DIY Quick Pull-Back

By Emily

So, today, I have a super quick, super simple hairdo that I think y’all might enjoy.  So, this is one of the few hairdos that I like to do on just about any day.

You know those moments when you’re just getting ready to go out, and your hair “looks like a mess?”  If you do, then you’ll understand why I love this easy hairdo.  And if you don’t, well, you’re very lucky.  😉

Anyway, I have trouble with getting my hair to look pretty just about any day.  And, because it’s fairly short, most hairdos are kind of difficult.   So, I came to use this one which I just call  my “Quick Pull-Back Hairdo”.  And, here’s how to do it:

1. To start off: split a small section of hair from the front.

2.  Then, next, split that section into three parts.  Like so:

3. Next, begin to dutch-braid the hair.  (for those of you who don’t know how to dutch-braid, click here)  Do this only twice per section!  You are not going to be braiding all the hair!

4. When you get to the last braid: stop.  Your hair should look something like this by now:

5.  Without collecting anymore hair, begin to braid hair which you have in your hands.  Remember to braid whichever way you were doing. (in other words, if you were going over, braid over each strand; if you were going under, go under each strand.)  Like so:

6.  Tie it off with a hairband!   Optional: Then, afterwards, if you like messy hairdos (like I do), lightly tug on the braid–but, don’t pull it out!  

Overall, your hair should look something like this:

And there you have it!  My Quick Pull-Back DIY Hairdo!  Hope you all enjoy this hairstyle as much as I do!  Have a great rest of the day!

The 3 braid combo

I’m really sorry I didn’t post a hairstyle for the last post of the 6 in 6 days, I was really busy that day, and didn’t even realize until the next day that I hadn’t! Hopefully this makes up for it! 😉 From now on there will be a regular post each week (usually on a Monday.) Remember to subscribe for email notifications on new posts! Now lets get onto the hairstyle!

I saw a picture for this a while ago, but had never tried it before. I think it’s a really pretty, and unique hairstyle, and while it may be a difficult one to try on yourself, it’s great to do on other people! If you would like a diy tutorial on this hairstyle, please leave a comment below!

 

Items needed: Rat tail comb, brush, 2 small rubber elastics, 4-5 bobby pins.

  1.  Begin by parting the hair down the middle..
  2. then section off a crescent shaped bit of hair from the top of the part to above the ear, on either side of the head…
  3. tie back the remaining hair for the moment..
  4. Next lace braid from the part line on either side of the head until you run out of hair, finish off in a plait.
  5. Un-tie the remaining hair and french braid until you reach just above the nape of the neck…
  6. Finish off in a fishtail braid..
  7. Now go back and grab your two lace braids, tying them together with an elastic around where the rosette is in the picture…
  8. then pancake the braids a little to make them look fuller…
  9. and form a bun shaped rosette, pin it to hold it in place, and you’re done!

I’ll remind everyone once more, that this is going to be a request run site, so basically you make the request and we’ll try to do the hairstyle for you!

Got a question? Ask away!

 

How To Create a Braided Updo

So this is a hairstyle I made up a while back, I hope you like this braided updo!

Items you will need: hair brush, 2-3 hair elastics, 1 hair tie and a handful of bobby pins.

  1. To start of with you will need to part your hair off to one side….
  2. Separate a small section of hair from the front and french braid it until you get to just in front of your ear…
  3. Finish it off with a plait, and secure with an elastic…
  4. Then go back and gently tug on the outside edges of the braid to make it look bigger and softer..
  5. Keep the braid out of the way while you gather all of the rest of your hair in to a messy bun..
  6. Once you have the bun where you want it, secure it with bobby pins…
  7. And the wrap the braid around the bun and secure into place with a few more bobby pins.
  8. Add hairspray if desired.
