When fashion can be frightening

Runway season is when designers, make-up artists and hairstylists can try the weirdest, wackiest, and sometimes sexiest looks they can imagine. Isn't Halloween basically the same thing? These nine styles will enliven even the most basic costume, taking your look to the next level.

Hairstyles for Halloween

Pascal Le Segretain

Priscilla Presley

The Designer: Valentino

The Look: Kaia Gerber’s sky-high hair can become a number of costumes: See a ‘60s Priscilla Presley, Dolly Parton, or a Barbarella take. Hairstylist Guido Palau added six hairpieces to Gerber’s hair and then sealed with Redken Forceful 23 hairspray. To recreate, invest in a lot of hair extensions, even more, hairspray, and a wiry round brush.

Rockabilly baby

The Designer: Chanel

The Look: Jailhouse rock, but make it fashion. Channel your inner rockabilly with these faux pompadour mohawks that debuted on the Chanel Haute Couture runways. Bonus: Your hair will be up and out of your face all Halloween night so you can get down to some old school Elvis.

Jackie O.

The Designer: Moschino

The Look: The '60s first lady is a classic Halloween costume, and requires perfectly sculpted hair. For this Jackie O slay, give yourself a deep part and curl your hair outwards, making sure to not separate your curls. Once set, carefully brush through for uniform waves.

Wig out

The Designer: Jeremy Scott

The Look: The easiest Halloween costume is a neon wig. From Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman to Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation, the choppy wig is a staple for the ultimate cool girls of the silver screen. All you need is a silky wig (doesn't have to be pricey), a pair of scissors, and a mysterious attitude.

Jane Austen heroine

The Designer: Christian Dior

The Look: This windswept look would naturally be seen on Elizabeth Bennet taking her daily walk through the English countryside. To get this look, hairstylist Guido Palau utilised two different curling irons for irregular curls, then he pulled it back into a low ponytail.

Wakanda tribe member

The Designer: Jean Paul Gaultier

The Look: Black Panther had some of the coolest costumes of any film this year. You can take your look directly from Lupita Nyong'o or experiment as a member of the all-female Wakanda army with a shaved head or braided hairstyle. For added interest, paint your roots in gold and let it fade into your forehead.

Gold digger

The Designer: Maison Margiela

The Look: Bella Hadid's gold hair was a massive statement last couture season, and you can take it as inspiration for any number of gilded costumes: a gold digger (with a shovel in hand), C3PO's friend, or a punny twist on Gold-i-locks.

Hamilton

The Designer: Maison Margiela

The Look: If you want more than a wig for your forefather's costume, this cheeky shaving cream look is easily achievable. We don't imagine it'll last all night though...
