Undercut hairstyles always pack a stylish punch. The multiple textures and contrasting lengths are always guaranteed to stand out from the crowd however they're worn. We've selected five different undercut styles, all of which are right on-trend, so scroll through and get inspired!

Who knows, if you haven't tried one already, maybe an undercut is a new style worth considering...

Volume on top

With virtually buzz-cut sides, an undercut with all the length on top can be styled into a pomp. This is guaranteed to create a groomed, dapper look that is safe for work but still full of personality. To style, simply run a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty back through the hair on top and sculpt with your hands. Use only enough to hold the hair in place, and massage at the roots to lift the hair.

Slicked back

A slicked back style with an undercut is sharp and sophisticated. The contrast between the wet-look texture on top and the shaved sides is the key to making this approach work. As above, apply Hyper Fix Putty through the top section, only apply more of it, and run a comb back through it for precision.


If you want to get noticed, long hair with an undercut is a great way to do it. Depending on your natural hair texture, styling it is pretty simple. A tousled effect works really well and can be done in no more than a couple of minutes. Warm a little Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands then work it through the lengths of your hair in fast downward motions. Twist small sections of hair and finger-comb until it looks piecey and slightly unkempt.

Brushed forwards

Whether or not you're pro man bangs, an undercut with the top section brushed forward over the forehead is an undeniably stand-out look. To style, apply Deconstructing Gum as you would for a longer style then finger-comb the longer hair downwards.

Subtle side sweep

This hairstyle is great for anyone who likes a traditionally groomed side part but who also wants to update the style. To style, apply a small amount of Hyper Fix Putty and massage the roots on top. Then use a wide-tooth comb to gently direct the hair to one side.
