Hairstyle Video: French Braids #1

May 18, 2009

I receive quite a few emails from this blog, and it is hard to find time to answer them all, but one of the most common requests I am asked is to provide a detailed French Braid instruction.

Double French Braids | Hairstyle Ideas

 

Honestly, the French Braid is one of the most difficult braids to explain “step-by-step” and really must be shown in person for one to get the whole idea. So, given your requests and the fact that I couldn’t possibly show all of you how to do this in person… here is a video we filmed over the weekend with instructions on how to create a French Braid (and “K” in her soccer uniform).

The braid style I used was one posted quite a while back called Double-French Braids w/ Messy Flips, which also uses the Zig-Zag part. Please do review the links above and then watch the following video tutorial:

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, two hair elastics, hairspray {if desired}

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

French Braid Video #1

Click to watch video, or click here to view on YouTube.

I hope this clip helps! The “A, B, & C” stranding (with the B strand always in the middle, and that you add hair to strands A & C as you braid down) is the key to successful French Braiding. As mentioned in the video, it really takes practice. This French Braid style is a very cute hairstyle that holds well and makes for an equally cute Second-Day ‘Do with a few accessories!

Good luck, and Happy Hairdoing!

Four-Leaf Clover | St. Patrick's Day Hairstyles

March 16, 2009

This will probably be my last St. Patty’s day hairstyle. It is a four-leaf clover version of some of the past hairstyles. I didn’t take too many pictures since I knew you could refer back to this 2-leaf clover or the 3-leaf clover.

Girls Hairstyles

Items Needed: Brush, comb, hairspray, spray bottle, pomade, 5 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 10-15 minutes.

Skill Level: Hard

Begin by parting hair into four sections. Now gather up each section of hair and form a ponytail. You want these ponytails to be close together. Now flip each section under. (Many of you have asked where to find the *Topsy-Tail Tool* I use to flip the ponytials without torturing your daughter. This link should help.) As far as which way to flip the ponytails, flip the bottom two straight outward and the two top ponytails at an angle…

Now divide each section into two parts and twist them tight. Combine all the ends together and add a rubber band. (Add ribbons or accessories where desired)…

Happy Hairdoing!

Best Three-Leaf Clover | St. Patrick’s Day Hairstyles

March 09, 2009

This hairdo is very similar to Lucky Do #2 below except that this is the 3-clover version, and different from Lucky Do #1 because this one is from three ponytails instead of one. This one happens to be my personal favorite.

Items Needed: Brush, comb, spray bottle, hairspray, 4 rubber bands, and any accessories.

Time Requirement: 10 minutes.

Skill Level: Medium

Begin by parting hair about 2 inches above ears all the way around the head. Pull this hair back into a ponytail and secure with rubber band. Now part remaining hair into two sections by parting hair right down middle of head. Pull both into ponytails and secure with rubber bands (you should now have three total ponytails, one on top and two on bottom)…


Flip all three ponytails using a topsy-tail tool (flip the two bottom ponytails outward towards ears). Flip the top ponytail from neck to top of head…

Separate each ponytail into two sections…

Twist each section outward from rubber band…

Have your DD hold sections while you work as needed. When all twists are done pull the ends together forming three heart shapes. Secure all ends together with one rubber band…

Add ribbon or a flower if you desire…

Happy Hairdoing!

Two-Leaf Clover | St. Patrick's Day Hairstyles

March 09, 2009

OK, time for another St. Patty’s Day hairstyle! This is the first in a series of clovers. I will start with a two-leaf clover. This is personally not my favorite as I like the 3-leaf clover better, but you can decide for yourself

Items Needed: Brush, comb, spray bottle, hairspray, 3 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Start by parting the hair straight down the middle. You can zig-zag the top part if you want, but leave the back in a straight part. Pull each section of hair into a tight ponytail. Ponytails MUST be close together (about 2-3 inches apart maximum)…

This is a picture of how the ponytails should NOT be spaced. Can you see the difference???

Now flip each ponytail sideways starting near the part and flipping towards ears. You can flip by using a topsy-tail tool (I find this to be the least painful) or by loosening the ponytail a little, then create a hole in the middle of hair between head and rubber band… flipping the whole ponytail through the hole. If you need a refresher with better pictures click *here*.

Now separate the ponytails into two even pieces…

Twist them tight… outward away from the rubber band to create the curve shape you need. Have your DD hold one side while you do the other ponytail into twists…

Now pull all the ends together to form two heart shapes. Use a rubber band to secure all ends together. Use bobby pins where needed to hold the rubber band in place or secure the curves of the heart…

Add a green ribbon or flower if you want to. I took this picture so you could see the ribbon in the hair. **NOTE** This was my first attempt and the ponytails on this try were WAY TOO FAR APART! You will want to do them closer.

Happy Hairdoing!
