Blue hair doesn’t turn heads anymore – and if you don’t have a sharp cut to match an edgy colour, you’re living in the year 2000. The bold cut is back again – and bigger than it’s been since the ’90s, with Victoria Beckham’s spiced-up undercut.
This time, the trends are timeless, but equally polarising. To ensure that we don’t regret the risk, Gibson Loong of Shawn Cutler, walks us through on what to request at the salon. Crew-style cuts have well and truly cut ties with that whole “mumsy” vibe in sleek fashion.
“Short, edgy styles are coming back,” says Gibson. “They appeal because the cut usually contains many elements and can be worn in different ways.”
Shorter styles generally complement both oval and heart-shaped faces, but they are definitely not out of the question for longer faces too.
Zendaya’s cool pixie hairdo has lots of graduation at the back, with more length toward the front.
Getting your hair cut short is a really personal thing, so be sure to bring lots of picture references of styles you love to the salon. Showing, not telling, works better in most cases.
