It’s that spooktacular time of the year again! Halloween is right around the corner, which means it’s time to plan your costume. Did you know you can create a wickedly good Halloween costume with mostly just a great hairstyle? Whether you’re looking for a more subtle costume you can wear at the office or find yourself in a last-minute pinch, these hairstyle-inspired Halloween costumes are sure to be a hit this year.
The latest season of Stranger Things is sure to inspire a lot of Halloween costumes this year, especially the beloved character Eddy Munson. This fun, no-fuss costume is easily achieved by creating that classic 80s metalhead hairstyle. Simply curl or wave your hair and then tease it out for a grungy, headbanging feel. Finish it all off with a vintage band t-shirt and denim jacket.
Do you have a skirt or old school uniform in your closet? If so, who better to dress as this Halloween than the Queen of Pop herself? To recreate her iconic schoolgirl look from the “Baby One More Time” music video, just part your hair in the middle and braid both sides into pigtails. Adding fuzzy scrunchies can also help take this costume to the next level.
Why buy your costume when you can create the look of devil horns using your own hair? Divide your hair into two sections at the front. Then place a hair roller on either side and wrap your hair tightly around each of them in the shape of a point. Feel free to use all your hair or wear it half up depending on your length. Hold it all in place with bobby pins and hairspray.
The 90s are back in style, and Halloween is no different. Pay homage to the iconic 90s horror monster by teasing and spraying your hair with temporary neon green hairspray. And don’t worry if your hair doesn’t look perfectly styled or in place. The messier your hair looks in this case, the better!
Pumpkin or Strawberry Bun
What if your hair was the costume? Transform your hair into a strawberry or pumpkin by tightly pulling your hair into a bun and spraying it with temporary colour hairspray. For a more polished look, glue fake leaves or stems onto hair clips and strategically place them around the base of your bun.
