We’ve compiled the selection of over 30 most creative Halloween hair color ideas, to give you plenty of hair inspiration for a cool style for Fright Night.
Halloween Hair Color Ideas: How to Get the Look
Most of the more creative Halloween hairstyles are best done in a salon, with an expert at hand.
Getting the color shade right is something that an experienced hair stylist will be able to help you with, and you’re unlikely to achieve similar results if you try that at home by yourself.
If you would like some DIY looks, try to opt for something simple using a single color or easy highlights.
If you have dark hair naturally, getting the right light shade may require a bit more work and the results may vary from the reference pictures you have.
If you want to experiment with hair color on Halloween, but don’t want to commit to a drastic color change, you can always find cheap hair extensions in a number of colors.
Using extensions gives you the flexibility to update your look in many different ways, without having to visit a hair salon each time.
There are many ways to execute these Halloween hair color ideas. If you love the styles here but don’t want to take the chance, you can always stick to some spooky Halloween accessories and clip-on highlights to make your hair Halloween-ready.
