7 Halloween Costumes Inspired By Celebrity Blondes

Remember that time you DIY bleached your hair into oblivion after you convinced yourself you could totally pull off Britney Spears’ babylights circa “Oops!…I Did It Again?” Your mom still talks about what a mess that was at every family dinner. Luckily, if you’ve still got a hankering to go platinum, you have an opportunity to go blonde (for a night) every time Halloween rolls around.

All you need is a wig from your local beauty supply store, or the ever-faithful Amazon, to tackle the iconic Britney Spears costume without the trauma of growing out your over-processed hair. And if your hair has been blonde and Britney-esque since birth, you’re going to save a ton of money on your “Toxic” flight attendant costume this year.

As a blonde (natural or otherwise), there are a few different costumes you can pull off. You could take on Carrie Bradshaw’s corkscrew curls from Sex and the City or copy Kim Kardashian’s single-process, white platinum hair down to her butt.

Ahead, are seven costumes perfect for living out your blonde ambitions.

Carrie Bradshaw From Sex And The City

Got bouncy curls? How about three costume-less friends? If both answers are yes, you could go as the SATC gang, with you playing the lead role of SJP.

Hailey Baldwin

If you’re a Belieber, you’ve probably considered the Hailey Baldwin Justin Bieber couple costume for this Halloween. If you’re going through with it, grab some styling gel or a goopy pomade (maybe from your JB counterpart), and slick your blonde bob back like a model.

Britney Spears

Name a more iconic blonde than early 2000s Britney circa “Oops!… I Did It Again.” You can’t! This costume will give you the perfect excuse to dig up your belly-button ring and scrunchies from high school.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki wears a wig, which means to get her look all you need is a quality hairpiece. We’re partial to the platinum, but the opportunities are endless as she’s gone green, rainbow, and even hot pink.

There’s no way to mention blonde Halloween costumes without Twiggy. Grab your mascara and coat those bottom lashes (or find a strip of falsies), and rock that blonde pixie like you’re dancing through the disco era.

Dressing as Beyoncé takes gumption — she’s the queen, after all — but if you’re up for it, there are plenty of blonde Bey options. You can do an asymmetrical bob, long waves, or honey box braids.

Kim Kardashian West

With a long platinum wig, you could also play a very convincing Kim Kardashian. And if the black latex dress is not going to happen, you could just wear sweats and go as a Yeezy clone.
