3 Super Simple Fancy Hairdos

Hey hey hey everybody! Someone recently requested fancy hairdos (for shorter hair) for dinners and stuff, and I was honestly very excited to see that request, because I have a few favorites for elegant dinners/events! Today, I’m going to share 3 of my all-time favorites: the simple pull-back, the super gorgeous side-sweep, & the simple, elegant braided bun! Alrighty, let’s get to it! (Once again, I apologize ahead of time for the poor quality of the photos.)

“The Pull-Back”

Step 1.) Brush hair.

Step 2.) Grab a section of hair from the front of your face and pull to the back of your head.

Step 3.) Either bobby-pin, or use an elastic to tie it off.

Step 4.) Literally the key to making any hairdo elegant and fancy: add an accessory! I love using cute hair pins when it comes to formal occasions!

Step 5.) Hairspray.

And that’s it! Super simple, and I think it comes out looking nice and elegant! And It’s a great style for after straightening your hair, or curling it!

 

 

“The Side-Sweep”

Step 1.) Brush and Hairspray hair.

Step 2.) Part your hair into a side-part.

Step 3.) With the side with less hair, bring it to the other side & pull that hair into a side-ponytail behind the visible hair:

Step 4.) Optional: take a small section of hair and pin it behind with the ponytail.

Step 5.) Hairspray.

{Also, if you curl your hair with this style, it can actually look very similar to Jenny Lind’s hair in “The Greatest Showman.”(her side-bun)..} 😉

 

 

“Braided Bun for Short Hair”

Step 1.) Brush and hairspray hair.

Step 2.) Create a simple three-strand braid to all of the hair:

Step 3.) Pancake the braid.

Step 4.)Tuck the braid under, and pin in place(or you can tuck it over, if you prefer.)

Step 5.) Hairspray.

[any hair falling out, just pin to the back of the head–but a few strands of hair framing the face actually look quite nice hanging loose. 😉 ]

[also, this style is super cute with headbands!–any kind of headbands! 😉 ]

 

And that’s all there is to it! Hope these styles help you out! Happy hairstyling, y’all!

3 Twist Ponytail

Hello Everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to do this super cute and perfect-for-summer hairstyle! It’s called the 3 Twist Ponytail. I would like to thank my sister, Sophia, (who also posts on here) because she actually thought of this hairstyle for me. ❤ I really love this hairstyle because it gets the hair away from your face and up into a ponytail to keep you cool while looking cute all summer long. I hope you enjoy!

also my hair is finally long enough to get into a high ponytail (well with a couple bobby pins lol), yay!

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

Items needed: 6-8 bobby pins as needed, 2 hair elastics, 1 bandana // Difficulty: Easy // Time Needed: 5-8 minutes

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

1.) Section off your hair by tracing two lines from your temples up. Secure with an elastic. IMG_9961

2.) Secure the bottom part of your with an elastic as well to keep it out of the way. Now section the top half into thirds and tie off two of the three sections to keep them out of the way. (the sections don’t have to be very precise 😉 )

3.) Starting from the front of your head, twist the first section tightly. I twisted it away from my ear. Once you reach the back of the crown of your head pin securely with two bobby pins.

4.) Repeat with the other two sections. I twisted the outer sections away from my ears and then I twisted the middle section in either direction.

5.) release the bottom part of your hair and gather all of your hair into a high ponytail. Secure with an elastic.

6.) Tightly roll up your bandana and wrap it around your ponytail. I cross it over once and under once before tying it at the top in a double knot. If this seems complicated, the picture will show how easy it is (;
