Rope Twisted Bun | Hairstyles for Prom

March 29, 2015

Today’s hairstyle tutorial is part of our Prom series, where we show you cute hairstyles you can wear to your Prom, Homecoming, or other formal event.

Rope Twisted Bun | Prom Hairstyles

The twins were in LA this week to attend the 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards, so Kamri offered to sit in. Simply click below to watch the video tutorial…

Rope twists are the easiest braids to create. This undo uses two rope twists that are then wrapped around each other and secured into a high bun. By fluffing the rope twists and leaving out a few curly strands/tendrils in the front by the face, this becomes the perfect Prom hairstyle!

For athletic events, all you have to to twist your rope twists tightly, adding pomade or hairspray to them, and then wrapping them tightly into a bun and securing them. {For sports, or ballet, do not fluff the rope braids as I did in the video… keep them tight.}

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 2 ponytail holders, 2 small hair elastics, 8-10 bobby pins, hairspray and accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by parting hair in the middle of head, and dividing into two even sections {for an older look, add curls and tease the hair before creating the ponytails.  You can also leave a few curly tendrils to frame the face}…
  2. Take each section and secure it into a ponytail on the back of the head with a ponytail holder {make sure to keep the ponytails as close to the middle part line as possible}…
  3. Now create a rope twist in each ponytail {you do this by dividing each ponytail into two even strands and then twisting the right most strand clockwise tightly one full turn, and then crossing it under the left most strand, repeating over and over again}…
  4. Then secure each rope twist with a hair elastic…
  5. Optional Step: If you are using this hairstyle for athletics or dance you can leave the rope twists tight.  If you are using this hairstyle for prom or an updo you may want to loosen the hair a tiny bit at this stage by pulling gently on each side of the twist to separate the them and make them more full looking…
  6. Now take the right-most twist and loop it under the left twist, up and over the elastic, and over the top of the two ponytail bases…
  7. Secure the end with a bobby pin to hold it in place while you what the 2nd twist…
  8. Now take the left rope twist and take it clockwise under the right ponytail, and up and over the two elastics, securing it with a bobby pin…
  9. Go back and secure the remaining hair with bobby pins until the whole bun feels secure and with the desired look…
  10. Add any accessories and hairspray {if desired}.

The twins found a lost video deep on their hard drive, one that they had filmed early last summer that made its way onto their BrooklynAndBailey YouTube channel last Wednesday. It was a Baby Food Challenge, where they had to taste baby food and guess what it was! Be sure to watch the entire video by clicking below!

Dutch Accent Ponytail | Short Hairstyles

March 27, 2015

So, a few weeks ago, Bailey posted an “Outfit-of-the-Day” {OOTD} photo on Instagram of the clothing she put together and everyone commented by asking what it was that she had done with her hair. We’ve never filmed a tutorial for this hairstyle, as it was one she had been making on her own, so we decided post her video of it today!

Dutch Accent Ponytail | Short Hairstyles

I love this quick Dutch Accent Ponytail hairstyle because it is so easy to create and something you can do in under two to three minutes in the morning. It can also be done on either wet or dry hair.

You can watch the tutorial below…

If you know how to create a simple Dutch Braid, this tutorial will be very easy for you. You can incorporate this in any number of combinations and choose to also hair wrap the ponytail, if you wish.

I love seeing Bailey step into my shoes on our blog and YouTube channel. The grow up so fast, don’t they? She’s developed such a cute on-screen personality, and I think Bailey is more comfortable filming tutorials than I am! Here are a few more shots…

  3. While loosely holding the hair, go back and pancake the elbows of the braid to your liking…
  4. Then go proceed and finish off the strands with a simple braid {a regular three strand braid}, securing it with an elastic band…
  5. Next, pull the rest of your hair up into a ponytail, high or low, depending on your taste, and don’t forget to add the braid into your ponytail before you securing it with a ponytail holder…
  6. Fee free to go back again and touch up the pancaking in the Dutch braid, and section out a few thin strands of wispy hair on the sides of the face, between the temple and ear, and at the forehead corners, to soften the look…
  7. {Optional} Add a hair wrap to hide the ponytail holder, and add hairspray and accessory.

Pull-Through Fishtail Braid Combo

March 15, 2015

Our hairstyle today is inspired by both a Pull-Through Braid and a Fishtail Braid, beautifully combined into a combo that we first saw from Blohaute on Instagram. Brooklyn fell in love with this hairstyle first, and brought it to me volunteering to be my model! Doesn’t it look great?

Pull-Through Fishtail Braid Combo

You can watch the video tutorial for this braid by clicking below…

This isn’t a complex braided hairstyle, although it really does look that way. We’ve shown you how to create a Pull-Through Braid before, and by now everyone hopefully knows how to Fishtail Braid.

Today we are blending these two braids into a gorgeous combo that we are certain you will love!

You can style this hair dry, like I did here, or wet. Feel free to also use a pomade, gel, or spray wax if you want a slicked-back look that would be perfect for dance or other athletics.

