Looking for a spooky but chic Halloween hairstyle idea? Search no longer, we have seven inspirational looks that will help you stand out from the zombie crowd!
A simple wreath of flowers can turn any hairstyle into an ethereal, fairy-princess-inspired look. We love this accessory when paired with either long, flowing waves or a pretty braided bun. Don't forget to think color! Pink flowers, for example, look beautiful on an autumnal light brown ombré with strawberry undertones. Or, opt for yellow and cream flowers to bring out blond highlights.
If Black Swan is your inspiration, complete your outfit with a suitable ballerina bun. The key to this look is super sleek hair, so think about using a smoothing cream before blow-drying. We recommend the Liss Unlimited Smoothing Cream from Serie Expert, which calms even the most rebellious hair into silky smooth locks.
Space buns, circa 1990
Be inspired by the 90s for your Halloween hair this year! Either in a half-up look, so you can still show off your lengths, or in big and bouncy buns just above either ear. Use an elastic the same color as your hair to tie the buns, and secure in place with bobby pins to control any flyaways.
Doll Halloween hair
Thinking of going to your Halloween party as a creepy (but cute) doll? Use a bow as a simple hair accessory to really pull the look together. Plus, it doubles-up as a pin for controlling any loose hair at the back. Tie the hair up into a neat high chignon, then clip the bow underneath the bun. The bigger the bow the better, for this look.
Wet effect hair can be a little intimidating for wearing as an everyday look. Which is why it makes such an ideal Halloween hair style! Go for a mermaid-inspired look, and use a wet look gel like Extreme Splash from the Wet Domination line by Tecni.ART. On dry hair, take small sections of hair and apply gel from the roots to the tips, twisting the hair slightly as you go. Leave the hair down, or tie into a loose and messy low ponytail.
If you prefer more off-the-wall and unexpected Halloween hairstyles, try an equestrian-themed look. Not only does a riding hat with a low ponytail offer a super quick way to instantly transform your outfit, but it's ideal for covering unwashed hair or unwanted visible roots. If you do take off the hat during the evening, give your hair a quick spritz with some dry shampoo such as the Morning After Dust powder by Tecni.ART. Hair is instantly more voluminous, and any excess oil is absorbed. Plus, it contains a subtle fragrance to leave people wondering who that beautiful dark horse is during Halloween...
The Queen of Color
For those of you who aren't afraid of playing with color, a bright pumpkin orange could be perfect for your Halloween hair style. You don't even need to take the plunge and go for a permanent color. The new #ColorfulHair service from L'Oréal Professionnel offers a multitude of bright shades that can be combined and used together to create unique temporary color combinations that last up to 15 shampoos. From striking aquamarine, shocking pink and pastel purple, to fiery red and dazzling orange, Halloween is the perfect excuse to try a bold Colorful Hair creation!
