Blonde Hair


Leave a little sparkle everywhere you go dressed as everyone’s favorite blonde fairy. To steal Tink’s look, simply pull your hair up into a cute messy bun or “top knot”, making sure to style your bangs to the side—just like she does. Grab a green dress and some wings and get ready to spread your fairy magic!

Cher Horowitz

If you’re a fan of fairy tales, you won’t want to pass up the opportunity to dress up as a princess, even just for one night. Forget needing a Fairy Godmother—to get this magical look, just slip into a pretty blue gown, grab some elbow-length gloves, and style your locks in an elegant updo. 

Brown Hair


Grab your ruby slippers and get ready to travel down the yellow brick road to your nearest Halloween party dressed as Dorothy. Putting together this costume is as simple as clicking your heels together three times! You’ll simply need a blue gingham dress, a straw basket, and your trusty sidekick Toto by your side. As for the hair, you’ll want to style your locks in braided pigtails tied with blue gingham hair bows. 

Princess Leia

No matter what your plans are this year, the Force will surely be with you when you show up dressed as Star Wars beloved Princess Leia. In order to do this costume justice, you’ll want to make sure you rock her signature space buns. 

Holly Golightly

Pay tribute to one of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic roles by dressing up as the ever chic Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s the perfect excuse to wear your favorite LBD and pearls, as well as a sparkly tiara! Just make sure to pull your strands up into a twisted updo to really finish off the look.

Black Hair

Wonder Woman

You’ll be totally ready to save the day dressed as one of everyone’s favorite superheroes, Wonder Woman! Aside from rocking her signature Amazonian warrior get-up and her gold headpiece, you’ll want to make sure to recreate her gorgeous, voluminous waves. 


Try your hand at being queen for the night by transforming yourself into ancient Egypt’s most famous ruler, Cleopatra. Besides donning a white flowing robe, you’ll want to go heavy on the gold accessories and make sure to sport a fierce cat eye. As for the hair, grab some clip-on bangs, add some micro-braids to your locks, and adorn a few strands with some gold beads or thread for a super luxe look. 

Snow White

Be the fairest of them all when you show up dressed as Snow White this Halloween. While a wavy bob is sort of this Disney Princess’s signature hairstyle, don’t be afraid to switch things up and go for an intricate updo instead. Just don’t forget to add her adorable little red bow!

Red Hair
