Tinker Bell Hair Tutorial

Tinkerbell hair tutorial

This Tinkerbell hair tutorial is inspired by the hairstyle worn on Disney's fairy Tinker Bell in the movie Peter Pan! A cute messy bun or "top knot" wrapped with ribbon and side swept bangs.  Of course, my daughter doesn't have bangs (as I'm sure many of you don't as well) so we made some "fake bangs" using her own hair!

Tinker Bell Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



We have always loved Disney hairstyles and Halloween hairstyles and could not wait to film this hair tutorial! We have loved watching Disney movies and think Tinker Bell would be such a fun character to dress up as for Halloween, or for your next trip to Disneyland, Disneyworld, or Disney birthday party. This hairstyle would look great with a Tinker Bell fairy costume!

Tinker bell hairstyle tutorial, how to make faux bangs

The method we used for creating the "faux fringe" or bangs could be used for every day hairstyles as well (this doesn't have to be just for Tinkerbell!)  It might be fun to change up your look and have bangs for the day.  I have seen this method used with a thick headband placed in front of the bun, which ends up making the bangs look really authentic and more natural!

Supplies we used to create this look:
  • 1 Hair tie
  •  Several bobby pins
  •  Flat Iron (affiliate)

Wonder Woman hairstyle tutorial! DIY Braided Headpiece, Halloween Hair

Wonder Woman hairstyle tutorial! How to make a WW headband using braids for Halloween.

You'll love this Wonder Woman hairstyle featuring a DIY headpiece made from your own hair! A perfect Halloween hairstyle to go with your Wonder Woman costume.  And the best part? You will not need to purchase or make a wonder woman headband or crown to complete your look. Our tutorial today shows how to create a wonder woman headband using 4 cornrow braids and an inexpensive red or gold star sticker.  This warrior braid / super hero hairstyle is edgy, unique, and fierce. So fun!

Wonder Woman Hairstyle, Braided Headband Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



As mentioned in our wonder woman hair tutorial (above) we would suggest adding large, voluminous curls to complete your wonder woman Halloween costume and hairstyle.  We have a tutorial showing how to curl hair with a curling wand that would work great. I would suggest using a large barrel for loose, bouncy curls.

Wonder woman DIY headpiece or headband tutorial.

 Supplies needed to recreate this Wonder Woman inspired headpiece:
  • Several small, clear hair elastics.
  • Sectioning clips (alligator clips or claw clips) to help keep hair out of your way while braiding. 
  • A gold or red star sticker.
  • Pomade, gel, hairspray, etc. to help control flyaways.
Over the years we have seen many awesome hairstyles using braids placed over the forehead on Instagram and Pinterest and had the idea to make a wonder woman headband using this concept a few months ago when we heard there would be a DC comics wonder woman movie coming out in 2017! A few inspiring hairstyle accounts we have seen these trendy "forehead braid" or braided tiara warrior princess hairstyles on recently: @ashley_cardon_hairstyles @trenzasnmba @vlechtidee @brianasbraids @ashton_hairstyles @tinkerbeanpoplettes_hairdesign

Hope you enjoyed our Wonder Woman hairstyle tutorial.  Happy Halloween!

6 Disney Princess Hair Tutorials!


6 Disney princess hair tutorials! Video instructions for each hairstyle. #halloween #halloweenhairstyles #disney #disneyprincess

This week we wanted to share 6 of our favorite Disney Princess Hair tutorials (including Elsa, Anna, Belle, Cinderella, and Jasmine) all together in one compilation video! We thought these would be great Halloween hairstyles to go with your princess costumes and dresses, or for your next trip to Disneyland, Disney world, a princess birthday party, or dress up event. All of these princess hairstyles are fairly easy and "doable." We have tried to simplify and modify the styles to work with "real hair" as most of us weren't born with long, thick, flowing, cartoon princess locks!

Squiggle Knot Braid, Beautiful Half Up Hairstyle Tutorial

Squiggle knot braid video tutorial

For today's hairstyle tutorial, we have combined a lace feather braid with a  new knotting technique to create a gorgeous and unique braided half up hairstyle for long and medium length hair.

