Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle I’ve been personally trying to master.
Whenever I did it, the braid would always end up a little bit lopsided somehow. I think I finally figured out a trick to help it lay more smoothly against the head though.
It’s such a great hairstyle when you want to wear your hair down but keep the front pieces from falling in your eyes. It’s especially perfect when you’re growing out bangs. I’ve been tempted to cut a fringe lately so it’s something I randomly think about (:
Today’s tutorial is three, easy hairstyles that include a half up, low bun, and ponytail. The concept behind these styles is one of my favorites because the first one leads into the second and third styles. Basically you have to do the first one to do the second and third so it’s perfect for whatever you’ve got planned for that day. Quick transition from down to up. What do you think?!
If you’re a fan of the woven braid, then you’re going to love today’s tutorial. I used the same technique for this half updo and it makes creating these braids so much easier to do than other tutorials I’ve seen.
I’ve always been too afraid to try out any braid that has more than 4 sections but with this technique you’re basically focusing on three strands at the beginning instead of 5 so it’s a lot easier to see and control what you’re doing.
I hope the tutorial is easy to understand and that you give it a try. As always, be sure to let me know what you think! xo, Missy
Today’s tutorial is a style I’ve worn before but never considered filming a tutorial for it. It’s an easy way to dress up a simple ponytail and works great as a heatless hairstyle too.

Step 1 / To start this hairstyle, pick up a section of hair at the top of the head and divide it into three sections.
Step 2 / Cross the left strand under the middle, then cross the right strand under the middle.
Step 3 / Now combine the middle and left strand together.
Step 4 / Take a small piece from the left side and cross it under to the right side. Pick up a new section and cross it under to the left side.
Step 5 / Then take a small piece from the right side, cross it under the left, pick up a new section of hair and cross it under to the left side.
Step 6 / Repeat those steps continuing the dutch fishtail braid until all of the hair is brought into the braid and it reaches the nape of the neck.
Step 7 / Now tie off the end of the braid with a hair band at the nape of my neck.
Step 8 / Go back over the braid and pull on the edges to make it wider and more full.
Step 9 / Then take a section of hair from the ponytail, wrap it around the hair band, and pin it underneath with a bobby pin.
Hello! Thank you so much for being here! Today’s tutorial is an old favorite that somehow never got a video tutorial. If you struggle with braids then this is definitely a style you need to try. It looks like a braid but, surprise! it’s not and is done with elastic bands instead. It looks super cool and I guarantee you’ll get a lot of compliments whenever you wear this hairstyle. Let me know what you think and be sure to give it a shot!
Step 1 / Start by picking up a section of hair at the top of the head and tie it with an elastic band at the crown.
Step 2 / Now clip this ponytail out of the way.
Step 3 / Pick up a new section of hair underneath the first one, from above the ears, and tie it with a second elastic.
Step 4 / Let down the first ponytail, divide it into two sections and bring the second ponytail up through the middle of the two sections, clipping it out of the way.
Step 5 / Now pick up a new section of hair and combine it with the two sections from the first ponytail, tying it all together with an elastic.
Step 6 / Then let down the top ponytail, divide it into two sections and bring the bottom ponytail through the middle, clipping it out of the way.
Step 7 / Pick up a new section of hair and combine it with the two sections from the top ponytail, tying it all together with an elastic.
Step 8 / Once all of the hair is brought into the braid, continue dividing the top ponytail, wrapping it around the bottom ponytail and tying the hair together with an elastic, creating three more sections of the braid.
Step 9 / Now go back over each section, pulling on the sections making the braid fuller.
Step 10 / Smooth down any flyaways with a firm-hold hairspray.
