When you think of short hairstyles for women, pixie cuts and bobs usually come to mind. But have ever considered getting a bowl cut? The traditional bowl cut, mostly worn by men, is a short haircut that features straight bangs at the front with the rest of the hair having the same length all the way around Imagine a literal bowl plopped upside down on the head and the rim of the bowl being used as a guide on how short the hair will be after cutting.
Now, it has evolved and has been given many different stylish updates. Here are some really chic options.
5 Bowl Cut Styles to Try
1. Textured Bowl Cut
Keep your bowl cut from looking flat by scrunching it to give it texture. Then, give it a few spritzes of hairspray to make your tousled look last.
Here’s an interesting option that’s both chic and intense, so if you’re going for a bit of an edge, this will be right up your alley. This cut features bangs that are cut diagonally, giving your haircut a unique shape.
Editor’s tip: Don’t let frizz and flyaways let this look down, so prep your hair by washing it with your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner. These products have KERA10 Protein Complex to goes up to 10 layers deep into your hair to nourish it. They give your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash, like making your hair soft, smooth, and shiny, having an anti-frizz and anti-humidity formulation, and providing heat protection.
3. Layered Bowl Cut
Layers keep your bowl cut from looking rigid and dated. Soft layers on the sides add a modern touch. They can also help add bounce when you blow-dry and brush the underside of your hair inwards.
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair shiny by using Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight Ultra Conditioner. It gives your hair the benefits of three keratin products in one. This conditioner has keratin relaxers that tame frizz, keratin serum that revives hair from intense damage, and keratin essence that restores shine to dull hair.
4. Bob-Inspired Bowl Cut
If you’re not ready to go completely short, you can go for a long-short combination. This style features bangs that fall at eyebrow length and hair at the sides and back that’s just a little bit longer. Give it a slight scrunch for that messy-chic vibe.
5. Icy Blonde Hair
Try this light, almost-white hair color on your bowl cut to make it even edgier. You’ll definitely be a head-turner with this ‘do.
Editor’s tip: Keep your bleached hair from turning brassy by using TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo. It has purple formula that neutralizes brassy tones, so you get to enjoy your hair color for longer. It also has jojoba oil to keep your hair moisturized and shiny.
