These Celebrity Halloween How-Tos Are Frightfully Easy


Sexy and citified, TV’s famous textured “half-do” from the ’90s is all the rage again.

How-tos from Richard Mannah:

Step 1: Prep hair with Joico Power Whip on wet hair from roots to ends and begin blast-drying the hair until it’s completely dry.

Step 2: To create a natural-looking curl, use a ½-inch barrel iron and begin curling the hair, section by section from roots to ends. The smaller the sections, the more natural the finished look.
Step 3: Once completed, brush or use a large comb to soften and spotlight each curl; then shake hair out and apply Joico Beach Shake for maximum separation and curl definition.

Step 4: Take a horseshoe section from the corner of the brow to the crown on both sides, separating the top from the bottom, and tie a pony. To prevent seeing the pony from the front, drop your section slightly so the remaining hair of the pony falls on the underneath section.
Step 5: To make hair look bigger, use a brush to gently back brush the roots and mid lengths.

How-tos from Richard Mannah:

Step 1: Prep dry hair with Joico Body Shake from roots to ends.

Step 2: Begin flat-ironing hair from roots to ends, lifting strands in the direction of a high ponytail.
Step 3: Create the top ponytail by separating hair from ear to ear, starting in the front. Use cheekbones as a guide for placement, and begin brushing hair as flat and cleanly as possible into a high ponytail.
Step 4: After brushing, go over pony with a comb for a cleaner, flatter look.
Step 5: Then do the exact same thing by gathering all the remaining hair from the back and join it to the first ponytail. (Be sure to keep head upright to prevent a baggy ponytail.)
Step 6: Use Joico Flip Turn hairspray as you create each section for a cleaner, more polished finish.

Step 7: Want more drama? Simply wrap long hair extensions into the ponytail.

How-tos from Rick Perry:

Step 1: Create these bold tones with a formula of 3 parts Joico Color Intensity Yellow and 1 part Joico Color Intensity Kelly Green. Process for 20 minutes.

Step 3: Apply Blonde Life Brilliant Glow Brightening Oil to ends of hair for an extra dose of shine and protection.

How-tos from Larisa Love:

Step 1: Wear gloves!
Step 2: Apply Color Butter Red to damp hair. Start at the roots and work your way down, emulsifying product with your hands. (Note: The lighter the hair, the brighter the final red shade. Color will last approximately 10 shampoos.)

Step 4: Dry hair thoroughly and add Hollywood waves with a 2-inch barrel curling iron, bending all sections towards the face.
Step 5: Brush out hair.
Step 6: Grab a 2-inch section of hair around the face, and re-curl, pinning it against the head with a bobby pin to set for a few minutes
Step 7: Spray with Joico Flip Turn Hairspray for extra hold. Then, remove bobby pin and let the volume explode!
