Hat Hair! (3 Easy DIY Baseball Cap Hairstyles)

Hey hey Everyone, it’s Sabrina!

I’m super excited to show you all how to do these 3 easy DIY baseball cap hairstyles! I love these hairstyles because they are simple, cute, and look great with your baseball cap! Let’s get started!


1st hairstyle: items needed: baseball cap, 1 hair band, 1 small hair elastic, 1-2 bobby pins.

1.) Gather your hair and tie it into a pony-tail low enough so that it can fit through the pony-tail holder in your hat. Put your hat on and pull your pony-tail through the pony-tail holder.

2.) Grab a section of hair from your pony-tail and do an inside-out braid. To do this, just do a regular braid, but instead of crossing the strands over, cross them under. Secure with your small hair-elastic. To learn how to do a regular 3 strand braid, you can reference Emma’s post.

 (please excuse the thread on my hat!)

3.) Next pancake your braid to make it look bigger and fuller. To do this, gently pull on the outer edges of your braid until you get your desired look. Then grab a small piece of hair and wrap it around your elastic band, and bobby pin into place. 

And there you have it! First hairstyle-check!


2nd Hairstyle: items needed: baseball cap, alligator clip (or regular clip), 2 small hair elastics.

1.) Part your hair into a middle part and clip one side with your alligator clip to keep it out of the way.

2.) Grab a piece from the front of the un-clipped side and begin to do a dutch-braid straight back. You can leave some pieces of hair down in the front of your face for face framing if you would like. End the dutch braid at the crown of your head, and then continue braiding down and secure with an elastic. To learn how to do a dutch braid, you can reference our video in the dutch flip through hairstyle.

3.) Repeat on the other side and then pancake the braids (gently pull on the outer edges of the braid to make it look fuller.)

4.) Finally, put on your hat!

2nd hat hairstyle-done!


Now for the third and final baseball cap hairstyle. This is one is my personal favorite. (:

Items needed: baseball cap, 1 alligator clip (or regular clip), 1 hair band, 4 small hair elastics, 2-4 bobby pins.

1.) Repeat step one from the 2nd hat hairstyle but instead of using an alligator clip, secure that side with your hair band to keep it out of the way.

2.) Grab a small section of hair from the side that is not tied, and do a regular 3 strand braid. You can reference Emma’s post on how to do one if you would like.

3.) Flip your micro-braid over to the other side and clip it to keep it out of the way.

4.) Now, grab the rest of the hair on that side and do a fishtail braid all the way down and secure with an elastic. Pancake the braid if you would like it to look fuller/looser. You can reference Clare’s post on how to do a fishtail braid.

4.) Now unclip your micro braid and stack it on top or your fishtail and tie with an elastic. (You can now take off the other elastic so that there is only one left) To help the braid stay stacked on your fishtail, you can add one or two bobby pins as needed.

    

4.) Repeat steps 2-4 on the other side.

5.) And finally, put on your baseball cap!


Bam! There you have it, 3 easy diy baseball cap hairstyles. If baseball caps aren’t your style, then these hairstyles also look amazing without one.

Well, I hope you enjoyed these hairstyles–please leave a comment and let me know if you have any questions! Which hairstyle was your favorite?

Double french braided ponytail/sport hairstyles

Hey everyone, happy Wednesday (yes that’s right, we’ve moved all future posts now to every Wednesday or Tuesday, instead of on Mondays.)

Now you might be thinking to yourself, “That’s not Clare’s hair is it?” and if you say that then you’d be right. Today one of my awesome cousins is modelling this style in her gorgeous hair.

I think this is a great sports hairstyle to keep the hair out of your face, but it could also just as easily be dressed up or down, however you like it really!

And this is definitely so easy I would classify it as a DIY even though I happened to have done it on my cousin.

Items needed: comb, 1-2 bobby pins, 1 hair tie.

