Thanks to musician Skrillex, singer Cassie and a revival of all things popularized in the 1980s, a number of celebrities have stepped out with side-shaved hairdos over the past few years. If you’re a fan of the look but aren’t ready to part ways with a third of your mane just yet, you’ll appreciate that an imitation ’do is on the rise and doesn’t require you to take clippers to your tresses á la Rihanna, Avril Lavigne and Ke$ha.
Instead of shaving part of your head, simply plait or cornrow one side. This creates the illusion of the punk-inspired hairstyle Skrillex (a.k.a. the King of Dub Step) has turned into the hottest trend since skinny jeans. Kristen Stewart, Shakira and Carmen Electra have all recently been spotted with the look—the perfect style for hair commitment phobes.
What do you think? Is a faux Skrillex ’do in the cards for you?
