Easy Halloween Makeup and Hair Ideas

One of the best parts of Halloween is creating a fun makeup and a hairstyle to finish off your costume. Sure, for hair you could just buy a costume wig, and for the makeup you could just buy a mask but that's no fun! Using your own makeup kit and with some hair products and accessories and a dab of creativity, you can style your own Halloween look and steal the show.

Suger skull (Calavera in Spanish) commonly used in Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead and the origin of artistic patterns used for decoration trace all the way back to Aztec civilizations from 14th to 16th centuries. These representations and creative patterns are truly amazing and makes it an ideal inspiration for tattoo, face painting and Halloween make up.

With some back combing and fake cob webs draped over for effect, you've got yourself a witch's fright ‘do. Tangle a rubber bat in your tresses or pin on a few plastic spiders. You can also spray your hair with temporary hair color in pastel colors like faded gray, lavender or pink to create that final touch!

For the wavy hair, pull it into a loose up-do with wavy tendrils falling around your face and neck. A simple dramatic effect will do nicely on textured hair!

Don't despair if your hair is short. Hairdo can be as easy or as elaborate as you wish to make it. The trick is in accessories and colors. A simple headdress of leaves makes the point nicely, as does a fake braid in your natural color wrapped around the head.
