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

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.

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).

Single Front Twist | Short Hairstyles

August 25, 2010

Here is a very simple and cute hairstyle idea for keeping your bangs out of your eyes. It can also be done on any length of hair (short or long), whether or not there are layers, and can be done in under a few minutes.

I have promised that I will be adding more short hairstyles, given that I and my youngest daugther have short hair. Again, since the hair is shorter, you really are limited on what you can do in terms of braids, etc. Moms, this one really is for you! I wear this all the time!!!

Single Front Twist Hairstyle

Items Needed: Brush or comb, two bobby pins, hairspray (if desired).

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Easy Hairstyles: Triple Twistback Side Ponytail

July 13, 2010

So my girls have totally been into ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ (SYTYCD) lately and I noticed that for the first few weeks the girls were sporting different variations of twistback hairstyles.  Twistbacks are easy to do, so I thought I would feature one that I saw the most on the show, as it is super cute and easy to do.  Here it is…

Triple Twistbacks into Ponytail

This hairstyle can be used on little girls, tweens, and teens. Even moms can use this hairdo! The style is particularly fun, because you can incorporate hair twistbacks any way (and quantity) you desire. {Be mindful, that thin hair will make the twists look very skinny, so you may only opt for one twistback per side. Using Pomade on the twisted strands will help you reduce fly-aways, too.}

As always, in hairstyles like this, if your daughter cannot hold the hair twists for you… feel free to use a gator clip or something to hold them.

Time Requirement:  5 minutes
