2 Updo Hairstyles For Homecoming

2 Gorgeous hairstyles for Homecoming or Prom. Star and flower bun video tutorials.

Today's hair tutorial video features 2 of our favorite bun hairstyles that we thought would be perfect for Homecoming or Prom.  If you are looking for a unique and fairly easy updo, either of these sleek and glamorous buns will do the trick. 

We originally posted these hairstyles 5 years ago when my daughter was only 11.  She's 16 now and will actually be going to her own High School Homecoming in a few weeks! We are assuming many of you have never seen this video, so we wanted to resurface it again.

This tutorial shows how to create these bun hairstyles using a knotted braiding technique. These 2 styles would not only be great for formal dances, but many other occasions including: Weddings (bridal hairstyle, or flower girl hairstyle) communions, baptisms, recitals, church, Easter, etc.

Bandables Twisty Braids Headband Review and Tutorial

Bandables twisty braids headband review and tutorial

Today we are testing the "bandables twisty braids headband" by Localoc.  We saw this at our local Walmart and thought it looked cute and fun to try.

We are always looking for easy hairstyles for school mornings and thought it would be perfect for those days when you need a 5 minute hairstyle. (Which is pretty much every school morning at our house!) 

This would also be a great accessory for 2nd or 3rd day hair, to help disguise when it's looking slightly greasy. For those of you who are growing out your bangs, this would be fabulous as well!

Review and Tutorial Video: (Click here to watch this hairstyle video directly on YouTube.)

We liked that the little hair elastics on this headband held her hair back quite tightly without pulling or clamping her hair.  We've tried similar options in the past (with barrettes or clips attached to the headband) and it seems like you need exactly the right amount of hair to make those work. We've had trouble with the hair being too thick to clip the barrettes shut, or the hair being too thin and sliding right out.  So, the elastics are a great option that will accommodate all different hair textures and thickness.

There are many different hairstyles that can be created using this headband.  We have shown just a few basic ideas in this video: 

A half up twist.

 A ponytail.

If you play sports, I think this would be a nice option for keeping your hair out of your face.  You could add a ponytail, bun, or braid and be ready to go.

I think this would look really cute with curled, wavy, or crimped hair as well as straight.  This would also be perfect for short hair, as well as long. So fun!

We unfortunately were not able to find this available to purchase online yet... I think it is too new.  Here are some similar headbands on Amazon, but none with the elastics yet:

Headband 1, Headband 2, Headband 3. You might have better luck finding this at your local drugstore or retailer.

Our next hairstyle is called the "palm tree bubble braid." This fun style looks a lot more difficult than it actually is.  All that is required are a few mini elastics and the ability to make some regular 3 strand braids! My daughter wears this style quite often as a half up (as shown) and also utilized with a full ponytail.

The 3rd hairstyle in our video tutorial today is the "interlocking floating bubble braid." This technique can be used to create so many amazing hairstyles and just looks so cool.  Definitely an attention grabber!

Tips and tricks:
  • Use hair product to help prevent flyaways while you are creating the fishtail and for the finishing touches.  
  • Stretch the edges of your braid for a more voluminous final look. 
  • Miniature bobby pins (affiliate) are easier to hide in styles like this. 
  • You may want to loosen the hair at the crown of her head before you wrap up the braid for a softer and more effortless look.