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 5 small hair elastics, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 8-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. Begin by teasing the crown area of hair, and pulling it back into a poof or pompadour {hair parting for this section should be about 2 inches above the ears}…
  2. Next, secure this section of hair with an elastic and clip forward out of the way…
  3. Then part off another section of hair about 1 inch above the ears,  and secure them together with an elastic…
  4. Now, unclip the 1st ponytail of hair and split it in half, straddling the sections on either side of the 2nd ponytail…
  5. Clip the second ponytail up and out of the way…
  6. Gather another section of hair from the tops of the ears back {grab this hair and combine it with the end strands from the 1st ponytail, and secure with an elastic}…
  7. Let the 2nd ponytail of hair split in half and straddle each side of the 3rd ponytail, and then clip the 3rd ponytail out of the way…
  8. Repeat these steps over and over until you run out of hair {generally 4-5 ponytails}…
  9. On the last section, grab the ends of the ponytail, allowing them split and fall on either side of the 5th ponytail, and secure them underneath with an elastic…
  10. At this point, I go back and pancake the top pull-through braid sections, tugging on the elbows until they are about 2-3 times their original size…
  11. I then take all of the hair at the bottom of the pull-through braid, split it in half, and begin a REVERSE Fishtail {taking hair from the outer strands and crossing them under and into the opposing strand}…
  12. Once you have completely the fishtail go back and pancake the edges to give it a nice puffy look and an seamless integration into the pull-through braid above.
  13. Add hairspray or accessories {if desired}.

2-in-1 Boxer Braid No-Heat Curls

March 08, 2015

Time for another no-heat curls tutorial! Today, we’re excited to take part in Suave Professionals’ Style-It-Yourself program by teaching you how to get salon-quality curls at home using no heat!

Boxer Braids No-Heat Curls

I do go to the gym in the mornings, so I often want to wear a tight style that is perfect for an active day, but later in the day I want to look great! This 2-in-1 look is perfect for that with cute Boxer Braids for the active part of the day and beautiful no-heat curls later on!  {We tend to use this method for overnight curls, as well}.

To get the braids and curls, all you need is damp hair, curl-defining serum gel, and Boxer Braids. The product helps condition my hair as a serum would, and also help define the curls like a gel would, but doesn’t leave the hair feeling “crunchy” or stiff when I am done.

Boxer Braids No-Heat Curls Boxer Braids No-Heat Curls Boxer Braids No-Heat Curls

What I really love is that you can use these curls as a base for any number of hairstyle combinations {updos, buns, twists, French braids, Dutch braids, fishtail braids, pancake braids, accent braids, side braids, etc}.

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 hair elastic, Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Curl Defining Gel Serum, hairspray {optional}, silk scarf {optional to cover the hair if sleeping the the braids overnight}.

Time Requirement: 7-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin with damp hair, not soaking wet, but not dry either {you can u achieve this by letting hair dry for 30 minutes after showering, or by spritzing hair with a spray bottle}…
  2. Now add in some Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Serum to the hair, I usually use two pumps, one on each side {the product will help condition the hair and help define the curls}.
  3. Next, part the hair down the middle, or just slightly off to one side in the front, and secure one of the sides out of the way…
  4. Begin a French Braid on the free side, make sure to use small sections so that you achieve maximum curls {if you want bigger, more-full curls, simply use bigger sections in your braiding}…
  5. When you reach about 3 inches from the bottom of the braid, secure temporarily with an elastic….
  6. Repeat on the other side.
  7. Now combine the two braids near the nape of the neck, re-separate the new strand into three sections and continue on with a simple braid, securing with your hair elastic…
  8. Allow the braids to air dry while you are at the gym, for several hours, or even overnight…
  9. Undo the braids {you can use a little dry shampoo to refresh the roots if you went to the gym}…
  10. Flip head upside down and gently finger comb the curls to loosen the a little…
  11. Flip head right side up and set your part line {watch for my parting trick in the video, which gives maximum volume}, and add hairspray {if desired}.

Flower Bun Hawk | Hairstyles for Dance

March 06, 2015

Today’s hairstyle tutorial is a guest post from one of my best friends, fellow mommy, and travel buddy! Her name is Jill Ehat, and she’s an up-and-comer braider with a popular Instagram!

Flower Bun Hawk | Dance Hairstyles

I have known Jill since 2007, and she and her husband have such a cute little family, including adorable blonde twins! {We’ve actually used Jill’s twins before, in a Tinkerbell Bun tutorial for Disney!}

Since Jill’s girls have such beautiful blonde hair, something our family does not have, we asked her if she wouldn’t mind contributing a few of her favorite athletic/gym/dance hairstyle tutorials here on CGH! She agreed! Since her girls are active in lots of sports, her tutorials will have more of a focus in those areas.

We’ve all seen this Flower Bun Hawk at dance recitals and cheer competitions, etc, but how many of us actually know how to do it? Today’s the day… this makes the perfect dance hairstyle! Click below to see the video!

Time Requirement: 10-12 minutes

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by teasing the hair, and creating a small pompadour or poof in the front near your forehead, and securing it with bobby pins or an elastic…
  2. Next, section the hair into three even ponytails, securing each with a clear elastic {you can use hair gel or spray wax for extra hold}…
  3. Begin with the top-most ponytail and divide it into three even sections…
  4. Take one section, add a little dry shampoo or spray wax, and tease the roots just slightly {this will add a little grip and help keep the hairstyle in securely}…
  5. Roll this section forward by holding two fingers on the end and wrapping two fingers from the other hand in the hair toward the face {roll it down until it reaches the scalp and then secure using 2 crossed bobby pins}…
  6. Repeat Steps #4-5 on the remaining two sections of Ponytail #1…
  7. Optional Tip:  Add an elastic about 3 inches from the ends of the hair and use this to help keep ends together as you roll the hair down to head.
  8. Repeat Steps #3-5 on the remaining two ponytails, until all three flower buns are pinned into place…
  9. Now go back and pin or tweak any strands that are loose {you can use this time to really make sure each bun takes on the perfect flower shape…
  10. Add hairspray for extra hold, and accessories, if desired.
