Dress Like Snooki of "Jersey Shore"

If you have some curves, you should flaunt them as Snooki for Halloween.

Clothes: Tight, tight is the name of the game. Underneath, wear a push-up bra and stuff it, if necessary (do whatever it takes to generate cleavage). Stuff yourself into a tight, super-short dress (extra points for cheetah or sparkly prints).

Shoes: Super high, strappy black, gold or silver heels. Dark nail polish or a French pedicure (eeek).

Body: Spray tan is a must. Over this, apply glitter body oil or lotion for extra glam.

Face: The smoky eye is a must with false eyelashes. Light lipstick.

Jewelry: Big rings, big necklaces or big glittery bangles.

Hair: Long hair is a must, so straighten hair with a flat-iron or buy a wig. Gotta get a pouf. Try Bumpits to add body up top. Pull back hair on sides.

Your friend can buy himself a six-pack and go as Mike "The Situation."

Zombie Girl

Creepy dead girl
Hair Styles, Cuts and Do's

This look is especially creepy with a super pale face and absolutely no smiling. You might even trickle some fake blood below the lip (a good look for all of these creepy hairstyles in this gallery).

To get this look, curl hair with curlers or an iron, being careful to not curl all the way up to your crown (you want that straight). Take gel or mousse and flatten hair at the crown, then tease the curls so they look like this picture. You could bobby pin the hair on your crown in place to keep it flat.

Go Spiky for Halloween

Spikes are hot for Halloween
Hair Styles, Cuts and Do's

The key to this look is the color and lots of product. A temporary hair color will work great for this. Apply mousse or gel, blow dry hair out with a flip and then tease the roots so ends stand up straight. You'll need pomade wax to pinch the ends into points. Finish with lots of spray.

You can't do this look alone

This look will take either long hair or a fabulous wig. There's likely some sort of shell underneath which allows hair to be wrapped around with such volume. Note: This hair has been crimped.
