Your protective style has witchy potential.

Top your existing protective style with a turban to create a witch-worthy style. We love this color palette as an alternative to the classic black outfit. You are guaranteed to stand out at your Halloween celebrations with this look.

2. Teased Hair

Work section by section until you get the desired volume.

Tap into your crazy hair-teasing hair skills this Halloween to create this ghastly (but super in character) witchy ‘do. To achieve this, use a teasing brush to brush the hair from the ends to the roots, working section by section until you get the, er, rat’s nest effect you desire.

3. Sultry Lob

Make that mysterious femme fatale hairstyle work in your favor.

Bring a little film noir glam to Halloween with this polished, femme fatale-inspired lob. After you wash and condition your hair, blow-dry it straight, focusing on smooth and sleek ends. Be sure to protect your hair from heat by using a thermal protectant like TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray. That, or you can also don a similar-looking wig if you happen to have one lying around!

4. Classic Hat

You can never go wrong with that famous (and okay, kind of adorkable) pointy hat!

If you’re short on time or really just want to go with the classics, that famous, ever-popular witch hat always works. There are so many cool and fashionable variations on the classic hat, we’re sure that you’ll find the right one for your costume and personality. To enhance this look, create some waves by using a curling wand, and gently pull out your curls while they’re still warm.

5. Controlled Curls
