HALLOWEEN: FABULOUS FLAPPER

This flapper look is all that jazz and so easy to recreate! All you need is the Beachwaver Pro, Wrap Up and this pretty feather flapper headwrap from Icing.

Step 1: Create a deep side part.

Step 2: Divide hair into three sections: Left, Right and Back. 

Step 3: Select "R" on the Beachwaver® Pro.

Step 4: Select a 1-inch piece of hair, clamp the hair all the way and the bottom and hold "GO" to start the rotation. Be sure to keep the hair in the same spot on the barrel, as you want to create a tight curl. We have a great tutorial here so that you can see exactly how a roller set is done using The Beachwaver Pro. 

Step 5: Release hair and clip the curl with a metal duckbill clip. Repeat this and continue to curl 1-inch sections. 

Step 6: Allow the curls to cool.

Step 7: Remove clips, and spray hair with a flexible hold hairspray

Step 8: Using the Wrap Up, create a faux bob. Tutorial here.

Step 9: Spray hair with a flexible hold hair spray like Aussie's Sprunch Spray to finish off the look!

 


 
 

HALLOWEEN: Feisty Feline

 

We took the classic cat costume and put a spin on it by using the Beachwaver Pro, Wrap Up and fun faux leather cat ears!

Step 1: First, part your hair by sectioning it right down the center of your head with a Darby Clip and secure that section into a ponytail.

Step 2: Using the Wrap Up, create a bun at the top of your head.

Step 3: Gather up the rest of your hair into a pony tail right underneath the bun.

Step 4: Curl the ponytail with the Beachwaver Pro and allow the curls to cool.

Step 5: Lastly, twist your ponytail into one big curl.


 
 

HALLOWEEN: SWEET SUGAR SKULL

The best part of a sugar skull look, is that you can play around with what kind of colors you want to incorporate. We decided to use big purple flowers, a sequined mesh black flower and two Wrap Ups. Here what we did:

Step 1: Section your hair in half horizontally and create two side ponytails.

Step 2: Create a bun using the Wrap Up on the bottom ponytail.

Step 3 & Step 4: Create a bun using the Wrap Up on the top ponytail. 

Step 5: Add in the flowers in between both buns and all the way to the top of your head.


 
 

HALLOWEEN: BEAUTIFUL BUNNY

Hop into Halloween with this cute bunny look using these pink and white sequin bunny ears, which also comes with a fluffy cotton tail from Icing.

Step 1: Start by using the Beachwaver Pro to curl your hair into tight curls.

Step 2: After your curls have completely cooled, use a comb to tease your hair starting at the roots and working your way out.

Step 3: Spray your locks with a flexible hold hairspray, we always suggest Aussie's Sprunch Spray and you're all set!
