3 Super Simple DIY Styles

This week’s post isn’t really fancy – these hairstyles are for those days when you just don’t have the time! 🙂 Each of them is a simple way to accent your hair in under a minute, and they’ll work on nearly any length of hair. I hope you enjoy these DIY ideas! (To enlarge smaller images, just click on them 😉 )

#1: Twist back + accessory

For this pretty look, just take a section of hair, twist it, and clip it back with an accessory of your choice.

#2: Mini rope twist

 

Take a section of hair and split it in two. Twisting the two sections to the left, (as in the #1 style, Twist back + accessory) place the left piece over the right one. Take the new left strand in your left hand, and the new right strand in your right, and repeat.

(Sorry that there aren’t any step-by-step photos with this. If you’d like to see a video, try having a look at Sophia’s post, DIY Overnight Curls/Waves. The method of a rope twist is nearly the same as a lace rope twist, just don’t gather up hair as you go.)

#3: Faux fringe

For those of you who (like me :D) aren’t game to get a real fringe, a faux fringe is a fun way to get a different look, without actually cutting any hair. Just take a section of hair at the front of the head, smooth it out to one side, and clip it back. To hide the clip, make sure you clip it underneath the hair falling on your shoulders.

And that’s this week’s post – three super simple DIY styles. Let me know in the comments what you thought of this post; hope you all have a great Easter! 🙂

Waterfall Twist

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to show you all a great hairstyle for looking nice with minimal effort. Out of the ‘nice’ hairstyles I do on myself, this is one of my favourites because it’s so easy but looks so pretty. (I’m doing it on my sister today) The waterfall twist I’ll show you today is similar to the beautiful waterfall braid-style in Sophia’s post Waterfall Twist and Reverse Fishtail, but it uses two pieces of hair instead of three to create a lovely twist. (If you like this post, I’m sure you’ll love her combo hairstyle!) This hairstyle is definitely DIY as well, and looks great on just about any length of hair. I hope you enjoy it! 😀

Items needed: hair tie, accessory (optional)

Skill level: easy

Time: 5 minutes

Step-by-step:

  1. Part hair as desired (I used a middle part) and separate out a piece of hair at the front of the head, on one side of the part.
  2. Take another section of hair next to it, and wrap/place it over the first strand.
  3. Drop the first strand, pick up a piece of hair next to it and wrap/place it over the strand you’re still holding. Repeat until you reach the back of the head and clip out of the way.
  4. Repeat on the other side, tie the two ends together, and accessorise as desired.

And there you have it! Because this style is so loose and gentle anyway, you don’t really need to pancake it, unless you have fairly long, heavy hair. If your hair’s a bit too short to do a waterfall twist all the way around your head, it looks really nice if you just go partway round, and pin the end back with something pretty.
