Every now and then a commercial will feature a character that stands out and everyone just loves that character. Flo from Progressive Insurance is that character for 2014. Flo is the adorable, upbeat host of many of Progressive Insurance’s commercials.
How to Be Flo from Progressive Insurance This Halloween
She’s a fun costume pick for any Halloween event and you can look just like her with a few simple accessories. The first thing you’ll want to work on is capturing Flo’s hairstyle.
It’s often described as perky and it fits her personality. Style your hair so your bangs part to the side and give your hair some extra volume in the back. For best results, try using a volume styling hair insert.
Once you’re done with that, add a simple navy headband and you’ll be well on your way to looking just like Flo. If you don’t want to style your hair like Flo’s or if you don’t have time to, you can opt for a wig that’s already styled and just add a headband to it.
Once you’ve finished with styling your hair, you’ll need the clothing part of the costume. For this, you’ll want to wear a white polo and white pants. Next, grab a white apron.
There are actually official aprons with Progressive’s logo available or you can use a heat transfer to put the logo on your apron if you want to do it yourself. For shoes, opt for blue sneakers. If you want to match Flo exactly, wear Navy Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers.
After you have Flo’s outfit and hair done, you’ll want to get a few accessories to complete the look. The first accessory to look for is an ‘I Heart Insurance’ pin. This badge is usually pinned to Flo’s apron on the top right side.
On the left side of the apron across from the badge is Flo’s nametag. Her nametag is white with two blocks of color above it. The first block of color is orange and the second one is blue. Flo’s name is typed in all caps using a plain font.
You’ll want to purchase a watch that’s small and has a brown leather band to match Flo’s if you don’t already have one like it. Finally, don’t forget the auto insurance box that Flo carries. You can create your own insurance box or you might be able to find one to purchase that you can use as a prop.
Now all you need to do is add some bright red lipstick and your Flo costume will be complete. If you want to match Flo’s lipstick exactly, then opt for MAC Lady Bug lipstick since it’s the official brand she wears.
