Double Dutch Braided Updo

I know we have a lot of dutch braids as the base for quite a few hairstyles on here, but its such a versatile braid they are soo many different things you can do with them. Plus, they’re fairly easy to do, which is always a plus 😉 I came up with this particular style when my little sister wanted me to do something special in her hair for her birthday several months ago. It really suited her, and I thought it would make a good tutorial, so today I’m going to show you how to create this easy, double dutch braided updo!

1.Begin by making a middle part all the way from the front of your head to the nape of the neck (you could also do a side part as long as you divide the hair evenly at the back.)

2. Then section one half out of the way for now…

I had my sisters hair slightly damp so I could get all of the tangles out more easily, but it works fine on dry hair!

Now take a section from the front of the section and divide it into three pieces:

And dutch braid all the way down so that the braid goes in a direction as I have done in the picture:


Repeat on the other side of the head…

After you have pancaked both of the braids your hair should look roughly like this:

Now take the braid from the right side of your head and wrap it into a circle shaped bun at back of your head. Bobby pin in place…

Then take the braid from the left hand  and wrap it around the bun you made from the other braid. Bobby pin that in place and adjust to you liking.. Here is the final look:

This is a really cute style that could be dressed up to be an almost formal hairstyle, or, I actually think if you had the bun secured with a hair tie and some extra bobby pins it could be a great sports hairstyle. What do you think? 😉

I hope you enjoyed this hairstyle, feel free to leave your hairstyle requests here. 😉

Dutch-Braided Updo/Short Hairdo!!

By Emily

Hey hey hey, everyone! Wow, I feel as though I haven’t posted anything in….forever, haha! I’ve been gone for a while on vacation, and I have to be honest, I never quite found the time to post any new hairstyles I came across. So, I sincerely apologize for taking such a long time. 😉 Anywho! The other day, my sister wanted something done to her hair. And, she actually has quite short hair.

So, what she wanted done to her hair we actually found another tutorial version on Pinterest. So, yes, this wasn’t entirely my idea. 😉 However, I did fix it up to my own liking, so it is not exact to the said person’s tutorial. I can’t seem to find where that tutorial is, so sorry that you won’t be seeing the other girl’s version. :/ Alrighty then! Let’s get started!

~Oh, and I think it only fair to apologize right now for the somewhat poor quality of the photos. I have to be honest, neither myself nor my model were ready to go out into the below 30 weather (about -1 celsius) outside.;)

Items needed: Brush, hairspray, 3 rubber hair ties, and a handful of bobby pins.

Skill level: Easy

Time: around 10 minutes..

Step-by-step:

  1. Brush hair.
  2. Create the part down the middle of your head.
  3. Begin dutch-braiding one side of the head, to the back of the head. Secure with an elastic. Then do the same for the other side. There should be leftover hair, so don’t worry about that. 😉 This is roughly what you’re hair should look like now:
    Word of advice: if you are doing this hairdo with short hair, I recommend hair spraying after each step. To ensure that the hairstyle will stay/hold longer. 😉
  4. Now, you’re going to pancake the braids. In other words, you’re going to pull the braids a bit–gently & carefully!!!–to make the braids look both thicker & messier.
  5. With the leftover hair, you’re going to pull the hair into a bun. Just the simple kind, don’t worry. Begin pulling it into a ponytail, stop halfway through the last pull. Your hair should look like this:
  6. Pull the braid through the opening of the small bun. Then do so with the other braid (coming through the other side).
  7. Now is the fun part. You get to bobby pin all the hair into a cute little bun. 😉 And that’s it! By now your hair should be a cute little fancy updo looking like this:

    If you’re wanting a fancier approach, I highly recommend adding some sort of hairpin in there. 😉

And there you have it! Well, thank you everyone for reading! Please let me know what y’all thought! And how this style turned out for you! Remember, this hairstyle can be done with any length of hair! 😉

Happy hairstyling, y’all!

Dutch Braided Headband (SHORT HAIR holiday party hairstyle)

Hello hello everyone! Sabrina here. Since Christmas is coming so fast, I thought it would be fun to show you a DIY holiday hairstyle! This hairstyle works great with short hair, and also looks fabulous on long hair as well. Let’s get started!

