Frightening frizzy afro
On any other day of the year, this hairstyle would be one of our worst nightmares! But Halloween is all about harnessing those darkest fears, so use any frizz and dryness in your hair to create this spooky 'do! Add volume and texture to your locks by back-combing gently, then use bobby pins to arrange your locks into this old-world, aristocratic updo.
Terrifying tousled tresses
We love those tousled, bedhead tresses: this hairstyle is both glamorous and high-fashion while also being so simple that you can do it in your sleep! Create these relaxed waves by applying a texturizing putty or spray to your lengths then use your fingers to create the waves and the volume you want for your Halloween hairstyle: who ever said witches couldn't be supernaturally stylish?
Scary sleek and smooth locks
If you aren't too keen on unleashing your hair's wild side this Halloween, sleek and smooth tresses can be the pefect addition to any look this weekend. Team with dramatic eye makeup or a blood-red lipstick shade and you are ready to party into the night!
Ghoulish Hollywood glamour
For something with a bit more Hollywood glamour to it, opt for a vintage updo for your Halloween party look! Create some glamorous curls in your locks with a curling iron before pinning them up in place with some well-placed bobby pins and a generous dose of hairspray.
Ghostly grungy wet look
For something a little less girly and a little more grungy, try rocking a tousled wet look in your tresses. Work both a nourishing hair oil - for all of that hydrating goodness that it adds to your lengths - and a sculpting gel from your roots to your tips to achieve this dark and edgy hairstyle.
