Halloween Hairstyles 2018

Do you ever think “hmm might just go casual this Halloween”? No, us neither.

October 31st is the most exciting styling day of the year; a night to literally let your hair down and embrace all things weird and wonderful. That different ‘do you’ve been dying to rock? Now’s the time!

We’ve pulled together our favourite ideas to give you some inspiration for this year's costume. Whether it’s a cult classic or a pop-culture pun, you’re sure to set heads turning with our Halloween Hairstyles.

Gorgeous Galaxy

Since the '90s, people have been rocking Space Buns for all kind of events, most recently making a popular comeback amongst the festival scene. Halloween is the perfect time for experimenting with ‘punny’ costumes, so we love this literal take on the look! For an ‘out of this world’ inspired style, sweep up your locks into two messy buns and partner with galactic infused makeup.

Unicorn Dreams

Everyone’s favourite mythical creatures are renowned for their magical manes. Use the ghd contour® professional crimper to add volume and texture, and tie back into a pony (or unicorn?!) tail. Top it off with a horn crown, or if you’re feeling really adventurous, try some backcombing and hairspray and fashion the horn yourself!

Pink is just for ghouls

This look definitely isn't for the faint-hearted...and perhaps a bit permanent if you've got school or work the next day! But if you're feeling brave, embrace some colour for your costume. Of course there's the traditional red or green, but we think pink should always be seen!

If Disney is more your thing…

Glacial Blue is all over the catwalks this season, so why not stick with the Frozen theme and rock a braid like Elsa? Add in some extensions for extra volume and braid the length of your hair, keeping the look loose and chunky for a full volume effect. Even princesses come out to play on Halloween!

On Wednesdays, we wear braids

Another braided look but not quite a princess...Introducing everyone's favourite goth, Wednesday Addams. Great for if you're heading to a last minute party, this style couldn't be easier. For a real Wednesday vibe, use the tip of the ghd tail comb to create a super-neat centre parting, and tame away any flyaways with ghd smooth and finish serum to keep the look sleek.
