Marilyn Monroe Costume

Attending a Halloween party or costume party as Marilyn Monroe or any glamorous movie starlet is a chance to be in costume while still feeling beautiful and sexy.

Marilyn Monroe wore her hair in lengths ranging from short to medium – not quite shoulder length. Her hair was controlled into large waves and curls but was also soft and sexy looking because it was a bit tosseled. Duplicating Marilyn’s deep waves and big curls is easy. All you need is an understanding of roller setting. If your hair curls easily, you can use hot rollers on your dry hair. A wet set with what are called ‘magnetic’ rollers gives a firmer set and may resemble Ms Monroe’s hair more closely. (Magnetic rollers are not really magnetized. They are smooth plastic rollers with no ridges or teeth.)

Do you have long hair? Marilyn Monroe’s hairstyles were of medium to short length. Mimic her hairstyle by first: following the directions above. When the top, sides and front of the style are satisfactory, gather the back into a small twist and tuck it neatly at the nape of your neck. If it is possible, arrange the back layers of your hair to cover the twist.

Ms Monroe’s hair was pastel blonde in color. If your hair is dark, you can, of course wear a blonde wig. You may also want to style your own hair as above and dress as another movie starlet.

Don’t forget the red lipstick!
