Cute Halloween Hairstyles: Cat Ears


Start clean.

Make sure your hair is cleaned and conditioned before you begin to create this look. Use a moisture-rich shampoo and conditioner, like Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Conditioner. Air-dry or blow-dry your hair, and then brush it and create your part.

Create two pigtails.

After brushing your hair, leave two pieces of your hair on the side of your face. Then, go to the sections that are behind your front pieces of hair. Work in two sections as you lift up the hair and then wrap it into a ponytail. Secure with a hair tie. Repeat this on the other side of your hair to create the second pigtail.

Tease your pigtails.

Use a comb or brush to tease the hair in your pigtails in an upward motion. This will create some natural volume and body for your cat ears.

Loop your hair around the pigtails.

Then, hold your pigtail and loop it around your ponytail, making sure to create a circular bun a.k.a the cat ear part. Pin your cat ear together with some carefully placed bobby pins. Ed’s note: This hairstyle is slightly different from space buns that entail wrapping your hair completely around to create a mini-bun.

And you’re done! Marvel in this awesome cat ear hairstyle. If you find that you have any flyaways in your hair, tame them with some serum like Suave Split End Rescue Hair Serum and finish off with a hairspray, like TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray.
