2 Easy Prom Hairstyles in 3 Minutes!

2 Easy, 5 Minute Prom Hairstyles

Today we are sharing 2 half up Prom hairstyles that are so easy you could do them yourself!  These styles are both very simple and elegant.

2 Easy Prom Hairstyles, Video Tutorial: 

(Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

The 1st hairstyle is a half-up with the sides tied back into a standard knot.  We have used a rhinestone clip to secure the knot on one side, adding some bling to the style.  You could use a bobby pin to secure your knot if you don't want to use a clip.

The 2nd hairstyle is a half up, half down ponytail which we flipped under with a topsy tail (affiliate.) We then flipped the ends back through to form a voluminous loop.  We added a bracelet which we found at a local discount store to spice up the style. You could find one that matches your earrings, necklace, or dress!

Both of these styles were created using 2nd day curls, which we originally did using a NuMe curling wand (affiliate.)

By the way, in case you are wondering which dress she chose in our last video...  She chose dress #6 and had a great time at the dance!

Hope you are all excited for #prom season! #promhair #promhairstyle

All of these dresses came from her closet, or have been given/ loaned to her from the closets of her friends and family! As you can see, she has quite an assortment of different styles to choose from and they are all so cute, so it will be a hard choice!

Dress #1 Sleeveless, cream colored fitted lace on top. Short, flowy light pink flower print skirt.

Dress #2 Knee length, knit, flower pattern with pockets and ruffles on the sleeves.

Dress #3 Mustard color crocheted floor length dress with 3/4 sleeves.

Dress #4 Black lace, knee length, with white ribbon and lace accents and bell sleeves. 

Dress #5 Short white shift dress with lace sleeves.

Which dress is your favorite? Leave a comment letting us know which one you would choose.

Some of these dresses are more casual and could be worn to church, weddings, dinners, or other events. And a few of these dresses are more formal and could even be worn to the Prom, Homecoming, or other more fancy events and dances. At her school, the semi formal dances have a wide variety of styles and dresses worn by the girls. Some go all out and wear a formal dress, while others wear casual dresses. She could really wear any one of these for her date.

How To Make A Fishtail Chain Braid Ponytail Hairstyle

Cute back to school hairstyle! Fishtail chain braid ponytail hair tutorial.

Today's hair tutorial is a beautiful and easy braided ponytail hairstyle that we have been seeing all over Instagram recently.  We fell in love with it when we first saw it and have had a few requests for a tutorial, so we knew we wanted to do a video on this style!

This ponytail is so pretty and unique looking and the best part is that it is much easier to make than it looks.  If you want to cut down on some time, you could use regular 3 strand braids or twist braids instead of fishtail braids (as they are so gorgeous, but a little more time consuming.)

This ponytail style would be great for casual occasions as well as formal events. For a more polished look, hair could be wrapped around the top of the ponytail before you start braiding.

Adorable fishtail chain braid ponytail hair tutorial.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • 1 medium size hair tie for the top of the ponytail.
  • Several medium/small hair elastics. The amount will depend on the length of hair you are working with and how many loops or links you will be making in the chain braid.
  • Hair spray, wax, gel, or other product to help with flyaways.
This hairstyle will work best with long to medium length hair.  You could also create this style using a half ponytail if you desire.

Some amazing Instagram accounts we remember seeing this hairstyle on and were inspired by: _ardo_ardo_, tojashair,, ymbook, ryt_rs, my_babygirlshair, hair_glamour1, mita_p_akbari, braidymom, trencitajohnson

How To Heart Hairstyle, Double Linked Heart Ponytail

Double linked heart ponytail hairstyle for Valentine's Day.

We wanted to share one more cute, last minute, heart hairstyle today before Valentine's Day is over! Have you decided how you are going to wear your hair for Valentine's this year?

In this tutorial, we are using a technique we saw on "Cute Girls Hairstyles" a few years ago to make these hearts. We love this double linked heart ponytail because it is adorable and fairly quick and easy to create.

Double Linked Heart Ponytail Video Tutorial:  (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

In our video we show 2 ways this heart ponytail can be worn. If you have long hair, you could actually add another set of hearts beneath the braids for a 3rd variation.

Cute heart hairstyle for Valentine's Day!

Cute and easy heart hair for Valentine's Day.

To complete this heart ponytail, you will need a medium size hair tie and several small hair elastics. That's it!

We have been "hair blogging" for 11 years now! And during each January/February of those 11 years, we have posted several heart shaped or heart themed hairstyles.... which adds up to a lot of hearts. I actually counted over 40 heart hairstyles on our site so far! So, if you are looking for more heart hair ideas, click on our Valentine's hairstyles to see more. (Some of them are from before we started doing YouTube and are picture tutorials only.)

Obviously this hairstyle would be cute for Valentine's Day, but could also be worn for other occasions. I'm thinking this would be adorable for a flower girl at a wedding or just a regular school day.

Real TYME Iron VS Knock Off! Comparison and Review

Today we are reviewing and comparing a name brand TYME Iron Pro against an off brand iron called a "twist straightening iron."

If you watched our video from a few weeks ago, you know that we unknowingly purchased a "fake" iron and did a review video of that product.  After posting the video, we were contacted by TYME and asked if we would like an authentic TYME Iron to compare to the knock off iron that we had purchased.  Our findings and opinions are in the video below...

Real TYME Iron Vs Knoff Off Comparison Video: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

We have all seen the ads on Facebook showing people effortlessly and quickly styling their hair with these irons. As mentioned in our video, there is a learning curve and it does take some getting used to. But after you figure it out, these irons really do curl just like the online videos show! I actually use my TYME iron all the time now and it really does cut down on curling time!

The authentic Tyme Iron can be found here.

The "off brand" twist straightening iron can be found here.

The question is... is it worth spending the extra money to get the real TYME iron vs the fake?
