Get buzzin’ with the lat­est hairdo: the un­der­cut tat­too

Still try­ing to muster the courage to go for an un­der­cut hairdo? Well, that’s so yes­ter­day. What’s mak­ing buzz is the un­der­cut tat­too! Don’t let the name mis­lead you — there’s no ink or nee­dle in­volved. It’s a hairdo achieved by buzzing off a por­tion of the mane, pop­u­lar choice be­ing the nape, and shav­ing a pat­tern us­ing an elec­tric ra­zor.

Re­cently, Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Halle Berry posted a pic­ture on In­sta­gram, flaunt­ing a lo­tus-shaped hair tat­too on her nape. Closer home, we spot­ted many stylis­tas rock­ing the trend. “It’s the coolest hair trend ever. I got it done above my neck. It’ll only be vis­i­ble when I want it to be, that is when I tie my hair up,” says Mita Singh, a 27-year-old ad­ver­tis­ing ex­ec­u­tive. “I love the con­trast of shaved hair and long hair,” says Riya Gandhi, a 22-year-old stu­dent.

Ex­perts give the trend a thumbs up. “Pat­terns can have vari­a­tions in length and colour to cre­ate some amaz­ing re­sults. And they grow out in a few weeks, so it’s a safe style to try,” says celeb hair­styl­ist Rod Anker, who, how­ever, adds a word of cau­tion. “It takes a dif­fer­ent skill to shave pat­terns; it’s not the same as cut­ting hair. The stylist needs to have a steady hand and the un­der­stand­ing of vis­ual aes­thetic,” he says.

Beauty ex­pert Naina Arora, too, raves about the trend. “Just shav­ing your head is passe. Un­der­cut tat­too adds con­trast to loose waves and is even more dar­ing than a pixie cut. A lot of young­sters visit our sa­lon to get this done, and keep com­ing back after a week or two for touch up,” she says. What’s the cost like? “Any­thing be­tween `5001,000. Touch up costs around `200-500,” adds Arora.
