So Perrie confirmed that her bob is fake, and the thought of a fake bob really interested me: how does it work?

So i googled it, and here are some simple steps! (Note that this hairstyle probably looks best with hair that has layers!)

1) Divide your hair, ponytail at the length you want.
2) Roll your hair so everything after the hair elastic is under the hair thats above the elastic.
3) Pin your hair under. (The tutorial website suggests two perpendicular bobby pins)
4) Repeat on other ponytail.
5) Hairspray and youre all set!

Summer’s creepin’ hard and if you’re in Southern California like us, it has arrived early. Wherever you live, warm weather means messy waves, braids and ponytails so let’s start with this gem, shall we? This look was created on the fly with no plan so excuse the unconventional-ness of it, but sometimes those make the best looks. Alright, here we go…

You’ll need (click for product details)

  1. Add some quick wand waves all around the head.
  2. Go in different directions for a messier result. Don’t brush out your waves when you finish, just finger comb at the most.
  3. Next, add a little texture powder into the hair. I like to do a LITTLE bit all over because too much will make the hair feel sticky and gross. Just a little sprinkle all over will make it feel beach-y and look fuller. The main reason we use texture powder for this is so the little strands don’t slip. Texture powder creates an amazing grip, making it much less likely for the bobby pins to slide out.
  4. Once your texture powder is applied, take two small strands from the front (right around the temple area) and pull them back.
  5. Tie those in a half knot.
  6. Take two of your mini bobby pins and criss cross them through the half knot to secure.
  7. Now the tricky part! Take those two strands from the tail of your knot and criss cross them underneath the ponytail near the nape of your neck. Grab one of your MICRO CLIPS and secure the criss crossed pieces behind the ponytail. Wiggle the tiny clip into the ponytail to conceal it. Seems like you’d see them, but trust me, these are so small, they disappear into the ponytail (which looks and feels extra thick because of the texture powder).
  8. Gather a little more hair from the back to thicken up each strand before pulling it around and tying it again.
  9. Repeat as many times as desired.  You can do it once, twice or 5 times if it will work with your length!
  10. Last you’ll want to pull the hair gently to create a little more texture. Add another sprinkling of texture powder if desired.

anonymous asked:

where did you get your dirk wig from? and if you dont mind me asking how did you style it?

I just ordered it for cheap over amazon, pfffit’s not anything expensive or special. I can’t remember the exact wig I bought, but it was an eleven dollar “blond cosplay wig” or something along those lines. Short blonde cosplay wig on amazon. As for styling it, what I did was accidentally BUTCHER it, went “oh fuck” and sectioned off the “spikes” as large or small as I wanted them, gently teased the base for volume and so the spikes would stay somewhat elevated, shaped them with my hands so the pieces all swept back, and hairsprayed the shit out of it. I just kept messing with it and tried to keep a consistent directional flow with the spikey bits. I personally like the way swept straight back looks.

Overall it was cut to layer the back, section out pieces of hair and gently tease the base, spray and shape then spray again, repeat piece by piece until you have the swept back shape you want, then DOUSE in hairspray. Always trim the bangs of your wig, too. A lot of Dave and Dirk cosplayers leave the bangs as they are, but that’s one of the easiest bits to cut and it always looks a little cleaner and a little more polished if you trim the bangs!

I've recently auditioned for a local production of Hairspray. It was very popular and there were loads of people at the audition so I knew I wasn't going to get a main role. I really wanted to be on the council but I ended up getting a role in the ensemble. Do you know roughly how much the ensemble do in the show of Hairspray as I don't really want to just be walking on and off in the background as the council does most of the extra singing and dancing. Sorry and thanks xx

Tbh I’m not really sure I have never done hairspray, but even if the council does most of the singing and dancing there is still something left for you to do- ACT. Find somewhere that you can be funny and go for it. Hairspray has millions of opportunists for a smaller role to be hysterical!

anonymous asked:

Hank how do you get your hair like it is in the graduation video?, I've been trying to get that look since I started dudeing it up when I came out as genderfluid.

Honestly, I had a stylist teach me while I was on the Titansgrave set (which is coming out in early June!) She made my hair look amazing so I finally was like “What are you doing?” It’s pretty much just matte molding putty (she suggested expensive stuff, but I’ve been using the cheap-ass Old Spice stuff I got at target, which actually smells quite nice) 

Basically I just put it in there (concentrating on the part) and then comb my hair backward. After it gets even distributed I just use my fingers to make it do what I want. If I have any crazy flyers I use some of Katherine’s hairspray.
