Funky Hairstyles

Kashmira Lad
Had your fill of inverted bobs, blunt fringes, and shaggy side-flops? Want to get a radically different hairstyle? You can give yourself a new look by changing your hairstyle into a funky one. Just remember a thing- it isn't for the light-hearted people.

Your Celeb Doppelgängers

For the funkiest of looks, you could always turn to a celeb for inspiration. Your best bets?

Rihanna, Mylie Cyrus, Willow Smith, Adam Lambert, David Beckham, and the ever-reliable Lady Gaga.
Are you known in your friend circle as the person who never experiments with his/her hair? A funky, out-of-the-world hairstyle may just be what you need to break out of that image.
The level of funkiness you opt for can range from I'm-just-testing-the-waters to I'm-funky-and-I-know-it. Take your pick from these over-the-top, outrageous, yet sportable hairstyles and break away.
Statutory Warning: These hairstyles are not for the faint-hearted. They may result in open-mouthed finger pointing and some level of ridicule. Attempt them only if you are sure that you cannot and will not be bothered by these reactions.

For the Trendsetting Woman

When it comes to matters of appearance, women, we think, have it slightly easier. We are spoiled for choice. There is always scope to experiment with our look, especially our hair. Yes, even when we have decided that we are never going to cut our locks.
Shocking your friends and family will be horribly easy with these out-there looks. Unleash your wild side, look beyond the obvious, have some fun, and go as crazy as you can with these dos for your hair.

The Long of it ...

For the Rapunzels of the world who would love to live life a little bit on the edge, with their shiny, long hair for company, there are many styles you could choose from. Some are messy, some over-the-top, some up the glam quotient, but they are all definitely going to make you stand out in the crowd.

... and the Short, too

For those lovely ladies who don't give two hoots about length, there are some great styles to try out. From a pixie cut with a difference to going bonkers with color, to even just giving an illusion of length with extensions, there is a lot that you can do when you want to be the cynosure of all eyes. Here are our top picks.

For the Guy who Experiments

When you think about what a guy can do differently with his hair, there isn't much that comes to mind. Probably because we are used to a certain image, a certain look. But we change that perception. Here are some stereotype-shattering, not-climbing-on-the-bandwagon looks that may be exactly what a man unafraid of change is looking for.
Like we said earlier, none of these hairstyles are for the faint-hearted. It involves daredevilry of the mind to convince oneself to get a hairstyle that is as funky as these are.
If you are one of those forward-thinkers who is not bothered by the incredulous (read: admirable) glances that you are getting, then one of these styles may be just what you are looking for.
