There's a cliché that claims blondes have more fun, and whether you're a natural blonde or not, there's no time more appropriate to test this theory than Halloween. With inspiration from iconic television characters like Daenerys Targaryen to real-life icons like Britney Spears or celebrities just doing Halloween right (we're looking at you, Winnie Harlow), blonde hair (or a good blonde wig) makes for plenty of fun, instantly recognizable Halloween costumes. 

As a natural brunette with a fear of bleaching my hair, Halloween provides the perfect excuse to satisfy my longing for blonde beachy waves. This year, use your blonde locks as inspiration for your costume or run to the store to grab a wig. Whether you're looking for a costume you can throw together from the pieces in your closet or hoping to put your creative skills to the test, we have 15 popular Halloween costumes with blonde hair that range from easy to expert.
