2. Spider Web
Want to impress the guests at the Halloween party with the icky spider, then here is a simple, fun and a bit crafty hairstyle you can try. Pull all your hair into a tight ponytail just above the nape. Divide the ponytail into two sections and braid them separately. Pin the braids on the backside of the head to make the letter “O”. Take a woven spider web and attach it to the “O” braid. Secure it using pins and add the creepy black spider to finish the look.
The spooky mummy can be an exciting Halloween theme that is fun, but not too scary. If you have been thinking what hairstyle you can wear with your mummy themed costume, try this one. Go for a high pony first. Attach a toy skeleton to the ponytail and start wrapping the skeleton and the ponytail with a small section of hair pulled from one side of the ponytail. Make sure the skull, hands and legs of the skeleton are showing when you wrap the ponytail tight. Secure the ends using a band and your mummy hair is done.
4. Black Cat
Black cat costume is not just sweet and cute, but adorable and suits all ages in a Halloween party. If you are planning for a black cat look this Halloween party, try this easy hairdo and see how a simple hairdo can elevate your entire look. Go for a pony at your crown region and make it a little fluffy by teasing it.
