Popular Punk Hair Style for Women


The history of the punk culture involves the history of rock music that are punk, fashion, dance, visual arts and literature too. Since emerging in the US and UK in the mid- 1970s, the punk subculture has spread around the globe and evolved into a number of different forms. Since hair style falls under fashion it started in that same period too. Those who love rock music, wear the same fashion and hairstyle too, but as time goes by and because of the type of punk music today, punk hairstyle will continue to be the mode among the youth and those who are into punk culture. Rock stars, men and women are the ones who are into this type of hair and their followers/fans follow their hair fashion sense too.

  • Haircuts that are considered for punk generations are usually done with different styles. It comes with fashion statement too that is for younger generation and not all women are suited to the punk style. There are different variations to this type of haircuts. I think that there are different wonderful punk style for usually the youth generation. It is my impression that having a punk style comes with younger age, but some older people are into it too. Punk haircuts are usually for younger women and men who want to look unique, different and to be in among their contemporaries. For the youth generation, becoming part of a group is very important in forming their identity.
  • As we know, there is not just one punk hairstyle. Generally, the wilder, bolder and crazier the hair is, the more punk it will be. Hair is usually asymmetrical and involves colors that could never be natural.
  • Hairstyles that are punk are colorful and disheveled and they will go with different face shape. When talking about punk hairstyle, being wild with your hair is the must and letting it go wildly or letting it down too is considered more punk, the more crazier and unruly the hair is, the more punk it is. One thing good about the punk hairstyle is that you can have the option to style it in your own taste too.
  • For punk or those who would like to follow punk hairstyle color, the length of the hair is very important. For the size or the length of your hair, grow it to the length you like and then you can also color them as you want like blue or pink or any color you choose. There are permanent color but then you may want to change the color as often as you want too. The longer the hair, the more you can style it. Mohawk is the basic punk look, it is equivalent to being punk but not all can have a Mohawk hairstyle. You can also spike your hair using gel etc.
  • Next you should have the attitude and the style that goes with it, not only your hair, some punk genre also wear pink clothings, the more colorful the attire is the better, the clothes should go go with the hair style.
  • For women, hairstyle that are punk are unique and they can style it according to what they like. They can also do it themselves as long as they know how to color their hair. As has been said there are many variations to the size, style and color of punk hairstyle.
  • If you like to have a punk look and instead of going into a parlor, you just need to have a coloring water based color mousse, color stick or color spray. You can color the strands or alternate color if you want. You can also experiment on the color combination too. You can either have a hair to your own length and then color each side, or one strip only, you can cut your hair shorter on the other side too, or spike it up.

Today more than ever, women are into it because they want to be different and have their own style too. There are absolutely no necessary steps on having a punk hairstyle, the thing to put in mind is wear your style, be confident about it and be very creative as well.

Hi Ashley, did you decide alone to cut your hair like that? I think that the hair is part of the personality and all, but not the be all, stay bubbly, remain confident and smile a lot, it helps, if you don't want your hair that way, then schedule another visit to the beauty parlor and ask you mom, they know best. Maita

Ashley on July 02, 2010:

Hello. I'm 14 years old and I have brown\blonde hair. I need help! I just got my hair layered a couple of weeks ago, but it's just not me. So, I was thinking you guys could help me out. Any suggestions will do! Thanks.

Why do I love pink hair? I just do. My favorite color is pink but I don't think I could do it to my own hair. No gutz. But I do love and I am very facinated with the ladies who go for it. loved the hairstyles too! (I am starting to think that something may be wrong with me, because me, of my age should not have pink hair but I am really really tempted to do it)

thanks for the HUB...when people ask why I made my locks pink...I am going to blame it on you and send them to your hub..hheheheh

Hi Rev, oh that afro look, I searched for it, it looked good and I feel like dancing to the tune now hehe, bell bottom pants too, I have a long hair now, and i just style it pony, sometimes wavy, bun etc, but I also like the bobcat look though, might try that this year,

Thanks, Bless you, Maita

prettydarkhorse (author) from US on January 02, 2010:

hi ehern, Afro, that is nice is that the same as the black dude at My Name is Earl, hehe? I like that one too, and ehern I have long hair I don't like to have punk hair hehe, I just love looking at thme not for me though, but I like the second picture here, I just don't like coloring it as it damage the hair too,

And the pointy one hehehe..

how are you? thank you, happy weekend, Maita

prettydarkhorse (author) from US on January 02, 2010:

hey zoltak, that was cool hair, you must have a picture of that? Thanks for your nice comment, I am just amazed at how some youth today manage hair, I like the culture specially the punk, but then there should be some limit also to the coloring done and the frequency, I know if you change color frequently, it will damage the hair too,

and pink, light one is good for women, like your daughter..

hmmmmm, am smiling at the way you describe your punk look before, blue hehe, thanks, Maita

dohn121 from Hudson Valley, New York on January 02, 2010:

Wow, what a great HubMob Hub! I wanted to do one, but I had other obligations...Maybe I can squeeze one out too??? Loved this hub, Maita, especially with the great pics of well-to-do styles for the most part. Many of the styles remind me of the 80's, of Joan Jett and the Bangles and Go-Go's, lol. Thanks, Maita!


ehern33 on January 02, 2010:

RevLady, I too outgrew the long hair and Afro but the long hair stayed with me well into my late 20's, then nature kicked in and a new unwanted style came to be.. BALDNESS! Loved those days!

RevLady from Lantana, Florida on January 02, 2010:

Yep, ehern33 and I remember the long hair and Afro. As a matter of fact I was looking at a picture of mind the other day and smiled at my "Afro" look (it was cute though). The youth hair do not bother me. They will out grow it as back in my day we outgrew the Afro. Each new generation brings in a whole new look.

As always, you have me thinking about things I had long forgotten. Thank you for keeping me "young in heart."

Forever His,

ehern33 on January 02, 2010:

Back in my day we had the long hair and the Afro to make our statements. Some of the current styles scare me.. Watch me run the other way fast.. I have to admit that I have seen some punk stlyes that are pretty good and not that outragous.. Good job here Maita. How would you like to get the pointy hair one? LOL

Ben Zoltak from Lake Mills, Jefferson County, Wisconsin USA on January 02, 2010:

Very cool PDH! I am sharing this article with my daughter, she's gone through the pink, red and purple stage. One time, a long time ago, I had my eyebrow pierced and my nose, I bleached my hair white (like paper white) shaved it all off except for a patch of 7 inch long hair asymmetrically on my right side, I left that long and dyed it bright blue. Good times! Fun article, nicely done.
