9 Halloween Hair Tutorials, Because Great Makeup Deserve Great Hair

There are a lot of really spectacular makeup tutorials going around, and that's awesome, but what's great makeup without great hair? I've assembled a collection of cute, spooky, and fun Halloween hair tutorials, because it's not all about the makeup. I mean, seriously, who goes through all the effort of doing cool make up and finding the perfect costume, only to ignore the hair? The answer is no one.

A lot of these videos feature hair looks so iconic that they serve as the main focal point of the costume, so the rest of the look can be something simple and complementary. Some of the Halloween hairstyles are cute enough to wear year round. Well, I suppose all of them are cute enough to wear year round if the zombie apocalypse happens or you have a lot of horror show viewing parties.

I've chosen both complicated and simple styles, in case you're pressed for time or you want a challenge. Most of them require simple tools, like curling irons, a comb and some hairspray. Pretty much all of them require you to buy stock in bobby pins, so come prepared. And remember, these Halloween hair tutorials are just a starting point for you to create something that's your own.
