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!

Happy Hairdoing!

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!

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).

Back View…

Side View…

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!

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 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).
