In honor of the upcoming spooky holiday, we thought it would be fun to round up some of the best Halloween costume ideas and their hairstyles. After all, Halloween is the one night (maybe there’s a few for some of us) each year that blondes become brunettes, long hair becomes pixies or you can rock bright blue hair with a cupcake bra.
Here are our favorite Halloween costume ideas and the great hairstyles that go with them.
The Tinker Bell Bun
Tinker Bell has become one of Disney’s most iconic characters and the “symbol of ‘the magic of Disney’”. There’s a legend that Tinker Bell was actually inspired by Marilyn Monroe, but other shave said it was actually after Margaret Kerry. Regardless of who inspired her, this blonde haired, blue eyed fair is a Halloween favorite. With green fairy costumer, pixie dust and slippers, her signature bun is essential to the costume. Here’s how to get it:
The Lions Mane
Let’s be honest, the cat is a go-to Halloween costume. It’s cute, simple and affordable. While some of us opt for the domestic house cat look, others choose the king of the jungle. If you’re going as a cat, make sure that your mane is as wild as your inner lioness. This hair tutorial brought to you by Lauren Conrad’s Beauty Department is the perfect hair for Halloween.
Sandy from Grease
“Tell me about it, Stud!” Is there a better excuse to slip on some skintight leather pants, red high heels and leather jacket to dress up as the sultry Sandra D from Grease? In the last scene where they’re dancing and singing at the fair, Sandy couldn’t look hotter. Her big curly blonde hair couldn’t look better. If you’re looking for a fun, simple and stunning costume then you can’t go wrong with this. You can opt for a wig or recreate the look at home.
Bride of Frankenstein
“He’s alive! Alive!” There are few things more iconic when it comes to spooky and creepy than Frankenstein. If you’re looking for something a little more feminine than the creature created from an unorthodox scientific experiment then opt for his beautiful bride. Dr. Frankenstein who tempted fate created her once again by creating a suitable mate for his monster. This hair is seriously awesome. It might require a wig or a trip to the salon to recreate but it’d be well worth it.
Flapper Girl Hair
Another go-to costumer is the timeless flapper girl look from the roaring 1920’s. Whether you’re being Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gastby or you just found the perfect costumer and now you need the perfect hair to match, you can’t go wrong with the 1920’s finger curls and headbands with feathers of gems. If you have long hair, this is the perfect excuse to rock a faux bob and try on shorter hair for the night.
Faux Bangs for Halloween Costume
This one is a little more vague but we had to include it because vintage faux bangs are perfect for a variety of outfits. And they’re the prefect excuse to really change up your look. Whether you’re going as a pin-up girl, Zooey Deschanel, Rockabilly, Lucille Ball and more, you can rock this hairstyle.
