What Styling Products Will I Use? I Have To Deeply Over Think About It
Alternative styling products give you the option to create or fake some hot styles. Wild, choppy, funky hair is the norm these days.

And even the most radical styles of days gone by have made their way back into the fashion mainstream. As mullets and Mohawks become an everyday sight to see, one has to wonder just "how’d they do that?”

Let’s start off with the most common throwback hairstyle the Emo. Emos have sweeping bangs that often end asymmetrically. Today’s popular mullet often uses this bang style as well.

With a very stylized haircut, product and technique is the key. Also alternative styling products work best on straight hair. Or hair that gets help to become quite straight via flat irons or straightening products.

I Have An EMO Personality As I Am Prone To Cowlicks

Begin by blow-drying your bangs into place. Use a strong-hold mousse in wet hair. Especially if your bangs are prone to cowlicks.

First you will need an amazing flat-iron and a straightening spray. Hopefully one with some extra emollients to help protect your locks from excessive heat. Use to smooth your hair and accentuate the pieciness of your style.

Once your hair is smooth and your bangs are sweeping just so, try a wax or pomade. Such as Sebastian Crude Clay. Next spike out your shorter pieces and texturize the long ones.

As this gives your hair an added dose of deliberate dirtiness. But without all the trouble of actual skipping the shower.

Perhaps several variations of the Mohawk have found their way onto our televisions. Also sidewalks and even workplaces. Gravity-defying style can actually be quite tricky. Often the wearer will go to great lengths to get there.

Often guys and gals will use glue as their alternative hairstyling products. These glues range from ICE hair glue to actual Elmer’s School Glue. As this helps to really get your hair up to there.

As well shorter hawks also get a lift with a bit of gelatin. And lighter hair can even get a color boost that way.

Today many top companies make alternative styling products in various strengths and for different styles. Elmer’s Glue however does not.

Everything I Know About Styling I Learned In School

Once upon a time, those real punks used egg whites to stiffen their spikes. Maybe think meringue?Whatever your medium, you’re gonna need a high powered blow dryer to your alternative styling products. Always work one section at a time from front to back.

Once hair is as high as you’d like, you can straighten things out with your trusty flat-iron. Then finish it off with a high-hold hairspray.

While the styling can be more time consuming than most for alternative hairstyles. Perhaps the upside is that with carefully arranged pillow placement, one styling will last multiple days.

The time will come for you to remove that glue and Jello though. Try rinsing your hair with a little baking soda to dissolve styling product. Use a clarifying shampoo to wash out alternative styling products as traditional hair styles will.

Do I Look Like My Name Is Bettie?

Little rockabilly or Bettie Page bangs are not really alternative hairstyles. But they are a be a bit of a challenge to style as well. Break out that blow dryer and some mega hold hairspray again. 

Then blow your hair straight down or just under. Use a round brush to keep that straight across line smooth and even.

Spray midway through, and then continue with the blow dryer. Break up the spray once your bangs are sitting just right with a comb.
