(Halloween-friendly hairstyles of today's hottest icons: M.I.A., Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry)
But wild hair and crazy wigs aren't just a Halloween costume trend right now. Superstars like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and M.I.A. have been regularly sporting rainbow-vibrant locks. Most recently, Rihanna and LA Ink star Kat Von D have both been showing off some unnaturally fiery-fierce red strands. Hip-hop sensation Nicki Minaj has also been making the most of the spectrum, showcasing wigs regularly in almost every color.

Flashback to Lil Kim's wild wigs, Gwen Stefani's blue pigtails, Claire Danes' alterna-teen orange-red do, and the rest of the Manic Panic-splattered hair color stories of the 1990s.
