12 Undercut Hairstyles That Make a Real Statement.

What is an Undercut Hairstyle?

The undercut hairstyle, last seen worn in earnest during the first half of the 20th Century, has had a renaissance since 2010. Due to some early pickup by famous and influential faces, during this decade the undercut has once again become a fashionable cut for men and, increasingly, for women too.

A classic yet versatile hairstyle, and can vary from modest to attention-grabbing. The undercut is achieved by trimming different heights of hair to different lengths, so the hairstyle on top is markedly fuller than the closer trim towards the neckline. It’s a style that works for most men’s hair, except perhaps for very fine hair, or those beginning to lose a little around the crown.

What Does an Undercut Look Like?

The change of season from winter to spring is a great time for a ‘crossover’ design to set you up for a fabulous summer! Undercuts are a rage and as we show you here, there’s lots of different ways to achieve a stunning new look with an edge. Here’s a small collection of cuts from the 50 samples at therighthairstyles.com to wet your appetite:

7. Business Casual Style undercut hairstyles

This style is a great one for the office as it uses the short sections to complement and be part of a more structured style, or can be covered by longer hair on the outer layers. Combine a luxuriously piled up-do with the side trim, which is slightly longer than a shaved look and stylistically appropriate for the workplace or more conventional setting.
