Tinker Bell Hair Tutorial

Tinkerbell hair tutorial

This Tinkerbell hair tutorial is inspired by the hairstyle worn on Disney's fairy Tinker Bell in the movie Peter Pan! A cute messy bun or "top knot" wrapped with ribbon and side swept bangs.  Of course, my daughter doesn't have bangs (as I'm sure many of you don't as well) so we made some "fake bangs" using her own hair!

Tinker Bell Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



We have always loved Disney hairstyles and Halloween hairstyles and could not wait to film this hair tutorial! We have loved watching Disney movies and think Tinker Bell would be such a fun character to dress up as for Halloween, or for your next trip to Disneyland, Disneyworld, or Disney birthday party. This hairstyle would look great with a Tinker Bell fairy costume!

Tinker bell hairstyle tutorial, how to make faux bangs

The method we used for creating the "faux fringe" or bangs could be used for every day hairstyles as well (this doesn't have to be just for Tinkerbell!)  It might be fun to change up your look and have bangs for the day.  I have seen this method used with a thick headband placed in front of the bun, which ends up making the bangs look really authentic and more natural!

Supplies we used to create this look:
  • 1 Hair tie
  •  Several bobby pins
  •  Flat Iron (affiliate)

Easy Halo or Crown Braid Tutorial

Easy halo braid or crown braid hair tutorial. Video instructions.
In today's hair tutorial we show how to make a crown braid, halo braid, or "Heidi braids" using a super easy method or hair hack.  If you can make a regular french braid, you can do this!

We love the look of a classic halo braid but know it can be a struggle to try and french braid in a circular shape around your head!  This method we are showing today is very easy (if you know how to french braid) and looks adorable besides.

Halo/Crown Braid Cheat, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.) 



Depending on the length of hair you are working with, you could actually cross the braids at the base of her neck before pinning them to the top of her head, to form a full circle with the braids.  My daughter's hair isn't quite long enough for that at the moment, so technically the way we styled her hair in the video (above) could be considered "Heidi braids" or "milkmaid braids" instead of a full halo.

Cute "Heidi braids" hairstyle. Easy method.

We have done this style before starting with regular pigtails, which is another "cheat" or "hair hack" rather than having to french braid around your head.  That is a great method as well, but we love the double braided look this technique creates, and also think this style lays nicer and looks more authentic (since you are actually pulling in separate pieces while french braiding, instead of bringing the hair in all together with a pigtail.)

Step by step hair tutorial. How to make a crown braid or halo braid cheat.

As mentioned in our video, you can leave your braids tight, or stretch them out for 2 different looks.  Stretching the braids will give you a more relaxed, voluminous, slightly messy bohemian look and will also make it easier to tuck in the ends of the braids and hide your bobby pins.  Leaving the braids tight can be super cute as well though, especially for little girls.

Crown braid, top view.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • 1 or 2 medium size hair elastics (depending on length of hair and how you decide to secure the ends of your braids.)
  • Several bobby pins.
  • Finishing hairspray.

This would be a cute hairstyle for school, work, church, dance, sports, special occasions, flower girls, weddings, dress up, holidays, the beach, etc.

Easy Faux Mermaid Braid Hair Tutorial

Pretty mermaid hairstyle. Braiding hack tutorial.

This mermaid braid hairstyle is so pretty and surprisingly easy to create using a french braiding hack shown in our video tutorial below!

You may recognize the faux braiding technique used in the beginning of this video if you watched our hair tutorial last week (the cross bow hairstyle.) These 2 hairstyles start with the exact same steps (even though they turn out completely different.)

Faux Mermaid Braid Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the tutorial directly on YouTube.)



We have always loved mermaid hairstyles and I think this one is so gorgeous with the triple braids and signature mermaid look featuring the delicate strands laying on top of the hair.  P.S. These braids are not just for mermaids! This hairstyle could also be considered in the "warrior braid" category... or medieval, renaissance, or fairy tale princess!  Of course, it would also be cute for regular old school, work, a date, church, school dances, etc.

Mermaid hairstyle, french braiding hack tutorial.


Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • 3 small hair elastics
  • Topsy tail (affiliate) (optional)
 This braided hairstyle will work best with long hair or medium length hair. If you tend to have flyaways, I would suggest adding pomade, gel, or hair wax before braiding.

Faux French Braids and Braided Bow, Cross Bow Hairstyle Tutorial

Faux lace braids and braided bow hair tutorial. Cross Bow Hairstyle.

An adorable braided half up hairstyle without having to know how to french braid!

In today's hair tutorial we are showing how to create a braided bow made out of your own hair, in the center of 2 crossing faux french braids. We thought this style turned out so pretty and feminine looking.  A true princess hairstyle!

Cross Bow Hairstyle, Video Tutorial:  (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.) 




We love half up hairstyles for teens and girls of all ages, and this one is just so cute. This style is easy, even for those who don't know how to french braid.  Of course, if the bow is too much for you, you could leave it off for more of a simple, but still unique braided look as well.

"Cross bow hairstyle." Faux french braids and bow, video tutorial.

The faux lace braids on each side are made by pulling the hair through a regular 3 strand braid, which can be accomplished with a topsy tail tool (affiliate) or just your fingers.  We have shown this faux braiding technique on our blog before, and both methods seem to work equally well.  This hairstyle would be a cute back to school hairstyle, or could be used for special occasions such as Prom, Homecoming, communions, weddings, church, recitals, etc.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • 2 small, clear hair elastics
  • 1 medium size, clear hair elastic.
  • Topsy Tail (affiliate) optional.
This style will work best with long and medium length hair. Straight hair, curly hair or wavy hair.  You may want to add hair product, water (or both) before pulling the sections through the braid if your hair is prone to flyaways.

Easy Fishtail Braid Hack! Snap Braid Half Up Hair Tutorial

Snap braid video tutorial. French fishtail braid hack!

Have you struggled with learning how to french fishtail braid? Or dislike how long these intricate braids can take to create? Then you will love this braiding hack!

For today's hair tutorial we are showing a braiding tool called the "snap braid." We found ours a few years ago on Amazon (affiliate.)  This tool is great for creating half up fishtail hairstyles (as shown)  or full length fishtail braids.

Snap Braid Half Up Fishtail Braid Hairstyle Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



Fishtail braids have gained popularity over the years and are "on trend" with braided hairstyles in general.  Of course, this braid can be made to look tight and neat, or a little more loose and messy. If you have wavy or curly hair, I think this style would look so beautiful and more textured / voluminous. We are loving the carefree boho look of this braid.

How to french fishtail braid cheat!  Snap braid tool.

Supplies needed to recreate this look:
  • A "snap braid" braiding tool (affiliate.) 
  • If you are making a full length braid, you will need a hair tie or elastic to tie the braid off at the end.
  • Finishing hair spray, gel, etc.
Although this method is very easy and fairly quick, it does have a few cons: We noticed that even though we were strategically placing the hair to try and cover the tool, it did end up showing through in a few spots. Also, as you are bringing in each piece, you need to be careful not to add any hair where the tool snaps together at each end, or it will not stay clamped.  And although it was effortless for us to remove this tool at the end of the day, my daughter's hair is very straight and naturally smooth. I could see that if your hair has more texture to it, it could easily get tangled when you go to take it out.  With that said, we love how this braid looked, how simple and quick it was to create, and will be using it again.

Elastic Braid Twist Heart Hairstyle Tutorial For Valentine's

Elastic braid twist heart hair tutorial.  Cute and easy Valentine's Day Hairstyle.
Looking for Valentine's Day hairstyles? You'll love this beautiful twisted heart, elastic braid, romantic half-up hairstyle.

This easy hairstyle would be perfect for school, work, Valentine's Day parties and dances, weddings, and other special or casual occasions. And the best part?  You don't even need to know how to braid!  This style was created by using a series of ponytails (which we call an elastic braid) to create a "french braid effect" without having to braid at all.

Elastic Braid Twist Heart Hairstyle, Video Tutorial (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



We used a simple twisting technique to place the heart in this hairstyle.  If you would rather braid or rope twist each half of the heart for a slightly different look, feel free to do that instead.  Also, as mentioned in our video tutorial (above) we chose to leave this as a half up, half down hairstyle. But, you could keep going with the elastic braid (or any other type of braid) to the ends of her hair, or add a ponytail, or bun at the bottom of the heart for more of an updo look if you desire.

