Holiday hair flare

-A A +A

By Madison Peterson

Do you love the holidays? Do you love going to Christmas parties, but just don’t have any ideas for hairdo’s? Well, here is your chance to make your head of hair twinkle in the holiday lights.
The first glitzy hairdo is the Double Fishtail Twist:
1. Begin by sweeping all the hair over to one side of the head…
2. Separate the hair into two smaller sections, and secure one out of the way for now…
3. Using the free section, begin creating a regular fishtail braid… to create a fishtail braid, you begin by separating the
hair into two strands.
4. Now take a very small piece of hair from the outside edge of the right strand, and pull it over the top and place it on the inside edge of the second strand…
5. Now take a small piece from outside edge the left strand, cross it over the top and add it to the inside of that right strand…
6. Repeat Steps 4-5 over and over until you have formed a fishtail braid…
7. Once you reach the end of the braid, secure it with a hair elastic.
8. Now repeat this process with the hair section you had previously secured out of the way…
9. You should now have two finished fishtails at this point.
10. Take the two fishtails and wrap them around each other, flatly, to create the fishtail twist…
11. Remove both elastics at the ends of the fishtails, and re-secure both fishtails together using only one elastic…
12. Loosen any necessary strands to frame the face and soften the look.
13. Add bobby pins for added security, or hairspray (if desired)
The next glittery hairdo is the Dutch Flower Braid:
1. Brush your hair.
2. Take a left side partition on your hair
3. Take few section of hair just below the partition and divide into 3 sections.
4. Bring the right section of hair under the middle and middle section into under the right strand.
5. Now bring the right strand into the middle.
7. Take a few section of hair below the left strand and add it with the left strand.
8. Bring the right strand of hair under middle and middle strand into under the right strand.
9. Do it the same step and coming to other side in the zig-zag manner.
10. At the end of the crown continue the braid.
11. Just pull out the left strand to give flower look.
12. Now wrap the braid in a circle manner and secure it with bobby pin.
The final fanfare of hair is the Lace Braided Bun:
1. Begin by pulling hair up into a high ponytail, and secure with a hair band…
2. Separate a small section of a hair (about ½ inch) out of the ponytail, in the back behind the right ear, and let it fall while you hold onto the rest of the ponytail….
3. Slip the ponytail hair through the bun maker, and snug it down against the head, making sure the sectioned piece stays out of the bun maker (actually, the bun maker should sit right on top of it) …
4. Now, let go of the ponytail, and let the hair fall evenly over the bun maker (try to make sure it is all even all the way around, and that hair evenly covers all of the bun maker) …
5. Comb out any tangles or fly-aways around the bun, to help make the bun look perfect and silky…
6. Now gently part the back hair and find the strand that you intentionally left out…
7. With this strand, begin to create a 3-strand Dutch braid with it (as you braid, add fallen hair from the bun maker into the top strand only … this creates the Lace Braid)…
8. As you continue braiding, make your way around the base of the bun, adding hair into only the top strand, and keeping the braid tight near the base of the bun maker … When you have braided all the way around the bun, meeting where you began, continue a simple 3-strand braid down the remainder of hair, and secure with a small hair elastic …
9. Now, take the tail portion of the braid and tuck it around and under the main braid. It should all fit fairly well under the main braid.  (If you do have a few problem areas, where the braid doesn’t fit well, feel free to tug the top braid down a bit and secure with a bobby pin.) Do you best to make it look like one continuous braid around the bun …
10. You will want to use bobby pins to secure the main braid against the head.
