Two-Leaf Clover | St. Patrick’s Day Hairstyles

OK, time for another St. Patty’s Day hairstyle! This is the first in a series of clovers. I will start with a two-leaf clover. This is personally not my favorite as I like the 3-leaf clover better, but you can decide for yourself


To see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our CGH App, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHTwoLeafClover


Items Needed: Brush, comb, spray bottle, hairspray, 3 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

This is a picture of how the ponytails should NOT be spaced. Can you see the difference???

**NOTE** This was my first attempt and the ponytails on this try were WAY TOO FAR APART! You will want to do them closer.


Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1.  Start by parting the hair straight down the middle. You can zig-zag the top part if you want, but leave the back in a straight part. Pull each section of hair into a tight ponytail. Ponytails MUST be close together (about 2-3 inches apart maximum).
  2. Flip each ponytail sideways starting near the part and flipping towards ears. You can flip by using a topsy-tail tool (I find this to be the least painful) or by loosening the ponytail a little, then create a hole in the middle of hair between head and rubber band… flipping the whole ponytail through the hole. If you need a refresher with better pictures click *here*.
  3. Separate the ponytails into two even pieces.
  4. Twist them tight… outward away from the rubber band to create the curve shape you need. Have your DD hold one side while you do the other ponytail into twists.
  5. Pull all the ends together to form two heart shapes. Use a rubber band to secure all ends together. Use bobby pins where needed to hold the rubber band in place or secure the curves of the heart.
  6. Add a green ribbon or flower if you want.

Happy Hairdoing!
