Mermaid hair has been a hot trend this year, and it just so happens to make the ideal Halloween hairstyle, too! So, to ooze magical mermaid vibes, work in a luscious purple to pink ombre into your locks! And, if you really want to stand out from the crown at your All Hallows Eve party, make sure you opt for ultra bold colours – after all, you know what they say: the brighter, the better!

Editor’s tip: If you plan on adopting any of these hair colours for Halloween 2016, note that you’ll need to switch up your hair care routine in order to help maintain your colour vibrancy. We’d recommend using the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo and Conditioner.


Looking for a Halloween hairstyle that’s a little on the spookier side? Then you need to go out this year rocking a big and bold zombie hair bouffant! If this look doesn’t scare the life out of your friends, then nothing will.
