If You’re Stylish, You Will Love These 20 Fun Hairstyles

Thankfully, nearly every hairstyle can be considered a ‘fun hairstyle’ these days. Anything goes in this era of hair, and in this article we are featuring 20 of our favorite fun hairstyles! There’s a mixture of fun styles for short, medium and long-haired gals, so no one is left out. Have FUN!

Short ‘n Sassy

This chic look is a great way to rock your otherwise ordinary short pixie haircut.

Short Fun HairstyleShort Fun Hairstyle Side

How To Style:

  1. Start with dry hair. Hair that is a day old is ideal because a little grit will help you create a look like this!
  2. Put a bit of texturizing cream on your fingertips. Run it through your hair with no particular rhyme or reason. Push the front up if you prefer.
  3. Spray everything with a strong hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

If you have short hair that’s cut in a pixie-type of style, this look is for you! Fine hair that’s straight will be easiest to style into this look. If you have thick curly hair, just be sure to use a flat iron or round brush to smooth your hair out before you apply product.

Recommended Products:

I love Sumo Tech by Bumble and Bumble. It’s light but will give your hair a ton of texture and won’t get flaky. It also has a matte texture so it won’t dry wet-looking.

Wildly Wonderful

Here’s a funky, fun take on your average curly style! It’s super glam and is perfect for a date night out.

Fun Blonde Hairstyle with CurlsFun Hairstyles

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s smooth and parted to one side.
  2. Separate your hair into sections and secure each side with a very loose ponytail holder.
  3. Once you have your two ponytails, use a small curling iron and curl sections of the ponytails.s
  4. When you have curled all sections of the ponytail, remove the ponytail holders and violá!
  5. Run your fingers through the curls, then spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is absolutely perfect for those of you with fine hair that want to make it appear bigger and fuller. Short to medium length hair is ideal for this look. It’s also a great way to show off your long, swoopy side bangs! A square face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

I love Moroccan Oil Medium Finishing spray for this style. It’s light and it smells amazing! You will love it.

A Modern Mohawk

This style falls in the “fun” category for sure! It’s a modern take on the classic Mohawk.

Fun Modern MohawkFun Modern Mohawk Side

How To Style:

  1. First, create a “pouf” that begins at your hairline and goes back about three inches. Do this by backcombing with a backcombing brush to create volume at your roots.
  2. Next, gather your hair into three small ponytails. One should be right behind the pouf you just created, one right in the back/middle of your head, and the last one just below that, about two inches above the nape of your neck.
  3. Use a back combing brush and backcomb the hair in the ponytails.
  4. Once you have created a lot of texture and volume in the ponytails, use a few bobby pins to strategically link the whole style together so that the ponytails all look like one Mohawk section.
  5. Spray everything with a strong hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

If you have short to medium length hair that’s a bit coarse or curly, this look is absolutely for you. Also, hair with a lot of layers will work for this style. A round face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

Ladies, I cannot say this enough…use a backcombing brush instead of a comb! It’s much gentler on your hair and will give you incredible volume. Spornette makes one called the “Little Wonder” Brush and it’s fabulous!

Tip:

If you have fine hair and you want to try this look, spray a little dry shampoo at your roots before you begin backcombing. This will give your hair a bit of “grit” and will give your hair extra volume.

A Braided Halo

This super soft and sweet look is totally dreamy! A little braid “halo” will complement any hairstyle.

Braided Halo HairstyleBraided Halo Hairstyle Side

How To Style:

  1. Begin by spraying your hair with a light working spray.
  2. Create a French braid that begins on one side of your part and extends back approximately two inches. Continue the braid until you reach your temple area and then secure the end back with a tiny bobby pin.
  3. Smooth the rest of your hair back so it hides the bobby pin you just used.
  4. Use a medium-sized curling iron to add some wave to the rest of your hair. Then use a back combing brush to backcomb your roots and get some volume.
  5. Spray everything with a strong hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is a great “updo” option if you have short hair. A long pixie is especially ideal. Finer to medium textured hair that’s straight will work perfectly. Any face shape is great for this style!

Recommended Products:

A working spray is a great product to keep on hand no matter what style you are creating! Fine hair lends especially well to a working spray. Does It All by Bumble and Bumble is my absolute favorite working spray. It’s so light but still gives your hair a little texture to work with.

Tip:

If you are having trouble creating a braid on super short hair, you can always simply twist your hair for a similar look.

Bundles of Bounce

This look is simply bouncy! Tons of volume makes for a voluminous, beautifully curled look. This fun hairstyle is timeless!

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s smooth and parted to one side.
  2. Use a medium-sized curling iron and curl sections of your hair.
  3. Once all sections have been curled, use your fingers to separate the curls and make them appear softer and more natural.
  4. Use a backcombing brush to create volume at your roots in the crown area. Then use your brush to smooth down the back combed section.
  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

If you have long hair that’s thick and cut in a style with a bunch of layers, this look is for you! A square face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

Add a bit of shine spray to your hair after you have finished curling it. I love Shimmer Shine by Kevin Murphy! Spray it in your hands and then apply it to the ends of your hair.

