As the omnipresent pumpkins suggest, Halloween is nearly upon us - it's tomorrow! - so it's time to make any last-minute costume decisions, including what to do with your hair.

Anything zombie related is a great option for anyone who hasn't had the time to plan their look in advance, so we have a super simple zombie updo tutorial to help you out.

How to style it

Step 1
If you have time to wash your hair beforehand, great, if not, dampen it first, then spritz L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out Heatspray evenly throughout.

Step 2
Rough blow-dry your hair, then, when it's still kind of damp, flip your head upside down to complete your blowout. This will lift your hair at the root and volumize your style right off the bat.

Step 3
Once dried, spray your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Lift sections of hair up then tease them with a fine-tooth comb. Gently pull the hair back on itself, taking care not to rip through your locks as this can damage them.

Step 4
Keep teasing until your hair is as big and as fuzzy as you want it to be. The great thing about zombie hair is that you can go as wild as you like!

Step 5
Gather your hair up and pin it messily into a French twist, bun or knotted updo. Pull a few pieces loose around your face and muss the top and sides with your hands.

Step 6
To complete the look, mist it all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
