Hey guys, we are back with another fun HALLOWEEN HAIRSTYLE or CRAZY HAIR DAY idea for you today! Depending on your Halloween costume, this eyeball bun would be perfect to go with a scary / creepy costume…. or with a funny / cute costume. I could see this hairstyle working with many creative and unique DIY costume ideas actually: A monster, zombie, witch, robot, alien, sea creature, swamp creature, etc. Or if you don’t want to go “all out” dressing up, or aren’t allowed to wear a full costume to school, you could just wear the eyeball bun by itself! We were thinking you could wear this bun and go as a “mom” because moms have eyes in the back of their heads, and those eyes would probably be bloodshot lol.
Eyeball Bun Hairstyle, Video Tutorial: (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)
As shown in our tutorial, we started with a standard donut bun or sock bun, and it really doesn’t matter how you make it, you just need a “roundish” bun to start with. We have several videos and different methods on our YouTube channel already showing how to make these buns. You can look at our donut bun playlist to see if there is one that would work for you.
Supplies needed to recreate this Halloween Hairstyle:
- We used the “perfect bun” tool (affiliate) to make our bun, which can be found online or in stores.
- You could also use a donut bun maker (affiliate.)
- 2 medium size hair elastics or hair ties.
- Several bobby pins
- Hairspray or gel
- We purchased our plastic eyeball and pipe cleaners at the dollar store, but I also found some online here: Plastic eyeballs (affiliate) and here: Pipe cleaners (affiliate.)
- Hot glue gun
(If you don’t have a bun maker tool, you could actually just use a rolled up sock with the toe cut out, or you could make a standard bun by wrapping your hair around the top of a ponytail and pinning it in place.)
Of course, if you would rather make 2 eyeballs on the back of your head, you could start with pigtails instead. Or, you could stack 2 buns vertically, like a faux hawk.
Happy trick or treating!
