Hairstyles you can try

Create a parting in the middle and keep is consciously untidy and a little random. Take a section of hair and wrap it around a curling wand keep it away from your face. Keep it for almost half a minute and gently slide it off the hair. Repeat the action for other sections of hair for smooth curls all over and set by applying a hair spry to keep the curls intact.
    2. 2. If you want to go Disney (who doesn’t!), this is how you can get hair like Merida from ‘Brave’. All you have to do is wrap small sections of damp hair around regular drinking straws. Wind the hair tightly and tie the ends of the straw like the first knot of a show lace to keep the hair in place. Keep them overnight or dry them with a blow dryer for feisty curly hair. You can also color your hair red with temporary color that are available in spray cans for an authentic look to the hilt.
    3. 3. But if eerie is your style statement, you can get a perfect hairstyle in a matter of just a few minutes. Gather all your hair in a regular ponytail without brushing the hair. Bend your head completely forward and put a hair net to cover the hair. Let the hair fall naturally and you are transformed into a suave witch for the night!
