Halloween costumes are fun to buy or make. The right accessories such as wands, claws, teeth or shoes can make or break an outfit. The right hair can be a crowning glory to the costume or a mess. The following tips will help you decide which color, wig, extensions, to make your Halloween outfit memorable.
Dressing up like a rock star, movie star or character is always popular. Imagine trying to have your hair dyed, cut and styled like the singer Dolly Parton. It is far easier to purchase and wear a wig. Men, women and children can wear wigs to make their costumes stand out.
The good thing about a wig is that it can be cut or styled to match your needs; you do not have to grow out a bad haircut.
Use wigs to create unique characters; fit tiaras, helmets, horns or other accessories into the hairstyle.
Hair extensions are sections of hair, real or synthetic that clip under your real hair to make your hair appear long. Not just for Halloween, you can wear them any time of year.
Wear different colored extensions to make your hair appear streaked as so many stars have today. Wear multi-colored extensions for a punk rocker or alien look. You can check out video tutorials that teach you how to incorporate them into your hair.
Spray In Hair Color
Spray in hair color is fun and cool; create a unique hairstyle for your Halloween costume; wash it out at the end of the night. Streak your hair every color of the rainbow; rock stars, aliens, be the center of a flower or other creature.
Paint a streak from the center part to the end for a “Bride of Frankenstein” look. There are spray paints you can use on pets as well; the two of you can match.
A hair weave is an extension that is sewn into a braid on the wearer’s head. The hair extension blends in with the user’s natural hair. Those who have trouble growing long hair or whose hair is thin can have long hair that is thick and natural looking.
For Halloween, you can have weaves of different colors; adorn them with accessories such as horns, tiaras, feathers, alien antennae or anything you can think of.
There are advantages to changing your hair’s look in addition to creating a Halloween look. You may discover you look better as a redhead, blonde or brunette. Streaks of different colors may look good on you. Instead of a wig, you might just decide to have your hair dyed a different color. Lucille Ball started out as a brunette; she dyed her hair to create a character and kept the color the rest of her life.
