Belle Hairstyle From Disney's Beauty and The Beast! (Halloween)

Disney Princess Belle Hairstyle
So, here's the look we're going for..........

It's Belle, fom Beauty and The Beast. (If you have a little girl, I'm sure you already knew that.) The style we are trying to recreate here is the hairdo from the ballroom where she's wearing the yellow dress.

Here's what you'll need: Some little claw clips, 2 elastics, a dollar store bracelet, and an old nylon knee sock. (Yes, I know it's weird.)
Start by making a pony, leaving out a section in the front (parted on the side or middle, whatever you prefer.) Do an upside down pull through in the pony. (If you don't know how to do a pull through, look under my "quick search labels" for "videos." You'll find an instructional video there!)
Now take the sections you left out, twist them and bring them together with an elastic under the pony.
Here's where the nylon comes in. Roll it up and position it underneath the pony. This is how I got the volume in the bun thingy. Maybe if your daughter's hair is thick enough you won't have to do this.
Bring the hair from the pony over the nylon and place the dollar store bracelet around it.
Add a few claw clips to keep the dollar store bracelet in place.


At this point, if it really was Halloween, I would dry and curl the pony. But, she's going to bed in about 10 minutes and this is just a practice run. So, I'm not doing that!You may be wondering why if she's Belle, her dress is pink and not yellow. Well, the princess wanted to be a "Pink Belle." (She really loves pink.) And, fine by me! This generic pink dress was cheaper and easier to find than the Disney Yellow Ballroom Belle Dress. :) Our little "Princess Belle" got her hair cut recently, but still wanted to wear a Beauty and the Beast Hair style! So, we modified our original priness style just a tad. Here's our attempt at a Belle hairstyle for short hair.......

I have been racking my brain for weeks trying to figure out how to do a Belle hairstyle! I really love how this this Belle hairdo turned out. I can't wait to try it again on Halloween!!

  2. I am so happy she wants to be Belle! Belle has always been my favorite, but for some weird reason I can't convince any of the nieces that she's the best!

    This hairstyle is so cute. When I was little I would ALWAYS try to do my hair like Belle. Now that I am all grown up, I finally have all the answers. :o)

    Thanks for the great post. Hopefully I can convince one of my little nieces to be Belle just so I can try this style out!

  3. How clever!! It's too bad that my dd's are not going to be princesses this year. They have been every other year, and so decided to do something different this year. I will have to remember this for the future!

  4. SO cute! But yours is much smoother and more professional looking. I LOVE the bracelet idea. I racked my brain for ages trying to figure that one out. I never could so I just went with a ribbon. Sigh. Absolutely brilliant!

  7. There is a different way to do Belle hair as well, if your daughter has thick, long hair. It's how I do mine (yes mine, as I have to daughters of my own and my little sis is several thousand miles away). Take the top half of the hair in a pony. Put it into a nice little bun, either a donut bun or a ballerina bun, but leave the ends hanging down the back, secure with an elastic, over the bun so the ends are coming out from underneath the elastic. Now you can either make it a yellow elastic for Belle or tie a yellow ribbon around the bun.

  22. Thanks for the help on the Belle hairstyle. My daughter's Girl Scout troop is hosting a Princess Tea for the younger Girl Scouts. My daughter has to be Belle. I also own a children's theater group. I will definately reccomend your blog when parents need help doing their child's hair. Thanks!

  23. I'm so doing this with my hair when I see Beauty and the Beast 3D! :D Thanks so much!

  24. Another option for holding the bracelet in would be the spiral pins goody has for holding bun hair styles. This would work for older girls who have outgrown the colorful clips (although I find them fantastic). I love the tutorials posted here.
