Halloween is almost here, and you might be scrambling for a clever costume right now. While there’s no reason that your hair type has to dictate the type of costume you wear, it can be much easier to dress up as someone with your own curly hair type. Moreover, it can feel empowering to rock your curls on the most special night of the year (Halloween is the most special night of the year, right?)

You might think that, as a curly-haired girl, you’re limited to certain classic curly costumes. Nothing wrong with the old lioness or Diana Ross idea, but if you’re looking for something a bit more original, we’ve got you covered.
