10 Steps for Hair:

  1. On clean, dry hair, spray Pure Abundance Style Prep and Volumizing Tonic throughout.

  2. Divide hair into (4) quadrants - forehead to nape, ear to ear.  Adjust the center part between your front (2) quadrants to become a far side part on the right side of your head.

  3. Spiral curl 1” horizontal subsections using a similarly sized curling iron through the back (2) quadrants.Halloween costumes makeup hair paper doll Dosha Salon Spa Creative Team makeup artist hairstylist costume DIYHalloween costumes makeup hair paper doll Dosha Salon Spa Creative Team makeup artist hairstylist costume DIY

  4. Starting at the bottom of your front left side quadrant, separate the hair into 1” horizontal subsections

  5. Curl each subsection from ends to scalp and pin in place facing down towards your left ear.  Let these curls cool as you move up the head towards your right side quadrant.

  1. Repeat the last step on your right side quadrant, now pinning each curl to face down towards your right ear.

  2. Release all curls once cool.  Brush through the left side quadrant with your fingers or a finishing brush to create soft, loose waves.

  3. Brush the curls on your right side quadrant up and behind your ear; pin in place with 2-3 bobby pins (more pins may be necessary for thicker hair)

  4. Pull all curls in front of your left shoulder.

  5. Spray style with Air Control.

  7. Apply a bright pink or peach lipcolor to the center of your lips and blend outward to the corners of your mouth.

  8. Coat your lashes in black mascara - apply bold false flashes to your top lash line if desired.

  9. Using a black liquid liner (preferably with a felt tip), trace the following facial features:  brows, cheekbones, lips, bridge of your nose, nostrils, slightly above eyelid crease, chin crease, jawline and draw dramatic bottom lashes.                                         Halloween costumes makeup hair paper doll Dosha Salon Spa Creative Team makeup artist hairstylist costume DIY

  10. Once liquid liner is dry, set your face with translucent powder.

 
 

*BONUS COSTUME IDEA!*

On poster board, have a friend trace the top half of your body with a pencil.  Use this as a size reference to create the “outfit” of your choice!  Be sure to include tabs at the shoulder and sides.  Cut design out and attach to your base clothing.

Voila!
