We’ve seen it all over. The undercut is coming back into style for girls and guys alike. You may be an undercut veteran yourself or interested in trying the look for the first time. After all, it’s attractive on so many other people, so it may be worth giving a chance. First, we’d like to say kudos to you for either finding a hairstyle that works for you or being willing to try something brand new. Here are a few ways you can rock an undercut and look great doing it!
Sometimes you may want to add a bit more flair to your undercut. Maybe your hair’s already naturally on the unruly side, but you still want to help it look managed. Sometimes a product as simple as a protective hair serum can help. Alternatively, maybe the limp look just isn’t your thing. In any case, you can always muss your hair forward to create a stylish swoop effect. This can take many forms, from a messy and high, slightly spiked look to a new spin on the Caesar cut. Of course, you can always rock a fringe, too! You just want to make sure you get them cut in a way that coordinates well with your facial shape and features.
The Traditional Look
As the old adage says, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” If you’re a newbie to the wide world of undercuts, you may want to start off with its usual interpretation: long on top and slicked back. This look works well for just about any occasion and is easy to care for with regular quality hair care.
It seems the ‘50s aesthetic is back in full swing, and the pompadour has made a modern resurgence! This look will take gel and maybe some protective hair serum to maintain, but we guarantee it’s easy to pull off! Just make sure to ask your stylist to leave you an ample amount of hair up top. The bigger the pompadour, the better (and sexier, if that’s the look you’re going for)!
Not all undercuts are made of gel and careful mussing. You may be interested in a more natural look, which is attainable through the help of layering the top portion of your hair. This is great for those with thin hair or who just want their undercut to look a bit more interesting and “bigger” without making it too long or using a ton of product. This look may prove to be a bit experimental for some, however. You may want to ask your stylist to play around a bit with length until you can both agree on what looks best.
The Top Knot
It seems these days it’s all about either the man bun or the undercut—but now guys are combining both for two times the charm! Naturally, you’ll need to keep the top section of your hair long. All that’s left is to bundle it up into a quick bun near the crown of your head. With the right amount of length, you’re guaranteed to look great!
While these aren’t all the ways you can rock an undercut, we hope this list of suggestions will give you some ideas. No matter which style you choose, be sure to invest in some hydrating shampoo to keep your look sleek and healthy. Also, don’t hesitate to contact us for more style suggestions and hair care tips!
