The Best 2020 Halloween Costume Includes A Bubblegum Pink Wig

·3 min read

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.

From Natalie Portman in Closer to Zendaya in The Greatest Showman, click ahead for the wigs you need to make these stars come to life.