Time: 5-10 minutes

Step-by-step instructions:

  1.  Begin by parting the hair all the way down the middle..
  2. Section off one side for now…
  3. French braid on side, using reasonable large sections, however start with slightly smaller pieces and grab larger sections as you go along…
  4. Once you run out of hair, braid all the way down and tie the ends with a hair tie..
  5. Repeat steps 3-4…
  6. When you have both braids finished, secure the braids together at the base of the neck…
  7. Now undo the braids in the ponytail..
  8. And if you want to, grab a small piece of hair from the under side of the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie, secure with a bobby pin or two..
  9. This step is optional, but I like how it makes the french braid look different from a normal one.. Go back up the braid and gently tug the inside pieces of the braid to make them look fuller, and it also gives it an almost dutch braid look to it.
  10. And you’re done!!

I hope you liked this post, I know quite a few people asked for some sport hairstyles a little while back. So hopefully you enjoyed this tutorial! Is this sport hairstyle something you would wear to training or a game?

DIY Overnight Curls/Waves

Hey everybody!

Sophia here. Today, I’m going to be showing you all a really simple, do-it-yourself way to get curls/waves! This summer, I went to Hawaii, and you can bet that with all that salt water, I was enjoying some waves at the beach and in my hair the whole vacation. Now that I’m back in California though, and summer’s coming to a close, this DIY way of getting those beach-y waves will be what I use.

Tip: If you want to have some dramatic curls, leave the braids in for the day and the night—the braids make a cute hairstyle!

Now, let’s get those waves!

Tools needed: 2 small elastics, hair mousse (optional)

Skill level: easy

1. Part your hair wherever you like. I like to part mine off to the side.

2. This is optional, but I recommend putting some hair mousse in your hair. It really helps the curls/waves last longer.

3. From the crown of your head to the nape of your neck, part hair straight in the middle. Tie one section off to the side, so it won’t be in your way.

4. On the other side, pick up a 1 inch piece of hair, and split in two. You will be making a lace-rope braid.

5. To make a lace-rope braid, you will start by twisting the piece of hair closest to your head forwards, before crossing it backwards over the other strand. Then, you will add some hair to the new strand, before twisting it forwards and crossing it backwards. In essence, the twisting will create a rope. Although this braid seems a tad tricky, it’s actually quite simple once you see it done!

6. Complete the lace-rope braid. Once you run out of hair to add in, just continue twisting the strands and crossing them over. Secure with a small elastic.

7. Repeat steps 4-6 on the other side of your head.

8. And there you have it! Two very cute lace-rope braids. (If you’re wondering why its called ‘lace’, its because you are only gathering from one side of the braid, whereas ‘French’ braids, you gather from both sides.)

9. Leave these braids in overnight. The longer you keep them in, the tighter the curls/waves will be. It differs for every type of hair.

10. In the morning, take out the elastics and uncoil the braids!

11. Style to your liking.

I hope you enjoy this super easy, DIY way to get lovely, effortless curls/waves. This is my favorite way to get some lovely movement in my hair. Its also great since the rope braids can be worn throughout the entire day, so you get a hairstyle and a curls!

See ya later!

Dutch braided updo/Running Late Hairdo

By Emily

Hello y’all!  Emily here!  Today, I’ve got this super easy, perhaps a tad time-consuming, but totally worth it, hairstyle.  ;)  I like ranking this hairdo on my list of “running late hairdos.”  Because, this hairstyle is really so simple, it’s the perfect hairdo for when you’re running late, and in a hurry to make your hair look gorgeous.  ;)  (Please excuse the terrible photo-taking quality, and the possible messes around the floor.)  Let’s go!

Time: 5-10 minutes

Skill level: medium

Step-by-step:

So, first thing’s first: brush your hair.  (And a little tip: putting a small amount of mousse in really helps the hairdo to hold up)  Alrighty!  After you’ve done this, we’re on to the first real step.  ;)

1.  Taking a small portion of hair on the left side, begin to french braid the section to the back of the head.  When you come near to the middle of the head, stop and braid the rest of the hair(no longer french-braiding!):

Be sure to secure the braid with a small hairband (clear bands are the best, in my opinion… a little less noticeable.  ;) )

2. Go through the braid and loosen it slightly, giving the braid a bit of a “messy look.”  Make sure that you don’t pull the braid apart!  Do this all the way down the braid, to the very bottom:

 

3.  on the other side of the head (opposite of the one with the braid), gather a small section of hair:

With this portion of hair, you’re going to tease it.  You don’t have to, however, it does look better/more voluminous if you do.  So, tease the hair, then pull it back to join the braid at the back of the head:

You may want to make certain that any possibly open spots are covered by the hair:

4.  You’re going to take this hair and very carefully pull it through a section of the braid.  Like so:

You’re going to pull this all the way through:

And, afterwards, you’re going to lightly/carefully work that section of hair down along with the braid, hiding it from eyesight.  Working the hair down to it’s end, as a part of the braid:

(This may seem a little more work than just pinning the hair to stay there…but, it honestly looks better.  And, best part is, doing it this way: you’re free of bobby pins!)

