Lady Gaga and Terry Richardson teamed up to take some informal photos of the crooner’s new ‘do. Remember when we wrote about the undercut a couple weeks ago? It seems this style is catching wind, and for good reason. With this look, you can go edgy or sweet quick as a flash. Throwing your hair up in a bun will expose the shaved area, and in Gaga’s case she even got a tattoo to fill up the space. If you’re feeling more classic, you can let your hair down and the secret will be all yours. Check style notes for tips on getting and styling an undercut.
Step: An undercut gives space for hair to swing and move with natural texture. Talk to your stylist about undercutting on the side or in the back for a deconstructed, versatile style.
Step: For a statement style, pair an undercut with a candy-coated color accent. Pastel-gelato shades are on the vanguard of fashion; talk to your colorist about using bright tones to accent the shape of the cut.
Step: For styling, keep it loose and messy, promote contrast and separation with texture paste or cream wax. For a demure look, smooth it out with a blowdryer, a brush, and a smoothing product like defrizz serum. And if you are feeling avant-garde, twist it up into a bun, exposing your hairline in a dramatic fashion.
