No matter what hairstyle you choose, it is important for the hairstyle to not only fit your facial shape and skin tone, but it must fit your personality too. In spite of the fact that hair grows out, you have to be comfortable with the style from the beginning. Most of us do not have the luxury of calling our employer and saying "I'm not coming to work for the next few weeks because I don't like my new haircut." Probably more than any other hairstyle, short hair takes courage because if you don't like it, other than a wig, there is nothing you can do about it. You must be patient and wait for Mother Nature to change the length.
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.
