Without a doubt, the costume that’s going to be everywhere this Halloween is ‘Suicide Squad’s’ Harley Quinn. But if the rainbow hair and dramatic makeup have you completely stumped on how to pull it off, we’re here to help. Ahead, get expert tips on recreating Harley Quinn’s look for Halloween.
Whether you’re a comic book fan or a beauty buff, channeling Margot Robbie‘s Suicide Squad character, Harley Quinn, is the perfect Halloween costume. Once you’ve got your costume set, master Harley’s signature beauty look with ease thanks to tips from the pros.
For Harley’s platinum blonde pigtails with bold ombré color, Joico’s Celebrity Stylist Paul Norton shared the fuss-free way to get the look. First things first, if you don’t have pale to medium-dark blonde hair, you’re going to want to invest in a wig.
To get the style, Paul says to create a center part in your hair and use a texturizing spray like Joico Hair Shake Finishing Texturizer Spray, $17.99, through your hair for volume and a matte finish. Next, gather each side into a high ponytail for the pigtails and secure one with a red elastic and the other with a blue elastic.
For Harley’s ombré color, Paul recommends using the Joico InstaTint Temporary Shimmer Spray, $7.50, in Sapphire Blue on one side and Orchid on the other. The temporary color won’t damage your hair and will wash right out, and if you spray on too much, Paul says you can run a paddle brush through your hair to soften the color.
To finish the look with the perfect makeup, check out one of the many YouTube tutorials, like this one, which will walk you through the look, step-by-step. Regardless of the tutorial, you’re going to need white face makeup, pink and blue eyeshadow, black eyeliner and a classic red lip.
