Copy Charlize’s Buzz Cut
IT normally takes three examples to make a trend, so the close crops seen lately is now definitely cemented. Katy Perry, Cara Delevigne and Kristen Stewart had us up in arms when they made the cut and birthday girl Charlize Theron made the cut for a movie role. This begs the question: is this THE hair trend of 2017? And how would it translate to you? Here’s everything you need to know on how to rock #shorthairdontcare without a care, just like Charlize.
- A buzz cut is not as easy as just using a razor at home. It’s definitely a salon job, best left to the professionals. The shape needs to be hand-crafted first with scissors, to allow you to adapt the shape of the cut to the face before going to the clippers.
- A hairstyle like this is a lot of work: you’ll need a trim every three to five weeks if you want to keep the same look. And just keep in mind that growing it out again can be a rocky road.
- There is an obvious, practical reason for getting a buzz cut that can be summed up in one word: freedom. Freedom from products (or at least most of them) and hair tools, freedom from styling and, of course, much more free time.
- Buzzcuts are traditionally viewed as a masculine hairstyle, so why not play that up with an androgynous look? Go dapper with collared, button-up blouses, dark blazers and trousers. Or, you can overthrow the buzz cut’s connection to masculine looks by going feminine with your style. Think sheer, airy dresses and mini skirts.
- A lot of hair can act as a style crutch. When you don’t have that crutch anymore, you’re forced to get creative. If you’re up for that challenge you can have a lot more fun with accessorizing and make-up. Decide to finally try your hand at bright lipsticks or contour to your heart’s content and make cheekbones really pop.
- Not all buzz cuts needs to be a length 0 all around, a number 1 or 2 buzz can also look great if you prefer more hair.
- Whether it’s too many dye jobs, chemical straightening or breakage turning your hair into a limp, frizzy mess, Buzz cuts are a quick fix to get rid of damaged hair. It’s a fresh start! It might just be a temporary look, while you give your roots some tender love and care or you could fall in love with it!
