Oh My: I'm a Troll Doll People
When I saw these girls dressed up like trolls on the Internet, I knew my destiny! I ordered my bodysuit on Amazon, and started doing research on the hair. I did purchase a wig, but some of my friends were not too keen on it, so I had to figure out how to DIY it. My research led me to using egg white and gel craft glue. Both of these sounded a little crazy. So, I Facebooked an old friend who owns the Den Barber Salon. She had her Mohawk specialist give me the scoop. It worked out perfectly, here were my instructions:
OKAY... Blow dry your hair completely dry. Flat iron it out... LET IT GO WILD WHILE DOING THIS. The more volume and wild the better. THEN, Spray hairspray in while shaking your head upside down (headbanging action). Then, brush out the hairspray so it doesn't freeze funny (Depending on how fine your hair is add even more and brush again). Then, start ratting (... back combing) ALL the way to the ends of your hair in the upward motion (like a troll). Add a last thick layer of hairspray on the finished product. I suggest a colored hairspray (blue / green) that you can get at Sally's Beauty Supply.
We went to a really fun party and had a blast. I hate to say this but no one knew what I was. Is it just me or is something wrong with people? Oh well!
