The Best 2020 Halloween Costume Includes A Bubblegum Pink Wig

Remember when dyeing your hair pink was outlandish? In 2020, it feels like dabbling in semi-permanent hair color, especially light pink, is just as common as trimming your own curtain bangs.

If you thought about going pink, but never actually went through with it, Halloween is right around the corner, which means that it's the perfect time to test the waters with an affordable pink wig. It's a great no-commitment way to get into character for your Zoom costume party and, better still, there are tons of low-key iconic characters and celebrities who made pink hair their signature.

Brigitte Bardot in

Two Weeks in September

A classic Brigitte Bardot costume requires bright blonde hair — unless you go as her character in the 1967 film Two Weeks in September. The best part? You're still channeling her unique brand of Parisian chic, just with a baby-pink bob and heavy black eyeliner. Win-win!

Rihanna Circa 2014

Fine, it's not from a movie, but RiRi doesn't follow the rules, so we're breaking them with this Halloween-ready look. The icon's bubblegum pixie, circa 2014, would make the cutest and easiest costume, especially since Amazon has a carbon-copy wig that was actually inspired by the star.
