Braided Bow Fan Bun – Easy Messy Bun Tutorial – Hairstyles For Girls

admin : June 18, 2018 6:04 pm : Long hairstyles, Videos

This easy bun is so simple and quick to make, you’ll love it! A dutch braid, combined with a popular fan messy bun technique gives this standard rolled double bun a fun bow look!

This cute hairstyle could be worn for casual occasions, or for more formal events.  It would be great for cheer leading, dance, gymnastics, soccer, track, etc.

My daughter often wears this tucked bun (without the braid) as a quick hairstyle for school. It is a great option for second day hair, or hair that isn’t looking so great and is perfect for putting your hair up quickly for after school sports.  But recently she was wearing a dutch braid (as shown at the first of our tutorial) with her hair down. When she pulled her hair up into her “go to” bun after school, this cute style was created.  We both noticed the top of the bun looked adorably like a bow with the braid in the center!

If french braiding or dutch braiding isn’t your thing, or you don’t have time for that… You could start with a standard ponytail and add a regular 3 strand braid accent before making the bun for a similar look. And, as mentioned in our video, you could place the braid so that it shows in the bottom layer of this bun as well for a double braid look. This bun can be made to look sleek and smooth or more rough and messy, depending on your event and preference. 

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:

  • 1 medium size ponytail holder or hair tie (similar to your hair color would be best.)
  • 1 small hair elastic for the bottom of the braid.
  • Bobby pins (optional.)
  • Finishing hairspray (optional.)

Greek Goddess Ladder Braid, Wedding and Prom Hairstyles – Hairstyles For Girls

admin : June 18, 2018 6:04 pm : Long hairstyles, Videos

Today we are sharing a beautiful “Greek Goddess” inspired hairstyle tutorial featuring braids, twists, and curls, creating a lovely Princess Hairstyle!  This would be a pretty hairstyle for weddings, Prom, Homecoming, recitals, school dances, church, communions and other special occasions.

Greek Goddess Ladder Braid, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

We have combined a lace french braid feathering technique with rope braids (or twist braids) to create the vertical ladder braid on this half up hairstyle. We love how simple and elegant this style turned out.

As mentioned in our video, we used our curling wand to create her loose curls for this hairstyle. Click here for our curling wand tutorial.  You could also crimp or wave your hair if you desire to achieve texture and volume. If you want your style to be more voluminous, you could tease her hair before placing the ladder braid.  A bubble effect between the braids could be achieved by using a rat tail comb as shown in our video tutorial (above.) Bobby pins placed under the twists would help to hold your bubbled hair in place if you decide to go for that look.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:

  • 1 medium size, clear hair elastic
  • Several clips or hair ties to temporarily section and hold the hair while you are working.
  • Finishing hairspray 
  • Curling wand, crimper, waver, etc. (affiliate)

How To Make A Graduation Lei Using Gummy Worm Braids! – Hairstyles For Girls

admin : June 18, 2018 6:03 pm : Long hairstyles, Videos

How to make a cool lei for graduation, a luau, or other celebrations using gummy worm candies!  This is an easy, inexpensive, DIY, homemade graduation gift that every graduate would love to wear… and eat!

Our oldest son is graduating from High School today actually. (Congratulations class of 2018!) So, we wanted to share a fun Hawaiian and Polynesian inspired candy lei we chose to make him for his graduation ceremony.  And since this is normally a braiding website, we thought this would fit right in!

Graduation Candy Lei Using Gummy Worms Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

The awesome thing about gummy worms is that they come in all different colors and varieties, so you can pick out the worms that match your school colors or event.  You could also make a pretty multicolored lei using random colors if you want.  These necklaces would be great for both boys and girls.

Supplies needed:

*Plastic wrap / Saran wrap.  2 pieces, 40-80 inches each (depending on how long you want your lei to be.)

*Gummy worms.  We only needed one bag.  If you are going to be picking out certain colors from a multicolored bag, you will probably need more than one.


*Ribbon (Matching your school colors.)

*One clear elastic, or you can tie the plastic wrap in a knot if you prefer.

We want to thank our friend who showed us how to make these fancy leis several years ago.  We have used them for several parties since!

Checkerboard Dutch Braids Hairstyle Tutorial. Easier Than It Looks! – Hairstyles For Girls

admin : June 18, 2018 6:03 pm : Long hairstyles, Videos

This checkerboard braid is easier than it looks and is so fun to make! Hope you love it.

We have shown several “checkerboard type braids” on this blog that you may have seen in the past…

The 5 strand checkerboard braid with ribbon,

5 strand checkerboard french braid,

and Checkerboard fishtail braid.

As you might have noticed, we love woven hairstyles! For today’s style we tried to come up with something that has the woven checkerboard look, but isn’t as difficult to create as some of the 5 strand braids or complicated zipper braiding techniques necessary to make most of these checkerboard braids.  If you can make a feathered dutch braid and simple 3 strand braids, you should be able to accomplish this one.

Checkerboard Dutch Braids Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

Although fairly simple to create, this hairstyle looks so intricate and is sure to bring compliments and attention!

  • Several hair ties and clips to temporarily hold the braids while you are working.
  • Gel, pomade or other product to help control flyaways.
