Any Royale High player knows that halos make the experience go 'round—with over 20 unique designs and styles, they make for both the perfect accessory and collector's item. But what halos have the best designs? In the guide below, I'll be listing my picks for the top ten best halo designs in all of Royale High and explaining why I ranked each halo where I did.
Keep in mind, however, that this guide is just my opinion—this doesn't dictate which halos are best and which ones are worst, it's simply made for fun! Also, this list doesn't have anything to do with rarity—I strictly went off of designs and nothing else!
Royale High Halo Tier List - Best Designs
1. Halloween Halo 2021
Starting off with a semi-hot take in the Royale High community, the 2021 Halloween Halo has, in my opinion, the best design of all the Royale High halos. This halo resembles a gothic chandelier with magenta flames illuminating each perfectly melted candle as they sit atop numerous pink hearts and glowing bats circling the base. The 2021 Halloween Halo perfectly encapsulates what it means to be royally spooky.
2. Dark Fairy Halo Eveningfall (Halloween 2023)
The Dark Fairy Halo from Halloween 2023 is stunning, there's no way around it, but even more than that, I feel like a real effort was made by the creator to satisfy as many players as possible with its design and toggles. The design, which is absolutely gorgeous and gives dark academia royalty in the best way possible, has been created in a way that allows it to be worn on top of the head (in the way most players are used to), and on the back of the head (for those who prefer the more unique and eye-catching look). With an intricately crafted base and a beautiful crescent moon centerpiece, this halo is fit for any spooky-loving player and really managed to bring together the best of both worlds.
3. Lucky Halo 2021
I know I'm going to get some flack for this, but the Lucky Halo 2021 is one of the most elegant looking halos in all of Royale High. Not only does it feature a signifying shamrock and emerald green color, its dangling, teardrop-esque gems add a level of delicacy to the already beautiful halo. You can tell it's the St. Patrick's Day halo just by looking at it, but it doesn't feel overwhelmingly loud at the same time—it goes above and beyond to create the perfect mixture of iconic sophistication.
4. Witching Hour Halo (Halloween 2022)
Another Halloween halo at the top, who would have thought?! It's almost as if you can tell every year which halos the Royale High developers put the most effort into...hmmm...! When it was released, the design of the Witching Hour Halo, or 2022 Halloween Halo, was super different than any other halo the community had ever seen—with it being exceptionally large, spinning, and nearly worn on the player's back—and it was exceptionally polarizing. Some players hated the change, while others, like myself, embraced it! This halo is a midnight blue in color and features various spinning yellow stars, and, because of its uniqueness and overall entrancing aesthetic, I think it deserves a top ten spot.
5. Mermaid Halo 2021
It was really hard to decide between the Mermaid Halo 2021 and the Mermaid Halo 2020, but 2021 pulled it off! Not only is the design of this halo absolutely stunning, it feels powerful. With a circular base made up of golden waves that meet in the middle to form a striking trident, and a string of shining pearls that weaves its way between every perfect curve, this oceanic halo is fit for any elegantly-daring sea king or queen.
6. Spring Halo 2022
Now, this is another controversial choice on this list but I'm standing by it—the Spring Halo 2022 is absolutely gorgeous! This halo features a variety of colorful flowers that sit upon a winding vine and meet in the middle to enlighten a pair of pink, fluttering angel wings. Similar to the Halloween Halo 2022, this halo also strays away from the more stagnant design and actually floats up and down on the wearer's head as the wings flutter—how cool is that?!
7. Mermaid Halo 2020
The Mermaid Halo 2020, as mentioned a few graphs above, is a beautiful crown that definitely deserves a place in the top 10, I just really struggled with deciding where that place is! For now, I've ended on seven—it's better than all of the ones below it, but not quite top five material. That's not to say that it isn't stunning in its own right, however! The clever use of shells to form the base along with the added dripping gems and stars...it's incredible! While the Mermaid Halo 2021 gives off strong king/queen vibes, the 2020 version is truly fit for a royally-perfect and poised prince or princess. I love it!
8. Solarix Halo Tidalglow (Summer 2023)
PGG placing another controversial choice on a top ten list, *gasp*, no way! Honestly though, the Solarix Halo Tidalglow 2023 (what a horrible name) is criminally underrated and I stand by that! When this halo was debuted after the 2023 Spring Halo (which had a more traditional design), many players were massively disappointed by the fact that it was another "back halo," similar to the contentious Witching Hour halo. Others of us, though, thought this halo was absolutely gorgeous, and couldn't wait to get our hands on it. It gives god/goddess vibes in the best way, and would be perfect for any sophisticated and simplistic royal. Also, the fact that it can be used as both an actual accessory and a subtle glowing aura is so cool to me!
9. Halloween Halo 2020
This halo was also pretty hard to place on this list as its overarching pro and con were the same, its unique/non-traditional look, but in the end I decided that it deserves a top ten spot! The Halloween Halo 2020 stepped away from the standard design of the physical crown base, hanging gems, and relatively stagnant effects and traded them all for an exceptionally impressive and immersive show piece. With flickering purple flames, a hovering full moon, and menacing crows that circle the perimeter, this crown truly stands out from the crowd in the best way.
10. Winter Halo 2020
Rounding out my top ten list is the Winter Halo 2020, a stunningly elegant winter-themed halo complete with a base that's made to look like reindeer antlers, a glowing center, snowy particle effects, adorable mini trees, and a beautiful ribbon that ties it all together, no pun intended. While this halo may seem boring or lackluster to some when compared to the other winter halos, I think that it's the perfect mixture of cuteness and elegance for any snowy royalty! Plus, it's really the only winter halo I think deserves a top ten spot, sorry!
