Unisex Punk Short Hairstyles

Punk short hairstyles are all about rebellion and creativity. Because of this flexibility, there are many looks that are great for both men and women. Really, all you have to do is take the time to experiment with your hair's texture, layers and color and you are good to go. After all, there are no rules when it comes to punk rock looks. The following are some classic unisex short punk hairstyles.

Layers
A popular short punk hairstyle to try is the layered look. Here, hair is cut in irregular layers so as to take on a messy look. Layers are a great way to add texture to one's hair, and they look especially vibrant when paired with bright-colored highlights in fun colors like blue or red. The ends of the hair tend to be kept jagged with this style. This unisex look is one that can highlight a person's cheekbones and facial structure, especially when coupled with fun bangs layered so they fall across the face.

Spikes
A fun unisex short punk look is to go for the spiked look. To achieve this, hair is twisted with gel to form little spikes all around the head. To some, it may look as if this hairstyle was inspired by a hedgehog. If you want to try this look, take the time to play with the tips of your spike. Think about adding color to this style to make a quick and instant impact-can color the tips to make the look that much more unique.  

Mohawks
You really can't go wrong with Mohawks. This is a classic unisex punk look that is easy to style and looks great on everyone. All you have to do is shave or cut the sides of your hair and spike up the middle sections of hair. The actual Mohawk can be dyed different colors, styled straight up, made into spikes, grown long or kept short and spiky.

Faux Hawk
The faux hawk is fast becoming another popular unisex punk short hairstyle. Here, you do not have to cut or shave the sides of the hair. Instead, you simply gather the middle sections of your hair and spike them up using gel, hair spray or other styling products.
