5 Hairstyle Costume Ideas for Halloween

Halloween is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking of ideas for your costume. While this Halloween might be low-key when it comes to festivities, it doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy the spooky season with a fun costume. There are plenty of easy costumes you can do just by changing up your hair!

Pumpkin Bun

This pumpkin bun, also called the “bun-kin,” is a super cute take on a classic costume. To achieve the look, simply pull your hair up into a ballerina bun. Spray the bun with temporary orange hairspray to colour the pumpkin. Last, add a leaf hairpiece (you can assemble this by gluing fake leaves onto a hair clip) at the base of the bun to create the illusion of a pumpkin stem.

Rosie the Riveter 

If you’re looking to channel someone powerful this Halloween, Rosie the Riveter is a great and easy costume to put together. Gather a large section of the hair above your forehead (in the shape of a triangle) and pull the rest into a messy bun. Curl the isolated section of hair and hold it in place with hairspray. Finish the look off with a red bandana, red lips, and a matching jean jacket.

Joe Exotic/Tiger King

Inspired by 2020’s most talked-about reference? No Joe Exotic costume would be complete without his iconic mullet. If you already have blonde bangs, just pin the sides of your hair behind your ears and hold it in place with temporary black colour hairspray. If you don’t have bangs, clip-ins work just fine. You can hide the variation between your natural hair and the bangs by wearing an old baseball hat.

Medusa

This versatile costume works for almost any hair type. If you have long hair, separate sections into ponytails, braid and wrap them into a bun, and secure in place with pins. You can also leave your hair down or half-up and styled with voluminous curls. For short hair, just pin up the ends. Once your desired style is achieved, weave in small toy snakes. For dramatic effect, complete your costume with temporary gold colour hairspray.

Bride of Frankenstein

This iconic look is achieved with the help of a two-litre soda bottle. Cut the bottom piece of the bottle and take a small section of hair from the area where you will build the cone shape. Twirl the section into a bun, pin it down, and place coke bottle overtop. Slowly gather up the rest of your hair (except for two pieces on both sides) over the coke bottle. Pin and spray the hair into place and finish it off with temporary colour to turn it black. Finally, curl and spray the two remaining pieces with white temporary colour and pin them back.
