Ever considered shaving your own buzz cut? Think again. We’ve got the lowdown on why it’s not a good idea.
For the ultimate collection of braid styles for African women, here’s all the inspiration you need…
Despite a reputation for prioritising function over fashion, shave cuts and other very short hairstyles are saturated with personality! They scream confidence and come with a lot more creative freedom than you might think. Whether you’re a black woman considering going fully shorn, or dabbling with the idea of a half-shaved style, let’s look at the edgy potential available to you.
Here are our top three styles, in no particular order:
Personalise a full buzzcut or undercut by adding stripes or swirling patterns to the side of your head. Guaranteed to make people sit up and take notice, no matter how intricate you make the designs.
Very short hair is considered bland by many people. Clearly, they have no imagination! Consider how simply adding colour mixes things up. Apply bold bubblegum shades or on-trend metallic, or try out the ombre effect. Just always go to a stylist for optimal professional colouring, and advice on a home care regime that will sustain your chosen shade.
Lacking the nerve to shave it all off? Taper your new cut instead, going from shaved around the ears to much longer on top of your skull. From retro cool to contemporary casual and evening-out elegant, no two tapered dos are the same. Allow your personality to shine through your choices.
