How to make the disney belle hairstyle

Updated February 21, 2017

Belle is the main character in the movie "Beauty and the Beast." She has two main hairstyles. Her ponytail hairstyle is seen during the beginning of the movie as she is walking around town in a blue dress. Belle's half-up do hairstyle is seen when she has dinner and dances with the Beast in his castle. Both hairstyles can be used for anyone who wants to dress up as Belle.

Pull hair into a low ponytail and secure. Pin back hair as necessary.

Take pieces from the front of your hair and let them frame your face a bit. Only do this if the front of your hair is short enough.

Tie a large blue ribbon around your low ponytail at the secured site.

Part dry hair from ear to ear leaving a section of hair in the front.

Pull the rest of the hair into a high-ponytail.

Take the front pieces and twist them at the back of the head. Tie them together under the ponytail. If the hair is too short to bring the front pieces back, pin them back as far as they will go.

Roll up a piece of nylon or other flexible material and place it at the base under the ponytail (this will create volume in the bun part of the hair). Bring hair over this to cover the nylon.

Take a gold bracelet or something not flexible and place it around the hair (and the nylon underneath) to secure it in a bun shape. If it wont hold, secure it with hair clips.


Both hairstyles can be done to look fairly loose.
