Wind-up Doll: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Forget buying a costume! For me, the best part about dressing up for Halloween is making your costume yourself! Here’s a super easy DIY and chances are you have most or all of these things already! Here we go...

 

This look is selfie worthy for sure! 
This look is selfie worthy for sure! 

Ok so first things first, you’re going to have to make the wind-up key! It’s fairly simple. You’ll need: an empty paper towel roll, a piece of construction paper or cardboard, ribbon, aluminum foil, and some kind of glue {hot glue is best since it dries instantly!}.

Here’s a little peek at the makeup and supplies you’ll need. 

 

1. Cut a figure 8 out of the paper. Then cut out smaller circles in each end, so it looks like a giant number 8!

2. Cover the 8 and the paper towel roll in foil.  

3. Hot glue them together to make the key shape. 

4. Punch a hole on each side of the base of the paper towel role and thread the ribbon through.  

5. Be sure to cut the ribbon long enough to wrap around your waist and tie a bow!  

6. Side note: depending on the materials you use, the key may be heavy and sag after a while. If it does, you can tie ribbon or fishing wire to the key and attach it to your straps or shoulders to distribute the weight.

Here’s what the key should look like! Be sure to put on your favorite short length dress! Bonus points if you have knee highs!

Now for the makeup...

Use black eyeliner and draw “marionette” lines around your mouth connecting the corner of your lips to your chin.

Bold bright lips is key! Think pink!

Circular bright blush finishes off the doll vibe! As far as the rest of your makeup goes, just do it the way you’re comfortable doing! Add lashes for extra flutter if you’re feeling bold! 

 

 

Here’s the final look! So fun right?! Easy peasy DIY.

How to: Mega-Volume Ponytail

Jessica Palmer

P&P Stylist Ashley Aspenlind shows us your not so average pony tail...taking it from girlie to glam...rockstar worthy for sure!

 

Start by gently teasing down the center of your head in three sections, setting with hairspray as you go. We are going for mega volume and texture.


Tease the sides now in a backwards motion.

Then gather your hair into a pony tail, gently smoothing the hair back. Make sure you secure the ponytail tightly so you don't loose the volume you created.

Grab a small section of the pony tail and smooth it.

 

Take the separated piece and wrap it around the ponytail. Secure the end with a bobby pin. Push the bobby pin from the underside of the pony directly up and into the hair...it's essentially hidden in the ponytail behind the hair band!

Tease the ponytail for extra drama and set with hairspray.

 


There you have it! It's girly with an edge...and I love the mega volume!

Cheers to Being Girlie, Glam, and Anything But Average,

How To: Fishtail Braid

Jessica Palmer

I absolutely love fishtail braids! It is my go to style when I want to look polished in a flash...I typically do them to the side and with volume so I don't feel like I'm bald...plus I mean what's the point of an intricate braid unless you get to enjoy seeing it too! I posted this look from a recent shoot on IG (um are you following me? Get on it! @polishandpout) and the consensus was that we needed to post a tutorial.

The best part about this hairstyle is that it looks incredibly complicated when it's actually quite simple! It only involves two sections of hair. A few tips: the smaller of strands you work with while braiding, the more fine, thin boned look you'll get. But thick pieces work great too! It's all about preference and how much time you have. Try this look on dirty hair with a little dry shampoo. The perfect way to skip a wash (don't worry I won't tell!).I always tease the crown and pin back the front of the hair into some version of some up and some down for added height! After you finish the braid you can rearrange or even sometimes take out the hair pins!

 

 

 

So here's the video...braids are best learned in live motion I think! It's an oldie but a goodie! Enjoy!

 

 

Cheers to Braids, Beauty, and Dirty Hair,

Such a Tease: Voluminous Hair How-To

Jessica Palmer

Whether you wear your hair up or down, curled or straight, one thing that's for sure is no one wants flat-stuck-to your-head hair. Volume is key! Some simple teasing can take your hair from flat to amazing in a couple minutes. P&P hair stylist Ashley shows us how.

Tools: Grab a comb and some hair spray. You're going to tease your hair in 3 sections, 2 layers each. On the back half of the crown of your head and on either side of your temples.

1. Lightly spray your first layer on the back section.

2. GENTLY, comb your hair down towards the root. Don't be super aggressive.

3. Move up the section of hair as you comb down. Repeat in 2 layers in that first section.

4. Repeat in two layers on either side of your head. Sometimes only teasing one layer in each section makes the hair look flat and table like. 2 layers in each section will give the right amount of lift.

5. Remember to spray as you go...but lightly.

6. Fluff the ends of your hair a little so your volume isn't isolated to your roots.

7. Smooth out your hair with your fingers or a comb...be careful, you want to smooth it but not get rid of the volume you created.

 

You know what they say, the higher the hair the closer to God!

 

So Cheers to Hairspray, Height, and Hair to the Heavens,
