5 DIY Sporty Hairstyles | How To Do Your Own Hair | Marissa and Brookie


– Hey, guys, it’s Marissa. And today I’m gonna be
showing you guys five different sporty hairstyles
that you can do on yourself. I’m 14 years old and I
have learned to do my hair in like the fifth grade or something. So, Brookie and I both play soccer and we have two younger sisters that are going to start playing soccer, so we are a very sporty family and we’re always looking
for ways to fix our hair so that our hair isn’t in our face, especially on a windy or rainy day and you’re running around. You don’t want it to, like,
in your eyes or anything. So, here are five quick
and easy hairstyles that you can do on yourself. (fun rhythmic music) To start this first
hairstyle, I’m going to start by parting my hair to the
side and then about two inches from the start of my hairline, going to part it all
the way down to my ear. And while I’m braiding,
I like to tie off my hair in the back just so it’s out of my way. After I have made my
part, I’m going to start by taking a small section from
about the front of my part and starting a dutch braid. To start a dutch braid, divide
your hair into three sections then cross the left outside
piece under the middle piece, then the right outside piece
under the middle piece. Then once you’ve done that,
add hair to the outside section and continue braiding until
about the top of your ear, if that makes sense, I don’t know guys. There are plenty of other YouTube videos that explain how to dutch braid. (simple rhythmic music) Just continue braiding and
once you get to about the ear, I like to start a lace braid. And if you don’t know
what a lace braid is, it’s just adding hair
to the top or bottom. I’m adding it to just the
bottom so you don’t get a bump when you put it
back into a ponytail. (simple lighthearted music) Once I tied off my braid,
I like to take my hair out, and yes, it is very poofy and frizzy. And I like to smooth it out
so that there are no bumps in the ponytail, with a comb or a brush, then just add your
braid into your ponytail and you are pretty much done. Just take out your elastic from your braid and the struggle is real, it
kind of hurts a little bit, but after that, this is the
final look of the hairstyle. It’s a great way to keep
your hair out of your face. (lighthearted rhythmic music) To start this next hairstyle,
I’m going to just begin by parting my hair off to the side. Again, start by making
about a one inch part down to your ear, and we are
going to make two twists, so make sure there’s
room for a second one. Then just tie off your hair
and then start by taking a small section from the front, and you’re going to be
doing a French twist. Divide your hair into two sections, then just like the Dutch braid,
cross one under the other. I like to drop it, then
add hair, cross it over, drop it, add hair, cross it over. (fun energetic music) I decided to go until
about where my eyebrow met my hairline, and I
didn’t go all the way down to my ear because I
wanted my ponytail to be a little bit higher. (exciting soft music) Just tie it off and
then take out your hair, comb it out a little bit, and we’re going to start the next one. For this other twist, we’re
just going to be doing the same as the first one,
just behind the first twist so that’s it kind of
a double layer effect. (exciting rhythmic music) Then just finish off your twist. Then just twist them back up
and add them into a ponytail. (fun lighthearted music) Before I tie that up, I
like to take a bobby pin and pin down the loose
hair from the twist, just so that it doesn’t stick up. A lot of the times I get
these crazy bumps in my hair and bobby pins work great to fix that. There’s the final look. After that, I just took
out the elastics because I kind of forgot, but
this is a great hairstyle, again, for getting your
hair out of your face. And it’s still super cute. (fun rhythmic music) To start hairstyle number three, we are going to lose
the number part from our previous hairstyle. To begin this hairstyle, start
by taking a small section. I like to take it from about
the middle of my eyebrows. And we are going to start a french braid. A french braid is a lot
similar to a dutch braid, but all you are doing is
crossing the outside strands over instead of under the middle section. (simple piano music) To give this braid a mohawk look, I like to add the sections
in a fairly straight line. (fun rhythmic music) Just continue doing a
french braid until about the crown of your head,
or just until you like it. (simple rhythmic music) Just finish off braiding your hair, it doesn’t have to be
until the end because you’re gonna end up putting
it in a ponytail anyways. After that, just tie your
hair off into a ponytail. And there you have it, guys,
a mohawk braid ponytail. (fun rhythmic music) Four, numbero quatro hairstyle. We are going to start
by just putting our hair back into a ponytail. Our family has very thick
hair, so I need two elastics to hold my ponytail up. This is also a great hairstyle if you guys don’t like flyaways and
would like to use a headband. Just brush out the extra knots
that you didn’t get before. And we’re going to start the hairstyle. Start by dividing the hair in half, then take an elastic and
place it about two inches down from where the ponytail starts. (fun exciting music) Start by splitting the hair
in half with your fingers, then reaching through the hole and grabbing the bottom layer of
hair and pulling it through. I like to tighten up the bottom elastic, just so it’s extra secure. After that, grab another
elastic and tie it about two inches down from the first one, then do the same process
that we did before. Split your hair into two
sections, then pull the bottom hair through and tighten up the elastic. Then just repeat this process
until the end of your hair. (simple rhythmic music) I like to just bring it over my shoulder once it gets a little
too long for me to do. Even if you have thinner
hair at the bottom, just keep going and once
you get to about the end, tie it off with a bigger elastic
just so it’s extra secure. After I’m done, I like
to kind of pull it apart just so it’s extra full. (simple rhythmic music) Here is the final look,
I love to change up the color of bands just so
it’s kind of colorful and fun. To start hairstyle number
five, I like to do a middle part with this hairstyle. You can also do a side
part if you like it better. I like to brush it back,
then taking a small section from about the front of the hairline and we’re going to start another dutch braid. Again, for a dutch braid,
just divide the hair into three sections, then
cross the outside sections under the middle section and add hair, every time you cross an
outside section under. When I’m adding the hair,
I’m not doing a super big section because it kind
of depends on how big you want your braid to be. If you pick up bigger pieces, your braid will be a little bit bigger, and if you pick up smaller pieces, it will be a little bit smaller. So, it just depends on your preference. Then just continue braiding until about the end of your part. Once you have finished
with the first braid, do the exact same braid on the other side. I do mess up a couple
times, but that’s okay, it still looked good in the end. I don’t know about you guys,
but after I’m done braiding, my arms are very tired. Pull all of your hair back into a ponytail and then you’re done. If you guys like to wear
headbands when you run, I would recommend using Pre-Wrap, you can find this at
any sporting good store. It’s just a great way to
keep away the fly aways and it doesn’t slip off your head. And every other headband
that I’ve tried has, so this one is great. One thing I also like to
do is braid my ponytail. Having long and thick hair, when I run, my hair always whips me in
the eye and then I can’t see. So, I like to braid my ponytail
just so I can prevent that. Here is the final look. It is definitely one of my
favorite sporty hairstyles that I love to use everyday for soccer. Thanks for watching. Hope you guys enjoyed
these quick and easy sporty hairstyles that you
guys can do on yourself, DIY, you know. This will help keep the
fly aways out of your face while you’re playing
your game, and winning! (laughing) Bye!
