If you don’t know who Hatake Kakashi is, you’re not watching enough anime. He’s a character in Naruto, a Japanese anime show, and he’s famous for his hair style. If you’re looking for an awesome way to style your own hair, or that of someone else, like this famed character, we have a simple solution for you. These easy tips will help you achieve Kakashi’s style at home.
What You’ll Need
To achieve this hairstyle, you’re going to need very specific hair. Anything more or less than 4 inches in length is not going to work well. You’ll also needs copious hair gel, hairspray, a brush and a flat iron. You’ll also want some gray hair color spray. To begin, you’ll want to wash your hair thoroughly.
The next step in creating this trendy look is to brush your hair well. You’ll want to then apply a generous amount of styling gel throughout your hair, spreading it evenly around. Brush back your bangs so that they lie evenly across one side of your head (you can choose the side that works best for you).
Standing it Up
The rest of your hair is going to need to stand straight up down the center of your head. This is going to take a little skill, and probably a lot more styling gel. Be liberal with the gel; don’t hold back. Stand up your hair with your hands and a brush, and use your hairspray to keep it in place. When you think you’re done spraying your hair, spray it one last time.
The final touch is to apply your gray. You’ll want to hold the can about a foot from your hair and spray liberally onto your new style. You’ll want to finish up with a headband around your head the way it’s worn on Naruto and you have the complete style.
