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.
Different factors play a role in determining which style would suit you best. Whether you opt for pixie, shaggy, bob, pageboy or any other short style it is important to take the texture of your hair, shape of your face and lifestyle into consideration. Knowing what type of face you have can make choosing a flattering short hairstyle much easier. By using a photo where you look straight at the camera and cutting out your face, you can quite easily determine the shape. If you are one of those lucky individuals with an oval face, you can wear anything from pixie to sleek with a center parting. Hair swept back from the face will enhance and bring out your features. Extra heavy bangs that cover your features should be avoided.
