1. Viking warrior

Combine the fierce and the glamorous with this Viking warrior hairstyle. To nail this look, you have to create a full, messy down ‘do. Flip your hair, apply mousse, and blow dry to boost volume. Then, tease your hair to add more volume and create that tousled look. Get a curling iron with a small barrel and curl small sections of hair at a time. When done, do a hair flip, scrunch your hair and voila! Your hair may be messy, but your look totally says, “Don’t mess with me.”

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray on your hair before curling to add texture and grip.

2. Gothic waves

Look like a stunning Gothic priestess by making waves with your long hair. Create thin S-shaped waves by using a curling iron with a medium-sized barrel. Curl a thin section of hair at a time for about five seconds, then release.

When you haven’t achieved the shape that you’re gunning for, curl the same section again for another five seconds. Avoid wrapping your hair around the barrel for a long time to keep it from curling too much.

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray

Editor’s tip: Guard against heat damage by spritzing TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair before curling.

3. Gothic updo

Don’t want to leave your hair down? Make a statement with a voluminous bun. If you have thick hair, you can wear this ‘do to a Halloween Party. Put your hair in a high ponytail first, then curl sections of your ponytail to create volume. Then, gather your hair, twist it loosely, and wrap it around the base of your ponytail. Secure with bobby pins. You can also use a hair donut to make sure that your bun stays in place.

TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse

Editor’s tip: Prep your hair for styling by applying a dollop of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse to help create a fuller look. The mousse can also help tame frizz.

4. Minimalist princess

You don’t have to wear a ball gown to be a princess and spell Halloween Glam. Sometimes, all it takes is a confident posture, raised chin, and a drop-dead gorgeous and sleek hair. Achieve this by blow drying your hair first. Then, use a flat iron to straighten hair. Complete your hairstyle with a gold, minimalist headpiece for that simple but sophisticated royalty vibe.

Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner

Editor’s tip: Maintain straight, frizz-free hair by washing it with Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner

5. Galaxy superhero

Just one look at you wearing this hairstyle, and everyone will know that you’re a galaxy heroine. Create perfect space buns by starting with soft and manageable hair. Put your hair in pigtails first, then brush them before putting them in buns so create a smooth, tangle-free hairstyle. Finish by spritzing hairspray on your hair to get rid of frizz.
