DIY Summer Hair

I love summer. LOVE summer. I love warm weather, swimming pools, fresh air, picnics, vacations, fireflies….I could go on forever. I also LOVE summer hair. It is the perfect time to put away the hair dryer, put your hair up and stay cool. You don’t have to compromise fashion for comfort. I have some great DIY summer hair ideas using Goody Hair accessories. A simple hair accessory can make a big difference!

1-Part hair in the middle and make a ponytail on each side.
2-Braid to the end and band the ends with elastic.
3-Pin the braids to cross over using bobby pins.
4-Add a Goody Hair accessories to each side.


2) The “Frozen” Inspired Braid. (Gretchen Goldsmith)

This braid was inspired by Disney’s popular movie “Frozen.” Instead of the twist, I used an inverted french braid. Using the braid seems to keep the hairdo more secure. Especially for younger girls.

1-Part hair on the side.
2-Start making an inverted french braid on the fuller side.
3-Continue to pull hair into the braid while keeping braid low to the nape of the neck.
4-When you come right below the ear, stop the braid and band hair into a pony tail.
5-Twist the remaining hair into a bun and pin with bobby pins.
6-Add a Goody Hair accessory.



3) Headbands (Carissa Stelter, Tonya Taylor)

Goody has a wide variety of headbands. Stretchy bands for athletic hair, silky bands for a dressier look, lacy bands, classic bands…etc. You can easily add headbands to short hair to dress it up or long hair. With longer hair you can add a headband to braids, ponytails, french twists, etc.



4) The “donut” bun (Mindy Boitnott)

I love the mesh donuts. They are the easiest way to create a full bun. This mesh bun is not from Goody, but the hair accessory and bobby pins are.

1-create a high pony tail with a goody hair band.
2-pull mesh bun to the base of the pony tail
3-find center of ponytail and then spread hair over the bun.
4-secure hair with Goody bobby pins


5) Double Bun (Michelle Hutchens)

Super easy, and super pretty!

1-Create two ponytails. One on top of the other.
2-Twist bottom ponytail first into a bun and then secure it using Goody bobby pins.
3-Twist the top ponytail into a bun and again, secure it using bobby pins

4-Add Goody hair accessory.


6) Side bun using Goody “Spin Pin”

I was a skeptic about this one because my daughter and I both have thick hair. It often takes quite a few hairpins to create a bun. This really works-and is much more comfortable then bobby pins.

1-Pull hair into a side ponytail and use a hair band to hold it in place.

2-wrap hair into bun

3- Twist the pins into hair on opposite sides. Avoid letting the pins touch each other

4) Add Goody hair accessory.
