A couple of readers asked me to do a tutorial on my hair style in a recent Club Outfit post. I actually created this look using a couple of very inexpensive hairpieces called Magic, made by EasiHair.
|Magic Hairpiece by EasiHair|
Magic hairpieces come on a plastic comb and have two wires covered in bits of hair, as shown in the photo to the right. They can be purchased here for about $13 USD.
I think I am required to state that I am not affiliated with EasiHair or Max Wigs in any way, nor am I being paid for this endorsement.
1. Part your hair and put it up into two high ponytails. You can be pretty messy with this step (as I was), since the Magic hairpieces will cover much of your head when you are done. Just make sure the part is nice and straight (as I did not).
3. Twist the wires on each Magic hairpiece into a circular shape.
4. Insert the comb in front of the bun and slide it in until it’s secure underneath the bun.
5. Arrange the wires on the hairpiece until everything is sticking out just how you like it!
This is actually a classic Goth hairdo and can certainly be done with real hair. However, doing so requires a lot of teasing and hairspray. I have delicate hair, plus I strive for as much length as possible, so teasing is most definitely out of the question for me. Here’s a YouTube tutorial on big, Gothy teased hair (not affiliated with me in any way) if you want to give that method a try.
I hope my “Magic” secret will be useful to others who must also be gentle with their hair!
Please let me know any time you wish to see tutorials on any of my hair styles, makeup or DIY accessories/alterations.
