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.

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}.

DIY Faux Waterfall Headband

February 22, 2015

Since Bailey has cheer in the mornings, and early-morning seminary before that, she has to get up at 4:45 am to get ready for school.  As such, she’s become a master at quick and easy hairstyles, and this DIY Faux Waterfall Braid Headband is one she absolutely loves!

Faux Waterfall Braid Headband

This hairstyle is one Bailey has been wearing a lot lately, and it literally only takes 2 minutes to create! In fact, it is so easy that even a daddy can do it! Learn how by clicking the video below…

If you know how to create a simple 3-strand braid, you can do this! This is also a perfect hairstyle if you are growing out your bangs, as the faux braid keeps them out of your face in that in-between growing phase {with your bangs becoming the waterfall-en strands}.

Faux Waterfall Braid Headband Faux Waterfall Braid HeadbandAt the end of the tutorial, Bailey also shares a few tricks to help keep the waterfall strands looking great!

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

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin with your hair curled {Bailey used a flat iron to get her curls}…
  2. On your preferred side, create a deep side part {it needs to be very deep, we started near the end of one eyebrow}…
  3. Next, create a small section of hair next to the deep part line and begin a regular 3-strand braid…
  4. Braid down about 8 inches and secure the braid with a small hair elastic…
  5. On the side of the braid closest to the crown, you will be working with the backside bumps along the braid, also called the elbows…
  6. Grab the outside edge of the very first stitch and pull it away from the braid a ittle bit, and sticking your pointer finger and thumb through the hole you just created…
  7. Now, grab a small section of hair from the front of your head by your forehead and pull it through the loop and towards the back of your head…
  8. Continue Steps #6-7 for each elbow of the braid, until you have reached the end of your other eyebrow and used up all your bangs {usually 5-6 sections}…
  9. Next, take the end of the braid and tuck it under the hair on the side/back, and secure into place with a bobby pin…
  10. Allow the hair to fall back over the top of the braid…
  11. Lift up the waterfall strands on top, and using a rat-tooth comb, tease the underside of the hair to keep the strands laying straight back and volumized…
  12. Optional: Feel free to pancake the front elbows of the braid to create and added pop and accent to the braid.
  13. Add hairspray.

How to Get Diffused Curls

February 16, 2015

You’ve likely seen a recurring style theme on me in most of our videos going back for years. I love to wear curls and waves! Viewers have been asking for these tutorials for a long time, yet we hadn’t actually filmed one for my favorite curly style… until today!

_N0A0141

This week, we are showing you how to get salon-quality Diffused Curls at home! I was inspired to do it by our participation in Suave Professionals’ Style It Yourself program. Yes, this technique is my secret weapon… and has to be one of our most-requested tutorials ever!

Simply click below to see the video tutorial!

To see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our CGH App, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHDiffusedCurls

The steps to this technique are very easy. All you need to begin is damp hair, an excellent curl-defining mousse, and a hair dryer {with a diffuser attachment}.

You’ll notice that my damp hair starts with a little bit of wave, I want to add a more voluminous curl without using direct heat. I’ve seen girls with more straight hair than I have get beautiful curl using this technique. {My daughter Kamri is a good example!}

Diffused Curls

I then add Suave Professionals Luxe Curl Mousse to my hair, making sure that I get it in the base of the hair, and then drag it down the ends.

Diffused Curls

The diffuser is essential, as it slows down the air and disperses it evenly from the dryer while its fingers gently separate the hair strands without blowing out your curl. Using this technique without good product and the diffuser {using a hair dryer only} will likely leave your hair frizzy.

_N0A0027

It is important to scrunch the hair with your hand as you dry it, which combined with the product, is what helps lock in the curl.

Diffused Curl

Once the hair is nearly dry, I flip my head back up and set my part line. Then I finalize the curls around my face with the dryer, and there is the final look!

Diffused Curls Diffused Curls Diffused Curls

Sometimes it’s not always about the style, but the base! You know that look that many updos have, with a beautiful curly base? You can use these curls for that, and any number of hairstyle combinations {accent braids, fishtail braids, buns, Dutch Braids, twists, French braids, pancake braids, side braids, etc}. You can now up your hair game knowing this curl technique!

Items Needed: Hair dryer, diffuser attachment, Suave Professionals Luxe Curl Mousse, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 7-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin with damp hair…
  2. Add in mousse, I use a generous amount ensuring that I have a little spread all over my thick hair {the mousse will help define the curls, but will still leave the hair soft and frizz resistant}…
  3. Grab your blow dryer and add the diffuser attachment {a diffuser helps to disperse the air coming out of the blow dryer.  Without it, the air is too strong and will blow your curls out of shape and cause them to frizz.  The little fingers on the diffuser will also help to separate the hair as it dries}…
  4. Next, flip your head upside down and shake it a few times {this allows the hair and any curl you have to settle into its natural fall pattern}…
  5. Turn the blow dryer to medium, and begin drying at the ends of your hair…
  6. Gently move the diffuser in and out of your hair in an upward motion {don’t be too forceful with your hair}.
  7. Then, while drying, take your free hand and gently “scrunch” your hair as it dries {this, along with the product, is what helps lock in curls}…
  8. As you reach the top of your head, use the diffuser to dry your roots a bit {you can do this by placing the diffuser closer to the roots for just a second or two}…
  9. Continue this pattern on all then air until it is about 85% dry…
  10. Then, flip your head back up and set your part line as well as the front curls around the face {if I need a little more curl, I make sure to diffuse a bit more around my face and scrunch with my hand.  This is all specific to your personal taste, and how much curl and structure you want.  Remember that this is a NATURAL curl style so it’s not meant to be perfect or too uniform.  The beauty in the style lies in the unique curl patterns and definition brought out by the mousse}…
  11. Depending on your hair, the curl may look too voluminous. Don’t worry, your hair will settle after a few minutes…
  12. At this point, you can add in a little hairspray for extra hold, and to finish the look.
  13. Add in an accent braid to complete the look {if desired}.
