5 Quick Cute Hairstyles

Our talented friend LaShauna, from Nothing Unruly About These Curls, comes up with some really cute and creative styles that are fairly quick and easy to do. She has shared 5 quick cute hairstyles with us that are perfect school day styles for girls.

STYLE 1: One Hairstyle Two Ways

This style lasted for 1 school week

To get this look:
Step 1:
  Part the hair down the middle, then tie off 1 side so that it will be out the way.
Step 2: With the loose section, part off a front ponytail and rope twist the ponytail (if you don’t know how to create rope twists see our tutorial on 2 strand rope twists).
Step 3: Make a thin cornrow behind the first ponytail
Step 4: Part off another section for the middle ponytail then make another small cornrow section beneath it.
Step 5: Make the bottom ponytail

I repeated this process on the other side. On the 3rd day I simply took the 2 front ponies sprayed them down w/ water added a moisturizer (use checkout code COLDUTHM to save on Bee Mine Products) combed them into 1 center ponytail using a toothbrush and eco-styler gel to smooth her hair. Repeat the steps for the 2nd and 3rd sections and I chose to leave the cornrowed sections alone. She wore it this way for 2 more days

STYLE 2: Small Ponytail into Big Ponytail with Twists

How To:
Step 1: Section hair in to 3 sections (front, middle, bottom)
Step 2: Start with the front section part the hair slightly off center. Take the smallest section of hair, pony tail it with a rubber band then rope twist it down. (I had my daughter hold it so that it wouldn’t unravel while I smoothed out bigger ponytail).
Step 3:  Connect the small twist over to the larger ponytail with a rubber band. With the hanging hair split it in two, rope twist it down and add a barrette to the ends.

For the middle & bottom section repeat the above steps, alternating the side the small ponytail is on.

STYLE 3: 5 Pony Rope Strand Twists

This is a super simple style that took me less than 30 mins to complete & lasted 3 days w/ minor touch up and accessory changes.

How To:
Step 1:
Part the hair in half from ear to ear, tie off the back half .
Step 2: For the front portion part off a small section/ponytail, secure it with an elastic then create 2 strand rope twists all the way down, tie it off with another elastic then add a barrette on top.
Step 3: For the back portion simply part off 3 vertical sections (as equal as possible) secured each with an elastic, rope twist each ponytail, add another elastic and barrette on the ends. Easy peezy!

STYLE 4: Donut Bun with Hanging Braids

This is an easy protective style that took less than 30 mins to complete and she wore it for 1 week with daily touch ups.

Step 1: Part off a small section on the back/bottom of her head and put it into two simple single braids. This section can be as big or small as you like.
Step 2: Put the top portion of the hair in a ponytail using a ouch-less band.
Step 3: Slide the bun maker/donut/sock bun on the ponytail. Lay the hair all around the bun maker and use a smaller tooth comb to smooth the hair down (NOT combing through the hair just smoothing it down). Add another ponytail holder around the bun, don’t wrap it, just put it on top to hold the bun in place. Cornrow or braid the free hair around the bun and bobby pin it in place, then add a cute bow.

STYLE 5: 3 Side Cornrows Into a Ponytail of Twists

Mireya wore this style for Picture day at school. it took less 30 mins to complete. the cornrows lasted all week and I redid the ponytail daily.

Step 1: Make a slanted square on the side of the head
Step 2: Part out and create 3 cornrows in that square.
Step 3: With the free hair smooth it into a side ponytail using an ouch-less cloth band.
Step 4: With the hanging hair make three 2 strand rope twists then loosely braid those twist together and secure with an ouch-less cloth band.
