Rock star hair is edgy and fun to wear. Female rockers like to let their personality show, and so can you with one of these fabulous styles. Work with your natural hair texture to capture the best look for your personally. Whatever look you choose, be sure to wear it with rock star sass and attitude.
Rock Star Shags
Shags are a versatile look. The cut includes lots of choppy layers. It can be worn in a short shag or in a longer version. The weight of the look is mostly on the top of the head, reminiscent of female ’80s rockers. This is an easy look to style into many different looks. Use a flat iron for a smooth rocker style. Gel and slick back the hair, or just blow dry for a wild look. Use a hair paste to separate and define different layers. A shag can also be scrunched with mousse for a curly look.
Another version of the shag is closer to a pixie look. Jagged edges and short layers make a dramatic effect. Straightening will create an even more angular look. Teasing under the top layers can cause the rock star shag to become almost mullet-like and very rock star.
Rock Star Color
Color your hair for a dramatic rock star look. A shaggy head full of hot pink and black hair is undeniably rock star. Solid black hair is a traditional rock star look, as is extreme bleach blond. Create interesting effects with chunky streaks of color to emphasis your cut of choice. Make a peek-a-boo look with one color underneath that can only be seen when you move your head or pull up a layer with clips or gel.
Rock Star Bump
Bump your hair for a glamorous rock star look. It has a retro feel but is definitely not for the timid. Start with unwashed hair for the best results; the natural oils will help hold the tease. Separate into sections, horizontally across your head. Hold one section up at a time and spray it front and back with hairspray, and then backcomb the section to give it body.
Once the top of your head has enough teased hair to create the height of the bump that you want, gather and press forward. You can hold the look in place with a clip or bobby pins. Brush the very front into a smooth layer to cover the teased bump, and then spray to hold it all in place. The sides are generally very smooth and tight to the face. You can sweep your bangs to the side and clip or style them as usual.
