Curled Hair

When considering hairstyles for Halloween, curled hair is a classic that never goes out of style. Curls can suit any costume from 80’s rocker to beachy mermaid. Spray on some thermal protection spray and use a curling wand to get your desired look in minutes. For a heatless option, put rollers in damp hair and let them dry to achieve full curls with no damage. For beachier waves, use a crimping iron (don't forget your heat protectant!) to achieve looser, tousled waves.

Slicked Back Bun

Take your normal bun to the next level and add a stylistic twist to your Halloween hair. Whether you're going for supermodel or a scary vampire, a slicked back bun can be an easy way to finish your look. All you need is gel, bobby pins and some hair ties. Start by creating a middle part and put the loose hair up into a ponytail. Wrap your hair around the hair tie and secure it with bobby pins to create a tight bun. Slick back your front sections with gel to create the ultimate, locked-in bun.

Space Buns

Why settle for one bun when you can have two! Space buns can be styled into ears, antlers, or out-of-this-world antennas. Start by dividing your hair into two even sections and put them into two high ponytails on each side of your head. Take each ponytail, wrap it around itself to create a bun and secure it with an elastic. For even more fun, use household objects like pipe cleaners or wire to give your hair a funky shape that will take your costume to the next level.

Colorful Hairspray

Our last Halloween hair idea is for those who want to try out a new hair color for the night, temporary, colored hairspray is the way to go. If you want to dress up as someone older, white or gray hairspray can age you with no special effects make up needed! Or you can try out that hair color that you can't bring yourself to fully commit to. The opportunities are endless with colorful hairspray.
