How Do I Get This Look?

Bonnie used the VS Sassoon Total Crimp.


Sandra Dee

“Tell me about it Stud!” A classic, sultry party look is Sandra Dee from Grease. Not only is Sandy a complete hottie, it’s a look that you can totally pull together easily with what you have in your wardrobe, perfect for a fancy dress party or Halloween. All you need is a 19mm Curler, hoops, black top and tights and you’ll definitely impress bae.

This look is so good, even Gigi Hadid rocked it for Halloween and we are totally vibing that big hair and red lips gurl.

Celebrity Halloween Looks

We love that celebrities embrace cosplay too! Here’s some favourite Hollywood Halloween looks that are easy to do at home!


1. Day of the Dead

If you’re game to attempt this look by Heather Graham all you need is an oversized 38mm ceramic barrel curler or you can create these waves using the Straight and Curl.  Find your makeup tutorial online, pop on a black dress and flower headband and off you go!

2. Pop Star Style

If you want everyone to pick who you are then dressing as a pop star is your best bet. We’re loving Kourtney Kardashian dressed as Ariana Grande! Simply pull your hair into the highest ponytail you can, pull out the trusty crimper and crimp random sections then pop on your best baby doll dress. Accessorise with a mic of course!

3. Best Halloween Family Look

We loved Resse Witherspoon and her family of spooks! To get Reese’s look simply curl your hair with the Curl Secret Optimum for curls that will last the night, grab your best Mummy Style dress and your black eyeliner and you’re good to go!

4. Barbie for Halloween

We’re loving Kylie Jenner dressed up as Barbie for Halloween! Again big curls can be created using a big barrel curler like the Big Hair Soft Curls. Grab your vintage pink, off-the-shoulder leotard and make yourself a barbie box!
