Undercut Craze

The new gotta-have-it look is all about the undercut! Bumble and Bumble introduced the look about 15 years ago, but the industry simply wasn’t ready. Now, this trend is exploding everywhere, including here at Pon International.

The beauty with this cut is how many variations there are, which offers something for everyone. For the super-progressive minded, the sides and backs are usually closely clipper cut tight to the head while length on top allows versatility. These cuts can be worn straight, curly, wavy, messy, slicked back or in a classically inspired pomp. And for the masculine side, hard parts are still oh-so-style’n!

There are also versions of the undercut with unique carvings, those that sit offset for asymmetrical styles and others that are more conservative, only carving out the very bottom of the hair. This leaves the length on top and looks like a regular bob when the hair is worn down. Ideal for the corporate woman who prefers a more conservative coif by day but cuts loose at night and on weekends.

So, are you ready to embrace the trend yet?
