If you’re a fan of the spookiest night of the year, it only makes sense to do it up right! One of the best ways to show your Halloween spirit is to revamp your hair color. Not sure where to start? Here are some hair color ideas to get you started!

Fairy Rainbow Hair

Fright night is the perfect night to embrace your light and airy side. And there’s no better way to do it than with fairy rainbow hair. It’s all about pastel pinks, blues, yellows, and greens. If you’re thinking that it’s not appropriate for the season, remember that Halloween is all about being who or what you want to be. And if you want to be ethereal and magical, this hair color option is the way to go.

Your options aren’t limited just to fairies, either. Here are some other options:

  • A Unicorn

  • A Clown

  • A Mermaid

The Blues

Want to go with a fashion color that’s sure to make an impact? Choose blue hair of any shade. From light pastel blue to deep jew-toned blue and even dark denim blue, you’ve got lots of possibilities. Here are a few costumes to consider with blue hair:

  • Thing 1 or Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss

  • A rocker chick

  • Joy or Sadness from Inside Out

  • A mermaid

  • Emily from Corpse Bride

Tasty Candy Corn Hair

Candy corn is one of the tastiest parts of Halloween - if you’re a candy corn enthusiast, put it on blast with candy corn hair! It features shades of yellow, orange, and blonde in any formation you want.

You can do an ombre with yellow ends, orange middles, and blonde roots, or you can do tri-color bangs and leave the rest of your hair its normal color. It’s all up to you. 

You can wear this hair color with an orange or yellow witch costume, or you can let the hues stand on their own.

Green is not a hair hue you’d see every day, but it’s a big hit for Halloween. And we’re talking all shades. The hue makes a huge statement and is associated with some of the most well-known and loved characters. If you go with green for Halloween, here are a few characters you could pull off:

  • Beetlejuice

  • The Joker

  • Green themed clown

  • Tsuyu Asui

  • Sailor Neptune

  • The Grinch

Silvery Gray/White Hair

Silvery gray or white hair are both great for Halloween. You can go completely silver/white or incorporate streaks or ombre as you desire. These colors work for most every skin color and can be used to top off some of the most iconic looks, including:

  • Marie Antoinette

  • Cruella

  • Storm from X-Men

  • Daenerys Targaryen

Fiery Red Hair

If you need something that’s a little more wearable but still a lot of fun, consider fiery red. It makes a huge impact regardless of your costume choice. Go with highly-pigmented true red, a more muted copper or auburn, or anything in-between. Here are a couple of great costumes to pair with fiery red hair:

  • Fiona from Shrek

  • Thumbelina

  • Raggedy Ann

  • Harley Quinn
