Halloween can be hell on your poor hair. From itchy, sweaty wigs, to sticky temporary color, your locks can take a licking before the night is over. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just style your natural hair and not have to fret about totally transforming your tresses?
Well, all you have to do is actually choose a costume which requires your hair color, silly goose!
Here are some particular costume options which are specifically geared toward those of you out there with a brunette mane. So don’t worry about bleaching your hair this year, or purchasing that pricey wig — just go au natural, girl!
1. Audrey Horne
This Twin Peaks vixen has great, retro-inspired fashion pieces that you’ll definitely want to wear once Halloween is over.
Not only is this costume simple and effortless for those brunettes with bobs, but you can pretend to lose your glasses and become incapacitated to avoid doing stuff you don’t wanna do.
3. Olivia Pope
Become an expert at crisis-management with these sharply-tailored outfit choices that also work perfectly as post-Halloween business wear.
4. Morticia Addams
All you need is a middle part, some purple eye shadow, a red lip, and a killer black lace dress to transform into this ravishing beauty.
5. Carmen Sandiego
This costume is so easy, it’s preposterous. Just get a matching red raincoat and wide-brimmed hat, then tie a yellow ribbon around it. The only hard part of this costume is finding where in the world you are (HA! Get it??).
6. Lydia Deetz
This gothic fashion plate is a perfectly witchy option for Halloween. Crucial feature: make sure you don’t forget to gel your bangs into little points.
7. Katniss Everdeen
Not only has Katniss become something of a brunette icon in recent years, thanks to Jennifer Lawrence, her outfit makes for a ridiculous comfortable costume. So, if you end up walking long distances on Halloween night, you’re all set!
8. Wonder Woman
Who could forget or leave out such a classic brunette boss bitch? The best part about this costume is that it’s so iconic, nobody’s going to be asking you who you’re dressed up as — unless they’re a total dingus.
9. Sailor Mars
Yay, Sailor Mars! She’s rocking that long brunette hair and those candy red heels, too. Bonus: this outfit will work well for any future cosplaying you may want to do.
10. Betty Boop
For those with shorter locks, the Betty Boop look simply can’t be discounted. Just grab a little red dress with some polkadot accessories, and you’ll be good to go.
If you’re a Daria fan, there’s a decent chance you want a costume that doesn’t look like you tried too hard. Fortunately, the Daria costume choice accomplishes just that.

13. Bettie Page
Okay, I know: some of you have been waiting this entire post, thinking “Yes, but what if I want a TRULY scandalous Halloween costume?” Well, you can always recreate the pinup icon Bettie Page — just pair some classy lingerie with heels, a string of pearls, and some chunky bangs. But be forewarned: you may get a tad chilly.
