It’s getting to be that time of the year— the time where you are itching to change up your look. The weather is changing, your memorial day vacation is right around the corner & you want a fresh & exciting new cut to perk up your morning routine. If you haven’t already noticed, the hair trends are getting shorter and shorter. Last year was dominated by the ever-trendy Lob and now we are seeing a spike in pixies, shags, and straight up buzz cuts.
I shaved my head for the first time right before starting beauty school. I’d gotten a terrible haircut and decided it was better to start over. I’d had pixie cuts before, but bald was something else. I felt naked. At first I was sure I looked like a man. I had a love hate relationship with my bold new look, it made me feel powerful, but not pretty. Years later I shaved my head again, and then again. Each time I experienced a strange mix of empowerment and vulnerability. A shaved head can be a stand against cultural beauty ideals or a way of flaunting natural beauty for women who are blessed with conventional prettiness. I personally love androgyny, but I also understand that it doesn’t work for everyone. What do you think about buzz cuts on women?

Flirty and feminine, this season’s short shapes are turning back the clock to the early 2000s when pixie cuts where longer, rounder, and piecier. In recent years cropped shapes have exhibited a stronger, more boyish tone with barbered edges and stronger outlines; this season’s girlier variations are a refreshing change of pace. These cuts look feminine even without makeup and require little more in the way of styling than a dab of pomade. If your ready to update your crop click the style notes. –– Laura Martin