  • Finishing hairspray, gel, pomade, etc. (Optional)

Side Braided Wreath Or Halo Braid Hairstyle

side halo braid or wreath braid tutorial
A cute braided hairstyle for Christmas (or anytime.) No bobby pins required!

Hey guys! This week we are showing a fun variation of the standard halo braid (or wreath braid) which is always a popular style this time of year.  We have utilized an "off centered" dutch lace braid to create this halo on the side of her head, instead of in the center (which is more typical of this style.)  We chose to leave most of her hair down for an elegant half up look.  If you want to make this an updo, you could incorporate all of her hair into this side halo braid as well. 

This would be a fabulous hairstyle for many formal or special occasions:  Holiday parties, church, Christmas Eve, school dances, recitals, etc.

Side Braided Wreath or Halo Braid, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on Youtube.)



Side halo braid or wreath braid half up hairstyle

Pretty Christmas hairstyle, side halo braid tutorial

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle: 
  • 1 medium size clear elastic
  • Hair product to help control flyaways
  • We love that we were able to finish this style with no bobby pins!  If you have fairly long hair, the braid should hold just fine on its own by using the topsy tail technique shown in our video.  If your hair is shorter, you will most likely need a few pins to hold the end in place. 
  • Topsy Tail. These can be found in some stores where beauty supplies are sold, and online here (affiliate.)
  • Decorative hair clips or pins (optional.) We purchased ours at Sally Beauty Supply. We found something similar online here (affiliate.)

The Best Hair Wrapped Ponytail Tutorial

The best hair wrapped ponytail, video tutorial

A "fool proof" and unique method to achieve the perfect hair wrapped ponytail. (No Bobby Pins required!)

Hey guys! We all love a cute and classic ponytail. And a popular, trendy, and well known "trick" of wrapping hair around the top of the ponytail makes it a much more polished and finished looking hairstyle.  This simple technique can take an otherwise lazy or casual ponytail into being fancy enough to wear to a red carpet event, a prom, or a wedding!  But, how many of us struggle with wrapping the hair around the ponytail and then getting it to stay?  Maybe it is just us, but we don't love the "bobby pin method" as it never holds all of the ends tucked in, the pins end up sliding out... and it can hurt.  We have also tried several methods using elastics and topsy tails, but none of them have worked perfectly for us and it usually ends up being a struggle (which kind of defeats the purpose of a seemingly effortless look.) We actually came across the method shown in our hair tutorial (below) when we filmed our "unicorn hairstyle" a few months ago.  But, I'm guessing if you are wanting to do a simple hair wrapped ponytail, you most likely wouldn't think to look for instructions by way of a unicorn hairstyle video lol, so we wanted to make this separate tutorial for you today.

Easy Hair Wrapped Ponytail Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



We added a small french braid with the front/top section of her hair before adding it in to the ponytail. We also share a fun "hair hack" by pushing forward on the braid to create extra volume for more of a faux hawk look.  (You will want to make your braid slightly loose for optimal results with this hack.)  The french braid is optional and we do have a french braiding tutorial if you don't know how to do that. You could also bring her bangs straight back of you wanted, or you could add a pompadour in the front instead if you prefer.

Supplies needed to recreate this look:
  • 1 medium size hair tie (large enough to contain all of your hair.)
  • 1 small, clear elastic.
  • 1 medium size clear elastic (if you are adding the french braid to the ponytail.)
  • Pomade, gel, hair wax, finishing hairspray, etc.
 This hairstyle should work with long hair, medium hair, straight hair, curly hair, and wavy hair.

Topsy Tail Bun Tutorial

Easy and quick topsy tail bun tutorial.  Only one elastic and no bobby pins!
A quick and easy bun, perfect for dance or ballet!

