There are many types of punk short hairstyles that can easily be created. Punk hairstyles tend to be labeled as wild and outrageous as a punk style is a way to make a statement. There are three aspects to the hairstyle: the wild colors, funky style and startling cuts. To get a real punk hairstyle you need to understand how these parts are used in a punk hairstyle. For punk short hairstyles you need to incorporate an unusual hair color such as fluorescent pink, green or blue. You can also only color sections of your hair or your whole head. It is possible to do color stripes, color the tips of your hair or just the bangs. The color needs to stand out so if you have very dark hair then platinum blond tips are a good choice.
The main factor when getting a punk cut is that it should not be any cut that is considered mainstream. This can usually be overcome by having unusual configurations such as long shaggy hair on top and a short buzz cut on the bottom. Asymmetrical cuts also work. It is also very typical to have words shaved into your head. The overall style is what makes your hairstyle a punk hairstyle though the color and cut influence this style. The most well known hair is the Mohawk. The flyaway is another traditional style, think of rock stars from the 70s and 80s. Other factors to incorporate in the hairstyle include spikes, unexpected parts, loops and braids.
To be punk is to be rebellious so there are no fixed rules when it comes to creating a style. One way to get the look is to add some highlights. Pinks, fuchsias and reds can complement the tones of your hair and add definition to your hairstyle. High contrast shades usually create the most impact so blond paired with black or red will be a dynamic statement. Neon shades stand out from the crowd and for the less brave you may consider highlighting the tips of the hair or single sections for a more subtle approach. With short hair there is a huge amount of scope for an edgy look. Shaved hair underneath with a Mohawk on top is a classic punk look and often patterns or words can be styled into the shaved section to make a statement.
A popular and edgy look for fans of punk combines accessories such as braids, spikes and leather with the cut. This can help to personalize the look and make it more original. If hair is very short then introducing some accessories allows you some variety to be creative with. One thing to keep in mind is that the harsh chemicals used in dyes such as peroxide can be tough on your hair, so you may want to consider using semi-permanent or temporary colors. This also allows you to experiment with a range of options for your punk short hairstyles.
