If you haven’t already decided on what you want to be for Halloween, there are a couple of ideas where using a hair crimper will add to the overall completion of your Halloween costume.
So for starters, how about dressing up as the bride of Frankenstein? It may not be that easy of a task, but it could be a very dramatic look, and who knows, you may really enjoy the outcome. To create the bride of Frankenstein hairdo be aware that you will be being doing a lot of teasing of your hair. While this style can work well with a variety of hair lengths and hair types, shoulder-length hair works best. If you hair is longer, it might be more of a challenge. Are you ready to see what is needed, well here goes.
ITEMS NEEDED: Crimping iron, ultra maximum hold hairspray, teasing brush or comb, hair pins, white colored temporary spray color to add streaks to the style.
- Spray your entire head with hairspray lightly.
- Take your hair and divide into 1 to 3 inch sections and start crimping from the roots down. Crimp until all sections of hair are done.
- Tease your hair to the max at the crown and all the way to the roots. This process is for creating a base. Spray heavily with hairspray.
- Tease the surrounding sections of your hair lightly and spray well so you can pin them to the base you have created.
- Take your hair and work the style into a cone shape. Tease if necessary and then apply hairspray to the outside sections.
- Once you have the desired cone shape, spray yet again to make sure the style lasts for whatever amount of time you are going to be partying.
- The final step is taking the white colored spray and spraying a white line that starts above your ears and continues upward diagonally to the ends of your hair.
Ok, so if you’re not into the Bride of Frankenstein, or if it looks like too much work, how about going as something reminiscent of the 1980’s? Looking punk, or wearing your tresses crimped will certainly bring some laughs and fun into your style. The picture below is that of Jody Foster in the 80’s. If you have short to medium length hair this could work along with wearing the 80’s wardrobe. This hairstyle only requires crimping each section of your hair with no teasing of the hair or excessive amounts of hairspray. You simply want to section your hair and pin it up as you crimp each section.
