What are You Going to be for Halloween?

If you’re like me, you’ve had your Halloween costume planned out since, well, last Halloween. But it’s not as easy as it was when we were little. Remember those days? Mom and dad would pick out whichever costume they thought made us look absolutely adorable and we went with it because all that mattered was the end goal: a pillowcase full of candy. Maybe some glitter here, some face paint there, and a dash of hair dye spray (if we were lucky), but all in all it was simple. It was easy. Not anymore.

Halloween – 1995. Me and my sisters rocking the group costumes. #SquadGoals

Presentation is Key

As an adult the end goal is no longer the pillowcase full of candy. It’s not even about the costume anymore. It’s the overall look that’s important: costume, makeup, hair, character. The average person does not have the experience or expertise to create the looks we see blowing up our social media feeds every day so we usually settle for YouTube tutorials (that make no sense even after you’ve watched them a million times) and Pinterest posts (that go from A to Z while seeming to forget about the other 24 letters). Not this year, my friends! This year: ExperChat. Once you have your costume, take it a step further by video-chatting one on one with Experts to complete the look.

ExperChat Does Halloween Makeup

Let’s say you know what you want to be but your normal look does not represent well (i.e. you want to be a skeleton, mermaid, vampire, or something of that nature), what do you do? Reach for the makeup! Then what? YouTube? Yeah, okay. The problem is you have to pause and rewind over and over to get the steps and it does not make adjustments for your own features. This year try something different, something more personalized. Search ExperChat for makeup Experts and find one you like!

Pro tip:

Download the app (available in the App Store and Google Play Store) and send them a chat first. That way you can see if they know exactly how to help with whatever look you’re going for and you can see how long of an appointment you need.

ExperChat Does Halloween Hair

Alright, you’ve got your costume down and your makeup situation is under control – how about that hair? You can’t be a mermaid with a ponytail! You just can’t! Again, there’s YouTube and Pinterest. Great options for baking, not the best options for actually learning techniques. Also – have you ever heard of a Pinterest Fail? It’s basically when bad things happen to good people while they try out something they’ve seen on Pinterest. Don’t lose hours of your life trying to flip when you sould curl. Search ExperChat for hairstylists that are happy to help.

ExperChat may not be able to provide consultations on your character but I’m sure that with your new terrifyingly terrific transformation you’ll be able to knock it out of the park. Show us your Halloween look by tagging us on social media with #ExperChat! We’d love to see what you’ve come up with.
