Given his facial features and thick mane, Bill tried some of the classic hairstyles.

Evolution of Bill Kaulit’s Hairstyles

The Early Years

Yyoung Bill Kaulitz sported a majestic mane of dark, long hair with bangs. His style was emo-meets-scene, which was basically the uniform of coolness in the early 2000s. Bill didn’t just wear the style; he owned it.

Blonde Years

Bill went blonde, and boy did it work! The mid-2000s saw his hair getting spiked and tousled, like a rockstar who just rolled out of bed looking effortlessly fabulous. The international stardom? Just a blonde perk.

Pink Years

Then came the pink avalanche. In the early 2010s, Bill painted his locks pink and opted for quiffs and pompadours, making Elvis probably give him a nod of approval from the great beyond. Talk about being a pink-tastic trendsetter!

Recent Hairstyles

Fast forward to recent times and Bill’s hair has seen more shades than a color wheel. From blue to green, long to short – he’s tried it all. Currently, he’s rocking the short spiky look that screams both chic and “I might play in a garage band”. Bill Kaulitz, the chameleon of hairstyles, keeps us guessing what’s next!

What Was Bill Kaulitz’s Signature Hairstyle?

Bill Kaulitz’s signature hairstyle, particularly in the early days of his career with Tokio Hotel, was the “Lion’s Mane“. This was characterized by long, voluminous, dark hair with backcombed locks and dreadlock-like twists.

The look was a combination of punk rock and gothic styles, and it quickly became synonymous with his image during the mid-2000s.

The hairstyle stood out and helped to establish Bill Kaulitz as not just a musician, but also a fashion and style icon among his fans and in the media.

Lion’s Mane

In the early days of Tokio Hotel, a young Bill Kaulitz sported what can only be described as a lion’s mane. His long, voluminous hair was characterized by dark, backcombed locks and dreadlock-like twists. The look was punk rock meets gothic, and it became a signature style for him during this period.

Sleek and Straight

As we moved toward the end of the 2000s, Bill started to opt for a more polished look. His hair was straightened and styled in a sleek manner, often accompanied by side-swept bangs. This look was more subdued compared to his previous style but still made a statement.

Spiked Mohawk

Bill’s style took a dramatic turn when he decided to chop his locks and go for a daring spiked Mohawk. The sides of his head were shaved, while the center was styled upwards in sharp spikes. This look was edgy and showcased his rebellious spirit.

Platinum Blonde

In the early 2010s, Bill took a leap into the world of blonde hair. His platinum blonde locks were usually styled in a quiff or left loose and tousled. This change was quite a departure from his previous dark-haired looks and gave him a more ethereal appearance.

Undercut and Top Knot

Embracing the trends of the mid-2010s, Bill adopted an undercut with a top knot. This look was modern and chic, with shaved sides and long hair on top that could be tied back into a fashionable top knot.

Sleek Black Bob

Returning to his dark roots, Bill sported a sleek black bob around 2016. The hair was cut at chin length and was immaculately styled. This elegant look brought a sense of sophistication to his style.

Shoulder-Length Waves

As we approached the end of the decade, Bill grew out his hair into shoulder-length waves. This look had a bohemian vibe and was often accentuated with hats or headbands.

Modern Mullet

In recent years, Bill Kaulitz has embraced the modern mullet. This retro-inspired hairstyle features shorter hair at the front and sides, with longer locks at the back. He has managed to modernize this classic 80s style, proving his ability to reinvent and remain relevant in the world of fashion and music.

  2. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  3. I have to say that I honestly thought that this was a girl. I didn’t know anything about Bill Kaulitz until I saw him on the website. His hair styles are awesome but I do think he needs to look a little more manly. But that is just my opinion

  4. Well, you can’t just snap your fingers and make yourself look more manly, I guess you’ll just have to wait a few years untill he’s older! Lol he could lose the eye shadow but there are lots of rock singers that where it that look more manly. Mainly he is just very young looking. Lol to be honest I thought he was a girl at first too!

  5. ehhh.. come on half of u guys think thats a girl? its a god damn guy! and he is hot! …. and he got fking cool hair style….!!! fking hot man… fking hot!

  6. its not his hair style, its his face shape or sumthin hthat makes him look so dang feminine!!!!

  7. All you who are making fun of Bill, I'd like to see you earn yourself thousands of adoring fans and awards, and everything else Bill Kaulitz has gotten accomplished.
    He is a man, and a very attractive one at that.

