Tinker Bell Hair Tutorial

Tinkerbell hair tutorial

This Tinkerbell hair tutorial is inspired by the hairstyle worn on Disney's fairy Tinker Bell in the movie Peter Pan! A cute messy bun or "top knot" wrapped with ribbon and side swept bangs.  Of course, my daughter doesn't have bangs (as I'm sure many of you don't as well) so we made some "fake bangs" using her own hair!

Tinker Bell Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



We have always loved Disney hairstyles and Halloween hairstyles and could not wait to film this hair tutorial! We have loved watching Disney movies and think Tinker Bell would be such a fun character to dress up as for Halloween, or for your next trip to Disneyland, Disneyworld, or Disney birthday party. This hairstyle would look great with a Tinker Bell fairy costume!

Tinker bell hairstyle tutorial, how to make faux bangs

The method we used for creating the "faux fringe" or bangs could be used for every day hairstyles as well (this doesn't have to be just for Tinkerbell!)  It might be fun to change up your look and have bangs for the day.  I have seen this method used with a thick headband placed in front of the bun, which ends up making the bangs look really authentic and more natural!

Supplies we used to create this look:
  • 1 Hair tie
  •  Several bobby pins
  •  Flat Iron (affiliate)

Wonder Woman hairstyle tutorial! DIY Braided Headpiece, Halloween Hair

Wonder Woman hairstyle tutorial! How to make a WW headband using braids for Halloween.

You'll love this Wonder Woman hairstyle featuring a DIY headpiece made from your own hair! A perfect Halloween hairstyle to go with your Wonder Woman costume.  And the best part? You will not need to purchase or make a wonder woman headband or crown to complete your look. Our tutorial today shows how to create a wonder woman headband using 4 cornrow braids and an inexpensive red or gold star sticker.  This warrior braid / super hero hairstyle is edgy, unique, and fierce. So fun!

Wonder Woman Hairstyle, Braided Headband Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



As mentioned in our wonder woman hair tutorial (above) we would suggest adding large, voluminous curls to complete your wonder woman Halloween costume and hairstyle.  We have a tutorial showing how to curl hair with a curling wand that would work great. I would suggest using a large barrel for loose, bouncy curls.

Wonder woman DIY headpiece or headband tutorial.

 Supplies needed to recreate this Wonder Woman inspired headpiece:
  • Several small, clear hair elastics.
  • Sectioning clips (alligator clips or claw clips) to help keep hair out of your way while braiding. 
  • A gold or red star sticker.
  • Pomade, gel, hairspray, etc. to help control flyaways.
Over the years we have seen many awesome hairstyles using braids placed over the forehead on Instagram and Pinterest and had the idea to make a wonder woman headband using this concept a few months ago when we heard there would be a DC comics wonder woman movie coming out in 2017! A few inspiring hairstyle accounts we have seen these trendy "forehead braid" or braided tiara warrior princess hairstyles on recently: @ashley_cardon_hairstyles @trenzasnmba @vlechtidee @brianasbraids @ashton_hairstyles @tinkerbeanpoplettes_hairdesign

Hope you enjoyed our Wonder Woman hairstyle tutorial.  Happy Halloween!

This week we wanted to share 6 of our favorite Disney Princess Hair tutorials (including Elsa, Anna, Belle, Cinderella, and Jasmine) all together in one compilation video!

All of these princess hairstyles are fairly easy and "doable." We have tried to simplify and modify the styles to work with "real hair" as most of us weren't born with long, thick, flowing, cartoon princess locks!

Trolls Headband Tutorial & Easy DIY Halloween Costume

Cute Trolls Headband Tutorial #halloween

Since Halloween is right around the corner, this week we are showing a fun DIY "Halloween hairstyle" and Trolls costume idea!   We are loving how easy and quick this "no sew" Trolls headband is to make.  Your finished Trolls hairstyle could be worn to school for a Halloween party, crazy hair day, a Halloween dance, a trip to the pumpkin patch, Oktoberfest, as part of a costume for trick or treating, dress up, or to watch the new Trolls movie featuring Anna Kendrick (Poppy) and Justin Timberlake.  We have seen these cute headbands all over Pinterest and Etsy and thought they were such a great idea!  We love that you could dress up as a troll without having to wear a hot, itchy, and uncomfortable wig!

Trolls Headband Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



Trolls hair video tutorial #halloween #trolls
  
Supplies Needed To Create Your Own Troll Hair:
  • Around 5 yards of tulle (cut into 6x24 inch strips.)  As mentioned in our video tutorial (above) stiffer tulle will work best and don't worry about getting your strips cut perfectly.  You can use any color you want and can even mix colors if you desire multi colored hair or even rainbow hair.
  • 1 headband
  • 1 medium size, clear elastic
  • Scissors
  • Decorative flowers, ribbons, or other accessories (optional)
  • Hot glue gun
To finish your trolls costume, you could wear an overall dress with a plain, long sleeve t-shirt and matching tights.

