7 quick and easy heatless hairstyles, video tutorial

You ask, and you shall receive!  We had so many requests last week after posting our "7 quick and easy hairstyles for school" for a part 2 video. So, this week we are showing 7 more quick and easy heatless hairstyles, which makes 14 total, or 2 weeks worth of 5 minute hairstyles!

Since my daughter is now a teen in middle school aka junior high, she does her own hair before school every morning.  She is always looking for cute, easy, (and most importantly) QUICK hairstyles that she can do herself (DIY.) For this video we have pulled together 7 more "go to" hairstyles  that we think would be fashionable and simple for teens, tweens, or any age.  These styles aren't anything super unique or intricate, but we are hoping this video will again help add to your collection of every day hairstyle ideas.

Dad braiding, hairstyling challenge

This week we wanted to do something a little bit different on Princess Hairstyles and included our "camera man" in the fun.  Watch our "Dad vs YouTube braiding challenge" to see just how much dad knows about braiding!

P.S. Be sure to let us know how YOU did in the challenge as well!
Tangled twists tie-back hairstyle tutorial.

This fun half-up hairstyle is a variation of a style we posted last week, the "zig zag woven braid."  And although this hairstyle turned out looking nothing like our braid from last week, we utilized the same woven technique (using rope braids) in the top half of the style, ending in a chain braid with the lower half.

This braided hairstyle has an almost princessy, medieval look to it that I just love.  I think this would be great for casual occasions such as school, the beach, work, etc... or for more formal events as well.  With the right dress, this would be an adorable hairstyle for a school dance or wedding.

Tangled Twists Tie Back Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



This hairstyle will work best with long (or at least medium length) hair.  Straight, wavy, or curly hair should be fine.  You may want to use water, gel, or pomade before you braid (if your hair tends to be frizzy or is layered.)  This hairstyle is fairly easy to create, but you will need to make sure to twist all of your braids in the same direction initially (as shown in our video) or the final result will not turn out right when you go to make the final chain braid (or licorice braid.)

Pretty hairstyle. The tangled twists tie back.

Pretty and easy hairstyle. Tangled twists tie back video tutorial.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • Several small, clear elastics (the amount will depend on how many twist braids you end up making.) We used 4.
  • Temporary hair ties or clips.
  • 1 medium elastic for the final braid.
  • Water, gel, pomade (or other product) to help control flyaways.
Zig Zag woven braid. Half up or full ponytail hairstyle.

Our hair tutorial this week features a beautiful woven braid that is so easy to create!  We saw this technique a few months ago on Facebook and fell in love with how simple and gorgeous it is. This braid could be worn for both casual and formal occasions, and so many different styles could be created by using this concept.  As shown in our photos (above) you could make a half up style or a full braided ponytail.  Or, you could start by using this technique to form a half-up and finish off the rest of the hair into a gorgeous updo or bun.  We have another variation that we filmed coming next week with my daughter that I'm sure you will love, so watch for that!

Zig-Zag Woven Braid Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



As shown in our video, depending on how close together you place the elastics while forming this braid, you will have a completely different outcome.  You can decide if you like the elastics showing a little bit (or not) but I think both looks are very cute!

Easy hairstyle! Zig Zag woven braid tutorial.

Supplies needed to recreate this braid:
  • Plenty of small hair elastics.  We used "Goody Ouchless" brand (affiliate) in the smallest size they sell. The amount is going to depend on how far down you go with the braid and the size of sections you take.
  • 1 medium size elastic or hair tie for the bottom of the braid (if you are braiding the full ponytail.)
  • Pomade, gel, finishing hairspray, etc.  (Optional.)
This braid should work with long hair, medium hair, straight, wavy, or curly. To make things easier on yourself, I would recommend cutting the elastics out when you take this style down (rather than unwinding each one.) A seam ripper or nail clippers work really well and make the job painless and quick.
Waterfall braid maker review and tutorial. Made by Conair.

This week we are trying out the "waterfall braid maker" by Conair.  We noticed this product a few months ago while browsing the "hair aisle" at Walmart and were immediately intrigued.  I know there are many people who struggle with making the waterfall braid, and I was curious to see how helpful this would be.  After quickly looking over the instructions on the back of the package at the store, I was thinking it looked pretty overwhelming and overly complicated... but decided to give it a try. After some trial and error (and almost and hour later) I did finally figure out how to use this tool! And as you can see, it does make a pretty braid.

I decided to do a step by step tutorial showing how to use this product, along with a review (for those of you who are visual learners like me.) Maybe between our video tutorial and the written instructions on the package, you will have an easier time figuring this out than I did!  ;)  Enjoy!!

Woven braid tie back hairstyle, video tutorial

This week we are showing a fun half-up woven hairstyle that "The Princess" has been wearing a lot lately. This style has a relaxed, soft, bohemian feel to it (which is so trendy right now) and would be great for teens, women, and girls. I could see this style working for casual occasions; A day at the beach, hanging out with friends, a date, or school.  But, this would also be pretty for more formal events such as a wedding, prom, etc.

Woven Braid Pull Back Hairstyle Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



Although the braiding/weaving in this hairstyle looks to be quite intricate, it is actually fairly quick and easy to create (as shown in our tutorial, above.) This style should work with long hair and medium length hair.  If your hair texture tends to frizz or is prone to flyaways, I would suggest weaving the hair while wet, or use pomade/gel to help keep the braid smooth for you.

Pretty woven half up hairstyle

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • 1 medium size, clear elastic.
  • 2-3 alligator clips/claw clips to help hold things together while you are weaving.
  • Pomade/gel/hair wax to help control flyaways.
Over the past 8 years that we have been hair blogging/vlogging, we have done quite a few woven hairstyles and they always seem to become our favorites.  I think the weaving pattern is just so beautiful! One of the very first hairstyles we posted on our blog (and still one of our all time favorites) was our "woven pigtails" in 2008.  And then the basket weave half-up in 2009. This "woven braid pull back" is a more grown up version (which my daughter loves now that she is a teenager!)
