Bohemian Braids | Cute Hairstyles

May 17, 2011

For a hairstyle that is quite simple yet elegant looking, I recommend this one.  The style, and variations of it, tends to be very popular with teenagers.

Bohemian Braids (back)

You simply section off four small squares of hair with your rat-tail comb, two near the front of the head and two at the crown (both on either side of the part), and then microbraid the strands.  Rather than rubberband each braid, have your daughter hold the braids as you complete them.

Once you are finished braiding, gather all four braids together and rubberband them.  Then simply comb out the remaining section of the braids so that is blends with the rest of her hair.

Left SideBohemian Braids (Left)

FrontBohemian Braids (Front)

You can do this hairstyle with either straight hair, as I have here, or with waves or curls.   The braids add the perfect accent!  You can also do the front braids closer to the forehead if you wish.  (If you use a flat iron to straighten the hair, please spray on a good heat protectant/conditioner first.) Enjoy!

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, one elastic hairband, spray on conditions to control flyaways, bow or clip (as desired).

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

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…

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).

Glee Hairstyles: Quinn Fabray Tieback

September 08, 2010

So during my summer, during what little free time I had, I became hooked on Fox’s summer repeat of the “Glee” musical TV series. Although the dramatic content is not suitable for children, I have shown my girls a few of the awesome musical numbers and mashups from albums that we all grew up with!

If you watch the series, you will notice that there are quite a few fun braided hairstyles worn by the girls. In my opinion, Dianna Agron’s character Quinn Fabray has the most beautiful styles…

Quinn Fabray Braids

The series shows quite a few messy (loose) braid styles, and Quinn regularly sports a French Front as seen in the above photo.  This hairstyle is perfect for teens/tweens, moms, and little girls. You will also notice that hairstyles like this are extremely popular right now, so I can guarantee that you will receive tons of compliments.

Double French Tieback (rear)

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, spray bottle, one hairband, hairspray, (accessory if desired).

Time Requirement:  3-5 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

The particular hairstyle I show below is a “double variation” of the style seen in Quinn’s photo above, with a tieback to finish it off.  If you choose to vary the style a bit for another day, feel free to try a Dutch Braid version!

Happy Hairdoing!

Flipped Half Ponytail

Funny enough, I filmed this hairstyle in early July and posted it on YouTube a few weeks ago. Many of you know that I just returned from Hawaii on vacation. While flying home, on the plane I watched “The Last Song” with Miley Cyrus. If you have seen the movie, released earlier this year, you will notice that Miley’s character wore this hairstyle during the funeral scene near the end of the film. I thought it looked just as cute on Miley as it does on my girls! I know you will like how easy this hairstyle is to do, and is is perfect for little girls, tweens, teens, and moms! Click below to view the hairstyle tutorial…

Items Required: Rat-tail comb, spray bottle, topsy-tail tool (if you do not want to use your fingers), 1 ponytail holder/band, accessory (if desired).

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!
