Indie hairstyles are most popular among musicians and people with passion for the creative; however, they are gaining popularity due to their unique appearance and easy maintenance. Like a cross between natural, geeky and punk, the indie style is characterised by looking organic and do-it-yourself, yet edgy. Short and with a few choppy layers, the haircuts are usually tousled and asymmetrical in shape. Indie haircuts tend to be fairly androgynous and look cool on both guys and girls.

  1. 1

    Choose pictures of indie hairstyles that you like and decide what you like about them. The internet and music magazines are good resources for inspiration.

  2. 2

    Go to a hairstylist familiar with the indie look and present the pictures and ideas you have for your cut.

  3. 3

    Dye your hair completely to a dark or natural-looking shade. Browns are very popular. Avoid bright colours and highlights.

  4. 4

    Don't wash your hair every day so that it has some natural texture and looks a little unkempt.

  5. 5

    Let your hair air dry after you wash it instead of blow drying it.

  6. 6

    Use as little styling product as you can, and stay away from gels and hairsprays that make your hair stiff or hard.