Perfectly Piecey

This beautiful look is perfectly “pieced out” with plenty of texture and style. It’s ultra romantic and super easy to create!

Romantic Curly Hairstyle with TextureRomantic Curly Hairstyle with Texture Side

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s parted to one side.
  2. Use a small curling iron to curl small sections of your hair. Spray each section with a working spray before you curl it.
  3. Once you have curled all of your hair, gather a section of hair at your part and separate it into three sections. Create a very loose French braid. Once the braid reaches your ear, secure it with a bobby pin. Be sure to disguise the bobby pin underneath the rest of your hair.
  4. Put a bit of shine serum on your fingertips and gently wrap each curl around your finger to define it and give the curls a separated, piecey look.
  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is great for medium to long hair that is cut in an a-line or has a lot of layers. It’s a great option for keeping a long fringe out of your face. If you have a round face shape, this look will be flattering to you.

Recommended Products:

A great product to use to separate the curls is Brilliantine by Bumble and Bumble. It’s light but will add just the right amount of shine to your hair!

Freely Flowing

This flowy, relaxed look is suitable for nearly every length and hair texture! It’s an all purpose look that will never go out of style.

Relaxed Blond Hairstyle with CurlsRelaxed Blond Hairstyle with Curls Side

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s parted to one side.
  2. Curl sections of your hair using a small, 1-inch curling iron. Leave the ends out of the curling iron when curling.
  3. Once you have curled all of your hair, use your fingers to separate the curls and make them appear softer and more natural.
  4. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Short, medium or long hair is great for this style. Additionally, any texture of hair will work well for this look. Hair that’s layered will work perfectly for this style.

Recommended Products:

Before you start curling, spray each section with Spray de Mode by Bumble and Bumble. It will give the curls a bit more hold.

Beautifully Bodacious

If you have long, thick hair, show it off with this sexy curled ‘do!

Long Hairstyle with Sexy Curls

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair parted to one side.
  2. Use a small curling iron to curl each section of your hair.
  3. If desired, gather the few sections of hair that are right around your temple areas and pull them back loosely. Secure them with a bobby pin.
  4. Use your fingers to gently separate the curls so they look softer and more natural.
  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

If you have long hair that’s thick and has a bit of natural wave, this is a great styling option for you. A square or oval face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

For even more bounce and va-va-voom, spray some Unite Boosta Spray on your hair when it’s wet.

Old School Glam

This retro glam look is easily one of the most fun and sassy looks in existence. It is easy to create and will have you turning heads all night!

Retro Fun Hairstyle with Headband

How To Style:

  1. Curl sections of dry hair using a 1¼-inch curling iron. Be sure all the curls are going in the same direction. A good rule of thumb is to curl every section away from your face.
  2. Once you have curled everything, use a brush to gently brush through the curls to soften them and form a more defined curl pattern.
  3. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray, then add a fun headband or hair adornment if you so desire!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Hair that’s mostly one length with very few layers is great for this look. An a-line haircut (shorter in the back and longer in the front) on short to medium length hair could also be perfect with this style. A square face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

I love Classic Hairspray by Bumble and Bumble. It’s light and won’t get sticky or crunchy. Spray it on hair before you curl AND after you have finished curling. It’s a dual purpose spray!

Flower Crowned and Classy

This über classy and romantic look has an extra element of sweetness with the flower crown.

Long Romantic Hairstyle with Flower Crown

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair parted to the side.
  2. Use a 1-inch curling iron to curl small sections of your hair.
  3. When everything has been curled, use your fingers and separate the curls so that they feel more natural and flowy.
  4. Spray with a light hold finishing spray, then attach your flower crown or other hair adornment using bobby pins.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Here’s another style that’s incredibly versatile and will work for any hair type! An oval or heart shaped face will be flattered by this look.

Recommended Products:

If you want to add a little shine and shimmer to your look, use Kevin Murphy’s Shimmer Shine Spray after you have finished styling. Spray a bit in your hands and then apply it to the ends of your hair.

Tip:

Keep in mind that I recommended using a 1-inch curling iron. If you have shorter, finer hair, this may make your curls too spiral-ish and you may want to opt for using a thicker curling iron. The bigger the curling iron, the bigger and looser the curl will be!

Perfectly Undone

This style looks relaxed yet intentional. It’s a great option for a fancy, fun night out!

Short Curly Fun HairstyleShort Curly Fun Hairstyle Side

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair parted to the side. Use a small curling iron to curl sections of your hair.
  2. Use a backcombing brush to add body at the roots of your hair.
  3. Start gathering sections of your hair and pinning them up using bobby pins. Don’t overthink this step! The idea here is to get the hair pinned up so it looks intentional, but not perfect. Be sure to leave some longer pieces out around your face to add some movement.
  4. Spray everything with a strong hold hairspray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is perfect if you have shorter hair (about shoulder length or collarbone length) that is full of body and bounce. If you have naturally curly hair, even better! A rounder face shape will be complemented by this style.

