When Disney first provided us with photos, long before the movie came out, we knew it would be a challenge that my daughters and I could meet!  We tried hard to keep the style true to form, and you can now see this style on Disney.com and the DisneysStyle YouTube channel.

Here’s how to get Vanellope’s deliciously-edible hairstyle…

You may need some bobby pins with a flat head and mini jaw clips.  You then can hot glue the candies and fake peppermints onto the flat heads, so they stay firmly in place in the hair.

Hairstyle Steps:

  1. If you have bangs, part them to one side and straighten them to frame the face. {If you don’t have bangs simply pull all your hair back into the ponytail.}
  2. Create a high ponytail.  You simply comb all the hair up to the top of the head and secure with an elastic…
  3. Tease the top of the ponytail to add volume and fullness…
  4. I tied the licorice around the ponytail holder and cut the ends short enough they stuck up a little, as seen in the movie and photos.  Also you may want to use some red fluffy yarn instead of licorice, depending on whether you want to use real licorice in your hair and humidity…
  5. Now… have fun accessorizing the hair with an assortment of your real and/or fake treats!

Items Needed: Brush, comb, hairspray, rubberbands, and lots of treats or craft items.  Some of the items we used included a 2-foot Pull-n Peel Twizzlers licorice rope, for the signature hair tie.  We also used Spree candy, scrapbook pop-up dots, peppermint candies {fake}, candy buttons, etc. Flat-head bobby pins, hot glue gun.

Time Requirement: 10-15 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Enjoy!

Happy Hairdoing!
