Ever wish you could change your hair color for a day just to test out how it looks temporarily? Well, Halloween is a great excuse to try out a new shade! Or you might have already dyed your hair purple and feel like incorporating it into a costume this October. Whether you use temporary hair chalk, permanent dye, or you want to buy a wig for the occasion, we rounded up some TV show and movie characters that really pull off purple hair. There are some pop culture moments in here featuring celebrities with lilac locks that you can channel, too. (Lil’ Kim at the ’99 VMAs, anyone?)
We’ve also rounded up a bunch of other Halloween costume ideas based on hair color, so there’s ones for blondes, brunettes, and red heads. Or since Halloween is on a weekend, you can have various costumes planned wearing a different wig shade for each if you plan on going all out.
Lil’ Kim at the 1999 VMAs
This was a VMA look that will always be remembered. Either DIY your own skin-baring costume or find a replica of the jumpsuit, but just make sure it matches your purple hair.
Kylie Jenner at the 2019 Met Gala
This Met Gala ensemble sparked a ton of memes (especially with Kendall in all orange by her side). A plunging gown, feather boa, and long straight lilac hair will get your costume across.
Nina Barry in UFO
Okay, this one’s a little obscure, but the costumes are so fun! UFO was a show that only lasted for one season in 1970, but if you want a space vibe, the characters in purple wigs totally fit.
