Halloween is right around the corner! We all know that person who has been planning out their costume since January, but we understand that many of you will be rushing at the last minute to pull off the perfect Halloween costume ensemble. It can be tricky to find the balance between having a show-stopping look and not wanting to spend eight hours on your costume. Most of that time ends up devoted to your hair and after all that work, it may not even look like how you envisioned it. Have no fear! Here are five inspired hairstyles that look good and are easy to do.
Wednesday Addams has become an icon when it comes to Halloween. She’s the perfect mix of spooky and funny. The best part about Wednesday is that she’s one of the easiest looks to copy! Part your hair down the middle and add those two signature braids, and you’ve just become one of the most recognizable icons in Halloween culture. If you’re feeling like you want to complete the Wednesday look, add some white base for a pale look. Your dark eye makeup against your pale skin will help you embody the creepiness that is Wednesday Addams.
The Amazon Braid
The 2017 “Wonder Woman” film brought back everyone’s admiration of Diana Prince and her popularity is not going away anytime soon. Costumes of Wonder Woman have gone up after this latest movie release. With this being only the second Halloween since the latest Wonder Woman graced the big screens, people are still looking to dress up as the famous Amazonian princess. To help stand out from the others, substitute those famous beach wave curls for the braid that Diana wears at the beginning of the film. Just put your hair in a fishtail braid and you look like Wonder Woman in beautiful Themyscira.
Want to take your Wonder Woman look even further? Get your nails done! There are so many designs to choose from when Diana Prince is your inspiration. Have fun coming up with your own nail patterns!
Web Your Hair
Wonder Woman isn’t the only comic book character coming back into the spotlight. Spider-Man’s re-introduction to the Marvel Universe has led to a fresh take on Peter Parker that people can’t seem to get enough of. Like Diana Prince, you can expect to see an increase of people dressed as everyone’s favorite web-slinger. Why should you be like everyone else and hide your hair under a mask when you can incorporate Spider-Man’s famous logo into your hair? Shaving designs into your hair is gaining popularity and there no better time to try it out than at Halloween. Unlike the other hairstyles on this list, we recommend going to a salon to shave your hair so you can avoid any unforeseen complications.
The best part about the Spidey look is that you don’t need the logo to look Halloween ready. Undercut shaving is all the rage now. With the spider web design, you’ll be in the Halloween spirit in no time!
A Rey of Hope
So many attempted the famous Leia buns and failed. With Leia being the only main female character from the “Star Wars” franchise for years, parents were forced to battle their daughters’ hair in an unrelenting war to get the buns to stay in place. Once you got those buns to finally stay, chances were they wouldn’t last very long. Well, not anymore! With the introduction of Rey people were finally given a Star Wars hairstyle that could be replicated. All you need to do is add the three iconic buns and you’re suddenly from a galaxy far, far, away.
Colors of Your Hair
Are you not much of a costume person, but still want to get in on the Halloween fun? Don’t worry! There are other ways for you to channel an inspired movie look. One way is to color your hair. This is great for anyone who just doesn’t have the time or energy to get a costume together. This inspired look from Disney’s “Pocahontas” is perfect for anyone eager to add multiple colors in their hair. We love that people are turning Halloween into a fun way to try out new looks. Like the Spider-Man hairstyle, we suggest going to a hair salon to avoid any color complications. Coloring your hair is a complex process, especially with multiple colors. Make sure that your hair is being properly cared for.
