Glitter Roots for Halloween!

Glitter Roots for Halloween!

Halloween is right around the corner and, if you’re anything like me, you are scrambling to put together you last-minute (yet totally fabulous) costume. I’ve discovered the element that can bring your Halloween costume together perfectly- glitter roots. Glitter roots was an instant hit when photos started perking up on Instagram last December and it quickly became one of my favorite trends of last year. So when I started thinking about Halloween costumes this year, I realized that anything could be achieved if the correct glitter root is in place. Below are three different Halloween costumes you can create incorporating glitter roots. Cleopatra: Nothing better than choosing a queen/world-class seductress as your alter ego for the night. The Queen of the Nile is surprisingly easy to recreate. First things first, this requires hair parted down the middle with gold glitter roots through the center part. I recommend keeping your hair stick-straight and adding jewels to the tips to make it look authentic. As for the outfit, I would go with a gold bodysuit (like this one). Throw on a few pieces of gold jewelry and emulate her makeup and, voila, you are good to go. Cruella de Vil: One of my absolute favorite Disney villains because of her eccentric hair, Cruella requires a silvery-white glitter root parted to the side (best if you have dark hair). Add to it some long red gloves, a faux-fur coat, and a little black dress . Unicorn: This little piece of magic is always a really fun costume to put together because of how creative you can get with it. I would recommend adding a touch of temporary color with the glitter root of your choice (I love this one, for example). Make sure to use shimmer and glitter around your eyes and in your makeup as well (my favorite shimmer stick is Watts Up by Benefit, followed by High Beam also by Benefit) and a pop of color on the lips. You can also get creative with your outfit by incorporating color or sticking to silver and white.

Master Hair Colorists Picks for Best Halloween Looks (Celebrity Edition)

Master Hair Colorists Picks for Best Halloween Looks (Celebrity Edition)

As a Master Hair Colorist, I am pretty much obsessed with Halloween (any excuse for dressing up and I am all about it). That being said, my next few posts are going to be extremely Halloween-centric. As I try to find inspiration for my own costume, I keep looking through tons of pictures of celebrities costumes from past Halloween’s. Every year, we see our favorite TV, film, and music stars put together some pretty interesting Halloween looks. As I mentioned in my last post, I believe that the best Halloween costumes come from fully committing to the look – this includes costume, makeup, and the HAIR! Of course, as a Master Hair Colorist,  my prerequisite for an amazing Halloween look is how well the hair color and style coordinate with the costume. You’d be surprised how much I am completely unimpressed by the effort people put into having the hair color and hair style be on point for the costumes. There are times, however, when I find a person who has truly done a spectacular job with their hair color and hair style. So, without further ado, I bring you my Top Three Halloween Looks (Celebrity Edition)! Iggy Azaelea knocked it out of the park as one of our all-time favorite Disney villains, Cruella De Vil. Not only did she pull this off to perfection, but she also modernized Cruella’s wardrobe and truly committed to Cruella’s signature black and white hair color and hair style. Perfectly coiffed and with a dalmatian to boot- I can’t really ask for more. Heidi Klum is the queen of Halloween looks! Each year, she throws an elaborate Halloween party where she truly is costumed to perfection. Cleopatra may be a typical Halloween costume, but nobody does its quite like Heidi. She even bedazzled her face to embody how much of an absolute goddess and myth Cleopatra has become in modern day. I have never seen anyone do Cleopatra quite like this! I really tried to find another person for the third spot, but once again I have to give to Heidi Klum (or should I say Betty Boop?) I love that instead of opting for a plain, black bob, she actually created a awesome hair color and hair style for her version of Betty Boop. I think even Betty Boop would approve. I can’t wait to see what Heidi has up her sleeve this year! What are your favorite Halloween looks? Let me know in the comments below. Renee Taglia is located in a Beverly Hills California.
