Elaborate costumes bring out the inner child at Halloween, but hair styles are also important. From hair extensions and wigs to colored hair dyes and spray-on color, there is no limit to the creativity cooked up for just one night.
Clip on some bold color and strut your stuff. Hair extensions are available in several formats: clip-on strips for adding texture or instant color, and clip-on pieces for general lengthening. Sally Beauty offers high quality extensions, either synthetic or natural, at reasonable prices. Remember that curling irons and hair dryers can damage synthetic hair extensions. If interested in adding all-over-color or colored tips, do not purchase synthetic hair extensions; they will not hold up to hair dye. Natural human hair extensions withstand hair dye, heat and styling products. Bold clip-on hair strips work with nearly any costume, from sultry and dark to fun and flamboyant.
Transforming your look has never been easier. Wigs allow for the ultimate style change. If you want an authentic darker image, purchase black or dark toned wigs with texture or wave. Narrow strips of color also make a bold statement. Bright monochrome colored wigs are ideal for a romantic fairy tale image, although eye-popping color also works with a glamorous look. Wigs with large volume and intense feathering are best suited for humorous or outrageous costumes. Spirit Halloween and Party City have a wide variety of wigs to meet your costume requirements.
Colored hair dyes
Get ready to walk in with one color, and walk out with another. If your hair is an ideal texture and length, wigs will not suffice. Instead, look for a safe high-quality hair dye to complete your new Halloween image. Temporary hair dyes do fade after the first wash, but often remain in hair for several weeks. Beyond the Zone Color Bombz, Streekers and N Rage Colorageous offer temporary color with no damage or lingering effects. For a semi-permanent change, Manic Panic Amplified Dye and Special Effects FX provide rich vibrant colors that wash out over time. Hair dyes work with any costume, just match the hair dye to key tones in your outfit for a perfect combination.
Spray-on hair color
Looking for a change designed to last one night only? Look no further than colored hairspray. For a temporary bold color, Jerome Russell’s B Wild, offered at Walgreens, or Hot Hair Color, available at Spirit Halloween, are two good products. These sprays do not leave hair sticky or stiff. When wigs are too warm and hair dye too permanent, spray-on hair color is a perfect compromise. Like hair dyes, colored hairspray works with any costume. Since there are no lasting effects, be as crazy as you like. Bold quirky colors and styles will be gone by the next wash.
