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:

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)!

Zendaya Low-Ponytail

Hey everyone! 😀
Sophia here. Today, I’m going to show you all how to do a super simple, chic hairstyle. You probably guessed by the title, but it is inspired by this picture I saw of the absolutely gorgeous Zendaya.

DancinGirl requested that one of us do a hairstyle that would be suitable for dancing. I’m not a dancer, but I played soccer for all my life, and I know that this is a hairstyle that will look elegant and stay in place.

So, in the pic, Zendaya is wearing an on point, slick, low ponytail. It’s lovely, but I wanted to create something with a little bit of a “surprise” factor in it. In the front, it’ll still look like a perfect low ponytail, but once you turn around, there’s something extra about it.


This hairstyle can be done with curly or straight hair, but for the purpose of matching Zendaya’s look, I opted to straighten my hair, to keep with the sleekness.

Difficulty Level: easy

Time: 5-10 minutes

Items needed: 1 small elastic, 1 hairband, 2 bobby-pins, 1 spray bottle with water, comb, & boar bristle brush.

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Using a comb, make a deep side part, stopping right before the crown of your head. Brush the hair at the crown of your head back.
2. Sectioning off the hair at the crown of your head, tie it with the small elastic. (So now you should have a small ponytail.) Then, make a hole in the ponytail, and flip the hair through it.
(See video for more instruction.)
3. Mist your entire hair with water. Using the boar-bristle brush, smooth down the hair on either side of the side part. Boar bristle brushes are great because they are so dense, and are perfect for smoothing hair.
4. Gather all of your hair into a low ponytail, and tie with the hairband.
5. Grab a 1 inch section of hair from the ponytail, and spray it with water. Wrap the strand
around the hairband, and pin with two bobby-pins.
6. Gently brush through the ponytail with the boar-bristle brush for extra smoothness. Spray with hairspray to avoid fly-aways.
7. (optional) Add in some twisty decorations on the thinner side of your side part. Twisty
decorations are wonderful since they are great at staying put for a long time.

 

…and that’s it! So easy, right? It’s perfect for so many occasions, be it a party, dance
competition, or soccer game!
