DIY Skrillex {Hair Tutorial}

by now you have probably seen the growing popularity of the "skrillex" haircut. named after the "dub step" king Skrillex, this half shaved hair-do is seen on many a pop queen. while the original skrillex "do" is a half shaved head i'm not willing to sacrifice my hair for a trend. instead i saw this alternative version on my girl Ev from Basketball Wives and thought it would make a good tutorial.

here's a glimpse of some recent glamour girls to jump on board the skrillex train:

to create your own "faux skrillex"

  • give yourself a stick straight side part.
  • section the area you want to braid and clip away hair you want to avoid
  • braid section and repeat three times

this definitely has an urban swagger to it but it is great for summer. step outside of the box and give something like this a try. you just might like it.
