Premier Beauty is serving looks to inspire an entry for this year’s Halloween Hair Contest, which will award our lucky winner with $400 to spend at Premier Beauty.
There's something about fall that really starts to get people excited for the last couple months of the year It could be the changing colors of the leaves or the extra crispness of the air. It could be the cozy sweaters or the fleece-lined boots that pull out of our closets to keep us warm. Or, it could be, in our opinion, the best holiday that comes around only once a year (and no, we’re not talking about Christmas): Halloween!
Halloween brings out a side in the beauty community that cannot compare to any other part of the year. The creativity in hair, makeup, and costumes blow our mind every spooky season, and we always know that when the holiday comes around, we are in for a great treat (no pun intended). With endless ideas for inspiration coming from television characters (every movie featured during Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween
), spooky decorations (have you seen Target’s lineup
this year?), and even favorite foods (obviously Starbucks' PSL
), beauty professionals truly take anything and everything when looking for the perfect transformation to make on this scary holiday.
While you may already have some ideas in mind for yourself or your clients this All Hallows Eve, the Premier Beauty Team wanted to give you some extra Halloween hair inspo by showcasing some of the talented hairstylists that submitted looks to our First Annual Halloween Hair Contest last year.
Traditional Día de los MuertosInspired specifically by the Day of the Dead, Hairstylist Kayla Christine located in Dayton, Ohio, turned up the volume when it came to creativity. Using clip-in hair extensions, she dyed the hair with Alfaparf rEvolution Neon Colors to create a flower-like effect, while giving the hair extra contrast. To style and keep the hair in place, she used Alfaparf’s Style Stories Hairspray, Wax Spray, and Fiber Paste. Finishing this look off with a skeletal makeup design, the Premier team’s bones are definitely shaking by how gorgeous this look turned out.
Out of this World, AlienClearly, not all aliens have to be scary. Stylists Heather Foster and Mariam Jabre from Bombshell Salon in Birmingham, Michigan, slayed at creating this fun adaptation of a modern-day, glam E.T. They created this look by first dying 18-inch tape-in Hotheads Hair Extensions with Keune Haircosmetics hair color to create a gorgeous contrast of pinks and purples. After, they styled the hair with Keune’s Brilliantine Gel and Spray Wax and then finished the look off with KEVIN.MURPHY’S SESSION.SPRAY.
Keeping Up with CoralineThere’s a reason they call it ~spooky season~. Hairstylist Molly Quakenbush from Versed Salon in Plainfield, Illinois, created this Coraline-esque look that is truly making us feel like we’re stuck in a horror film. She started off this look by coloring her model’s natural hair with COLOR.ME by KEVIN.MURPHY and then blow-drying and styling it with the following KEVIN.MURPHY hair products: BODY.BUILDER, ANTI-GRAVITY.LOTION, LEAVE-IN.REPAIR, YOUNG.AGAIN, DOO.OVER, and POWDER.PUFF. Then, pops of color were added throughout the hair with 14- to 16-inch Hotheads Hair Extensions colored with Alfaparf Milano’s rEvolution Neon colors. Putting everything together with simply terrifying face makeup, this entry to our 2019 Halloween Hair Contest will continue to give us goosebumps for years.
Majestic & MagicalBecause who doesn’t love dressing up as everyone’s favorite mystical creature? Hairstylist and Salon Owner of The Gloss Salon in Cincinnati, Ohio, Melanie Scheel, created this gorgeous baby pink unicorn look using KEVIN.MURPHY hair products. Topping it off with a hefty sprinkle of glitter and full glam makeup, it’s like we are looking straight into a fairytale when we see this magical look.
