When it comes to hairstyles, it is good to be bad!! Unlike in the movies, the word “baddie” here is more meaningful and has no negative connotations. While the baddie eventually gets slain in films, real-life baddie girls do all the slaying!! How many of you love the character Harley Quinn and her bright-colored pigtail hairstyle? Now that is what you call a baddie! But is she “bad”? Not really. She is beautiful and amazingly bad!
You would need to know one thing: being a baddie is not only about being loud and whacky. You can also be subtle like an Uma Thurman with a blunt bob style and still be bold. Both leave a powerful impact!
If you want to transition from the boring girl to the confident, invincible, fearless but drop-dead gorgeous baddie girl, the right place to start is the hair. If there is one thing baddies have in common, it is their hairstyle! They don’t shy away from experimenting, and just their presence is enough to make a statement.
Let us now delve straight into the 15 baddie hairstyles that will put you into the baddie league:
Vibrant blunt bob
Is there a better way to start the list than a hairstyle popularized by the quintessential baddie Uma Thurman of Pulp Fiction fame. It is called vibrant because you can experiment with both bold and subtle colors. The blunt bob refers to the straight cut at the edges with no additional layers. The styling may be minimal, but it is no less glamorous. This baddie hairstyle is also easy to maintain.
Any list of baddie hairstyles would be incomplete without the pigtail hairstyle. There couldn’t have been a better choice of a baddie hairstyle for Harley Quinn than this one. If you have a long and flowing mane, what’s stopping you? Just tie two knots from the top, and you have the pigtail hairstyle!! You do just a little but say a lot.
If you are the type of baddie that likes sports and adventure, the boxer braid style is one you should not miss out on. Instead of continually worrying about grooming your hair, the boxer braid style eliminates all those hassles. Instead, it makes your hair an extension of your personality.
If you want to tone down on the tough look and concentrate a little more on glamour to fit into a formal setting, the accent braid is one excellent baddie hairstyle. It is whacky but not over the top, and hence a right choice for fashionistas who want to try out a bold but glamorous hairstyle.
Half-up Fountain Pony
This baddie hairstyle is an improvement of sorts from the half-up ponytail. If you have seen Kim Kardashian sport this hairstyle, the difference is the “fountain” appearance on the head’s crown. You can try this hairstyle for both the casual and formal look.
Being a baddie is not only about attitude. A baddie is a fashionista in every sense of the word and will explore all possible options to look gorgeous. If you have voluminous and healthy hair, this is one style to flaunt it even further.
This is taking the bun a few notches higher. To accomplish this baddie hairstyle, you need to part your hair in the middle and use the two separate parts to form two fluffy balls. Unlike the sleek and tight balls, this hairstyle has a fuller appearance and is bolder.
If you want to put your hair clips and other fancy hair clips to best use, this is one style you should try. It works well with both curly and straight hair. For straight hair, you can try using the clips on the upper side of your head where the hairline starts. You can try making mini hairballs with your hair clips’ help and use other small fancy clips along the strand to lend the finishing touches for curly hair.
Rubber band hairstyle
Like clips, you can use rubber bands to style your hair. A rubber band is generally used to tie a ponytail. But if you have a strong rubber band of different colors, you can use them to make small ponytails on your hairlines and weave them over each other.
The tiny strands of baby hair at the start of the hairline can be tricky sometimes. It comes in the way of achieving a neat and polished look. Instead of worrying about what to do with them, how about you style them into an interesting design using an edge control gel and a toothbrush. The slayed edges generally compliment braided hairstyles.
Cornrows Baddie Hairstyles
Talking about braids and slayed edges, you cannot miss out on the cornrows baddie hairstyle. If you have long thick hair and want to project a warrior princess’s persona, this baddie hairstyle is one for you.
Half-up sleek top knot
As the name suggests, there is a knot tied at the head’s crown to form a bun. This baddie hairstyle’s other components are the frills in the front and two bunch of hair flowing down on the front of the shoulders. This is a fantastic combination of girly but baddie!
If you want a more compact hairstyle than the half-up sleek top knot hairstyle but equally beautiful, the Ultra-high topknot style is a good choice. It is called ultra-high as the bun is taller than the more conventional buns. Because all the hair section is used to make the bun, there are no strands of hair protruding too.
Really long sleek hair
If you are curvaceous or your body is on the fuller side, flaunting long and sleek hair can only add to your overall appeal. Sporting long sleek hair gives you the option to experiment with other hairstyles that require long thick hair like the different kinds of buns. If they are silky and shiny, you can just let them flow on your shoulders till your lower back like wearing a thin shawl.
Brazilian body wave
If you have hair that is long, wavy, curly, and rich in texture, the Brazilian body wave hairstyle will make you look like a diva. This baddie hairstyle is called “body wave” because the hair that rests around your shoulders and upper body appears like waves.
If you are looking at the mirror right now, you would realize that one of these hairstyles can transform you into a baddie, the type that is confident and gorgeous and stands out in a crowd.
