Elsa’s Bun

We all are touched by Disney’s animation Frozen. You know that traditionally, in fairy tales, the true love’s kiss is meant to be done between the prince and the princess, but in past 2014 year we witnessed another type of love, that kind of love that is often accepted as something given and not worth to fight for – the family love. You love your parents by default and they love you the same way, but that “by default” love is beyond anything else. This particular type of love is stronger than anything else – the love between parents and their children, and love between brothers and sisters.

I think that the Frozen movie educates not only the children, but also the parents. In fact, I think that I will paraphrase – the Frozen educates the children and remind the parents the true meaning of love.

It’s great to imitate characters like Elsa and Anna and to forget about Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. Let’s teach our kids (future or current) to cherish the things that are valuable in life. And let’s start teaching them by watching together great animated movies like Frozen. But a little problem will come to the surface – the copying process. They will cry for Elsa’s look. Don’t worry, it’s not so hard to achieve her look, just find a nice blue dress and make the hairstyle, that will be enough. Take a look at this tutorial for making Elsa’s bun, before her transformation to ice queen.

Just follow the steps:

  1. The hair must be voluminous and huge, so, create that fluffy volume by the back-combing technique.
  2. Flip the hair from one side to the other. Secure it to stay in place by using bobby pins.
  3. Remember leave a strand from the bang area untouched.
  4. Now start to twist the hair from the perimeter of the head to the inside of it. The beginning must be right at the forehead and the end of the twist – the back of the head (the back neckline).
  5. When you reach the end of the hair, tie it into a low ponytail.
  6. Divide the ponytail into two halfs. Grab the first one and twist it around the hair band.
  7. Then grab the last strand, twist and wrap around the first half of the tail. Secure with bobby pins.
  8. Tuck in the strand from the bang behind your ear.
  9. Done!
    Enjoy the happy smile on your little princess’s face!
