The term "punk" refers to punk rock, a type of music that originated in England in the 1970s. Punk hair styles were part of the rebellious fashion trends that inspired and fed off of the punk rock movement.
Punk was a reaction against the primmer styles of the 1960s. Punk was "anti-fashion," and designers introduced deconstructive elements like safety pins and obscene slogans for the first time.
Punk style and punk music grew together. Punk rock icons like Billy Idol, Sid Vicious and Siouxsie Sioux inspired countless fans to mimic their hairstyles.
All sorts of natural and unnatural colours are used in punk styles. Punk hair breaks tradition and stands out in a crowd. Extreme colours like black, bleach blond and neons are popular.
Mohawks and partial shaving of the head are popular styles. Shaggier cuts are preferred over sleek cuts.
In addition to gelling hair into mohawks, punk stylers use products to create multiple spikes or tease up their hair.
