An easy, no hair spray required Whoville hairdo for girls!

When Dottie came home with a note saying the school was celebrating Whoville hairdo day the following week, we were excited.

Thanks to Pinterest I found the inspiration I needed.

Choices were narrowed down to a cute, cup in the hair, hairdo or an elaborate, over the top, hair-spray doused Whoville personified hairstyle.

Our excitement peaked!

We couldn’t wait to do a Cindy-Lou on her hair!!

However, on the morning of the big Whoville day, her excitement waned when she realized there would be quite a bit of hair spray involved. She refused to be held captive under a cloud of hair spray but wanted to go to school with a Whoville hairdo.

And with shoulder-length, straight, silky hair, there was no way her hair would stand the wrath of staying upright for 7 hours, without any hair spray.

With time ticking fast, I had to come up with something, so I grabbed all the dark brown hair-bands I could find (we didn’t have enough black bands!) , 2 pink bow hair clips and a black ribbon and came up with this…

We didn’t need to use any hair spray, her hair stayed upright and I could even shape the long hair horn to tilt a bit, bend over forward or just stand upright.

Sure she didn’t look like Cindy-Lou but she was happy to go to school with her unique, little Whoville-do.

In the end that’s all that matters right?



    1. I should have clarified to dress up like Cindy Loo Hoo. Not for a fashion statement!

      1. Oh I’m glad you added that. I honestly thought you’d dress up like Cindy Lou ‘coz she had an “in with the times” hairstyle! ((Whew!))

  1. Unbelievable–that must have taken quite a while to accomplish–By the way-I agree with your daughter–NO HAIR SPRAY!!!!!

    1. It actually took less than 20 minutes to “band up” and add the ribbon + hair-clips. We had no other option considering we were fighting the clock!

  2. Necessity the MOTHER of invention ??!! Well done so that Bunny Girl could go with her own unique Who-ville hairstyle minus hair-spray…I like it that she has her own mind 😉

  3. So, so silly!! I wonder what sorts of looks Id’get from my boys if I were to do this, hehehe!! Oh it would be priceless!

  4. That is so cute! My daughter would love it if I did here hair like this. It’s great that you were able to figure out a way to do it without all the hairspray too, very creative! I don’t think I would have thought of that.

  5. Haha! I love it!! The teens in my hubby’s youth group will stick a bottle in their hair and style it up when they’re bored on the way home from trips. But yeah, stay away from that icky hair spray! LOL! Good job, Mama!

  6. Oh my goodness! That is SO cool! My girls all have short hair but I know they’d LOVE to do something like that if they could.

  7. I used a cup in my hair once when I was a child. I dressed up as the Bride of Frankenstein. 🙂


  8. For next time: We used to use a mixture of Elmer’s glue and hair gel to get our liberty spikes to stand up. (I was really cool,okay?) The hair tie trick is freaking awesome and I totally understand making due with what you have. But glue works great, and it washes out no problem because it’s specialized for kids’ crafts!

  9. Those hairdo’s are really pretty and your models are beautiful indeed.
    I don’t know how to do hairdo for myself and I think I need to learn from now on.

  10. I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours today, but
    I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you probably did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
