Double Dutch Braided Updo

I know we have a lot of dutch braids as the base for quite a few hairstyles on here, but its such a versatile braid they are soo many different things you can do with them. Plus, they’re fairly easy to do, which is always a plus 😉 I came up with this particular style when my little sister wanted me to do something special in her hair for her birthday several months ago. It really suited her, and I thought it would make a good tutorial, so today I’m going to show you how to create this easy, double dutch braided updo!

1.Begin by making a middle part all the way from the front of your head to the nape of the neck (you could also do a side part as long as you divide the hair evenly at the back.)

2. Then section one half out of the way for now…

I had my sisters hair slightly damp so I could get all of the tangles out more easily, but it works fine on dry hair!

Now take a section from the front of the section and divide it into three pieces:

And dutch braid all the way down so that the braid goes in a direction as I have done in the picture:


Repeat on the other side of the head…

After you have pancaked both of the braids your hair should look roughly like this:

Now take the braid from the right side of your head and wrap it into a circle shaped bun at back of your head. Bobby pin in place…

Then take the braid from the left hand  and wrap it around the bun you made from the other braid. Bobby pin that in place and adjust to you liking.. Here is the final look:

This is a really cute style that could be dressed up to be an almost formal hairstyle, or, I actually think if you had the bun secured with a hair tie and some extra bobby pins it could be a great sports hairstyle. What do you think? 😉

I hope you enjoyed this hairstyle, feel free to leave your hairstyle requests here. 😉

New Diy Wand Curls/Video Tutorial

One of my first posts on here was Basic wand curls . All I had was one picture, and then written instructions. I guess it’s probably not so hard to follow when you have really long hair like I did then. But I’ve found ever since I cut my hair back in July, (I got quite a few inches off, and some layers) that it was much harder for me to curl my hair and get a good result. For a while when I had long hair I would just use my basic 19mm wand (because I could do big sections and it curled tightly, so it was much quicker).

Suffice it to say, the first time I attempted to curl my hair with that wand after I cut my hair, was a complete disaster. (I ended up creating the 3 minute fancy updo out of that mess actually 😀 )

Anyway, back on track. 😛 I realised I needed to go back to using my other wand (babyliss pro conical curling wand 32mm-19mm) (which I used in my original wand curl post), and let me tell you, the results improved immediately after that.

I’ve read in many different places that this type of wand in particular works really well for short-medium length hair (it works well for long hair too of course 😉 ) so hopefully this tutorial will appeal to those of you with short hair! 😉

So, here is the way I’m currently curling my medium length hair….

 

Items needed: curling wand, curling mouse (though it is optional) and hairspray (if desired.)

Skill level: easy-medium

Time: 15-20 minutes (it really depends on the length of your hair)

 

Step-by-step:

  1.  Begin by sectioning off the top half of your hair..
  2.  Once your wand has heated up to the correct temperature, grab a medium-small section (though not too thin, or they won’t work properly) and start to wrap the hair around the wand, try not to twist too tightly, but at the same time make sure the hair has a slight twist to it on the wand…
  3. Hold hair on the wand for around 15 seconds or so, then gently let the hair fall of the wand into your hand, let the curl cool in you hand for a couple of seconds and the release…
  4.  Basically repeat steps 2-3 all over you head. If you have short hair I would recommend gently tugging on the curl after you release it to make sure they don’t become too tight…

    First layer done
  5. Once you have your whole head curled, very carefully and gently run your fingers through your curls and then add hairspray if desired. Or I actually put a small amount of curling mouse in my palm, rubbed my hands together, and then used that to smooth some of the frizz ect.

    Before I did anything to my hair…
  6. And then your done!

Dutch-Braided Updo/Short Hairdo!!

By Emily

Hey hey hey, everyone! Wow, I feel as though I haven’t posted anything in….forever, haha! I’ve been gone for a while on vacation, and I have to be honest, I never quite found the time to post any new hairstyles I came across. So, I sincerely apologize for taking such a long time. 😉 Anywho! The other day, my sister wanted something done to her hair. And, she actually has quite short hair.

So, what she wanted done to her hair we actually found another tutorial version on Pinterest. So, yes, this wasn’t entirely my idea. 😉 However, I did fix it up to my own liking, so it is not exact to the said person’s tutorial. I can’t seem to find where that tutorial is, so sorry that you won’t be seeing the other girl’s version. :/ Alrighty then! Let’s get started!

~Oh, and I think it only fair to apologize right now for the somewhat poor quality of the photos. I have to be honest, neither myself nor my model were ready to go out into the below 30 weather (about -1 celsius) outside.;)

Items needed: Brush, hairspray, 3 rubber hair ties, and a handful of bobby pins.

Skill level: Easy

Time: around 10 minutes..

Step-by-step:

  1. Brush hair.
  2. Create the part down the middle of your head.
  3. Begin dutch-braiding one side of the head, to the back of the head. Secure with an elastic. Then do the same for the other side. There should be leftover hair, so don’t worry about that. 😉 This is roughly what you’re hair should look like now:
    Word of advice: if you are doing this hairdo with short hair, I recommend hair spraying after each step. To ensure that the hairstyle will stay/hold longer. 😉
  4. Now, you’re going to pancake the braids. In other words, you’re going to pull the braids a bit–gently & carefully!!!–to make the braids look both thicker & messier.
  5. With the leftover hair, you’re going to pull the hair into a bun. Just the simple kind, don’t worry. Begin pulling it into a ponytail, stop halfway through the last pull. Your hair should look like this:
  6. Pull the braid through the opening of the small bun. Then do so with the other braid (coming through the other side).
  7. Now is the fun part. You get to bobby pin all the hair into a cute little bun. 😉 And that’s it! By now your hair should be a cute little fancy updo looking like this:

    If you’re wanting a fancier approach, I highly recommend adding some sort of hairpin in there. 😉

And there you have it! Well, thank you everyone for reading! Please let me know what y’all thought! And how this style turned out for you! Remember, this hairstyle can be done with any length of hair! 😉

Happy hairstyling, y’all!

~Emily
