Deciding on the perfect costume to charm or spook at your Halloween party can be tricky, but one of the most important elements of your look is your hair. The way your hair is styled is just as important as the way you are dressed and is often the key in pulling the entire look together. In fact, so many costumes are iconic because of their character’s hairstyles. If you’re opting out of purchasing a costume and are creating your own, then your hair plays an even bigger role.

Here, our iconic hair picks, from looks as intricate as the Bride of Frankenstein to as simple and glam as Beyonce’s long braid.

 

Bride of Frankenstein

The Bride of Frankenstein is infamously known for her signature big, teased, and knotted-looking hair with a long white patch of hair on the side. Deciding to go teased and out of control or polished and pristine is completely up to you.

Wednesday Addams

Becoming Wednesday Addams this Halloween is a whole mood in itself. Part your hair down the middle and braid hair it two pigtails for Wednesday Addams’ signature look. All that’s left is to find an all-black outfit and a white collared shirt for your iconic DIY costume.

Flapper

Dressing as a flapper for Halloween is all about the hair and the perfect headpiece. A simple ribbon or glamorous headband wrapped around at the top of your forehead will instantly take you back to the 1920s. Gorgeous smooth and vintage looking curls pull this entire costume together. Don’t forget your pearls and flapper dress!

Ice Queen

Feeling cool this Halloween? Transforming yourself into an Ice Queen depends on how glam you want to go. To achieve an Ice Queen’s hair start by spraying your locks with temporary silver or white color hair spray that will create that frosty look you want to achieve. Finish by teasing your roots for volume, and adding a crown.
