If you’ve gotten bored with your usual hairstyle and are hunting to get creative or to try a new cut and tint, then read on for punk hair inspiration direct from the A-listers. From Miley’s prickly hair, Gwen’s hairstyle, to Anabella’s Mohican cut, and Alicia Keys, curly Mohawk, give these punk rock hairstyles a chance!
1. Prickly and Angular
Be a punk rock beauty like pop star Miley Cyrus, wearing short blond curls that are shrill, spiky and graceful. When the punk princess hit the red carpet at the Costume Institute’s gala in 2018, she blazed a new trend for androgynous glamor, yet looked chic. Flawless make-up, classic red pout and bleached plants had never looked so punk.
2. Bicolor fauxhawk
Jennifer Lopez exhibited her punk style at a costume gala exhibition in New York City and presented her two-tone fauxhawk. Rewarding the beloved mohawk, Jlo’s hair was pulled up with short, subtle waves that were attached to the back and voluminous at the top.
3. Mohican cut
Anabella pushed her version of the short punk hairstyle a little further, with shaved sides and a pair of tiny pigtails hidden in her hair. An anabella spinning a wheel hairstyle that caused some head-turning rounded it off with almost no makeup look and shiny orange pout for a hefty effect.
Singer Pink’s nonchalant platinum blonde Pompadour is wild but chic. The rock star with its stunning hairstyle proves that short hair does not have to be stale or boring. To get the punk look, start with the backcoming of your hair from side to side and pump the top part with volume spray. Once you’re done, create a swirl by twisting your hair on one side and adding extra hairspray.
5. Curly Mohawk
Alicia Keys looks very hot with her voluminous, curly mohawk and her natural texture. The Fallin singer rocks her curly hair by wearing it in dirty waves and shaved sides. To replicate strong, voluminous waves like Alicias, apply a good amount of volume enhancing hair styling gel, followed by a texture spray to enhance your natural fluff. Now work the gel into the hair and blow dry.
6. Slicked back Pompadour
If a grim and fun look is what you need, then Lupita Nyongo’s pruned Pompadour is perfect for the occasion without the shaved sides. To get this look, collect your short hair from the back and gel it, leaving the shaved, upper section of the hair. Take a brush and tease the hair on the back, and use lots of hairspray to keep it shiny and springy.
7. Heaven High Mohawk
Punk Dominique Tipper wore a sky-high Mohawk and made a bold statement we’re looking for. We love her pairing her strict mohawk with a deep pink dress, minimal make-up, and her dark, red pout. Show theft.
8. Shaggy Bob
If you believe in anything ragged and punk, then you’ll absolutely love this hairstyle rocked by Twilight star Kristen Stewart. The actress wears a shaggy bob with tons of layers that fall on her face and give her hair an obvious spunk. Perfect for the girls’ night, a dinner party or a red carpet event, the hairstyle lasts no more than ten minutes! This is a winner for us.
A glamorous evening look, here singer Gwen Stefani sang her fringes in a charming cowl. To restore this look, collect your hair from the front and tease it on the crown. Now use a light hair spray to keep your hair brash and spunky. For a daring change, dye your hair blonde as it adds texture and depth to the edgy hairstyle.
10. Side-swept pompadour
Who could forget it when Kelly Osbourne appeared on the NBC Universal Cable Entertainment Upfronts lashing out at Purple Pompadour? Kelly Osbourne’s funky alternative to the basic pompadour is worthy of all sorts of angles, effort and time. Kelly, a great hairstyle for thin and straight hair, with its side-lined pompadour, sheen, length, purple color and flips, matched her refined make-up and berry lipstick to subtract that fun look.
