    Costume: Eleven from Stranger Things

    Get the Look: Natural Hair

    1. For those with naturally blonde hair, use a taupe hair mascara or a taupe eye shadow to create a slightly darker root.
    2. To create the soft waves, use the T3 Whirl Trio with the 1-inch straight barrel attachment. Wrap the hair horizontally for 5 seconds and then let the curl drop.
    3. To finish, brush out the curls with your fingers and spritz with hairspray.

    Get the Look: Wig

    1. Dampen the wig slightly and wrap big sections around your fingers. Pin the curl.
    2. Next, use the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer on the low heat setting to dry the pinned up curls.
    3. Once dry, take the pins out and brush out the wave.
    4. If needed, you can darken the roots as indicated in the initial step.
    5. Finish with hairspray.
