With the Spooky Season in full swing, Halloween is the topic on everyone’s lips. To get you in the mood for a spooky night out, who better to provide inspiration for Halloween hair than our favourite celebrities?
Neil Capstick, founder of Neäl & Wølf professional hair care shares some of the best spooky celebrity hair looks over the years, as well as some tips and the best products to help you try them for yourself.
As glamorous as they are spooky, here are 4 of the best celebrity Halloween hair looks over years:
Holly Willoughby’s Harley Quinn hair
Always game to dress up for Halloween, Holly Willoughby wore a Harley Quinn costume for a spooky episode of Celebrity Juice a few years back.
For those with blonde hair, whether natural or dyed, brightening products like Neäl & Wølf’s BLONDE Purple Brightening Shampoo are essential for maintaining Harley Quinn-style platinum locks. For her famous red and blue pigtails, a temporary dye is your best bet if you’re only wanting to dress up for a day. But if you want to commit to the playful style, make sure to maintain the colour with a sulphate-free shampoo such as RITUAL Daily Cleansing Shampoo, to help keep the dye from fading.
Dianne Buswell’s curly quiff
In her trademark shocking red hair, Strictly’s Diane Buswell looks scarily good with her pompadour-style do. A tall and voluminous quiff is joined by curly waves at the back for a perfect vampiric look.
A firm hold hairspray such as CONTROL Flexible Styling Hairspray is essential to maintain a structural look like this, whilst both the quiff and the curls require a lot of volume. Techniques such as back-combing, paired with volume-giving products like ELEVATE Volumising Lotion can help to achieve this in-your-face look.
Fearne Cotton’s messy fringe
Taking on Uma Thurman’s character from Kill Bill, Fearne Cotton has styled her blonde hair with a textured fringe. The layers give her locks a cascading effect, mirroring those of the film’s iconic assassin.
To recreate this rough and ready look, ask your hairstylist for a messy layered fringe and style it with a buildable dry texture spray. Neäl & Wølf’s TEXTURE Dry Texture & Finishing Spray helps you create dimension and movement in your locks, whilst also doubling as a dry shampoo.
Blake Lively’s retro glam
Looking like a golden age Hollywood screen siren, Blake Lively’s rolled fringe is the ultimate vintage look. Accompanied by glossy flowing waves, this style oozes retro glamour and decadence.
Firm hold hairspray and rollers can help achieve the fringe look, but a curling wand can also be used if you're short on time. If you do use heat styling, don’t forget to use a thermal protective spray like GUARD Heat Protection Spray to protect your hair.
A style like this is all about luxury, so it’s important that your hair looks thick and healthy. ELEVATE Volumising Lotion gives your hair body and bounce, banishing dry, limp tresses. For an extra touch of indulgence, finish your look with GLOW Super Shine Spray for deep, lasting shine.
