Looking for some last minute Halloween costumes? It’s only a few short days away. For those of you still scrambling to complete your costume, let us help with these 5 easy last minute Halloween costumes and hairstyles. 

Harley Quinn/Joker

Harley Quinn’s character has been all the rage this year. Who doesn’t want to let their inner bad girl out once a year? The great thing about this sassy super villain? She has crazy cool hair that is super fun and surprisingly easy to recreate.

We recommend to check out Missy Sue’s Harley Quinn Halloween Tutorial – it’s spot on! She clips bright blue and red single-clip wefts in to her pigtails to achieve that classic Harley Quinn look, which we believe is a great alternative to spraying temporary hair dye to your natural locks as it can be damaging to your hair and a pain to wash out.

Fun fact: Our Ash Blonde Luxy Hair extensions can be dyed vibrant colors which can be the perfect compliment to any Halloween look. Check out some of our customers who have dyed their Ash Blonde Luxies bright colors here, here, and here.


The classic princess costume – it never fails! It’s the perfect last minute go-to costume because you can likely pull your entire outfit from your existing wardrobe. All you need is an old prom dress, some high heels, and of course, the perfect hairstyle to go with it. Whether you’re interested in being a Disney princess or just looking for an excuse to add flowers to your hair, we’ve got you covered. Check out some of these beautiful hairstyles that we believe will compliment any princess costume.

Tinker Bell

We absolutely adore this cute Tinker Bell look created by Elanna Pecherle because it lets you rock faux bangs for the night, if you didn’t already have them before.

With this costume, you’ll be the centre of attention and have everyone believing in magic by the end of the night.
