Harley Quinn is a character that has become so iconic, it’s hard to believe she was only introduced to the DC Comics universe in 1992. Since then, she’s become one of the most popular characters in comics, and with good reason: she’s strong and independent, but also has a ton of depth, thanks to her complicated relationship with Joker (who isn’t exactly the best boyfriend).
Moreover, she is the Joker’s sidekick, but she doesn’t share his psychopathic personality traits—rather, she’s a former psychiatrist who fell in love with him while treating him in Arkham Asylum. Her love for the Joker is both romantic and platonic: they’re partners in crime, but also friends. Their relationship is one of the most compelling relationships in comics history, and Harley Quinn has become an iconic character because of it.
Harley Quinn is known for her wild and crazy hairstyles—which is perfect for cosplayers looking for inspiration! Whether you’re dressing up as Harley for Halloween or just want to try something new with your own hair, we’ve got some ideas that will have you feeling like an instant superhero.

#1 – Harley Quinn Curly Pigtail with Blue and Pink Locks
This Harley Quinn hairstyle features two pigtails in a curly style, with one pigtail having blue hair and the other having pink hair. It’s big and curly, and it’s a little bit wild—but not just any kind of wild. It’s the kind of wild that makes you feel like you can take on the world, even if that world is just going to work or school. Her curly pigtails are a staple of her look, but the color of her hair adds an element of fun that makes this character stand out. It’s great for any young girl who wants to feel like a bad-ass super villain!
To create this look, part your hair in two sections, one on each side of your head. Tie your hair into a ponytail on the left side of your head. Then, wrap the remaining hair around it and secure it with an elastic band.Pull out some strands from the bottom half of the ponytail and separate them into three sections.Twist each section into a curl before securing it in place with bobby pins.
Repeat the process on the other side of your head so that there are two curly ponytails on either side of your head. Brush out any loose strands from both sides and secure them into place with bobby pins if necessary.
To create Blue and Pink Locks, start by getting your hair wet. Then, take a small amount of the Blue Locks in one hand and a small amount of the Pink Locks in the other. Rub them together until they create a shimmering blue/pink mixture that is about 1/4″ thick.
Apply it to your head in sections, making sure that every part gets covered. Then leave it on for at least two hours before rinsing out with warm water.
#2 – Classic Harley Quinn Pigtails
This Harley Quinn hairstyle is a classic, and for good reason. It’s perfect for a night out, or just to wear to work. The hair is styled into two pigtails, with a few strands of hair loose around the face. The pigtails are held in place by two thin bands that go just above the ears on either side of the head. They’re fun and playful, but still very feminine and polished. It is perfect for anyone who wants to emulate the character’s look, or just wants a cute style that’s easy to do!
To have this look, section hair into two even sections, and use a rat-tail comb to make a line of bobby pins across the center of each section.Take one side and twist it back on itself, so that the ends are pointing in opposite directions. Gently pull the twist to tighten it, then pin it up as high on your head as possible. Repeat with the other side, so that you have two pigtails pinned up at the top of your head.
Once both pigtails are in place, use bobby pins to secure them in place at the base of your skull (where your neck meets your head). You can also use bobby pins along the length of each pigtail to help keep them up against your head—just be sure not to secure too tightly or else you’ll risk pulling out hairs or causing pain.
#3 – Short Harley Quinn Hairstyle
This Harley Quinn hairstyle is an elegant look that works well on all face shapes, but especially those with round faces. The short length of this style helps her minimize the appearance of a large forehead and accentuate her cheekbones. This hairstyle features light pink and blue roots, which adds an unexpected twist to the traditional red dye job. This color scheme can be paired with any outfit or makeup look, making it an ideal choice for women who want something bold but versatile.
To have this look, wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo and conditioner. Blow dry your hair so it’s completely dry and smooth. Use a flat iron to straighten the ends of your hair, then brush through the rest of it to smooth out any frizz or flyaways. Apply lighter blue to the roots of your left hair, starting at the front and working back toward the crown, allowing each section to soak in for a couple minutes before moving on to another section.
