3 Unique Half Up Hairstyles

Supplies:

  • Rat tail comb
  • Elastic bands
  • Bobby pins
  • Hairspray
  • Curling iron

Hairstyle #1:

For the first hairstyle, I’m going to start by dividing off the top section of hair, keeping some hair down on the sides to cover my ears and I’m just going to tie this off using an elastic band.

Now I’m going to take this hair that
I’ve divided off and I’m going to split it into two equal sections.

I’m going to take one of the sections
and I’m going to begin wrapping it around the hair elastic. As you’re
doing this you’ll want to make sure to wrap the hair kind of tight so
it’s easier to pin. You can always go back after and make it a little
bigger if you’d like.

So once I’ve got it wrapped twice
around the elastic I’m going to start pinning the twist against my
head.

Go ahead and play around with the shape
of it so each twisted piece is about the same size and you’ll just
want to continue pinning it against the head until it feels nice and
tight and won’t come loose.

I love the way this style looks because
it seems like it’d be a lot more complicated to do than it actually
is and literally only takes a few seconds to do.

Hairstyle #2:

For the next style I’m going to start by sliding two bobby pins along the back of my head, horizontally creating a line. These are going to help anchor the hairstyle in place.

Then I’m going to divide off a section
of hair on both the left and right side of the head from along the
hairline above both ears.

I’m going to bring these to the back of
my head tie the two pieces into a knot so I’m going to place the left
side over the right. Then I’m going to tuck the left strand up and
around the right strand and then pull the two sections apart to
tighten the hair against my head. This is the first half of the knot.

Then so the hair doesn’t slip out, I’m
going to slide two bobby pins into the top part of the knot to help
hold it in place.

Now I’m going to repeat the same steps
again, crossing the left strand over the right, pushing the left
strand up and around the right strand to finish off the knot.

Then I’m just going to pin it in place
again and the best trick for knowing where you put your bobby pins is
to put them wherever your fingers are holding the hair and I made
sure to tuck them underneath the knot so they didn’t show.

Now I’m just going to go back over the
hair and pull on different pieces to make the knot look really big
and full.

It ended up looking kind of like a bow
but I think it’s so cute and really love how this one turned out.

Hairstyle #3:

For the last hairstyle, I’m going to start by sliding two bobby pins along the back of my head again, horizontally to help anchor the hairstyle.

Then I’m going to pick up a section on
the right side, from above my ears and I’m going to drape this hair
towards the back of my head and then slide some bobby pins into the
hair to help hold it in place. I’m doing this because I don’t want
the braid to be too droopy but I don’t want to use an elastic band
either.

So then I’m going to do the same with
the hair on the left side, draping it towards the back of my head and
pinning it with some bobby pins.

Now with my two sections of hair I’m
going to twist them towards the left and wrap them around each other
towards the right. This is important because twisting them one way
while wrapping them in the opposite direction is what will keep the
twist from just unraveling.

So then once the twist reaches the ends
of the hair I’m going to tie it off with a clear elastic band.

Now for the fun part, I”m going to
gently pull on small pieces of hair in the twist until it’s really
big and full.

You don’t want to pull on the entire
twist because that will just loosen it up so make sure to pull along
the edges so the hair slides a little out of the elastic.

I love how unique and different this
hairstyle turned out. Definitely not one you see everyday.

Thank you so much for watching!

Triple Braided Double Bun

Supplies:

  • Rattail comb
  • Bobby pin
  • Elastic bands
  • Hairspray

Instructions:

With my hair brushed straight back, I’m
going to pick up a section of hair at my hairline above my forehead
and divide it into three sections for the braid.

I’m going to cross the right strand
over the middle and then the left strand to begin a french braid.

Now I’m crossing the right over the
middle, picking up a new section and bringing it into the braid.

Then I’m crossing the left over the
middle, and bringing a new section into the braid.

Now I’m going to begin waterfalling
this top braid so I’m going to drop down the right strand, and pick
up a new section right behind it and cross it over the middle strand
in its place.

Then I’m dropping down the left
section, picking up a new piece from behind it and crossing it over
the middle strand in its place.

So once more, I’m dropping down the right strand, picking up a new piece and crossing it over the middle strand.

Then I’m dropping down the left strand
and bringing a new strand into the braid in its place.

And I’m going to repeat those steps,
continuing the double waterfall braid down the center of my head and
then continue it down the center of the back of my head.

It might feel a little confusing at
first but once you get the hang of dropping the strand and picking up
a new one you’ll be surprised at how easy this braid is to do.

The bigger the sections that you bring
into the braid, the larger your individual waterfall strands will be
so you can tailor the braid to your own preference either bringing in
smaller pieces or larger pieces. I did it both ways and prefer larger
or medium sized waterfall sections.

Then once the braid reaches the nape of
my neck, I’m going to split the braid so one piece is on the left
side and two pieces are on the right so it lays flat and then I’m
going to slide a bobby pin over the hair on the left since I’m going
to work with the hair on the right next.

So now I”m going to braid the hair
on the right side into a french braid bringing in the waterfall
strands so I’m picking up a piece near the hairline and dividing it
into three sections.

Again I’m crossing the side strands
over the middle strand for the first stitch and then I’m going to
start incorporating hair into the braid.

So on the top side of the braid, I’m
bringing in each waterfall piece one at a time and then on the bottom
side of the braid I’m just bringing in sections from along the
hairline.

Then once the braid reaches the nape of
my neck and I’ve brought in all of the hair on this side I’m going to
tie a clear elastic band over the end of the braid creating a little
loop so it’s easy to remove once I’m ready to do the little bun.

