Looking for the inspiration to try out a new, edgy hairstyle this summer? Here’s why you should try the side-shave!
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
Making the decision to lob off your locks and go for a women’s shaved haircut is probably one of the most daunting yet liberating decisions you’ll ever make when it comes to your hairstyle. Perhaps you’re looking to start over, you’ve gone through a major life transition or just want to get in on the trend? Whatever the case, it’s important to bear in mind there are a few considerations to mull over before sporting any one of these women’s buzz cut hairstyles.
Shaved haircuts simply aren’t for everybody, and despite what you might have heard, a shaved haircut has regrowth that needs to be managed every few weeks!
Here are some of the top factors to consider before you go for broke and shave it all off:
This is one of the key factors to keep in mind if you’re considering this big hairstyle transition. Some of the most common face shapes include oval, round, square, heart, triangle, diamond and oblong.As a general rule of thumb, oblong and oval-shaped faces suit a shaved head the least, with a few exceptions of course. If you have an unusually high crown or forehead, you may want to reconsider a buzz cut. However, if you’re dead set on trying out this look, try a super short pixie cut first and then assess how you feel before shaving it short.
Not to get all technical on you, but head symmetry is another important consideration. By this, we’re referring to the alignment of your most prominent features, i.e. your nose, ears, cheekbones and brows. If these features fit congruently with the shape of your face, there’s less chance a shaved head would not suit you.
If you’re shaving your head for the very first time, you may want to consider your natural skin tone and whether an exposed scalp will match the skin tone of your face and neck. If you’re naturally darker in skin tone, it’s likely that any flaws or scarring will be better concealed than if you have a lighter skin tone. Darker skinned ladies tend to have no issues with skin tone matching! The truth is that many women have a close attachment to their hair as a form of security and safety. This is why choosing a female buzz cut is not a decision to make lightly, but with these considerations in mind, you should be well on your way to completely owning this look.
