Get dazzling cartoon hair for Halloween in 9 easy steps
Prep and section hair.
Now section the hair by using the tail end of a brush, starting from the top of each ear until you reach the centre (as you would with a half-up, half- down hairstyle). Then brush your front section forward, or secure it with a hairband if it’s easier.
Begin to set the hair.
Mist this section with a light-hold hairspray (like the TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray ) and gently tease at the root. By teasing this section of hair, you will create the foundation for perfect cartoon kid volume.
Create your first curl.
Using a hair straightener or curling wand (whichever you prefer), feed through your section of hair to create a tight curl. Keep hold of that section (careful, as it will still be warm) and start to roll it with your fingers back to the root.
Once you have it in place, use a hair clip to secure it and allow to cool while you move on to the next step.
Continue to curl.
Start to work on the front of the hair.
Once you have done this, start to create your first section and this time you are going to work from the top of the hair going in triangle-shaped sections.
And you guessed it, continue the process just like in step 4 and once that side is done, you just have the final side to finish. Keep persevering, you’re almost there!
Allow to cool.
While you’re allowing your curls to cool, it’s time to take those selfies for your Instagram story – don’t forget to give your best 1950s impression! #Slay
Now give the hair an extra spritz of hairspray before moving on to your next step.
Release those curls.
Starting back at the beginning, unclip your first curl and then unclip the rest in the order you curled them. Now you should have a mass of very curly curls – not what you were looking for? Fret not, as we haven’t finished with you yet.
Shake those curls loose.
Now reach for your paddle brush and gently brush through the curls, bringing them back away from the face.
Tip: Spray your paddle brush with your hairspray before gently pulling it through your hair to help tame any flyaways.
Then just give your tresses one final spritz of hairspray and…
