Diy Tieback Braid

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the Easter season!

Today I have this super pretty braid to show you! I came up with it on Easter to do on one of my sisters for the vigil. Everyone loved it, and I thought it turned out really well, so I knew I had to do a tutorial for it!  I did it again on my cousin when she came over to my house last week, and decided to take some pics for fun, but they turned out so well I decided not to take new ones with the braid on myself. The video is done on me though. 😉

The name of the braid literally comes from how you create it, its just a series of tie-backs  flipped under themselves.  Then you pull the edges a bit to create some dimension to the braid, and repeat!

Another thing I love about this braid is the fact that you can do it on almost any hair type! So straight hair, curly hair, wavy hair, messy hair, clean hair, dirty hair, long hair, and you can even turn it into a half up for short hair! How awesome is that?

One other thing that is great about this hairstyle, is that anyone can do it! It doesn’t require any braiding whatsoever, just tying sections of hair together!

Plus it’s a super secure braid because of all the hair ties, so if you have super thick hair (like my cousin ;)) it works great, and if you have really thin hair it should work really well too!

Items needed: a handful of rubber hair ties (preferably to match your hair colour), and a bobby pin or two.

Time: 5-10 minutes

Skill level: Easy

I hope you all liked this hairstyle as much as I do! I honestly think it’s one of those hairstyles that could be perfect for most occasions, for a casual look leave as is, or make it a bit more messy looking, or to really dress it up you could curl the hair before braiding and then add some small flowers and hair jewels to the braid, it looks soo good! 😉

Dutch Braided Side Messy Bun {For SHORT hair!}

Hello Everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to do one of my favorite hairstyles. This one is great if your hair can be a little unruly and wild, like mine, and you just need a quick and simple hairstyle to make it look nice and put together.

This works great on short hair, however like always, it also works on long hair too. (:

Let’s get started!

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

Items needed: 2 small hair elastics, 1 hair tie, 5-6 bobby pins as needed // Difficulty: easy-medium // time needed: 5-7 minutes.

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

1.) Start with your hair parted in a side part. (A middle part works too, so just part your hair where you like it.)

2.) Started on the side where your side bun will be, begin to dutch braid straight back. One you start to reach the end of the crown of your head, finish the braid without adding in any more strands and secure with an elastic. (I like to leave some hair strands down in the front to frame my face)

3.) Now do a dutch braid in the same way on the other side, except instead of going straight back try to curve it slightly around your head. Once you reach the end of the crown of your head, continue braiding down without adding any more strands and secure with your second elastic. Then go back and pancake both braids.

4.) Now gather all your hair to one side for your side messy bun. I did mine on my left side. Now do a messy bun. I feel like everyone does their messy bun differently, but this is the way I do mine. I start to wrap it around like I’m doing a ponytail, but twist your elastic when your hair is about halfway through, then wrap it over. So it almost looks like a pull through ponytail. I hope that makes sense, and here’s some pictures of the steps, which should help a bit.

5.) Now grab random strands from your pull-through messy bun and bobby pin them down so you’re messy bun looks more messy and full.

And that’s it!
