When celebrating Halloween, dressing up in a costume is important. However in dressing up, it is important to complete the whole look from the hairstyle, headdress, makeup, costume, and props. This might seem a lot for a Halloween party but Halloween is actually the second biggest commercial holiday next to Christmas so decorating and dressing up for this season is as important as celebrating the upcoming Christmas season!
For the hairstyle, there are some options to choose from such as the wig, hair extension, temporary hair color, and hair arrangement.
Different Kinds of Wig

If you are planning to purchase a wig, there are various kinds of wigs to choose from in the market such as standard cap, monofilament wig, capless wig, human hair wig, synthetic wig, lace wig, and vacuum wig.

Standard or wefted cap is the most basic type of wig. This is the cheapest kind of wig since this is made with a sewing machine that sews each row of hair weft until it becomes a cap and can be easily wearable.

Monofilament wig is a cap made from polyester or nylon mash. This kind of cap looks like skin and the strands of hair are individually hand tied into a mash.
Photo by: Capless
Capless wig is lighter and has lace strips instead of a cap. At the same time, the scalp can breathe more since it is not a cap. It will feel less hotter since the whole head is not covered compared to the other wigs.

Human hair wig is the most natural looking big and is the most expensive of all. This can actually be dyed, cut, and styled just like a real hair. The only downside of this is that this should be taken cared of properly wherein it has to be shampooed, dried, and conditioned just like a human’s hair.

Synthetic wig is made from synthetic materials and is also cheaper compared to other kinds of wig. This kind of wig cannot be styled because it is sensitive to heat and will break. On the other hand, this is the easiest kind of wig that can be found in the Philippines.

Lace wig is a full wig with lace at the front part, which will help the hair look more natural. At the same time, it is more comfortable due to the mesh in the front part of the wig.

Vacuum wig is a kind of wig that is custom made for an individual. In order to create this, the size and the shape of the head will be measured with a use of a mould that will make it perfectly fit the individual. This is great for those looking for wigs that will perfecty fit their head and feel more comfortable with it.

Hair extension has also various kinds and each type of hair extension will depend on your budget, preference, and hair type. Some of the other factors include the quality of the hair if it is synthetic or real and the length of the hair you prefer.
Hair professionals usually prefer the real type of hair extension because it can be styled with the use of blow dryers, flat iron, and curling iron. This can last for six to twelve months but it is more expensive compared to the synthetic hair extension. On the other hand, synthetic hair is usually coated with silicone in order to give the natural glossiness of the hair but this also fades after how many uses. This will only last for one to three months and it cannot be dyed and be styled with a use of a flat iron or a curling iron because it will break.
Types of Hair Extension
1. Micro Link Hair Extension

Micro link hair extension or also known as micro bead and loop hair extension is applied by looping the hair extensions to the natural hair, clamping it with the use of pliers, and locking it with a metal bead.
2. Weave Hair Extension

Weave hair extension is applied wherein the natural hair will be braided and the hair extensions will be attached with the use of a needle and a thread of cotton. This type of hair extension will suit all kinds of hair but it will suit those with thick hair the most. This will not suit those with thin hair if the hair extension is applied too tight and it can also feel too heavy for the scalp.
3. Tape Hair Extension

The tape hair extension is the quickest and easiest to attach to the natural hair and this is actually one of the most popular to purchase in the Philippines. The hair extension will be taped and then sandwiched on either side of your hair. This can last up to six to twelve weeks and, at the same time, this is very easy to maintain compared to other hair extensions but it will be hard to tie your hair up because there will be a tendency that the clips may get removed.
4. Pre-Bonded or Fusion Hair Extension

Pre-bonded or fusion hair extension is the most popular among all types of hair extension but this can also be the most damaging due to its’ application. The hair extension is bonded to the natural hair with the use of glue and keratin. The application takes at least four hours or more and this hair extension can last up to six months.

Temporary Hair Color
If wigs and hair extensions will be a hassle for you, another option to try in the market is temporary hair color.
1. Hair Mascara
Hair Mascara is colored mascara that is made to add color highlights to the hair. If you are thinking of coloring the whole head, this may not work. This will only work properly for a few sections that will work as a highlight. Apply the wand directly to the hair and keep on layering it in order to intensify the color. The color will last on your hair up to one to two shampoos.

2. Hair Chalk

Hair Chalk is very easy to use and also very easy to wash off. You can add any color to your hair by simply washing your hair without product, then wet the hair section you wish to color, then smooth out the hair chalk to your hair, then seal it off with a hairspray.

3. Colored Hairspray

Colored hairspray would be also very easy to use since you would just need to spray this onto the hair section that you want to be colored. This can be removed after two to four shampoos although you may need more than a bottle of colored hairspray depending on your hair length.

4. Semi-Permanent Hair Dye
Bleaching the hair will give the perfect semi-permanent hair dye that can give the perfect shade of color that you want. You can make your hair color light, dark, or vibrant with the help of bleach.
Bleaching removes the color of your hair through the process of oxidation. Oxidation decolourised the pigment of the hair which will make the hair color yellow or sometimes almost white. The most commonly used bleaching agents are hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. According to Philip Kingsley Salon, “It’s potentially the most damaging coloring method because the agent fully penetrates the hairs’ outer cuticle. When it comes to having hydrogen peroxide and ammonia that close to your cuticles, it seems wise to let a professional do the job.”
In order to take care of bleached hair, it is important to use the correct shampoo. It would be appropriate to alternately use a protein-rich formula shampoo and a moisture-rich formula shampoo but both has to be sulfate-free in order to avoid drying out the hair.
