Halloween makeup often steals the show when it comes to the completely outrageous, the haunting and horrible and the mystifying and magical. If you have a costume planned out, chances are you have a hairstyle in mind to accentuate it. However, if you’re looking for something unique, or don’t want to go the whole costume route, there’s tons of ways to make your hair the “mane” attraction.
Looking through online galleries of Halloween hair and makeup, and sites like Pinterest can offer a wealth of ideas and inspiration, from mild to wild. Halloween hairstyles , even those that don’t require an entire costume can add a bit of terror to your tresses, without requiring an uncomfortable outfit or heavy makeup to keep people from constantly asking, “what are you supposed to be?” (One of the most annoying things ever).

Fun accessories are another way to get in the spooky spirit, without being too overdone.
Ali Express sells some adorable, and affordable accessories , and not just for hair.
Of course, sites like Etsy and EBay sell accessories in every shape, color and spook-factor.
You could, of course, make your own Fun and frightening accessories as well!
If you do use snap clips, I recommend these, like are used for clip-in hair extensions. The metal ones especially, are much more comfortable (in my opinion).
Color is another great option! Temporary color can he a great way to spice up your ‘do for a day. Just beware; if you’re a pale blonde shade, certain colors, especially reds, can stain and leave you with a pastel hue for a few days.
If you don’t want to risk it, clip-in hair extensions May be a better option. Buy them pre-colored or color your own, just remember human hair can be heat styled, while synthetic hair (Barbie doll type hair) will likely melt with heat.
If you do want to dress up, but don’t know where to start, here’s a quiz to help you decide.
And, of course, some more devilish ‘dos, to help inspire you!
