Punk is back and there’s no better way to incorporate it into your spring wardrobe than to mess up your hair. I got inspiration from the Jean Paul Gaultier runway (mind you, they were wearing wigs) and asked
celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh for his tips on how to add some funky edge to your typical

Harry’s punk-rock hair tips:
Short hair: A good cut is key in giving short hair a punk edge. Razor cuts are best in achieving this look. Model Agyness Deyn is a perfect example of this.
Medium hair: To give medium hair a
punk edge, less is really more. For those with straight to wavy texture air drying will be best in achieving this style and always remember your hair will look best after being slept on. If you have a bit more curl and body in your hair I would try to wash your hair at night and give it a really good blow dry before going to bed this way when you wake up your hair will have the perfect bed head texture that everyone loves.

Long hair:
The right product means everything when trying to make that long luxurious hair have a punk edge. My recommendation is to use a lot of mousse on towel dried hair roots to ends; I recommend
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Bountiful Body Mousse. Once product is in you can blow dry your hair upside down to get good body. Get the hair to about 50% dry shake it out and put in a loose bun but make sure to secure with hair pins as opposed to a scrunchy. Once completely dry let down shake you head and your style is complete.
Key products: Key products for punk hair would be matte finished pomades, styling mousse (
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Bountiful Body Mousse) because it doesn’t get flaky, Luxurious Volume Lavish Lift Blow Dry Spray, and always hairspray.
Would you wear punk-inspired hair? Or is it too messy for you?
