For some, Halloween is all about ghosts and goblins. For others, it’s all about having an excuse to be fabulously glamorous. Regardless of which side your Halloween costume lands on this year, there is no denying that the small details are what takes a costume from ordinary to extraordinary. While makeup can go a long way, the hair is often what seals the deal. Fortunately, if your ensemble doesn’t involve a wig, we have some suggestions on how to amp up your Halloween hairstyle.
1. Does your natural hair match your costume?
If you have jet black hair and are trying to look identical to Marilyn Monroe, a wig is probably your best option. On the other hand, if you’re going to a party as a frightful witch, those black locks should be embraced. Naturally, every Halloween costume will warrant a drastically different hair style. Consider your options and determine whether you want to sport a wig or work with your natural hair. The reasons may vary depending upon the location of the Halloween celebration, the amount of time you will need the look to last and how many Halloween functions you will be attending.
2. Do you need a specific color?
If you want to work with your natural hair, start by considering hair color. Does your Halloween character have boldly colored hair? A bright blue or fire engine red hue can be achieved using temporary hair dyes. You can get a longer lasting temporary color at Inscape Beauty Salon. If you only want the color to stay in place for a few hours or until your next shampoo, Halloween costume shops typically sell a variety of wash-out colors. Although oranges, blues and greens are prominent, you can also find sprays to imitate blondes and browns.
3. Do you need to alter the length?
You don’t have to undergo a drastic haircut in Davie, Florida to pull off a Halloween costume with your natural hair. If your look requires shorter locks, try pinning the length of your hair up using Bobbi pins. This same method can also be used to create faux bangs. If you need to add length, clip in hair extensions are easy to find—even last minute. Many drug stores sell cheap varieties if you only need them to remain in place for a few hours. If you are more committed to the look, long-lasting hair extensions are available at Inscape Beauty Salon.
4. Do you need hair accessories?
A zombie bride needs a veil and a 50’s movie star getup may require an elegant hat. Consider which hair accessories you may need to complete your look and others that may make achieving the style easier.
Be sure to try a practice run of your Halloween hairstyle before the big party or event. This will allow you to identify any changes that you need to make ahead of time. Need a cut, color or style before Halloween? Book your appointment at Inscape Beauty Salon now!
