The Hobbit Hair Tutorial – The Dwarves

Balin: 00:40 Dwalin: 01:20 Oin: 02:11 Gloin: 04:23 Ori: 06:23 Dori: 08:11 Nori: 12:01 Bifur: 13:32 Bofur: 14:50 Bombur: 15:23

The three main dwarves are missing from this video, and that’s because they have their own tutorial here! —

This is a more expedient sort of explanation, so if you aren’t already familiar with the techniques, look them up on youtube or my other videos, where I explain things more in depth. This video is just quick because there are ten hairstyles to cover.

Here’s a challenge – create a group cosplay or Halloween costume where each person if a different dwarf and uses one of these 😉

Difficulty: Easy-Hard
Hair Length: at least shoulder length
Materials: several small hair elastics, bobbypins, hair beads
Skills needed: English braid, lace braid, French braid, Dutch braid, five-strand braid
Time cost: 5-40 minutes
ideal hairtype: any

    Strange thing, on the miniature of the video (before I click on it) it seems to me you have another hair style like 3 french braids, am I crazy or is it just a mistake I made? XD

    You remind me very much of Ginny Weasley. 🙂 Also, amazing tutorial! I think your hair is very similar to mine, so these styles should work for me.

    This is perfect! As our final project for drama me and my friends are making a working 6 foot tall puppet of Dain on his war pig/battle boar and we want to all be wearing dwarven braids when we present it. Thanks for this, I've been officially appointed group hair stylist and with this behind me I should not disappoint! 😀

    Where did you get the beads you used in the Dwalin hair, if you don't mind me asking? I've looked for hair beads in stores but I can't find any. Love the video by the way!

    Hey! I love how you edited this video. It was really helpful by putting a spot in the beginning for people to click on so we can just go to THAT specific hairstyle. That was super smart because that is so frustrating when I want to copy a style, I see the time where it starts in the comments…and I SKIP IT! GAAAAAAAAH! The links in the beginning are so helpful (except, of course, they never work on a Sigh. That is always sucky.)

    I love how you've mixed hard styles, easy styles, intricate, plain, and styles that can be used on all types of hair. I'm just starting to get the fullness back in my hair thanks to Nioxin (thank you lupus for taking that) so I'm really excited to start trying some of the longer ones when my hair starts getting fuller! Right now I think I'll stick with the more simple ones!

    I hope school has been going well for you!

    Thank you so much for these tutorials. It gives me ideas on what to do with my long hair. I know you don't have bangs, but could you give me pointers on how to accomplish some of the braids that start at the temple? I have bangs with long hair and am still trying to figure out how to accomplish them.
