Costume Wig Ideas
So we hear that you want to do up your hair in the same style that you've seen on stage and screen. You're hoping that you'll have all your curls in just the right place and expecting that it will stay in style from the start of your scene through to the end. If you're lucky, it'll stand up for your first Halloween party of the night and maintain its beautiful form even as the sunrise starts. (Who wouldn't want to snap a shot for their Instagram, showing their amazing looks right in the glowing light of the dawn?!) Okay, perhaps that's going a little far, but we would all love to look like a movie star, a character from our favorite film, or even one who can manage to bring our superhero comics to life. Wigs could be your answer and save you from all the chemicals and dyes with changing your natural hair!
How to Put on a Wig Cap
To get started with wigs, learning how to properly prep your head will help keep that hairdo in place and make sure that you increase the life of your wig caps! They also help keep the sweat out of your face while protecting your natural hair.
How to Detangle a Costume Wig
If you have worn a wig before you know that they tangle easily and sometimes show up looking like a big pile of hair. We know that it is not fun trying to get that to look natural or like it’s supposed to, but if you check out our How-To video then future tangles won’t be a worry!
How to Straighten a Costume Wig
Straightening a wig is way different from natural hair since it’s made from plastic. You can’t use the same tools that you can use on your natural hair, but if you check out our How-to video then you shouldn’t have any issues straightening your synthetic wig!
Some say that Halloween only comes around once a year. Now, we're not so sure about those horrible rumors...since we live Halloween almost every day! But we do know that planning for the wordexclusive Halloween costume can be a daunting challenge. It’s tough enough to figure out which wordjackets or robes match with which pants or wordshoes...or if either of them are solid choices for which wordwitch you decide upon. But when it comes to topping off your costume with the perfect wig for Halloween, you can feel secure that we’re here to hold your hand. (Or would it be your hair?) Whether you’re trying to become an epic wordsamurai or a wordDisney Princess, you will find the perfect sets of braids so your fingers won't get tied up working your locks on your own! Make this Halloween the ultimate out there so everyone else is impressed enough to snatch their wigs, too!
Men’s Costume Wigs
Men might sometimes feel like there aren't a ton of fashion choices for them. Well, we're happy to say that the same isn't true when it comes to wild hairstyles! You can leap Back to the Future with wigs from your favorite 80s movies one day and show off your stunning Neverland pirate looks the next! Brave kings, epic knights, or debonaire Dudes are all within your grasp thanks to our collection of costume wordwigs for men.
Costume Wigs for Women
There's no limit to the number of looks that the ladies can pull off for Halloween. We've got magical witches, enchanting princesses, dangerous superheroes...and we can't even list the number of movie characters that get us cheering. Fortunately, for every epic character out there, we have a wordWomen’s Wig to match! Be a quirky peasant girl, a witty princess, or the queen of Halloween...or all of them at once if you're a fan of the Princess Bride!
Anime Cosplay Wigs
If you've got a love for anime, you know they've got hairstyles that are clearly augmented by a bit of anime magic. From Sailor Moon's "meatball head" to the Saiyan superpowered hair that defies gravity, it's all pretty impressive! Did they acquire hairspray from another galaxy? Or did they just dive into our drove of Anime Wigs? Well, we wouldn't dare betray their secrets, but you can get your hands on all the iconic wordAnime hairstyles you desire right here!
Kid's Halloween Wigs
Our multimedia team knows how tough it can be to get a kiddo to sit still long enough to finish up their hair and makeup. It’s only slightly harder than getting them to brush their teeth and go to bed on time while simultaneously juggling hair products. Fortunately, our Halloween wigs for kids are here! Your tykes can become sweet little Smurfs, storybook characters...or even let out their inner Sharkboy in a snap, so you have time to focus on taking those great pictures!
Halloween Costumes with Wigs
Perhaps you already have your costume ready. You’ve known for months precisely who you want to become and you might have imagined the look in front of the mirror a time or two! But can you really pull off the complete transformation into a Klingon if you don’t have the brow ridges? Can you truly say that you’re part of the royal court of kings if you aren’t sporting the required Prince Charming locks? Yeah, we didn't think so, either! Fortunately, we have wigs of every color, shade, and style to make your every dream comes true. (Seriously, folks. Wigs are how we teach our kiddos how to recognize their color schemes!) Sit back and picture your ultimate Halloween costume and get ready to run your fingers through the hair of one of our colorful costume wigs!
Pink Wig Costumes
One of the best ways to stand out in a crowd is to have a hair color that’s as bright as possible. Nothing says bright quite like pink, of course. Whether you’re dressing up as a cheerful clown or a sweet-as-candy character, one of our pink wigs are sure to be perfect. Just ask Frenchy from Grease! (We kind of suspect she wishes she would have just gone with a wig, too.)
Blue Wig Costumes
From anime characters and aliens to the most adorable grandmas down the street, a head of blue hair is a surefire way to give your character costume some serious personality. (We hear blue is the new black!) So save the world by striking a heroic pose while your blue wig gleams in the moonlight or give yourself an animated look while fending off dark forces as Coraline!
Red Wig Costumes
A head of red hair is a natural win for anyone. From fiery personalities to quirky characters, there is a reason that we can’t get enough of our ginger friends! Take a ship into the future when Fry goes on an adventure or make it doubly fun when you bring the world’s most beloved redhead along for the fun.

Blonde Wig Costumes
Did you ever want to put that adage to the test? Do blondes really have more fun? We're not sure if there is much of a difference, but we do know that an epic blonde wig can make your night a blast. Take your pick from the truly unique blonde hairstyles out there! From the Goblin King and the Bride to the Blonde Bombshell herself, get ready to paint the town blonde!
Purple Wig Costumes
There's something about a head of purple hair that screams "magic". That seems to track because characters who sport violet locks tend to be from worlds of witchcraft, wizardry, and other supernatural forces. (Maybe that's how their hair took on such a royal hue?) Join the ranks of Raven and the Purple Witch Coven when you don a Purple Wig this Halloween!
Black Wig Costumes
Suppose you were to describe someone mysterious and mighty, someone for whom the shadows seem to obey.... Well, in that case, you're probably talking about an enigmatic individual with gleaming black hair. Don't get us wrong. You don't need black hair to be the ultimate voodoo priestess but it sure would bring the look together! So get your Demon Barber power on with a Black Wig this year!
Green Wig Costumes
What does it mean to have green hair? Well, it's a calming color that means you're one with nature! And it helps that folks have a natural attraction to you. Sounds like green is the way to go, whether you want to be a Teen Titan hero...or a monstrous Medusa, just luring folks to their doom! Either way, we think green is great, just like these Green Wigs!
Grey Wig Costumes
There’s been a trend the last several years about going grey early. Just think of the distinguished look of the professor with that brush of gray in your hair! Obviously, it’s the wisest of all hair colors, so folks are diving into their supplies to make it happen. Well, don’t actually go grey trying to dye your hair.
