Audrey Hepburn Holly Golightly Hair

Halloween Hair Ideas

If you want to move away from the scary Halloween hair styles, this one is a good choice for you. The Audrey Hepburn Holly Golightly hairstyle from the moving Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a perfect icon for a reason. But you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to do. Start off with a volumizer applied to your hair. Then, use a comb to create a part in the back part of your head. Gather the top section and form it into the crown area by twisting one section at a time. Secure each section with a bobby pin.

Then, work on the bottom half of your hair. Gather the hair together and twist them into an upward column. This will help the ends stick up. Hold the column of the hair and tuck it beneath the twist so it cannot be seen from the outside. Use bobby pins to secure the twisted sections and keep them from falling off. Finish off your hairstyle with a spritz of hairspray. You can add on accessories like gloves and sunglasses to complete the look for Halloween.
