11 Easy Halloween Costume Hairstyles

I absolutely love the fall season, and the holidays that come with it. Halloween is one of our family’s favorites, but having six children can make it really tough on me. We literally have to come up with six creative, cutesy, unique, and cost-effective Halloween costumes every year… and do it with a smile!

Halloween costumes can become quite expensive, especially with six kids. Have you ever found out that your child lost the teacher’s note and that the school Halloween party is just days away? Yep, it has happened to me — and I had to run around in a mad scramble to find any costume that would work!

I believe that nothing spurs creativity quite as much as necessity, so I have become really good at creating a darling Halloween costume using just a few household items and easy-to-find things from the store. Many of these costume ideas are centered around what I can create with my daughter’s hair. If I can make her hairstyle fit a character, then I pretty much have an insta-costume! Filling out the rest of the Halloween costume is fairly easy.

So, for all of you overworked mothers out there… I am giving you my list of eleven easy Halloween costume hairstyles, including links to step-by-step instructions and video tutorials on how to create each of them. Maybe this list will help to make your Halloween just a little less…bwahahaha… INSANE!

    Maybe your daughter is less of the Prim type, and a bit stronger personality? Then the Katniss braid was made for her. This look is best on the older teen, since that is where it originated. The braid is also simple to costume around. You can find exactly what you need just hidden away in your closet.
