The perfect Halloween getup requires the right hair and makeup. If you are dressing up as a fairy or mystical creature this Halloween, try this gorgeous “mystically ethereal” hairstyle created by Pantene Global Stylist Ambassador, Sam McKnight, for the Vivienne Westwood’s S/S 2012 Gold Label show!
Step 1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair, using Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Solutions Breakage to Strength Shampoo and Conditioner to create the perfect base.
Step 2. Next give your hair a boost by applying the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Style Triple Action Volume Mousse throughout. Then blow-dry smooth using a flat bristle brush, concentrating on smoothing the length of the hair with the brush for a soft result.
Step 3. Once completely dry, create a full circle parting round the circumference of the hair line (just a couple of inches in) and let the loose hair fall down and create a ‘veil’ around the hair line.
Step 4.Create 2-3 diagonal partings at random, and secure each section of hair in to a ponytail and secure with a snag-free elastic.
Step 5.Next braid each pony tail and secure at the end. Loosen the braid a little by pulling it slightly apart with your fingers.
Step 6. Loop each braid back on itself and secure against the original ponytail – use hair clips to hold in place if needed.
Step 7. Apply Pantene Pro-V Restore Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm to the ends to smooth away any frizz.
Step 8. Finish the style with a generous spray of Pantene Classic Care Hairspray to keep the look in place.
