Many iconic characters have red hair: Jessica Rabbit, Ariel, Poison Ivy, even Kim Possible.

Try on a wedding gown to become Corpse Bride, match Katy Perry’s deep sapphire hairdo, or get some luscious sea blue locks to inspire the mermaid in you!  


Effie Trinket has so many hair colors it's hard to keep track, but it's impossible to forget her signature light purple powder curls! Or opt to be a purple unicorn or a dark mystical fairy!
