Fantasy Hairstyle Ideas
Don't get stuck in a rut--show off your hair's potential with a fantasy hairstyle. (mohawk hair collage image by Tamara Kulikova from

Your hair is your crowning glory, but if you have a hectic lifestyle, it's easy to fall into a rut and choose styles for their manageability rather than their imagination. If you have a special event, however, why not leave the everyday you behind and stun family and friends with a fantasy hairstyle? Fantasy hair is a deliberate statement; it makes you stand out from the crowd and can give you an entirely new identity for the evening. Who knows--if you like it enough, the look could become permanent.

Gothic Hair

Gothic hair is big and black, so have plenty of hairspray and black hair dye available. As there are so many gothic styles, hair website Chic Hair Styles points out that it's important to choose your look before you start. Typical gothic looks include vampire, romantic, cyber doll, and rock. If you're going to go "Goth," then, according to site Latest Hairstyles, the predominant colour should be black. However, if black really doesn't suit you, then shades of bright red or purple are also acceptable. On top of this basecolor, you could add large contrasting highlights of red (if the base is black) or the reverse. The two predominant shapes for Goth hair are either long and straight or high and backcombed, allowing the hair to float around the face. Goth hair is great if you want to stand out at a party or a rock concert.


According to the website My Emo Hairstyles, there is no true definition of "Emo" hair, as it's an expression of individuality; therefore, the style will vary, depending on the person wearing it. In general, however, the Emo is a unisex hairstyle in which the hair is cut asymmetrically, usually with a large bouffant look around the jawline and some wispy strands of hair below. Many people sporting the Emo dye their hair black for a more alternative look. As the Emo look is so individualistic, My Emo Hairstyles recommends grabbing some hair dye and scissors and doing your Emo yourself. If this sounds a little too risky, many contemporary hair salons will cut an Emo for you. However, be warned: This hairstyle requires a lot of work to get that cute, messed-up look.


The Mohawk is characterised by a tuft of spiky hair at the top of the head, with no or very little hair at the sides. It is a strong look and makes for some excellent fantasy hairstyles. According to website Beauty and the Bath, you no longer need to buzzcut the sides of your head to sport a Mohawk. Pulling the side parts of your hair around the back of your head in a braid and spiking the hair in the centre with gel makes an effective Mohawk look--and it's temporary. For a stronger look, why not distinguish the two sections of hair with two different colours, perhaps black for the Mohawk and blonde for the sides.
