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. Generally punk hairstyles require a huge amount of styling products. This causes more hair damage so deep conditioning treatments will be necessary to keep your hair healthy. If you are experimenting before finding your punk hairstyle then you should use temporary dies that will wash out and cause less damage to your hair.
Other thing that you have to determine is whether the chosen hairstyle is adequate to your hair type. Every different type of hair has different flow and fall. Make sure that these elements are mixed well for your hairstyle. Making appropriate short hairstyles is a sum of form, texture and hair products. Once your hair is short, the hair products will become your best friends because they will allow you to change the "feel" of the haircut. The hair grows at different speed and needs a regular cut to be maintained in perfect condition. Prepare for regular visits to the beauty salon and for more work and different skills to maintain your hair in perfect condition. The short hairstyles are not a license to be free of care. Be sure that you and your stylist are on the same wavelength.
