Halloween is just around the corner. Most of you might be busy thinking up ideas on what look to go for this year’s Halloween festivities. Creativity can go a long way when it comes to conceptualising your Halloween costume to ensure that you can stand out at your Halloween party.
Whether you are looking to go for something unique or iconic, there are a lot of ideas worth trying. Here are some of those hairstyles that you can base your costume ideas off of:
Pink and Goth
If you would like to go for hairstyle that will surely catch everyone’s attention at a party, the Gothic look is the way to go. You can go for pink hair paired with black makeup (particularly around the eyes to produce a hollow effect).
To create this hairstyle, you must apply hair wax or hairspray to give it shape and volume. Then, apply a colouring powder to give that sticky pink colour. But if you do not like to use colouring powder on your hair, you can always buy a wig.
Eerie with Hair Net
There is something so sexy and mysterious about putting net over your hair. Thus, this kind of hairstyle makes a perfect choice for Halloween. The addition of net over hair gives it a haunting, unsettling look.
To do this hairstyle, gather your hair and tie it with elastic band for a ponytail. Flip head upside down so you can put on the hair net. This particular hairstyle works best for medium-length hair.
Start creating their hairstyle by prepping hair with a styling mousse. Use a blow dryer and work your hair using the fingers. Part your hair at the center but make sure that the strands are loose. Take out a curling iron and start working on a section of your hair. Clip the section of hair in the curling iron for about 20-30 seconds before sliding it off. Repeat on the remaining sections until done.
Use your fingers to run over the ringlets you’ve produced. Refrain from using a brush or comb or else you will lose all of the waves you’ve had. Hold the hairstyle in place by spritzing a bit of hairspray.
If you want to be in character this Halloween, this is another fantastic hairstyle to try! This hairstyle is recommended for naturally curly hair.
Start by pulling out hair to form a ponytail and bringing it up to the crown. Make sure to loosen the hair strands along the hairline. Tie hair in an elastic band to secure it. Then, gather the ponytail and twist it upward. Use bobby pins to secure the ends of the ponytail. Take the front section of the hair and bring it toward the twisted portion of hair. If there are a few tendrils falling off, then let it be.
Must-Have Accessories for Halloween Hairstyles
In reality, there is no need to go all-out with creating a hairstyle and makeup for the Halloween. Adding accessories can go a long way to achieve the look you want. Here are some accessories that you might already have at home that you can use for creating your desired hairstyle:
Hair Net – It is rare to see nets used on hair these days. However, it makes perfect sense for Halloween hairstyles. As noted above, using net above your face or on the hair can give it a mystifying effect that is perfect for the Halloween.
Makeup – Hairstyle is not enough. You can use your makeup to complete the look you aspire for this Halloween. Properly placed artistic accents can make or break your look, no matter how elaborate your hairstyle may be.
