So pretty!
Ever wish you could change your hair color for a day just to test out how it looks temporarily? Well, Halloween is a great excuse to try out a new shade! Or you might have already dyed your hair purple and feel like incorporating it into a costume this October. Whether you use temporary hair chalk, permanent dye, or you want to buy a wig for the occasion, we rounded up some TV show and movie characters that really pull off purple hair. There are some pop culture moments in here featuring celebrities with lilac locks that you can channel, too. (Lil’ Kim at the ’99 VMAs, anyone?)
We’ve also rounded up a bunch of other Halloween costume ideas based on hair color, so there’s ones for blondes, brunettes, and red heads. Or since Halloween is on a weekend, you can have various costumes planned wearing a different wig shade for each if you plan on going all out.

This Guardian of the Galaxy has the coolest leather costume and weapons to fight evil in space. Paint your body green and your skin will complement the vivid hair color perfectly.

This fun flick’s main character definitely has a signature look with her colored hair and goggles. Add a sweatshirt under a green jacket and you’ll look exactly like the type to steal Scott Pilgrim’s heart.

Starfire is such a cool character in Teen Titans known for her purple hair but also her awesome powers. The live-action series, Titans, features Anna Diop as the space alien. Wear a purple onesie or top and skirt combo with thigh-high boots to match her flowing locks.

This is one girl you don’t wanna mess with. A plaid skirt, leather jacket, and eye mask will help you nail the look. And maybe a spear if you happen to have one on hand. (Jk, jk.)
This was a VMA look that will always be remembered. Either DIY your own skin-baring costume or find a replica of the jumpsuit, but just make sure it matches your purple hair.

A beige bodycon dress with a turtleneck will transform you into Laura Dern, um, I mean Admiral Holdo. Also, the waves in her lilac hair are downright perfect?!

This aired a while ago, but still makes such a fun costume. Wear an all-white two-piece outfit with a big “A” on it and a short purple hairstyle to look like Ashley O.

Dove Cameron plays Queen Maleficent “Mal” Bertha on this Disney show and sports deep purple hair. If you’re a fan of the series, why not try to recreate her costume?
This Met Gala ensemble sparked a ton of memes (especially with Kendall in all orange by her side). A plunging gown, feather boa, and long straight lilac hair will get your costume across.
Okay, this one’s a little obscure, but the costumes are so fun! UFO was a show that only lasted for one season in 1970, but if you want a space vibe, the characters in purple wigs totally fit.

This cartoon character knows how to rock purple hair. Red sunnies, a pink shirt, and cargo pants finish off the ‘fit so you can be as cool as Reggie for the night.

This villain’s hair isn’t totally purple but it has highlights in the shade. Don a cutout leather bodysuit and gloves and show off your fighting moves for Halloween.
