2020 Halloween hair ideas

If you’re feeling a chill coming in from your cracked-open window, you know what that means. Fall has made its entrance and there is no going back. When we think of Fall, we inevitably think of Halloween. There are some obvious things that come to mind when we think of Halloween like candy, costumes, and trick or treating but there are also reasons why those things aren’t as obvious this year. If you’re a big Halloween fan, you know that you can make anything feel like the cozy, spooky Halloween you love. 

This year, we encourage everyone to include Halloween in your self care. Let your inner child take the reigns and make a fort out of pillows or a cinema out of a Netflix Party marathon of Halloween movies. Maybe this is the year you buy a fancy spooky themed bath bomb, put on a face mask and eat candy. Maybe this is the year you try your hand at some cool Halloween hair and makeup just to have fun. 

We’ve always looked forward to seeing amazing, talented people try their hand at fun Halloween looks, recreate TV show makeup, tease their hair all the way up with our products. All year we look forward to the one night a year where everyone can express their creativity even if it’s a little last minute. This year is no different, here’s some ideas and inspiration to get you to dust off your makeup palettes and get into the spooky spirit:

  • Verb Products used to create the look: Ghost Prep, Strong Hairspray, Blow Dry Brush
  • How to get the hair: To get these bouncy curls, I first applied Ghost Prep to slightly damp hair for heat protection. Since I have such uncooperative straight hair, I sprayed a light layer of the Strong Hairspray before and after curling my hair with a ¾ inch iron. I finished the style with the Disco Edition Ghost Dry Oil to add some sparkle and shine!

  • How to get the hair: My hero product to create this look is the Ghost Prep! I have been using this product for almost a year now, and it has saved my hair for all the styling I do to it. It’s great to use while my hair is still damp and before styling, giving me moisturized hair while not weighing my hair down!

After using Ghost Shampoo & Conditioner I finallyI felt that my hair was very soft and shiny! For this look, I straightened my hair and applied Ghost Hairspray to add some volume to the roots. The effect from the Ghost products last me 2 days and my hair looked so shiny and most importantly, healthier than before I tried them!
