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.

Triple-Bun Ponytails {Tri-Bun-Onies} | Cute Hairstyles

April 13, 2010

This fun hairstyle has turned out to be on of my personal favorites, and gets so many comments that you absolutely must try it out on your daughters (I will be adding it to my Favorite’s tab as well)!

This style is one of my secret weapon styles from my old hairstyle photo album  that I wrote about a few months back.  It happens to be a personal favorite of my #3 daughter as well (pictured below)… my girls call this ‘do the “Tri-Bun-Onies”!

Items Needed:  Six large hair elastics, spray bottle, rat-tail comb, curling or flat iron (for subtle curls).

Time Requirement:  5-8 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Back to School Hairdo: Twist-Back into Square Knot

August 14, 2009

Begin by straightening hair. This step isn’t necessary, but I like the look better if the hair is straight. It makes the knot stand out a bit more. If your DD’s hair is naturally straight then you are all set!

Items Needed: Brush, comb, hair straightener, bobby pins, and hairspray (pomade optional).

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Now part hair wherever natural part falls. Section off a small piece on each side of the head and twist it back. You can use a little Pomade to help the twists stay together and eliminate flyers from static…

Take the two pieces and tie half a knot. Like you are tying a shoelace. One piece under the other and tighten them against the head. You will now have this…


Now using bobby pins secure this in place. I do it in such a way that the bobby pins are hidden. I think I used about 4-5 bobby pins…


Once the first 1/2 of the knot is secure take the remaining ends and tie together again in the same way… like you are doing a double knot. I think the official name of this is a “square knot“. Use bobby pins to secure in place once again. Leave the ends sticking out a little and fluff if necessary. Use hairspray to help hold in place…

The Bun-Hawk | Crazy Hair Day

February 23, 2009

If this hairstyle doesn’t make you giggle, I don’t know what will! This probably isn’t the hairdo you use to send your darling daughters to church, but it sure is a fun, silly do!

Use it for a game day do, a crazy hair day at school, or just for lots of comments and stares. My hubby came up with this one! (I have a few other Crazy Hair Day hairstyles listed on this blog.)

Items Needed: Brush, comb, spray bottle, hairspray, and 8 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Start with wet, brushed hair…

Begin by parting a large rectangular section of hair in the middle of head. Secure this section with a rubber band.

I didn’t take pictures of this next step, but you can see it three pictures down if you are confused. Twist the hair around the rubber band until it creates a bun. Secure the bun by wrapping a rubber band around the whole thing. Now section hair all the way around the head about 2 inches above both ears. **You will ultimately have 4 sections so keep this in mind.**


Secure hair with a rubber band in the center of back of head.

Twist hair around to create a bun and add a rubber band to secure. Section the remaining hair in half. Secure each section with a rubber band (to create ponytails).


Now twist the hair around and around till you get buns.

You will now have this!

Happy Hairdoing!
