Picking a Halloween costume is rarely an easy decision, whether you literally have no idea or you just can’t choose – we’ve all been there. But this year is going to be different. That’s because we’re showing you how to center your costume around your mane. These costumes are totally built around your hair look, so grab the hairspray and take notes—all you need for a dope Oct. 31st is already on your head.
Penny Lane in Almost Famous
Kate Hudson was with the band thanks to her soft and easy tendrils, perfect for the on-the-road lifestyle. As far as costumes go, this one is pretty do-able. It relies on kinky curls (plus a coat, so you won’t freeze your butt off). To get 70s hair without any snags, try the Beachwaver S1: $99.
Cardi B at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS NYFW party
Bloody shoes optional, this is perfect for ladies looking to make a statement and standout (without showing it all off). Center part your hair and tease for super volume. Bigger is better when going full-on Bardi—just don’t get into any fights!
Megan Markle at the Royal Wedding
This (relatively easy) wedding look is instantly recognizable, which works for us because it’s no fun to explain your costume. All you need is a tiara, veil and a blow dryer to make Megan’s up-do work for your Royal Halloween. Unfortunately, Harry not included.
Serena Williams at the US Open
Even though Serena’s natural curls are pulled back, they still make their presence known. This bun-meets-pony update is the perfect complement for a court-ready tutu.
Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Rodger Rabbit
Red hair is s-e-x-y. Whether your locks are a shocking crimson or more of a subdued strawberry, shift it to the side and conger the cartoon vixen.
Turn Back Time-era Cher
There are so many Cher’s to choose from, but the “If I Could Turn Back Time” Cher is pretty much all we’ve ever wanted in a mane, and a costume.
Khaleesi in Game of Thrones
GoT is back in 2019, which means you can keep the platinum Khaleesi blonde going for at least another two costume cycles.
The season’s bob cut will keep you covered through Halloween, when all you need to revive the flapper look is a vintage dress.
Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family
Be altogether spooky as our favorite angsty teen, Wednesday – all it takes are double braids and a ton of attitude.
