too!  It is a hairstyle that can be done in a pinch!

I have had one subscriber state that this really could be a Daddy Do, and we are bummed that we didn’t think of that first because my hubby could have done this one easily!

If a guy can tie his shoe, he can do this hairstyle on his daughter!

To dress up the hairstyle further, you may choose to curl the tassels of the bow and the style would be very  elegant!

Also, we added a small clip with guests Elle & Blair Fowler, two of the top beauty idols on YouTube who happen to be sisters! We met them both at VidCon and had a great time chatting and laughing! Aren’t they both so beautiful??? If you stop by their channels, be sure to comment and let them know that Mindy from CuteGirlsHairstyles sent you! It will put a smile on their faces!

Enjoy the video!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 2-3 bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Bow Braid Headband | Girls Hairstyles

May 21, 2012

We were surprised to see The Bow Braid do so well in only one week’s time! In that video, we showed you several other ways to incorporate the bows into five separate hairstyles.

Today, I decided to show you how to do a Bow Braid hairstyle on yourself {as requested by so many of our YouTube fans}.

Bow Braid Headband | Cute Girls Hairstyles

This style uses a French Braided Headband as the base before adding in the bows. If you do not know how to do a French headband, you can learn how to do so by clicking our French Front hairstyle tutorial.

In this tutorial, I only sectioned enough hair for four bows, but you can actually do more if you would like. My personal opinion it that this hairstyle looks better with only a few bows on one side, more like an accent to the style, rather than bows all across the front.

I have worn this hairstyle three times in the past two weeks, and cannot tell you how many times moms stopped me wherever we were to ask how I did it! Thankfully, I have this website where I can refer them!

Items Needed: A brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hairspray or pomade, a hairpin (not a bobby pin), and one hair elastic.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes.

Skill Level: Hard

If you like this hairstyle, please feel free to blog about it, share it on FB, tweet it, pin it, whatever-you-want it!

Happy Hairdoing!

Katniss Reaping Braid | Hunger Games Hairstyles

March 25, 2012

Last weekend we filmed two Hunger Games Hairstyles based solely upon a few good photos we could find online, this one and the Prim Braids. {A few months ago we posted the famous Katniss Braid, the one she wears in the arena.}

We saw the THG movie Friday night, loved it, and we were happy that our hairstyles were fairly true to form!

We were also excited to receive an email from Linda Flowers, the Lead Stylist on set for The Hunger Games movie who had seen our hairstyles on YouTube and wanted to let us know that she liked them and that she wants to Skype me for a personal tutorial with her! I am so0000 EXCITED!!!

For this hairstyle worn by Katniss during “The Reaping” scene in the movie, you basically follow the same steps as we showed in the Prim Braids for the two French-backs into normal braids. The only difference is that you “fold in”  and pin the lower braids into a flat, low bun.

The result is super cute, and sure to get you compliments!

Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, two clear elastics, several bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}

Time Requirement: 5+ minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Waterfall Twist | Beautiful Teen Hairstyles

March 11, 2012

We have received a lot of attention for our Waterfall Braid hairstyle tutorials, with over 18 million YouTube views between our first two videos alone!

What I hear from some girls, is that they are not very good at French braiding and as such they can never get the braids to look right. We want everyone to be able to get that awesome cascading waterfall look, so…

Waterfall Twist | A cheat to the Waterfall Braid

About six months ago, Kori, a good friend of mine from Princess Hairstyles, posted a simple “cheat” for the Waterfall Braid that used a twist on the side, rather than a braid. The end result looks so much like a waterfall braid that not many people would know the difference!

Waterfall Twist Hairstyle {Front View}

For this tutorial, we carried the twist all the way around the head and we think it turned out super cute!

Items Needed: Brush or rat-tail comb, 1 bobby pin, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level:  Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin on front, right side of the head and section out 1 large strand of hair that can serve as your base for the twist around the head…
  2. Divide this strand into 2 equal pieces, and begin by twisting them around each other one time.
  3. Now, take a new selected strand of hair and place it between your twisting strands, so that it literally falls through like in the Waterfall Braid.
  4. Twist the 2 original strands once more.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 all the way around the back of the head and towards the top of the left ear.
  6. For the last added-in section of hair on the left side, be sure to pull back into the strand about the same amount of hair you pulled initially to created the twisted strands… this will give a balanced look from the front.
  7. When you finish adding in your last twist, grab a bobby pin and sure-secure the end of the twist above the ear, making sure to hide the bobby pin as best as you can.
  8. Use hairspray {if desired} to help control flyaways.

Enjoy!

As always, if you enjoyed this hairstyle… please be sure to “blog” it, “Facebook” it, “Tweet” it, “Pin” it, “whatever-you-want” it!

Happy Hairdoing!
