The best Halloween costumes are nothing without an awesome Halloween hairstyle. Of course, it’s impossible to step into a new character with your usual hairdo. That’s why we love this infographic that gives step-by-step instructions on how to create this year’s hottest Halloween hairstyles.
If you’ve just binge-watched Game of Thrones, try recreating the beautiful and medieval braids that Daenerys Targaryen wore. It’s four small braids gathered together in the back of your head, with lots of loose curls. The braids are done in a Dutch braid style (the opposite of a French braid) that crosses the hair under instead of over.
To bring some digital culture into real life, recreate your favorite snapchat filter. This deer fawn hair style has super-cute pigtail space buns that can work for either long or short hair. It’s an easy style to do, and when paired with this deer fawn makeup tutorial, you’ll be living your app IRL.
For a different take on the classic witch costume, opt for the look of Elvira, Mistress of The Dark. Her epic beehive is sure to make a statement. The hairstyle for this costume is so tall that it even uses a prop like a loofa that you wrap your hair over to add extra height and drama. To complete the look, try one of these 89 spooky nail art designs.
If you’d rather throw it back to a different decade, try doing what Tina Turner did and wear a big wig with edgy, textured cuts. This sassy style is such an easy costume, requiring very little planning or effort. Just pair the wig with a sparkly dress and heels, and you’re ready to rock & roll.
But maybe your Halloween style this year is throwing it way back– back to 1776 for a style inspired by the hit musical, Hamilton. This old-fashioned up-do is a perfect match for a corseted gown and powdered makeup. Styled after Kirsten Dunst’s look in the movie Marie Antoinette, it has layers of pinned curls. This style calls for silver hair, but it would work fine with any color, and just about any length hair. Don’t forget to accessorize by adding flowers to your hair.
More detailed instructions on these hairstyles are available at Ogle School’s post on the Ultimate Halloween Hairstyles: From Braids to Beehives. We will certainly be strutting our hairstyling skills this Halloween thanks to the step-by-step instructions.
