Halloween is the time of year when anything works. Creepy, bright, clashing colors, and plain and simple weird! The more creative the better, and with that in mind, I’ve brought you 26 of the best Halloween hair ideas. There’s something for everyone and every skill level. From fun, to creepy and bright to subtle, there’s a hair idea for you!
1. Devil Hair Horns
Feel like a devil? Now’s your chance to show your true colors! Just kidding, and all joking aside, this devil-horn hair is pretty fabulous. This hair look is for those who like to make a grand statement.
You can try it out in any color, my bet is, it would look awesome in red and oranges too!
2. Spider Web Hair
Subtle, but still Halloween, this hair look is for those who want a part in Halloween, but without any drama! You can never go wrong with a classical pony, add in some spider webs and you’re Halloween ready!
3. Batty Orange Hair
Orange and black together are the classical Halloween colors. Turn your hair into this brilliant shade of orange and add some bat clips for a true Halloween experience!
4. Halloween Braids
Looking for a pretty hairstyle this Halloween? Elegant and classy, this braid hair look has the Halloween orange and black colors but it doesn’t have the gore.
5. Skull In Your Hair
This subtle skull is pure genius! It looks elegant, yet hidden there is a full-on Halloween tribute! It’s a hard look to recreate, and even if it’s too hard for you, you’ve got to appreciate the creativity!
6. Spooky Hair Clips
One of the easiest hair looks to recreate, yet just as effective. All you need is Halloween-inspired clips and a hat and you’re good to go!
7. Spiders, Spiders Everywhere
This hairstyle is not for those with arachnophobia. Just looking at this hairstyle, sends shivers down my spine. But if you are normal, and don’t mind spiders, this is a great and easy Halloween hairstyle!
8. Halloween Hair Colors
Keeping the style simple, so all the attention goes to the colors. This hairstyle is full of colors and fun, with the dominant colors being purple, orange and green. It doesn’t get much more Halloween than that!
Use hair chalk for this look, you may not want to be left with colorful hair once Halloween is over!
9. Pumpkin Top Bun
Pumpkins aren’t only good for decorating doors. Create your own pumpkin out of your hair!
The fun part about this hairstyle is that it’s really easy, yet highly effective! Simply make a top bun, spray it orange, stick something in the middle, and add some decorations. You don’t need to be a hair stylist to create this one!
10. Crazy Halloween Hair
The crazier your Halloween hair is, the more fun you’ll have! Well, at least when you do your hair:)
This hairstyle is not only crazy but also fun. The trick to getting the braids to stay in place is to use a wire and braid around it. If you look closely, you can see that’s what the model has done.
Her makeup is also fab! Check out more Halloween makeup ideas.
11. Pull Through Skull Braid
Pull-through braids are one of my favourite braids for the simple reason that they are so easy to do, yet look like a work of art! Add some skulls peeking through and you’ve got yourself a Halloween hairstyle!
12. Halloween Balayage
So technically, this is not balayage because the black and orange are not really highlights! But they have the same effect and it looks gorgeous so who cares anyway?!
13. Blue Spooky Hair
Think of a dark night, with bones and skeletons. That’s exactly what this hairstyle is! Spooky in name and style!
14. Raven Horn Hair
Here’s another horn-inspired hairstyle, only this time it has a darker take on it. Inspired by the raven, it’s spooky and scary!
15. Spider Bun Hair
Who knew top buns were so versatile? Creating this massive spider is easy and super effective. Again, it’s not for those with arachnophobia!
16. Scary Crimped Hair
Crimped hair is the perfect hairstyle for a scary dramatic hair look! Add some streaks of red for blood and you’ll have everyone running away from you!
17. Colorful Halloween Braids
You can never go wrong with beautiful braids. Add some Halloween colors and you’re good to go!
This hairstyle looks rather complex, but the truth is braids are a lot easier to master than you think! Once you know, the skies are the limit with the looks you can create!
18. Fiery Black Hair
For those with jet-black hair, an easy way to add some Halloween festivity is to color the front few hairs in the color of your choice. This red and black contrast gives a dramatic effect!
19. Spooky Glam Hair
Give your elegant hair a Halloween upgrade with these festive bats and diamonds. Obviously, use black and orange!
20. Fire, Fire Hair
Don’t mistake this gorgeous lob for a real fire, because honestly, it’s firey! However, it’s also stunning and ticks the boxes for Halloween too!
21. Colorful Skeleton Hair
For the more colorful ones out there, we have this long wavy hair featuring all the bright colors of Halloween. Add some skeleton hands for a little spookiness!
22. Pirate Hair
Love your dreads? Add a Halloween touch to them with some black string and grungy accessories!
23. Creepy Spider Swirls
Even though these spiders are purple, they are far too realistic and scary! Spider hair is a common theme on Halloween and the simple reason for that is that spiders are scary! Yep, it’s not for those with arachnophobia.
However, it’s a dramatic and fun hairstyle, color your hair green for the full effect!
24. Poisin Ivy Hair
Spread the poison with this poison ivy-inspired hair. If you already have red hair, this look is easy to recreate! Add some green leaves for the ivy and you’re done!
25. The Dark Fairy
Fairies can sometimes be evil, at least on Halloween they are! While the hair and horns are impressive, the makeup and nails complete the look. Check out these makeup and nail inspirations for Halloween!
26. Pumpkin Colored Hair
Use the colors of a pumpkin to create this pumpkin-inspired hairstyle! It works brilliantly with a short lob and fringe!
Halloween hairstyles are a fun way to celebrate the day and I hope we’ve inspired you with these 26 fabulous creative hair ideas!
