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.

Up Level Halloween with Temporary Hair Color

Up Level Halloween with Temporary Hair Color

It’s almost the end of October and that means one thing: Halloween! I have always loved Halloween, but even more so since becoming a master hair colorist. You see, as a master hair colorist, I love creating and witnessing transformations which Halloween is all about. My heart skips a few beats when someone wholeheartedly commits to this night of make-believe and mayhem by going all out with their costume, not overlooking a single detail. Of course, “not overlooking a single detail,” means you need your hair color to come into the mix as well. You can’t be on point about your costume and makeup, but completely overlook the most important factor in how you look: your hair. Nasty wigs don’t cut it these days because they destroy the integrity of the costume (as you have probably gathered, I take Halloween pretty seriously). I know that it’s hard to commit to a hair color 180 for just one night. I mean, being a flamingo for Halloween is great, but you don’t want to be one the other 364 days of the year. This year, I have a beautiful solution for you: Temporary Hair Color. A completely safe alternative that disappears after you 5-15 washes. I highly recommend it for those of you who truly want to play this Halloween. Below I’ve listed three things that make Temporary Hair Color awesome: Its temporary!!! Forgive me for being obvious, but I just don’t see a bigger benefit. Temporary Hair Color opens up a whole new world because the number of costumes you can truly pull off expands x 100! You want to be Katy Perry for Halloween? Well, nothing says Katy Perry more than hair color so bright it rivals My Little Pony. Think you’d make a perfect Wednesday Addams? Wednesday isn’t Wednesday without hair color that is darker black than the darkest night. Keeping it low key and just going as a cat or lion? Up-level that costume by making your hair color the same as the animals main! I can go on, but I think you get the point. (My stunning model, @vividvivka, from a recent shoot) Temporary Hair Color will not effect the hair color beneath it. I would never make a recommendation that would damage the health of your hair and dull your hair color. Temporary hair color live outside the cuticular layer of your hair and last about 5-15 washes. (A look you may recognize if you follow me on Instagram – if you don’t you should start, @reneetaglia – how cool would this be for Halloween night?!) This isn’t just for Halloween, Temporary Hair Color is wonderful for those of you who have been dying to try out...
