Dressing up for Halloween doesn’t always mean slathering your face with zombie makeup. You can sport a beautiful, vintage hairstyle like the victory rolls. This hairstyle was popular in the 1940s and 1950s after the war. It was also made iconic by Hollywood stars and pin-up magazines during that time. How’s that for a fab Halloween glam look?

2. Red Carpet Ready

Picture this: A limo pulls over, the car door opens, and a beautiful woman dressed to the nines alights the vehicle. She steps on the red carpet and poses amidst flashing camera lights. Get this glamorous vibe going on your Halloween party by creating a sleek and sexy hairstyle like the wet look.

To create this hairstyle, put your hair in rollers first to give your hair volume. Then, remove the rollers and brush your hair back. Seal the look with a smoothing hairspray, and you’re done! Wear a floor-length dress and accessorize with chandelier earrings to complement this look.

Put a flower crown or a headdress on your hair and be a diwata (a Filipina deity) this Halloween. Wear a long flowy dress to go with your diwata hairstyle. You can also create soft waves on your hair using a curling wand to complete your look.

5. Viking warrior

Combine the fierce and the glamorous with this Viking warrior Halloween 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.”

6. 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.

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

7. Gothic Updo

Don’t want to leave your hair down? Make a statement with updo Halloween hairstyles like a voluminous bun. Just 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.

8. Minimalist Royalty

You don’t have to wear a ball gown to be a feel like royalty 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.
