Too cool to dress as a fictional character for Halloween? Or maybe it completely slipped your mind (again) and now it’s too late to find a costume? Well, no big deal. You can still join in the Halloween fun without fussing over an outfit. You can make up for your lack of costume with cool, crazy hairstyles instead! Much easier, if you ask us. Plus, you can switch up your look as you go from one party to another!
We turn to the runways to get some weird hairstyle ideas (we all know some really strange things happen on the catwalk), and we’re happy to report we’ve got enough avant garde hairstyles to get you through this year’s (and maybe even the next’s) Halloween. Some of them you can totally DIY, others we think you’ll need help with. Let’s go from mildly crazy to all-out insane, shall we?
Crazy hairstyles to try for Halloween
1. The pyramid
Frizz has never looked so good! We’re guessing this hairstyle involves a lot of teasing and a lot of hair spray–hair spray with a lot of muscle that can keep this outrageous shape. We recommend TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray.
2. Alien bangs
3. Punky fringe
This is kinda like a combination of your emo-phase locks and your just-got-out-of-bed look. Add a little bit of styling product to make it official Halloween hair. We recommend TONI&GUY Sea Salt Spray—it’ll give you the out-of-bed texture that you need.
4. Rope hair
Sweet but definitely crazy. It’s like Rapunzel meets Rumpelstiltskin. If you’re willing to go to great lengths (literally) to nail your Halloween hair, this look is for you! Don’t forget to swing by the beauty store to buy hair extensions!
5. Poolside princess
This is where the real crazy begins. We imagine this style would be uncomfortable and annoying with all that hair in your face; but it sure is a winner in the book of crazy hairstyles. How to get the look? Jump into the pool, emerge from the water, and go about your day. Hair gel would also help.
6. Pastel dreadlocks
Who knew dreadlocks can be cute? Cute but still weird.
7. Broom bangs
Except for the part where you won’t be able to see anything, we’d say this crazy hairstyle will definitely rock your Halloween. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, this look is insane enough to steal the show. This hairstyle is actually pretty doable. You just have to be willing to cut your hair to create bangs this long. The good thing is you can cut it shorter for a normal length right after the party. Keep it looking sleek and straight with Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream.
8. The cereal killer
If anybody asks, tell them you’re going as yesterday’s breakfast. Afraid we can’t help you with this one, though. You’ll need a hairstylist who carries around a toolbox (and by tools we don’t mean blowdryer!).
9. Metal mohawk
Wild, huh? Send us a photo if you ever go for this look, will ya?
These crazy hairstyles are definitely out of this world. Which one suits your weirdness level?
