Beans is dressing up as a cheerleader this Halloween, so we are needing to decide on how to do her hair. Option number one is of course just pulling it back into pony-tail, but I like to think we could do so much more than just a boring pony-tail. These are 10 of our other options for more than just a regular pony tail.
Option number one:This is our ribbon braid down one side of the head. I could incorporate the colors of her cheerleader uniform into this. If I wanted to do the big bouncy curls that would be very pretty too. You can find the braid tutorial at this link.
I don't have a link to this pony tail, but it is just a knot in the front to control those forever growing out bangs we deal with at our house and a knot in the pony tail section. We use this hair style a lot around here. It is a very classic pony tail option. Very pretty.
Single twists into a pony tail. Talk about flare! This one is a lot of the extra energy any pony tail needs to really bounce. I love this option. You can find the link here to this tutorial.
I don't have a link for this one either. It is just braids that start in the front section and finish in the pony tail. It keeps the bang section out of our way and allows the pony tail to be nice and tight. Plus it gives it a little more of a style than just pulling it back.
This one's tutorial can be found here. This one can really have a lot of color too it too, so if that is the look you are going for this one is great for color being added into the style.
This is really pretty and I could add a really flashy bow in the right colors instead of a flower for Beans Cheerleader costume. I wouldn't have to use a flower if I didn't want too. This tutorial can be found here.
I just love the knot in the ponytail look. It is so simple and yet adds so much to this style. This tutorial is here.
The HIGH top ponytail. Go here for the how too. This one has a lot of bounce too it and it really high on top of the head. And don't get me started on that great Boston bow-- Love it!
The hour glass (tutorial here) is a great one too. Quick and easy and fabulous! You can't go wrong with a look like this.
The waterfall headband pulled into a ponytail. Of course its simple looking, but is is just beautiful. Tutorial is here.
This is just ten of the hundreds of options that are out there to make a ponytail more than just a pony tail. I am still not sure which one Beans will choose for her cheerleader costume, but I am just glad to know she has more options than just a simple ponytail-- we like flare around here. Its just more fun that way.
