There isn't any particular rule on how should Spank/Pop kei hairstyle look,but based on the pictures there are two types:

1.Super flashy and colorful hairstyle-for more fun and 80's party themed look


2.Cute bun,pigtail,straight/curly or ponytail hair-Usually mixed with 2 colors(highlights),ombre or colored bangs,but you can wear your natural hair. (The most important part are the accessories actually,so you don't have to worry if you can't afford a wig or changing your hair color)






9.Make Up

Ok,so the make up is the easiest part. There isn't any strict rule about the make up,but keep it simple and cute. The main part of your make up could be the color of your eye shadow or lipstick. Use soft colors,but on the eyes you can use more flashy colors...But in the end just keep in mind that it should match your outfit ^^

10.Final Summation

When you are wearing this style don't care what others think.Be yourself and be happy. If you do have some confidence problems put your earphones in and play some uplifting music to get you in the mood and after few minutes you will be strutting through the city like you are on a catwalk...P.S. You don't have to strictly  follow the rules,you can always add your touch and play with the fashion ^^ ...