Recommended Products:

If you need a bit more body at your roots, try spraying a bit of dry shampoo on your roots before you back comb. I love Fresh Dust by L’Oreal Professional.

Au Naturel

This super fun and sassy look is right up your alley if you have a ton of natural curls!

Natural Curly Fun HairstyleNatural Curly Fun Hairstyle Side

How To Style:

  1. After you wash your hair, pat it with a towel to absorb moisture then apply a mousse and curl cream to your locks.
  2. Use a diffuser to dry your hair.
  3. If more volume is desired, use a backcombing brush to add volume at your roots.
  4. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look will work for you if you have a LOT of natural curl. Short, medium or long hair will work for this style. The more layers, the better. A square face shape will be flattered by this look.

Recommended Products:

Sculpting Foam by Paul Mitchell is a great product to combine with a curl cream!

Tip:

Any curly girls who don’t own a diffuser should definitely invest in one. It’s an attachment that goes on your blow dryer and diffuses the air coming out of the dryer so it can dry your curls evenly. It defines your curls and is a must-have for your curly locks!

The Pretty Pomp

This pompadour look is totally modern and chic. For short hair it’s a must try!

Pretty Pompadour HairstylePretty Pompadour Hairstyle Side

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is ideal if you have very short hair on the sides and longer hair on the top. Fine hair that’s straight will work perfectly for this style. This look will really accentuate your features, so really any face shape will work for this style.

Recommended Products:

To help this style hold in place all night, you will want to use a very strong hold hairspray. I love Air Control by Aveda!

Naturally Curly

If you have been blessed with naturally curly locks, you will definitely want to give this look a try. A deep side part will accentuate your beautiful features and highlight a fun, layered cut!

Long Naturally Curly Hairstyle with Deep PartLong Naturally Curly Hairstyle with Deep Part Side

How To Style:

  1. Begin with wet hair that has been patted dry with a towel.
  2. Apply a curl cream and mousse evenly throughout your hair.
  3. Use a diffuser to dry your hair.
  4. After you have dried your hair, back omb at your roots if more volume is desired.
  5. Create a very deep part that begins on one side of your head near your temple.
  6. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is awesome if you have a square or oval face. Naturally curly hair of any length will work for this style. A haircut with plenty of layers will give you even more volume and body.

Recommended Products:

Bumble and Bumble makes a great curl cream that’s light and will accentuate your curls. Also, Sculpting Foam by Paul Mitchell is a mousse that is light and won’t get too sticky. Those two combined together create a great cocktail for perfect curls!

Tip:

If you don’t have naturally curly hair, you can create this look by using a 1-inch curling iron and curling very small sections of your hair.

Sweetly Side Swept

The sweet braid adds a bit of interest to this beautiful, side-swept look.

Side Swept Braid HairstyleSide Swept Braid Hairstyle Side

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry, straight hair that’s parted to one side. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, blow dry your hair straight or use a flat iron to smooth it out.
  2. Braid your hair staring at your hairline, continuing back to the nap of your neck on the opposite side of your head. Secure the end with a bobby pin, but be sure to cover it with other hair.

Best Face Shape and hair Type:

This look is great if you have long hair that doesn’t have a lot of short layers. If you have a round or oval face, this look will complement you nicely.

Recommended Products:

To make your hair look extra soft and silky, apply some Aveda Dry Remedy Oil to the ends. Use it sparingly thought because a little bit goes a long way! Keep this product off of your roots.

Tip:

A braid like this may take some practice, so don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t turn out perfect on the first try. You can also enlist a friend to help you out!

Awesomely Editorial

This look is totally editorial and over-the-top fun. Try it for a night out on the town or a fun dress-up event!

Fun Editorial Hairstyle

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s parted down the center.
  2. Use the smallest curling iron you have and curl small sections of your hair.
  3. When you reach the top section of your hair near your part, apply a small amount of smoothing gel that extends out about two to three inches from your part. Use a comb to smooth your hair. Curl the ends of that section of hair. If the gel doesn’t get your hair smooth enough, secure that section to your head using bobby pins.
  4. Use a backcombing brush to backcomb each section to get more volume.
  5. Spray everything with a strong hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is great and will be much easier to create if you have medium to short hair that has a bit of natural curl or wave. A square face shape will be complemented by this look.

Recommended Products:

I love using Super Goo by Kevin Murphy for any sort of gel/strong hold needs. The consistency is a little unusual, so start with only a little and add more if needed. Use a comb to comb it through the top section of your hair.

A Funky French Twist

  6. Use bobby pins to secure some of the curls back to the side of the French twist.
  7. Spray everything with a strong hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will look best on someone who has a lot of long, thick hair. If it’s naturally curly, even better! A round face shape will be complemented by this look.

Medium to long hair that’s fairly thick is ideal for this style. A heart or oval shaped face will be complemented by this look.

Tip:

If you don’t have super thick hair, try creating the braids as French braids instead of just regular braids. It will make them appear thicker!
