Scream Queens

Scream Queens

Channel your favourite historical hair heroine this Halloween and let your locks rule


Elizabeth Taylor’s infamous depiction of Cleopatra in the 1963 Hollywood blockbuster saw her make an astounding 65 costume changes. Dripping in ornate jewellery, the film's hero outfit was a 24-carat gold cape made of gold leather and embellished with thousands of beads and sequins. Make like a modern day Egyptian Queen by cleansing hair with label.m Diamond Dust Shampoo, infused with real diamond dust particles and champagne for the ultimate hair indulgence, and adorn yourself with Toni&Guy Beetle Jewels - a new twist on the Eygyptian Scarab beetle motif. Draw a heavy slick of Eyeko Eye Do Eyeliner along the upper lash line to mimic Taylor's opulent wide-eyed appearance and complete your look with Ilena Makri gold and diamond earrings - the only gems fit for Pharoah. 

Marie Antoinette

Sofia Coppola’s saccharine homage to French Queen Marie Antoinette’s extravagant 18th century lifestyle saw actress Kirsten Dunst cavorting about the Palace of Versailles in a spectacular range of towering powdered wigs and and fancy frou-frou ballgowns. Give cheeks a suitably flushed appearance with Yves Saint Laurent Blush Volupté in Heart of Light and tease hair into a gravity-defying updo, spritzing with label.m Powder Pink Spray for a perfect pastel finish. Add a touch of spooky elegance to hair with the Toni&Guy Black Widow Clip, before stepping dainty feet into Manolo Blahnik Giraldi pumps - très chic.

Elizabeth Tudor

Flame-haired Elizabeth Tudor was brought back to life in the 1998 film, with Cate Blanchett in the titular role. When she wasn’t on the battlefield, ruffled necklines, delicately embroidered jeweled dresses and a ghostly pallor completely her signature look. Mimic The Virgin Queen's lustrous curly locks with label.m Curl Cream and crown with a bejewelled Toni&Guy Flower Girl Headband. Accessorise with an embellished Aldo Graveglia Clutch Bag -  perfect for stashing your Charlotte Tilbury Air-brush flawless finish skin-perfecting micro-powder for the ultimate maquillage.
