Once you’ve braided both sides, it’s time to get to curling. Instead of working in sections to precisely curl your entire mane, grab random ½-inch pieces of hair and wrap them around your curling wand with the wand facing down to create a beachy, textured look. Hold the section on the wand for a few seconds to form the curl, then gently release it. Allow your curls to cool down before moving on to the next step.
Start with the braid on right side of your head and begin pancaking. This technique creates the look of a larger braid. Gently pull apart each section of the braid starting with the end and working your way up. Repeat this step on the opposite side.
Pick up the four strand braid on the right side of your head and pull it to the back of your head. Use a few bobby pins to hold the braid in place. Repeat the process on the opposite side.
Once your braids are secured, your hippie hairstyle is nearly complete. Place small flower accents randomly throughout your braids and around the crown of your head. Lock it all in with a few spritzes of Redken Windblown 05 Hairspray. This mild control volumizing & texturizing dry hairspray creates airy texture, weightless volume and flexible fullness to hold a full windswept effect.
Now that you’re equipped with all there is to know about creating a hippie Halloween hairstyle, you’re ready to try the look for yourself!
