I borrowed one of my daughter’s to do this tutorial for how to do Missy from Doctor Who’s hair. This is specifically for season 8.
Granted, my daughter’s hair and my own are past our waist, but this technique will work for shorter hair too. This will also work on wigs but with wigs, you can use glue or even sew the hair into place.
|Start with well-combed, tangle free hair.|
|Separate the hair into 2 sections, a top section and a bottom section. Use clips to keep them separated until you work with them.|
|With the top section held securely, either braid the bottom section or make it into a small French Twist. I usually do my own as a French Braid and wrap the tail around. Add any product you wish to use to hold up at conventions, photoshoots, or other events.
To make the hair higher, I also use a small rat. I purchased mine from LBCC Historical Apothocary & Cosmetics.
Ooops! I forgot to take a photo of her hair with the bottom section done, but you can see what I did in the photos below.
|Once the bottom section is done, take the top section out of its clip. Start taking small sections of hair, starting from the front, and begin making loose pin curls. This is where you’ll want to add product too.
And somewhere in there, you’ll want to add another poof or hair rat for height. Missy took her clothing from the Edwardian era and they loved big hair.
