The Knotted Headband | Back-to-School Hairstyles

August 12, 2012

I always appreciate when our fans email links or photos of hairstyles I have not seen previously.

This knotted headband style was emailed to us by a fan from St. Petersburg, Russia and we really loved the look of it!

The Knotted Braid Headband | Braided Hairstyles

It looks complex, but if you know how to do the first step of tying your shoelaces, then you can certainly do this braid! The pattern to the braid is essentially overlaying loose square knots.

  1. I started with the hair wet, and used a little pomade to control the flyways.
  2. You then take as small section next to the part, and divide it in two, and interlace them just like the first step of tying your shoe. I then did this two more times, each time adding the top strands to an alligator clip.
  3. After creating your third set of strands, bring the first two strands under the next two, and interlace them again just like the first step of tying your shoe.
  4. Repeat these steps until the braided headband has the look you want.
  5. Secure the end with a bobby pin and spritz with hairspray as desired.
  6. When the hair dries, the loops of the knots spread out a little and look absolutely gorgeous!

This braid is perfect for any formal occasion, or for dancers, cheerleaders, or simply wearing around town! It can also be worn in any number of combinations for a super cute and unique hairstyle!

The knotted headband is also great for women of any age!  We have worn it on my CGH#4 {fourth daughter with short hair}, and I have done this braid on myself as well!

I guarantee you will certainly receive lots of compliments on this hairstyle!  Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, pomade, 1 small hair elastic, 1-2 bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Edgy Side Pullback | Easy Hairstyles

July 29, 2012

I have been wanting to film this hairstyle tutorial for a long time, but couldn’t really think of a good name for it.

Edgy Side Pullback | Cute Hairstyles

So many fans have commented on the style in past tutorials when I have worn it, so we filmed it anyway. I even wore it when I filmed a recent episode of The Mom’s View. {We absolutely love The Mom’s View, and will be appearing with them from time to time, so please be sure to subscribe to TMV’s channel!}

My husband calls this the Swayze Hairstyle, because he says it looks a lot like the slicked-side mullet hairstyles that Patrick Swayze wore most of his movie career.

Some people may call it a rocker style, some call it punk, and people like my hubby may even call it… the Swayze!

Of course, my Edgy Side Pullback is a fun one that can be used to compliment many different outfits at various events. You can use this hairstyle to make a nice outfit a bit more hip and edgy, or you can use it to dress up a simple pair of jeans and flip flops!

Nicole Richie, Brooke Burke, and several other Hollywood celebrities have been spotted wearing versions of this hairstyle lately…

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 large hair elastic, 1 small elastic band {color of hair}, 4-6 bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level:  Easy

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!

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!

Sock Curls | No-Heat Curls Hairstyles

January 18, 2012

By popular request, and because no-heat hairstyle ideas are very popular right now… we decided to share one of the curling techniques my grandma used on me when I was little.

No-Heat Hairstyles | Sock Curls

This hairstyle curling tip uses a little bit of water and socks! Yes, mens socks {clean ones, of course} to curl hair!

Now, like we did in the Headband Curls, you want to start with dry hair. Then gently spritz the hair with a water spray bottle. You will want the hair to be slightly damp, but not wet.

{If you do this directly out of the shower, your curls will likely not hold when you take out the socks.  It is important that you start out with dry hair.}

I also decided to try a little bit of curl enhancer {my first time using it} that I rubbed into the ends of the hair, to see how it works.

I then grabbed a section of hair from the top of the head and rolled the hair around the sock until I reached close to the scalp and then tied the sock. I did the same for the back-lower hair, as well as one each on the sides of the head. That makes a total of 4 tied socks.

If you are worried about the socks becoming loose or untying, you can sleep with a silk scarf over the hair.

No-Heat Hairstyles | Sock Curls {Front}

After a good night’s sleep, you are ready to take out the socks. You will be amazed at how easy this hairstyle is, and how wonderful your curls will look after using only socks!

I guarantee you will get compliments on your curls, and when you tell everyone you used “socks” to get them… just watch their faces!

Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, water bottle, curl enhancer, 4 mens socks, hairspray and accessory {as desired}

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!
