How to Achieve Narcissa Malfoy Hair
Getting Narcissa Malfoy’s hair color will require you to go black on top and white underneath. You can take it a step further by opting for her clavicle-length cut and sideswept bangs. For the hue, you should ask your colorist to go as white as possible underneath. While Narcissa’s hair is jet black on top, you can always opt for a brunette shade if you’re not ready for the deep hue. Remember, a picture’s worth a thousand words so always remember to bring two or three as a reference for your colorist.
If you already happen to have jet black hair, you can fake the look with clip-in extensions. Even testing the style out with a wig beforehand could help determine if you’re really ready to go all-in with this style.
Things to Know Before Getting the Color
Before you book your appointment, know that this color is pretty high-maintenance. You’ll want to schedule routine sessions with your colorist to ensure the black stays black and the white stays white. It also may take a few sessions for you to achieve Narcissa-level hair, depending on what color you currently have.
Though the style has most often been seen on those with straight hair, it can also work for curly hair. Do know that it will look a bit different on curls than on straight hair, but it’s still achievable. And don’t forget to make it unique. There’s no one way to get this hair color so have fun with it.
