An easy Medusa costume guide for fellow "Muppet heads". This post was originally written for the My Curlifornia Blog in 2017 by me, Kk =)
Looking for a Halloween costume that'll show off your amazing mane?
Look no further than the woman who's had everyone talking about her hair for over two thousand years... Medusa.
With my new favorite hair product I was able to create a modern take on Medusa's famous mane in just four simple steps!
For those that don't know, My Curlifornia is an amazing beach hair treatment that I've been using since June. It's the only hair product I use now (I used to use three to four products daily!) because it perfectly tames and relaxes my crazy "muppet hair".
It detangles my knots, leaves my hair smelling like starbursts, and makes it unbelievably soft to the touch. I'm also starting to suspect that it's making my hair grow faster (my trips to the salon seem to have become more frequent).
You can watch my original My Curlifornia tutorial/testimonial video I made this July by clicking here!
Materials that you'll need for Medusa hair:
2. A pack of 12 rubber snakes
3. 12-15 bobby pins
Four steps to Medusa hair:
1. Wash and condition your hair like normal.
2. Apply My Curlifornia to wet hair. Let it air dry for a more natural "jungle girl" look.
3. Separate your hair into three different sections. Use bobby pins to pin rubber snakes into the two lower sections of hair.
4. Untie your hair from the three sections so it's all loose together.
Optional: Twist two pieces away from your face and pin them in the back to give a few snakes something to wrap around.
Super easy costume, right? You don't even have to glue the snakes onto barrettes or a headband! I had fun twisting the snakes around different pieces of hair to really bring them to life as well (especially around my face!).
If you're looking for a more challenging costume I encourage you to play around with your Medusa makeup. Does your Medusa vision include scaly eyebrows? Gold accents?
What about a full face of scales?
If you dare to recreate this Medusa look, tag #MyCurliforniaMedusa so we can see!
Happy Halloween everyone! -Kk Antoinette
