In this day and age, funky hairstyles are simply those that are too different for their respective environments. Gone are the days when they’d really shake things up – that was back when David Bowie first released Space Oddity. But we still get our surprises now and then. When Britney Spears shaved her hair in a fit of self-rebellion, when Miley Cyrus went all short and all blonde and so on… There are a couple of instances here and there that tell us it’s still possible to get down and funk-ay!

Here’s a list of funky hairstyle ideas that’ll help you in the process

Rihanna Short Haircut

Rihanna’s got the right idea here. Her short pixie Haircut is at the back, but the long fringe down the front of her face adds a level of impossible cool. A hairstyling cream ought to maintain the sleekness of the look.

Rita Ora Cool Blonde Hairstyle

Rita Ora’s cool blonde haircut may be similar to Rihanna’s, but it’s certainly more textured and free-flowing! Make it look androgynous by teasing it high, and then applying red lipstick to bring home the glam factor.

Jennifer Lopes Cornrow Hairstyle

Cornrows cover your scalp in geometric patterns, before trailing out in braids if your hair is that long. But Jennifer Lopez knows how to make use of this hairstyle, and her thick, silky locks in a combination that’s almost unbeatable in its sense of style! It’s the perfect party look.

Jennifer Lawrence Short Pixie Cut

Zayn Malik breaks gender barriers with his texted rose-pink highlights, looking every inch a millionaire’s heir in his tucked-in formal shirt and sleek black trousers. You could even wear this with a leather jacket and no one would bat an eye.

Justin Bieber’s at a formal event, but he’s keeping things casual with his high mid fade haircut. Make sure to tease it a little for volume, so that it doesn’t hang too flat and look greasy.

Robert pattinson Spiky Hair

Now you may have thought that spiked hair is for children, or at least faded away with the 80’s. But Robert Pattinson’s proved you wrong with that, with a bit of 2010’s flair: the spiked haircut here is less obvious and seems almost natural. Pair it with dark clothes, and you’ve got yourself a night out on town.

Cool Short Bob Haircut

If a pixie’s too drastic for you, there’s always the ultra functional, asymmetrical bob. The one below is fiery red and a little to the side, but you can always go for the conventional bob designed by Vidal Sassoon – it’s super chic by itself.

Blonde Combover Fade Hair

But if you’re one of the free and unbothered, go for it! Life’s all about living differently, and if  you can do it, why don’t you?
