Who doesn’t love a good old classic for Halloween? Morticia Addams is the ultimate Halloween icon when talking about cinema. If you’re feeling like going full-on goth this year, make sure you prepare your long, black tresses. Need more length? Morticia’s mane is infamously long and sleek, and you too can achieve this look by adding a set of clip-in human hair extensions in shade jet black.

Nobody said that scary has to be dressed in black or wearing a hockey mask, Friday the 13th style. Sometimes the most terrifying evil is a spoiled high school queen bee whose mission is to ultimately ruin your life. Grab your burn book and channel your inner plastic with a couple of friends. The iconic, sleek, blonde, straight Y2K hairstyle of Regina George is only one click away - check out our Barbie Blonde hair extensions range!
4. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: The Riverdale Girls

And if you love a big curly blowout, then you will want to recreate Bee’s hairstyle from The Babysitter! Get your set of Remy hair extensions and check out our blog on how to curl hair extensions to get the most out of your Halloween costume.
6. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Luna Lovegood

Check in with your friends to recreate the ultimate Harry Potter group costume - and make sure you secure a set of Ice Blonde real hair extensions to get Luna’s long tresses. Someone has to find out if this house party is infested by nargles, no?
7. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Hermione Granger
If you’re a true Harry Potter nerd, then perhaps you’re keener on recreating Hermione’s curls for this year’s Halloween celebration. Gryffindor scarf? Check. Magic wand? Check. Hair extensions to recreate Emma Watson’s voluptuous and textured blowout? Errr… Almost. Come check out our range of red hair extensions to show this party what a mudblood is capable of.
8. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman’s jet black hair is almost as iconic as her lazo (or her cheesy outfit). Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman gives things a kick with a luscious blowout, without missing out on the metal tiara. If you’d like your costume to scream “GIRL POWER” this is the halloween costume idea you have to try. You’ll feel absolutely incredible, guaranteed. But what about a superhero’s hairstyle? Ultra volume clip-in hair extensions make the thickest blowout. Try before you deny!
9. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Wednesday Addams
Maybe Morticia is not your jam, but what about her creepily adorable daughter Wednesday? As Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday is already the talk of the town (the show is coming out in November on Netflix), you’re still on time to show the world your version of the young Addams girl. The original Wednesday wears her hair in two extra long plaits and a middle part - an easy look that you can recreate with the addition of clip-in hair extensions, but Ortega’s look features a set of dark curtain bangs too. Want to give it a go? Then grab a pair of clip-in bangs to make the most of your Halloween costume without committing to your scissors.
10. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Arwen Undomiel
Are you a fan of the fantasy world more than horror movies and comic books? Then you’ll love to buy pointy latex ears and go as Arwen, Aragorn’s love interest and one of the most iconic characters living in Middle Earth. If you have a man to dress up as Viggo Mortensen, then you know you’ve already bagged that “best costume prize”. All elves of Lorien and Rivendell have incredibly long and healthy tresses - the perks of being a nearly immortal being, I guess - but if you haven’t exactly being following the Valar hair care routine then you can always get a set of clip-in hair extensions to recreate this look.
11. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Daenerys Targaryen
Is your fantasy style more badass than ethereal? Then Daenerys Targaryen - the Mother of Dragons - from the Game of Thrones franchise is the perfect Halloween costume for you. Not only you will have a range of embarrassingly cool outfits to choose from, but you will also have lots of very cool (and intricate) hairstyles to play around with. The infamously light tresses of a Targaryen make the perfect braided do.
12. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Cersei Lannister
Is a Targaryen’s blonde too much? Then go Lannister gold - you won’t regret it. Cersei might not have been the best queen in Westeros - and the incestuous affair surely made it even grosser than it needed to be, but one thing is guaranteed: she knew how to slay a braided updo. The Lannisters were famous for their golden, sandy blonde hair - reminiscent of the mane of a lion, which also happens to be the family’s banner. Check out our range of blonde hair extensions to find your perfect match.
13. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Rhaenyra Targaryen
You thought I forgot about the latest Targaryen that everyone is rooting for? Absolutely not. Princess Rhaenyra’s iconic hairdos have already been the talk of the town - so much that HBO’s official TikTok account has also released a couple of interesting tutorials. If you’re feeling brave, go full Targaryen with Ice Blonde hair extensions and lots, lots of patience to recreate the ultimate Iron Throne-worthy braided updo. Want to know more?

14. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Claire Redfield
Are you the gamer type? Then you’ll love taking inspiration from the iconic horror video game series, Resident Evil.

Claire Redfield and her ponytail fight biological warfare all-year-round, but you can borrow one of her outfits for one night. Recreate this simple hairstyle with a clip-in ponytail hair extension in size mini!
15. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Lara Croft
This badass archaeologist’s hairstyle has probably made history as the most famous braid ever. Angelina Jolie’s version wants her outfit to be total black with a French plait on the back of her head and two tendrils left out, falling free on the side of her face. Whether you’d like to go full Angie or stay loyal to one of the multiple versions that appeared in the video game series throughout the years, rest assured Lara Croft will be the life of the party. Need some help to get that tomb raider-approved long braid? Then grab a set of clip-in hair extensions to incorporate into your mane.
16. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Chun-Li
Chun-Li is probably one of the most famous video game characters ever - so much that Nicki Minaj wrote a song after her, and various celebrities such as Japanese singer Kyary Pamyu-Pamyu, Korean MMA fighter Jenny Huang, and Russian bodybuilder Julia Vins also enjoyed dressing up as her. Arctic Monkeys also included a piece called “Chun-Li Flying Bird Kick” in one of their albums. But why is Chun-Li so popular? Well, not only she’s a total badass, but her looks have become such a sensation that 90s Chinese fashion was influenced by her as well. What's the First Lady Of Fighting Games' go-to hairstyle? A set of iconic space buns, of course.
17. Halloween Hairstyle Ideas: Kitana
There’s no way you can mention fighting games without talking about Mortal Kombat! Its viral theme song, the incredible character design and its infamously bloody graphics have made history throughout the 90s and early 00s. This video game was a nightmare for parents, probably second only to GTA San Andreas - and it’s easy to see why. Kitana is one of the best female characters, and her iconic black tresses can be arranged in a series of hairstyles seen throughout the series: braided updos, a sleek bun, or a gently waved blowout. Recreate her looks with the aid of natural black hair extensions.
