A short bowl haircut is a 'do that brings back often unwanted memories of childhood hairstyles you thought were long forgotten. But, before you write it off completely, you might be interested to know that the bowl cut is back and it's actually pretty cool.

It's essentially a super sleek alternative to a piecey pixie with a smooth, polished finish and a chic geometric edge.

Could you rock the look?

This androgynous cut certainly isn't for the fainthearted, as short cuts go, it's one of the most eye-catching and edgy looks around. It looks particularly striking with a monotone hair colour and super-blunt ends. Like with blunt bangs, however, the success of this look all depends on the length. A longer bowl cut is often more flattering as draws the eye more toward the center of your face, as opposed to the forehead. Also, super short bowl cuts are the kind most of us hope to leave far behind us in the 90s.

Not for everyone: If you have a very round face or coarse hair, you probably want to reconsider - a bowl cut will only make your face appear rounder and will be hard to manage with coarse hair.

Fight the frizz

The bowl cut's nemesis always has been and always will be frizz. Misbehaved strands can transform this look from model chic to accidental Sesame Street character, so it's best to style hair sleek from the get-go.

How to style: After towel-drying, apply a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly and blow-dry. Angle the air flow downwards so that hair dries as straight as possible. Once dry, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray for ultra-sleek results and to protect against the volumizing effects of humidity!
