The Female Undercut: Long Hair Edition

Because sometimes you just need a bit of edge!

One of the coolest haircuts of all time is the female undercut: long hair edition. Giving you the best of both worlds, this haircut blends long strands with a partially shaved style. The good news about a trend like this is that you can create it with any hair type: Pair your undercut with waves, curls, straight hair, natural texture or even braids!
