If you want to recreate the popular DC Comics character’s signature look for yourself, click through our gallery above or scroll down to see our favourite black Harley Quinn hairstyles from Instagram, now.
The Blonde Bombshell
There’s a lot going on with this look but most notably are the bright blonde locks, with ends that look like they’ve been dipped in colour. LOVE!
So you want to dress as Harley but you don’t have long hair, so it’s not possible, right? Wrong! Crochet braids are an amazing way to add length to your natural hair without putting too much strain on your strands. Credit: @yourtruelove94
We’re not gonna lie, we are loving this makeup, but we also adore this Instagrammer’s cute Harley Quinn-inspired pigtails.
Psst: Did you know you can use a straightener to curl your hair? Here’s how!
Editor’s tip: For bouncy curls that last, use a curl creating hairspray like the VO5 Wave Creation Hairspray before and after curling. This will help build your curls as well as giving them extra staying power.
Got curly hair? Why not add your own curly girl flair to your Harley costume?
Just divide your hair into two high pigtails, then paint the ends of your curls red and blue with a temporary hair colour, and that’s it! Now you’re ready to cause some serious mischief, puddin’. Credit: @analidialopess
Braids for Days
Black Harley Quinn hairstyles that are also protective? We know it sounds too good to be true, but this awesome hairstyle is a case in point.
Editor’s tip: To care for your box braids and maintain that neat, just-braided look, keep them moisturised with a leave-in conditioner spray like the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Hydrating Mist.
If the thought of colouring your braids is stressing you out, you’ll be relieved to know there’s a much easier way to steal Harley‘s style – ribbons! Simply tie your hair up (these half-up buns look really cute), then tie red and blue ribbons around them in a cute bow. Credit: @kayla.ayana
Americana Meets Harley Quinn
It may not be the 4th of July, but you can still show your patriotic side with a red, white and blue ‘do. Simply grab yourself a white wig and spray the ends with red and blue for the quickest way to emulate the look.
This is a fun and easy style to re-create and at the end of the night you can just take off the wig. Credit: @iamme192
Red and Blue Highlights
If you want to rock Harley‘s signature red and blue pigtails but fancy something a little more subtle, this look is for you!
Everyone’s first thought when they think of Harley Quinn is her pigtails but that’s not the only hairstyle she rocks!
Real fans will know that in both the comics and the Suicide Squad film, she’s also seen wearing space buns, so why not show them some love too?! After all, they’re super on trend right now. Credit: @kadiii_botamochii
Take a leaf out of Harley Quinn‘s style book with this loud and proud ‘do.
Get your temporary hair-dye at the ready (either a spray or hair chalk will work!), as this style screams for a dose of loud colour. Forget trying to be neat or subtle with this one, it’s all about the bold brights here! Credit: @tierneyelisse
Want to go for a more glam vibe this Halloween? We love the way this Instagrammer combines the iconic blue and red ends with more polished Hollywood waves – because who says Halloween hair can’t be pretty, too? Credit: @allykat465
If you’re not one to dabble with colouring your natural hair, no fear! You can still get on board the Harley Quinn style-train.
