This is easy: the undercut/sidecut/bilevel cut. It's had a number of names over the years. Most of you bloggers have it, and it's easy to see why. It's as easy to take care of as short hair, but it's got the benefits of long hair. It goes with every style and with every color. I've NEVER seen this hairstyle look bad on anyone. It's the easiest haircut to DIY too. and you don't have to style it!
|me in college, over a decade ago. my acne's gotten better, but otherwise I don't seem to age, lol. A blessing and a curse.|
Now 10+ years later, I've got it again. My hair is incredibly thick and coarse and, moreover, it's curly at the temples. If I want a straight sleek look, no amount of straight-ironing will ever help. If I want long hair, I can't have it since it just starts dreading itself. But of course, we all want the hair we can't have. The undercut helps. See, this is what it looks like parted down the middle.
Yeah, that's how thick my hair is...it looks like a normal bob when literally half of my head is shaved. This is how I wear it to the office these days.
This is how it looks flipped over:
You'll notice that I left the shaved part my natural haircolor. It was kind of a challenge to think of a way to blend the white with the ash-brown...I opted for letting the roots show in the area adjacent to the shaved part, while keeping the area around the part white-blond:
BTW, for those of you DIYing this look, there's a lot of shitty advice on you tube. I recommend making VERY clean parts and putting all of the hair you DON'T want to cut off into a really tight ponytail. Then use electric clippers with a guard to shave the rest of your hair. The clippers won't cut off the hair pulled against your scalp in the ponytail.
