CLEO (Malaysia) - - THE BEAUTY BOX -

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.
