Best Hollywood Halloween Hairstyles

Harness your inner Edward Scissorhands with some strong-hold hair clay or gel and plenty of back-combing, add a touch of glamour as Morticia Addams with some gentle curls and a centre parting or opt for a cute spiked fringe like the Lydia Deetz character in Beetlejuice.


Get Crimping for Halloween

Get your crimpers out of storage in time for October 31st.  Crimping is a quick and easy way to add a touch of Halloween spookiness to your hairstyle as you can see from these fabulous hairdos.  If you don’t have any crimpers then start back-combing for a wonderfully Gothic hairstyle and, if you dare, add a rich black or deep red colour to help you stand out from the crowd.


X-Factor Halloween Hair Ideas

They certainly know how to put on a show on ITV’s X Factor show.  We love Cher Lloyd‘s beehive with Morticia-style curls and Nicole Scherzinger’s long crimped hair with gorgeous hair accessory… but our FAVOURITE has to be Katie Waissel‘s stunning massive white wispy upstyle.


Stunning Halloween Hair Colour

We can create the most incredible hair colours in time for your Halloween event (or at any time of the year!!)  Bright oranges, jet blacks and fashion greens and blues are popular hair colours for Halloween.  If you’re not ready for a permanent hair colour change, come in and talk to our Wella Master Colour Expert Dean Vinning and his team of expert colour technicians about how we can temporarily transform your hair colour.


Messy Upstyles for Halloween

If you’re heading for a party and you want a more understated look that gives a nod to Halloween rather than a full-on ghoulish hairdo, we’d recommend a messy upstyle.  You’ll look bang on trend and, with dramatic make-up, you can create a super sexy look for October 31st.


Sexy Men’s Hair at Halloween

When it comes to creating cool men’s hairstyles for Halloween, it’s all about using the right products for your hair.   As well as cutting your hair into a great style that perfectly suits you, our professional and friendly stylists can also advise you on the best products to achieve the look you want.

Robert Pattinson looks stylish, sexy and a little spooky as the vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight films – a look we can recreate for our male clientele.

The second image is a more texturised cut, complete with a flash of hair colour if you want to be more edgy with your look.  Men with long hair can achieve lots of different Halloween hairstyles.  This look is achieved by sweeping the hair and fixing it in place to give an asymmetric look.


Did You Know…?

  • The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows’ Evening also known as Hallowe’en or All Hallows’ Eve.  We celebrate Halloween on the evening of October 31st.
  • Halloween originates from the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, a celebration of the end of the harvest season.
  • The ancient Gaels believed that the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped on October 31.  They feared that the dead would come back to life and cause havoc to their crops.
  • Masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic and appease the evil spirits.
