If you are a true Flintstones cartoon fanatic, why not show your true pride this Halloween. Fred and Wilma make a perfect couples costume for Halloween. If you want to go the extra mile and create perfect "Wilma-like" doo with your own hair, it is actually not that difficult. You only need a few items, and relatively long hair to complete the look.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Package of red or auburn temporary hair dye
  • Large comb
  • Large bun-maker hair clip (such as Bump-Its)
  • Hair curler or long roller
  • Package of hair clips
  • Container of clear hair styling gel
  • Can of hairspray

  1. 1

    Dye your hair with the hair dye according to the package directions.

  2. 2

    Comb your hair thoroughly making it as straight as possible.

  3. 3

    Draw your hair back into a bun using the bun clip. Leave about six inches of your hair out to be curled.

  4. 4

    Using the curling iron, curl your hair in the front into a tight roll. Or, use the long roller to make a tight roll in the front.

  5. 5

    Use the hair clips to hold the hair on the side of your head in place tightly.

  6. 6

    Use the hair styling gel over the top and sides of your hair to give it a strong hold. Do not place any gel on the bun.

  7. 7

    Spray your new hairdo with hairspray for added shimmer.

Tips and warnings

  • You must have long hair to be able to do this project. If your hair is very short, then it may be best that you use a wig.
  • If you do not want to use hair dye, there are commercial sprays that you can use to colour your hair safely that can be removed with water.
  • If you want assistance with some of the steps of this project, ask your hairdresser for help. Your hairdresser may be willing to help you with everything (for a fee of course).
  • You may want to print a picture of Wilma to reference as you complete this project.
  • Be very careful with the curling iron. If you are not experienced in using one, ask a friend or family member for help. Or, use the rollers.
