Halloween How-Tos: Holly Golightly, Khaleesi and Lily Rabe
Still deciding what you want to be for Halloween this year? Don't worry, we've been procrastinating as well. To help you out and provide your clients with perfect hairstyles for Halloween and beyond, Stylist Kelly Muldoon has provided how-tos for characters from your and your clients favorite movies and shows--Breakfast at Tiffany's, Game of Thrones and American Horror Story Coven--using T3 tools.
For a glam updo like Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's:
Step 1: Begin by spraying a setting gel lightly over dry hair.
Step 2: Section hair into five parts (one on each side, one in front, one on top, and one in the back)
Step 3: Wrap hair tightly in T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Step 4: While taking out each section, back brush the hair and leave it teased out. Lightly spritz with hairspray.
Step 5: Take back section, smooth over and twist up at the back of the head. Add hairpins as you twist.
Step 6: Once the twist reaches the top of the head, leave the rest of the hair out.
Step 7: Next, take the left section, smooth out top layer and secure with bobby pins next to the twist. Repeat with the right side.
Step 8: Play around with the hair at the top of the head until you achieve a style you like. Once you love it, secure with a few more bobby pins.
For dreamy curls and braids like Khaleesi from Game of Thrones:
Step 1: Begin by creating a middle part.
Step 2: Starting with the top right side of the head, take a triangle section and begin braiding, while taking sections of hair under as you go for an exposed braid. Stop once you get to the middle of the back of the head and tie hair off.
Step 3: Move to the other side of the head and create another exposed braid to meet the other one on the back of the head. Once they meet, tie together.
Step 4: Repeat these steps for the second braided section underneath.
Step 5: Wrap the two braids from the second braided section together, over the pony from the first braided section.
Step 6: Next, pull a few wisps out at the front. Using the T3 1.25” Twirl Convertible Curling iron, wrap bottom sections around iron and create several curls.
Step 7: Finish with hairspray.
For textured waves like bayou sorceress Lily Rabe from American Horror Story Coven:
Step 1: Begin by sectioning the hair into four parts.
Step 2: Starting at the back of the head, take a 1-inch section.
Step 3: Spray gel onto the fingers and work through the first 1-inch section.
Step 4: Holding the 1-inch barrel of the T3 Whirl Trio on a slant, and starting two inches away from the root, wrap the hair around the barrel.
Step 5: Hold for five seconds, remove and then pin curl to head.
Step 6: Repeat step until all four sections are complete.
Step 7: Keep all hair clipped in place for five minutes.
Step 8: Take all pins out and let the curls fall.
Step 9: Run fingers through hair until curl drops a bit.
Step 10: Finish with a spritz of hairspray.
