Cute Halloween Ideas: DIY Halloween Wigs & Lashes Costumes

Halloween Wigs — In case you’re looking for easy Halloween costumes, these DIY Halloween wigs and lashes combinations are the perfect cute, last-minute costume ideas!

Every now and then we like to create pretty things just for the sake of creating.

That was definitely our motive with these DIY Halloween wigs and lashes combinations. And I love how they turned out!

I mean, when else do you have a good excuse to get this crazy with your daywear without a trip to the Halloween store?!

I wouldn’t say we really reinvented the toaster oven here or anything. But it was darn good fun and made for some serious Halloween costume inspiration that you can add to our couples costumes and costumes for kids round-ups!

Plus, my inner eight year old is FREAKING OUT about getting to wear a lavender polka dot costume wigs. Can you really blame?

Not to worry. I’ve also included the photo-ops from Jared insisting on dancing in the tinsel wig after our photo shoot, ha!…

Best Halloween Wigs and Lashes

Needles to say, there are about a million places that have a huge selection of Halloween wigs.

You can always pick some up at your local Halloween store or party store, but there are plenty of cute options floating around the web to order from as well. 

My key piece of advice is to pick your favorite outfit and then choose a wig to complete your look after that. This way you have a full ensemble that flows together nicely. 

Here are a few of my favorite places to buy Halloween wigs —

The Dotted Dolly Halloween Wig | Cute Halloween Costume Ideas 

For my Dotted Dolly look, as we like to call it, Rivki did a natural makeup combined with full lashes and a black cat-eye. She also painted colorful dots along my jawline as a play on “contouring”, ha!

We also added a bold pink lipstick and lavender Halloween wig with white stickers that we put all over it.

Pair it with a polka dot shirt or dress, and you’ve got yourself a head to toe polka dot look that’s super cute. You gotta love a quick Halloween costume that’s this fun, right?!

The Mod Miss Striped Halloween Wig | Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas 

We were equal parts inspired by all things retro and all things rainbow for this striped Halloween wig look…

For the Mod Miss, Rivki made Kayla’s eyeshadow the focal point with a color block pattern using face paint, and long, extra full lashes with a white eyeliner bottom lid.

We kept the rest simple and added an extra pop of color by painting a pink stripe down a portion of her wig with a hair chalk pen.

Follow the instructions on the brand of hair chalk pen you’re using. It’s as simple as using a comb to separate a section of the hair, painting it, and then letting it dry so that it doesn’t get on the other sections.

I LOVE the idea of doing a full rainbow wig or rainbow stripe on a plain white wig using colorful hair markers

It would be such a fun pairing to add to this color block eyeshadow, don’t you think?!

The Femme Floral Wig | Cute Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas 

This is definitely not your usual flower crown! It’s a mix between a floral headband and a full-on flower wig, if you ask me!

For Dede’s Floral Femme getup, I actually used real greenery to bobby pin in a loop around her curls, mixed with faux florals instead of a store-bought wig.

To recreate this look, all you have to do is trim a 1.5 ft section of wire greenery with scissors or floral shears to bobby pin in a loop to your natural hair.

Once you have the main piece of greenery in place, you can then pin individual flowers in place one by one until you’re happy with the look.

Rivki kept her makeup girly and whimsical with an emerald green eyeliner, pink shadow, and a single feather lash on the corners of each eye.

For Susan’s tinsel techno Halloween wig, Rivki gave her a smokey cat eye with full faux lashes and made her lips the focal point with silver star confetti and chunky silver glitter applied with lip glue.

Admittedly, the silver sequin lipstick won’t exactly be the easiest thing to eat or drink with at your Halloween party, but at least you’ll look pretty!

How to Store Your Wigs 

One thing to note before you dive into shopping for your Halloween wigs is how to properly store it so that it doesn’t get tangled and matted before your party!

Most Halloween wigs will come in a plastic box, or if you bought a fancier one, a wig box. Be sure to keep the original packaging if you can!

To store your wig, be sure to comb it out thoroughly and fold it in half from ear to ear and place it into a clean plastic bag or back in the wig box.

You can also use stuff tissue paper to form a makeshift ball to help the wig hold it’s shaping while in the bag or box.
