When looking for beauty inspiration, we turn to Pinterest. There's no shortage of inspiration, from makeup looks to nail art designs and, of course, Pinterest hairstyles. Speaking of which, it’s safe to say trendy hairstyles have become synonymous with Pinterest hair. Because of this, you’re probably guilty of spending way too long scrolling through the rabbit hole that is Pinterest (we know we are!), and as fun as it can be, it’s not the most efficient way to spend your time. To make your life easier and save you a few hours of scrolling, we’ve compiled a list of 22 long and short Pinterest hair looks you need to try. You can even pair them with a Pinterest hair color for a seriously trendsetting ‘do. Keep reading to get the scoop—Pinterest-worthy strands ahead!
As far as Pinterest braids go, one look we keep seeing pop up is a double Dutch braided ponytail. And no, this is not just your traditional double Dutch braid! The style involves creating a Dutch braid on either side of your head, weaving the hair to the nape of your neck. Then, each braid is secured with a clear elastic, and the remaining hair is left loose to create two traditional pigtails. We love the contrast in texture!
In case you haven’t heard, space buns have gone from primarily being a festival hairstyle to taking over your Pinterest feed as a trendy spring and summer look. The upgraded version involves parting your hair from ear-to-ear and twisting the top half into half-up space buns. To complete the look, add some loose waves with a wide-barrel curling iron and spritz with the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray.
Another Pinterest braid hairstyle you’ve likely come across? The accent braid ponytail! What’s great about this style is that it’s super easy to recreate—after all, it only requires one small tweak to your traditional pony. Create a one-inch section of hair where you’d like your braid to be, then weave a three-strand plait that reaches to where you want the base of your ponytail to be. Without letting go of your braid, gather all of your hair into a messy ponytail, and secure with a clear elastic. So simple and so cute!
It’s safe to say that half-up hairstyles are a big hit on Pinterest. To style this half-up messy bun, part your hair from ear-to-ear to create a top and bottom section of hair. Then, twist the top section of hair into a messy bun, and secure with bobby pins. To play up the messy feel of this hairstyle, add some carefree texture to the bottom half of your hair with a hair pomade, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty.
This intricate long hairstyle is nothing new, but we happen to think that Pinterest had a major impact on just how popular it is. This is especially true if you search for Pinterest wedding hairstyles—there are so many gorgeous photos of cascading curls paired with a waterfall braid and bohemian accessories! For a step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve it at home, here’s How to Do a Beautiful Waterfall Braid.
In search of Pinterest hairstyles that work with both short and long hair? The dino braid is just what you’re searching for. To begin, create a section of hair at the crown of your head, using the arches of your brows as guidelines for the width. Then, create a Dutch braid that goes toward the back of your head and stops at the end of your crown. Secure with a hair elastic to create a mini party pony, and let the rest of your long hair free!
One of the simplest Pinterest hair looks there is, a low messy bun is the perfect balance between casual and elegant. You can wear this to run errands or dress it up with the help of accessories like flower hair clips for a romantic updo. You can also take your style from simple to seriously eye-catching with your hair color. For a Pinterest hair color-meets-hairstyle strend, try a low messy bun with underlights. If you can’t commit, L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color will serve you well, allowing you to play with color, then wash it out whenever you wish.
Remember those double Dutch braids we talked about earlier? Well, if you were a fan, we have a feeling you’ll enjoy this Pinterest hairstyle as well. Part your hair down the middle and weave two Dutch braids, stopping at the nape of your neck. Secure with a clear elastic. Twist the length of each Dutch braid into a low bun and secure with bobby pins.
It’s safe to say that Pinterest users are a big fan of messy, undone hairstyles, and this half-up ponytail is no exception! Since only a portion of your hair needs to have enough length to be pulled up, this style also makes for one of the best short Pinterest hairstyles. Divide your hair into even top and bottom sections. Then, gather the top section into a mini ponytail at the back of your crown—don’t worry if there are some bumps in the mix, this will add to the messy look! Secure with a scrunchie for a ‘90s twist. Lastly, pull a few face-framing strands loose to finish the messy vibe.
