5 Spooky Styles To Try For Halloween

5 Spooky Styles To Try For Halloween

Dear Diary,

Spooky season is officially here, and I could not be more excited to share some of my favorite Halloween styles with all of you! 

1. Princess Leia

You don't need an intensely elaborate costume to pull of Princess Leia from Star Wars (though it always helps) — you'll be a dead ringer for the character with her iconic hair buns alone. This look can be created with just bobby pins, hairspray, and two rolled-up socks with the toes cut out (but you can use donut-shaped hair buns if you have them).

Split your hair down the middle and make two ponytails — you want to tie them above your ears and as close to your hairline as possible. From there, you pull either ponytail through the donut-shaped socks and roll them from the ends of the hair upward. To finish, secure it with bobby pins and lots of hairspray and you are done.

2. Fairy Lights

Want to bring a little extra flair to your Elsa costume? We've got it handled. Grab your Xo Britt Clip-in extensions and create a gorgeous braided look using tiny fairy lights. 

Simply make a mermaid braid, and then weaved in a string of tiny lights through it. The secret trick? Hide the battery under the braid.

3. Medusa Braids

This amazing Medusa hairstyle is perfect to pair with cool makeup and a Greek goddess-style outfit!

To achieve this look, use a comb to part your hair into four sections, and then braid each of the front two sections, loosening the ends once completed. You will then crossed the braid one in front of the other, pinning them just behind her ears on either side. Finish off this look by weaving in plastic snakes through each loosened braid end, letting them peek out as you say fit!

4. Rosie the Riveter

For my history buffs, Rosie the Riveter is a great and easy Halloween costume to pull off. 

You can accomplish this look by separating a large, triangular front section of hair and pulling the rest of the hair into a messy bun. Take that same triangle section and curl around a half-inch curling iron (with each curl facing in alternating directions). 

Repeat that same process for curls at the front of the hairline and ears, sprayed it with hairspray, separated and softened the tendrils with their fingertips, and finish the look off with a red bandana tied up top.

5. Skeleton Braids

Whether you're going as a skeleton or simply want to add some edge to your Halloween hair, I think creating this safety-pinned look that meets all those needs is worth trying out!

To achieve this style, make a deep part, taking the smaller section and creating two braids.  You can leave the larger section out to flow freely. Then, grab your favorite silver or gold safety pins to connect the two braids from the hairline to the ends of the braids.

That’s it for now, babe, but don’t forget to tune in next week and let me know which spooky style you tried! Stay connected with me on Instagram at @xobrittaldean, and use the hashtag #xobrittbabe for a chance to be featured!
