Which short cut gets your vote?

It's all very well and good to decide that you want a short haircut, that you're ready for the commitment, and that you just know you won't regret it, but it's also important to know which short cut you want. Two of our favorites are the undercut and the side-swept pixie.

The big question is, which one would you try?


The pixie cut has some iconic ambassadors, ranging from Twiggy to Jennifer Lawrence. This gorgeous crop can be styled in a multitude of ways and it can look wonderful with all kinds of textures.

Styling tip - To hold a smooth side-sweep in place, warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty in your hands then work it through your hair in the desired direction. The putty won't dry hard so you'll have the flexibility to reshape during the day if necessary.


A decidedly bolder look, the undercut is all about contrasting lengths. Though not for the fainthearted, this style can be softened with a messy, disheveled texture on top.

Styling tip - To create a perfectly imperfect finish, warm some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands then work it through the longer hair on top. Muss and tousle the hair as desired, then gently shape it with your hands to finish.

What do you think? Which short cut gets your vote?
