Double french braided ponytail/sport hairstyles

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

Now you might be wondering who it is in the pictures,  well 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  so easy I would definitely classify it as a DIY even though I did 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 reasonably 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 tutorial, 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?

The 3 braid combo

I’m sorry I didn’t post a hairstyle for the last post of the 6 in 6 days, I was busy that day, and didn’t even realize until the next day that I hadn’t! 😉

I saw a picture for this a while ago, but had never tried it before. I think it’s a really pretty, and unique braid. With a little practice this could easily become an awesome diy hairstyle!

Items needed: a 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 again that you can make any hairstyle request and we’ll try to do a tutorial for you if possible.
