5 Ways To Create A Halloween Costume Just From A Hairstyle

If you're lazy like me, these hairstyles will pull together a costume so quickly and cheaply!

Three fortune teller costume looks side by side

With Halloween arriving in just a week, now's the time to think of your costume if you haven't already. I usually leave this until the last minute, relying on random pieces of my wardrobe and old Halloween costume accessories to pull a look together. But what if all you really needed to tie your costume together was a hairstyle? Could it be that easy? I, for one, definitely think these costumes work and I am sure to use one of them this year.

Ariana Grande


Ariana Grande has so many iconic looks that you could go back to her Victorious days of deep red hair, to her signature half-up half-down from 2013, or to her cat ear plus ponytail phase.


All you need to transform into Ariel is some temporary red hair color like Curlsmith's hair makeup! Add any purple top and/or green skirt, and your costume's done! You can do this with princesses like Jasmine, Cinderella, or Aurora, who all have signature hairstyles!



Use your naturally curly texture or curl your hair into tight spirals! Then tease it until you create a lion's mane. Add some makeup to finish off the look!



Have some fun with temporary hair color to create this galaxy roots look! Pair it with an all black ensemble, and you'll look like the night sky without much effort!

Minnie Mouse


And finally, you can create ears by braiding your own hair and twisting it into mini buns! Add a red lip and use eyeliner to draw Minnie's nose to complete the costume!

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
