2 Fun Hairstyles For St. Patrick's Day!
We have seen many cute and creative shamrock & clover hairstyles around the web throughout the years, & we actually created a 3 leaf clover hairstyle for our blog way back in 2009 (before we started doing YouTube videos.) But, we realized that we have never made a video tutorial showing a shamrock hairstyle. So, we decided to add one to our St. Patricks Hairstyle collection this year!
There are realistically only so many ways a clover hairstyle can be constructed. But, the idea and basic concept we used to form these "clover leaves" actually stemmed from a Valentine's "heart hairstyle" on our blog via 2009. And then, we wanted to add some color (green of course) so we incorporated some ribbon around the leaves using the candy stripe method. You could also choose to braid the ribbon into her hair instead if you prefer.
Sad, but true... "The Princess" is growing up and starting to move away from "little girl hairstyles." As you will see in our video tutorial (and photo below) we have also included a more "grown up" St. Patrick's Day ponytail style (for those of you who aren't too excited about sporting a clover on your head, but still want to join in on the fun and not get pinched.) ;)
- 3 lengths of green ribbon (around 12 inches each)
- 2 large hair elastics and 3 small hair elastics (preferably green!) The brand we usually use is called "Goody Ouchless."
- 6 clips/barrettes/hair ties to temporarily keep the ribbon from unraveling while you are working.
