Roses may have more of an association with romantic celebrations such as Valentines Day, but they also make a rather stunning hair accessory for Halloween. So, if you’re a dab hand at DIY, all you have to do is glue a set of crimson roses onto a headband and you’ll have a hauntingly beautiful rose crown! To give this look its Day of the Dead-ready finish, bring out some gothic vibes by pairing your crown with pale makeup and black lips. Credit: @dauriya_theface

If you want to take your spooky skeleton costume up a notch for Halloween, simply accessorise your mane with a pretty skull and crossbones clip! As for the rest of your look, all you need to do is throw on an all-black outfit and spray your hair with temporary silver hairspray (that’s if you don’t already have uber on-trend grey hair). This nifty little accessory can also work as the perfect finishing touch to any Halloween get-up, especially if you’re low on funds! Credit: @itskendallkay

Not all Halloween looks have to be scary, you know. An easy way to jazz up your mane is with some delicate floral accessories. So, if you have some real (or fake) flowers lying around at home, why not pepper some into a braid to ooze magical fairytale vibes? You could even take it one step further and sprinkle some glitter all over. Trust us, with this look, you’ll be giving Tinkerbell a real run for her money! Credit: @charlottehairandmakeup

Cobwebs and spiders

Is there anything creepier than spiders and their sticky cobwebs? We didn’t think so. Working in fake cobwebs and spiders is the perfect way to help bring your look to life (as well as scaring your fellow party guests)! And when it comes to this look, you’re totally free to rock it any way you wish. Try weaving your cobwebs through a braid, wrapping them around a ponytail, or even spread them over a classic bun.
