We can all be sure of one thing when this time rolls around each year: Dallas loves to play dress up for Halloween. Believe us, we’ve seen it all. So if your costume this year calls for a different hairstyle, and you don’t want to wig it, then here are a few great options.
The Genie (from Real Simple)
Part your hair horizontally with a comb from the top of one ear to the other. (Stick the upper portion in a clip for the moment.) Tie back the bottom half tightly in an elastic just below the crown.
Unclip the upper section. Gather it into another elastic, right above the first one.
Wrap a strand of hair from one of the tails around both elastics. Secure with a bobby pin.
Pink and Otherworldly (from Schwarzkoph)
Black make-up gives the eyes their hollow appearance, and the hair is coloured sticky pink. This model demonstrates a look created by the Japanese designer Junya Watanabe.
Directions: Distribute hair wax, gel or hairspray in your hair and cover it with colouring powder. Alternatively, you may prefer using gel to style a pink wig to wear on Halloween.
Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly (from Real Simple)
Spritz the hair with volumizer. Use a comb to part the hair across the back of the head, from ear to ear. Gather the top section of hair at the crown, twist it one time, and secure with hairpins.
Gather the bottom section of the hair at the nape of the neck. Twist it in a column upward, so that the ends stick up.
Grasp the column of hair and tuck it underneath itself in the direction of the twist. Secure the hair along the twist with bobby pins. Finish with a misting of hair spray.
