Indie Hairstyles

Are you looking to get a bit edgy and really express yourself through your hair? There are all sorts of interesting and fun hairstyles to try that will pair great with a bold pair of eyeglasses and funky wardrobe. All you have to do is be willing to experiment!

You don’t have to do anything drastic with your hair in order to stand out because it’s all really about how you wear it (and what you wear with it!).

Check out below for three indie hairstyles that you can rock any day of the week!

If you want tousled and effortless hair that you don’t have to do a thing with in the morning, a layered hairstyle with side bangs is the ultimate indie look! Ask your hair stylist to really work in those layers throughout and use a little bit of product to create more of a “piecey” look.

Long side swept bangs that slightly cover your eyes complete this easy and carefree indie hairstyle. For hold that doesn’t weigh down bangs try Kerastase Oleo-Relax for thick hair, Redken Power Tame 16 for coarse hair, or Fekkai Glossing Cream for regular hair. If oiliness is a problem, a little dry shampoo, like this one by Suave, will keep bangs looking great all day.

Blunt bangs are the go to indie look! For thick hair, this vintage-inspired wavy look with curled under bangs is the perfect indie choice! Start out with a medium length layered cut that falls just below the shoulders.

Get your curling iron going and add some curls to the front to create some wavy face framing layers. Then take your blunt bangs (that may be slightly layered or curved) and give them a little curl under. This hairstyle is a great choice if you’re looking for something a little different and really want to show off your face!

A straight hairstyle with shorter layers is the perfect blend of experimental and practical. For this particular indie hairstyle, simply ask your hair stylist to add in some short (chin length or a little longer) layers in the front while still keeping your length in the back.

This look creates lots of movement and texture and is the ideal indie hairstyle paired with a fun bold pair of black rimmed  eyeglasses.

You can get this super straight look without heat! In a spray bottle, combine one cup of water with two tablespoons of brown sugar (white doesn’t work). Spray damp hair, let it air dry, and you have this hot indie look!
