Short and sweet

Short, undercut hairstyle

I’ve had my hair short since I was 15 and it really suits me. At the moment I’ve got a mohawk, but the sides aren’t shaven off. Recently I’ve been thinking about getting a buzz cut. However I don’t want people to think that I’m just doing it for attention. What advice can you give me?

Over the past year we’ve seen more female celebrities with shorter hairstyles. Miley Cyrus went for a daring cut, which highlights her features perfectly and really suits her. Most recently, we’ve seen Jennifer Lawrence swap her long locks for a pixie crop. On paper, you wouldn’t think this would work but she looks amazing. Although short hair is still a very bold statement to make, its become very much in line with current trends and isn’t seen as such a risky move. Use your hair as an extension of your personality – it’s a great way to add a little bit of edge to your look. You’ve found that short hair works for you so stick with it. Perhaps add in an undercut like Rihanna or Alice Dellal. An undercut would be a great way to change your look without being overly-bold!
