We’ve got another cute tutorial for those of you that are thinking about being Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz for Halloween. We did this as a pic-torial on Bug clear back in 2008 but thought we’d try again and shoot a video this time.
I’ve seen so many girls be Dorothy for Halloween and they simply have 2 regular braids, and while it looks cute, there is just a little more to the style than plain braids. It doesn’t take a whole lot more effort to create the actual look, and that’s what we’ll show you in our video today.
Step 2 – On the right side, starting at the center part, twist the hair backward along the face
Step 3 – Twist hair along the face until you are just past the ear
Step 4 – Gather remaining hair on the right side and divide in half
Step 5 – Cross the twist over the first section of hair so it becomes part of the braid
Step 6 – Create a regular 3 strand braid being careful your twist doesn’t come undone
Step 7 – Braid about half way down and secure the end with an elastic
Step 8 – Curl the ends of the braid
Step 9 – Tie a bow with some ribbon to hide the elastic
Step 10 – Repeat on the left side
I just can’t get over how time flies — She still looks pretty much the same, don’t you think?!
