Avril Lavigne's pretty punk style has always been a major source of fashion inspo to me, from her ability to dress up a hoodie to her flawless, glossy, and straight locks. Her spunky songs are pretty fun, too, but it's Avril Lavigne's hair that's had me all sorts of fangirling for the past decade or so.
Through the highs and lows of her lengthy career, Lavigne's punk-influenced, often black-clad style remains aces. Her look is consistent and she has her signatures, which she plays with, adding feminine touches to a black ensemble featuring combat boots or pairing glossy hair with loose ties. To me, she put tomboy chic on the map when she burst onto the scene.
But it's Avril Lavigne's hair that I dig the most. Her coif is thick and enviable and few starlets can work a stick-straight 'do like she can. She always manages to add some touch or element that takes her strands to the next level. We've seen Lavigne with practically every color (from her natural dirty blonde to bright green and pink) and practically every style (from long and sleek to a half-shaved 'do) — and all of it's been fabulous. Here are 13 times that Avril Lavigne was #HairGoals.
Lavigne has a lot of hair. But even with all the length and volume, her bedhead tresses usually appear effortless. Like so.
2. '70s Inspo
Lavigne often does stick-straight and center-parted strands, giving off a '70s boho vibe. Her golden locks always frame her face.
Her romantic tendrils are so princess-like. She doesn't pump this look often, but when she does, it's super sweet.
Lavigne has never been shy about mixing multiple colors into her golden 'do. She had some pink and black strands worked in here for depth and dimension.
5. White Hot
Her signature shade is usually honey or golden. But when she has gone with a white blonde and platinum look, the result was this: BOMBSHELL!
6. Looong Layers
In the '00s, this type of pin straight hair was all the rage, and no one did it quite like Avril.
7. Looong Pink Layers
Lavigne likely gets a boost from extensions, but her long and razored layers also get a boost when she adds a shot of pink.
8. Always Rapunzel
Through her career, Avril Lavigne has been Rapunzel-like. She's never gone with a shocking pixie, a major chop, or anything that could only be considered medium length. Once you've found a look you love, it never hurts to stick with it.
9. The Undercut
Let's be honest. There is a lot going on with this look. It's green. It's pink. It's a deep side part. It's an undercut. But somehow, A. Lavigne makes this mish-mash work. I'm in awe.
10. Like A Cali Blonde
Lavigne is Canadian but she often goes Cali blonde with her hair. It's like a luxe, glossy, prestige shield.
Two-toned hair, with a blonde top and black under layer, was also big in the late '00s. Of course Lavigne rocked this style.
12. Flawless Bedhead
The singer has mastered the "rolled out of bed" look. Her hair is always shiny and never looks doused in dry shampoo, even when she's bed headin'.
13. More Pink Drama
Doesn't that shock of hot pink in the front add so much drama without seeming like she is trying to be all "Look at me and my pink hair?"
Oh, and here's an Avril Lavigne hair look we don't see often! A ponytail. She often uses her hair like a curtain, which I totally relate to.
Avril Lavigne has one of the best heads of hair. I have always admired her locks for their shine, straightness, and her fearlessness when it came to adding punk rock elements.
