1. Side-Shaved Hair

We love how much personality this hairstyle shows off. This edgy look combines a shaved side with some awesome tones of pink and blue. Having a very close crop on the shaved side puts all the attention on the rest of your hair and your awesome earrings. Just make sure to have a pair of clippers at home for regular trims.

2. Pixie Undercut

If you have very thick hair and love the pixie look, consider adding an undercut to your hair. It’ll allow you to have a sleek and modern look as you showcase hair that’s half shaven. To make the top section of your hair even sleeker, use a drop of serum, like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Encapsulate Serum. Thenblow-dry your hair to enjoy a sleek frizz-free hairstyle.

3. Long Hair with a Shaved Side

Love your long hair but also want to go short? Half shaved hairstyles may be the look for you. Try out this long hairstyle with a defined shaven side that’ll create instant depth and dimension to your look. We also love how shaving one side of your hair will give you a serious contrast as you define your new look.

4. Long Buzz

Short shaved hairstyles like buzz cuts are effortlessly edgy and easy to manage (seriously, your morning routine will be cut in half) as you place the attention on your face. Instead of going for a super short crop, try a longer buzz where you have some lengthy fuzz to show off. It gives you a little more hair to work with and can transition into a pixie in just a few weeks.

5. Dyed Undercut

If you’ve had an undercut for a while now, give it new life with a new color. Candy colored hair is always fun. You can go for two different bright colors, or you can just dye your undercut for a pop of your favorite color. Keep in mind that when you have two-toned hair you’ll definitely need to wash with a color-safe shampoo and conditioner, like the Nexxus Color Assure Rebalancing Shampoo and Nexxus Color Assure Restoring Conditioner.

6. Shaved-in Designs

Love your undercut but want to add in something a little more creative? Why not try a shaved-in design! There are so many designs to choose from outside the standard stacked straight lines (usually called steps). Choosing a design with mostly straight lines, like a spider web, will certainly help you to get even results. For a spiky look, apply a dime-sized amount of the TRESemmé TRES Two Mega Firm Control Gel to your hair as you mold and define your shape.
