How To Do A Big Puffy Bun Bear Ear Hairstyle… Thing

This week’s video is a tutorial on how to do some puffy bear/Minni Mouse/whatever you want to call it ears ^_^

The new video set up is quite fun to film in but the natural light coming through the back can make lighting very frustrating. It changes as the sun reflects off different buildings making even white balancing annoying. I love it so much but because of that I don’t think I’ll be able to film there often >_< Now I need to work out where I can film that’s not going to be effected by the stupid windows. Who knew having natural light would be a bad thing in this situation! (I can hear James saying “I told you so!”)

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!

Bear Ear Hairstyle Instructions:
Time for another hair tutorial.
Today I’m doing something a little bit different.
This style is pretty out there but also pretty versatile.
I’ve seen some people calling it Minnie Mouse ears, others calling it bear ears, others calling it big double bun ear thing… ok that one was just me but that’s not the point.
Either way let’s get started.
First off, separate you hair into two sections and pin away your fringe.
So tie you hair up into really high ponytails like this.
The higher they are, the higher your ears will eventually be.
I find that this style is easiest to do if you’ve already straightened your hair first.
Straightened hair is just easier to get to sit the way that this hairstyle needs to.
These ears we want to be really big.
So once you hair your hair in the ponytails, pull them upwards and then tease around the base.
The teasing is what’s going to keep it all together eventually so you won’t have any weird gaps.
When I fold it like this you can see what I mean.
Without the teasing it would still work but it can be a lot harder to get a completely even gap free finish.
But if you do prefer not to tease your hair it’s definitely still possible.
After you’ve done the teasing give it a quick blast of hairspray to set and then grab another hair band.
Pull it over the ponytail and again depending on how stretchy your hair tie is.
Then only pull the ponytail half way through so you’ve got a big poufy bit sticking up now.
Grab the end of the ponytail and wrap it around the base.
What you’re doing here is obscuring the band.
Of course the ends of my hair are pink so it just makes it more obvious but if your hair is all one colour it works a lot better.
Fluff out the loop that you’ve got.
You can see because it’s teased it all stays together.
Fluff it out and pull the hair right around to the middle so it’s covering the band and forming a complete circle.
Then just pin it in place.
Now you just need to repeat on the other side. Tease at the base, hairspray, use a hair tie to form a loop.
Wrap the ends of the hair around to hide it.
Pull it around so it forms a huge bun and pin as many times as you need to.
Pretty cute!
As far as bear ears go, there are actually two versions of this.
A huge puffy one like this and a little one which is a little less crazy.
So if you want me to do a tutorial on that version let me know in the comments.
Once you’re all done with that all you need to do is give the whole thing another spray with hairspray.
Maybe add some cute little accessories and if you’ve got a fringe just style it as you would normally.
All done!
And pretty damn cute if I do say so myself.
That’s one gigantic puffy ear of some kind!
Lottie was super annoyed that I stole her favorite toy for filming this tutorial so she had to come and let you know what I jerk I was.
Here’s a very public apology, I’m sorry Lottie… I’m not really.
So whether you’re using this as bear ears, Minnie Mouse ears, I don’t know, squirrel ears or just big cute poufy buns, it’s really easy to do.
Hope you guys enjoyed this video, make sure you check out the blog post linked in the description for heaps more tutorials and if you enjoyed this video don’t forget to subscribe, like, comment, favorite or whatever you want to do.
