Easter Basket Hairstyle!!

I love how this one turned out! And don't worry, it looks like it may be difficult, but it's really not. It's easy and fairly quick! The best part? Only one elastic to take out when you're done!!

We recently added a video tutorial of this hairstyle if you prefer to learn by video. You can find that here: Basket Weave Hairstyle Video

Apply a little gel/putty/pomade (whatever you use) to everything and start with a simple part like this.....About an inch into the part, make a box.Pull the hair around the box into a half pony, then continue with the part through the box so that you end up with 2 sections on top. Put one section in a temporary elastic out of the way. Thanks to some of YOU I discovered these nifty plastic (not sharp) needles! Thank you, thank you! You can buy a package of 4 for $1.50 at Walmart in the craft section. (I would recommend getting the biggest ones they have, the smaller ones are harder to thread.) You'll also need a piece or string or dental floss (that's what I used) to make the threading a snap! Thread both ends of the floss through the eye of the plastic needle like this....Then, section out a small piece of hair at the front of the part, slip the hair through the loop of floss and pull the floss and hair through the needle to thread it.Now comes the fun part! Coming straight down from the part, weave the needle in and out of the hair in the half pony. Continue pulling down and the hair will follow. I was a little worried this was going to pull, but it didn't. She didn't complain from pulling at all during the whole process.So, here's the first section all finished. Keep going all the way along the part, alternating with going over first, then under first to make the woven pattern.Here it is with both sides completed.Now for some curls, here we are about halfway through the curling process. I curled the pieces left from the weaving and the hair in the pony, leaving the underneath straight.
Of course we needed to add a cute Easter Bow to finish it off!




I'm thinking this is THE hairstyle we'll be using for Easter Sunday. We both love it! Who knew a hairstyle could be inspired by an Easter Basket? Now I need some chocolate, or maybe some peeps.....

  3. That is so BEAUTIFUL! I love it and I would have never thought to do that on my own. This is one of my favorites! I just hope I can make it look as pretty as you did.

  4. I did this one several months back and never posted it because by the end of the day it looked like poo. those strands were just too lose on Beans hair. does it hold up better in thick hair? Because I loved how it looked to start with, but it just fell apart easily on her hair. Did you have that problem? Oh-- and I weaved the hard way---- that needle is brilliant!

  6. I LOVE this! Not sure I'll be able to get it to work on my Princess, but definitely worth a shot. Very very cute!

  7. Okay I must admit, I looked at the picture of the finished 'do... then I read the part where you said it's easy and I thought HA!

    BUT, your description was fantastic and I think I may actually be able to do this! THANK you! =)

  8. Jenn, That's hilarious you did this too! And here I thought I was being tricky, LOL. It actually held up pretty well. I put some gel in before I started, then sprayed with hairspray when I was done. Also, I did the hair in the half pony pretty tight which helped hold everything together, I think. It probably made a huge difference that I did this one on a Sunday so she was mostly sitting in church and not out on a playground as well. :) Good luck with it if you try it again.

  9. That is amazing! I'm thinking there will now be at least 2 little girls with that hair come April 12:) Thanks for the instructions! My girl is a wild one all the time, even at church, so here's hoping it'll hold.

  11. wow..how cute.. how do you get her hair to curl like that? so you spray any thing in her hair before you curl it and do you use a curling iron or hot rollers??

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh wow! I love this and I love the step by step instructions, they are so helpful! Thanks for your cute site and for your imagination, since I dont have any. :) Now my Princesses have gorgeous hair every day.

  14. Well, I'm not sure about the Peeps, but I could go for some CHOCOLATE! That hairstyle is SO inspiring (in a chocoalte way)! I think we'll give it a go for Easter, too! Thanks for the fabulous idea!

  15. Momma2.....
    I actually use a flat iron to curl her hair. The curl seems to stay in much longer that way. Also, I spray a little hairspray before and after curling. I haven't made a tutorial for curling with a flat iron yet, maybe someday. But, I remember seeing a really good one over on "cutie pie hair creations."

  27. Oh, that is the CUTEST thing EVER. But my daughter is in the middle of trying to grow out her bangs and they wouldn't reach all the way around to the half pony in the back. I'm going to have to take a mental note and remember it for next year. Thanks again, so much for all the cute ideas.

    *hugs*
