Ok, for starters … I know you saw this over at Hair 4 My Princess — but this is a bit different. I seriously am not copying her! And as my disclaimer, I, in fact e-mailed her about this when I saw her post & because she is such a nice person, she said she wouldn’t mind if I posted mine too. I watched this movie last month and after we’d watched it & I’d freaked out about this funky hair do… I made my husband go frame by frame in slo-mo (he is so patient with me!) so I could actually take pictures of it. Yes … can we say o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d.??!! Anyway, like she said over at H4MP there is nothing online – except a little video clip of her wearing this do, but you can’t see it from behind …. so you’ll have to settle for my crappy pictures off my old fashioned non-HD non-flat screen TV! (gasp – yes, I still have a big ol’ box!)
So I’ll spare you all my many photo’s of step by step for the first part since you can also see them here … but here’s a few of mine.
I parted her hair from ear to ear. Then parted her hair down the middle. Then parted those 2 sections into 2 — making 4 sections total. Then I twisted and made some chunky cornrows. If you want to see how I do mine go to this old post. I initially secured them with a bobby pin, but at a later step I pulled them out.
Oh, and btw – the cornrows that are on the top I rolled downwards, and the ones closest to the ears I rolled upwards. So they kind of roll towards each other. I did this different the first time I’d attempted this, but after looking at all the pictures I took ,I think they did Piper’s hair several times too … because sometimes they were all rolled 1 direction, then other times they were rolled towards each other. No matter … in the end, do what you want!
Then this is where mine differs a bit ….
Then divide the ponytail into a bunch of twists. Piper’s kind of look like braids, but at the same time corkscrews, so I went with corkscrews! Do a bunch of them and secure them somehow so they don’t come undone while you’re doing the other ones.
Anyway, there you have it. A second look at Beverly Hills Chihuahua hair – ok not the Chihuahua but Piper Perabo hair — whom btw has since chopped her hair quite short! Thanks for playing! (And thanks Kori (Hair 4 My Princess) for being gracious enough to be ok with me posting this too!)
