25 Terrific Gothic Hairstyles

The medieval ages were high on drama and individual style with a touch of the dark. Gothic fashion is inspired by individual expressions that combine the dark features with modern styles. Gothic Hairstyles are a great exercise in showing your mysterious side and playing up your dark elements. When it comes to Gothic styling red and black are favorite hair colors for their intense passion. You can also get wild with vivid blue highlights in your hair.

Free and dramatic Goth hair fashion often mixes elements from different ages for a fresh new look. You find styles in which a deep front fringe is paired with regular side ponies. Many hairstyles for long hair simply keep the hair open with side bangs. You also have Goth hair fashion with a touch of punk in which edges and spiky effects are used on black hair. Accessories are a big part of Goth styling, so you can see Gothic Hairstyles decked up with a black rose accessory or two artificial devil’s horns. A lot of roller work incomes into the picture, and you can also find hairstyles that use layers for a mysterious Gothic look. For a superbly edgy Gothic expression get your hair styled in asymmetrical front layers that nearly cover one eye. Pair the hairstyle with dramatic face makeup, and you have all the ingredients for a fun Gothic expression.

    Love the ‘Accesorizing Gothic’ girls hairstyle. The beautiful girl reminds me of the lovely presenter and actress Emily Booth.

    While I enjoyed these photos and some of the looks are really wonderful, some of these people aren’t wearing goth styles.

    “Nothing Tree Goth Hairstyle,” appears to be doing a riff of Batman’s Poison Ivy. “Halloween Gothic Girls,” “Green Goth,” “Red Noise,” and possibly “GothGeek Hairstyle” also appear to be a costumes, and while it’s gothic, “The Hunger” isn’t clubwear, it’s costume.

    “Gothic Sibling Fashion” is Visual Kei, straight up. Wholly different subculture.
