9 Lesbian Hairstyles That Have Rocked The World

CREATED ON // Tuesday, 17 March 2015 Author // Rachel Cook

Lesbians have rocked some serious hairstyles in their time. From the classic 'we mean business' shaved head to the hair-cut that each new generation of lesbian just keeps renewing - the mullet, (who said we have no sense of fashion!). Here are nine of our best.

1. THE PIXIE

The cult 60s film The Killing of Sister George was not only way ahead of its time in its content it was also where we got to see a real life lesbian bar in action.

Alice on the left sported this darling little pixie hairstyle which went perfectly with her night of drag at the local queer lady club.

2. THE MULLET

In the 1970s something happened that would change lesbians forever - The Mullet. The look that’s described as ‘business in the front, party out the back’ was a winner with everyone from tennis champ Martina Navratilova…

To fledgling comedian Ellen DeGeneres who took it into the 80s…

To Tegan and Sara who brought the thing back with a vengeance.

3. THE FLAT TOP

The Flat-Top was instigated by 80s icon Grace Jones but lesbians saw it and said, ‘I want what she’s having’. Essentially it’s a mullet that’s all about the business with none of the party. Serious stuff.

 Everyone’s favourite DJ Kim Ann Foxman did it justice completely.

4. THE SHAVED HEAD

Then God smiled upon the lesbians and said “Here Lesbians I Give You Sinead” and the lesbians fell to their knees and worshipped their Irish goddess and learnt every freaking word to every freaking song she ever wrote.

The Shaved Head could only be rocked by those with a perfectly shaped head – most of us learnt that the hard way.

5. THE BIEBER

The last two decades have given us a plethora of choices – some have been bigger than others but none has been bigger than The Bieber.

‘Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber’ became a phenomena – so much so we are not sure if this is a picture of a lesbian or the Biebs himself.

6. THE SHANE

Then God smiled on the lesbians again and gave us The L Word…and Shane…and Shane’s hair.

7. THE FRINGE

There was a few years there where is became really fashionable in the lesbian community to only see out of one eye. Whether you had straight or curly hair we grew our fringes long and spent the night trying to pretend it wasn’t really annoying.

8. THE DREADS

Like the mullet some lesbians have put in a lot of time and effort to keep dreadlocks alive. The Real L Word’s Whitney Mixter has now basically trademarked them so if you want dreads you need to run it by her first.

9. THE QUIFF

You couldn’t possibly talk about anything to do with lesbian style and not bring out the big guns – Ruby Rose. Blond or brunette the girl rocks The Quiff like no other.
