Cool Asymmetrical Haircut Ideas For Every Gal
To help inspire you to try out an asymmetrical cut, we’ve collected some of the top ways to wear this look:
1. Classic Asymmetrical Hair
Let’s kick things off with a classic asymmetrical haircut. Easily distinguishable by the varying lengths on either side of the head, the hair is often also stacked at the back to emphasize the angular cut, providing loads of extra depth and dimension, too!
Bonus: You’ll also be pleased to know that this look requires minimal effort when styling making it great for girls wanting to just get up and go.
2. Edgy Undercut
Do you feel that asymmetrical haircuts are a bit ‘been-there-done-that? Here’s an easy fix: Give the look a modern and fun update like adding an undercut into the mix. What makes this look so great is that you can get the best of both worlds. When you want to hide your undercut, you can use the longer section of your hair to conceal the shaved section. That’s pretty smart styling if you ask us!
3. The Curly Crop
Asymmetrical hair ideas aren’t meant to be only worn with straight hair. If you have naturally curly hair or prefer to wear asymmetrical short hair looks with curls, opt for a style like the above. Ask your stylist to cut your hair long enough that you’re able to try out different curly looks without compromising too much length.
4. The Subtle Asymmetrical Haircut
Bold short asymmetrical hairstyles aren’t quite for everyone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the fun with a slightly more subtle take on the trend! This long bob has been gently graduated at the back with only a small distinction in length on either side of the look—it may be a tiny change, but it certainly packs a punch in the style department! What’s more, you can definitely spruce up the look when you want to try something new. Add a twist like above, or a fun accent braid.
