Another star hairstyle for the 4th of July!
Our hair tutorial this week features a fun star design accent on one side of her head, combined with an edgy pull through braid faux hawk ponytail look using the rest of her hair.
Over the years we have shared many star hairstyles on this blog for the 4th of July. Most of these styles would be adorable for younger girls… “star pigtails” anyone? But today we wanted to show a star hairstyle that will hopefully work for teenagers too! I think this trendy look would be so cute for a barbecue, fireworks, watching a parade, or hanging out with friends and family.
4th Of July Hairstyle, Elastic Star And Pull Through Braid Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)
As mentioned in our video, you can end the pull through braid at the base of her neck for a ponytail look like we did. Or, you can continue the braid all the way down to the ends of her hair if you prefer. Stretching out the edges of your braid will make this style very voluminous and beautiful. I would also recommend tugging slightly on the bangs area for more volume and style in the front (if you like the popular pompadour look.)
Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- Small elastics to create the star. We used Goody Ouchless Elastics (affiliate.)
- Medium size elastics for the pull through braid.
- Pomade, gel, hair wax, or other product to help control flyaways.
If you are a teen or tween, tell us in the comments: Would you wear this hairstyle on the fourth of July?
