Since Halloween is right around the corner, for our hair tutorial this week we are sharing a fun unicorn hairstyle! This DIY unicorn horn could be used as a Halloween hairstyle, or for crazy hair day. Looking for a horn accessory to go with your "My Little Pony" or horse costume? Why not use your own hair?!
DIY Unicorn Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)
As mentioned in our video, you can make your "tail" sleek, or more voluminous. Curls, crimping, and teasing could add some extra texture if you are looking for more volume and lift. If you are wanting a colorful mane, tail, or horn, you could definitely add some temporary spray in hair color to go with your mystical creature look. As another fun option, if you would rather style a "mane" with your unicorn horn, you could make a series of messy buns, a pull-through braid, a french/dutch braid, curls, or faux hawk behind your horn instead of the ponytail.
In our video tutorial (above) we also show a great technique for wrapping hair around the top of your ponytail for a pretty every day look... when you aren't dressing up as a unicorn. Surprisingly enough though, recently we have actually seen a few unicorn hairstyles becoming sort of a "thing" in fashion magazines, tv shows, and around the internet. Maybe this will be the next big trend hahaha.
Supplies needed to recreate this look:
- 1 strong ponytail holder for the main ponytail. 1 medium size clear elastic. 1 temporary clip or hair tie to keep the hair sectioned while you are working.
- Several bobby pins. We used miniature bobby pins from Sally Beauty Supply (affiliate) which hold things tight extremely well.
- Small piece of card stock. (Approximately a 5 inch square.)
- Clear tape.
