I dunno have a look at some music videos of the bands you like a find a haircut that suits you.
Go to the hairdressers with a picture and ask if they can try to copy it.
Might cost extra.

You have a Mg, I think in order to get a punk sound turn on the crushing overdrive.

You could also put in a Seymour Duncan Invader along with a Boss DS-1.

I don't know about Blink-182 and Sum 41, but I know the older Green Day sound was achieved with:

Guitar: mostly an old cheap Stratocaster copy with a Seymour Duncan JB model humbucker bridge pickup. Neck and middle pickups were almost never used. On a few oddball songs Billie Joe also used a customised Telecaster, another Strat copy, and a Gibson ES-135, all modified with a SD JB model humbucker in the bridge position.

Amp: a modified Marshall head and cab combo dubbed 'Pete'. The closest stock you can get to it is a Marshall Super Lead 100w. The exception is on the Nimrod album, where he mostly used a Fender Bassman amp.

Overdrive/Distortion: Billie Joe has only ever used the inherent overdrive generated by cranking his amp and the high-output pickup in his guitar. No pedals are used.

Picks: Billie Joe uses Dunlop Tortex .76 and .88 picks. His picking technique involves digging the pick very heavily (as Angus Young of AC/DC did), and using his shoulder for any strumming/chord playing, rather than his wrist. The trick is to hit with as much force as possible, basically. He also lets his thumb overhang the tip of the pick slightly so that every chord/strum he plays is picked with the pick first, and then hit by his thumb immediately after, effectively picking twice almost instantly.

Strings: Ernie Ball Super Slinky .09 strings on every guitar and every album.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
