This is bound to be the most requested look of spring and summer.
Spring is the time to try a bold new hairstyle. Between bedazzled braids and Rapunzel tresses in colors unimaginable, the menu of edgy hairstyles to try this season is super appetizing and it just got even better.
Creative undercuts are the latest addition to the buffet of styling options, and we’re completely enamored with the buzzy look.
Like most beauty trends, celebs have led the charge. We first spotted variations of this look on rappers like Salt-N-Pepa in the ’80s and since then, it’s evolved into an updated version spotted on other A-listers, like Rihanna during her Good Girl Gone Bad era.
While the cut involves shaving sections of your hair, the artsy lines are a versatile addition to all sorts of styles and lengths. If you’re itching to try something different, bookmark these amazing undercut and long hair combos, spotted on Instagram.
