Harley Quinn. She’s the ass-kicking, baseball bat-wielding, former psychiatrist brought over to the dark side by Batman’s worst nemesis, the Joker. One of the most popular DC Comics characters, Harley Quinn was featured in this summer’s hottest blockbuster, Suicide Squad.

Played by the ridiculously beautiful Margot Robbie, her look is deceptively cute with funky colored bunches, bright and mismatched eye makeup –  and a shedload of scary attitude. But you don’t need a team of Hollywood hair stylists to create this look when we’ve got the (equally gorgeous) Miss Alex on hand with a fantastic video to show you how to harness your inner supervillain – and look fabulous at the same time!

So before you begin your quest for world domination, get your stuff together!

You’ll need

  • Clip-in hair extensions (Alex has gone for 20 inch extensions in shade 613)
  • Curling wand or iron
  • A brush
  • Fine toothed comb for backcombing
  • Hair ties to secure your bunches
  • Hair chalks in pink and blue
  • An old towel
  • Pink and blue eyeshadows
  • Eyeshadow brushes for applying and blending

All set? Let’s do this.

Make your bunches

First things first, get your hair extensions clipped in. If you’re new to clip-in hair extensions don’t worry, we’ve got a great video from Alex on the blog taking you through all the steps you need to follow to clip them in like a pro. Just hurry back, OK?

Once you’ve clipped in your extensions, give them a good brush through so they’re nice and smooth. Now, take your comb and trace a line up from the tip of your nose right to the crown of your head to create a perfect center parting.

With your hair split into two sections, take the hair on your right and pull it up into a high ponytail on the side of your head to make your first bunch. You’ll want to place it a bit higher than you would think, as they’ll fall down slightly as you chalk and curl them later. Secure the bunch with a hair tie – you can go for blue and pink ones to really get into the look – and repeat the process on the other side of your head so you have two high bunches.

Using your comb, pull out some strands of hair from around the front of your face to frame it, then tuck them behind your ears for now so they’re out of the way while you chalk the hair.

Chalk it up

Grab your blue hair chalk and place a towel over one shoulder. Now, apply the blue chalk to the tips of your bunch, taking the chalk about half-way up it. You need to gently rub the chalk down the length of the hair it to make sure you get good coverage. It can help to brush out the hair occasionally as you go. This helps separate the chalk and lets you spot any bits you might have missed.

Once you’ve finished applying your blue chalk to one bunch, take your pink chalk, move your towel over to the other shoulder, and repeat the chalking and brushing on the other bunch.

Give it some volume

Now it’s time to give your bunches a bit of extra oomph. Bring them to life by taking your curling wand and curling the ends. To do this, just wrap strands of hair around the wand, or iron, hold for a few seconds a release. Super easy. When you’ve finished curling, gently brush through the curls or separate them with your fingers.

Now up the volume with a bit of backcombing. Take your comb and gently push up against the ends of your bunches to make them more voluminous.

Alex’s added extra

If you want to steal Harley Quinn’s whole look, you’ve got to go for the eyeshadow as well. Alex shows you how in her video and it’s a great way of really capturing the style of Harley Quinn.

First apply a light pink shade of eyeshadow on the lid of the eye on your pink side. Then apply a darker, hot pink shade into the crease of your lid.

For the other eye, apply a light blue all over the lid and then choose a darker, blue for the crease. Keep the look subtle by blending your eyeshadow well with a blending brush.
