Your top 3 rockstar styles of the moment
12 February 2019
Hey Rock Star! Looking for an amazing new hairdo to take you from the festive season into the new year? Perhaps you plan to rock race day at Cape Town’s Sun Met, or parade your own punk rock look at the Cape Town Carnival?
Punk rock hairstyles are where it’s at! Edgy yet glamorous and oh so on-trend, rock star hair is exactly what you need if you want to turn heads this summer.
We’ve rounded up our 3 favourite looks that will bring out your inner rock ’n roll goddess, and are also pretty effortless to maintain. Bonus!
The shaved tattoo
Whether you’re looking for rock star hairstyles for long hair, short hair, or somewhere in between, the shaved side cut has been a hot hairstyle for a while now. The trend is still going strong, and the contrasting texture of layered length and short sides is just gorgeous.
Update the look with graphic patterns razored into the shaved pieces. If you’re feeling really adventurous, ask your stylist to bleach and then add mind-blowing colour to your ‘tattoos’. Short hair is really forgiving when it comes to bleach damage so you can have fun with colour without any guilt.
If you’re nervous about shaving your hair, opt for side corn rows instead. You’ll achieve the layered effect and patterned texture, without the commitment of using a razor.
The shag is a superb cut for curly-haired girls as it is meant to look unkempt (think bed hair) and is super-easy to maintain.
Retro 80s rock hair is making a comeback with the shag – medium-to-long messy locks with lots of layers. The shag should be textured on top with loose layers to thin out the length of your hair. This is a superb cut for curly haired girls as it is meant to look unkempt (think bed hair) and is super-easy to maintain.
The buzz cut
Warning… this one is not for the faint of heart, but if you ooze confidence, have superb bone structure and want to try something completely different, then take the plunge and go super-short. Shaving all your hair off is freeing in so many ways. It’s effortlessly easy to style - possibly the only true ‘wash and go’ hairdo. Plus, as with the shaved side cut, you are less likely to do permanent damage by using bleach and bright fashion colour.
Rock hairstyle pointers
Rock ’n roll hair is all about texture, freedom and, of course, fun. Ask your stylist for lots of layers, movement and vivid colour… and above all, a hairstyle that reflects your personality so you can rock on like the rock star you are!
