-Glamour meets Goth: how to get that dark and edgy updo hairstyle for Halloween.
At Zac Posen’s fall 2009 show, make-up and hair were inspired by filmmaker Tim Burton’s heroines (think Wynona Ryder in Beetle juice) and hair was described as “Josephine Bonaparte meets punk.”
Put the two together and what do you have? The perfect mix between Goth and glamour – not to mention a fabulous Halloween look!
This diva looking both glamorous and Goth in her Dracula costume got this look with lots of back combing, Bumble and Bumble Classic Hairspray and Hair Powder. This gains the height at the top. French braids on the sides add interest and the back is left straight. Lots of dramatic eye make-up finishes off the package.
-60’s Mod Bun Updo:
This style is full of 60’s retro flair with a bouffant-ish edge. The bun is large and round and offset and sits high on the back of the head. Lots of back combing and smoothing with this style. The sides are slicked back using Bumble and Bumble gellac to get that sleek shiny look, and pulled very tight to the scalp while the bangs are combed forward and are side swept. A hairpiece like this one can be found at any wig store. Use Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder and Classic hairspray to create and finish this look. The eye make-up is dramatic with black and bright blue to match her dress.
