Context: “Hi,” chirped a girl beside me. I lifted my head to look at her. She was pretty in a ‘not in your face’ kind of way, she had short black hair with some blue streaks which she had spiked out stylishly, and big brown eyes. She was smiling a friendly smile.

What does it mean? Does it fashionably or not cool?

I'd take it very literally. She had stylishly formed her hair into spikes that stood out from her head.

  • Perhaps something like this, though whether that is "stylish" or not is a matter of opinion.

  • @tobyink: Snap! Actually, yours is better than the one I just cheekily shoved into your text. Delete mine or change it if you like. Commented Feb 15, 2014 at 21:40
  • Well, I`ll think about it, but thanks that explained to me what this phrase is mean.
