Minnie Mouse Halloween costume

Minnie Mouse is an iconic Disney character that can be just perfect as a Halloween costume for hairstylists.  Minnie’s very short, black skirt and red polka dot shirt are instantly recognizable. With a bow in your hair that matches your outfit, you’ll look stunning on a working day. Minnie Mouse also wears white gloves, so why not accessorize your costume with some gloves too? It would be so cute to dress up as this beloved character for Halloween this year!

Addams Family Halloween costume

The gothic style of the Addams Family is great for Halloween costumes because it’s not too scary but spooky enough to get you into the spirit. To create your gothic look at home, I recommend three items: a dress in black or purple with lace detailing around the hemline; a pair of black, comfortable salon shoes; and lastly, some sort of hat- either a beret or witch hat if you want to go more traditional. Last but not least, don’t forget to accessorize this look with 2 braided tails.

Geisha Halloween costume

While most people don’t get the opportunity to meet a real geisha in person, it’s a chance for you to dress up as one for Halloween! If you want to wear an authentic geisha costume this year, you’ll need the right makeup and kimono. You can find a geisha kimono on amazon, accessorize it with a french twist or a bun, and Japanese makeup. And there you are, wearing a very original Halloween costume for hairstylists.

Movie character Halloween costume

Don’t you have a clue what you should dress up as this Halloween because it’s just so hard to find that perfect costume? Well, I’ve got you covered with some easy suggestions!

First, think about what are your favorite actors and movie characters. There are many different versions of costumes on Amazon like Catwoman, The money heist, or even the Iron Man suit.

Poker Halloween costume

Here’s a homemade poker Halloween costume idea for hairstylists, perfect for those who want to save some cash. All you need is a few cheap materials and a little creativity.

To start, grab an old t-shirt of yours that won’t be missed if it gets ruined by your Halloween theme. Next, go to the closest office supply store and buy some white paper (or print out an online template) for the headband design of your card. Now take your shirt and lay it flat on the floor, and start painting your shirt. 

If you don’t have the talent to do it your own, you can take your old t-shirt to a print shop and ask them to personalize your poker Halloween costume as you wish.
