Would you try an undercut?

An undercut hairstyle is perfect for anyone who wants a look with more than one texture and/or is a little afraid of getting a buzz cut... so quite a lot of people covered there. Undercuts come in many different shapes and can be shaved to fit all kinds of different features and face shapes.

If you haven't tried one already, a faded cut would be a great place to start when choosing an undercut. The length on top is cut so that it tapers down to an increasingly close shave, quite literally fading out. A more literal undercut, however, involves a longer section on top of the head and then shave areas directly underneath.

How to style

Once you've made the leap (or asked your stylist very nicely to do it for you) it's important to understand just how to style your new haircut. Depending on your personal style, length of the hair on top and its natural texture, there are all kinds of options open to you.

Slicked back: For a classic polished look, you can't go wrong with a slicked back hairstyle. To achieve this, start by blow-drying the hair back away from your face, then apply some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty back through. Add more putty as needed and finish by combing the hair or simply smoothing it into place with your hands.

Relaxed and disheveled: If you want a look with a little more movement, try a low-key tousled style. Starting with dry hair, work in a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum with your fingertips. Don't worry about making the hair look really uniform, you want to get a done/undone kind of style. Keep adding more gum then tousle and scrunch with your hands to finish.
