You are so beautiful and your hair is amazing!! I've always wondered how to make a good ponytail now that my hair is longer (I've kind of always had it mid-lenght but on the short side). I'm going to try your tricks!
Jenny Lee thanks!! That’s definitely helpful. For better or for worse, I dont use conditioner...and my hair is still like this!! Like you said, I can never hold a curl lol. Only with copious amounts of very strong hairspray. I’ll have to try the dry shampoo thing!! 🤔 I’ll let you know if I do!! Thanks again for your reply, I appreciate it. ☺️
Dunno if this will help, but I'm guessing I have a similar hair type to you. Mine does not held curl at all. Last time I tried a curling technique though, I did some reading, and I tried a suggestion to skip out on conditioner in the shower, and I actually managed to get really intense curls. Just like skin types, there are hair types and from what I understand, moisture levels ties into that. Very very curly hair is dry, which is why if you watch a hair care video from someone of African descent, or from someone with a lot of frizz, a lot of the advice, and suggested product comes down to adding moisture back in. Very fine, straight, silky hair like ours naturally has more moisture in it.
With fine, thin, straight hair, if we want it to hold shape, we need to give it extra grit and texture, basically. Skipping conditioner works, but obviously you'll only want to do that occasionally. I've heard mousse can help (hasn't done much for me, historically), and I've heard that spray-in dry shampoo also helps (though I have not tried this one myself. I'd like to, though!)
As for teasing, I typically manage to do it okay with a fine-tooth comb. Dunno if that makes a difference, compared to using a brush or something.
I hope this helps, and if you try the dry shampoo, let me know how it goes!
I just tried this. It was an epic fail. I think it's all about having just the right hair length, texture, and thickness. I can't even get a ponytail holder with bobby pins to go all the way around! Looks nice on her, though.
Ponytails get uncomfortable and slip out of place all day. This has clips and Bobby pins and teasing, it would get uncomfortable so much faster and you couldn’t redo it easily. How about we just be okay with how normal ponytails look instead of wanting them to look like actual cartoon pony butts?
Pony tails are so boring and typically worn by equally boring Millennial feminist types. They look particularly bad on professional types eg lawyers. A pony tail should only be seen on a girl of about age 5, if mum had no time to braid her long hair, but a smart mum would keep her kids'hajr cut very short, to save time and hassles each morning getting ready for kids'school and her own job, if she must have a job at all. If I go to a lawyer, any gender, or similar professional wearing a pony tail, I automatically assume they are either politically correct if female ie good cause to not use them but find better. Or, if male, I won't have much confidence in their capability eg a bureaucrat or accountant with messy or even tidy long hair hardly inspires confidence in their capacity for orderly thinking, tidiness etc necessary in such occupations. If you must have long hair as a female in such jobs, tie it back in a neat, tight, symmetrical style that attracts no attention when you move around, unlike the highly sexual looking female ponytail on feminist lawyers and similar professionals. Even in poorly paid jobs, it looks crappy and unprofessional eg the waitress whose sexy swinging pony tail ends up swishing into your meal, when it should be securely tied into a tight Bun, out of sight, ideally under the clean caps waitresses wore in an earlier era, with better standards. The only adults who may be OK with a pony tail swishing around are strippers in sex clubs or some kinds of music artists, though not all. Mainly troubled young men and innocent looking young performers singing/playing/dancing innocent, non sexualised songs etc. Ban the pony tail. In many European countries, it is regarded as a sign of extreme bad style and vulgarity for women to wear a pony tail, because it has certain connotations eg what comes out from under the horse's tail? Shit. And what do people do on horses? 'Ride' them. So the pony tail is considered to be sexual and obscene and no self respecting woman would be seen wearing this style. If she values her image and reputation eg to get/keep a job or a man etc. It's a definite No No and, if you are a tourist innocently sporting one, along with certain other styles and behaviours of Western feminist modern women types, you are actually signalling that you are pretty 'easy' and inviting 'holiday experiences'. Like being raped, abducted, even murdered, especially if travelling alone or with other raucous women out for a good time abroad, playing up sexually etc because nobody back home need know what they did with who and how, where why. Well, not until the HIV, STD and other disease test results come bavk to remind you and also let others know, via information technology privacy failures and deliberate breaches.
My hair is thick and down to my ass. I have the hardest time trying to make my hair look like it has volume cuz it’s so heavy. 5 mins seems like a long time (for me). Thx for the vid. I will try. Wish me luck. 🙏😘❤️
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
