Whether it’s blonde hair, dark hair or wilder options you desire, Halloween is the perfect night to experiment. Spirit Halloween is a great place to get started with Halloween hair accessories. Party City, Amazon and Halloween Express offer similar products for creative costumes.
Color Effects Hair Spray and Hot Hair Color are two brands of spray-on temporary hair color. However, none of the spray-on colors remove easily. The look goes well with garish, bold costumes. This is not the look for a more sophisticated costume. For Cleopatra or Marilyn Monroe, think a higher quality dye like L’Oreal for those dark hair or blonde hair styles. You’ll not be able to wash that look out in the morning, but then, the temporary dyes may not either, even after several washings. Take heed the low reviews all of the color hairspray brands.
A full head full of extensions can be a gorgeous, expensive look, but that’s not necessary for Halloween fun. A lock or two of an extension, clipped in, is a cheap, easy option. For a similar price as a can of spray color, one boldly colored hair extension gives the same punch. Plus, there are no multiple hair washings to get them out. Dark hair looks great with one extension of blue or purple. Blonde hair can carry a pink, green, or red. Pre-curled extensions save a step in styling, too. Bolder extensions – zebra, striped or multi-colored – liven up otherwise sedate costumes. Spider webs, butterflies or bones can also be clipped in.
Blonde hair styles are always popular, Halloween or not. Dying hair blonde may damage naturally dark hair, or it may not take the color convincingly enough to match the Halloween costume. But, a wig is a quick and easy way to get the blonde bombshell or dragon princess look. A natural blonde may not carry off Wonder Woman or a geisha without a wig. Wigs have huge advantages over other hair accessories. They fit with any style of costume, give the best look and can be reused multiple times. They are more expensive that other choices. When shopping, remember a wig cap is essential for a good fit.
Halloween hair accessories make all the difference between a halfhearted costume and a great one. Blonde hair, pink, blue or zebra striped with a spider web extension, hair mustn’t be overlooked when shopping for Halloween. Be bold, be brave – and remember to wash out a temporary spray color before bed.
