Halloween Hair Tips & Tricks

Alicia Boal


Halloween is almost here and it's time to start planning your look for a spooktackular night!  Here are some fun do it yourself ideas to really complete your look.

Simple, Fun Hair for All Agesspider

Take the sock bun to the scary side with an addition of some pipe cleaners, a pom-pom and some googly eyes!  Simply create a bun, we recommend the sock bun or using a donut bun accessory, then bend eight pipe cleaners to resemble spider legs.  Insert into bun and secure with bobby pins.  For the spider body, glue the eyes on thekids hair pom-pom, flip over and glue a bobby pin or two onto the back.  Do this the day before to ensure the eyes and pins are secure, then simply insert in the center of your bun.  Or, take plastic rings (sold at most party and Halloween stores) and apply them to braids as shown for a festive, fun look!  Eeeeek, that's scary cute!

 Classic, Iconic Hair

Sometimes the hair is so iconic that it essential to capturing the character. Without the upswept french roll and baby bangs, you'd just be a girl in a black dress and pearls and not Holly from Breakfast at Tiffany's! And with out the teased waves standing on end with the classic white side stripes the Bride of Frankenstein would not be hair raising at all!  This look  requires some back-combing (learn the proper bridetechnique here) and lots and lots of strong hold hairspray.  We recommend Redken Control Addict 28.  Then just add in some white hair paint and you're ready to do the monster mash all night!



Accessorize Yourself

Simply add shells or sea stars for a unique look!
