5 hair tutorial Youtube channels you need to subscribe to
It's great to have a go-to hair look to fall back on, be it a quick straighten or a Katniss Everdeen-style side braid. But there are plenty of special occasions and even regular days where you want to shake things up. Here are some great hair tutorial Youtube channels that will show you how to do a wide variety of insta-worthy styles.
Cute Girls Hairstyles
CGH is the hair tutorial channel on Youtube. Started in 2009 by mom Mindy McKnight, the channel has over five million subs, and for good reason. The easy-to-do braid tutorials, as well as the numerous family-vlog channels spawned from CGH (like Brooklyn & Bailey!) have helped girls and moms everywhere look their best. One of the braids from their channel was even used in the Catching Fire film!
This UK-based channel is almost to half a million subs, and deserve many more. Their innovative updos are perfect for girls of all ages, and showcase a great variety of styles perfect for beginners. A lot of their tutorials require elastics, so make sure to pick some up before you dive in to one of their vids.
This channel is all about recreating hair + makeup looks from your fave celebs and fictional characters. And Jackie is really good at it! I had to look twice at her Nutcracker and the Four Realms recreations to make sure it wasn't really Mackenzie Foy. She also uses more heat styling tools than CGH and SweetHearts—great if that's more your thing.
Confessions of a Hairstylist
Looking for something a little edgier? Professional hairstylist Jenny Strebe has faux-hawks, punk ponys, and grunge-inspired looks to bring out your inner emo. She worked at British salon chain Toni & Guy for six years before opening up her own studio. Time is no issue with her tutorials—she has a series of vids that take just one minute!
Rounding out our list is Abby Smith, a mom and hairstylist extraordinaire. Her "Twist Me Pretty" series is amaze, and her bubbly personality shines through in all her vids. Her tutorials can go a little fast, but due to their simplicity, a watch or two is enough to have you braiding like a pro. Her channel is a great resource for those with medium-length hair.
