Video Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkcYY6p1CSQ

Step 1: Gather all of your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic.

Step 2: Separate the hair in the ponytail into 2 even sections: a top and a bottom section.

Step 3: Take the top section and put another elastic about an inch down the ponytail (top section only, leave bottom section alone for now)

Step 4: Take the 1 inch space in between the ponytail elastic and the elastic we just put on, and put your fingers through the middle to create space.

Step 5: Pull all of the bottom section through the hole we just made.

Step 6: Now the bottom has become the top, so go about an inch down on just the new top section and put an elastic on.

Step 7: Make a hole in the new space, and pull the new bottom through the top so that they switch places and create a “braid” looking stitch.

Step 8: Continue all the way down your head until you reach the bottom, but leave about and inch and a half of space. Tie off with an elastic and if you want to be festive, tie it with an american flag bandana!

Step 9: The next step is optional, but it makes it look way better. Pancake it out by pulling on both sides of each stitch a little bit to flatten it out and make it looser. Now you’re done!

Hairstyle #2: (Lei’s Hairstyle)

Beachy Waves


For straight hair:

  1. Start off with freshly washed hair that you’ve let air dry, and apply a texturizing spray.
  2. Using a medium sized curling iron, take 2-inch sections of hair and wrap it around the barrel, instead of curling up the wand. Take messy sections because you don’t want to make it look too perfect!
  3. After the curls cool, finger comb and spritz in more texturizing spray or hairspray if needed.

For wavy hair:

  1. Start with day -old locks for a little extra texture.
  2. If you want get tousled waves fresh out of the shower, apply a curl cream, put your hair in a loose bun, let it dry, then touch up any flat sections with a large barrel curling iron.
  3. Flip your head upside down, spray all over with a texturizing spray, and lightly scrunch the curls with your hands.

For curly hair:

  1. Blow out your hair with a round brush to straighten your hair a bit before you add the waves. Apply an anti-frizz serum before your blow dryer, so summer humidity won’t ruin your look.
  2. Then, use a medium sized curling iron to create loose waves.
  3. Add a surf spray for texture.

Makeup Look #1: (Tay’s Makeup)

  1. Start by applying a white eyeshadow to your whole eyelid.
  2. You are gonna divide your eye into 3 sections, and on the outer 1/3 of your eyelid you are gonna put a blue eyeshadow.
  3. On the middle 1/3, you will keep it white.
  4. On the inner 1/3, you will use red.
  5. Move the blue a little into your crease to help the colors blend, and soften the lines a little bit with a blending brush.
  6. Add a thick black wing using black liquid eyeliner to your lash line, and add a thick layer of clear sparkly eyeliner just above it.
  7. Also take the clear sparkly eyeliner, and apply it to your lower lash line.
  8. Apply your craziest most volumizing mascara to your top lashes.
  9. Next, add a light pink blush and highlight the tops of your cheekbones with your favorite highlighter.
  10. Finish with red lips and you’re done!

Makeup Look #2: (Lei’s Makeup)

  1. Start by applying a white eyeshadow to your whole eyelid.
  2. Cover your eyelid with silver eyeshadow.
  3. Apply blue shadow to the outer corner of your eyelid and crease, blending as you go.
  4. Apply more shadow to your crease, this time with a blue a shade darker than you just did and blend.
  5. Apply a sparkly white shadow to your inner corner.
  6. Apply black liquid eyeliner and flick it out at the end.
  7. Go over that with sparkly gold eyeliner.
  8. Apply more black eyeliner to your bottom lashline, finishing halfway across.
  9. Apply a lot of mascara on your top lashes.
  10. Apply  a peachy blush to your apples of your cheeks blending up.
  11. Apply a bronzer to your cheekbones.
  12. Use blue, red and white face paint to paint little stars between your eyes and cheeks. If you don’t have face paint, you can use very pigmented eyeshadow.
  13. Apply a red lip liner and a red liquid lipstick. I love the Kylie Lip Kit in Mary Jo K.
