Quick Answer

For crazy hair day, students can consider pom-pom pigtails, a mermaid-inspired look, braided ribbons, a mohawk or even a braided mask. Students may want to add color to make the hair even crazier. They should first check with the school's policy on dyed hair to ensure that regulations are followed.

Pom-pom pigtails may be the easiest crazy hair look to achieve. First, the hair should be dampened with curling spray or gel and allowed to air dry. Then, the hair is pulled up on either side of the head into two high pigtails. The "pom-pom" look comes when the pigtails are scrunched and deconstructed.

The mermaid look is also easy. The hair is first gathered up into a high ponytail, then bobby pins are used to make large, loose curls. Tendrils of hair are allowed to escape from the sides. Accents in this zany hairstyle include seaweed, small starfish and pieces of fishing net.

Braided ribbons and a braided mask both start with simple braids. To braid ribbons through the hair, simply place the ribbon on one of the three pieces of hair in the braid, then braid as normal. A braided hair mask involves intricate braiding and twisting, but can be accomplished with lots of bobby pins and hair spray.

A mohawk is easy to achieve with styling gel, hair spray and a large paddle brush. This helps the centerpiece of the style stand straight up.

    How do you make your hair grow faster?

    A:

    According to Marie Claire, hair can't technically grow faster than its natural growth rate. However, there are ways to facilitate hair growth, such as massaging the scalp to stimulate the follicles. Taking vitamins can help the hair grow at a healthy rate. B vitamins make the hair stronger, and deficiencies in vitamins, particularly biotin, can slow hair growth.

    How long does it take plucked hair to grow back?

    A:

    The exact length of time it takes for a plucked hair to grow back depends on an individual's hair re-growth cycle. Typically, plucked hair takes at least two weeks to grow back, and, in certain cases, re-growth occurs within four to six weeks. Hair plucking is typically performed with a pair of tweezers, and the hair is pulled out of the follicle at the hair root.
