Hey guys! As part of our "Halloween hairstyles series" this month, we wanted to add another style to our Disney Princess Hairstyles collection. We decided on a beautiful Cinderella inspired updo. Anyone planning on dressing up as Cinderella for Halloween this year?
Also, this hairstyle doesn't have to be just for Halloween. I think this would make a lovely and elegant style for a flower girl, bride, Prom, Homecoming, church, etc.
I'm assuming pretty much everyone has watched Cinderella at some point, right? You might remember she was wearing a style similar to this at the ball (while wearing the gorgeous blue ball gown.) Of course, this is not an exact replica of Cinderella's hairstyle (as is the case with most cartoon inspired hair) but rather our interpretation of a Cinderella bun.
There are many different ways you could go about creating this style and we actually tried a few different techniques before we settled on this one. We mostly just wanted to keep this tutorial easy, simple, and quick for everyone. ;) The technique we used in our video tutorial below should work with long hair, medium hair, and maybe even hair on the shorter side. If you are working with extremely thick hair, you may want to split the ponytail up into a few different sections before you roll her hair up, instead of creating one big roll like we did.
In hindsight, if I were to create this style again, I would place the ponytail up a little higher on her head for a more authentic look... keep that in mind if you give this one a try. Also, Cinderella has bangs, and "our princess" does not. So, if you have bangs, all the better for this style! You can style them in front of the headband just like Cinderella.
Supplies needed to recreate this look:
- 3 medium size elastics
- Several bobby pins
- Topsy tail (optional)
- Blue headband or ribbon
- Finishing hair spray, pomade, or gel
