Hi my name is Claire Coleman. I'm a hairstylist and I'm going to show you how to do your hair like Dorothy Gale from "The Wizard of Oz." The first thing we do is we part the hair down the middle from front to back because it's going to be a look that has two braids on each side. So just take something with a tip that you can easily part the hair with and just go all the way back to the nape of the neck. And I like to just swoop the hair over to each side just to make sure that it's out of the way. And then we're going to start the look up front. We're going to take a small section and we're just going to pull a little bit away from the head and we're just going to twist it. So keep twisting that and you're going to get a cute little roll right there and then you're just going to keep bringing in pieces as you go towards the back of the head and just keep twisting it in. So twist, grab a section and you kind of want it to follow along down behind the ears. So just keep grabbing section as you go and then we're going to secure right here with a clear elastic and then you're going to do a three strand braid from here. And you're just going to take your front section, fold it over the middle take your back section and fold it over the section that you just had and just keep doing that, about halfway down the hair and then you're going to tie with another elastic. Dorothy likes to have ribbons in her hair so this is where you would place a ribbon as well and then you're just going to take the hair into a couple of sections and use a curling iron and just curl the ends a little bit. There we go and then we're just going to repeat on the other side, there we go. My name is Claire Coleman. I'm a hairstylist and I just showed you how to do your hair like Dorothy Gale from "The Wizard of Oz."
