13 Halloween Costumes Perfect for Any Hairstylist

Halloween will be here before you know it, so we wanted to share some of the best Halloween costumes for hairstylists we found around the internet.

Not only are these costumes all sorts of creative, they’re relatively easy for any hairstylist to recreate or even purchase.

Keep scrolling to find the perfect costume for you!

Edward Scissorhands

Edward Scissorhands is arguably one of the most well-known “hairstylists” around. This costume never goes out of style, so you can find it online anywhere. Or, you can attempt to recreate it yourself with the tools you already own.

When life doesn’t give you a backyard, build one in your basement instead 🛠 (SWIPE to see the behind the scenes!) The first “set” I ever created by myself for a photoshoot was for my Edward Scissorhands look on Halloween 2017. My backdrop was a $15 piece of fencing that I bought at the hardware store and returned the very next day, my costume was made from an old leather belt, and I’d never really styled my hair before in my life. Since then, building new worlds from secondhand objects and becoming new people has become my passion, with each project becoming even bigger and more elaborate than the last – and this October, I’ll finally be sharing shoots with you that I’ve been working on for over a year, as well as all the witchcraft that went into making this Halloween the most haunting yet! Any guesses which special series I’ve put together for spooky season? 💀 P.S. If you want a sneak peek at everything I’ve been creating as well as access to exclusive Halloween prints before anyone else, I’ve been sharing all the progress of my Halloween projects over on my Patreon! (Link in bio!) FACE: @nyxcosmetics Honey Dew Me Up Primer, @makeupforeverofficial Ultra HD Foundation in "100", @lunatickcosmeticlabs Pro Contour Book, and @Sugarpill "Ice Angel" to highlight. Scars are done with the contour book and a White Concealer. EYES: @sugarpill "Dollipop" and "Bulletproof" to shade with "Ice Angel" on the lid and inner corner. LIPS: White Concealer as a base with @sugarpill "Dollipop" and "Bulletproof" HAIR: the most hairspray I've ever seen and a prayer. Also @arcticfoxhaircolor "Virgin Pink". #halloween #halloweenmakeup #halloweencostume #cosplay #edwardscissorhands #timburton

Beauty School Dropouts

Another pop culture reference, this one comes to us from the movie musical Grease. Be the beauty school dropout you never got to be this Halloween. And if you were one, at least you can take this time to poke a little fun at yourself.

Your Favorite Product

Have a favorite product you can’t stop raving about? Embody it for Halloween. Become what you love for the occasion.

Moroccan Oil Gift Bags

Perhaps you’re a fan of everything Moroccan Oil makes? Grab an orange tutu and plenty of tissue paper to turn yourself into one of their colorful gift bags.

Pulp Riot Hair Colors

This creative batch of stylists dressed up as various Pulp Riot hues. Honestly, it’s genius. And a really fun way to get everyone at your salon in the Halloween spirit, so long as you remain socially distanced of course.

Every Hairdressers’ Worst Nightmare

Go a little bit creepy this year by dressing as every stylists’ worst nightmare—black box dye. This costume will require some craft, though we don’t doubt you have plenty of it.

Nightmare at the Shampoo Bowl

We did not come up with the name for this costume, but rather lifted it from the caption on this post. Not only is this costume an easy one to pull off, it’s incredibly clever and fun.

The ‘I Told You to Stop Moving Your Head’

Let this be a lesson to all those clients who won’t heed your warning. They’ll end up looking like this if they can’t sit still.

Attacked by an Angry Customer

We love costumes that require little to no effort. Getting the eye makeup right may take a minute or two, but once you’ve done it, you’ve got your costume right there on your face.

Psycho Hairstylist

Give your clients quite the fright with this costume. They may never recover after seeing you clutching a severed mannequin head, which could work in your favor.

Long Day at the Salon

This is probably what you already look like after an incredibly long day, so really not much of a costume here… only kidding.

Zombie Hairstylists

Throw on some zombie makeup in addition to what you usually wear to the salon and you’re basically all set with this costume.

A Literal Hairdresser

We think this costume is rather punny. Okay, bad jokes aside, this is a cute idea for any hairdresser out there. Simply find a way to make a dresser, then attach all your hairstyling tools and you’re good to go.
