Halloween Costumes For Gingers: Ariel, The Little Mermaid

With redheads not being hugely well-represented in Disney films (for Brave, we are so very thankful), The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel has long been our favourite ginger Disney character to cling on to, and a great choice as a Halloween costume for redheads!

Ariel is curious, determined, and beautiful, which are all traits we’re happy to have associated with red hair.

So, flame-haired beauties, let your hair down and dress up as The Little Mermaid this Halloween. Here’s how to put your costume together…

Hair

Now is the time to really accentuate your red hair. Lots of volume will work wonders for this outfit, so brush away, just like Ariel!

Top tip: after washing your hair, apply a plum-sized amount of volumising hair mousse to help you along. Blow-dry with your head upside down and your ginger hair will be full of volume and oomph.

 

Make-Up

Keep things fairly simple, but maximise your peepers with eyelash curlers and plenty of mascara. Use false eyelashes if you wish.

A slick of pink or red lipstick is the perfect way to finish off this Halloween costume for gingers.

Emma dresses herself in mismatched multi-seasonal clothing and has a talent for sniffing out the next opportunity for coffee. She believes that any new band with a female musician is the next big thing and that whoever is currently dating Ryan Gosling is the luckiest lady on earth. Her biggest obsession is shopping online for castles, (probably) fueled by childish fantasies of finding her prince and settling down for a life of luxury, bathing in a pool of gin and bitter lemon. Other than that, though, she’ll be incessantly researching the latest gingerful news to deliver to Gingerkind.
