Bold, bouffant-style hair has been a hot runway and street style trend for quite some time now, so it’s no wonder that female vampire hairstyles also feature this stylish ‘do! Remember what they say: the bigger, the better! Credit: @madlen_makeup
Editor’s tip: To recreate this spooky look, you’ll need to be armed with a teasing comb and some VO5 Flexible Hold Hairspray. Keep backcombing and spritzing until you’ve got voluminous locks to die for!
Ever since the film The Great Gatsby hit our screens, we’ve been obsessed with this party-ready hairstyle, and it just so happens to work amazingly well when given a vampiric twist. Halloween vampire hairstyles really don’t get more sophisticated than this! Credit: @sashaslaboy
If bygone ‘dos aren’t your thing, then how about dabbling in some spooky braided vampire hairstyles? Style your messy mane into a half-up, half-down hairstyle, then create a few twisty snake braids and place them at random around your mane. For added effect, weave your braids through one another to give the appearance that your plaits are alive and ssslithering! Credit: @hairbybiancaxx
Editor’s tip: To give your braids more grit and texture, prep your hair with a spritz of TRESemmé Day 2 Volumising Dry Shampoo. This will help your braids to stay in place, while also giving your locks lots of bouncy volume, too.
If the above styles are too spine-chilling for your taste, then fret not, because you can always go as a sexy (yet gory) vampire. After all, the best way to trap your victims is to seduce them with mesmerising vampire hairstyles for Halloween! Credit: @francescakmakeup
