Although this hairstyle is specially for all my short-haired people out there, it works great on long hair as well. (: Let’s get started–

*************************************

Items needed: 1 small hair elastic, 4-5 bobby pins (as needed) ~ time needed: 4-5 minutes Difficulty: medium

*************************************

1.) Start by parting your hair in a side part.

2.) Grab a small section of hair a couple inches behind your hairline on the “light” side of your part.

3.) Begin doing a lace dutch-braid. All this means is that you are going to do a regular dutch-braid except ONLY grab hair from the crown of your head.

4.) Once you braid a few inches back you are going to keep braiding across the back of your head. Remember to only add in hair from the crown of your head. So it should look like this.

5.) As you continue to braid, start adding strands from near the front of your hair, but only add strands a couple inches behind your hairline, so it will be even with the other side. Once you reach about where my braid is, don’t add any more strands and just braid down and secure with your small elastic.

6.) Pancake your braid by gently pulling on the outer edges of your braid. Also, if you have layers like me, you might need to add bobby pins to keep the hairstyle in place. If there is some puffiness or strands sticking up near the crown of your head, add bobby pins as well.

Items needed: 2 tiny hair elastics, 5-6 bobby pins (as needed) ~~ time needed: 5-8 mins Difficulty: easy

2.) Then grab a section of hair a few inches behind your hairline. Do a dutch braid. You can see how to do a dutch braid by going to this postIMG_8134

3.) Pancake the dutch braid, so that it looks fuller. Then repeat step 2-3 on the other side.

4.) Pick up a section of hair and bobby pin your braid underneath it. (the hair you picked up will cover the end of the braid and bobby pins.) Repeat this step on the other side.

Pull-through Braided Half-up Hairstyle for Short Hair

Hello hello, Sabrina here! I am super excited to show you all how to do the pull-through braided half-up hairstyle. I got my hair cut short recently, and it’s a big change, but I am loving it so much. For all you short-haired people out there, I know sometimes it can be really hard to style short hair and be versatile, so I hope this style helps you out. (:

Items needed: 5-6 tiny hair elastics (I recommend ones that are close to the color of your hair so you won’t see them as much. I used black), 7-8 bobby pins or as many as you need; Time: about 10 minutes; Skill Level: easy-medium.

1.) Gather a small section of hair at the front of your head and secure with an elastic. Repeat this step right behind the pony-tail you just made.

 

2.) Now we’re going to start on the pull-through braid. Split the first ponytail into two equal sections. Then wrap or pull those pieces around the second ponytail. Secure those two pieces with a third elastic. I added more hair to those two pieces in the back to make a bigger pony-tail because I have layers and my hair is so short, but that is not necessary if your hair is longer. Now go to the second pony-tail, split it in half and pull those two sections around the third pony-tail and secure with another elastic behind the third pony-tail. This step might sound a bit confusing, but I promise it will make so much more sense when you look at the picture.

 

3.) Bobby pin each side down if it is sticking up a bit. Just this makes a cute hairstyle as well!

4.) Grab a small piece of hair next to the pull-through braid. You can grab directly at the front but I prefer to leave the very front hairs down for facial framing. Now begin to do a regular 3-strand braid. You can reference Emma’s post.

 

Repeat this step on the other side.

5.) Your hair should now look something like this.

 

6.) Grab the braids and bring them back and grab the two pony-tails and begin to secure all of them with one elastic except only pull half way through, so there is a big loop.

 

7.) Grab a piece from the loop and pull it forward and pin it down to start your messy-bun.

 

8.) Repeat this step in all directions until you have reached a messy bun to your desired liking.

And here’s the final look!


I think this hairstyle is super cute, and it looks especially adorable in this fall season and the upcoming winter season! One of the best things about this hairstyle is that it looks great on long hair as well, and you can dress it up or down.

Well, I hope you all liked this hairstyle, let me know what you thought and/or if you have any questions. Happy hairstyling!

See ya!

Hat Hair! (3 Easy DIY Baseball Cap Hairstyles)

Hey hey Everyone, it’s Sabrina!

I’m super excited to show you all how to do these 3 easy DIY baseball cap hairstyles! I love these hairstyles because they are simple, cute, and look great with your baseball cap! Let’s get started!


1st hairstyle: items needed: baseball cap, 1 hair band, 1 small hair elastic, 1-2 bobby pins.

1.) Gather your hair and tie it into a pony-tail low enough so that it can fit through the pony-tail holder in your hat. Put your hat on and pull your pony-tail through the pony-tail holder.

2.) Grab a section of hair from your pony-tail and do an inside-out braid. To do this, just do a regular braid, but instead of crossing the strands over, cross them under. Secure with your small hair-elastic. To learn how to do a regular 3 strand braid, you can reference Emma’s post.

 (please excuse the thread on my hat!)

3.) Next pancake your braid to make it look bigger and fuller. To do this, gently pull on the outer edges of your braid until you get your desired look. Then grab a small piece of hair and wrap it around your elastic band, and bobby pin into place. 

And there you have it! First hairstyle-check!


2nd Hairstyle: items needed: baseball cap, alligator clip (or regular clip), 2 small hair elastics.

1.) Part your hair into a middle part and clip one side with your alligator clip to keep it out of the way.

2.) Grab a piece from the front of the un-clipped side and begin to do a dutch-braid straight back. You can leave some pieces of hair down in the front of your face for face framing if you would like. End the dutch braid at the crown of your head, and then continue braiding down and secure with an elastic. To learn how to do a dutch braid, you can reference our video in the dutch flip through hairstyle.

3.) Repeat on the other side and then pancake the braids (gently pull on the outer edges of the braid to make it look fuller.)

4.) Finally, put on your hat!

2nd hat hairstyle-done!


Now for the third and final baseball cap hairstyle. This is one is my personal favorite. (:

Items needed: baseball cap, 1 alligator clip (or regular clip), 1 hair band, 4 small hair elastics, 2-4 bobby pins.

1.) Repeat step one from the 2nd hat hairstyle but instead of using an alligator clip, secure that side with your hair band to keep it out of the way.

2.) Grab a small section of hair from the side that is not tied, and do a regular 3 strand braid. You can reference Emma’s post on how to do one if you would like.

3.) Flip your micro-braid over to the other side and clip it to keep it out of the way.

4.) Now, grab the rest of the hair on that side and do a fishtail braid all the way down and secure with an elastic. Pancake the braid if you would like it to look fuller/looser. You can reference Clare’s post on how to do a fishtail braid.

4.) Now unclip your micro braid and stack it on top or your fishtail and tie with an elastic. (You can now take off the other elastic so that there is only one left) To help the braid stay stacked on your fishtail, you can add one or two bobby pins as needed.

    

4.) Repeat steps 2-4 on the other side.

5.) And finally, put on your baseball cap!


Bam! There you have it, 3 easy diy baseball cap hairstyles. If baseball caps aren’t your style, then these hairstyles also look amazing without one.

Well, I hope you enjoyed these hairstyles–please leave a comment and let me know if you have any questions! Which hairstyle was your favorite?
