2019 Halloween Costume Ideas and Inspiration
According to the National Retail Federation Halloween spending will reach a near three year record amount this year with people turning to friends, celebrities and social media for visual inspiration with 25% of women turning to Pinterest and 19% of men turning to YouTube for the latest costume ideas. Plan to dress up but not sure what you’re wearing? Here are some last minute costume ideas and how to personalize these themes into a costume that is unique for you.
Whether it’s a princess, witch or fairy, here are some Halloween Hair Ideas:
Game of Thrones Princess. Picture yourself as the Queen of Dragons conquering the North? Or a princess high in the castle tower looking over her kingdom – whoever you choose to be — the game of thrones is all about the hair, volumes, braids and curls of hair. If your hair isn’t quite long or thick enough – blend your natural hair with Barely Xtensions to kick it up a notch.
Witchy Woman. When thinking about Halloween, a witch is one of the first icons that comes to mind. The witch costume still trends as a favorite –but why not put a new spin on it? Be a good witch, bad witch or witchy woman with a special theme. Use your favorite movie, cartoon, photo or story to be your guide or get really creative and think about just portraying the split personality of a witchy woman. Split your hair colors and styles right down the middle, along with your makeup and wardrobe. Or go all-out zombie style with “Walking Dead” zombie zone; half human, half zombie. Use color hair inserts like those from Barely Xtensions to add fun color sporadically, wherever you want it to appear.
Superhero (or Villan!). Avengers seems to be all the rage this season, but you can always channel and create your own Superhero. For a last minute costume, cat woman is easy. Combine basic black, wardrobe staples that are already in your closet: Black long sleeve shirt, black tight pants, black boots, fitted belt, etc. Put on a pair of cat ears and there you go, purr-fect.
Unicorn, Fairy or Mermaid. Want the look of something magical, mystical or imagined but need the hairdo to go along with it? For these costumes try the colored nymph braid. Start by clipping the Instant Color Clips into your hair in a few different colors depending on what look you want. Create a half up half down ponytail to start, topsy tailing it to create a soft twist. Take the remainder of the hair and create a second ponytail underneath the first topsy tailing it as well. Finish with three-strand braiding the remaining hair for a woven, loose dreamy style.
