Halloween Hair Ideas for the Spooky SeasonBONJOUR DAH-LING !… Or shall we say Ghostly greetings…

Spooky season is upon us and we’ve got some scary ’dos lined up just for you! You’ll be ready for your ‘ghouls’ night out with our top picks, and of course we’ll have you looking bad and BOOjee! It’s the first Halloween after a nightmare of a year, so we say dress up and have a “bloody” good time!

If you’re like us, you might not always be up for slashing yourself in fake blood or covering yourself up head-to-toe in an inflatable dinosaur costume. Serious props to those who do! But sometimes we want to look relatively nice because gory or completely hidden just isn’t for us.

Dah-ling, there’s a way to absolutely kill your costume this year, and that’s with these Halloween hair ideas for 2021. Your hair can complete your entire spooky look, trust us, you’ll have people screaming out the name of your character without you needing to be head-to-toe in a costume.

Check out our top styles that range from scary to cute, and always tres chic for this year’s mysterious month.

The Wednesday Adams Hairstyle

We couldn’t think of anything with such little effort to do but that comes with a massive effect! If you’re a dark-haired brunette babe then this style is for you.

Wednesday Adams wears the famous twin braids that fall down either side of her face. We can’t help but notice how smooth and sleek her plaits are, and you may think it’s impossible to achieve! Booo! Don’t give us that defeatist attitude, it’s way too easy to do.

To achieve this look start by using N4’s Smoothing Balm on your freshly washed and damp hair. Distribute it evenly and then apply 1-2 pumps of N4’s Fluoro5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil to keep flyaways down and to add that irresistible shine.

Once you’ve blow-dried your hair, add another pump of the oil and put your locks into a middle parting, then start to make 2 braids – one on either side of your head. Finish off with a touch of N4’s Non Aerosol Hairspray for a firm but not stiff hold.

Despite Wednesday’s blank and miserable expression, we know you ghouls will just want to have fun with this cute and easy hairstyle! A costume isn’t necessary, but try wearing all-black for the full effect.

Kitty Ear Halloween Hair Buns

Need a last minute costume and all of the cat ears are sold out? No problem! Creep it real with this super cute and simple hairstyle.

You can never go wrong with a cat costume. It’s not so basic when you can level it up by using your hair as the ears.

Start by using N4’s Mighty Hair Spray and Firm Hold Gel to achieve an appropriate root lift and also a sleek finish. You’re going to want to put your hair in a middle parting and use elastic bands to make two bunches, one on either side of the top of your head. Use the two products to keep your hair nice and tidily together.

Once those are secure you’re going to want to insert a flexible rod roller through the band and bend it so it makes a triangle. Start to wrap your hair around it so it’s all covered, and hairspray it as you go to make sure it firmly stays in place.

Make sure to use some bobby pins where you feel is necessary and then do the same on the other side. Finish off with another spray of N4’s Mighty Hair Spray and purrrfect! You’ll be the coolest cat on the block. We recommend adding some whiskers and a cat nose to complete the look.

Wonder Woman Inspired

Wonder woman, Wonder woman, in your satin tights, fighting for your rights!

Who said you have to dress up as something scary? Are there written rules? Because we say anything that fights a villain and wears a costume is perfect for Halloween. And dressed up as Wonder Woman, well you’ll be the cutest pumpkin on the patch!

For this, a fresh salon blowout will look best. We’ve got the best tips on how to achieve this look right here for you. Although the style takes a lot of prepping, volumizing and maintenance, it’s all worth it in the end.

Make sure you have N4’s Volumizing Shampoo, Mighty Hair Spray, and Blow Dry Lotion handy, and use your hairdryer plus a round brush to create the look. After you’ve washed your hair, do a lot of volumizing with the hairspray and brush to poof it up.

Stick on an old pair of tights and a red and blue outfit and you will look absolutely fa-boo-lous dah-ling.

If you have the time, you can even add in some extra thick vintage inspired curls.

The Lions Mane

The slightly scarier version of a cat, but a whole lot different! With a cat you’re smooth and sleek, but as a lion you’re crazy, you have a huge uncontrollable mane and you look wild!

Unleash your crazy side and distribute N4’s Blow Dry Lotion evenly on to your damp hair. This is going to give your locks hold as well as condition, and it’s the perfect base for any style you go for.

As you blow-dry it, tip your head upside down for extra volume and then spritz on N4’s Sugar Texturizing Spray. This will give you the sweetness all lions subtly have. Give your Halloween hair a good old shake and a scrunch with your hands and you’ll look bad to the bone.

This is my go to smoothing balm! I add a little to my hair and blow dry with a round brush. By the time my hair is dry it’s nearly straight and smooth, I don’t even need to run a straighter through it. I have moderately thick long naturally curly hair so any product that saves me time in the morning is a win in my book!

    I’m 65 years old and used to have thick, heavy, lovely hair; I could do anything with it. Now, like most older women, my hair is thinner, drier, and more brittle. I still wear it long, so I’ve been looking for a product that will moisturize my hair and make it more elastic, will reduce the tangling at the ends (which leads to split ends), and will restore the smooth shine that I used to have. This is it. I still blow my hair dry for styling, and it left my hair smooth, shiny, and with thicker volume without feeling sticky, stiff, or oily. It almost feels like my 20-year-old hair again. Lovely product.
