2 Easy Hairstyles For School - Side Dutch Braid and Messy Bun Twist

2 Easy and Quick Back To School Hairstyles

This week we are adding 2 more styles to our "back to school hairstyles" collection! If you missed our video last week (showing 3 more school hairstyle ideas) you can find it here: 3 Easy Back To School Hairstyle Tutorials.

We love quick and easy hairstyles, buns, and braids for school mornings. Since it is "back to school time" for a lot of you, we wanted to share a few simple styles that my daughter frequently wears to school.  None of these hairstyles are super unique or extra special... but classic, cute, and fashionable styles that we use on a regular basis.  We are hoping these are even doable for those of you who do your own hair!

We have already filmed more of our "go to" hairstyles and will be posting them throughout the month of August, so be on the look out if you are wanting more quick and easy ideas for school hair! 

Hairstyles included in this video:

#1 Classic Side Dutch Braid

#2 Messy Bun Twist Hairstyle (Inspired by a tutorial we saw on "8 passengers" family vlog channel.) Depending on what you wear and how you want this bun to look, you could dress it up or down.  I could see this working as a fancy updo for Prom... or as an every day casual school hairstyle.

Both this voluminous side Dutch braid and messy bun twist would be great for teens, girls, or even busy moms. Both styles should work with long hair, medium hair, straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair.

Supplies needed to recreate these looks: 

Side dutch braid:

  • 1 medium size, clear elastic
  • Finishing hairspray (optional)
Messy bun twist:
  • 1 hair tie (large enough to make a ponytail with all of your hair)
  • Either 1-2 hair elastics, or several bobby pins (depending on how you choose to finish and secure the bun.)
  • Finishing hairspray (optional)
