Lace Braided Headband

Hi everyone! My name’s Hannah and I absolutely love doing hairstyles. I’m still learning but I want to share hairstyles I have learnt to anyone who is starting out, because if I can do it, you can do it! In this hairstyle, I’m showing a simple type of head band braid that’s suitable for almost any hair lengths, is super quick and cute and gets the hair out of your face! Have fun πŸ™‚

Items needed: 4 bobby pins, 1-2 hair ties, and hairspray (if desired)

Skill level: easy-medium

Time: 5-10 minutes (depending on your hair length ect.)

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Part your hair to one side.
  2. Grab a small section of hair on one side of the parted line.
  3. Begin lace braiding the hair, only picking up strands on one side (closest to forehead).
  4. Continue braiding until you reach your ear, then continue with a plait.
  5. Secure the ends with a hair tie for now..
  6. Repeat this process with a section of hair on the other side of the part line.
  7. Then bobby pin both plaits under a section of hair on the back of your head.
  8. And you’re done! Feel free to add hairspray and tug on the braid to make it look bigger if you want to.

Diy Dutch Fishtail/Summer Hairstyle

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great summer (or winter as the case may be πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ ) As I’ve said before, I love dutch fishtail braids, and am always trying to incorporate them into a new hairstyle. While I was away after Christmas I came up with this cool updo, with a dutch fishtail on the heavier side of my part, and a normal dutch braid of the lighter side. It’s a nice updo for a hot summer day (I did mine to look a little bit messier, but if you took the extra time to make it a bit more polished, it could be quite a fancy style. πŸ˜‰ )

Items needed: a handful of bobby pins, 2 rubber hair ties, and hairspray (is desired)

Time: 10-15 minutes

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Begin by parting your hair off to one side..
  2. Next start a dutch fishtail braid on the heavy side of the part..
  3. Once you’ve braided up to about your ear, stop adding in hair and finish off with a regular fishtail..
  4. When you reach the ends gently go back and pancake the braid (tug on the edges of the braid for a fuller effect.) Then secure with an elastic..
  5. Now go to the other side of you head a do a regular 3 strand dutch braid, doing the same thing you did with the fishtail, (once you stop adding in hair, finish off with a normal plait and pancake the braid.)
  6. Secure with an elastic..
  7. Now secure the remaining hair that you have out of the braids at the back of your head with a hair tie..
  8. Plait the hair in the ponytail, and secure with a rubber hair tie..
  9. Roll the ponytail-plait into a bun and secure with bobby pins..
  10. All you need to do now is pin the two braids around the bun and you’re good to go! πŸ˜‰

X Dutch Braids

Hey Everyone!

Today I’m going to show you all how to get this super cool look that I made up a few weeks ago. I really love this look since it is super wearable, but really unique.

In the front, it looks like you’re wearing basic dutch braids, but in the back, you’ve got this super cool hairstyle. The beginning is a tad tricky to understand, but stick with me, and you’ll see that in order to complete this look, you only have to know how to Dutch braid.

difficulty: intermediate

time: 10-15 minutes

items needed: 3 rubber bands

 

1.) Begin with a side part. I am parting my hair on the left side of my head, so the right side is referred to as the ‘thicker’ side.

2.) Using one of the rubber bands, pull you hair into a half up. I started my half up from about an inch above my ear, all the way back.

3.) Using your thumb or a comb, start a diagonal line from the top of the thick side of the hair (right side) all the way down to the left. Section of the right side of the diagonal.

4.) Undo the half up, but don’t let your hair down. The top of your hair stays in your original side part, but for the crown area, split it down the middle. (if this proves too difficult, then you can just keep the side part for the entire half up section.) Section off the thin side (left section) of the half up. If you think of your head as a square, the top left corner and the bottom right corner are now sectioned off.

5.) On the thick side (right side) of you hair, pick up a 1 inch section of hair near your hairline. Split into three, and begin a dutch braid. Try to keep it going around your head slightly, rather than straight back.

6.) Once you are past the crown of your head, adjust the braid to go diagonally down your head, gathering hair from the bottom left section. Once you run out of hair, continue with a regular three strand braid, and secure with an elastic.

7.) Pull on the braid gently to pancake it, and make it look fuller.

8.) Let down the two sections of hair (left top section and lower right section.) Starting at the top left section, pick up a 1 inch section of hair, and begin a dutch braid. Once you’ve past the crown of your head, you should have picked up all of the hair from the top left section.

9.) Now that you’ve passed the crown of your head, you’ll notice that the two braids will intersect. To do this, simply continue with a regular three strand braid, until you’ve gone over the first braid.

10.) Now that you’ve passed the first braid, continue your dutch braid, gathering hair from the last section (bottom right.) Once you’ve run out of hair to gather, continue with a three strand braid, all the way down, before securing with an elastic.

11.) The second braid will look much thinner than the first, but that’s okay! Just pull on the edges to pancake it to your liking.

 

…and that’s it! I hope you all enjoy this tutorial. This hairstyle looks complicated, but it’s really not. the hardest part is figuring out the sections. After that, it’s all dutch braiding!
