  Halloween is coming, what are you ready to do? I mean, have you seen the Halloween aisle at Target lately? It’s been ransacked since August, so if you're looking for a sign to start planning your October 31 lewk, this is it. But don't worry - there are still other ways we can create a different Halloween look(including some easy Halloween makeup ideas, like bat makeup and alien makeup). But if you are not good at makeup or want a simple look, I highly suggest starting with a cool Halloween hairstyle instead, then filling in the rest of the look from there.

  In fact, Halloween hairstyles are 100% suitable for someone who likes simple decorations, and there's really a look for every hair type and skill level, including cute and spooky ponytails to Wednesday Addams braids. I know you need some inspiration right now. Hold me tight, these looks are sure to inspire you to stand out this Halloween.

1. This spooky messy bun for Halloween

  All you really need to make a hairstyle Halloween-themed is a few spooky accessories like these fake spiders. To keep your messy bun in place, lightly spritz your roots and ends with texturizing spray to give it some grit before styling.


2. This Harley Quinn hairstyle for Halloween

  This Halloween hairstyle doesn’t require any props or accessories, so it's perfect for anyone planning their look the night before Halloween. Take two sections of your hair, spray them with a pink and blue temporary hair dye, then wrap them into these cute lil buns. To finish, mist the ends of your hair to tie it all together.


3. This Ariel hairstyle for Halloween

  If you’re looking for an easy, low-maintenance Halloween hairstyle, opt for this Ariel look. Start by spraying your hair with red temporary dye (like L'Oreal Paris Colorista 1-Day Temporary Hair Color Spray or Color Bombz by Beyond the Zone Ruthless Red Temporary Hair Color Spray), then part your hair to the side, and pin a small piece back with these super-cute starfish hair clips


4. These upside-down braids for Halloween

  These upside-down braids are such a cute Halloween hairstyle that can be worn at work, school, whatever. Most of your time recreating this look will be spent upside down as you French braid each side of your hair, then once you’ve wrapped and pinned the ends into two double buns, stick a couple fake spiders on the back of each one to really amp up the look.


5. Low Halloween ponytail with a zipper part

  A zipper part is such a simple way to add a spooky ~edge~ to your Halloween hairstyle. Plus, the two braids feeding into a low ponytail give it a really ~sophisticated~ look. Check out their zipper-part hair tutorial to help you complete the whole style.


6. Braided Halloween hairstyle with ribbons

  If you want to keep your Halloween look this year cute and simple, try adding some orange and black ribbons. Braid the ribbons into your hair the whole way down, then once you’ve tied them off, pull out pieces of the braids to each side to recreate this cute Halloween hairstyle.


7. This Jasmine Halloween hair idea

  Disney Princesses are always a fun way to style your hair on Halloween. This Jasmine Halloween hairstyle can be recreated if you have really long hair (by curling the front sections of your hair back and securing it with pins and tying the rest in a low bubble ponytail hairstyle), or by picking up a Princess Jasmine wig, as pictured here.


8. This Joker Halloween hairstyle

  How sleek does this Joker hairstyle look? To get your slicked-back hair to stay in place on Halloween, start by painting or spraying on a temporary green hair dye (leaving the bottom third of your hair alone to get this reverse dip-dye look), and once it’s dry, dampen and comb it all back, then spray with a lot of strong-hold hairspray—seriously, spray until it doesn't move.

 9. Devil horn buns for Halloween

  NGL, this devil horn Halloween hairstyle looks pretty complicated, but one quick viewing of this YouTube tutorial by creator Andreyha Seraphin actually proves the opposite. Just take a front section of your hair and put it into small pigtails. Then after dampening each pigtail, wrap them around into two buns, keeping the pigtails flat so they create a cone shape rather than a donut-shaped bun. And if you want that ~devilish~ red color, grab a red temporary hair dye to spray your hair.


Hope these looks can inspire Halloween costumes.

Let's be the brightest boy for Halloween!!!
