Best Crazy Hairstyles and Styling Guide
Bantu Knots with Mini Claw Clips
This take on bantu knots is very cute. Adorned with colorful mini claw clips this is a crazy hairstyle that you can do for yourself or your kid. It is also simple enough that you can still wear this on a normal school or work day.
To do this hairstyle, part your hair into four or more sections. Twist your hair and put it into a bun. Secure the bun with a small ponytail and/or hairpins. If you have extra time, you can pluck out a few inches of your hair, braid them, and wrap it around the buns to hide the ponytails. Decorate your hair with hair clips.
Crazy Layered Hair Style
This woman’s crazy hair style match her outfit’s provocative vibe. This hairstyle is perfect for themed parties or for when you really want to wow your friends.
To do this hairstyle, you would need two hair lengths—your hair’s top section would have to be a few inches shorter than the back section.
If you can’t commit to this hairstyle permanently, you can use hair extensions instead. With a hair straightener or hair curler (use a big barrel for this one!), curl the ends of your hair’s shorter section. This should create a bump or kink in your hair that looks like the one in the photo. Use hairspray to hold it in place.
Crazy Ginger Braids Style
It’s your kids’ crazy hair day at school, and you still haven’t thought of any styles for your kid to stand out? No problem! This hairstyle puts your kid’s hair into a literal hair bow. Don’t be overwhelmed with how it looks—it’s cute and easy!
To achieve this look, part your hair into different sections. Put the first two sections into a ponytail, and create three or four small braids for each section. If your hair is too short, use hair weaves. Once done braiding, grab two braids and use them to create a ribbon. Wrap the remaining braid/s around the ponytail to get a cleaner look.
For the other braids, put the sections into separate ponytails and braid the middle part, stopping halfway to merge with the remaining ponytails. Braid the rest of the hair from the middle part with the back sections. Adorn with colorful clips and other trinkets, if available.
Cute Bun-ny Crazy Hair Style
This hairstyle is fairly easy and perfect for last-minute costume parties and other events! To get this look, pull your hair into a clean, high bun. Use a hair sleek stick or a fine-toothed comb to brush back any stray strands. Assemble the pieces of felt paper onto your bun. You may tape hair pins or velcro on the back of the felt paper to keep the design in place.
Colored Undercut with Crazy Patterns
Living a double life? No worries!
You can keep your long, simple hairstyle while also rocking a colorful and crazy hairstyle! To achieve this look, ask your hairdresser to give you a half-shave at the back of your head.
Bleach your hair until you reach a bleach level that would work well with pastel colors. With a hair coloring brush, color your hair with various colors of hair dye. Rinse thoroughly after 30 minutes to an hour. With a black dye, create a design. You can do animal prints or shapes if you want to!
Halloween Pumpkin Hair Style
Do you know what makes fall and Halloween better? Pumpkins! And a hairstyle dedicated to such fruit (yes, it is a fruit) is a must this season! To do this hairstyle, put your hair in a tight, clean bun.
With an orange hair spray, color your hair bun. Wrap fake leaves and vines around the bun to hide the pins and ponytails. Lastly, insert a small stick that will act as the pumpkin’s stem.

The result is a fun and funky look that is sure to turn heads. Bubble braided bangs are relatively easy to style, use some colorful bands and beads to add some personality to your hair!
How to start doing crazy hair styles?
Wash your hair, if necessary.
Crazy hair styles sometimes require the use of hair products like styling devices and hairsprays. To avoid product build-up, it is advisable to wash your hair before putting up your hair for styling. However, your hair has to be washed at least a day before for your hair to hold up properly, especially if you’re attempting an updo. Should you find the need to wash your hair, experts advise you to use the appropriate shampoo and conditioner for your hair.
Dry your hair.
Here’s a general rule: avoid styling your hair when damp or wet (except for certain hair styling techniques, of course). Your hair is more stretchable when wet, and putting up your hair in a bun, braid, or ponytail will only cause tension when your hair starts to dry up. Wait for your hair to dry, or use a hair dryer before putting up your chosen crazy hairstyle.
There is no limit to how crazy and creative you can get when doing fun hairstyles! You can color your hair, braid it, twist it, or adorn it with colorful clips. The possibilities are just endless! Use the images and style guides above for inspiration, or create your own crazy hairstyle.
General tips for creating crazy hair styles
Bleach and colorants.
Hairstyles aren’t all about twists and braids; you can also bring it to the next level by coloring your hair!
The downside to this, however, is that bleach and hair colorants are a bit harsh to the scalp and may cause your hair to dry. When bleaching/coloring your hair, make sure to use the right amount of bleach/colorant and oxidizer. Don’t forget to use moisturizing hair products after!
When doing crazy hair styles, it’s inevitable to use hair styling devices that use heat. Should you find the need to use one, make sure to use a heat protectant to avoid damage and breakage. This one is crucial, especially when doing your kids’ hair.
Braids and weaves.
When doing braids, make sure not to keep them too tight. Braiding your hair too tight can cause your hair to break and may even cause headaches.
Another tip–if you want to keep your braids sleek and clean, get yourself a spritz bottle. That way, you won’t have to style your hair while it’s still wet and fresh from the shower. You won’t also have to pull on your hair tightly to achieve a cleaner look.
Don’t pull on the hair too much.
Braided or not, putting your hair up in a crazy hairstyle would need you to pull on your hair to put it in place. This tip is a bit obvious, but here’s a reminder not to pull on the hair too much! Doing so may cause hair breakage and scalp irritation.
Don’t put too much hair product.
Crazy hair styles may require you to put styling products onto your hair to hold it in place. But remember, too much of anything is never good, especially when it comes to hair products that may cause damage to your hair. Should you find the need to use hair products, make sure, it’s safe for use, especially for kids.
Don’t do crazy hair styles when wet.
Your hair is a lot stretchable when wet, so putting up a style while your hair is still drying may cause damage to your mane when it’s finally dry. Apart from that, it is definitely harder to style your hair when it’s still wet. If you’re running a bit late, get yourself a hairdryer and let the device do its job.
Whether it’s for Halloween, a costume party, or a crazy hair day at your child’s school, doing unique and unusual hairstyles is a great and easy way to show your personality! If you need inspiration, you can follow our styling guide or create a hairstyle that is completely your own!