Cute Braided Hairstyle! The Twisted Wheel Hair Tutorial

Cute braided hairstyle! The twisted wheel hair tutorial.

We hope you'll love this fun and unique half up braided hairstyle with twists!

You may recognize the first few steps in this hairstyle tutorial if you watched our video from a few weeks ago (the braided dream catcher.) Today's tutorial is a variation (or part 2) of our "dream catcher" hairstyle.  We have taken rope braids (or twist braids) and created a double twist in the center of our lace braids before braiding them back into the hairstyle to form a twisted knot design.

Twisted Wheel Hairstyle Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



Unique braided hairstyle, the twisted wheel hair tutorial.

We thought the end result looked a lot like a wheel with braided spokes!   This style could also be used around Halloween time as a fun spider web hairstyle. ;)

Unique hairstyle! The twisted wheel. Video tutorial.

This half up, half down hairstyle would be a cute hairstyle for school, for recitals, dances, church, communions, special occasions, etc.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
  • 2 medium size hair elastics
  • Several temporary hair ties or clips to hold the twists/braids while you are working. 
  • Hairspray, gel, etc.
  • This hairstyle will work best on long hair or medium length hair.

Belle Hairstyle Tutorial, Beauty And The Beast Inspired

Belle Hair Tutorial, Beauty and the Beast inspired. Video instructions.
This Belle hair tutorial is inspired by Disney's new "Beauty And The Beast."  A beautiful half up hairstyle which is worn with the gorgeous yellow ball gown in the dancing scene with the Beast.

We are so excited for the new live action Beauty and the Beast Disney movie coming out on March 17, 2017. And we could not wait to film this hair tutorial! We have loved watching Emma Watson for years and think she will make the perfect Belle. (Our favorite Disney Princess!)

Belle Hair Tutorial, Elegant Half Up Bun Hairstyle: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



Before filming this tutorial, we tried searching the internet for a clear picture of this hairstyle from an actual movie still shot, but were unsuccessful. (We only found blurry pics from the side or front and a very quick flash of the style in the official trailer.) So, this is our perceived rendition and not an exact replica.  Based off of the animated movie and books, seeing Belle at Disneyland, etc...  we know her classic style is a half up with curls, with some type of bun in the back, possibly featuring a yellow ribbon or gold hair accessory of some sort. Of course, although our minor details may not be spot on with the new movie, this hairstyle will definitely pass for Belle!  We can't wait to see the actual authentic details when we go watch this in the theater next month! 

Gorgeous Belle hair tutorial. Half up bun hairstyle from Beauty and the Beast.

Beauty and the Beasty hairstyle tutorial. Emma Watson (Disney Belle) inspired.

This hairstyle is fairly easy to make (for a Disney Princess hairstyle) and would be great to go with a Princess Belle Halloween costume, a day at Disneyland or Disney world, a Disney Princess party, watching the Beauty and the Beast movie premiere, etc.

Supplies needed to recreate this glamorous hairstyle: 
  • 3 small or medium hair elastics
  • Several bobby pins
  • Finishing hair spray
  • To create the voluminous bun for this style, we used our "Hollywood Half Up" accessory made by Scunci.  When we saw this tool at Walmart, we thought it would be perfect for helping to create Belle's hairstyle and it really was simple to use.  We have an older Belle hair tutorial showing another idea for making the bun from several years ago if you want to check that out. This Bell hairstyle could also be created by following the first few steps shown in our video, and then making a regular twisted, braided, or messy bun with the half ponytail and tying a yellow ribbon around it, or adding a gold clip or barrette (instead of using a bun maker like we did.) 
  • The ringlet curls cascading underneath the bun were created using our 3/4 inch curling iron, starting at the the root.
  • A topsy tail (affiliate) is optional for creating this hairstyle, but does make it easier and can be used for many other styles as well. These can be found online and in some stores that sell hair accessories.

Halloween Hairstyles - Tangled Weave Spider Web Ponytail

Halloween hairstyles. Tangled weave spider web ponytail.

Hey guys. This week we are adding one more fun Halloween hairstyle tutorial to our collection before October is gone!  We recently went through our archives on our website (Princess Hairstyles) and found this spider web ponytail that we originally posted way back in 2008 as a pictorial. We remembered this woven spider web as being one of my daughter's favorites back then.... and she says she still remembers receiving tons of comments and compliments on this hairstyle when she wore it to a school Halloween carnival 8 years ago while she was in Kindergarten!  Of course, we decided we needed to share this spooky hairstyle in an updated video tutorial for you today.

