Halloween is just around the corner and you’re probably wondering what hairstyle to use to go along with your creepy get-up. You’re probably wishing that you bought that wig last time you hunted for a costume online but the thing is, you don’t really need to spend a lot just to be able to spook your family and friends. A little bit of DIY on your part will definitely help you complete your Halloween look just in time for a bit of scary fun.
What can a few braids, bobby pins, and rubber snakes do for your hair? How about transforming your mane into Medusa’s slithering hair? This is definitely one of the easiest get up you can do this Halloween and won’t take a long time to finish too.
For those who are opting to dress up as a mermaid this coming Halloween, a good hair style to complete your look is the cascading waves. Start by applying some mousse on your damp hair before blow-drying. Tousle your hair while you are blow-drying then part your hair at the center. Use a curling wand then wind a section of the hair away from the face. You don’t need to clamp your hair hard but let the wand heat it up for 20 to 30 seconds before releasing. Run your fingers through your hair once you have curled the rest of your hair to complete the mermaid look.
Another fun Halloween hairstyle that you can do is to transform your hair into a bird’s nest. Simply make a thick braid out of your hair and pin it in a circle around your head to create the nest. Add some fake eggs and your bird plushie to complete the look.
If you are a fan of the medieval era, Halloween is the best time to wear that costume you’ve been keeping in your wardrobe. Complete your medieval maiden look by tying your hair the medieval way. Start by working a golf-ball dollop of mousse on your dry hair then tousle it afterwards to create volume. Gather the strands of your hair over one ear and braid loosely. Secure the end with an elastic band.
How about a little blast from the past this Halloween? Make a half moon on your hair from one end of the eyebrow to the other side then tie it off. Pull the remaining hair on a high pony tail. Pull your hair through your hair tie twice and on the third, leave a few inches inside the hair tie. Wrap the remaining hair around the base of the pony tail and secure with bobby pins. Use hair spray to keep your bun in place then on to the bangs. Bring your bangs down while combing the sides to ensure that you are holding all hair strands. Wrap them in a curling iron and roll towards the roots of your hair. Release your hair while slowly releasing the iron clamp. Pin the roll of your bangs with bobby pins. Tie the scarf around your hair afterwards to complete your look.
