29 Hipster Haircuts

James Dean-Inspired Styles to Bad Boy Greasers

— April 19, 2012 — Fashion
Numerous popular hipster hair styles have bee observed throughout the last few years, such as the fauxhawk, mohawk, buzz cut and even the mushroom. However, the most popular cut is one that can be spotted from a mile away; shaved short at the sides and left long at the top, this hipster haircut is taking over.

Whether referred to as the quiff, grass head or hipster hair, this style is so huge icon James Dean even sported it once (oh, vintage!). This hair style is sleek and stylish, but it comes with a stigma of pretentiousness and snobbery. Take a look through this series of photoshoots and fashion editorials to see if you pass the hipster haircut test.