Items needed: 2 tiny hair elastics, 5-6 bobby pins (as needed) ~~ time needed: 5-8 mins Difficulty: easy

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

1.) Start by parting your hair into a side part. You can even do a middle part if you would like to, I just prefer a side part for this style.

2.) Then grab a section of hair a few inches behind your hairline. Do a dutch braid. You can see how to do a dutch braid by going to this postIMG_8134

3.) Pancake the dutch braid, so that it looks fuller. Then repeat step 2-3 on the other side.

4.) Pick up a section of hair and bobby pin your braid underneath it. (the hair you picked up will cover the end of the braid and bobby pins.) Repeat this step on the other side.

And there you have it! I love this hairstyle because it is easy and fast. It’s also perfect for a holiday party or just as a regular day hairstyle!

See ya!

5 Minute Formal Updo

Hey everyone! Clare here today. I know quite a few of you are probably anticipating the 4 strand braid tutorial you all voted for, I’m hoping to have it up soon, possibly in my next tutorial, so keep an eye out for that! Now onto today’s hairstyle…

I actually just came up with this style the other day, and was surprised at how quick it is to do! I got it down in about 5 minutes, which is pretty good considering the formal look it has! For a fancier look you could definitely add some curls before styling, but it honestly will look great either way!

As always with new styles you’re trying out, especially fancy ones, make sure to give it a few trial runs before the actual day you want to wear it. Trying out a brand new hairstyle 10 minutes before you head out the door is not exactly the best idea… 😉

Items needed: 1-2 hair ties, a handful of bobby pins, (hairspray & spin-pins are optional)

Time:4-8 minutes (depending on your hair)

Skill level: Easy

Step-by-step instructions:

  1.  Begin with your hair down and parted to one side (you could do a middle part too, but I think side part’s look better for this style).
  2. Now section off a a bit of hair from the top of the part, to just behind the ear on either side..
  3. Put those out of the way for a second, and gather the remaining hair into a ponytail at the back of your head..
  4. Next, twist the hair in the ponytail up into a bun, use bobby pins to secure..
  5. Now take the hair from the right side of the head and slowly begin to twist the hair, starting at roots, (hopefully the video explains this better)…
  6. Once you have the twist done, lay it over the top of the bun and wrap the ends around to pin in place..
  7. Repeat steps 5-6 on the other side…
  8. Once you have the twists secured in place, go back and pin any of the bun to you liking, and gently pull on the crown to add more volume and lift..
  9. Add hairspray if desired..

And there you have this super simple, but elegant updo!

Let me know what you think in the comments (and I apologise for the lighting in the video.) I hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Twisted Half-up Hairstyle *Bonus Post*

Hello everyone!

Today, I’m going to be showing you a very simple, yet elegant, hairstyle. This is great for formal occasions, holiday parties, or for everyday! It’s very versatile, and you can really dress it up, or play casual. 😉

items needed: 2 bands, 2 bobby pins

difficulty: easy

time needed: 10 minutes

Step 1: Begin with a side part, and, from the heavy side of the part, pick up a 1 inch section of hair. Split into 2 sections.

Step 2: We are about to begin a lace twist. To do a lace twist, start with the 2 strands, and twist them together, away from your face, once. Then, add some hair to the strand closest to your face, and twist again. Continue doing this all the way down to your ear. Once you reach your ear, continue with a rope braid. You can reference a previous post of mine, if you want to see how to do a rope twist: Secure with an elastic.

Step 3: On the other side of your head, grab a large section of hair, and do a rope twist.

Step 4: Tie the two rope twists with an elastic. I like to tie mine near the nape of my neck for a looser, more elegant look. Remove the elastic from the first braid.

Step 5: Pancake the twists, to make them look really full.

Step 6: Grab a small inch section from underneath the band. Split into two sections, an do one more rope twist. Then, wrap it around the elastic, and secure the braid with two bobby-pins.

…And there you have it! A very quick, yet beautiful hairstyle. I love this one a lot, especially since you don’t need a lot of materials or time to do it. If you want it to look extra fancy, you can add some curls to really get some movement through the hair.

 

I hope you guys like this hairstyle! Let me know what you think of it. Have a great weekend!
