5 Superhero Hairstyles You Can Absolutely Get in Singapore

Published on Apr 10, 2019

It takes a lot to be a superhero, especially a female one.

You've got to be smart, compassionate, strong, be lean and voluptuous, get a killer costume and yes, stunning hair that can take it all - whether they are flying into the sky or engaging in fist fights with ultra villians. Yes, we know its all in the movies but aren't you amazed by how good they always look while they're running or at the end of a fight scene?

Ultra inspired after watching two female superhero films lately, we thought.. why not think about the kind of superhero hair we can have right in Singapore? So here we are... counting down to the 5 favourite hairstyles on female superheroes!

1. Wonder Woman

Who says that superheroes can't be feminine?

Gal Gadot proves that you can be a strong yet feminine female superhero with her portrayal of Wonder Woman. 

A major contributor to her feminine look is her long luscious curls that balances her strong battle costume.

It may not be practical to wear what she wears on a daily basis but you can certainly get curls as luscious as hers right in Singapore.

2. Captain Marvel


Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel isn't the stereotypical female superhero who tends to look voluptuous the way Gal Gadot looks in Wonder Woman. She is strong, athletic and doesn't give a darn about appealing to males, because that's not what her quest is about; she will eventually be the one who save the world in Endgame after all. 

It doesn't mean that she looks all masculine. Captain Marvel's hair is designed to be ash blonde with just that bit of curl for that right balance of femininity and strength.

It is not that easy for us Asians to pull the colour off as it requires quite a bit of bleaching.

However, the shoulder length big wave lob is definitely good enough for us girls in Singapore if it can be look as resilient as it did while having fights with Yon-Rogg.

3. Alita


Alita Superhero

Finally, an Asian represent! 

It's always difficult emulating Western superheroes because their style and colours can be so dramatically different from ours. For the first time, Alita breaks that stereotype with a small, cute exterior strong enough to break even the strongest of cyborg villians.

As she is adapted from Japanese manga, we're not surprised to find her style partially inspired by Japanese trends.

Alita is given a blunt bob that show a bit of her defiance and personality beneath her cute exterior. If you identify that, this can be a hairstyle you can consider going for as well?

You may choose to keep your hair black but honestly, it will work with any other colour as well.

4. Black Widow


Black Widow Hairstyle

Maybe it's her chin-length lady haircut, the fiery ginger colour, or intense gaze, Scarlett Johanssen definitely looks badass as Black Widow.

Her solo movie is coming soon, so before everyone jumps on the black widow bandwagon, why not try her signature copper hair colour?

Her ginger is actually very close to this year's hair colour of the year: living coral.

The pink undertones makes the colour a little sweeter than what you see on Scarlett Johannsen itself, which may just be necessary to sand off her rough edges.

5. Storm

And then, there must always be that one superhero character who must carry off that suave masculine look and that is none other than Storm!

With her short pixie cut and all-black emsemble, Storm looks all assertive and strong - a perfect hairstyle to try if you need that extra confidence boost at work!

A pixie cut is liberating in a way that few other cuts are.

If you are even more adventurous, you can even try the shorter buzz cut like the one below!
