Double-Twist Ponytail | Simple Hairstyles

May 31, 2011

If you are looking for an easy trick for the Fishtail Braid, then this ponytail style is just for you! (Although it was not my intention, feedback thus far is that this looks a lot like a fishtail and can be done in half the time.)

What is great about this hairstyle is that it takes literally two to three minutes to complete!  Easy peasy!

I prefer to do this style when the hair is damp, like after a good towel drying after the morning shower.  This helps control the flyaways while you twist until you can add hairspray (you can also use Pomade on the hair before twisting).

We have demonstrated how to do twistbacks like these before, but it was in photo format. You can see things much clearer and in real time by clicking the video below!  Enjoy!

Items Needed:  Rat-tail comb, two hairbands, bow or flower clip (if desired), hairspray (or Pomade, if desired).

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes…

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Single Twistback | Mom Hairstyles

May 16, 2011

I am on a recent mission to provide those of you moms some more simple, yet cute, mommy hairdos!  I mean, we make our girls look cute… but sometimes we forget about ourselves!  Actually, girls of all ages can use this, and it literally takes one minute to complete!

Single Twistback Hairstyle

We call this the Single Twistback, and it can be used to switch up the French Front hairstyle that you are seeing everywhere right now.  I show two ways to finish it off, but you can really use your own imagination and see where it goes!

{Yeah, I can’t really hide it!  I am still sooooo excited about being named as a finalist in the YouTube contest above!  My girls keep asking me where we stand in the voting (it is close), I think the twins are maybe more “into” this friendly competition than I am!  Now, back to the hairstyle…}

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, one rubber hair band, two small bobby pins

Time Requirement: 1-2 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

You can view all the many wonderful video responses and comments here!

Twistbacks into Messy Bun | Mom Hairstyles

April 05, 2011

So many moms ask about the styles that I wear as I film hairstyles on my daughters, and how to do them. When I think about styles for the site, I pretty much only think about hairstyles on my girls. But that should not mean that I should only think about them, right? Moms are important too!

For those of you who asked, this hairstyle is the one I wore in the Lace Braid hairstyle tutorial we uploaded a week ago. I must have received at least a dozen emails about my hairdo, so here it is!

The style is simple to do, and helps keep your bangs out of your face.  Plus, you can do it in only a few minutes before running out the door in the mornings!

Double-Twist Hearts | Valentine's Day Hairstyles

February 08, 2011

*Note from Mindy: Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Let’s see how many V-day hairstyles we can get out on February 14th! Tell as many friends as you can, because we want to see thousands of little hearts walking everywhere!

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *
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.

Forward Twistback into Bun | Updo Hairstyles

December 24, 2010

Interestingly enough, I found the idea for this hairstyle from an article on 2011 Hair Trends which highlights the new trends in high fashion being various forms of twists! They found that Prada, YSL, and Blanc de Chine are all using twist hairstyles in their Spring 2011 fashion shows. Even neater, the author features one of our oldest twist styles from YouTube.

I have always loved using twists in my hairstyles and have many of them listed on this website. What I love about this particular style is that it has a very modern look to it, and it can be used for pretty much any occasion (Prom, Homecoming, ballet, weddings, formal events, etc).

You can actually twist the front section any direction you want, as each provides a little bit of a different look.

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, brush, water bottle, two hairbands, hairspray.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

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

Happy Hairdoing!
