Trending Halloween Hairdos
Over the years, the Halloween scenario has changed. People do not only dress up as something scary or ghostlike, but they also love to impersonate celebrities and characters from movies, comics, and whatnot. It is no more limited to impersonating witches or making devil’s horn hairstyles. As long as it’s cool it works. We will be describing 6 easy hairstyles you can pull off for Halloween without much hassle.
1. The Granny Look!
Grandmas are cool, but grandmas can be creepy too and dressing up as one can be a great look for this occasion.
Step 1 – To create this old lady look you’ll be needing a set of Velcro hair rollers. But before all that, you need to get a nice temporary spray hair color in the shade white.
Step 2 – Take sections of hair and spray the hair color in each section. We recommend high beams Intense Temporary Spray on Hair Color in shade Wicked white #21.
Step 3 – After you have colored several sections of your hair, you need to take each Velcro roller and roll the sections up. If you have fine hair, 6 to 8 Velcro rollers should be sufficient. But if you have thick hair, you might need a few more. Because of the self-adhesive nature of Velcro rollers, you will not need additional hair spray.
Your granny hairstyle is done! Now you just need work on your makeup skills and draw some wrinkles and stuff!
2. The Classic Monroe Look on Short Hair!
Although the diva is dead, you can always celebrate the classic Marilyn Monroe look. This hairstyle is easy to do, yet a show stopper. Also, if you are looking for ideas for short hair, this is the one!
Step 1 – To get this look you need to get a good hair mousse. Try the TRESemmé TRES Two Hair Mousse. Take a generous amount of hair mousse and apply all over your hair from roots to the tips. This mousse gives an extra hold so you’ll not be disappointed with the end result.
Step 2 – At this point, if you want you can add some hair spray as well. We need some stronghold for this style. Now you’ll be needing a set of Caruso Molecular Steam Hot Rollers, the medium, the small and the petite ones for short hair.
Step 3 – Now comes the real challenge. Carefully take a wide section from the front part of your hair, then divide it into three even sections (Taking more hair on the right side and less on the left side) then take a petite hot roller and roll it up towards the front of your face. Now take the middle section and roll it up on a roller the same way and secure with the plastic shield. Take the third sections and repeat the same process in the same direction.
Step 4 – Now, from each side, take thin sections and roll them into small rollers towards the opposite direction of the first three rollers. In this was do six to eight sections similar to how you did it in the front but roll on the opposite side.
Step 5 – Now the third part will be done the same way but the rollers will be rolled in the opposite direction of the previous part. Remember these parts are done horizontally but the rollers are rolled vertically.
Step 6 – Now take the rest of the hair and divide them into three horizontal parts. Take the bottom most layer and divide into two parts. Roll them upwards. The 2nd part from the bottom should be divided into three parts and rolled upwards the same way. The third layer should be divided into two parts and rolled downwards. Follow the orders and voila! Now all you need to do is put a hair net over it and wait till your hair sets. We say you better wait for at least 30 minutes. You can use a hair dryer to speed up the process too.
Now after the wait, remove the rollers! Those gorgeous curls need a finishing touch. Use a hairbrush to only brush the front part of your hair backward, section your hair into one side and then use your fingers to define the ends. Is that the real Monroe? You’ll be surprised how accurate it looks!
3. Morticia Adams from ‘The Adam’s Family”
Morticia Adams is simply gorgeous yet one of the creepiest characters to impersonate. While the look is gorgeous and dark, it is pretty easy to pull it off with a smoky makeup with good contouring skills. But when it comes to your hair, it is one of the easiest on our list of styles. But you can do this in 3 ways.
First Way – If your hair is thick and black, you will need a hair straightener and simply part your hair in the middle, straighten your hair equally on both sides and you’re done!
Second Way – If your hair is blonde, you need to follow some steps. First of all, you need to use a blow dryer and a hairbrush to bring the straight sleek hair look. Secondly, you need to spray and color your hair black to hide the blonde hair. Try Spray on Wash Out Black Hair Color Temporary Hairspray by GoodMark.
