Best alt hairstyles on TikTok right now

‘I’m green, baby,’

TikTok user @punkyfuquer dyes over his long hair with a vivid green, and styles into an amazing mohawk. A mohawk is a hairstyle with a narrow center strip of usually upright hair and the sides of the head shaved. The mohawk takes its name from the people of the Mohawk nation, an indigenous people of North America who originally inhabited the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York. Punk subcultures have adopted this hairstyle, and that’s why you’re likely to see a punk with a mohawk.

‘It’s mullet time’

Love them or hate them, mullets were most popular in the 80’s, but as trends move on they always come back about 20 years later. If you’ve been on TikTok you will have seen mullets make a MASSIVE comeback last year and this year, especially among the LGBT community, and alt people alike. @annawearden shows off her new mullet in this TikTok.

‘Mind your eye,’

Liberty spikes. There’s no denying Rico Nasty brought them back. To get this look, you need a LOT of hairspray. The hairstyle, now associated with the punk subculture, is so named because of the resemblance to the crown worn by the Statue of Liberty. Here’s @discokink showing you can include a fringe too!

‘Half up half down,’

@yarasworld1 shows in her hair transformation video her new hairstyle in which she dyes it purple and black split dye, resembling a Monster High doll. She compliments this by adding two half up ponytails and a fringe. This is a great vampy look; black hair with purple and pink  streaks is worn by e-girls and gothic girls alike, it’s been a massive trend and looks amazing every time.

‘Shaved head and funky patterns,’

This look has been massively popular, the trend has been slowly growing since 2015. Using the buzzcut as a canvas and you can paint any design on with hair dye. Popular styles are smiley faces, flames, hearts and psychedelic patterns. @chiken.chowmein experiments by using a neon green base and with a black pattern streaking through the whole head.

‘Choppy layered bob,’

Think Alice Cullen. This short bob is such a cute 90’s vibe, making every outfit look better. @hippieg0thgf kills this look by giving themself a choppy layered bob, the hair flicking out is adorable.
