Let Your Makeup Do the Talking With This Spooky Halloween Hair Idea

The perfect backdrop to your spookiest look yet. 

Are we the only ones feeling like Halloween completely snuck up on us this year? The fall weather here in New York was slow to arrive and has us feeling like summer only just ended and like we should have at least another few months to think up our killer costumes. Turns out that October is halfway over and Halloween is just around the corner. For that reason, we’re choosing to be in the ‘dramatic makeup, simple hair’ camp this year for a no-fail costume that makes a statement without stressing us out.

If you want to go the same route, get to watching those YouTube tutorials to perfect your Halloween makeup and stick to this simple and spooky Halloween hair idea:

Consider This Simple and Spooky Halloween Hair Idea

Accessorize your waves with a coordinating headband.

With a face full of paint and a coordinating outfit to match, leaving your hair down in loose waves is a totally legitimate option. Alternatively, you can opt for an all-black outfit that blends into the night and really puts the focus on your face. Either way, leave the hair to us and follow our foolproof tutorial for easy waves that will look on-point with any costume.

Prep your hair with Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray for a moisturizing and softening effect on your strands that will simultaneously protect them from any heat damage. Then use a 1-inch curling iron to create loose waves through the length of your hair. We suggest starting the waves just below your ears for a truly understated look.

Once you’ve curled all your hair and all of the curls have cooled you can run your fingers through them to break them up and create a softer, wavier look. Finish the style off with a mist of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 to keep the look in place all night.
