Whether Halloween is your favorite holiday or you simply participate when you're feeling inspired, we can all agree that it's best to work with what you've already got. That's why, this year, we suggest ditching the wigs and letting your own hair shine. Whether short, long, curly, or straight, if you have dark hair, there are plenty of costumes that don't require any crazy wigs. Not only are you saving some extra cash, but you're also guaranteed to have a better night since you won't spend every 15 minutes making sure your wig is still in place.
