Running out of ideas for how to dress this Halloween? Or do you need some hairstyle inspo for your costume? We all know that getting ready for Halloween means prep from head to toe — from the clothes to the makeup to the hair. Grab some hair ties, bobby pins and your chosen hair tools — it’s time to get crafty!
Glittered Space Buns
It’s completely out-of-this-world. Part your hair in the middle, creating two sections and leaving some tendrils to frame your face. Make two high buns and wrap a section of your hair around the base, and then secure it with an ample amount of bobby pins. Finally, spray on some glitter hair spray like the IGK Pre Party Sprinkle Hair Strobing Glitter Spray where your hair is parted and you’re done!
Got some time and a lot of patience for this? Call a friend who can help you out with this intricate braid. Spritz on some heat protectant spray before blow-drying your hair to add some volume. Then arm yourself with loads of bobby pins — the 36-piece Guardian Basic Bobby Pins in Black will do — and get to braiding. Finish it with some fun elements like faux seaweed or small seashell paper cutouts for a picture-worthy 'do.
All Spooked Up Pin-Up
This takes some teasing and curling and a whole lot of arm work, but the finished product is quite amazing. With bobby pins and some strong-hold hairspray like the Percy & Reed Surprisingly Strong Extra Hold Hairspray, re-do this spiky spider swirls yourself. You can achieve the slime green colour by buying hair extensions, temporary hair dye, or a wig for some added pizzazz.
Cute Devil's Horns
Ditch the plastic headbands for something more intricate. Create two ponytails at the very top of your head using thick hair ties, leaving some strands that you leave down and curl with the Dyson Airwrap Styler Smooth + Control. The hair ties will help form the shape of the horns as you wrap your hair around them. Spray some hairspray to keep it all in place and secure it with some bobby pins.
This simple half-up, half-down ‘do is perfect for an angel Halloween costume. Fittingly enough, this braid is called Angel’s braid. Comb through your hair thoroughly, untangling any knots with a big paddle brush (try the GHD Paddle Brush) before starting on the braid. Loosely curl the hair left down and insert some pearls or other accessories to add some interesting details.
