Choosing to rock a buzz cut is a major decision- here’s what you should consider before you go for broke!
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
Let’s be real – who hasn’t considered shaving their head in the heat of summer, cooped up in a steaming hot car in midday traffic? It was possibly only a fleeting consideration, quickly dispersed, but at some point or another many of us have cherished the thought! When comes to shaving your head though, there’s much to consider.
While women’s buzz cut hairstyles are growing in popularity, the shaved look is not for the faint-hearted and, in our humble opinion, should always be done by a professional.
Your partner, parent or even roommate possibly has a hair clipper neatly stashed away in the bathroom cabinet and while it may be tempting to reach for these in an attempt to buzz your own hair, here’s why it isn’t a do-it-yourself hairstyle:
This type of ‘do may appear simple – but there’s a fine art in achieving an even, flawless finish, especially when it comes to patterned shaved cuts. Consider the mechanics of buzzing your own head too – can you reach the back of your head to shave it evenly or would you really trust your partner to do it for you?
As for the funky, patterned shaves – it’s time for a reality check. Sure, there are a myriad of simple enough buzz cut styles for women, but have you thought about the technique that goes into shaving a design and the fact that you’ll have to deal with hair regrowth every two weeks? Are you able to determine the direction of your own hair growth so that your patterned shave grows back in the right direction?
The bottom line is that even though a women’s buzz cut is an easy-peasy, low-maintenance hairstyle for summer, it needs to be shaved and maintained by professionals – unless ‘prison chic’ is the look you’re going for!
