4-Leaf Clover Hairstyle for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is this week and it’s time to have some fun! I love creating adorable hairstyles on Victoria for St.Patrick’s Day because it’s just a good time to be had and show your Irish spirit. Here’s a cute 4-leaf clover hairstyle for you to try.

4-Leaf Clover Hairstyle for St. Patrick’s Day

4-leaf clover hairstyle St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day hairstyles can be just about anything if you add some green ribbon or green glitter to the hair, but for me – I love going with a 4-leaf clover hairstyle or a shamrock hairstyle for St. Patrick’s Day. I feel like they really kick off the fun for a hairstyle.

When it comes to creating this particular hairstyle it really does help to have a topsy tail tool. I’ve actually never tried to create this hairstyle without one because it makes it seamless to do and to create. I’m all about making sure that I share as many hairstyles as possible with a topsy tail tool because if you have one, you want to use it.

For this 4-leaf clover hairstyle, also make sure you have green ribbon on hand, too. This will give it that polished and finished look! I will share below where you can affordably find ribbon and the topsy tail tool – both being very inexpensive.

1. Start with a ponytail in the hair.
2. Take your topsy tail took and insert on the side. Grab a smaller section of hair and loop through to pull it. Here’s the catch. Don’t pull all the way through, I hold my finger there so it will create a little loop that will be the start of the clover.
3. Repeat on the other side. Try to make them exactly the same size.
4. Take the topsy tail and insert in the middle of the ponytail. Take a larger section of hair and loop it through. Again, don’t pull all the way. You want to create a bigger loop on the top for a clover.
5. Take a hair elastic and gather the tail together. Add the elastic in, but allow for a little room as to create the bottom of the 4-leaf clover.
6. I add a green ribbon to top it off!

I just love this St. Patrick’s Day hairdo. I’ve been doing this one on Victoria since she was in kindergarten (she’s in 5th grade now). I think it’s creative, fun, and super cute to wear. She always gets compliments when I do this hairstyle.

Hair Products To Use for this Hairstyle

Here are the exact hair products I used to create this 4-leaf clover hairstyle.

Hair Elastics

These are the Teenitor hair elastics I’ve been using lately. I was recommended to use them and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Victoria’s hair is on the thicker side, so I need to make sure I have hair elastics that will hold the hair and be extra durable. I also want to make sure the hair elastics won’t damage or crease the hair.

best hair elastics

  • Strong and stretchy: The elastics are not so thin that they break when you try to stretch, but they are not so thick that you can’t stretch them properly. They have stayed in very fine, soft hair through days of gardening. Also, they slide off the braids when grabbed and pull off clean. No rolling and catching the hair to make knots.
  • Great deal: This is a great deal on 2000 pieces clear rubber elastic hair bands, enough for braiding different hairstyles. You can keep a couple dozen in your purse, another couple dozen in your gym bag, some in your car…you get the idea. Any time you realize you need a hair tie, you’ll have a stash.

The best part is that you get 2000 for under $7!

Hair Styling Cream

It’s the one question I get asked the most lately, and I love it. It’s important to make sure you prep the hair before you create a hairstyle. I love to use hair styling cream because I know it will help to keep the hair smooth and shiny.

I prefer using Dae Hair Styling Cream.
