Halloween is almost here, and for the spookiest among us, it's a pretty exciting time. The best part of the holiday is pulling of the perfect costume. Depending on what you decide to be, you might need to hunt for some of the most over-the-top, wild, and unique Halloween wigs to complete your outfit.
Although some higher-quality wigs may come with a heftier price tag for your costume, think if it this way: If you know how to look after a wig, it can last you for many years and multiple costumes. If you learn how to style a wig too, then you can buy yourself some versatility. Instead of just wearing it for Halloween, you can wear it to the club on a Friday night because why not?
While you're on the hunt for the coolest, most unique wigs out there, consider the investment and just how crucial it is to your costume. Sometimes, your wig is the costume. It may feel decadent to spend more than $20 on a wig when your past wigs all came from drug stores or were included in your costume, but for the quality and originality of these pieces, the pricier ones are totally worth it and the low-cost wigs are too good to pass up.

11. Marie Antoinette
Deluxe Marie Antoinette Wig, $39.99, amazon.com
This Marie Antoinette wig may seem like you could only wear it for a period costume, but wearing it with a more modern look could create some cool contrasts — maybe a Hipster Marie Antoinette costume? Imagine the possibilities.
Pair your cool wig with a contrasting outfit for an edgier look or conversely, or stay as true and authentic to your character as possible with a wig that perfectly replicates that character's look. Either way, be comfortable in the knowledge that no matter who or what you're dressed up as, your wig is the best one in the room.
