Learn how to do the Willow Smith "Whip My Hair" dance in this Howcast hip-hop dance video for kids with Jeff Cowans.


What's up, everybody? Jeff Cowans. The ladies are going to show you how to do "whip my hair". You've heard the song, you've seen the video, you've seen the dance, now let's try it. What they're going to do is they're going to turn to their right side and they're going to whip their hair twice. Basically, they're just going like this, one and two, other side, three, and four, five and six, seven and eight.

You can do whatever you want with your hands. So you can go one and two move, three and four move, five and six, seven and eight, but that's what it looks like, basically. So watch them do it. Five, six, seven, eight, they're going one and two, switch, three and four, switch, five and six, switch, seven and eight. That's what it looks like. So after you do that, you do a jump. You jump your feet together on one and let's say you push your hair out of your face.

You're going to go jump, push on the right, then the left, push, then you do it one more time. Jump, push, and then you're going to do a step pivot. You step with the right and pivot your body to the left. And you should be facing your left side. We'll do that part again. You're going to go jump hit, jump hit, jump hit, step, pivot. It looks like this. Jump, hit, jump, hit, jump, hit, step, pivot. Let's put it together. Everything starts on the right side first on one. Six, seven, eight, you go one and two, three and four, five, six, seven right side, you go right and hit, left and hit, right and hit, step, pivot. You guys got it?

Now there's one more part left, and this is the part that goes perfectly with the song because this is the part where you're really whipping your hair. So you're going to bring your hair around in a circle to the left side, your left, my right, and you're going to use your foot to come around. All right? Let's give it a try. Five, six, seven, circle, you're going one, two, three, four. There you go, that's what it looks like.

We're going to take it from the top. Five, six, seven, eight, they go one, two, switch three, four, five, six, seven right side, they go right and hit, left and hit, right and hit, step, pivot, go one, two, three, four. You can finish it off at the end however you want when you come up and get your hair out of your face. Two, four, six, go one two, three four, five six, seven eight. Two, three, four, six, and eight.
