Easy Halloween Hairstyles For That Last-Minute Costume

Halloween is just around the corner, and we could all use a little celebration. 2020 has been pretty stressful, so don't worry if you've completely forgotten about your costume. But there's finally a fun reason to put on a mask, and we don't want you to miss out! Some people love to go all out with their costumes, employing the use of wild makeup and spooky get-ups.

But others like to be comfortable and keep it more casual. If you consider yourself a more laid-back Halloween participant and you're wracking your brain for a last-minute costume, don't fret. We've put together four super easy costume ideas, all based on very doable hairstyles. Keep reading to figure out your 2020 Halloween look!

Party Animal

 

Plan on getting a little wild this Halloween? Whether you consider yourself a real-life party animal or not, animals or pets make for adorable costume ideas. Space buns are perfect for creating the ears of almost any animal. They work for puppies, deer, cats, bears, and more with a bit of face paint. Most of the time, you can paint on simple whiskers and a nose. And, if you're dressing up with a squad, you can always suggest doing a Mean Girls Halloween and dressing as Karen (who was a mouse, duh!). The trick to creating perfect space bun ears is to place them higher on your crown. Start with two pigtails and wrap the length of your locks around the elastics. Secure with bobby pins and spray with finisher.

 

Retro Ringlets

This is an easy costume for our ladies with a closet full of vintage pieces. And don't let anyone tell you that being fashionable isn't a real costume. Tell your friends you're a time-traveler this year and bring out the best of your 1970s collection. Don't forget to add a groovy pair of glasses and a voluminous hairstyle. The more volume, the better. That's why we suggest breaking out the curling iron and styling your tresses to disco-perfection. Make sure you spritz your locks with hairspray, so the curls maintain their bounce as you dance your way through a 2020 Halloween. Another tip? Grab glasses with a light orange tint. Not only are they so'70s, but they'll keep you from utter darkness if you're partying in the moonlight.

 

Spooky Sleek

 

Dying to create a look that's scary-chic? Opt for the classic vampire, or lean into some witchy vibes with a stick-straight style. This look works best for a witch costume if you have particularly long hair. When straightening your tresses, don't forget some thermal protectant as you'll be applying heat from the stylerdirectly to your locks. Additionally, section your hair off to achieve ideal sleekness. Add a smokey eye and some blood-red lipstick to make it pop. Finally, top off this look with a stylishly spooky hat. It doesn't necessarily need to be a witch hat, as almost any black hat will complete the look. If you're spending the night casting love spells, wear lip stain rather than lipstick so that it won't smudge when you're canoodling.

Ballerina Bun

 One of our favorite girly costumes this year is definitely the ballerina. If you decide to dress up as one, you can take it in one of two directions: Poised and polished or total Black Swan. Regardless of whether you're a classic or scary ballerina, you'll need a slicked-back ballerina bun to get the look. You can use a bun-maker for this style or bobby-pins to keep it clean. A small amount of gelwill go far in smoothing out the hair on your crown. It'll also make sure that flyaways remain at bay throughout the night. Twirl your way into Halloween by pairing this hairstyle with a leotard and a tulle tutu.
