Are you looking for some badass, rock ‘n’ roll, punk hairstyles? We have them right here. Check this short list out and make your choice!
A punk hairstyle isn’t just about hair, actually. It’s the symbol of the subculture — just like punk rock, individual liberty, leather jackets and piercings. It’s something bigger than just a hairstyle — but you probably already know it. Right?
But well, nowadays you don’t have to be a true punk to have one of these amazing punk hair cuts. Like, you don’t have to be a Viking to have a Viking hairstyle, you don’t have to be one of those punks to have a punk hairstyle — it’s simple as that.
So, these haircuts would work well even if you are just looking for a cut that will refresh your look — but there is one little problem. There are too many haircuts to choose from, so it’s quite easy to get confused.
Well, we are here to solve this problem! Here you will find 20 amazing punk haircuts that would suit all types of faces and all types of hair. We’ve tried to collect the best cuts, which means we’ve included the trendiest and most interesting hairstyles only. No outdated stuff like mullets — yeah, punks loved them in the 1970s, but come on, now we need something fresher than that!
Check this list below and you’ll get it. Fresh, trendy, fashionable punk haircuts are waiting for you!
Two short edgy punk rock hair styles for guys
What about an edgy hairstyle? Such cuts are incredibly popular now, they work great with short hair, and they look fine on guys — so what’s the problem?
The first thing you have to know here is that, well, edgy hair style is one of the first signs that would help you to know that a man in front of you is a true punk. Such hairstyles express the idea, that’s what we’re trying to say.
So, the first hairstyle here is a brother of a mohawk — your short or medium hair would work perfect here. It’s a mohawk with an edgy top and shaved sides, so the styling is much easier here. We also like that it looks a little bit like that old classic Joe Strummer mohawk with its shaved sides.
You can edit it in lots of different ways — like, make a real punk hair color. Dye your hair blue! Is it punk enough now?
The second hairstyle here is quite classic. It’s a mohawk with striped sides, and it looks great! It’s like an effort to make a traditional mohawk more trendy and more “punk”. Well, look at this edgy hair and at these amazing sides — we are sure you’ll agree that it’s worth trying.
Some cool male punk hairstyles for long hair
If you have thick, long hair, our congratulations! Here you’ll find several hairstyles that look great with such type of hair. The first one is called a long mohawk, and it’s one of those classic punk rocker hairstyles you’ve probably seen lots of times.
It’s more like a wide and long mohawk than just a long one. The main idea of this hairstyle is the different lengths of hair — it makes this mohawk much bolder than all the other mohawks. Well, except the spike mohawks, of course. That guys are bold as hell.
While this mohawk is very bold, our second hairstyle is extremely simple. Basically, the only thing you need here is your long hair — and it must be fine enough, of course.
This hairstyle simply presents long hair as it is, and all you have to do is let it fall freely. If it’s black, it’s perfect — let your black, thick and very long hair down and you’ll look like a real punk!
Need a great female asymmetrical punk pixie cut?
When you have an asymmetrical cut, there is no left-right symmetry which makes one side look longer than the other side. Such haircuts look amazing on short hair, and it makes sense that short hair works well with pixie cut. What if we combine asymmetrical haircuts and pixie cuts?
Well, the result will be very interesting, that’s what we know. It’s one of those alternative hairstyles that are not too punky — we’d better say it’s a post-punk haircut for those who are looking for something trending this year. It’s a very confident haircut, if we may say so.
The second asymmetrical hairstyle is a long layered cut with side bangs — it’s a “half-punk” cut because it may seem a little bit formal from one side, but when you see the shaved side, well, it’s totally punk. Perfect for short and medium hair, but not the best choice for women with long hair — just like all pixies, basically.
What about two amazing punk rock hairstyles for women?
If you haven’t grown long hair yet, don’t worry about it — short and medium hair is great, too! And, what’s even more important, such hair length works well when it comes to the punk rock hairstyles.
Well, the first hairstyle is a mullet. Yes, we’ve said before that there would be no outdated mullets on this list, but come on! Just take a look at the first picture and you’ll understand that it’s definitely NOT one of those hairstyles you can call “outdated”. It’s a disconnected mullet — and despite it was certainly influenced by the popular 80s punk hair styles, it has a very modern and punky look.
To make it, you’ll need to take care of the texture. Buy a good texturizing spray, cream or paste.
What do we like about this hairstyle is that it’s very playful and fashionable. And it seems like it will always be trendy — so if you wanna stop worrying about whether your style is trending or not, well, you should pay some attention to it.
The second hairstyles are shaggy and short. “Shaggy” means that there are more layers on the top then on the bottom, and such hairstyles often look quite effortless. Well, it’s not a problem for a punk, right?
Here you’ll see two shaggy haircuts both for short and for medium hair length. These hairstyles are perfect for those who love freedom — but at the same time, they are very girly. Please, note that they are very textured, so you’ll need a texturizing spray and a smoothing serum to make them.
The best punk haircuts for your medium length hair
Medium length is extremely popular among men and women. That’s why we have some good news — here we’ll talk about both mens and womens medium haircuts!
So, what we recommend for a guy with medium length hair is a hard-part hairstyle. It’s a great alternative to a mohawk — but it’s as punk as a mohawk, so don’t worry about it. Shaved sides look very trendy and it doesn’t seem like such sides will go out of trend in the next years.
If you’re a woman and you are looking for a punk haircut for your medium hair, well, we have something for you, too! It’s a pompadour with an undercut, and it’s just perfect for medium hair.
Check this punk mohawk out. Timeless classic
How to be a punk? Begin with a mohawk! It’s a classic haircut that will forever be synonymous with the word “punk” — and what we like about it is that there are hundreds of different mohawk types. Some of them are perfect for women, some would work better for men. Some need long hair, some work well with short hair — that’s why we just couldn’t ignore mohawks. They are great.
We’ll start with a messy mohawk — it’s a very simple, yet 100% punk hairstyle. Decades ago, the punks wanted to draw attention to their culture and to themselves with this haircuts — and even now, in the 21st century, such mohawks still cope with this task.

A spiky mohawk would work great here. It’s not too easy to make it, but you won’t need lots of complex accessories — only a good styling gel (but you’ll need it for all the spiky hairstyles). Perfect for short, medium and even for long length hair, and it doesn’t even matter whether it’s an undercut or shaved head. Such a mohawk will look great in all these cases. Different colors are welcome, too!
Thin spiky faux hawks are just amazing. You’ll need a gel here, too, but that’s all. Look at the pictures below — we are sure you’ll love such a faux hawk!
Check these death hawk hair ideas for punk girls
