The ultimate wedding fauxhawk

For those of you short haired brides looking for some major hair inspiration, OBT member Avalon just had her hair trial appointment and brings us what she calls the "androgynous punk/goth faerie princess look"…

If you're in love with this look as much as we are, you are in luck because Avalon has been kind enough to provide a 360 degree view of the 'do…

Ooh, look at the complete wedding look! LOVE!

Thanks to Avalon for letting us post pictures of her hair trial for all to see. I can't wait to see what your "Goth fairie princess meets dark brooding slumlord from beyond the stars" wedding this April looks like!

  1. I've always wanted a faux hawk but I don't think I could pull it off quite as good as you! This looks incredible and might I add incredibly BAD ASS. I cannot wait to see how it turns out for the wedding.

    ps. i also love the colors. do you have light pink in it?

    1 agrees
  2. je t'adore!!!

    my hair is funky/razor/pixie-ish & i have fallen in love with the idea of wearing a faux flower w/a mini birdcage veil, however i was unsure of how it would turn out.

    you have given me major confidence in being able to pull the look off b/c you look ravishing!!

    kudos, my dear.

  3. Thanks so much, you guys!! Esp. to the girls who said badass :D totally going for the tough/pretty thing.

    @Coco: I'm sure you could absolutely pull it off, and yes, there is light pink in my hair. It was white with purple tips, but it faded into pink!

  4. ROCK ON. I contemplated a 'hawk, but my baby-fine-hair plus June-in-Austin-humidity made it a no go. SO JEALOUS! (all caps totally a necessity there.)

  5. OMG, love! (Dress is gorgeous too!) I think my hair probably was too thick & wavy for this to have worked even when it was that short, but it looks PERFECT on you. =)

  6. love this! it looks amazing on you.

    sadly, i learned in high school how hard it is to be punk rock when your hair is mega-curly…. *sigh*

  7. I love this whole look. It totally looks like really tough runway hair.

    I can't wait to see pictures of the event!

  8. *dropped jaw*
    AMAZING!
    What's great, is that your hair looks really soft,
    despite what i can only imagine must have been oodles of hairspray/gel…
    it's like cotton candy… mmm

    and where'd you get your hair flower?
    it's so preeeeetty!

  9. also, you have the cutest nose ever!
    now i will stop ogling your pictures…

  10. Oh, how quickly people forget! Punk girls wore this kind of hair when I was in high school. She looks like Aimee Mann circa 1988–which is not, by any means, a bad thing.

  11. I said it on the OBBT but I'll say it again…I might be in love with your head. hahaha. So awesome, so rocker chic.

  12. @Liset: Aww, thanks so much :) It's really all Rachel (my stylist)'s work!

    The hair flower/fascinator is from etsy seller cierramontes, who, btw, is so incredibly nice to work with, it's ridiculous :) I don't think I've ever dealt with anyone on etsy who wasn't.

  13. So awesome! I love how light it still looks, unlike many fauxhawks. Love the whole outfit too, rock on!

  14. This totally made my day yesterday. You look amazing! You have inspired me! It looks so good! (totally bad ass! totally!) If my dress were different I would be doing this. Instead one of my BMs is willing to do something like this for me for our rehearsal. Mwha-ha-ha! Thank you! You rock!

  15. wow!! Im so glad tro see this up, Im doing a fauxhawk on our day as well! I wasnt sure if I was likeing it in my mind but after seeing your pic and how amazing you look, I am now sold on it ^_^ thanks a boodle!! YAY

  16. wow i absolutely love this. i'm not getting married until april 2012 (18 year engagment) and was trying hard how to describe the look i want. i want a kind of dishevelled fairy / victorian underworld theme. look forward to seeing your pics!!

  17. You know, I've seen the post with the dress, and the post with the hair, and I really liked both. But the two together….*swoons*.

    I'm sure her hub will too!

  18. wow Avalon, you're beautiful. And that hair! Awesome. :D

  19. I LOVE it! My fiancee has a mohawk and I love it too! But my mom said she hopes we look "like adults" on our wedding day and I know she means no mohawks. *sad*

  20. I don't even have words for how amazing you look. Gorgeously tough.

  21. oh miss avalon, you look amazing! i love it!!! i think you (& everyone else we know) know how much of girly-girl/princess i am, especially when it comes to weddings.. but even *i* think that this suits you PERFECTLY and cannot wait to see more of it!!!!!!! GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!! :) (and now i am going to go search out that etsy seller you linked for the hair flower!)

  22. I was looking at your wedding pics and they are amazing. I'm getting married on Halloween and I was just curious, since i'm really pale, what makeup do you use? I can't seem to fine anything pale enough for me. The closest I have found is MAC's lightest color but even that is a shade to dark.
