Tips and Tricks | Cosmetology School LawrenceThree Hauntingly Beautiful Halloween Hairstyles

Forget about the cliché, pre-packaged Halloween costumes, and work with what you’ve already got this year! While most people may pick their costumes first, our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence, Kansas, encourage you to try a mesmerizing hairstyle as the inspiration for your look. Check out some of our favorite Halloween hairstyles this year, and find out how to achieve them at home!

Wicked Waves

If you like the basic witch vibes, you can still brew up the perfect Halloween hairstyle by adding some dramatic and festive highlights! Before blow-drying your hair, use a root-boosting mousse for some added volume, and follow up by applying some texturizing spray to the fully dried locks. Using a large barrel curling iron, create sporadic and soft waves throughout your hair, gently running your fingers through the strands to create larger and more separated waves. Finally, spritz with your favorite strong-hold hairspray and party the night away!

Party Ponytail

This polished, Barbie-inspired ponytail is a simple, eye-catching look to accompany any costume. Just part your hair horizontally with a comb, starting from the top of one ear and extending it to the other ear. Secure the bottom half of the hair tightly with an elastic band right below the crown, and then gather the top half of the hair and secure it with a separate elastic above the first one. To finish the look, our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence recommend wrapping a small strand of hair around both elastic bands and securing it with a bobby pin. For added security and hold, finish the look off with some hairspray and smoothing hair oil!

Bewitching Bubble Braids

Dress up your holiday costume with some bubble braids! Whether you’re ready to recreate Princess Jasmine’s iconic look or are just interested in trying something new, bubble braids are a staple hairstyle that will never fail you. Apply some styling mousse from the roots of your hair to the ends to help create volume and tame potential flyaways. Then, you can place your hair into a slicked-back ponytail, securing it as close to the scalp as possible before wrapping another hair tie a few inches down your ponytail. Repeat this process until you reach the end of the ponytail, and use your fingers to pull apart and tease each individual section. Don’t forget this step, as it will create the desired “bubble” effect!
