Scary Beautiful: Halloween Hair That Also Works Post-October-31st
One of the toughest parts of planning a Halloween costume is deciding what on earth to do with that hair. On one hand, you want it to be bold, unique, and of course, have it work with your costume. On the other hand, you may not want to damage your hair for the sake of a single night, only to have damage it further to change it back to normal.
While you could go out and buy wig, a lot of people prefer to have some fun with their natural hair. So, I’ve gathered up some examples of hair styles and colors that can work for a myriad of costumes AND that are versatile enough to carry you both through and past everyone’s favorite spooky holiday.
I’m a huge fan of this one. Gorgeous and unique, the color and style could work well for any mythical creature costume: mermaids, fairies, princesses, or even Daenerys from Game of Thrones (with shimmering pastels to make you stand out from all the other platinum Dragon Queens at your costume party).
Love, love, love these fiery locks and the braids only enhance their loveliness. With this hair, you could portray any red-haired beauty your little heart desired. And yeah, the options here are pretty damn unlimited.
"Fade Into Blue"
Light blue or teal (or any unnatural color, really) woven in to the lower levels of your natural hair color would make for a beautiful addition to any mermaid/goddess/fairy costume. Blonde, brown or black hair would all work for this look as well and can carry you in and out of the season with style.
I’ve seen a lot of these two-toned, Melanie Martinez-esque styles surfacing on the internet lately, all with dynamic color choices. Whether you’re digging this exact look for your Frankenbride costume, or if you want to change up the colors—black and white for Cruella de Vil*, or pink and blue for Harley Quinn—this look is a winner on so many different levels, both during and after Halloween.

I hope this list helped you to glean some hair inspiration for your costumes this year!