A few weeks ago we saw this simple and beautiful bun while scrolling through Instagram on an account called "brownhairedbliss." As soon as we saw this "flip through topsy tail" technique, we knew we wanted to try it.  My daughter is a dancer, so dance hairstyles and ballet buns are a huge part of our life. ;)  Sometimes it can be a struggle to put all of her long hair up, and we get tired of our usual bun makers, donut buns, and sock buns.  A standard or braided bun (wrapped around the top of the ponytail) always requires using tons of bobby pins and elastics and can be a pain to take out.  So, we were super excited to see that this bun is quick and easy, and that it only requires using one ponytail holder and zero bobby pins!

Topsy Tail Bun Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



P.S. Watch to the end of the video to see how to take this bun out and for some tips and tricks. The topsy tail we used can be found on Amazon (affiliate) and in some stores.  The brand we use is "Conair."

She tested this bun one afternoon while doing all sorts of trampoline tricks, and it held up and stayed in extremely well (which is quite amazing considering it is only being held together with one hair tie.) 

Of course, this bun isn't only for dancers.  This updo hairstyle could be worn for many casual occasions such as school, for sports, for cheer leading, gymnastics, to work, to the beach, etc.  This could also be worn for more formal occasions; church, weddings, prom, homecoming, communions, recitals, flower girls, etc.

Supplies needed to recreate this bun: 
  • 1 hair tie, elastic, or ponytail holder. (You will want something sturdy that can handle all of your hair in a ponytail.)
  • Topsy tail tool. (Affiliate) The package we purchased contains 2 different sizes.  We used the smaller size.
  • Finishing hairspray, pomade, or gel (optional.)

Fancy Fishtail Kit Hair Tutorial, Fishtail Braid With Beads

Goody Fancy Fishtail Braid Kit, Video Tutorial

We recently purchased a "Fancy Fishtail Kit" (made by Goody) and thought it was so fun, we decided to do a tutorial with it.  My daughter wears fishtail braids to school quite often, but loves the subtle style and flair these beads add to the braid.  On top of that, this tool is so much quicker for her than creating a regular fishtail braid (which can be quite time consuming on long hair) and on school mornings, she is all about quick!

Fishtail Braid With Beads, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



This hairstyle would be great for all ages... teens, little girls, even moms.  I could also see this working for casual as well as formal occasions.  The braid itself is quite standard, but the beads give it more of a glamorous look, which would be pretty for Prom, Homecoming, church, recitals, weddings, etc.  You can choose to leave the braid sleek and neat looking, or stretch it out and deconstruct it a bit for more of a relaxed, trendy, and voluminous look. 

My daughter was at school the day I had time to film this tutorial, but we wanted to show you what this looks like on real human hair. I think it's so pretty!

Fancy fishtail braid with beads, video tutorial.  Easy.

This braid can be created on the side (as shown) or in the low center.  Of course, this could also be placed in a high ponytail if you prefer, or even made as a half up hairstyle or wrapped into a bun.

This will work best with medium length or long hair and would be adorable with curly or wavy hair as well as straight. If your hair is longer than the tool,  you can extend the braid all the way to the end of your ponytail with a regular fishtail braid if you prefer, or you can stop at the last bead like we did.

As mentioned in our video, this kit comes in several different colors.  I have seen the beads in silver, gold, and black.  I tried searching online for a link to this kit and did not find it, even on Amazon (I think it is too new.)  But, it can be found in most discount and drug stores (we purchased ours at Walmart.) I am including a picture of the packaging (below) so that you can hopefully find if it if you are wanting one.

Waterfall Braid Maker Tutorial & Review

Waterfall braid maker review and tutorial. Made by Conair.

This week we are trying out the "waterfall braid maker" by Conair.  We noticed this product a few months ago while browsing the "hair aisle" at Walmart and were immediately intrigued.  I know there are many people who struggle with making the waterfall braid, and I was curious to see how helpful this would be.  After quickly looking over the instructions on the back of the package at the store, I was thinking it looked pretty overwhelming and overly complicated... but decided to give it a try. After some trial and error (and almost and hour later) I did finally figure out how to use this tool! And as you can see, it does make a pretty braid.

Waterfall braid maker review and tutorial.

I decided to do a step by step tutorial showing how to use this product, along with a review (for those of you who are visual learners like me.) Maybe between our video tutorial and the written instructions on the package, you will have an easier time figuring this out than I did!  ;)  Enjoy!!

