Diy Tieback Braid

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the Easter season!

Today I have this super pretty braid to show you! I came up with it on Easter to do on one of my sisters for the vigil. Everyone loved it, and I thought it turned out really well, so I knew I had to do a tutorial for it!  I did it again on my cousin when she came over to my house last week, and decided to take some pics for fun, but they turned out so well I decided not to take new ones with the braid on myself. The video is done on me though. 😉

The name of the braid literally comes from how you create it, its just a series of tie-backs  flipped under themselves.  Then you pull the edges a bit to create some dimension to the braid, and repeat!

Another thing I love about this braid is the fact that you can do it on almost any hair type! So straight hair, curly hair, wavy hair, messy hair, clean hair, dirty hair, long hair, and you can even turn it into a half up for short hair! How awesome is that?

One other thing that is great about this hairstyle, is that anyone can do it! It doesn’t require any braiding whatsoever, just tying sections of hair together!

Plus it’s a super secure braid because of all the hair ties, so if you have super thick hair (like my cousin ;)) it works great, and if you have really thin hair it should work really well too!

Items needed: a handful of rubber hair ties (preferably to match your hair colour), and a bobby pin or two.

Time: 5-10 minutes

Skill level: Easy

I hope you all liked this hairstyle as much as I do! I honestly think it’s one of those hairstyles that could be perfect for most occasions, for a casual look leave as is, or make it a bit more messy looking, or to really dress it up you could curl the hair before braiding and then add some small flowers and hair jewels to the braid, it looks soo good! 😉

Fishtail Side Braid

*Bonus Post*

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! We have a special bonus post for  you today!

Hey hey hey, everyone! Today, I have a super easy, super cute hairstyle to show y’all! So, this is one of my favorites to do when my hair is just a plain old mess, and I want that somewhat boho style. It’s really easy, takes little timing, and comes out really cute! Let’s get to it!

Items needed: two bobby pins, one elastic, and hairspray if desired.

Time: roughly 5 minutes

Difficulty: medium

1. Alrighty, to start, grab a small section of hair, anywhere from about a half an inch to an inch away from the front of your face.

2.With this section, begin to French-fishtail (by adding in hair to a normal fishtail braid) the the section until you get to the back of your ear (if you’re dealing with short hair, you may want to do the braid with smaller sections.)

3. Now, with that hair, continue to fishtail-braid (but you’re not adding hair in anymore!)

 

4.When you get to the end of your braid, hold it somewhat tightly, so that you do not undo your work.

5.Then, begin pancaking the braid by tugging on the edges (little tip: if you’re looking for a messier appearance, pancake the braid a bit more.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.Secure the pancaked braid with an elastic. Then, pin the braid to your desired placing (I like to hide my bobby pins, so I make sure to pin my braid behind a section of hair.)

And that’s all there is to it! If you’re dealing with shorter hair like mine, I would suggest hairspraying it.

Another little tip: if you want an even messier, boho appearance, grab different sizes of sections of hair throughout the braiding—rather than the same all the way through. (; Anywho! That’s about it!

(If you want a more formal look or just perhaps a tad fancier, I recommend curling your hair.  This side braid looks really cute on curly hair! And also try to make the braid as even a possible.)

Thanks for reading! Happy hairstyling, y’all!
