So I have a Pinterest style board for HAIR where I occasionally pin ideas for my girls’ hair (they’re 7 and 5 years old). There are so many cool hairstyles for long hair – it’s making me grow my hair out, just so I can try them! Meanwhile, my girls are my guinea pigs. Here’s a few we’ve attempted lately:
Maiden Braids – these are a keeper – - fun but not too complicated, and they look great:
You basically do several regular braids on each side, then wrap them over the top of the head and pin them. Then we pulled up the back and did a few pin curl things. You can find the full tutorial at The Glamour Depot:
No Heat Curls - everyone’s doing these, so we had to give a go. And for us it was a big fail! We used wet hair, so I’m thinking that might have been the issue – - I want to give it a try again.
But the ones over at MichaelaNoelle look awesome, so check out that tutorial and tell me if it works for you:
Hair Bow (literally) – I whipped this up one day without consulting the tutorial – it’s cute and fun. I think I could have done an even better job if I would have looked over how to make it instead of just winging it.
Okay, so I can’t find the original tutorial – I think the site that this one links to might have taken the steps from another site, so I’ll just point you to my Pin URL instead – sorry about that. I like how they only used a chunk of hair from each side instead of the whole half-up.
3 Pony Pincurls – LOVED this one. So easy, just a couple of minutes. But looks amazing.
Basically you just put the hair into 3 low messy ponytails (where you only pull the hair halfway through). Then pin big chunks all around. You can read more of the details of the tutorial at Glamour.
Anyways, do you have any other hairstyles we should try?? Let me know and we’ll give it ago!
