  • When you don’t want your hairstyle to be overpowering, a top knot or a pony-tail works well
  • Think of accessorizing with a scarf as a headband for a more GN’R kind of vibe

Everything is bold and attention grabbing for this style. So for makeup, it has to be intense smokey eyes or thick cat-eye liners.

  • Instead of the usual thin eyeliner, draw a wider winged eye shape and fill in with the black liner for a bolder look
  • You can leave the lips subtle if the eyes are striking but if you don’t have the time for eye make-up, just color your lips bold red
  • And don’t forget your nails; paint them black or dark wine color

Lastly and importantly, any rocker chic look is incomplete without a strong and tough attitude. It spells fun, outgoing, confident and daring. Such girls enjoy being one of the boys yet have a strong feminine personality. Even with their cool, chilled out outlook, they won’t take any garbage.

So remember, being a rocker chic girl is not about expensive designer clothes. It is about bringing together your love for rock music culture and fashion. Be it simple graphic tees and ripped denims, anything that you wear, you wear it with confidence and with a rockstar attitude.
