Are you tired of sporting a plain, boring haircut? Do you want to find a way to completely change up your look? If so, you may want to consider going a bit punk with your hairstyle. There are a number of different looks that you can experiment with, all of which are far from boring. If you really want to up the “wow” factor, give one of these Popular Punk Hairstyles 2017 a try:
Similar to a traditional mohawk, fauxhawks can instantly add street cred to your look. The only difference between a fauxhawk and a mohawk is that with the faux version the sides of your head aren’t shaved. Instead, the hair on the sides is usually just slicked back against your head or braided tightly so that it hugs your scalp, while the center strip of hair is either ratted or spiked to create the look of a mohawk. This can be a fantastic way to try out the look of a mohawk without the commitment of shaving your sides. Many people start out with a fauxhawk and eventually graduate to a mohawk if they like the look enough to make a long-term commitment to it.
Oftentimes the only difference between a traditional hairstyle and a punk hairstyle is the color of the hair. Adding bright hues such as red, orange, green, blue or pink to your hair can instantly transform it into a punk look. Best of all, most bright dyes like these are temporary, which means that you can continually play around with different colors if you want to try out different looks.
There is one caveat, however: the dyes only work on blonde hair. That means that if you have dark hair you will have to bleach it to get it light enough for the colors to show up. Alternatively, you could also look into using clip-in hair extensions to add colorful streaks to your hair without any long-term commitment.
Short on the Sides, Long On Top
Short hairstyles are innately punk, to begin with. However, if you leave the top of your hair a little bit longer than usual, while at the same time cutting the sides and back extremely short, you can instantly up the punk factor. Then all you need to do is dye it a non-traditional color such as platinum blonde, soft pink or black and spike it up using pomade or hair sculpting wax. Try directing the hair forward toward your face from the crown of your head to create an edgy look.
Trying out popular punk hairstyles 2017 can be a lot of fun. The best part is that there are plenty of ways to experiment with different punk looks without having to get an extreme cut. Just by styling your hair in a different or unusual way, you can instantly transform it from traditional into cutting-edge.