This hairstyle is all about the accessories. First, sweep your strands into an effortless messy ponytail. Then, tie a ribbon around the base of your ponytail for a girly touch. Mist hairspray over your ‘do to complete the look.
Are you a big fan of updos? Love Pinterest braids? Then you’re bound to be just as obsessed as we are with the crown braid updo that's been circulating Pinterest. The look involves weaving your length into a braid that goes around the entirety of your head, with not a strand hanging loose. For step-by-step instructions, here’s How to Create a Beautiful Crown Braid.
We would bet on the fact that half-up ‘dos and Pinterest braids won’t be going anywhere any time soon, so why not combine the two? For this half-up hairstyle, part your hair from ear-to-ear to create a top and bottom section. Then, weave the top section into a fishtail braid that falls down the back of your head. Secure with a clear elastic. To add some texture, place a few loose curls throughout the bottom half of your hair.
This hairstyle might remind you of a look you used to wear when you were a child, but with an upgraded twist (or should we say braid?). Part your hair down the middle, then from ear-to-ear to create a top and bottom section of hair. Clip the bottom half out of the way. Working with one side of the top section of hair, weave a Dutch braid until you reach the back of your crown. Secure with a clear elastic and gently tug at either side of the base to make the mini pigtail you just created appear more voluminous. Repeat on the other side. Let the bottom half of your hair down and show off your fun, trendy ‘do!
As far as Pinterest braids go, the Dutch braid seems to be the most prominent—and we’re not complaining! To create a double Dutch braid bun, first part your hair down the middle and weave two Dutch braids on either side of your head. Then, twist each braid into a low bun. Secure with a hair elastic and bobby pins as needed.
The half-up ponytail—aka, the party pony—deserves two spots on this list: the messy version (which we mentioned earlier) and the classic version. The classic variation is very easy to recreate. First, create a top and bottom section of hair. Then, smooth the top section into a high ponytail, taking care that there are no bumps or knots. Secure with an elastic. For an added touch, tie a ribbon around your pony!
If you’re currently rocking twist braids, we have the perfect Pinterest hair look for you! All you need to do is twist the length of your braids into a high, voluminous bun at the top of your head. Secure with a hair elastic and bobby pins. This high bun will be full of texture thanks to your twisted braids!
We’re still seeing traditional space buns circulating our Pinterest feeds, with space buns on natural hair, in particular, making many appearances. To embrace your texture, apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp strands, then let your hair air dry. Once your mane is dry, part it down the middle and twist each half into a high bun at the top of your head. Secure with bobby pins. These textured, curly space buns are especially cute for summer!
This simple, classic half-up hairstyle has been trending for years and continues to rank among the most beautiful Pinterest hairstyles. Gather a two-inch section of hair from the front of your head and twist it toward the back, adding more hair as you go. When you reach the center of the back of your head, secure with bobby pins. Repeat on the other side—that’s it!
Looking for another take on the messy bun? Instead of throwing your hair into a bun without thinking about it, this version requires a bit more finesse. First, gather your strands at the top of your head as if you were to create a high ponytail. Then, twist your length into a bun and secure with bobby pins—remember, messy is okay here! Pull a few face-framing strands loose to enhance the carefree, romantic vibe. Add some pearl bobby pins throughout the bun for a glamourous accent.
If you have long hair, this one’s for you! Instead of creating a classic three-strand braid, switch things up by adding a fourth strand of hair into the mix. We promise this hairstyle is easier to create than it looks and will be sure to leave your friends in awe at how you did it! For a step-by-step tutorial, here’s How to Do a 4-Strand Braid.
We aren’t done with natural hairstyles just yet. Natural texture pairs beautifully with a messy bun, which is why it should come as no surprise that a low messy bun on natural hair is trending on Pinterest. Simply twist your strands into a low bun and secure with bobby pins, then pull a few face-framing strands loose and carefully fluff your hair for the perfect undone look.
You can also top off your look with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray for a trendy Pinterest hair color that creates dimension to draw attention to your texture.
Last but not least, we have one more Pinterest look worth mentioning: the side accent braid. Take a two-inch section of hair at the front of one side of your hair. Then, create a French braid going back so that the braid ends just behind your ear. Secure with bobby pins and fluff the braid to your liking.
