So it's spirit week at your kid's school and you have no ideas for Crazy Hair Day. Your kid, of course, desperately wants to have the coolest hair in school so here's some ideas to help you out! These are also great for Halloween and other crazy-cool events!!!

1. Color Hair with Sidewalk Chalk

For light hair: Just rub the chalk onto hair and apply a bit of hairspray to hold it in place. For dark hair: Mix a few drops of water with ground up/powdered chalk to make a thick paste. Apply the paste to hair and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Then blow dry hair on coolest & lowest setting, after which applying hairspray.

The color should wash out after one or two washings.

3. Cupcake Hair

Just put hair into two (or one) ponytails and then punch a hole in the middle of a cupcake liner. Pull the ponytail through the hole and form into a bun that fills the space of the cupcake liner. Hot glue a red pom-pom to the end of a bobby pin and pin it to the middle of the bun. Repeat on other side.


5. Transform Hair into Colored Rubbery Spikes


Just purchase a toy ball (the big kind of squishy ball that is covered in soft spikes. They can be found at Wal-Mart, Dollar Stores, as well as most other stores carrying toys) cut it open a little and stretch it around head like a swimming/shower cap. (Tip: If you cut too much, the ball may tear more throughout the day.)

7. Add Snakes for a Medusa Look

For one option, braid hair into two or more braids and pin to head. Add toy snakes by pinning them to head as well. Or else, add the snakes as part of the braid. This is a bit trickier but results in a wavy braid and a look similar to Celia from Monster's Inc.


8. Surfer Dude Look

Just temporarily dye hair blue (see #1 for an easy option) and gel hair into a Mohawk. Pin or Gel in a toy Surfer (could also add fish, boat, or other nautical toys) to make hair into a Surfing Competition!

10. Braid in Ribbon

For this look, just add a strand of ribbon to one(or more) section(s) of a braid and continue braiding! This can also be done with necklaces(For Christmas, try to find a necklace with mini lights or bells on it to braid in), fabric, shoelaces, and many other things!


14. Cindy Lou Who Look

Place a plastic cup on top of head and gather hair up around it, placing a ponytail on top of the cup. Use gel and hairspray to position hair and secure it better. Add loopy braids at bottom if wanted.
