Halloween Hairstyles

Curly hair halloween hairstyle inspiration.
We are fast approaching the spookiest night of the year, Halloween! So take a seat and prepare yourself to read some frighteningly good (hair) tricks and treats that will have you scaring peoples socks off when they see you. Mwohahaha!! I honestly love Halloween, it is one of my favourite holidays of the year. I always look forward to the toffee apples and costumes and events that come up this time of year, especially now I am older. As a kid from a religious family, I wouldn't celebrate Halloween, so I didn't go trick or treating or dress up as anything other than an Angel (for All Saints Day). The most exciting thing I would do was sit in front of the television and watch Halloween Town, which I still watch religiously every Halloween.

Seeing as I never used to dress up, I was at a bit of a loss for what to wear this year, usually I would just put on some cat ears and call it a day, but as with everything, I really wanted to incorporate my curly hair.

Hey Arthur!

Halloween Hairstyle

Your hair will act as the cute ears for Arthur in this look. You can make this as easy or as complex as you want too, depending on your skills.

For the easy version, you will start by parting your hair down the centre of your head. You want your Arthur ears to sit towards the front of your head, about an inch or two closer to your forehead from the crown of your head. Now, taking some gel you are simply going to take one section and brush your hair to the right place on your head and secure tightly with a hair band. Then take the hair and create a medium/large sized messy bun to create the illusion of ears on the top of your head and repeat for the other side.

For the complex version, you can switch it up by cornrowing your hair up to the crown of your head to create ears. You want to part your hair down the centre and part your hair to two sides. I flip my hair upside down to make this easier and I cornrow as straight as possible towards the crown of my head. Continue to cornrow an inch past the crown of your head and then brush the remaining hair at the front to meet this cornrow and fasten your hair with a hairband. Once you have done this, take your hair and twist it into a medium to large but to create the impression of an Arthur ear and then repeat for the other side.

You must wear some glasses if you can find big chunky ones even better!

Queen Of Hearts

Halloween Hairstyle:

To create this look, make a zig-zag parting down the centre of your head splitting my hair into two equal sections. Using a temporary hair colour like the Colourista Hair Makeup in the colours red and black, colour half of your head red and the other half black to make my hair look really distinct and vibrant.

Once these have dried in, brush my hair up into two high side ponytails. Then parting two small sections across the front of your head I will plait my hair leaving two plaits either side of your head as pictured below. Then using an eyebrow spoolie and some Edge Control Gel to brush your baby hairs forward and swirl them to mimic the photograph.


Halloween Hairstyle

Medusa's snakes for hair is iconic, so the hair is what makes this look. Although there are limited examples on the internet to show how this hairstyle would look, it is something you could easily achieve if your hair is already styled in locs, braids or twists. What you need are some accessories, you can either buy a snake headband, snake hair clips or a pack of rubber snakes. If like me, your hair is not in one of the above styles, you are going have to take an hour out to sit down and plait your hair. If you choose to buy rubber snakes (Poundland), using bobby pins fasten a few to some of your plaits, twists or locs so that it looks like your hair is snakes.
