Back To School Hairstyles, Part 1
We are calling today's hairstyle the "double braided edgy ponytail." This style may look slightly familiar to some of you, as this is kind of similar to the "gymnastics ponytail" we posted about a year ago. But for this style... no French braiding is required. Hooray for quick and simple!
Hair styles with volume on top and the sides slicked back seem to be quite popular right now.... almost a faux hawk look. If you have extra time in the morning, you could cornrow or twist the sides of her head to get that slicked back look (instead of using simple braids like we have here.) Such a trendy style!
You might have noticed her bangs (or fringe) area. We have always called this a "hair puff" but have also heard "hair quiff," "pompadour" or "hair poof." Whatever you like to call it, we think it is super cute and stylish (and really adds some edginess to any style.) In the video below, we show how to make these puffy bangs without having to rat or tease your hair.
- 2-3 bobby pins
- 3 clear hair elastics
- 4 cloth covered ponytail holders to hold the braids while you work
