Egg Tails | Easter Hairstyles

Two years ago we posted a photo tutorial of our Egg Tails, which were a huge hit for little girls at Easter Egg hunts or at family parties, Crazy Hair Day, etc.

It has turned out to be one of our fun Easter Hairstyles (although not appropriate, in my opinion, for Easter Sunday)!

Egg Tails | Easter Pigtails

Yesterday, I took a Facebook poll asking viewers if they thought I should do a video tutorial of this style before Easter and the response was overwhelmingly… YES!!! Sooooo, we scrambled to find the supplies and filmed the ponytails this morning.

I am telling you, this hairstyle is a definite conversation starter! I guarantee that you will have people stopping you in the street trying to see exactly what it is that you did!

In fact, the Egg Tail video tutorial is already getting a great response on YouTube! {Two years ago a viewer’s daughter was at an Easter Egg hunt wearing this style and was photographed for her local newspaper!}

Egg Tails | Crazy Hair Day

In our original photo tutorial two years ago, we used full-size Easter eggs.  This time, we used the mini eggs so that we could fit three in each ponytail.  It turned out super cute.  (Be sure to start looking today for these mini eggs, because they are hard to find!  Hobby Lobby had been carrying them, but we found ours at WalMart.)

We also enhanced the hairstyle to include a trick we used last year to help keep the eggs from falling out.  You will have to watch the video to see exactly what it was!

Before you view the video, though, be sure to review the old photo tutorial (“Egg Tail” link above) beforehand just to make sure you understand each step well.  Then after seeing the video, you will be a pro!

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hairspray, 36 clear elastics, 8 hair bands, 6 mini plastic Easter eggs, and two ribbons (your choice of color).

Time Requirement: 20+ minutes

Skill Level: Hard

Happy Hairdoing!
