Halloween Costumes: Face Painting Makeup for Bald and Shaved Heads

Updated on June 15, 2016

How to apply Halloween Costume makeup on a Bald or Shaved Head

The rising popularity of shaved head hair styles these days are just asking for full head Halloween Costumes to be made up for the Halloween Party Festivities this season. I bet you know at least 3 guys who have either gone bald and shaves completely or non-bald guys who prefer the very short, low maintenance style.Just in case you didn't know... this picture is of Seth Godin. He was the Founder of Squidoo and a Best Selling Author, and I hope, a really good sport.

Aang in Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon - with options for the movie Avatar: The Last Airbender (2010)

* For the movie version of Aang, just make it black instead of blue. * Do you usually have dark or black hair? Grow it out a little before Halloween, then ask the barber/hairdresser to shave in the arrow.

Remember: You don't need to have a shaved head to do these costumes. There is an alternative, but you'll need a Bald Cap to achieve these looks!

Pinhead from Hellraiser - Halloween FAIL-torial

Bald and all around would be even better. She's call this "FAIL", because it didn't work out with the pins, but awesome attempt. Maybe you could "nail" it. :D

Really cool, but complicated Pinhead...

Attaching the pins to previous Pinhead? See 3:57 for possible solution.

Mummy - With T-Shirt Design

Becoming Two Face - Batman's nemesis

Pumpky Pumpkin Head - Makes reference to bald cap, but you won't need it!

... and want to use these costume effects, you will need this Bald Cap.

Note: If you have dark hair, you may need to apply makeup to hide it, and may need to secure it with spirit gum or similar adhesive for the best effect.

Just a little dark eye shadow around the eyes. Dark clothes like a suit with dark turtleneck/shirt, dark overcoat and pants, or a brown robe like below. It's not required but a little padding like a pillow around your middle adds a nice touch, if you don't have that already. :D

      Well one time I was entertaining shaving my head -- it was the time I put a strong straightener on my permed and colored hair -- NOT a pretty sight and I probably would have looked better bald. Some interesting ideas!

      Hahahahaha (hoping that's Seth's response) Too funny to use his head. I couldn't help laughing out loud. I have to share this with a bald friend. Hope he doesn't unfriend me....

      I love the pumpkin head! But I'd go with the bald cap, of course. (I hope Seth is a good sport, too. A really good sport!)
