Backcombed bouffant

Bold, bouffant-style hair has been a hot runway and street style trend for quite some time now, so it’s no wonder that the vampires have adopted this stylish ‘do, also! To recreate this spooky look, you’ll need to be armed with a teasing comb and some VO5 Classic Styling Dramatic Volume Creation Hairspray.

Deadly braids

If bygone ‘dos aren’t your thing, then how about trying some unusual snake braids? Style your messy mane into a half-up, half-down hairstyle, then create a few 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 slitheringCredit: @hairbybiancaxx

Seductive curls

If the above styles are too spooky 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 your mesmerising ‘do! To get the look, all you need to do is simply curl your hair with a large barrel curling tong, spritzing your mane as you go with the Toni&Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray, to add tonnes of extra volume. Credit: @francescakmakeup
