HairGlamourista Staff Oct 21, 2018
Spiky hairstyles are not only popular among men, but also among women. There are lots of spiky hairstyle choices and options available for women that can make them look sexy and chic.
Hairstyle trends have undergone a lot of change over the years. While earlier, most women had long hair, today short length has gained a lot of popularity because of their versatility and easy maintenance. 
Short hairdos do not necessarily make a woman look like a tomboy. There are a lot of choices in the same like the spiky hairstyles that can make a woman look sexy and chic. In recent years, this style has become the latest rage, with celebrities like Sharon Stone and Pink sporting them.
Going from long to short haircuts is a big step for most women. Opt for this style if you are tired of being a clone and want to make a statement with your hair.
Though, make sure that you have the right attitude and confidence to carry off one of the same. The right one along with the proper hair care products can help you maintain the same and will help reduce years from your look.
If styled rightly, most face shapes carry them off, Oval, inverted-pear, rectangular face shapes are the best suited.
If you have a wide forehead and narrow chin, then opting for the pixie style is not the best choice, as it will only highlight the wideness of your forehead. This doesn't suit round faces as it enhances the face fat.

Some Spiky Hairstyle Ideas:

Spiky Bob

The classic bob is an evergreen hairstyle. A twist on the classic bob is the spiky bob hairdo. It allows the wearer to have several different looks. To achieve this look, the bob is cut extremely short in the back and accented with a soft-fringed neckline. The uneven cuts at the back and long sides, give it an edgy look.

Spiky Layered

If you want to go really short with your hair, you can create a layering effect at the bottom section, keeping the section on the top long enough for spikes. This style does not require much hair care and only requires a little hair gel. Its best feature is that it adds height and also makes the face look thinner. This is most popular among women.

Spiky Pixie

This suits women of all ages. If styled rightly, it can make you look years younger. Also, it requires no upkeep and is versatile as it can be made to look elegant and subtle, or dramatic and punk. Layering this style will soften your look while still maintaining its edge.

Bangs and Highlights

It is a great way of softening the medium spiky hairstyles. If you have a face shape that isn't compatible with certain short styles, use bangs as they dramatically change the look or give a feminine touch, to the style.
Side swept bangs or fringes create illusion of reducing a wider forehead of long or heart face shapes.
Also, adding highlights to the spikes will create a dramatic look. You can take inspiration from Pink, who has set the perfect example of how interesting colors can be used to accentuate these hairdos.
There are a lot of other choices. However, the important thing is to be as original and creative as you want, as this hairstyle is all about being individualistic.
