Step-by-Step Instructions for Cute & Different Hairstyles

If you are tired of your hairstyle and want to try something different, you can choose from many cute, quirky styles. Two of which that you don't see every day are the side-twisted ponytail or bun and the 1950's casual-chic curls. Both of these styles are versatile for different hair lengths. If your hair is long enough to pull into a ponytail or a bun, then you can wear these hairstyles.

Things You'll Need

  • Hair brush
  • Spray bottle
  • Hair ties
  • Hairspray
  • Rat tail comb
  • Hair clip
  • Curling iron
  • Bobby pins
  • Bandanna


    • 1

      Brush your hair into a side part, so that the parting line lines up with one of your eyes. Use a spray bottle to wet your hair with a fine mist if your hair is dry so it will be easier to work with.

    • 2

      Separate two small sections of hair from the thinner side of your part, starting from the hairline. These sections only need to be about a quarter of an inch thick or less. Twist the two pieces and begin incorporating new pieces that start from the hairline as you move down.

    • 3

      Add new sections as you move all the way down and past the bottom-center of your head. Use a clip to keep it in place so you can work on the other side. Repeat step two on the other side of your hair. When you get to where you stopped with the other side, remove the clip and make sure the hair doesn't unwind itself.

    • 4

      Secure the two sides of the twist together with a hair tie. Pull it through as a ponytail or roll it into a bun and secure with a hair tie. Apply hairspray over the whole style to keep it smooth and neat.

    Casual 1950's Style Curls

    • 5

      Part your hair with a rat tail comb so that you have a large round section on the top of your head and the rest of you have is down. Secure the top part out of the way with a clip.

    • 6

      Pull the rest of your hair into a ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Add hairspray to the sides of your head to keep your hair smooth.

    • 7

      Remove the clip from the top part of your hair and separate a third of it to curl. Curl small inch-wide sections of your hair with a half-inch or inch barrel curling iron. Curl the whole top section of your hair.

    • 8

      Spray your curls with hair spray to keep them neat and use bobby pins to secure them to the top of your head. Start from the back and move toward the front. Twist the curls slightly as you lay them down so they retain their shape. When you get to the front, pull your hair straight up, spray the base with some hairspray and pin the ends to your head so that the front forms a bump.

    • 9

      Fold a bandanna into a triangle, fold the corner in and then fold the bandanna length-wise again. Place the center of the bandanna under your pony tail or bun, wrap the ends up and tie them at the top of your head. You will still have a lot of curls showing out from under the bandanna.
