What is grunge hairstyle?
The scandalous grunge style has become widespread thanks to the musicians. The main grunge star, Kurt Cobain, vocalist and guitarist of the rock band Nirvana, has brought a deliberately unkempt look into fashion. This was reflected in clothes and hair. Grunge became an outcry and a new subculture that held comfort and convenience above aesthetics and rules.
Grunge haircuts combine light negligence and disregard of fashion, practicality and comfort. Often in the design of the hairstyle, torn strands and thinning are made. Despite its history of protest, grunge is in vogue, and haircuts like this are appropriate for any occasion, lifestyle and clothing style. They are even suitable for a festive look!
Interestingly, grunge adherents opposed themselves to fashion. And where are they now? At the height of fashion. Designers and stylists are so fond of marginal chic that oversized clothes, jeans, plaids, shirts and “unkempt” sweaters have become cult. The same thing happened with grunge haircuts, which, from the marker of a small group of people, went into the public domain.
Who is the grunge haircut for?
Haircuts in grunge style are suitable for a woman of any age: after 40 years, they will give an image of boldness and youthfulness, and for young girls – zest and light chic.
In the case of thin hair, a grunge haircut will add volume to the hair. Asymmetric options are suitable for curvy women and a round face type, as they visually stretch and mask the cheeks. For other face types, grunge-style haircuts are also suitable: due to them, it is easy to adjust the shape, to divert attention from a heavy jaw, a high forehead or, for example, a massive chin.
This also applies to men, because men’s grunge is cut very similarly and can be both long and short.
If your haircut is not zero, then you can already work with your hair, giving it a grunge-style shape. The longer, the more options. On the shortest ones, you can make a slight asymmetry. For girls with short curls, a garcon, and a pixie, and a page, and a textured bob are suitable, and for men – any chaotically laid version of a semi-box or a modern Caesar.
For medium lengths, there are many stylish grungy haircuts available. For example, bob-bob or shaggy, asymmetrical bob on a leg, sesson, or any torn haircuts.
For long hair, the effect of a slight mess will turn out in several ways: firstly, you can make any torn haircut, cascade or ladder; second, try textured options like shaggy. A shaved temple, asymmetrical messy bangs, or blond with dark roots will be a great addition to any of these haircuts.
Women’s fashion options for the execution of hairstyles in the style of grunge
Disheveled but stylish. These are the hairstyles we have collected for you in this selection. Check out which trendy grunge hairstyles you should try on your next visit to the salon.
Bob in grunge style
A torn bob will adorn a woman of any age, and with a careless and disheveled styling, it will turn you into a real rock star. The ragged ends provide a creative clutter effect, while the cropped back of the head maximizes volume.
Surfer girl-style curls can look very brutal if you make the styling voluminous and set the strands in a chaotic direction. No clear lines! If desired, you can sling your hair to one side. Such a grunge hairstyle will look as impressive as possible with dark lipstick and a choker, and nude makeup will soften the image.
An asymmetric haircut looks equally good with curls and straight. Tousled strands at the crown will add charm, you can add color coloring.
Cascade with ombre or shatush
Loose straight or curled curls will look spectacular in several shades or with a smooth stretch of color. This coloring will brighten any grunge haircut.
Shaggy with straight bangs
Shaggy is an absolute chaos of torn strands and a voluminous crown, and this mess is simply beautiful when performed by a skilled craftsman. This haircut looks good both on medium length and on girls with long curls.
The classic sesson has smooth transitions and lines, creating a round outline. What if you add torn strands and colored dye here? Any highlighting will do. A grunge Sasson doesn’t have to be perfect, and you don’t have to style it hair to hair.
How to make a men’s hairstyle in grunge style: execution technology
The main signs of a classic grunge haircut are the absence of parting and the effect of wet hair. Depending on the length, you can find very curious male options. We share ideas – and technique!
For a masculine and stylish grunge hairstyle, shave off your temple and style your hair to one side. Or you can shave both temples at once. The technology is simple: decide on the area, apply foam or soap solution, pull back the skin and walk the machine. You can also use an electric shaver, which is even easier and more convenient.
For short and medium length hair, it makes sense to try a cascade. The upper hairs on the crown are fixed, the occipital area is cut off first. In this area, the strands will be the longest. The next area for cutting is separated from the temporal zone (it will be slightly shorter), then the rest of the strands are cut in the same way – in layers. Finally, we shape the bangs. Read more about this haircut on the SalonSecret pages.
In the temporal zone, a strand is separated and cut at an angle so that the curl has an acute angle. A vertical parting is done, then the temples are edged. The hair at the back of the head is cut in turn, the length of the hair should increase towards the crown. With the help of scissors, a sharp transition between the short nape and the long crown is eliminated. Hair from the crown is laid towards the forehead, the edging is formed in the form of an acute angle.
A horizontal parting is made (from ear to ear) and two vertical partings – at the temples. On the line of the forehead, a strand is cut at a right angle, the entire parietal zone is processed for its length. In the temporal zone, by analogy, a control section is made, and the entire area is equated to it. A smooth transition is made between the strands in different parts of the head. From the upper part of the back of the head to the middle, the hair is cut in the same length with an oblique cut. From the middle of the occipital zone, the length will decrease, so this area is easier to machine with a machine. Style your hair to the front or to the side.
