And if you really want to stand out from the crowd, you can always take inspiration from your favorite movies and TV shows. After all, who wouldn’t want to rock the iconic hairstyle of their favorite character? As inspiration, here are some of our picks for hottest TV show inspired Halloween hair and costume ideas in 2022!
A Few Things to Know About Wigs
If you’re thinking about wearing a wig, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, make sure you choose a lace front wig for the most natural look. Second, if you want bangs, go for it! Bangs are fabulous and can hide an unnatural hairline on a budget wig. Third, make sure you select a wig made from high-quality synthetic or human hair. And fourth, remember that wigs can be worn year round so consider choosing one you might want to wear again for cosplay, new years eve, or anytime you want to look a bit extra.
To make them look as natural as possible, you’ll also want to be sure to wear a wig cap underneath to keep your own hair from showing.
