21 Ways to Wear a Wig This Halloween

Some people find costume wigs to be too itchy, difficult to keep on straight, or hot. But hear us out, because when it comes to Halloween, there’s no better way to nail your costume’s accuracy — and to have some fun — than by wearing faux hair.

For those who have struggled with wigs in the past, the most common problems can easily be avoided by knowing the proper way to choose and wear this costume accessory. It’s often worth it to pay a bit more for higher-quality hair — the cheapest ones are often made of synthetic materials that will be hard to work with, especially if you’re hoping to customize the style. To avoid your real strands spilling out, pin it back and use a wig cap. And if you’re worried about your new mane staying put throughout the night, you can always use a headband to secure it in place.

If you still need some convincing (or just some inspiration), we’ve put together our favorite Halloween costumes including these head toppers. Whether you’re feeling villainous like Cruella de Vil or spunky like Black Widow, these ideas will make you want to try out a new hairstyle — even if it’s just for one night.
