That's why you should just ditch the wig this year and find Halloween costumes where your hair color (brunette in this case) actually comes in handy.

Instead of putting up with spending a lot of money on a wig and then dealing with it feeling hot and itchy all night, you can just pick a Halloween costume that works with the hair you already have. If you happen to be a brunette, then you're in luck! There's so many killer costumes out there for girls with light brown, dark brown, and black hair.
