Easy Hairstyles, The Pineapple Braid

An Easy, Quick, And Cute Hairstyle

easy hairstyles
We have had many requests from you guys lately for simple hairstyles.... as well as hair styles that can be done on yourself. This "pineapple braid" is a quick, cute, and easy "no heat" hairstyle that is great for school, work, dance, or other occasions.  We actually posted a similar style way back in 2008 (around the time we first starting "hair blogging") but never made a video for it until now.  The Princess wears this hairstyle to school quite often since it can be created in less than 5 minutes and we are not morning people!

The Princess's dad named this braid for us. He thinks this hairstyle looks just like a pineapple or a palm tree.  I have to agree!

This style should work with medium hair, long hair, curly hair, or straight hair, and can be done on yourself with a little practice. You can create any type of braid you would like to change things up (including a rope braid, 4 strand, 5 strand, etc.) This technique can also be used to create 2 "spiked" pigtails, as well as a half up style. 

Supplies needed:
  • 1 elastic
  • A couple of bobby pins

One of our subscribers on Youtube mentioned that it reminds them of a hairstyle Phoebe (from the show Friends) would wear. Yes, yes it does!  Look what I found on Google Images...  It looks like Phoebe wore almost this exact same hairstyle to Chandler and Monica's wedding!  ;)
