Tis’ the season for spooky celebrations. Feeling stumped when it comes to costumes for curly hair? You’re in luck. We’ve compiled some amazing costumes that leverage your best asset.
OMG, I meant your hair.
It’s pretty safe to say that @carolinfrancheli SLAYED as Sandy from Grease. I mean c’mon. Big hair and this costume? They go together (Like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong—sorry I couldn’t help myself). Pro tip: Pump up the volume on your curls by mixing a little Frizz-Free Volumizing Foam into your styling cocktail.
A few simple accessories let’s you embrace your curls (and your inner sass) to become the beloved Hillary Banks. Top the look off with a black bowler had, and before you know it you and @thecurlybee will be chillin’ out, maxin’, relaxin’ all cool, trick or treating for candy outside of the school.
Pebbles, Wilma, and Fred may have all had straight hair, but @MzBiancaRenee has us convinced that curls had a place in Bedrock. Her curls add some serious spunk to this Flinstones-inspired costume. All you need to finish the look is a dinosaur bone…
It doesn’t take much to pull off a last minute vampire costume. Just get creative with makeup like @lynnkatee. The best part is that any texture works with this look but if you’re loving Lynn’s volume, check out a tutorial on how to get it, right here.
They call them mermaid waves for a reason people. @IndiaBatsonBeauty’s hair adds the perfect touch to her under-the-sea inspired costume. Curls work with this costume too (see @ck_frias for inspo). She brings out a mystical side by adorning her makeup with fun blue hues inspired by the ocean.
There’s about a 1,000 ways to be witchy on Halloween, but we love how @VCoral87 added spiders to her curls for some extra spook-factor. Because her hair is textured, the plastic spiders sit still sans pins.
@alexiskristiana embraced her mane quite literally by transforming herself into a lioness for Halloween. We love how she created two mini top buns to represent her ears. It’s easy to keep up-do styles in place with the help of Flexible Hold Hairspray.
@RisasRizos channeled curly character Jessie Spano from Saved by the Bell. She topped her hair off with a fabric headband, but this is a good chance to let your sleep scrunchie shine.
@GlamMeUp tucked her curls around a glittering headband, before tying them up in a bun to create a flapper-inspired ‘do. We love that the beading on the headband contrasts with her dark hair color.
