Since its release in November, Netflix’s Wednesday has become one of the hottest cultural phenomenons at the moment. The series has transformed Jenna Ortega into the latest “It Girl”, and subsequently, the goth glam aesthetic has become a massive trend. There has been no shortage of moody cuts, darker hair colors, and black lace hair accessories. With goth glam clearly here to stay, we rounded up some hair inspo for any stylist looking to help their clients tap into their dark side. Ahead are a few of our favorite goth glam hair looks right now!
LA Hairstylist Sami Knight absolutely killed the Wednesday Addams-inspired trend with this spiky updo. However, unlike the typical slicked-back spiky bun we have seen as a recent ode to the 2000s, this style included rounded ends, creating an almost medusa-like look.
Black Dip-Dyed Ends
If you are someone who likes to experiment with color, try embracing this more goth-inspired version of the concept. The black dyed ends are a unique and bold look that can be achieved with either permanent dye, or for less commitment, a color depositing conditioner.
Edgy Short Cut
Got a client who’s sick of their current hair and wants a drastic change? Convince them to opt for a dark short pixie cut. This edgy style is certainly a modern and mature twist on the goth aesthetic. Also, short hair will help draw attention to any sort of dramatic eyeliner or soft-goth makeup look that they may be experimenting with!
If you are looking for an elevated style that embodies soft goth glam, look no further than a classic braided updo. This look can be done a variety of different ways depending on the occasion, however, the more braids and loops the better!
Of course, if you are truly feeling inspired by Ortega’s portrayal of the classic Addams family character, it may be time to experiment with bangs.Her fringe look has already inspired many, and it’s certainly not too late to hop on this trend!
