Celebrity stylist and entrepreneur Sarah Potempa loves a good hair challenge — first she did 100 days of hairstyles, then she created eight stunning bridal looks for us, and we can't stop obsessing over her current 365 days of braids on Instagram. So we gave her a fresh test: we asked her to create a week's worth of Halloween costumes all centered on updos. She accepted our challenge and even provided the steps so you can DIY the looks at home.

"With a little creativity, any costume can be focused around hair!" she said of using your mane to create a cool character. "Take the main focus of your inspiration and incorporate it to fit your hairstyle. Using something as simple as wire can mold hair into any shape you want. Hair-focused Halloween looks can make any simple costume into something bold and original."

See just how elevated a well-placed braid or accessory can take your style in the dreamy, creepy, and kitschy looks ahead!