5.  Is also optional.  You’re just going to curl all the leftover hair.  You don’t have to do this, I honestly only did it because my little sister has slightly thin hair, and curling it helped to make it seem as though her hair was thicker.  ;)  Now, you can leave your hair like this.  Still looks super gorgeous!  OR, you can move on with me to the next step…

6.  Is simply pulling all the hair into a ponytail.  Should look something like this:

(as I said: sorry that my pics aren’t the best quality… taking pics while doing hair is slightly less than simple, haha. ;) )  Now this is another option.  You can leave it as it is now, or you can go on to the last step.  Your choice!

7. all that you’re gonna do is gather all the hair into a messy form of a bun, and either bobby pin it in place, or, use a hairband to secure it.  Should look like this:

Overall look:

And that’s all there is to it!  Super easy!  And, not too time-consuming, right?  ;)  All in all, whichever option you decide to go with, I personally find it gorgeous!  Happy hairstyling, y’all!

3 Minute Fancy Updo!

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been a little behind in my posting, I’ve been away for the last 2 weeks, the posts should be back on schedule now!

For now I’d like to show you how to create the twisted updo that won the most votes in the recent poll, if you enjoyed getting to pick a tutorial like that, let me know down below!

I’m also sorry that an email got sent out on here today for a post (Feast of the Queenship of Mary craft day) that was meant to be on my family’s website https://catholichomeschoolaustralia.com . I’d forgotten to log out of my WordPress account, and some one else got on to re-blog something over there, but instead it ended up over here. I hope that clears that up 😉 …

 

Now onto the post, I really loved making this one up, it works great with curls for the base of the style. And can be created in just 3 minutes! Oh and since I’ve recently had my hair cut I would definitely say this could be a short hairstyle, well to be honest, as long as you can twist you hair into a bun, it can be suitable for any length! Let me know what you think of it!

I also think this is a great one to dress up or down, for a party, Mass, or just a day when you something a little more special in your hair. 😉

Items needed:

Time: just 3 minutes!

Skill level: Easy

Step-by-step instructions:

  1.  Begin by having your hair down. (for the fancy version in the last picture, curl your hair before beginning.)
  2.  Now section of the left hand section for now…
  3. Start twisting the hair on the right hand side till you get to the back of your neck. (see picture) Secure with and elastic.
  4. Then repeat the same on the other side…..
  5.  Once you have both sections done, secure them together at the nape of the next, more to the right side….
  6. Then twist the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
  7. Adjust the hairstyle to your liking, gently pulling on the hair around the crown will create more fullness and volume.

Lace Milkmaid Braid

Hey everyone!

So, this week’s hairstyle is inspired by a braid I had learned and often “tested out” on my little sisters years ago.  The Lace Braid that I utilize here is quite simple to style.  A Lace Braid is essentially a French Braid, the only difference being that new hair is added in to just one side.  See here for a step-by-step walkthrough.

Basically, I parted her hair on the left side and began the braid right at the heavy side of the part.  I added in hair only to the right side (closest to her face) and continued to angle the braid all the way around.

IMGP1330The only tricky part is when you reach the back of her head, at the nape of her neck.  Make sure to hold your strands firmly and to add in the new strands pretty tightly so that the resulting braid is not baggy.

When I reached the end of her hair, I braided it off, secured it with an elastic, folded it over, and bobby pinned the tail nicely above her left ear.  If her hair is long enough, definitely wrap the end of the braid over the part line, securing it so that it blends with the beginning of the braid.  This technique produces the very best “milkmaid braid” effect.

Lastly, I loosened up the top edges of the braid to make them stand out, and pinned a couple of them to her head for added security.

And that’s it! I love the gorgeous “flower girl” look of milkmaid braids; perfect for summer sunshine!

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!
