As fall is picking up steam, and the leaves are kissing the ground, we know that pumpkin carving and Halloween parties are just around the corner. If you are like most people, you spend a lot of time thinking about your costume and your makeup, but sometimes leave your hairstyle until the last minute. So before the “ Monster Mash” catches on in a flash, it's time to solidify your hairstyle plans. Let FHI Heat products do the heavy lifting for you so that you can fit the part, whatever type of ghost or goblin you might choose.
There are so many ways that you can choose to be a sexy sprite, such as a fairy, a leprechaun, or even a friendly witch. The key to each of these looks is a great blowout and the liberal use of our Volumizing Mousse. This will ensure that your hair stays where you want it to, without being sticky or clumpy.
You can create some volume with our Bounce Pro Curler, adding curls as you go, and tuck part of your hair under with bobby pins to create the updo portion of the fairy look. This hairstyle will need a lot of hairspray, and we recommend our Mega Hold to keep the sprite look in place without clumping or flaking. This way, you can dance (or fly!) the night away without worry.
As the saying goes, all things become new again, and going with a retro look for Halloween is an easy costume to pull off. Think wide eyeliner, lipstick, and a killer bodysuit, and you have stepped back in time fifty years. But the heart of this costume is the hair, and you will want to create a fabulous blowout in order to pull it off.
Start with Prep and Primer which will protect your hair from the harsh heat, while building resilience and elasticity for the look you are creating. This product creates an even canvas for your hair, allowing you to style it while maintaining moisture and avoiding frizziness. We recommend our Handle-less Hair Dryer to pump up the volume of your blowout, which is easy to operate and provides maximum volume. Once you achieve the perfect 70’s volume, use the High Altitude Lift Spray to keep the hairdo from falling.
Yes, the DC Comic character from Birds of Preyis still in vogue this year, and it is very easy to pull off this hairstyle. Part your hair down the middle and secure it in two pigtails, one on each side of the top of your head. The bangs make this look, and to create the curtain bang effect, a styler is a perfect tool.
Twist it to style and add waves as you go, pushing each half of your bangs to their respective sides. When you have created the perfect bangs, top them off with our classic Hair Mist, and you will leave your bangs frizz-free and shiny.
You can use this look for a multitude of looks. It’s soft and girly, making it perfect for costumes like a princess or a mermaid.
After towel drying your hair, use our Platform Blowout Brush, which has four tools in one, to get to work. The plasma ionic technology dries hair faster so that you will be on your way to your Halloween party in no time, and it also eliminates pollutants that build up in your hair. Once your hair is dry, you can volumize, style, and curl, all with the same tool. We recommend finishing your look with our Variable Hold Dry Hair Spray, which will create the soft look you want without a crunchy or flaky mess.
