11 Spot-On Halloween Costumes Perfect For Curly Hair

Amanda Pena

If you have curly hair, you know the struggle of trying to find a Halloween costume that embraces your hair’s personality, rather than hides it. We usually have to slick it back, straighten it, or shove it under a wig when Oct. 31 rolls around each year. But, instead of denying your hair’s natural texture, why not make it the main feature of your costume?

We’ve rounded up some of the easiest and most clever costume ideas for those who want to show off their beautiful, textured tresses. Check out 11 Halloween costumes that perfectly complement your curly hair, and don’t forget to sign up for our Full Carts, Can’t Lose email to stay on top of the best sales each week.

While you don't have to go full-blown, opening-credits Carrie Bradshaw in the pink tulle skirt and white tank (after all, it's October), Carrie's iconic style is perfect for curly haired ladies. If pink tulle isn't your thing, try her infamous baseball game look with this inexpensive faux fur jacket and a slinky black dress.

2 Issa Rae from 'Insecure'

While you might see a lot of Issa's looks this Halloween, it will be nearly impossible to find someone with the exact same look since her style is pretty eclectic. Her casual go-to consisting of a mismatched jacket, graphic tee, and high-waisted jeans will give you on-trend looks you can wear beyond the holiday, too.
