Spooky season is officially here and we could not be more excited! While our calendars are jam-packed with fall activities like apple picking and leaf-peeping, if we’re honest we only have on thing on the brain: Halloween. Or more specifically...Halloween hair.

The 14 Most Unbelievable Halloween Hair Transformations

Sea Witch

All you need are a few strategically placed accessories to take your mermaid-inspired hair color from summer to fall. Add the Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo and Conditioner system to your routine to ensure your ocean-inspired strands don’t fade before you snag first place in the costume contest. 

Carved Pumpkin

Why carve a jack-o’-lantern, when you can be one? This flawless Halloween ‘do is all about the vivid color. It’s no secret that red and orange shades are notoriously hard to maintain. To help keep your color in tip-top shape, swap out your regular shampoo and conditioner system for one that’s formulated for color-treated hair like Redken Color Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner


You don’t have to go spooky to get in the Halloween spirit. If you’re looking for a sweeter way to celebrate the holiday, consider this strawberry top knot. 

Creepie Creecher

Creepie Creecher may be a goth icon, but we love her technicolor hair. Add the Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Lamination Spray to your hair care routine to ensure your half and half hair lasts way past Hallows Eve. 

Mac Attack

This one-of-a-kind costume is perfectly paired with mac and cheese-inspired yellow hair. Ensure your cheese-inspired strands stay brass-free by swapping out your regular shampoo and conditioner with the Redken Color Extend Blondage Shampoo and Conditioner system. 

Cruella De Vil With A Twist

Take Cruella De Vil’s signature dalmatian-inspired ‘do to the next level with this secret rainbow dye job. On the surface, De Vil is up to her usual tricks, but underneath her frightening facade, she’s all party! 


Sally is nothing without her long, bright red hair. Make an appointment with your colorist for a gloss service (we’re big fans of Redken Shades EQ) one week before your Halloween party to make sure your red strands are as vibrant and shiny as can be. 

Cookie Monster

If all of the Halloween candy isn’t enough for your sweet tooth, channel your inner Cookie Monster with this simple hairstyle. 


If you’re looking for a bright and daring look for Halloween, look no further than this breathtaking unicorn ‘do. 

Sheriff Woody

You’ve got a friend in whatever talented colorist you find that can create this scary-good Sheriff Woody-inspired dye job. 

Skeleton Hands

You don’t have to go over-the-top to embrace the spooky spirit. These creepy skeleton hand hair clips are a great way to keep your strands out of your face while you scarf down all of your Halloween candy. 


There’s nothing worse than having a bat stuck in your hair (trust us, you don’t want to know)— that is, unless it’s a cute bat hair clip. Secure your Hallows’ Eve style with a creepy bat clip to get in the trick-or-treat spirit. 


With hair this sweet, you won’t even need a costume!


If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get into the Halloween spirit, this pumpkin top knot should do the trick...or treat!
