Nothing's scarier than being unprepared with a cute look for Halloween. That's why we partnered with family-owned Design Essentials Natural to give you LIFE this Halloween. You know that we sing the praises of the DE Natural Almond & Avocado collection on a regular basis here in the NaturallyCurly office because we are all crazy about their easy-to-use detanglers, high-gloss shine mists, and volumizing stylers.

So, we shared these items with our friend Rochelle Masella, a.k.a. @DiscoCurls, to help her achieve 3 transformative hairstyles for Halloween. Watch her demonstrate how to use each product to achieve the styles, and how she transforms herself into one of the most popular icons of our generation with the use of makeup and keen wardrobe selection.

Prevent a Frightful Sight with Almond & Avocado

If there's one thing curlies don't want to do to their hair it's over manipulating it. The entire DE Almond & Avocado line was formulated with these powerful ingredients to soften, smooth, and seal hydration into curls. This is wonderful because the products help make styling the hair easier by minimizing the potential for hair breakage due to over manipulation.

In addition to its ability to soothe inflamed and irritated scalps, according to Tanya Choudhary and Shirin Mehdi of, "Almond oil strengthens the hair follicles and imparts a beautiful shine to your hair."

Also, Kanisha at recommends avocado oil because it is "Jam-packed with vitamins A, B, D, and E, protein, amino acids, magnesium, iron, copper, folic acid and fatty acids, avocado oil is superb for protecting and preventing damage to the hair."

Iconic Look #1: Free-flowing Funky Curls

To achieve this look, follow these steps:

  • Wash your hair with Almond & Avocado Moisturizing & Detangling Sulfate Free Shampoo.

  • Follow up with Almond & Avocado Moisturizing & Detangling Conditioner. Make sure you evenly distribute the conditioner throughout your hair so that every curl is cared for.

  • If needed, add clip-in curly extensions for this waist-length style. The clip-in curl pattern @DiscoCurls uses is the SEA Fiji Curl.

  • To create an authentic looking head of curls, spray the clip-ins and your real curls with water. Then, work Honey CurlForming Custard with Honey & Chamomile through the length of your hair. For a looser curl, style the curls into a braid out.

  • While the braid out air dries, apply your iconic, Halloween-sexy makeup. Watch @DiscoCurls transform herself in the video!

  • After the braid out completely dries, finish the look by gently separating and fluffing your curls. Then, lay those edges with Honey & Shea Edge Tamer using a toothbrush or a baby hair brush (yes, these exist!). Add a temporary soft brown color spray to your curls!

  • To complete your first pop icon makeover look for Halloween, dress like an icon! Watch @DiscoCurls style her outfit in the video.

Iconic Look #2: Top of the Pops Ponytail

To achieve this look, follow these steps:

  • Spritz water onto curls, but do not over saturate them. Then, use the Almond & Avocado Detangling Leave-In Conditioner through your hair.

  • Pull those curls back to create a low, sleek ponytail. Since you will be wearing a wig with baby hair, you want to protect your natural hair from drying out or breaking by wearing a wig cap.

  • Bonus Tip: If you already have box braids, you can still add moisture to your natural hair that's been braided into the extensions by lightly coating the braids with a small amount of the leave-in!

  • If you have a lot of braids, as modeled by @DiscoCurls, you will want to create 2 ponytails to achieve the look. You will need a large headwrap to get this iconic look. Watch the video to recreate @DiscoCurls's handy ponytail holding trick.

  • Style the wig's baby hairs with Honey & Shea Edge Tamer using a toothbrush or a baby hair hairbrush.

  • Finish the hairstyle by spraying your box braids down with Almond & Avocado Curl Control & Shine Mist.

  • Next, you'll want to watch the video so that @DiscoCurls can help you apply soft, sultry makeup and share the outfit styling for this iconic show-stopping, chart-topping look.

Iconic Look #3: Ruby Red Ropes

Items used for this look:

  • Use the Almond & Avocado Detangling Leave-In Conditioner on damp hair.

  • Distribute a generous amount of Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse to your curls.

  • Diffuse your curls. Once they are dry, section your hair; the sections don't have to be uniform. Create ponytails out of each section, adding Honey & Shea Edge Tamer at their base.

  • To make the ponytails more bulky and dramatic, clip in the SEA Fiji Curl, or a curl that looks similar to your curl pattern, around the base of each one. Add miniature butterfly clips to the ponytails to make them stand up.

  • Red is the reason for the season so spray the ponytails with a temporary color to create an ombre effect. To finish this iconic style, fashion yourself with fun colored makeup and complimentary red attire just like @DiscoCurls does in the video!

Haunt onlookers with these sultry, stylin' iconic looks, perfect for a cute and fun Halloween party or get together!
