Spooky Hairstyles: Devil Cat Ears
Start off by combing your hair with a hairbrush for a smooth and sleek start
Curl your hair!
Separation your hair into smaller and more manageable sections and curl small sections of hair within each area.
Pin your accessory into place.
Curl the remaining sections and then place your headband on your head. Use bobby pins to hold the headband in place
Wrap your cat ears.
Grab a 2-inch section of hair from the front of your head and twist it before threading it through the headband. Repeat on the other side!
That’s it! Pair your cat ears with a vampy makeup look for the full effect!
Spooky Hairstyles: Double Braids
Prep your strands.
Start off by prepping your strands with a smoothing cream. We love Bed Head by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream for a style like this! Run a dollop through the ends of your hair.
Section your hair.
Use your fingers or a comb to extend your part to the nape of your neck as you separate your hair into two sections
Create tight three-strand braids on each side of your head.
Secure the end of each braid with hair tie and that’s it – you’re done
Spooky Hairstyles: Lion Hair
Comb your hair.
Start off by combing your hair so that you have a smooth and sleek base
Section and secure.
After that, section off your hair to prepare your strands for curling. These smaller sections will make your hair much easier to manage!
Curl each section.
It’s time to curl! Use a 1-inch curling wand to curl small sections of your hair to create that naturally curly look
Add some shine!
Add some major shine to your curls by misting them with Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairspray. This hairspray will give your curls a boost of shine and hold at the same time!
Finger comb your curls.
Flip your head over and use your hands to finger comb your curls and separate them. This will give you that voluminous lioness look
Tease your curls.
If you want to add even more volume, consider using a teasing comb to tease your curls and give them tons of texture
That’s it! Your voluminous lioness mane is complete.
