Ever since Valentine’s Day, I have been playing with some hairstyling ideas for St. Patty’s Day. I have to admit that though I have come up with several ideas, none have been amazing enough to be worth posting!
I was getting quite frustrated by the whole thing, but yesterday two things happened: #1, I got my first comment asking for St. Patrick’s Day hairstyles, and #2, my husband gave me a few more ideas I thought I would try out. I tried them and they worked much better! How cool is that??? So… today I am going to start my series of St. Patrick’s Day hairstyles. I’m going to begin by showing you the Three-Leaf Clover Twists.
To see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our CGH App, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHThreeLeafCloverTwists
Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, hairspray, water spray bottle, pomade, 1 regular rubber band, 7 small elastics (the clear kind like ortho’s use on teeth), and green ribbon.
Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes.
Skill Level: Medium
- Begin by parting hair on left (or right if that is your natural part). Pull hair back into a tight ponytail and secure with the regular rubber band.
- Divide the ponytail into three even sections of hair.
- Put a small clear elastic around each section about 1.5 inches above where the ponytail is secure.
- Repeat these steps on the other two sections of hair.
- You will now have three heart shaped pieces. Pull all of these ends together and secure together with one elastic. You should have a three leaf clover.
- At this point, I added a few bobby pins to help the heart/clover leaf to stay in place and secure the rubber bands. Add a green ribbon as an accessory if you want.
