Looking for a futuristic and playful costume this year? Let your imagination run wild and fashion a sci-fi inspired alien look that will leave all your party guests in awe.

This other-worldly look is easy to achieve but perfect for a party - incorporating micro braids and cool-girl waves, this gorgeous look is an extra-terrestrial take on 2019's favorite hairstyle. Section your hair with the ghd narrow dressing brush and create twist braids stretching out across your crown. Secure these with hair ties then gently curl the lower section of your hair using the ghd platinum+ for extra volume. Go all out with celestial colors and some jeweled face stickers for an elevated finish.

Whether you opt for colorful and kooky, or a silver space odyssey, be the Queen of the Halloween scene with this alien-inspired hairstyle.


1. Starting in the center front hair line, take a triangle section to the crown using the ghd narrow dressing brush

2. Take 2 smaller triangle sections on each side of the first, leaving a little hair out around the face

3. Twist braid all these sections

4. Pinch and pull the top section add height

5. With all the hair that is down, using ghd platinum+, feed your hair though your straighten, moving from side to side when feeding the hair in to create a flat wave

6. Continue over all your hair

7. Using your fingers, massage the scalp to soften the texture

8. Fix in place with a hairspray and add shine with ghd smooth and finish serum