Third Way – If you don’t want to do either, you can get a black wig with, part it in the middle and just wear it! You can try the Kalyss 26 inches Women’s Wig Long Straight Imported Synthetic Cosplay Costume Hair Wig for this exotic look!
4. ‘Wednesday’ With Simple Braids!
Adam’s Family has plenty of characters to impersonate especially for Halloween. Wednesday is a popular one for sure after Morticia Adams. This one is simple and easy than many other hairstyles.
Step 1 – If you have long hair, all you need to do is spray it with black hair color spray.
Step 2 – Section it into two equal parts.
Step 3 – Now make two braids and secure with rubber bands.
At this point, if your hair is naturally light in color, you might spray some more black hair color spray and you’re done!
5. Harley Quinn From Suicide Squad!
Yes, it is the famous character from the movie Suicide Squad with pink and blue pigtails. You can do this hairdo on your original hair if its blonde or you can use synthetic wigs if it’s not blonde. If your hair is medium length, this is a perfect style for you. So there are two ways of doing this hairdo just like the real Harley Quinn. But the process is similar.
Step 1 – Section your hair into two equal parts.
Step 2 – Use T3 Voluminous Large Rollers to add some mild waves and volume to your hair.
Step 3 – Make two pigtails on both sections.
Step 4 – Spray the left pigtail blue with L’Oreal Paris Hair Color Colorista 1-Day Spray, Blue.
Step 5 – Spray the right pigtail pink with Jerome Russell Temporary Spray, Pink.
Step 6 – Use your fingers to pull out some hair in the front to bring the natural messy pigtail look.
Your Harley Quinn funky hairdo is all set!
6. DC’s Wonder Woman!
This look can be created easily using a good set of hot rollers and long hair. Wonder Woman has wonderfully curly hair. You can use the INFINITI PRO BY CONAIR Instant Heat Ceramic Flocked Rollers to create those gorgeous curls. But since it needs dark hair and if you don’t have it, you might want to spray it black.
Step 1 – Make sure your hair is clean and dry.
Step 2 – Now use some hairspray and prepare your hair. Try Kenra Volume Spray!
Step 3 – Section your hair from the middle.
Step 4 – Now section your hair into several parts according to your convenience and secure them with styling clips.
Step 5 – Use the flocked hot rollers and roll them up inwards.
Step 6 – wait for 20 minutes.
Step 7 – Now remove the rollers carefully and spray some black hair color on it to darken your hair if it’s not dark already.
Step 8 – Wear your DIY or store-bought Wonder Woman headband and voila!
No Halloween look is complete without a hairdo that goes with it. But to get the looks, you need the proper equipment’s. It is quite easy to pull off a good hairstyle with some common equipment. But if you have a set of hot rollers of good quality, the job becomes a lot easier. Also, in addition, a good blow-dryer, some good styling clips, and hair setting materials like mousses and hairsprays are needed. But the aftermath of Halloween hairstyles can be devastating. Hence we suggest you buy products that will do minimal damage. Also, there is no alternative to eating healthy and caring for your hair before and after styling.

I am a huge fan of your blog. The articles you have put up are not only useful but at the same time also easy and fun to read. You don’t overthink or overwrite your points. This piece of writing is also the same. I loved reading each of the spooky hairstyles that you have described here. They are easy to create but would absolutely go with your Halloween outfit.
Now, as I am here, let me ask a question. You have said to use a temporary white/blond hair color on the hair before trying “the granny look”. My question is, won’t this color damage my precious tresses? What if I wear a wig instead of putting on damaging hair color?
Looking forward to your answer!
Thank you in advance.
First of all, thank you very much for your sweet praising words. We are ecstatic with your response.
Secondly, in general, as you wash them off quickly, temporary hair colors are less damaging for your precious hair locks. However, if you can use a wig instead of dying your manes, it would be even better.
We hope that you answered your queries correctly.
