Braided {Kitty} Cat Ears | Halloween Hairstyles

It is always fun to create new Halloween Hairstyles!

Many fans have asked if there is any way to make cat ears using your own hair, so that you do not have to pay for those expensive pre-made cat ear headbands.

Well… yes, there is!!!

I have to give a special thanks to our CGH#4 who happily volunteered to be our model {although she doesn’t volunteer often for our tutorials}!

Braided Kitty Cat Ears | Halloween Hairstyles


  1. I began by sectioning off two small square sections of hair on either side of the middle part line, and secured them with an elastic band.
  2. For the first ear, I then took two black pipe cleaners, twisting them together, and then braided the two pipe cleaners as the “third” strand of a 3-strand braid.  Secure with another elastic band.
  3. Then, take the finished braid and bend it into a point in a spot that looks good to you, and continue on to fashion the kitty cat ear. Finish the ear by wrapping the end of the braid around the original base, which secures itself because of the pipe cleaners.
  4. Repeat the same step on the other side.

While finishing this style, we also suggest that you can use red pipe cleaners to create devil horns if you wish to be a Little Red Devil for Halloween!  Similar braiding with different colored pipe cleaners can help you create Minnie Mouse ears, puppy ears, bunny ears, piglet ears, and on and on!!!

We hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and I think that it turned out very cute!

By the way, this was my absolute photo out of all the shoot!  Little CGH#4 certainly has her own personality, and as this photo and the video point out… she does what she wants to do!  And, we are OK with that!!!

  5. I would really like a hairstyle kids can do on their own. My mum isn’t very patient and cshe’s not good at hair either. For me, some of the ‘dos’ I can’t do on myself.

    Ps: I love all the dos you do they’re so creative!

  6. Hi Mindy,

    I love to see how other moms accomplish what they accomplish each day. Any chance you’d be willing to give us an idea of how mornings go in your home to make you and all those precious kiddos look so great each day?

  7. So, so CUTE! You are so creative. Can’t show my daughter until next year, because she’ll definitely want to change her costume and I’ve already put the fake blood on the zombie gear. Happy Halloween!
