Easy Kids’ Crazy Hair Tutorials

Easy Kids’ Crazy Hair Tutorials

There are always spirit days at school, VBS, and camps. Our kids always get into spirit days and crazy hair day is no exception! I’ve pulled together a few styles that have been fairly easy, use mostly things we already had around the house, and the kids love. So, get ready to get CrAzY!

The Lizard

This hairstyle is great for boys whose hair is a little longer on top and shorter on the sides. It’s also much easier for older kids since their hair is a little less fine and soft than younger kids.

Materials

  • Hair spiking glue (we love got2b Glued and purchase it at Target, but it’s available at most grocery or beauty stores)
  • Firm hold hairspray
  • Green spray temporary hair color
  • Green and pink pipe cleaners
  • Large googly eyes

Directions

  1. Create a mohawk using the spiking glue. Create a pointed “nose” in front and down the forehead. Create a “tail” in back by allow the spiked mohawk to drift to one side.
  1. Spray the mohawk well with heavy hold hairspray and allow to dry well.
  2. Create legs and feet and lizard tongue while the hair dries. Create two legs/feet by bending both ends of each of two green pipe cleaners into the shape of feet. To create the tongue, cut a pink pipe cleaner in half and curl one end in the shape of a spiraled tongue. Bend the opposite end of the pink pipe cleaner into a hook shape to hook onto the hair when inserted.
  3. Once the hair has dried, insert the legs through the mohawk where lizard legs would be. Insert the tongue into the front “nose” of the lizard and hook on the hair inside so it will stay in place.
  4. Spray the “lizard” part of the hair with the green temporary hair color.
  5. Use the spiking glue to glue googly eyes onto the head of the lizard and allow to dry well.

The Surfer and the Wave

This is another great style for a longer boy’s cut. Longer hair on top creates a better “wave” effect. Everybody’s surfin’ now!

Materials

  • Hair spiking glue (we love got2b Glued and purchase it at Target, but it’s available at most grocery or beauty stores)
  • Firm hold hairspray
  • Blue spray temporary hair color
  • Blue pipe cleaner or other wire
  • Surfer Lego or other ocean toy (sharks, fish, or other beach toys work great for this wave hairstyle, so work with what you have!)
  • Hot glue and glue gun

Directions

  1. Create a “wave” hairstyle by a slightly off-centered, curled mohawk type hairstyle. Allow the style to dry well.
  1. While the wave hairstyle dries, prepare the ocean item that will be the wave by hot gluing a pipe cleaner to the toy. Cut the pipe cleaner shorter and create a hook shape at the end to hold onto the hair inside the wave.
  1. After the hairstyle has fully dried, spray all of the hair with blue temporary hair color.
  1. Insert the ocean toy into the wave hairstyle and hook the pipe cleaner around hair inside the wave. Spiking glue can also be used to help secure the item onto the hairstyle.

Crazy Colored Spikes

This is another great style for longer hair and is easily customizable with whatever color(s) you can find.

Materials

  • Hair spiking glue (we love got2b Glued and purchase it at Target, but it’s available at most grocery or beauty stores)
  • Firm hold hairspray
  • Colored spray temporary hair color (any color combination you like!)

Directions

  1. Create spikes with an even amount of hair in each section all over the head using spiking glue.
  2. Spray each slime well with firm hold hairspray and allow to dry well.
  3. After the hairspray has dried thoroughly, spray each spike with the desired hair color spray.

Pigtails and Pom Poms

This hairstyle is great for kids with very fine, soft hair. Our son’s hair had grown longer than normal and this style worked perfectly for his soft, fine hair that wouldn’t have spiked very well with a lot of product in it.

Materials

  • Small rubber bands
  • Hair spiking glue (we love got2b Glued and purchase it at Target, but it’s available at most grocery or beauty stores)
  • Pom poms
  • Goggly eyes
  • Any other light craft item such as pipe cleaners or sequins that can be pasted onto the hair

Directions

  1. Create several pigtails by looping or twisting hair in small sections with small rubber bands.
  2. Glue Pom poms, sequins, googly eyes, or any other small craft items onto the hair with spiking glue.
  3. Twist pipe cleaners or other craft wire into the hair for a little extra creative flair!
