Our hairstyle today is very quick and simple.  Perfect for those days when you really don't have time for anything complicated, but still want to look cute. This half up style is casual, but also elegant at the same time.  I would call it... bohemian chic.  ;)

We have had a few requests to do some hairstyles for wavy or curly hair.  This style should work with most hair textures (curly, wavy, or straight) and most hair lengths (long hair, medium hair, and even fairly short hair.)

As shown in our video tutorial below: To create these beachy waves on The Princess, we braided her hair while it was damp and left the braids in overnight.  Of course, you could also use a curling iron, curling wand, waver, or other curling method to achieve similar results. Whatever floats your boat!

Criss Cross Twists, Half Up Hair Style Tutorial
We are loving the criss cross woven pattern of these twists in her hair.  So pretty.  As you can see, I chose to place the twists slightly at a diagonal angle for something different.  If you prefer things more uniform, you could place them centered on her head.  This is the fun thing about hairstyling....  hairstyles are like snowflakes in that no two styles ever come out exactly the same!

Supplies Needed:
  • Several small, clear (or similar to your hair color) elastics.  The Brand we use is "Goody Ouchless."  You can use bobby pins instead if you prefer, but I have found that they don't stay in as well with my daughter's fine hair.
  • A decorative clip, bow, or flower, to finish off the style (optional.)
  • Hairspray or gel (optional)
