Halloween is a day when anyone can dress up as their favourite character, person or a movie star and go trick-or-treating. To dress up and look spooky, it is not just the outfit that must be complete. The make-up and hairstyle must also be spooky to complete the overall Halloween costume. Pick a hairstyle that suits the costume you are wearing for Halloween.

Straight Up With Spiders

If you have longer hair, you can create a mohawk that stands up straight in the air and use plastic spiders to make it spooky. To make the mohawk stand straight up in the air, put hair glue into the air and slide your hair upward with your hands. Lie down on the ground and have someone blow dry your large Mohawk, as it lies flat on the floor above your head. Once the hair glue has dried in your hair, your Mohawk will stand straight up. Add plastic spiders and some fake spiderwebs on the large mohawk.

Medusa's Snakes

Many people are afraid of snakes, so Medusa's signature hairstyle is ideal for Halloween. Known from Greek mythology, Medusa's hair consists of snakes that are intertwining amongst one another. To create the Medusa hairstyle, purchase some rubber snakes that you can use for the look. Curl your hair if it is long, so you can use the curls to hold the rubber snakes in your hair. Pin your hair down tightly to keep the snakes visible and in place. You can even have some snakes hang loosely, so they move when you walk. It will make the snakes look alive.

Bride of Frankenstein

The Bride of Frankenstein is known for her horror-inspired hairstyle. To create this horrific hairstyle, apply hairspray to your hair and crimp the hair using a crimping iron. All of the hair should be crimped. When done, take one small section at a time and start teasing it lightly with a comb. Then, use lots of hairspray to pull the teased hair back into a cone that points backward at a slight upward angle. To finish, use white hair paint to create those signature white hair streaks.

Traditional Horror Characters

The original horror icons, such as Dracula and Frankenstein, are often seen on the streets during Halloween. Both of these horror characters have smooth and structured hair, both of which can be done with a shiny hair gel and a comb. While Frankenstein's hair is high and shiny, the original Dracula's hairstyle is shiny and gelled hair, but is flattened down on his scalp. Both of these hairstyles are horrific because of the costume they are used with, but when everything comes together, the excess of shiny hair gel makes them spooky. If you are looking for a modern horror icon, consider creating a washed-out lime green hairstyle to portray the Joker in the "Batman" films.
