Time to bring out your most desired and daring costumes. Getting a chance to play dress up is especially fun for those who dare to be bold with their hair choices. After all when do we get the chance to play dress up with no excuse?

We all know the feeling of putting in work to create the best costume, so here is how you can accomplish iconic hair styles this Halloween that will win you first place in any contest.

Josephine Baker

If you are looking for a dazzling style, evocative of the 1920s, look no further than Josephine Baker. This style is key for anyone with a pixie cut. What you will need is a fine tooth comb, mousse and Eco Styling Gel. Begin with freshly washed hair, then once it is almost dry add a generous amount of mousse. Part your hair with your fine tooth comb and comb it, proceed to smooth it with the eco gel until it is laid down. Use the end of the comb to make “c” shapes and hold your hair down with your fingers, make sure you are making this shape in opposite directions until your hair begins to look like waves.

Farrah Fawcett

For a fun 1970s hairstyle relive this Charlie’s Angels iconic hair flip. Farrah Fawcett’s hair style is all about flicks at the front. Apply mousse thoroughly to clean damp hair making sure all hair is covered. Using a professional hairdryer and a round bristle, blow dry your hair upwards in section. In those sections, create waves with your hair using a large curling wand. Finish off this style by using a wide toothed comb to soften your curls then apply a large volume of hairspray to hold your hair throughout the day (or night).



Join the likes of stars such as Kim Kardashian West and Nicki Minaj and complete your glittery costume with Cher’s straight glossy hair. Unless you were born with naturally straight hair your first step to achieving this look is to protect your hair before applying any heat by using a heat protectant spray like Silk Elements’ MegaSilk Olive Heat protection. Once your hair is dry, start straightening your hair from the bottom layers working your way to the top for those sleek inches.


This hairstyle is definitely the simplest  to accomplish. To execute this look you will need a black bob with front bangs, so hit up your nearest beauty supply store or Halloween shop for this type of wig. Begin by separating your hair into several segments then braid it down in a simple single braid technique. Pull this hairstyle together with a hair accessory and do not be in deNile about how good this look is.
