Getting a short haircut is the perfect way to make a beauty statement, so why not go all out and try something really bold? If you're feeling brave, this messy undercut might be the perfect style to try.

A tale of two textures

The buzz cut sides create a sharp contrast with the longer hair on top which is what makes this look so interesting. Well, that and the fact you'll save a LOT on shampoo. The lengthier section can be styled wavy, tousled or stick straight, giving you more styling options than you might expect from such a short crop.

1/ How to style it

One of the best things about an undercut is that it's very easy to style. Hello, extra time in bed! All you need to do is warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum on your fingertips, then work it through the long hair on top. Scrunch, tousle and ruffle as you go to create texture, then shape with your hands to finish.

If you want a polished, slicked back look, use a comb to smooth the hair over after applying the gum evenly throughout the top section.

2/ Maintenance

An undercut is quick and easy to take care of on a day-to-day basis, but it does need regular trims to keep the sides tight and the hair on top at just the right length. Depending on how fast your hair grows, you should get it cut every 2-4 weeks. This sounds like a lot, but you may find that you only need to trim the sides this often.

What do you think? Is a statement undercut the style for you?
