Halloween Costumes

It is the week before Halloween and you still don't have a costume? What should you do? There are a few different options. First, you could skip the costume altogether, stay home and make friends with the bowl of leftover Halloween candy, which sounds amazing, save us a piece! Second, you could recycle your old cat costume from last year, meow. Third, you could get a little adventurous and make yourself a new costume. Why not try one of Barefoot Blonde Hair's Halloween costume ideas this year? 

The team at Barefoot Blonde Hair has created a collection of fun Halloween costumes that are easy to replicate. We have included costume details, hair styling instructions and Instagram video tutorials for each costume. Don't stress about your costume, we are here to help you have a memorable and magical Halloween. 

Britney Spears: The first Barefoot Blonde Hair costume is the iconic look from Britney Spear's hit music video "..Baby One More Time." Time to put the entire look together, turn on some classic Britney and let the nostalgia begin. 

Hair Tutorial:

1. Clip in extensions on the sides of your head where you won't see them with a middle part. 

2. Take one side and put it in a pony tail 2 inches above the ear. 

3. Braid the pony tail. 

4. Pull braid apart a little bit to make it look fuller and secure it with an elastic band. 

5. Repeat steps 2-4 on the other side. 

6. Add the fuzz balls to complete Britney's "...Baby One More Time" music video look.

Costume: Now it is time to put together your costume. Once you have collected the pieces for your school uniform with these suggestions, apply a nude lip and tie some pink bows to the end of your braids. To add some detail to your costume, carry your stuff around in a 90s leather backpack instead of a purse and hold some school books. Last, practice your dance moves. Hurry up and put your costume together. The school bell is about to ring and you need to get to class!

Costume :  What is a fortune teller without her crystal ball? In order to create  it, you will  need a plastic round container from your local craft store. Paint the inside of the container half way up in modge podge. Next, dump lots and lots of glitter in the container and shake it, like magic you will have your very own crystal ball. It is time to read your fortune, "a thrilling time is in your immediate future," have a happy Halloween.

Mermaid: When we wear our Barefoot Blonde Hair we often feel like we are mermaids at heart, so why not take it to the next step and be a mermaid for Halloween. Be a mermaid and make waves this Halloween. 

Hair Tutorial: 

1. Use all your smaller wefts for a thicker braid on one side. 

2. Staying close to the hairline, start a dutch fishtail braid. Fitting for a mermaid.

3. Make sure to cross the sections under the braid. 

4. Add sections from both sides keeping them tight as you go. 

5. Add volume by pinching and pulling the braid out. 

6. If you have fine/soft hair, use a texture powder or spray to create hold. 

7. Start a new braid for added dimension. 

8. We chose the "topsy tail" braid since it stays in well and adds major volume.

Costume: Every mermaid princess needs a crown. Grab a crown and some sea shells and follow this tutorial to create the perfect tiara. Add glitter and some pastel and sea blue inspired colors to your makeup look. You and this costume were mer-maid for each other.