Pinwheel Bun Shortcut Tutorial

Pinwheel bun shortcut hair tutorial. Quick and easy!

Today we are showing a quick and easy "hack" for creating one of our all time favorite hairstyles, the "pinwheel bun." My daughter loves to wear the pinwheel bun to dance class and occasionally to school or church. But, the one complaint we have with our original method is that it can be quite time consuming.  Not to mention, it is a bit of a hassle to take the bun down when you are done wearing it.  This new variation (shown in our video today) is quick, easy, and comes out effortlessly when you are done.

The idea for this "shortcut" came to us a few months ago when my daughter had a dance competition and we were using "the perfect bun" to make her standard performance hairstyle (shown in our latest tutorial.) We wondered how the bun would turn out if we braided her hair first, and loved that the end result looked almost identical to a braided variation of the pinwheel bun (also known as the "bun of braids.")

Easy updo tutorial. Pinwheel bun shortcut.

Of course, there are several variations of the pinwheel that can be created using this technique.  If you want the bun to be more of a twisted texture (like the original) I would suggest utilizing twist braids (or rope braids) instead of standard 3 strand braids in your ponytail.  You could really do any type of braids you want for many different options and variations of this updo.

Pinwheel Bun Shortcut Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



As mentioned in our video, the number of braids you will need to cover the bun foundation is going to depend on your specific hair texture and length.  The longer your hair is, the more times the braids will be wrapping around the foundation to provide more coverage.... so you will need less.  And obviously, thicker hair is going to cover more of the surface area, which means less braids will be needed as well.  If your hair is on the thinner side, I would suggest stretching the braids out before you wrap them up to help cover more area.  Also, if you find a "perfect bun maker" close to the color of hair you are working with, it's not going to matter as much if some of it shows through.

Supplies needed to recreate this bun:
  • 2 ponytail holders or hair elastics
  • Alligator clip or temporary hair ties to keep the braids from unraveling while you work.
  • Several bobby pins
  • A bun foundation as shown in our video. The one we used is called "the perfect bun" and can be found online or in stores. (affiliate.)
  • Finishing hairspray (optional)

This bun would be a great hairstyle for dance, gymnastics, ballet, figure skating and sports, or for formal events such as prom, homecoming, weddings, holidays, and church.

The Perfect Dance Bun and No-Heat Curls Tutorial

The perfect bun for dance and no heat curls tutorial

This week we are adding another "dance bun" technique to our collection!  The princess's standard dance team hairstyle this year is a classic donut bun / sock bun. And, I'm sure many of you who dance are required to wear this hairstyle from time to time for competitions and recitals as well. It seems to be the standard "go to" style for many teams as it is very simple and looks polished besides.

Easy dance bun hairstyle tutorial. Great for ballet, figure skating, gymnastics, etc.

We have shown several different methods for making this type of bun in the past and are always up for trying something new.  Each technique we have tried seems to have its pros and cons. A lot of deciding which bun is best for your dancer is going to depend on her hair texture and length.  We both liked this "perfect bun" kit (made by Remington)  and think it is one of the easier methods for wrapping up long hair into a bun. The first time we tried it we were slightly worried that it may unroll itself (since there is really nothing visible holding it together) but luckily we have not had a problem with it coming out mid-dance yet!  I would definitely recommend using bobby pins all the way around the bun (as demonstrated in our tutorial below) to be sure though.

The "Perfect Bun" Video Tutorial and Review, Plus No-Heat Curls Demo: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)




One of our favorite perks of wearing this bun is the cute no-heat curls or waves you will be left with when you take the bun down.  As mentioned in our video, the curls will turn out best when the hair is wrapped up slightly damp and the bun is left in long enough for the hair to dry completely before taking it out.

Heatless curls using bun maker

Supplies needed to recreate this bun:
  • A bun form. We purchased our "perfect bun" maker at either Walmart or Target (we have had it for awhile and I don't remember which!)  If you are having trouble finding one, they are also sold online. Click here to see it on Amazon (affiliate.)
  • A ponytail holder.
  • Several bobby pins.
  • Pomade or gel and finishing hairspray.
  • Water.