We're loving the intricate look of this squiggle braid!  I could see this working as a bridal hairstyle or for many other special occasions (Prom, Homecoming, recitals, communions, etc.) The knotted lace or woven lattice pattern reminds me of something you would see on a medieval princess or at a renaissance fair!

Squiggle Knot Braid Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



This style is surprisingly easier than it looks and fairly quick to make (after you get the knot tying technique down) and should hold up decently well since it is secured with braids on both the top and bottom of the delicate knots. 

Squiggle knot braid, pretty braided hairstyle

Hair tutorial, squiggle knot braid half up hairstyle

 Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • 2 small, clear, hair elastics,
  • Pomade, gel, serum, or other hair product to help control flyaways.
 The trick to getting this pattern to look nice is tying all of the knots the same way (as shown in our video tutorial above) and using hair product before you start to keep things smooth and neat.

Hope you enjoy!

Trolls Headband Tutorial & Easy DIY Halloween Costume

Cute Trolls Headband Tutorial #halloween

Since Halloween is right around the corner, this week we are showing a fun DIY "Halloween hairstyle" and Trolls costume idea!   We are loving how easy and quick this "no sew" Trolls headband is to make.  Your finished Trolls hairstyle could be worn to school for a Halloween party, crazy hair day, a Halloween dance, a trip to the pumpkin patch, Oktoberfest, as part of a costume for trick or treating, dress up, or to watch the new Trolls movie featuring Anna Kendrick (Poppy) and Justin Timberlake.  We have seen these cute headbands all over Pinterest and Etsy and thought they were such a great idea!  We love that you could dress up as a troll without having to wear a hot, itchy, and uncomfortable wig!

Trolls Headband Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



Trolls hair video tutorial #halloween #trolls
  
Supplies Needed To Create Your Own Troll Hair:
  • Around 5 yards of tulle (cut into 6x24 inch strips.)  As mentioned in our video tutorial (above) stiffer tulle will work best and don't worry about getting your strips cut perfectly.  You can use any color you want and can even mix colors if you desire multi colored hair or even rainbow hair.
  • 1 headband
  • 1 medium size, clear elastic
  • Scissors
  • Decorative flowers, ribbons, or other accessories (optional)
  • Hot glue gun
To finish your trolls costume, you could wear an overall dress with a plain, long sleeve t-shirt and matching tights.

Cute #halloween costume! Trolls headband DIY video tutorial, so easy.

Homecoming Hairstyles, Flower Pull Through Side Braid

Gorgeous Homecoming hairstyle. Pull through braid on the side with rosette accents. Video tutorial.

Looking for a hairstyle for Homecoming? You'll love this beautiful side pull-through braid style with braided rose accents! This hairstyle may even be easy enough to do on yourself as a DIY Homecoming or Prom hairstyle! We know many of you will be going to the Homecoming dance in the near future, so we thought it would be fun to do a formal hairstyle tutorial this week. If you are looking for more Homecoming hair ideas, we have shown several fancy updos and half up styles in the past. Feel free to look through our Prom hairstyles for more ideas!

Flower Pull-Through Side Braid Video Tutorial (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)




We have fallen in love with the look of the ever popular pull through braid and especially love it swept loosely to the side with the edges stretched out voluminously. We decided to take this glamorous style to the next level by adding some rolled flower braid accents to the center of the braid. Of course, you can add as many braided roses as you wish. If you wanted even more glam, you could incorporate jewels, other hair jewelry, or accessories to the finished braid, or in the center of your rosettes.

Cute Homecoming hairstyle. Pull through braid with flower braid accents. Video tutorial.

This hairstyle turned out so beautiful and would look stunning with a fancy Homecoming dress, for the Prom, or other formal events such as a wedding (for the bride, bridesmaids, flower girls or guests.) Although this style is quite simple, I think it is really gorgeous and would stay in place through lots of dancing and look great in photos!

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • Several small or medium size, clear elastics. (The amount will depend on your hair length and thickness of sections.)
  • Bobby pins.  We prefer using miniature pins (affiliate) when we are creating the rosettes as they are easier to hide.  
  • Finishing hair spray.
 This style will work best with long hair, or at least medium length. If your hair is on the shorter side, you could possibly opt for a half up variation of the style.
