This spooky spider web do is fun and functional, but as I have tried a similar hairstyle myself in the past I do want to caution that this is one where you really need another person to actually do the style for you it you want it to look neat.  Also, be to be sure to use no tear elastic bands, not rubber bands.   Tutorial on this is at Princess Piggies

If you want to go for a no-hair look, Instructables has a tutorial on how to make an SFX theatrical bald cap wig
