Halloween hairstyles: Our top picks

Halloween presents us all with an excuse to play dress up. If spooky monsters aren’t your style, take the opportunity to dive into your favorite fantasy characters. Here are our top picks if you want a look that lets your hair take center stage:

Space Person

Space buns are a popular style regardless of whether it is a special occasion or an ordinary day. The look can be created with a half-up, half-down style, or fully up as with pigtails. Likewise, they can be messy buns or ones that are neat and polished. To spruce up the look for Halloween, add a fun space themed headband or spritz the buns with a silver-colored temporary dye spray. 

Nature Fairy

If you’re looking for a fun Halloween costume that isn’t too over the top, consider a nature fairy. This look focuses on incorporating the beauty of nature while also summoning your inner goddess. Simply adorn a simplistic, earthy colored dress with a pair of wings for the outfit. For the hairstyle, rock your natural texture and add in a few sprigs of baby’s breath or your favorite flowers. Hair in need of some TLC to pull this look off?

Horns are a crucial part of many Halloween costumes, from devilish divas to Disney villains. If you are looking for a way to showcase your locks while incorporating horns, look no further than two simple buns. Part the hair evenly down the center as you would if making two pigtails. Secure the pigtails and then proceed to wrap the hair around the elastic until you have sculpted “horns”. Pin the hair in place with bobbi pins and then spritz with your favorite hairspray.

Mermaid Waves

Mermaids are one of the most popular mythical creatures. Known for being beautiful and mysterious, a mermaid costume is a solid choice for Halloween. Whether you opt for a Disney interpretation or a more realistic rendition, you can’t go wrong with a sequin-adorned skirt. To complete the look, add a crown of mermaid waves. While wavy locks may seem time-consuming, they can be created by simply braiding your hair the night before you plan to wear your mermaid costume. For an extra special touch, add a touch of seafoam green temporary hair color. 

Unicorn Queen

Another popular Halloween look for those who prefer a cuter twist is a unicorn themed costume. We recommend a sassy unicorn queen style. You can create a “horn” by securing a centered ponytail and then sculpting it into a horn or you can incorporate a series of pastel colors into a long, wavy style. For the clothing, you can slip into a rainbow, pastel-colored dress or you can go with a more literal interpretation.
