This Halloween let your hair do the talking. This is the one time of year when your beauty imagination can roam completely wild. That’s because a truly dazzling costume isn’t just about what you wear— it’s about the genius hair you create to complement the outfit. In fact, if the hair is incredible enough, you don’t even need anything else!
Safety Pin Braids
Whether you’re planning on dressing up as a skeleton or just looking to celebrate the spooky season, all you need is a few braids and some safety pins. Stylist Jordan Pomeroy started with a deep part, creating two French braids from the smaller section and left the larger section to flow free. She then used large safety pins to connect the two braids from the hairline to the ends of the braids. Just be careful with those sharp points!
The Hair Bow
To create this look, start with your hair in a high ponytail. Pull your ponytail through the elastic, but don’t pull strands all the way through – leave about 10 centimeters or so out, creating a loop with the ends of your hair towards your forehead. Divide your loop into two halves, taking the ends of your hair and folding it back through the space in your two looped halves. This creates the center “knot.” Secure the ends in the bow, fluff it up, and spray with Mighty Hair Spray!
The Rainbow Faux Hawk
We can’t get enough of stylist Nico Aceves’ unique take on a faux hawk – and it’s so much simpler than spending hours trying to get your hair to stand on end. Start by sectioning hair horizontally across the head, starting from forehead and continuing down to the nape of the neck. Using a brush and Firm Hold Gel (for that super shiny, flyaway-free finish), comb each section into a tight ponytail. Once all hair has been pulled back into a single pony, attach zip ties throughout the pony. You want to secure the zip ties tightly, but not so tight that you can’t get them off at the end of the night.
