With Halloween almost here, it’s time to plan your costume – if you haven’t already! As well as choosing a sufficiently creepy/ sexy/ cool outfit (you do you, boo), this means nailing your hair and makeup. Because it’s all about those details if you want to stand out from the crowd. And, after all, isn’t that the aim of the game?
To help you win at Halloween 2022, we’re here with some timely inspiration. Read on for a recap of last year’s best-in-show, plus our top predictions for October 31 – including beauty how-tos with our fave influencers and your trusty Coco & Eve products.
Best Halloween Looks from 2021
Before we reveal our predictions for this All Hallow’s Eve, let’s recap our top 3 lewks from last year.
The Newcomer: Squid Game

THE viral streaming sensation of 2021, Squid Game made a major splash on last year’s trick-or-treating circuit. And with season 2 on the way (hurry UP already), Netflix’s most-watched show ever is set for an even bigger second showing.
The best bit about this Halloween theme? From the Red Light, Green Light Doll to the red uniformed Guards, the outfits are super simple to pull together. Grab yourself a green tracksuit and some white kicks and you’re instantly recognisable as a player. See how TikTok babe Steph Hui pulled off 067’s style – down to her wolf cut and freckles. Follow her routine with our Silky Hair Kit to nail this look!
The Fashion Girl’s Go-To: Euphoria
@berenicegss Love this hairstyle 💗 @Coco & Eve #cocoandeve #sp ♬ Forever - Labrinth
Also part of the zeitgeist was anything Euphoria-inspired. Because, well, EUPHORIA. Last October, you couldn’t hit up a spooky party without rubbing shoulders with a self-styled Maddy, Rue or Cassie. And needless to say, we were here for it.
Thankfully, season two of the cult show brought us even more epic beauty and fashion moments – so there’s no shortage of inspo for your Halloween style.
One beauty look we can’t go past? Cassie’s Y2K braided tendrils – and here’s how to get them with French TikTokker, Berenice and our Miracle Hair Elixir. You’re welcome.
The Smart Cookie: Beth Harmon from The Queen’s Gambit

If you’d told us we’d ever be obsessed with a show about chess, we’d have LOL’d long and hard. Then along came troubled prodigy Beth Harmon in late 2020, and we were suddenly glued to our screens, swooning over her killer outfits and swishy blowout. While coveting her super brain.
And it seems we weren’t alone, with the Beth clones coming out in their droves last Halloween – kitted out in 60s shifts or grey turtlenecks. With rooks and knights in tow.
To see how you can create her signature bob with super-long strands, check out this influencer vid – and don’t forget to prep your hair for heat styling with our Miracle Hair Elixir.
Hot Halloween Predictions 2022 – Get Ready with Us
So what’ll we all be wearing this year? We’re stanning these looks – and here’s how to get them with Coco & Eve!
‘90s Nostalgia: Cameron Diaz from The Mask

Another nostalgic pick harks back to 1994 when an unknown bombshell called Cameron Diaz made her movie debut in The Mask. Her look, from her skinny brows to her Bardot-esque blonde locks and itty-bitty red dress, was ICONIC. So, with our ‘90s and noughties obsession in full swing, we’re calling it our fave easy-to-achieve look for Halloween.
Back to that gorgeous golden ‘do for a minute… If your bleached strands are looking less va-va-voom and more dull and damaged, don’t stress – there’s still enough time to call in the big guns. Namely, our new Hair Repair Bundle.
With our Bond Building Pre-Shampoo to repair and strengthen broken and existing bonds, it’ll help reduce breakage by 85%. Meanwhile, our Sweet Repair Mask will deliver intense nourishment for silky-soft, revitalised locks – with plenty of superstar shine.
Couple’s Pick: Barbie and Ken

Come on Barbie, let’s go party! We’re super excited to see Greta Gerwig’s movie about Mattel’s leading lady, due out next year. And we’re guessing we’re not the only ones who’ll be rocking our best neon lycra and forcing our fella to go bare-chested in a week or two!
You can find your his-and-hers outfit inspo here. But to nail the Barbie brief, you’ll also need to perfect her golden glow. Featuring our Sunny Honey Bali Bronzing Foam, Deluxe Vegan Kabuki Brush, Hypoallergenic Soft Velvet Mitt and Back Tan Applicator, our Bali Bae Self Tan Set has everything you need to help you transform into a living, breathing, walking doll. Make sure you check it out.
For Him: The Sandman

This year’s all about the Netflix comic book adaption, and there will no doubt be countless men morphing into Morpheus, aka the Sandman, this Halloween. To get the darkly dramatic look, simply raid your wardrobe for black threads – bonus points for leather. Then concentrate on perfecting that gloriously thick and tousled black mop.
Get the look with our Super Hydration Kit, featuring ALL hair must-haves – the Deep Clean Scalp Scrub, Super Hydrating Shampoo, Super Hydrating Cream Conditioner and Like a Virgin Hair Masque.
Sibling Style: Cheryl and Jason Blossom from Riverdale
@lunalurey POV: Watching your fave #RIVERDALE ginger siblings transformation coming to life with @coco_and_eve ❤️ It was super easy to straighten bcos the hair mask helps to make my hair silkier and softer. What should I do next? #cocoandeve #halloweenlook #halloween #redhair #cocoandevepartner ♬ Youngblood - 5 Seconds of Summer
If you’re blessed with fiery red locks, firstly, we hate you. Secondly, we insist you find a fellow flame-haired pal or sibling (better yet – your male twin!) and do your best impression of Riverdale’s (creepily?) close siblings, Cheryl and Jason Blossom.
To get that signature Blossom gloss, grab our Silky Hair Set, featuring our Like A Virgin Hair Mask to deeply hydrate strands and the Miracle Hair Elixir. Instantly smoothing frizz and boosting shine, this serum/oil hybrid also protects hair against heat styling up to 220°c.
Happy Halloween, everybody!
