Fairy tales conjure up images of glamour and whimsy. Dressing up to look like a fairy tale character includes having the perfect hairstyle to go with the costume. Some fairy tale characters have distinct, memorable hairstyles that can be recreated, and other common fairy tale characters have looks that allow for more creativity and interpretation.

Goldilocks Pigtails

The most distinct feature about Goldilocks was her blond hair. Some images show her with curls swept back in a headband to match her dress; others show her with two pigtails tied with ribbons that match her dress.

Mermaid Waves for Ariel

Ariel is known for her long, thick, wavy red hair. Mermaid waves can be achieved with curling irons that have the waving plates attached. Hair should be parted on the side and waves added from the crown of the head to the ends.

Long, Loose Curls for a Princess

Many fairy tale princesses have long, loose curls in their hair. A ribbon or cloth headband is often worn to match the character's dress. A tiara may be added to this look depending on the costume. Curls can be created with a curling iron or set on rollers to create longer lasting curls.

French Twist for Cinderella

Cinderella's most glamorous look is when she goes to the ball and meets Prince Charming. She is wearing a ball gown, and her hair is swept up in a glamorous French twist with a ribbon headband to match her dress. This look can be achieved by rolling the hair into a French twist and securing it with hair clips. You can also add a headband to match the dress.

Buns with Face Framing Tendrils for Tinkerbell and Fairies

Tinkerbell and other fairies often have buns with curled tendrils framing their face. To create a fairy hairstyle, brush hair back into a ponytail using an elastic hair band. Twist the ponytail into a bun and secure with hair clips. Using a curling iron, create some face framing curls along the hairline to complete the look.
