Easy Spider Web Hairstyle

Easy #spiderhairstyle tutorial. So cute for #Halloween

Oh no! A spider has spun a web in her hair! ;)

Hey guys!  We love Halloween and look forward to posting Halloween hairstyles each October. This year we wanted a spiderweb hairstyle that would work for teenagers as well as little girls.  You could even wear this style to school or work without being too obnoxious.  Without the plastic spider, this hairstyle would be cute all year round!

Easy Spider Web Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

This Halloween hairstyle is created by using a series of waterfall twist braids.  We love that it only takes a few minutes to spin these braids into a spider web hairstyle.  And the best part... only one elastic to take out when you are done!

Supplies needed to recreate this spider hairstyle:
  • 1 medium size hair elastic
  • Plastic spider (optional.)  We have found that spider rings work great!
  • Temporary clip to hold the braids while you are working.
  • Hair product to help control flyaways.

New Super Easy Way To Make Space Buns - No Bobby Pins!

Super easy way to make space buns. No bobby pins!

Today we are sharing a fun and easy new tutorial for making space buns.  We love that this method requires no bobby pins!

This hairstyle is great for all ages and could be used for many occasions. We love that these double buns are popular and stylish for teens right now. So fun! And if you aren't super excited about the pigtail look, you could still use this method to create one bun in a half up style for a toned down variation.

Cute space buns hairstyle using topsy tail. So Easy!

Easy space buns video tutorial. No bobby pins method.

You may have noticed in our video (above) we used a "topsy tail" to create this style.  This isn't absolutely necessary, but makes it much easier to pull the loops through the elastic.  These tools can be found on Amazon (affiliate.)

This hairstyle will work for medium length, long hair, and even fairly short hair.  If your hair is on the shorter side, we would recommend taking more sections, and only looping them one time each through the elastic.

With Halloween right around the corner, we were thinking these buns could even be used for several different Halloween costumes:  Bears, mice, Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse, dogs, (basically any animals with ears!) You could also use them for rocker chick costumes, barbie, monster high, cheerleaders, fairies, etc, etc.

As mentioned in our tutorial, you can choose to make more of a loose, messy bun type of look, or keep the buns neater for a tight, sleek, coiled bun.  It is up to you!

Bow Tie Braid Ponytail Hair Tutorial

Cute bow tie braid ponytail hair tutorial.

This bow tie braid ponytail is so cute and unique, it's sure to bring you compliments!

You may remember the "bow tie braid hairstyle" we posted last year? This bow tie ponytail is a fun variation of that hairstyle.  We are loving this ponytail method as it is easier and quicker than the original (since no french braids or dutch braiding is required.)

Bow Tie Ponytail Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

The day my daughter wore this hairstyle, she had so many people ask her how to do it.  It is definitely an eye catcher!  We think the bows running down the ponytail are absolutely adorable.  This hairstyle is quickly becoming one of our all time favorites!

This style will work best with long or medium length hair.  As mentioned in our video, you can adjust the number of bows you make (as well as the number of strands forming the bows) to the length and thickness of your own hair. 

We used clear elastics for the center of our hair bows. Colored elastics could also be used for a fun twist.  I think jewels or other hair bling would be so pretty placed in the center of the bows or over the elastics as well.  And of course, if you want to hide the hair tie at the top of the ponytail, you could wrap it with hair before you start braiding.

The best trick we can offer for creating this style is the use of hair product.  We used pomade on each strand before making the bows to keep the flyaways down and to help keep the overall look smooth and sleek.

This hairstyle would be great for school, church, or special occasions. Hope you enjoyed!

My Secret Curls! Best Quick and Easy Heatless Curling Method

Quick and Easy No-Heat Curls. Video Tutorial.

This heatless curling method is our top pick for overnight curls. It is so quick and easy and makes perfect curls! We have been experimenting with different no heat curling methods for awhile now and have finally come up with a technique that we love.

Our Secret Curls Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)

Most curls (without heat) techniques we have tried in the past require sleeping on uncomfortable tight buns, knots, rags, bobby pins, or curlers. We love this method because these small "buns" are loose, and not directly on your head, which doesn't pull or tug on your hair. These work especially well with long hair as you can place them at the ends and not feel any bumps while you sleep.

