With everything that goes into perfecting a Halloween costume, isn’t it an added bonus when your hair is one thing you can leave off the to-do list? Wigs can be expensive and tough to master, and colored hairsprays can be extremely damaging. Thankfully for all of us brown-haired babes, we’ve got some killer options! Keep reading for a list of the best Halloween costumes for brunettes.
Kim Kardashian West at Her First Met Gala
If you’re a brunette and you’re itching to be KKW for Halloween, you’re in luck! The mogul has sported literally every hairstyle and (almost) every length, so regardless of what you’re working with, there’s a look you can emulate. That said, some of the starlet’s style moments are much easier to pull off than others. Case in point? Her first Met Gala look simply calls for a long floral gown with a slit, a long, middle-parted pony and a cushion for that baby bump! While certainly not one of Kardashian West’s wildest fashion statements, it’s surely one of her most memorable.
Betty Boop is a longtime Halloween classic. Show a little leg and some cleavage, all while still keeping it classy. No one will ever shun a BB on Halloween! As long as you’re not opposed to the color red, this costume is easy to knock out of the park.
Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour Album Cover
Calling all our luscious, long-haired brunettes! If you’ve got time for a quick trip to Michael’s, your Halloween costume could be set. Celebrate the breakout star of 2021 with an ode to Olivia Rodrigo’s chart-topping Sour album. And prepare to stick your tongue out all night.
Perhaps not the most out-of-the-box costume, Princess Jasmine is a tried and true foolproof option. Variations of the costume are easy to find, and you’ll get to have a major hair moment.
Squid Game‘s Kang Sae-Byeok
A list of the best Halloween costumes for brunettes wouldn’t be complete without a nod to Squid Game. Not only do you avoid rocking a full face of makeup or a done-up ‘do, but you’ll also get to hop on the biggest TV trend of the moment. Celebrate the star of Netflix’s hit Korean dystopian drama with this extremely low-effort look.
There’s no question Snow White has been done before, but with makeup and accessories, you can totally make the costume your own. We love the flower headband this Instagram user incorporated into her look. And you can’t forget your apple!
Witches are obviously one of the most common Halloween costumes each year, but no two witches look the same! The idea of dressing as a “sexy witch” is one of our favorites because it gives you an opportunity to play up your assets, while also being able to wear much of what you have lying around in your closet.
