The Babydoll Elf

May 3, 2013

Hello!! My name is Zoe Deluge from Grand Theft Thrift. I’ve been a longtime fan of Drifter & the Gypsy, so I was very excited when Micaela asked me to be the new DIY Hair contributor!

Coincidentally, I graduated from hair school when I was 17 (and failed). Regardless, I am always trying to change up my hairstyles! I’m really inspired by a lot of Japanese styles, so I’m going to try to incorporate that into some of my posts! I hope you all enjoy!

This first look is a more simple look. I call it, “The Babydoll Elf” (hehe). It’s a good way to change up your look real quick and works with most hairstyles and lengths that are past about 9 inches. It even works with my straight bangs!

Anyways, if you want a more youthful looking hairdo for your springtime looks, I think this will work for you! And it takes about less than 2 mins!

Step 1: Part your hair where you want your bangs to separate.

Step 2: If you have straight bangs like me, take some hair from behind, brush it forward, and comb it through your bangs. Make sure it’s even! And make sure it’s a thick section!

Step 3: Separate the front portion of your hair in front of your ear and put the remainder behind your ear so that your ear sticks out.

Step 4: Pull your bang section gently to make a side swept bang. Make sure that your other eyebrow is covered or is partially covered.

Step 5: Tuck the section behind your ear.

Step 6: Bobby pin the section behind your ear (so you don’t see the bobby pin). Make sure to pin upwards. Gently adjust your bang swoop to how loose, messy, tight, big, or small you want it.

Step 7: Hairspray to hold.

Step 8: Annnd you’re done! I hope that was easy and you liked my tutorial! Now you are ready to wear your white vintage babydoll dress haha;)

Stop by the first Thursday of next month for my second hair tutorial!
