10 Shaved Hairstyles for Women

Here are 10 ways to wear shaved hairstyles for women:

1. Pixie Undercut

We love this edgy pixie cut!

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. Women with thick hair often find that an undercut can offer some relief from overwhelmingly thick strands.

2. Long Hair with a Shaved Side

Try this asymmetrical style.

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.

3. Long Buzz

Consider a buzzcut.

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.

4. Dyed Undercut

Play with color!

If you’ve had an undercut for a while now, give it new life with a new color. Shaved hairstyles for women are more fun with 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 Nexxus Color Assure Rebalancing Shampoo and Nexxus Color Assure Restoring Conditioner.

5. Shaved-in Designs

Add cool designs to spice up your shaved sides.

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 TRESemmé TRES Two Mega Firm Control Gel to your hair as you mold and define your shape.

6. Colorful Strands

7. Box Braids

Who says you can’t create a combination style? Pair your box braids with a shaved portion of hair for a super edgy look. This is a great way too add instant volume to your hair and play with edgier components to add some personality to your look.

8. Braided Bun

Show off your shaved sides with a braided knot.

Pull your hair up to show off your shaved sides while keeping your hair out of your face. This combination style is great because if you don’t want to show off your shaved hair, you can always pull the braids down and hide that portion of the style.

9. Undercut Top Knot

If you usually throw your hair up and go and you’re looking for a way to add some interest to a standard style, consider this easy upgrade. This is another look that is as flexible as your mood! Wear your hair up to show off your shaved strands or down to hide them when you feel like it.

10. Side Shave
