The Hermione Granger Braid:

Let's begin with one of the most iconic characters, Hermione Granger, and her signature braided hairstyle from the movies and books. This hairstyle exudes intelligence, elegance, and a touch of wizarding charm just like her. As we all know, she was the brightest witch of her age and surely enough her hairstyle depicts just that. 

If you want to achieve an intelligent and elegant look like that, then do this. Start by parting your hair down the middle and braiding each side tightly. Once both braids are complete, wrap them around your head like a crown, securing them with bobby pins tightly. This hairstyle works best with longer hair and is perfect for a formal event, office parties or a cosplay gathering. You can always pair it with an elegant gown at a wedding or party too.

The Fleur Delacour Veil:

Channel your inner Beaux Batons Academy student with a mesmerizing hairstyle inspired by none other than Fleur Delacour. Fleur was the embodiment of grace, simplicity and timeless beauty. Her flawless performance and courage were admired by all. And her hairstyle surely added a touch of elegance to it. Let's try to make this hairstyle.

This ethereal look is achieved by gently curling your hair and creating a loose half-up, half-down style. Then, attach a delicate lace or tulle veil to the back of your head, allowing it to cascade down your flowing locks. This elegant hairdo is ideal for weddings, proms, or any special occasion where you want to feel like a part of the wizarding world just like Fleur on her wedding day. 

The Luna Lovegood Colored Streaks:

Embrace your quirky side with a hairstyle inspired by the whimsical Luna Lovegood. Luna was weird, mysterious yet amazingly cool and smart. She had knowledge of so many unknown creatures of the wizarding world, that everybody that she was just bluffing. But in reality, she was just a simple person who saw everything in plain sight. If you want to achieve her mysterious look, try this.

To achieve Luna's colorful streaks, use temporary hair chalk or semi-permanent hair dye in vibrant shades like pink, purple, or blue (you can use colourful hair extensions too). Apply the colour to small sections of your hair, focusing on the lower layers for a subtle yet eye-catching effect. This hairstyle allows you to express your individuality and adds a touch of magic to your everyday look.

For a more vibrant look, you can just use colourful hair extensions of different colours to simply try this hairstyle without actually colouring your hair.

The Draco Malfoy Sleek Style:

For those who prefer a more refined and sleek look, take inspiration from the confident Slytherin, Draco Malfoy. Draco exudes simplicity, charming nature yet something that sinister he hides beneath his elegant face.

This hairstyle is all about precision and polish. Start by straightening your hair until it is smooth and sleek. Create a deep side part and comb your hair neatly to one side, tucking it behind your ear. Use a lightweight hairspray to keep it in place, achieving Draco's signature refined style. This sophisticated look is perfect for formal events or when you want to make a statement with your hair. You can use sleek extensions or wigs to create this one too.

The Bellatrix Lestrange Wild Curls:

Tap into your wild side with a hairstyle inspired by the wicked and unpredictable Bellatrix Lestrange.

She was bold, confident, mysterious, and evil to a large extent. She resembled fear, darkness, power, and strength of mind. Her single-minded devotion to the dark lord was unbreakable and remarkable too. If you want a look that represents devotion, strength, and courage, try this.

This look embraces natural curls or waves and adds an untamed touch. Apply a curl-enhancing product to damp hair and let it air dry or use a diffuser to enhance your natural texture. For a more dramatic effect, create additional loose curls with a curling iron. Finish with a texturizing spray for a messy yet bewitching hairstyle that captures Bellatrix's chaotic essence. Or you can simply use a curly hair extension or wig to make this look within minutes without any heat damage to your natural hair.

The Newt Scamander Textured Top Knot:

Step into the shoes of the magi zoologist Newt Scamander with a hairstyle that reflects his adventurous spirit. He was carefree, kind, and patient by nature. Yet he was really brave and strong too in his ability to fight the wrong. For achieving such a look, try this.

Begin by texturizing your hair with a sea salt spray or dry shampoo to add volume and grip. Gather your hair into a high ponytail, leaving out a few face-framing strands. Twist the ponytail into a messy bun, securing it with bobby pins. Allow the loose strands to frame your face, giving you an effortless and rugged charm reminiscent of Newt's character.

The Cho Chang Floral Crown:

Embrace the romantic and delicate beauty of Cho Chang with a hairstyle adorned with a floral crown. Her charmingly feminine style and elegance are what sets her apart. For such a look, try this. 

Start by curling your hair to create loose waves. Then, select an assortment of small flowers, such as daisies or baby's breath, and weave them into a crown or hair vine. Secure the floral crown with bobby pins, placing it gently over your head. This hairstyle is perfect for outdoor events, garden parties, or even a whimsical date night.

The Severus Snape Sleek Low Ponytail:

Capture the essence of Severus Snape's mysterious and enigmatic character with a sleek low ponytail. Snape represented hidden love and guilt along with the above to see right from wrong. His demeanor was almost always serious. For such a look, try this.

Begin by straightening your hair to achieve a smooth and polished look. Create a deep side part and gather your hair at the nape of your neck. Secure it with a hair tie, ensuring it is tight and sleek. For an extra touch, take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie to conceal it, securing it with a bobby pin. This hairstyle exudes sophistication and is perfect for both casual and formal occasions.