Our favorite thing about these curls is that it literally takes less than 2 minutes to twist and wrap up your hair, and you only need 2 buns for an entire head of curls. Depending on your preference, you can choose to separate the curls by combing them out, or you can leave the ringlets more intact.

We divided her hair into 2 sections to create these curls. Of course, if you prefer tighter or looser curls, you can adjust the amount of sections to your liking. We feel like pigtails make the perfect curls for her hair, but your hair may be different. The less sections you take, the looser the curls will be.

Supplies needed:
  • Just a few hair ties! You want them strong enough to hold the buns, but made from a soft and stretchy material that won't dent her hair. You'll want to wait several hours for the hair to dry. We usually sleep with these in overnight. As mentioned in our video, you don't want to start with soaking wet hair. Slightly damp works best.

"Big Curls" by Conair. Video showing tutorial and review of the foam rollers.

Today we are testing "Big Curls Bendable Rollers" by Conair. Watch our video (below) to see how our curls turned out and what we thought of the rollers!  We also mention some tips and tricks to hopefully get the best results.

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

These foam rollers claim to "Turn heads with your hair! Provides the confidence great hair brings with affordable, high quality styling tools. For curls and waves with body and bounce, our rollers create style that lasts! The easiest hair roller ever! When we say Roll, Bend, and Set, we mean it, it's as simple as that. Big Curls- create soft, loopy curls by taking large sections and rolling hair to create your desired effect. Big Curls are perfect for night sets, as they are soft and bendable with no hard plastic parts to keep you awake! Wake up refreshed with natural looking curls without a dent or crease in sight. Big Curls can be used on damp or dry hair." (Quote taken from the original packaging on the box.)

Directions on the box:

*Smooth hair by brushing or combing. 
*Section the hair that you are curling and add a small amount of styling product. (Note that we did not do this step.) 
*Roll the hair all the way up in the direction that you want curl. 
*Bend the roller to hold it in place, the wire inside will maintain the bend. 
*Leave rollers in place for at least 20 minutes and if using on damp hair, please leave in until hair is dry. 
*Gently remove and finger comb curls in place. 
*Can be used with a blow dryer. 

Overall we feel like these curlers mostly lived up to their claims. It was super easy and quick to roll up her hair using the rollers and taking them out was very smooth since there are no clips or pins. We did not get quite as much curl as we would have liked but partly this was caused by user error. We did not apply any hair product before placing the rollers (as mentioned in the instructions) and her hair was not completely dry when we took them out (which I believe was the main problem.) I would be very surprised if these actually would've stayed in overnight without using our elastic trick (as shown in our video above.) Although we did not test them on their own to confirm. We definitely plan on using these again just for the fact that they were so quick and easy to take in and out and were relatively comfortable to sleep on. I'm hoping we will get a better result next time by not adding quite as much water to her hair before applying the sponge rollers. These can be found in stores as well as online (affiliate.)

How To Make A Faux Hawk Fan, Half Up Hairstyle

Faux Hawk Fan Half Up Hairstyle Tutorial

Our hairstyle tutorial this week features a trendy dutch braid faux hawk look with twist braid "fans" feeding into each side of the half up braid.

This would be a great style for all ages (teens included) and would be cute for many occasions: School, work, concerts, dances, dates, church, etc.

This hairstyle is inspired by a similar braid we posted on our blog back in 2014 called the "shooting star" which is still one of our all time favorite hairstyles.  This time we wanted to go for more of an edgy look!

Faux Hawk Fan Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the tutorial directly on YouTube.)

Braided "Faux Hawk Fan" Half Up Hairstyle

Faux Hawk Fan Braided Hairstyle, Video Tutorial

Tips for recreating this hairstyle:  Stretch the sides of the main braid for a more voluminous faux hawk.  Also, you may need to tighten the accent braids as you go (to prevent them from slipping out and becoming loose.)  I would recommend applying hair product before making the micro braids for a smoother finish.  This style can also be made using all of your hair in a full dutch braid instead of a half up style if you prefer.

Supplies needed to recreate this style:
  • 3 small hair elastics
  • Temporary hair ties or clips to hold the braids while you are working
  • Hair product to help prevent flyaways
