We’re having major Halloween hair envy!

Last night saw the annual UNICEF Halloween Ball take place, and boy oh boy was it a star-studded event! Not only did the magical “Malice in Wonderland” themed party raise more than half a million pounds to help protect children in Syria, but it also offered up some super fun hairstyles from the likes of Amber Le Bon and Sarah Ann Macklin! So, if you want to get some hot Halloween inspiration, take a look at our favourite looks from the horrifying ball, below.

UNICEF Halloween Ball: The best hairstyles from the party

For the UNICEF Halloween Ball, British model Sarah Ann Macklin decided to draw inspiration from The Addams Family character Wednesday Addams, who’s signature look includes schoolyard pigtail plaits and an all black ensemble. Sarah had her hair styled into 2 simple plaits, and tied the look together with a dark lip and a thin choker necklace. Sometimes the simplest of hairstyles are the most effective!

Actress Lily Travers took the Halloween costume game to a whole new level and dressed up as the White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland, but gave her look a dark twist! Her eccentric ensemble was accessorised with black glitter lipstick and delicate skull earrings, while her hair was interwoven with a pastel blue fabric, and fashioned into 2 makeshift-bunny ears. We reckon that a lot of hairspray was used to create this incredible look!

Mega-babe Amber Le Bon’s rose gold hair never ceases to amaze us, and it looked especially fabulous at the UNICEF Halloween Ball. While she may have lacked a spooky costume, she made up for it in the hair and makeup department. The star’s edgy hairstyle comprised of numerous loose box braids, while her eye makeup was smoked out for a sultry look. Ooh la la!

Editor’s tip: If you’re planning on dyeing your locks like Amber’s, then note that you’ll need to switch up your usual hair care routine. Try the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo and Conditioner to help maintain your colour vibrancy.