When all of your roots are colored on the left side, apply lighter pink to each section of hair from root to tip on the right side, making sure that every strand is covered with color by the time you finish applying it (this will take some time).
#4 – Harley Quinn Short Curly Hair with Pink and Blue Roots
This Harley Quinn hairstyle has short curly hair with pink and blue roots. Her hair is styled in a bob cut, which has grown out to a shoulder-length cut. The short curls are a perfect complement to the vibrant pink and blue roots, which add just enough color to make your hair stand out without being overwhelming. It’s an edgy, playful style that will look amazing on anyone who wants to feel like their inner Harley Quinn!
To create this hairstyle, wash and condition your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Apply an all-natural leave-in hair moisturizer to your hair, focusing on the ends of your hair.Section off the top of your head into three sections. Pinch each section between your fingers and twist it around itself until you have a tight curl.
Apply a small amount of gel to each section, then twist the curls back into place so that they are facing outward from your head instead of inward.Allow the gel to set for at least an hour before rinsing it out with warm water and shampooing with a sulfate-free shampoo again to remove any residue left behind by the gel product used earlier in this process.
For coloring your hair, take a small amount of blue dye and apply it to the lower section of your head (where your curls begin). Make sure that both sections are completely covered in dye. Now take a small amount of pink dye and apply it all over the middle section of your head (including along any wave lines). This will create a gradient effect that looks great on everyone!
#5 – Harley Quinn Cute Baby Pigtails
Harley Quinn Baby Pigtails is a hairstyle that consists of two pigtails on either side of the head. It is accompanied by bangs that are cut short and swept over her forehead. These baby pigtails are similar to many other pigtail hairstyles, except that it’s more colorful, and it has little bows on the end of each pigtail.
It is also a fun and whimsical hairstyle that is perfect for the girl who wants to feel like a villain. Furthermore, this colorful look is perfect for a fun night out with friends or as an everyday style, especially if you work in an office or school where bold colors are frowned upon.
To create this look, you’ll want to start by creating a base wig from scratch using a wig cap and extensions. The wig cap will help hold the wig on your head, and the extensions will allow you to make it longer (and in this case, add volume).Next, you’ll need to cut the ends of each extension so that they’re even with the edges of the wig cap. This will give the illusion that they’re part of the same unit—which they are.
Now that your base wig is ready, you can add some color! Grab some hair chalk and dip your fingers into it until they’re covered in powdery pigment. Then run those fingers through all of your hair until it’s completely coated with chalk. Use more than one color if you’d like; just don’t go overboard or else your hair might start looking like a rainbow!
Once everything has dried overnight (or for at least three hours), take out those bobby pins and start securing sections of hair at different heights throughout your head so that they resemble pigtails!
#6 – Harley Quinn Side Low Bun Hairstyle
The Harley Quinn hairstyle is a subdued take on the famous DC Comics villain. The hair is pulled back from the face and bunched at the nape of the neck, with a few strands left loose to hang down in front of the ears. The main components of this hairstyle are a side part, blue hair dye, and a low bun on the side of your head. You can easily add some red lipstick and a few piercings if you want to really nail the look.
To start having this hairstyle, prepare your hair by combing it out with a bristle brush, then gather it into a ponytail at the top of your head. Apply blue dye to your hair. Use the “swirl” technique so that the color will be even all over your hair. If you don’t have any leftover dye, don’t worry! You can always add more later on if needed!
Once all of your hair has been dyed blue, let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing out any excess dye with cold water (we recommend using a mixture of vinegar and water). Then dry your hair thoroughly before styling it into a high ponytail or low bun!
Take the end of your ponytail and wrap it around itself, creating a bun. Secure with an elastic band.Next, tease the front section of your hair to add volume, then comb it over to one side and pin it in place with bobby pins or barrettes.
Finally, take small sections of hair from the front section and wrap them around the base of the bun to conceal it completely. If necessary, use bobby pins or barrettes again as needed until everything is securely pinned in place.
