One style we see paired with a plethora of costumes each year is waves. Costumes like mermaids, sugar skulls, witches, and the notorious Mad Hatter all call for them.

The best thing about waves is that they come in various sizes. If you want to be a mermaid, you’d likely go with loose waves. If you want to be the Mad Hatter or Hatress, you might opt for tighter waves.

Crown Braid

For some, Halloween is all about the spookiness. But for others, it’s about the fall season in general. If this speaks to you, try a crown braid and dress it up with fall-themed hair accessories like leaves or small pumpkins. And if you’re feeling super daring, pair the braids with a fun Halloween hair color or two and you’ve got a look worthy of stares.

Long and Straight

If you haven’t yet come up with a costume idea for Halloween, you need a hairstyle that’ll work for just about any getup. Long, straight hair is that style. It can be dressed up or down and accessorized in countless ways. Just know that if your hair isn’t naturally straight, you’ll need to either straighten it or go with some extensions or a wig for the spooky day.

The Mohawk Do

When you want to get galactic, there’s only one style to go for - the mohawk. It’s equal parts stylish and unique and gives you everything you need to make an impression others won’t ever forget. Mohawks may take many forms, but the quintessential one has two braids going down either side of the head. The rest of the hair is free and ready for you to mold into your distinct look.
