men’s hair trends: the undercut

The undercut has reigned over the past few years as a mainstay among the industry crowd. The key to this style is seeing the disconnection from the top layer to the sides.  This haircut made its debut in the 1920s and 30s, and resurrected with the hit show Boardwalk Empire on HBO.  To enhance this look, the best hair product is Bumble and Bumble’s Semisumo, because it’s pliable and gives the hair an incredible shine.

My co-worker Alex was inspired by a recent photo of Michelle Williams, and wanted to chop her already platinum blonde locks off. She knew I would be the one to do it- and here is the finished result. I love the way a small amount of product can add just enough texture and create dimension to her single-tone hair.

A pixie is a timeless and iconic haircut.  What makes each one special?  Having the right artist that understands face shape to accentuate the individual’s features, and tailor it to their personality.

Launchpad Magazine recently put together a slideshow, Pixie-Perfect: 10 Best Pixie Haircuts of All Time.  I was inspired by this article and selected a few of my favorites to highlight below.
