Frozen 2: Elsa and Anna's New Hairstyles (And Tutorials)
by SHOPIFY API / NOV 18, 2019
We are literally just four days away from the premiere of Frozen 2 in cinemas —we’ve only waited six years for this (not that we were counting or anything). The ice queen and her adorable sister won the hearts of girls and women worldwide back in 2013, and admittedly, we’ve been copying and recreating the Elsa braid ever since.
While we can only judge from the trailer, we know that Disney has changed up Elsa and Anna's hair in Frozen 2. There are some new Frozen-inspired hairstyles in the movie that we will all be trying until the next sequel (Anna’s new do being a personal favourite). Here are our top favourite hairstyles from the Frozen 2 trailer – and how to get them (cosplayers rejoice).
In Frozen 2, Anna’s look has changed – her signature two French plaits have been swapped for a more mature half-up half-down hairdo. The look is completed with two smaller braids pulling back her hair that frames her face. Anna is a confident and admirable young woman, and her new-do is fierce and shows just that.
To get this look, make sure you have waves in your hair, perhaps use hair extensions, tongs or wet and braid your hair the night before for a heat free method. Take a small section of your hair from just above your ear from both sides and braid each section to the end. If you have thin hair, stretch the braided hair for it to appear thicker. Now take one braid from either side and follow the curve of the crown at the back of your head to the other end and pin it in place. Take the other braid, follow the same curve and pin it in place on the opposite side. Adjust the hair above the braid to complete the look.
Elsa’s New Loose Style
Queen Elsa also has a new do – her white-blonde hair is tied back, with the tail falling loosely down her back, for a pretty but glam, laid-back style. She uses her own hair to secure the loose low ponytail, leaving just a few tresses to frame her face. The hairstyle is chic yet practical. Channel glam ice cool in this style.
First, put all your hair back into a ponytail at the bottom of your face, leaving a few strands at the front. Use a flat hairtie to secure your ponytail so your hair doesn’t bulge. Take about half an inch of your hair from the ponytail to wrap around the base of your ponytail. Wrap the hair around the base of your ponytail until you’ve reached the ends, making sure all hair is neatly wrapped around or hidden under your ponytail. Now use a bobby pin to hold the hair, and voila! Your Frozen 2 Elsa hairstyle is ready.
Elsa’s Signature Braid
Yes, we said new, but is it really Frozen without Elsa’s signature braid? If there’s any image that conjures up Frozen immediately, it’s Elsa’s voluminous French braid. The style is not only perfect for a chic everyday hairstyle, but it can also be an alternative to traditional glam up-dos.
