25 Subculture Hairstyles

From Crystal Bowersox Dreadlocks to Plus-Sized Pompadours

— May 27, 2010 — Fashion
The way to stand out these days is with a fierce hairstyle: just ask Crystal Bowersox, who rocked one of the many subculture hairstyles during her stint on American Idol. Crystal Bowersox's dreadlocks and talent skyrocketed her to super-popularity. Or take Rihanna, who shed her long wavy locks for a super-edgy mohawk.

In fashion, the editorials and models that stand out are the ones that take a risk, and often that risk has involved an edgy hairstyle. Need some inspiration? Check out these subculture hairstyles to feel instantly unique.
