What care should you have when dyeing your hair for Halloween?

To ensure you prep your hair properly before loading up on your Halloween color spray, we asked an expert to share some top tips for getting it right. "Do a deep conditioner before [you apply] to help even out the porosity, and make sure you have a clarifying shampoo on hand for when you have to wash it out," says Kristina Dimoplon, stylist at Live By the Sword Salon (opens in new tab) in Brooklyn, New York. 

Dimoplon also suggests that those with processed and dry hair might risk getting stains on their strands, and those with "super" beach blonde hair should consider a wig as an alternative. This way you'll avoid staining your blonde tresses beyond spooky season. 

No matter what you're doing for Halloween—going out, staying in, dressing up or dressing down—we highly recommend indulging in the scariest movies on Netflix. in the lead-up to get you in the mood. October wouldn't be complete without 'em!
