Simple DIY Back to School Hairstyles | Avalanche Salon and Spa Collegeville

Some essential back to school preparations include getting new clothes, a notebook, pens and more. This year, get ready for another school year by learning about the best hairstyles around!

  1. Side braid with low ponytail

This is a cute idea for when you want to keep your hair out of your face, but you don’t necessarily want to put it up. Start with a loose French braid on one side of your hair. Then, just pull the rest of your hair back into a low ponytail and tie with an elastic. Finally, wrap the end of the braid around the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. You can even curl the ends of the loose ponytail if you want for a more fun, bouncy look!


  1. Space buns

With this look, your friends will think you’re out of this world! Simply part your hair down the center and pull your hair up into two ponytails. You can even leave some strands out in the front to frame your face. Then, twist your hair in the ponytail using your finger and wrap it around into a bun. Secure with a hair elastic or a bobby pin and repeat with the other ponytail.


  1. Pigtail Dutch braids

Go for an extremely cute look with pigtail Dutch braids. Part your hair down the center and Dutch braid each side. Tie them with an elastic when you are finished. Be sure to leave some hair unbraided for a cute pigtail look at the bottom!


  1. Wrap around ponytail

This ponytail will give you an edge and have you feeling confident as ever walking into the new school year. Just pull your hair into a high ponytail, separate a strand of hair from the rest, and wrap it around the hair elastic. Lastly secure with a bobby pin and you’re all finished!


  1. Loose, curly ponytail

This hairstyle is good for a quick but trendy look. If you are running late or just want a casual “not trying too hard” look, pull your hair back into a loose ponytail and curl the ends of the ponytail—it’s that simple. Add a fun scrunchie or your favorite headband to make the look your own!
