3 Super Simple Fancy Hairdos

Hey hey hey everybody! Someone recently requested fancy hairdos (for shorter hair) for dinners and stuff, and I was honestly very excited to see that request, because I have a few favorites for elegant dinners/events! Today, I’m going to share 3 of my all-time favorites: the simple pull-back, the super gorgeous side-sweep, & the simple, elegant braided bun! Alrighty, let’s get to it! (Once again, I apologize ahead of time for the poor quality of the photos.)

“The Pull-Back”

Step 1.) Brush hair.

Step 2.) Grab a section of hair from the front of your face and pull to the back of your head.

Step 3.) Either bobby-pin, or use an elastic to tie it off.

Step 4.) Literally the key to making any hairdo elegant and fancy: add an accessory! I love using cute hair pins when it comes to formal occasions!

Step 5.) Hairspray.

And that’s it! Super simple, and I think it comes out looking nice and elegant! And It’s a great style for after straightening your hair, or curling it!

 

 

“The Side-Sweep”

Step 1.) Brush and Hairspray hair.

Step 2.) Part your hair into a side-part.

Step 3.) With the side with less hair, bring it to the other side & pull that hair into a side-ponytail behind the visible hair:

Step 4.) Optional: take a small section of hair and pin it behind with the ponytail.

Step 5.) Hairspray.

{Also, if you curl your hair with this style, it can actually look very similar to Jenny Lind’s hair in “The Greatest Showman.”(her side-bun)..} 😉

 

 

“Braided Bun for Short Hair”

Step 1.) Brush and hairspray hair.

Step 2.) Create a simple three-strand braid to all of the hair:

Step 3.) Pancake the braid.

Step 4.)Tuck the braid under, and pin in place(or you can tuck it over, if you prefer.)

Step 5.) Hairspray.

[any hair falling out, just pin to the back of the head–but a few strands of hair framing the face actually look quite nice hanging loose. 😉 ]

[also, this style is super cute with headbands!–any kind of headbands! 😉 ]

 

And that’s all there is to it! Hope these styles help you out! Happy hairstyling, y’all!

Pull-Through Faux Hawk

Hey hey hey everyone! Today I’ve got this super beautiful hairstyle—modeled, once again, by my beautiful sister! It’s a great hairstyle for both simple and fancy occasions, and for basically everyday, haha! I absolutely love the faux hawk look, and I found that the pull-through braid made a gorgeous version of that! Let’s get to it!

Difficulty level: medium

Time: 10-15 mins

Items needed: lots of elastics!—it really depends on how much hair you have. In all these pics, I had to use roughly 15 elastics, I believe—and her hair reaches about her mid-back.

Step 1) Brush hair  [you can hairspray it as well, if desired]

Step 2) now, gather a small section of hair from the top front of the head, and tie with an elastic to create a ponytail:

Step 3) now, gather a section of hair behind that ponytail and tie with an elastic to create that section of hair into a separate ponytail.

Step 4) Now you’re going to split that first ponytail in half:
503ACBB1-ADC6-41D3-97AF-34460AAC869D

Step 5) Grab the second ponytail and bring it through the two halves of the first ponytail:
BA3E906C-3D71-4C8E-8D0E-95051E1FD875

Step 6) Pin the ponytail that has been brought through away(towards the face).

Step 7) now, using the two halves of that first ponytail, add some /more/ hair from that section and pull it into a ponytail, using an elastic(remember that you are gathering together all of the hair into one big braid!—it’s a lot like French braiding) Now you can unpin that other ponytail.

Step 8) split the ponytail that you just unpinned in half and repeat steps 5-7

Finishing touch: secure with an elastic, pancake the braid, and hairspray(if desired)!
