Because your Halloween fun doesn't need to end!  

It’s nearly that time of year again, where we can devour a load of sweet treats, watch horror movies all night, and get creative with our makeup and hairstyles – yes, you guessed it: Halloween is here! And this year, we’ve spotted a big hair trend emerging: the Halloween undercut (yep, it really is a thing!).

But what makes this patterned undercut so scary, you ask? Well, this shaved-in style incorporates a creepy cobweb design that’s just perfect for all the spooky festivities you have planned!

So, if you’re in need of some edgy haircut inspo, then take a peek at the undercut looks we’re currently crushing on.

If you’re fully committed to getting an All Hallows’ Eve hairdo that will really make you stand out from the crowd, then an intricate cobweb pattern shaved into the underside of your hair, is just the look for you.

And the best part about this hairstyle? When you don’t want your undercut to show, all you have to do is let your hair down to conceal it! Don’t worry, your spooky hair secret is safe with us. Credit: @amatk87

Editor’s tip: If you decide to take on a shimmering metallic hair hue to go with your cobweb undercut, remember to adapt your wash and care system for one that’s formulated for colour-treated hair.

We especially love the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Colour Vibrance Protection Shampoo and Conditioner

While this Halloween undercut goes amazingly well with any number of hairstyles, we especially love how striking it looks when showcased against purple or sultry silvery hair! Now, if this vibrant ‘do doesn’t get you noticed, we don’t know what will. Credit: @jenthemisfit
