3 Heatless Halloween Hairstyles You Can Recreate With Ease
The name of the game this Halloween is to create a style that’ll last you the whole night, works with a variety of costume choices, and doesn’t rely on heated tools. Albeit a bit of a challenge, we think that these three key looks will be all the inspo you need for some killer Halloween hairstyles.
Works well for: fairies, Anime characters, Princess Leia, anything glittery.
Difficulty level: 1/5
Space buns are perhaps the easiest hairstyle to create, bar your simple ponytail, of course. All you need is a few elastics and a brush, and you’re ready to go! They’re also extremely versatile, with a ton of different variations you can make to spice things up a little.
If you’re just after entry level space buns, it’s a matter of whipping your hair up into two buns on either side of your hair. Use a brush to wrangle your locks into two high ponytails, ensuring your part is in the middle and well-defined. Secure with hair ties and voila–that’s all there is to it!
For a twist on this classic Halloween hairstyle, section out about a third of your hair on either side and repeat the above steps. Leave the rest of your hair loose and flowing for a totally 90s, Spice Girls-esque throwback look.
Another variation you can make is adding a few braids in. Section off a small amount of hair on either side of your part, braiding back towards the crown. Twist the remaining lengths into mini buns and you’ve created a gorgeous braid-bun hybrid that is sure to stand out.
Plus, don’t forget to sparkle it up with a little glitter–or a lot! Sprinkle it in your roots, then securing with a non-crunchy hairspray to guarantee it’ll stay in place throughout the night. This is the perfect look for all the wannabe fairies and mermaids out there.
