Halloween Costume Ideas for Guys With Flow

Alright boys, listen up. You’ve waited until the last possible minute. There is a party tonight, or tomorrow, or both, you’ve thought about it casually 15 times. What do you have to show for all that great thinking? Neither a costume or a plan. Good work.

Lucky for you we’ve whipped up this handy list of last minute Halloween costumes for men with long hair. A few housekeeping items before we get into it.

Try Something New

Take Halloween as an opportunity to do something new and slightly radical with your hair. If you have straight hair, curl it. If you have curly hair, straighten it. Braid it, ‘hawk it, spike it, whatever. Do something you’ve never tried before, but you’ve secretly wanted to.

We do NOT recommend dying it or cutting it.

Be Creative

You can be the guy who says “I decided not to dress up this year,” and sit by yourself in a shady corner drinking wine coolers. Or you can be one of the awesome 5% of guys with long hair who actually did something epic for Halloween.

Don’t be like ‘Wine Cooler You.’ Be the ‘Awesome You.’

Own It

Wear those locks—and your costume—like a medal of honor. Nothing speaks confidence like a borderline inappropriate costume at your office Halloween luncheon.

UPDATE

This year we’ve updated the costumes with (mostly) actual photos from guys in our community, making this post the most original and entertaining yet.

With the administrative items covered, here is a list of Halloween costumes for guys with long hair. Rock it.

 

The Halloween Costumes

Aquaman

How could we not include the most prominent longhair in pop culture (arguably) from the last decade? Pulled off in stunning fashion by @marshallsmedia and @solid_ronin.

Kid Rock

Twist up your locks and rock out like the American Badass Detroit Cowboy, portrayed by El Rubio with braids and a quick stop at the thrift store. @healyhq701

Thor

This is the God of Thunder at his peak. Muscles glistening, hair flowing and with his first true love, Mjölnir. @Machoo

Halloween Costumes For Men With Long Hair - Thor

Plus Sized Thor

Thor had a brutal loss (really several) that he just couldn’t get over and hit the bottle, hard. Put on a few LBs and found possibly the most comfortable P.J.’s of all time. He’s still super, just.. more.. super lazy. At least his trusty axe, Stormbreaker stays by his side. @japalippe

The Joker

The Joker prefers his past to be “multiple choice.” So your costume can be any variation of the iconic villain. From “Want to know how I got these scars?” to “ Murray, when you bring me out, can you introduce me as Joker?.” @sassasquatch @pooler35

Post Malone

This pop icon is the perfect costume for the guy who doesn’t want too many props. All you need is your regular clothes and a Sharpie. @liamtricks

Loki

Hair dark as night, skin pale as the moon. Make your friends declare their undying fealty to you when you don the look of the God of Mischief. @chrisofthewake

Khal Drogo

If you’re looking for your khalisi and you’re down to absolutely go for it, attack this Halloween with the shirtless look of the King of the Grasslands. Guaranteed success—Khal Drogo has never lost a battle. @mre2023

Winter Soldier

Our friend @aln.morales nails this iteration of Bucky Barnes, Capt. America’s brainwashed best friend. Metal arm et all.

Tarzan

Proverbial King of the Jungle, our curly hair guest contributor, artist and musician puts other Tarzans to shame. @sergioartandmusic

William Wallace (and Scottish Warriors)

We didn’t get dressed up for nothin! Several takes on perhaps the greatest longhair legend in cinematic history. They may take our lives...but they’ll never take OUR FREEDOM! @sean_w_harry

King Ezekiel

If you’ve got the locs to replicate the King from The Walking Dead’s ‘Kingdom’, we will *surely* bend the knee. Tiger not included.

Legolas

You could choose virtually any character from Lord of The Rings, but why not the Sindarin Elf, son of the Elvenking Thranduil of Mirkwood, prince of the Woodland Realm? @deanofdank

Jon Snow

Have you taken The Black? Or are you King in the North? Is your hair just past your ears? Or down to your shoulders? Pre or post-resurrection? Possibly dead Jon Snow? Too many spoilers? Don’t worry, you got this.

WWE Wrestler

Whether it’s Macho Man Randy Savage @thereallohali, Triple H @professor_marvin or Hulk Hogan (coming in 2019) there are endless opportunities here.

Billie Hargrove (Stranger Things)

Billie is a caricature of what made long hair cool in the 80s. Drives a sick muscle car, pumps iron, wears cut-off flannels, and has a hell of a mullet. He also pulls. HARD. He really shined in the latest season of Stranger Things this summer… being possessed and all.

Captain Jack Sparrow

Arguably the finest we’ve seen @whowantstosavetheworldanyway, has it nailed.

A Patriotic 70’s Bro, Or the Cowbell Guy

A throwback from El Rubio circa 2008, ironically wearing a wig before he actually had long hair. Complemented by Andrew Meeks. @healyhq701

Lucifer

Nothing scarier than the devil himself, @parkershooksfx is realistic enough to make you a little uncomfortable.

Fred Flinstone

Yabba-Dabba DOOOOOOOO @thereallohali

Wayne & Garth

We’ve seen many versions through the years, but who can beat El Moreno and his wife La Rubia in this dramatic portrayal of two iconic longhairs in American pop culture? @yobarto Maybe @professor_marvin

El Rubio (aka “Chris Healy”)

When you hit the iron factory with El Rubio, you may find yourself compelled to dress up as him. A flattering portrayal by @biggies23

  1. I was The Dude last year when my hair was still just a little too short to do it justice. That sweater is definitely making a reappearance this year.

  2. Long distance Forrest Gump was a hit at my work party. Now I’m doubling down and going win my girlfriend to a party as Lt. Dan (me with long hair) and my girlfriends just gonna throw her hair in a pony and wear the Forrest Gump getup. Forrest Gump for the win lol

  3. I went as Johnny Depp from Blow last year (George Jung) and for the few that recognised it, it was a hit.

    1. Author

      Dude yes!!! That’s freakin epic.

      We’re gonna do a call for Halloween pictures pretty soon, so keep that one close by.

  4. I went as Goku the other day and it went better than expected. A lot of hairspray for sure, but worth it.

  5. Khal Drogo all the way as he`s the reason that led me on this journey to long (really long) hair so thats a given and he wouldnt look half as terrifying without his mane.

  6. Well done, guys! Esp the two original ones, although El Rubio looks very odd with black hair.