Now I’m just going to repeat the same
steps with the hair on the left side, braiding it into another french
braid, bringing each waterfall strand into the braid one at a time to
the top side of the braid and incorporating hair from along the
hairline on the bottom side of the braid.

Then once the braid reaches the nape of
my neck and I’ve brought in all of the hair on this side, I’m going
to grab a clear elastic band and wrap it around the base of the braid
but on the last wrap of the elastic I’m going to pull the hair part
way through to create a little loop.

Then I’m just going to take the rest of
the hair and create another little loop, tucking it around the
elastic and then looping it a third time and tucking it back into the
elastic band to form the bun.

Then I’m just going to do the same
thing with the hair on the right side, creating a little loop with
the hair and then doing two more loops with the ends until all of the
hair is wrapped into a bun.

You can make your buns as big or as little as you prefer but I just love how intricate this hairstyle looks. Let me know where you’d wear this hairstyle whether it be to school, the gym or just for fun.

Thanks for watching!

3 Easy Updo Hairstyles

3 Easy Updo Hairstyles Supplies:

  • Paddle brush
  • Elastic bands
  • Hair band
  • Bobby pins
  • Hairspray

High Bun Instructions:

  1. For the first style, I’m going to brush all of my hair into a high ponytail and tie it off with a hair band.
  2. Now I’m going to gather the ponytail and starting from the bottom of the hair band I’m going to wrap the hair clock-wise around the hair band.
  3. Then once the hair wraps all the way around the hair band and is at the bottom again, I’m going to take the ends of the hair and tuck it underneath the base of the ponytail. Then I will pull it up through the center.
  4. Then I’m going to grab some bobby pins and begin pinning the bun in place.
  5. I’m just going to grip small pieces of the bun and then slide the bobby pins underneath the hair so they don’t show. I used about three or four bobby pins.
  6. Now I’m going to take the ends sticking out from the center and continue wrapping them in the same direction as the bun and tuck the very ends underneath the rest of the hair.
  7. Then I’m going to slide some more bobby pins around the edges of the bun to make sure it’s held in place and won’t come loose.
  8. Then I’m just going to spray the style with hairspray and smooth my fingers over the bun so it looks clean and sleek.

I love how elegant this style looks, it reminds me of something a ballerina would wear but would also look pretty for any kind of formal event.

Mohawk Buns Instructions:

  1. For the next hairstyle, I’m going to divide the hair into three sections. For the first section, I’m going to create a part just above my temples and tie off this top section at the back of my head using a clear elastic band.
  2. I’m going to clip this section out of the way and divide off the second section of hair. This one’s going to be just under my temples. I’m going to tie this section using another elastic directly under the first section at the back of my head.
  3. I’m going to clip this section out of the way and tie the remaining hair into the third and final section using another clear elastic band under the first two.
  4. I’m going to tie each of these sections into a knot and you can do this any way that’s easiest for you but I’ll show you how I do mine.
  5. With the top section, I’m going to take my right pointer finger and place it on top of the hair. I’m going to wrap the hair around my finger with my left hand and then twist my pointer finger clock-wise to twist the hair around my finger.
  6. Then I’m going to put my thumb through the hole that my pointer finger is in and grab the ends of the hair pulling them through the hole.
  7. Then I’m just going to lay the knot against my head and slide some bobby pins around the base to pin it in place against my head.
  8. Again, I’m just grabbing a few hairs with the bobby pins and then sliding them underneath the hair so they don’t show.
  9. Now I’m going to take the ends from the first bun and combine them with the hair from the second ponytail.
  10. With this hair I’m going to create a second knot but I’m going to wrap the hair backwards from the first.
  11. So I’m wrapping the hair around my left finger, twisting my hair to wrap the hair into a twist. Then I’ll place my thumb through the hole and pulling the ends through the hole to create a knot.
  12. The I’m just going to secure the knot against my head. I’m going to slide some bobby pins around the edges of the bun, hiding the bobby pins underneath the hair.
  13. Now I’m going to combine the ends from the second knot with the third ponytail and tie this into another knot.
  14. I’m switching directions again so this hair with wrap around my right hand like the first knot. Then I’ll pull the ends through the hole created with the twist. Then lay the knot against my head underneath the second one and pin it in place with 4 or 5 bobby pins.

Styles like this are some of my very favorites. It’s like a mix between a high bun and low bun. I just love it so much.

Low Bun Instructions:

  1. For the third style, I’ve got my hair parted on the right side though you could put it wherever you normally prefer.
  2. I’m just going to divide off a section of hair from my crown and pin this in place at the back of my head.
  3. Then I’m going to take the side section on the left and drape this over the crown section pinning it with a bobby pin.
  4. Next I’m going to take the right section and bring this over the other two sections at the back of my head. Then pin it in place with a bobby pin.
  5. Once that’s all pinned I’m going to pull small sections up and forwards along the crown to add some detailing and texture.
  6. I’m going to take the hair at the nape of my neck and pin it towards the center of my head. I’m just bringing it across and pinning it in place with bobby pins.
  7. Then I’m going to combine the rest of the hair together and tie a clear elastic band around it about two or three inches down.
  8. Now I’m going to wrap the hair up towards the center of my head, tucking the ends around the left side.
  9. Then to hold the bun in place I’m going to pin the top of the bun. I’m just sliding the bobby pins underneath the bun so they don’t show.
  10. Then with the ends, on the left side of the bun, I’m going to twist these together and then lay it along the top of the bun.
  11. Then I pinned it in place with a few more bobby pins, making sure these are hidden underneath the hair.
  12. To embellish the style a little bit I decided to add some little pearl pins on the right side of the bun.

Thank you so much for watching!
