So, you’ve been dabbling with the idea of shaving off your locks for the longest time, but taking the plunge is proving more difficult than expected. We feel you! The amount of sexy and stylish shaved hairstyles available should be tempting enough, but if you’re not that easily convinced, here’s a list of other reasons you should get the hair clippers out today.
A buzz cut is by far the lowest maintenance haircut you can go for. Depending on how fast your locks grow, this hairstyle choice could also mean nothing more than a quick five-minute trip to the salon every six weeks or so. There’s no extra effort required on your part when it comes to styling it, and cleansing and conditioning is a breeze! It seems an obvious choice for those who don’t want to spend too much time on their hair but still want to look trendy.
Colouring your buzz cut is a simple yet effective way of sprucing up this low-maintenance look. Plus, it’s likely to cost you half the price, because you have half the amount of hair. Play around with colours that’ll best complement your skin tone, and don’t be afraid to try something new. With a buzz cut, you can get away with crazy shades you often couldn’t pull off with longer locks.
Just like with vibrant colour options, buzz cuts are also ideal to have a bit of fun with lines and patterns. Whether it’s to define a side path, or give a simple look a bit of character, your buzz cut is a canvas on which to create beautiful hair art – that’s also easy to grow out when you want to update your look. Instead of whipping out clippers at home, we suggest visiting your stylist to perfect those lines.
Apart from achieving a super-trendy look, buzz cuts are the way to go if you’re looking to rid yourself of those damaged locks, or to grow out your natural hair. It’s also a great hairstyle option for women with receding hairlines caused by months of weaves and braids. Breathe new life into your hair while staying super stylish and be sure to consult your stylist as to how best care for your buzz cut.
Bet you didn’t realise just how many benefits come with a buzz cut? Well, now you do. So instead of finding any excuse not to do it, now you have all the excuses in the world to embrace a short-haired look. For best results, visit a hair professional. And if you don’t have a go-to stylist.
