Criss-Cross Half 'Do

(I'm not too proud of this tutorial. My husband did an excellent job taking the pictures, but right now, I don't have any good photo editing programs, so we've been using my phone. How sad is that? I have some photo editing programs on my desktop computer, but my desktop is so slow. One day, it'll look a lot better! Until then, try to enjoy!)

This is one of the easiest hairstyles. One thing I love about this is that you can do the same style, but style it differently each time. I only did three strands of hair, but you can do however many you want, however thick you want it! I took some hair and brought it to the opposite side of my head and pinned it. Then, I took some hair (from the side I had just pinned the other hair) and brought it to the opposite side and pinned it. The second picture on the left row is me pinning the second strand of hair. (I tried to lay the hair in a position so that it would hide the bobby pins.) You can do it however many times you would like to! It's fun and SO easy!

(Side note: I don't like my hair to be "perfect". I like the messier hairstyles, if you couldn't tell!)


  1. This is lovely! I only see 2 strands of hair? Are there 3?

  2. Kristen, yes! I did the first one, and then the second one, and then I did one more to hide the bobby pins. It is kind of hidden under the second strand!

  3. ah ha, I see now. I did this last night for our Valentine's date, and it turned out really nice, I think! thank you!
