#20: Wild Thang Hairstyle with Shaved Sides for Punks

The wild thing hairstyle for punks is a disconnected haircut with shaved sides. It was created by independent stylist Ruth Phillips of Youngstown, OH. “It features a deep violet against the yellow, and of course, a hand-painted leopard pattern!”

For women considering punk haircuts, Phillips says to remember that this print can easily be cut out after your sides grow a bit to leave a fairly low commitment color.

“Conversely, if it’s something you’d like to keep long term, you will need to sit and have your color done and the pattern painted back on at each haircut, or possibly every other, depending on how much of the pattern is cut out,” she adds.

#23: Pompadour Mohawk Punk Hairstyle

A pompadour mohawk was created by stylist Lindsay Wolf of Portland, OR. “The punk style features lots of height built up from the front all the way to the nape of the neck, with each side buzzed,” explains Wolf.

If you’re considering punk hair styles like this, it’s ideal for women with a strong bone structure and an oval face shape. “This punk hairstyle requires time for styling and a few amazing products, so it’s definitely not a low maintenance style,” she adds.

For styling, Wolf says to try Oribe Volumista Mist for volume. “Spray from your roots to the ends prior to blow drying with a small to medium round brush. Follow up with Oribe Superfine Strong Hairspray to lock in hold, then lightly mist with Oribe Shine Reflecting Spray for a glossy, glass-like finish. Voíla!”

#27: Deathhawk Hairstyle for Punk Girls

Opt for a teased punk mohawk called “Deathhawk” hairstyle for punk girls. It was handcrafted by salon owner and stylist Crystal Terror of San Antonio, TX. “Punk hairstyles for long hair like this, aren’t just a fashion statement, they’re super punk rock.”

“Use Joico Cobalt/Peacock Green semi-permanent color and Pravana Neon Greens,” explains Terror. “For the shaved side, use a Wahls peanut trimmer. As for the style, it was backcombed and teased. The whole hawk was sprayed with Bedhead Masterpieces. Ask your stylist about hair gel that’s just as effective a for long-lasting hold.”

Women with medium to coarse textured hair are the easiest to tease into a wider mohawk style like the Deathhawk. It’s not a good idea to style fine/thinning hair like this. Most face shapes work with this style, too.

#28: Blonde Punk With Style on Top

A blonde cut could be described as punk with style, the grungy answer to a precision haircut. It’s got some triangular shape with very choppy short layers. It looks great on naturally straight hair.

Try top products like Lanza’s Texture Spray, Puff Me Volumizing Powder, or even Kevin Murphy’s Rough.Rider, which are perfect for grunge hair. You really need a dryer feeling, gritty product to get that hair to stand up and to provide the broken up texture in the ends.

A short punk hairstyle works great on hair types between straight and wavy. You could go for it curly though! Depending on how you push this haircut around makes it more punk or more polished.
