10 of the Coolest Girl Hairstyles in Anime
Very often, the first thing we notice about an Anime character is its unusual hair. The more we watch Anime of course, the more we tend to ignore how unnatural some characters’ hair colors and shapes are. But no matter how used to these flamboyant hairstyles we may be, we can still appreciate their style.
Anime girls in general, as the pop culture icons they are, tend to wear trendy hairstyles that any teenager girl would love to try on. Some wear extremely long hair, some others quite short and many schoolgirls have twintails because you just can’t go wrong with twin tails.
However, there are dozens of different girl hairstyles in Anime that range from the most common and conservative to the wildest and most unusual ones. So today we will explore the coolest girl hairstyles in Anime. Enjoy!
10. Anime Girls with Short Hair
Short hair is of course a broad category that encompasses a virtually unlimited amount of hairstyles, but in the world of Anime girls rarely have short hair, so every time we meet a short haired girl it is indeed a big deal.
Some short haired beauties are Nana from Nana, Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan and Riko Aida from Kuroko no Basuke.
In general, the short hairstyle gives these girls a certain tomboyish look. It may also be used to reflect their strong personality, as both Mikasa and Riko are fierce and independent girls.
Some girls give the short hair a little twist to make it a bit more feminine by wearing long sideburns. Such is the case of Hinata Hyuuga from Naruto and Hinata Hino from Mirai Nikki.
Another popular short hairstyle is the short bob or chin-length bob with bangs, like the one Hana Midorikawa from Prison School wears. This hairstyle gives her a rather serious and conservative look.
9. Anime Girls with Hair Buns
There are several types of hair buns, from the ballerina buns and the topknot buns, to the messy buns and the sock buns. A girl may choose a type of hair bun depending on the situation and whether she needs it to be practical or to make her look sexy and sophisticated.
This hairstyle can be both classy and convenient, and by looking at some Anime girls who wear their hair in buns, we can see it reflects certain aspects of their nature. Usagi Tsukino (Serena) from Sailor Moon, Kagura from Gintama and May-chan from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood are some of those pretty and laidback girls.
8. Anime Girls with Ponytails
The ponytail is surely the most common and simple hairstyle ever. This doesn’t mean it deserves any less credit than the rest of the hairstyles on this list. The ponytail is a convenient and practical hairstyle that can be used for doing physical activities or to appear formal and classy.
A long ponytail gives a feeling of youthfulness, like the one that wears Mion Sonozaki from When They Cry. Also, Winry Rockbell from FMA wears a ponytail to keep her long hair from bothering her while she works long hours on automail parts.
Another beauty who wears a ponytail, a short one in this case, is Mizuho Kazami from Please Teacher. Her short ponytail gives her a chic and elegant look to enhance her sexy teacher image.
