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.
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.’
Wear those locks—and your costume—like a medal of honor. Nothing speaks confidence like a borderline inappropriate costume at your office Halloween luncheon.
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
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
This is the God of Thunder at his peak. Muscles glistening, hair flowing and with his first true love, Mjölnir. @Machoo
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
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
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
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
Our friend @aln.morales nails this iteration of Bucky Barnes, Capt. America’s brainwashed best friend. Metal arm et all.
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
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
Billie Hargrove (Stranger Things)
A Patriotic 70’s Bro, Or the Cowbell Guy
Nothing scarier than the devil himself, @parkershooksfx is realistic enough to make you a little uncomfortable.
