If you were able to watch us on CW30′s “The Daily Dish” this morning, this is the hairstyle that Goose was wearing. It is perfect for any age, but looks great on her as she is in that “tween” stage of life. If you are visiting us because you saw us on The Daily Dish — Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here! We hope you’ll stay a while & take a look around! We’ve got hundreds of different styles for every age & every occasion so you’re bound to find a thing or two to try on a cute little head of hair!
This first step is optional – Begin by parting out a section of hair on the crown to make a slight “bump” up front. Secure it with a few bobby pins. Our “bump” this day ended out not being much of a bump however!
Next, part the hair from ear to ear like you’re making a half pony. Be careful not too pull too hard on those hairs you’ve bobby pinned when doing this. Make a half pony & on the last wrap of the rubber band, don’t pull the hair through all the way so you end out with a loop that looks like this:
Now grab a small piece of hair that is from your half pony hanging below the loop-
With another finger, poke through the loop (there is no exactness to this btw). This part is hard to describe, so hopefully it makes sense!
Take the small piece of hair you’d pulled up from below & pass it through the loop where your finger was. If you have a topsy tail, this might be helpful at this part of the hairstyle. I just use my fingers to sort of weave the hair & pull it through.
A view from the side after you’ve pulled 1 piece up and woven it through a part of the looped hair.
Continue taking small pieces of hair from below & passing them randomly through sections of the loop above. They will cascade back down once you’ve pulled them through.
You can do as many of these as you want and it is all just randomly placed. If it looks random & maybe a bit messy that is fine.
You can leave all those cascading pieces of hair straight, or to make it a bit fancier of a style, I curl them. I use my small little iron for that.
Curl as few or as many of those pieces as you like.
Now here’s another step you can choose to do. To hide the rubber band on top of the loop, I pull a few pieces from the top of the loop up and secure them with bobby pins just like I do in my messy bun. You can see a video of that HERE. By doing this to the top, the loop won’t look saggy from the side as it’s pulled down by the cascading hair.
I’ve done this style several times, so in these next pictures I pulled more hair up from below & pulled it through the loop of hair on top.
And to add some color, we added this darling headband from All Things Ribbon. Jen shows how to make this exact headband HERE on her blog. And when we were up visiting months back she gave us THE actual headband she shows on her blog! Thanks Jen, we love it! We couldn’t decide which side of her head we liked it on the best though!
*** Also – a slight variation of this style you could do is pull all the hair up in back into a high pony tail and then make the loop. Then pull hair through the loop as shown above. We put Goose’s hair over her shoulders in front to get it out of the way for a minute, and all that hair cascaded down so nicely. So you’ve got a couple options with this style ***
Let us know if you have any questions on this one. Trying to describe things sometimes gets tricky!
