Last Minute Halloween Ideas From Monkey Brains - Review and Giveaway


Halloween is here.  If you're still deciding what to do to perfect your costume this year, here's some ideas from Monkey Brains to create the most amazing spikes, Mohawks, twists, dreads, or any other ghoulish hairstyle needed:

Little Devil - Part your hair down the middle, diving hair into two sections towards the front.  Using Monkey Brains' Twisted Sticky Hair Glue, twist hair up and into a spike.  Sculpt the spike into a horn shape and finish with black color hairspray for the ultimate devilish look.

Angel - Pulling off the look of an angel isn't just about soft fabrics and a halo - soft and sweet hair is important too.  Achieve an angelic look by setting hair in thick tendrils using either hot rollers or a curling iron.  Once the curls are set and cooled, use a small amount of Monkey Brains Grease Monkey Hair Pomade and gently run your fingers down the curls to loosen for fullness, give a high shine finish, and smooth fly-aways.


Twilight Hottie - Is there a werewolf in you dying to get out this Halloween?  Rock Jacob's faux hawk using Monkey Brains Crazy Sticky Hair Gel.  Simply slick your hair towards the front, working it up into a faux hawk as you go.  Monkey Brains Crazy Sticky Hair Gel will hold that hawk in place no matter how many vampires you battle.  If a vampire is more your style, let your inner Edward shine with tousled locks, casual clothes and pale, sparkling skin.  Slick a small amount of Monkey Brains Grease Monkey Hair Pomade in your hands and rub vigorously through your hair for the ultimate in undead bed head.

Lady Gaga - This style chameleon has so many fab looks this year, it's hard to choose just one this Halloween.  Why not try her latest look, the hair beret!  Worn with any fashionable outfit, the hair beret is a simple look to master.  First, slick your hair back into a tight ponytail using Monkey Brains Super Sticky Hair Gel.  Fasten with a hair band and wrap ponytail once around to form a slight twist, then sweep up towards your forehead.  Using hairpins, shape ponytail to form a hair beret that swoops slightly across the forehead and right eye.  Tuck ends under using hairpins and finish with hairspray.

Monkey Brains is a collection of hair care that allows you to express yourself. To be fun, be cool and be yourself! With two Gels, two Glues, a Pomade, a Hair Refresher and a Shampoo and Conditioner you will be able to rock whatever hairstyle you're feelin' at that moment.One day you don't feel like getting in the shower and the next you're searching for the hair gel. But you're confident about how you want to look on any given day. Monkey Brains gives you the tools to look cool and have fun doing it.

I've got to say, I'm loving the overall package design of Monkey Brains products.  They appeal to children and have a unique look.  They're not something I could easily dismiss when I saw them on a store shelf.  My kids think the monkeys and bright colors are super cool too.  But, as we all know, looks aren't everything.  It's the actual product that matters.  I recently received the Super Softy Conditioner and the Goop Out Shampoo for review.  All the kids were excited to try them in the shower.

The yellow packaging of the shampoo and conditioner are shaped like bananas and feature a monkey on them.  That definitely appealed to the kids.  The Goop Out Shampoo is formulated to remove excess gunk and buildup from hair styling products.  Both the shampoo and conditioner have a pleasant smell and lather well.  They leave our hair feeling soft and manageable, even after we have had gels and hairspray in our hair all day. 


Although Monkey Brains hair care products are geared for kids under the age of 14, I have to admit that I tried the products on my own hair as well. After all, mommy wanted to know exactly what she was putting on her kids' hair. I have a little secret to tell, I'm more than double the age of 14 and I'd use Monkey Brains products on my own hair any day.  Monkey Brains has me and my kids impressed with their innovative packaging and super cool line of hair products.

The Monkey Brains collection is available nationwide at mass-market retailers including Walgreens, Walmart, Krover, Food 4 Less, and Ralph's.
