What’s old is new and in again! That’s the story with the undercut, a style the beauty blog POPSUGAR acknowledged has long been rocked by women of color and names one of the trendiest of the year. It’s a style for every hair type, texture, and length that adds flair, flavor, and fun at every angle.
Some refer to the undercut as a hair tattoo because, over the years, it has become far more than a close-cropped sectional haircut. This type of cut has evolved into pure hair artistry with creative designs and precision angles. It can be subtle, over-the-top, sophisticated, classic, modern, or downright edgy. You can go RiRi-style, Halle-style or your style. Either way, the undercut is both delicious and daring at the same time.
Here’s a look at some of our favorites rocking the undercut, several cuts we love, and a few reasons why the style is taking the beauty and fashion industries by storm.
If you’re considering the undercut, consult with your hairstylist. Bring in pictures so that he/she can see what you have in mind. A few words of caution. The undercut is not a hair transformation to try at home. It requires the expertise (and precision) of a trained professional. Are you ready to rock the undercut? Vote in our poll below.
