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.

Back View…Layered Ponytail (Back)

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!

Happy Hairdoing!

Hairstyles | Double-Twists into Side Braid

November 12, 2010

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.

Double-Twist into Side Braid (Front)

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…

Cute Hairstyles: Tween Knots into Side Ponytail

October 28, 2010

This is one of the first hairstyles that I ever posted on this site, but many of you have asked for a video tutorial on exactly how to complete this hair style. It looks trickier than it actually is.  (To see photo instructions for the hairdo in that first post, please visit Tween Knots into Side Pony).

People have asked if it is hard to get the knots out after the hairstyle is done. The answer is “no”.  Individual hairs can knot very easily and not come out (like snarls), but for some reason large strands of hair do not have a problem with it.   This is actually only a half knot (like the first stage of tying your shoe), so to undo it all you do is grab the two strands close to the knot and push them into the knot to loosen the hair.  Very easy!

This knot style is another good one for helping keep the hair out of your daughter’s eyes and it holds up very well all day!

Tween Knots Ponytail

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray water bottle, hairspray/gel, 1 rubber band, accessory (if needed).

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

You can finish this style off in any number of ways.  You can do a simply ponytail like I did (or a high pony), or a side braid (French or fishtail), micro braids, curls (soft or tight), or a bun, etc.  You can even pull the knotted strands back in to two ponytails and finish them off in any of those ways!  This style can literally be 5-8 styles!!!

So my hubby mentioned to me the other day that I seem to always give the same greeting in my video tutorials.  When I took a look back, it was true… so we decided to change it up a bit!  This idea came from my #3, who is my model for this style. She had been walking around all morning singing that before we did her hair, so she begged me to do it! Notice that she does it too!

If you like this knotted hairstyle, be sure to let us know! Happy Hairdoing!

Cute Twistback Flip Under | Girls Hairstyles

September 15, 2010

What is fun about having posted so many cute and easy hairstyles on this site, is that you can use any combinations of past styles to create a new one!

Here is a hairstyle that incorporates concepts used in previous tutorials I have done. The end result is very cute…

Twistback Flip Under (Side)

This style incorporates a front-to-side twist as well as a side-ponytail flipunder. To vary the hair style a bit, you can use a French Front or a Reverse French Front instead of the front twist.  Oh, yes… and now you can watch the new tutorials in HD, if you wish!

For anyone looking to purchase a Topsy Tail, you can purchase one from the Amazon link in my left sidebar… or you can make your own with wire or a pipe cleaner (I will be posting a tutorial on how to do the latter in the next week).

Twistback Flip Under (back)

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, water spray bottle, one ponytail holder, Topsy Tail.

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes.

Easy Hairstyles: Triple Twistback Side Ponytail

July 13, 2010

So my girls have totally been into ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ (SYTYCD) lately and I noticed that for the first few weeks the girls were sporting different variations of twistback hairstyles.  Twistbacks are easy to do, so I thought I would feature one that I saw the most on the show, as it is super cute and easy to do.  Here it is…

Triple Twistbacks into Ponytail

This hairstyle can be used on little girls, tweens, and teens. Even moms can use this hairdo! The style is particularly fun, because you can incorporate hair twistbacks any way (and quantity) you desire. {Be mindful, that thin hair will make the twists look very skinny, so you may only opt for one twistback per side. Using Pomade on the twisted strands will help you reduce fly-aways, too.}

As always, in hairstyles like this, if your daughter cannot hold the hair twists for you… feel free to use a gator clip or something to hold them.

Triple Twistbacks into Ponytail

Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, 1 regular hairband, 1 decorative hairband, Pomade (if needed for crisp twistbacks), hairspray if desired.

Time Requirement:  5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

If you like this style, be sure to let us know!

Happy Hairdoing!
