Today was "Crazy Hair Day" at Riley's school, and one would typically think...let's just throw a few braids in or a big bow!
No! My daughter is very extra, so of course, we had to turn her into a complete unicorn!
Thanks to YouTube, it actually turned out to be easier than I expected, so thought I'd share the tutorial for anyone else who has an "extra" child!
- bobby pins
- 4 hair ties
- tin foil
- hair chalk (or any hair coloring product you like)
- Optional: clip in hair extensions (I had some old ones lying around the house that we used)
The video below is the tutorial we used to make her horn. Turns out there are a LOT of tutorials about this on YouTube. I watched a few, and this one seemed to be the most doable without causing a major 6 year old tantrum!
After we got her horn all set in place, I put 3 ponytails down the back of her head, but you could honestly do whatever you wanted with the extra hair! Curls, one ponytail, braids, etc! I did add one hair extension to each ponytail to give it some extra volume.
To finish off the look, I used hair chalk to add some color. The photos don't do a good job of showing the color, but I promise these work. The chalk is SUPER easy to use and mess free. How easy is it to wash out....well...we'll find out tonight!
