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!

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.

Tip: For added effect, weave your braids through one another to give the appearance that your plaits are alive and ssslithering! Credit: @hairbybiancaxx