Tangled Weave Spider Web Ponytail Video Tutorial (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)




We are loving the intricate webbing design created around the ponytail with these woven twists.  As mentioned in our video, you could add a bun instead of the ponytail if you prefer, and bring the weaving all the way around her head in a full circle, just like a real spider web!

We added a cute spider bow (which was given to us years ago) to our finished design.  Of course, this is optional but a spider accessory of some kind would make the perfect finishing touch to this hairstyle.

Halloween hair. Spider web hairstyle tutorial.

Supplies needed to recreate this spider web hairstyle:
  • Several small, clear elastics.
  • 1 medium size hair tie or ponytail holder.
  • Several claw clips
  • A spider accessory to add to your finished web (optional.)
This spider web ponytail would be great to go with a Halloween costume, for a Halloween party, a Halloween dance, trick or treating, school or work anytime during October, for a spook alley, haunted house, crazy hair day, etc.

P.S. Although this hairstyle is fairly easy and requires no braiding skills at all... it can be time consuming.  I would give yourself 20-30 minutes to complete.

Spider Web Bun Hairstyle Tutorial

Halloween Hair, spiderweb bun tutorial. #halloween #spiderweb

This week we are showing another fun Halloween Hairstyle and this one might be our favorite so far!  We are loving this spider web bun / ponytail since it looks festive for Halloween, but isn't too over the top or crazy for teens, or even adults.  This spooky Halloween spiderweb hairstyle could be worn to school, for a Halloween party, a Halloween dance, a trip to the pumpkin patch, Oktoberfest, or as part of a costume for trick or treating.

Spider Web Bun, Video Tutorial: Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.

Supplies needed to recreate this spider web hairstyle:
  • We purchased the silver ribbon used to make our webbing at a local craft store.  You can use any color or type that you want. We have found that thinner ribbon works best for this style.  You could also use yarn or string if you prefer (which may lay flatter and be easier to sew in.)
  • The donut bun maker we used can be found in most stores that carry beauty supplies.  You can also find them online (affiliate.)
  • We purchased the plastic craft needle (shown in our tutorial above) at Walmart.  You could also use a regular sewing needle.
  • You will need 3 medium size hair elastics or hair ties to make the bun and several clips or temporary hair ties to hold your braids while you are working.
  • Of course if you wanted to take this style a step further, you could add a spider accessory to your web!  We have seen some plastic spider rings at the dollar store that would be perfect.  ;)

Eyeball Bun Hairstyle For Halloween Or Crazy Hair Day!

Eyeball bun hairstyle for Halloween or Crazy Hair Day

 Hey guys, we are back with another fun HALLOWEEN HAIRSTYLE or CRAZY HAIR DAY idea for you today!  Depending on your Halloween costume, this eyeball bun would be perfect to go with a scary / creepy costume.... or with a funny / cute costume.  I could see this hairstyle working with many creative and unique DIY costume ideas actually:  A monster, zombie, witch, robot, alien, sea creature, swamp creature, etc. Or if you don't want to go "all out" dressing up, or aren't allowed to wear a full costume to school, you could just wear the eyeball bun by itself! We were thinking you could wear this bun and go as a "mom" because moms have eyes in the back of their heads, and those eyes would probably be bloodshot lol.

Eyeball Bun Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)



Eyeball Bun Hairstyle Tutorial For Halloween or Crazy Hair Day!

As shown in our tutorial, we started with a standard donut bun or sock bun, and it really doesn't matter how you make it, you just need a "roundish" bun to start with.  We have several videos and different methods on our YouTube channel already showing how to make these buns.  You can look at our donut bun playlist to see if there is one that would work for you.

Supplies needed to recreate this Halloween Hairstyle: 
  • We used the "perfect bun" tool (affiliate) to make our bun, which can be found online or in stores. 
  • You could also use a donut bun maker (affiliate.) 
  • 2 medium size hair elastics or hair ties.
  • Several bobby pins
  • Hairspray or gel
  • We purchased our plastic eyeball and pipe cleaners at the dollar store, but I also found some online here: Plastic eyeballs (affiliate) and here: Pipe cleaners (affiliate.)
  • Hot glue gun
(If you don't have a bun maker tool, you could actually just use a rolled up sock with the toe cut out, or you could make a standard bun by wrapping your hair around the top of a ponytail and pinning it in place.)

Of course, if you would rather make 2 eyeballs on the back of your head, you could start with pigtails instead.  Or, you could stack 2 buns vertically, like a faux hawk.

Happy trick or treating!

Unicorn Hairstyle For Halloween Or Crazy Hair Day

Unicorn Hairstyle Tutorial #halloweenhairstyles #halloween #crazyhairday

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.

Unicorn Hair Tutorial, DIY Video Instructions

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.
