Bowl Cut Ideas for the Modern and Edgy Pinay

Check out stylish ways to rock this short haircut.

When you think of short hair for womenpixie cuts and bobs usually come to mind. But have you ever considered getting a bowl cut? The traditional bowl cut is a short haircut that features straight bangs at the front while the rest of your hair has the same length (or almost 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 to determine how short the hair will be after cutting.

Now, it has evolved and has been given many different stylish updates. Here are some chic options.

5 Bowl Cut Styles to Try

1. Textured Bowl Cut

Layers keep your bowl cut from looking rigid and dated. Soft layers at the sides add a modern touch. They can also help add bounce when you blow-dry and brush the underside of your hair inward.
