100 Hilariously Extreme Hairstyles

From Massive Headdresses to Wild Mushroom Hairdos

— January 28, 2013 — Fashion
One sure fire way to get some attention is with one of these extreme hairstyles. For both men and women, your hairstyle is a reflection of how you feel about yourself. The look in men's hair these days is more towards short styles, but women's hair is all over the map: just look at some of these extreme hairstyles as proof.

Here we see massive hair headdresses, like the one created by CuldeSac and Studio Marisol that consists of intricate braid patterns in a basket-like pattern. A spike mohawk has been the go-to extreme hairstyle for rebellious punk rockers for years, however now we're seeing it on more than a few women as well.

No matter which extreme hairstyle appeals to you, you've got to admit they all make a statement.
