Cascading Bows Ponytail Hairstyle

A cute and girly hairstyle.

This tutorial features bows made from hair, cascading down a ponytail.

The basic idea for our video today is based off of some cute hair bows that we first saw on an Instagram account called "kares84." If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you may remember seeing the photo we are referring to (as we shared it a few weeks ago on our pages.) In the original hairstyle, the bows were utilized in a "French bubble braid."  We decided to try them out cascading down a regular ponytail for our video today.

Of course, you can add as many bows as you want to your style (some of this will depend on the length of hair you are working with.)  As shown in our tutorial below, you can stop at just one (which our princess has named the "eyeglasses ponytail") or you can add several bows down the length of your ponytail.  Also, the strand of hair in the middle of the bow is optional and can be left out or added in, for two different looks.

As shown below... the "eyeglasses ponytail." ;)  This is The Princess's favorite variation of this style!

I think incorporating these bows would make such a cute hairstyle for a flower girl or other special occasion. And really, they are not time consuming to create, so I could see this working as a hairstyle for school mornings... when you want something more than just a standard ponytail.

Supplies needed to create this look:
  • 1 elastic for the top of the ponytail, as well as 1 small elastic for each bow.  (Depending on how you finish each bow, you may need one more elastic to secure the end.)
  • Gel, pomade, finishing hairspray (optional)

Cinderella Hairstyle, Princess Hairstyles

Cinderella hair tutorial
 
A hairstyle literally fit for a Princess!  A Cinderella hairstyle tutorial. 

Hey guys!  As part of our "Halloween hairstyles series" this month, we wanted to add another style to our Disney Princess Hairstyles collection. We decided on a beautiful Cinderella inspired updo. Anyone planning on dressing up as Cinderella for Halloween this year?

Also, this hairstyle doesn't have to be just for Halloween.  I think this would make a lovely and elegant style for a flower girl, bride, Prom, Homecoming, church, etc.

I'm assuming pretty much everyone has watched Cinderella at some point, right? You might remember she was wearing a style similar to this at the ball (while wearing the gorgeous blue ball gown.) Of course, this is not an exact replica of Cinderella's hairstyle (as is the case with most cartoon inspired hair) but rather our interpretation of a Cinderella bun.

There are many different ways you could go about creating this style and we actually tried a few different techniques before we settled on this one. We mostly just wanted to keep this tutorial easy, simple, and quick for everyone.  ;)  The technique we used in our video tutorial below should work with long hair, medium hair, and maybe even hair on the shorter side.  If you are working with extremely thick hair, you may want to split the ponytail up into a few different sections before you roll her hair up, instead of creating one big roll like we did.

In hindsight, if I were to create this style again, I would place the ponytail up a little higher on her head for a more authentic look... keep that in mind if you give this one a try. Also, Cinderella has bangs, and "our princess" does not.  So, if you have bangs, all the better for this style! You can style them in front of the headband just like Cinderella.

Supplies needed to recreate this look:
  • 3 medium size elastics
  • Several bobby pins
  • Topsy tail (optional)
  • Blue headband or ribbon
  • Finishing hair spray, pomade, or gel

Pirate Girl Hairstyle, Halloween Hairstyles

 ARrr Matey!

Pirate hairstyle, Halloween

We have had many requests for quick and easy Halloween hairstyle tutorials this year, and today we are showing the second easy hairstyle in our "Halloween Hair series,"  the "Pirate Girl Hairstyle." (If you missed our first Halloween hairstyle from last week, click here to see a fun Genie Hairstyle.)    

This style is very simple, easy, and cute. We like that you could change this style up to go as a pretty pirate, a scary pirate, or even as more of a gypsy character using this same concept!  

Halloween hairstyle ideas, pirate hair

We wanted her hair to be sort of tousled and natural looking, aka "Pirates of the Caribbean."  So, to create the waves in her hair, I did a couple of French braids the night before.  If you are going for more of a "pretty pirate" look, I would suggest a curling wand, curling iron, hot rollers, or other heatless curling method which creates more sleek looking curls.

Supplies Needed:
  • A bandana, scarf, or square piece of fabric. (We purchased our bandana at Walmart for $1.) If you prefer, you could fold the bandana into a rectangular "headband" to go around her head, instead of tying it over her head like we did in the video below.
  • You can add accessories such as feathers, beads, fabric, ribbons, etc. (depending on the look you are going for.)
  •  Earrings, a pirate costume or dress, and some fun makeup would complete this look for a super cute Pirate Halloween costume.
