Fun Halloween Hairstyles That Don't Need a Costume

By Admin

With face coverings being required in most public places, you may be thinking that this Halloween is going to be a bit boring. After all, your makeup options are a bit limited when half of your face is hidden behind a mask. That’s no problem at all! Just turn your attention to your hair. Here are some fun Halloween hairstyles so cool you won’t even need a costume.

Cat Ears

Going as the ever-popular Halloween black cat this year? With cat ear buns you’ll get a much more realistic effect than you would with a cat ear headband. Hair is parted down the middle and flexible curling rods are used as a form to shape two cat ear buns, one on each side of the top of the head. If your hair is not naturally black, a bit of temporary black hairspray will fix that. Add some dark, smokey cat eye makeup and the look is done. Don a long-sleeved black top and black leggings for a complete costume.

Lion’s Mane

If you are a curly girl, this Halloween is your time to shine! Don’t tame those curls. Fluff them up to create a lion’s mane! Complete the look with a cat ear headband and a bit of contouring with a tawny colored bronzer and some cat-eye liner. If you will be in a venue with no mask requirement we can take it a step further with a cute black nose and whiskers. No natural curl? Don’t worry, we can fake it. We’ll use a small-bore iron or set your curls with rollers to create your curly mane.


All you need for this look are some rubber snakes. If you’d like some temporary color that can be applied first. Then the hair is twisted into several small messy buns over the whole head. The rubber snakes are then weaved in to finish the style. Glimmering silver snakes will give the biggest wow factor. Can’t find any? Some plain black snakes and a can of silver spray paint should do the trick. Just make sure the paint is completely dry before your appointment. Complete the look with sultry dark eye makeup with mesmerizing silver glitter on the inner third of your upper lid. Black lip liner and a metallic pewter lipstick will create an alluring look that will freeze anyone in their tracks.
