You can also use gel, but colored hair spray tends to make your hair less goopy after applying. This tutorial provides some great tips on how to completely color just one section of your hair without it bleeding over. It also washes out easily!

4. Teasing Your Hair

So, you have the hair at your temples sprayed or chalked white, and now you need to know how to get the rest of your hair to stand up straight for your Bride of Frankenstein costume. Well, teasing or backcombing your hair is relatively easy. Start at the root with a rat tail comb or brush, and work your way to your ends, combing towards your head. Don't intensely comb up and down, as this can lead to breakage. Just do one pass down, take out the brush and go back to the top and repeat until you get the volume you want. To get your hair back to normal, wash and massage with a deep conditioner, like my Vanilla Bean Conditioner. Then, brush it out, working your way up from your ends.

Of course, one of the best ways to get the style you want without damaging, dying or cutting your hair is to buy a wig that's already close to what you want, ranging from cheap to extravagant at your local wig shop online. Luckily, most of them come with wig caps, too. And remember, to brush out your wig, hold it by the root of the hair, not the cap. This prevents the hair from being ripped out.

One of the problems with affordable, synthetic costume wigs is the unnatural shine of the hair strands. That doesn't mean you have to drop your whole paycheck on a real hair wig, though. Wash your wig with dry shampoo, and that should take the shine out.