  9. great site! thanks for categorizing and discussing all these popular hairstyles 🙂

    BTW, ' emo' is a codeword among ' emos.' It means ' spoiled teenager that thinks things are tough,' and ' i'm a puss.' it's really a pretty sophisticated definition for an abbreviated word. the previous generation of ' emos' were referred to as ' doomers.'

  10. Male or female, would it matter? Bill is beautiful, from the inside out. He's a very sweet young man and I'm not really sure why so many people feel the need to yell GAY or FAG! Even if he was, why would it matter. That's not the topic being discussed here.

    As for Bill's hair, he does amazing things with it. I'm surprised that you haven't included his newest hairstyle, the dreadlocks with white, synthetic dreads for accents. VERY striking and gorgeous. Thanks for profiling him, even if some people reading are not mature enough to deal with Bill's look.

  11. Bill's looks are really AWSOME!!
    I have to agree. Would it really matter if Bill were male or female??? He was discovered at a young age and why call him a f*g just because he is young, wears eyeliner, and has highlights?

    Bill is just an amazing guy with kick ass hair and looks.

  12. The guys who think Bill is gay are total idiots.
    Unless your gay you wouldn't care what guys think about you. So many chicks are crazy for this hot guy

  13. veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy catttttttttttttttttttttt o my goodddddddddddddd
    The guys who think Bill is gay are total idiots [02]
    i love bill kaulitzzzzzzzzzz

  14. is he like billie jean from michael jackson??
    when every1 thinks its a boy it actually is a girl because michael sais so?..

  15. I sincerely Thought This was a girl until a fan of them told me its not and i still had doubts maybe he has 2 sex´s =S

  16. omg i love bill kaulitz sooo…. much and his hair is AWSOOMMEE!! he is so sexxy lol and if you dont like him you can leave your coments to your self OK!lozzzzzzerz :)!!

  17. lolol. Go to Japan, you'll find hair like his EVERYWHERE. 'Specially with those Visual Kei rock bands. Oh, by the way, I wonder why they called it TOKIO Hotel. And why Bill's sporting a very typically asian style, adopted from the emo style in the 80's (around). HMM. Coincidence? I don't know, but you have to admit most emo styles today resemble the asians' way too much. lol.
    Yah, and, Bill is obviously a guy. lol. I've seen plenty of pretty-boys, Nothing new here.

  18. People when are you going to get over yourselves and realize that this is in fact a man. We've all seen feminine men in the world, it happens. Deal with it.

    Also, to everyone calling him Gay and a fag: This "fag" has more ladies after him then any of you will have in your entire lives. You're just insulting yourselves really…

    And to the Comment above, The band is Called Tokio Hotel because they have never been to Tokyo (Tokio in German Spelling) Japan and have always wanted to go, it was an ambition of theirs so to speak, and Hotel comes from the fact that they practically live in hotels due to touring all the time. Bill has stated that he was inspired by old vampires (not the twilight kind mind you) and David Bowie from the Labyrinth for his hair styles.

  19. He does not NEED to use less makeup. He does not need anthing. Bill kaulitz is a unique individual who has his own style. Sure, he looks like girl but that is his lifestyle, and who are we to judge that based only on appearances. Oh yeah he needs to lose the makeup, no, u need to lose your quick judgement against this wonderful man. And whats with the gay comments? You heard him say that he was not gay a million times, but you think he “hasnt come out of the closet yet” he is spontaneous and joyful and if he was gay he probably would have said something by now. U dont tell bill kaulitz what he is, he does. Lethim be himself and stay out of his personal business.

  20. good descriptions. but one thing “if this website wil lread it” sorry for rudeness but i mean it. you need to add his newest hairstyle to the lsit. he’s got dreads this year which are black with the blond highlights. alsot a few years ago hes had a mohawk/fo hawk combo hairstyle not sure how to describe. but you need ot list these. but good lsits and good ways to help.

  21. Lol I just read more comments than posts I’ve seen on facebook lol I was playing guitar hero then played this song (which was bad a**) Monsoon then I looked it up on YouTube saw him like on YouTube bla bla bla searched if he was a guy or a girl ( dude I thought he was a girl so basically I think he’s hot lol) and well I read this and it was very interesting ang way back to the subject… U guys are just jealous if ur calling him gay or a fag cuz face the facts u guys want to be like him he’s got more girls chasing after him than Justin beaver or beaber or how ever u spell it, he is awesome his hair is awesome so u guys suck it if u think he sucks cuz u guys probably are beabier fans
