Lace Braid into Soft Ponytails | Teen Hairstyles

March 25, 2011

If any of you watched the Bachelor this past season, you may have noticed this super cute lace braid style from Michelle Money… arguably the most “controversial” but also one of the most beautiful girls that season.

Lace Braid into Soft Ponytails

This braid style is similar to a Reverse French Front, only that you pull hair into the braid from the top side only… so that the braid hangs down on the forehead like the fringe of a curtain. In my video example, I only wish I had braided the bottom side of the braid closer to her ear so that the braid swoops into the ponytail earlier… so please keep that in mind! It is super cute, nonetheless!

Although I used this style on my #3 daughter as an experiment, this style is perfect for teen/tween girls, and even moms, so it is sure to be a hit. You can technically use this braid style in any number of fun combinations (tucked behind the ear with the rest of the hair down and curly, into a messy bun, in an updo, into braids, etc).

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, hairspray, two hairbands, two small flower clips (or other accessories).

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Happy Hairdoing!

We had posted this Valentine’s Day hairstyle two years ago, but in photo format. Many have requested that this be shown as a video tutorial, so here you go! It also helps for me to be using an updated camera as well!

Double Heart Twists (Side)

There are actually two ways to finish this heart hairstyle, one by using twists as I have done (better for older girls) and the other in braids (popular with little girls). Both are equally cute and provide just a little bit different of a look.

Teen Hairstyles: Braided Headband into a Rose

January 25, 2011

Over the past few months I have received a few inquiries asking for hair headband hairstyles . You could say that the hair headbands are somewhat of a trend that is very popular with teens today. This style is a fairly simple one, and can be done in the normal French Braid style, or in the Reverse (Dutch) Braid style, depending on how you want it to look.

Also, you can finish the headband in any number of ways. You can leave the braid hanging on the one side, or you can do what I did and roll it up and bobby pin it into a super cute rosette. The latter is not a new concept and is not something I could claim, but the combination is wonderful.

I was planning on leaving the hair as filmed in the video, but… as you can tell from the photos, I decided to pull the rest of the hair into a loose side braid. You could leave the hair down straight, curl it, or do a side flipped pontail or a braid like I did. Your combinations really can be endless and entirely up to you!

Front View…Reverse French Headband into a Rose (Front)
Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, brush (if needed), 1 large hair band, 1 small hair elastic, hairspray, 2-3 bobby pins, and accessories (if desired).

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

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

Cute Layered Ponytail | Teen Hairstyles

January 09, 2011

I saw a ponytail hairstyle very similar to this in the mall the other day, only I elaborated on it somewhat and I like how it turned out.  Today was the second day that I used it, and we were stopped all the time by people we know asking if we had posted it to the website yet… so here it is!

Side View…Layered Ponytail (Side)

This hairstyle is perfect for teens, since they are always looking for something unique, so I recognize that this hairdo may not be for everyone.

There are several variations you can use on this style… rather than lay the hair strands flat (like I did), you can twist the strands or micro-braid them.  It just depends on how you want it to look, so it really can be three styles in one.

Front View…Layered Ponytail (Front)

Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, brush (if needed), 6 clear hairbands, hairspray, and accessories (if desired).

Time Requirement: 5-8 minutes.

Skill Level: Medium

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

Hi everyone! Many followers here and on YouTube have asked which hairstyle it was that I used on my #2 daughter in our Family Intro video. Honestly, it is very similar to another style we did only I completed this hairstyle with a braid instead of a topsy-tailed pony.

This is a very simple hairstyle that is perfect for girls of all ages, including moms! In order for you to see the style in 360˚, I provided the following views…
