The only time of year when a bow made of hair is okay…

20 Oct

We’ve talked before about iconic hairstyles and how they can define a personality. The hairstyles are almost always universally recognized, or if not, at least recognized by all of those who follow pop culture.

Halloween is one of the best times to think about iconic hair. When planning your costume do you start with the clothes? Do you ever think about how your hair could make or break the costume?

Think about it. There are certain hairstyles that will define you as a certain character or celebrity regardless of what you cover your body with. You could be wearing an astronaut suit but if you have a tall, curly blue wig on, you’ll still be Marge Simpson… just as an astronaut, right?

Here are some of our favourite ideas for Halloween costumes that are all about the hair… I guarantee you’ll recognize most, if not all, of these memorable styles.

And please keep in mind the reason they make such great costumes is that you really should never have this kind of hair on a day-to-day basis… Snooki, I’m looking at you.

Happy costume planning!
