Halloween 2011: Costume Ideas

By Alison Alhamed | 10/17/2011 2:41:00 PM


Alrighty, stylists, Halloween is the time to shine and REALLY show off that creativity we know you're blessed with... but, here comes the age old question... what to be, what to be?!

Even with unmistakeable celebrity looks like Madonna, Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson, we couldn't help doing a little polling of our own, and went hunting on the internet for our favorite, most current and topical, costumes for Halloween 2011. Make sure you've got your sense of humor, and then check out the slideshow!


What we found online:

Celebrities who dress like it's Halloween every day: Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicky Minaj, David Arquette, Elton John, Marilyn Manson

Celebrities Who Made Headlines in 2011: Charlie Sheen, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Rupert Murdoch, Pippa Middleton

Group Celebrity Costumes: The Real Housewives of [Wherever], the cast of "Jersey Shore," the Seven Dwarfs, The Jonas Brothers, the Kardashians

Political "Stars": Anthony Weiner, Sara Palin, Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, Ron Paul, Occupy Wall Street protestor, Occupy Wall Street cop

Celebrity Couples: Ashton and Demi, Brad and Angelina, Jennifer and Justin, Kate and William, Katy Perry and Russell Brand, Justin and Selena, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, Rupert and Wendi Murdoch, Kimberly Stewart and Robert Pattison

Politically incorrect, distasteful "celebrity" costume ideas that we do NOT recommend: Casey Anthony, Chaz Bono, dead Charlie Sheen, Dr. Conrad Murray, Osama bin Laden

 Though Steve Jobs is SURE to be a huge costume this year, and we're bound to see plenty of Casey Anthonys, here's to keeping it creative, fun, and maybe a little bit sexy! And, if you're stumped on what to dress up as at the salon.. why not have some fun and go with one of our industry's finest?


Tabatha Coffey... Attire: All black. Hair: Blonde, short. Attitude: 100%

Robert Cromeans. Scottish garb? Check. Feather in your cap? Check.

Ted Gibson! Pink shirt and a huge smile and you're good to go!

The lovely Vidal... thick glasses, sexy swagger and a drapey scarf.

Janine Jarman has THE COOLEST style out there. We love her edgy look, happy attitude and super sharp business sense.

Women of Style: Brig Van OstenBrig Van Osten is a Halloween costume WAITING to happen! Her look is so easily identified, it's a wonder she hasn't trademarked it!
