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.
Another "plus" about the new short hairstyles is that they can easily be "lengthened" temporarily by the addition of weaves, braids, and hairpieces. It's easy to change your hip 2004 hairstyle into retro 80's hair style with just a few hair products...and then change back to your regular short hairstyle. To help your stylist select one of the new short hairstyles that would be best for you, be sure to bring any photo of the 2004 hairstyle that you've seen that "captures" what you'd like to achieve. And here's a word of advice: don't get stuck on any one hairstyle. Short hairstyles, medium hairstyle, and long hairstyle all have a "time and place."
