BEAUTY BAR: Shaved And Chic

If you have avoided looking at a calendar all summer, this might come as a shock—it’s August. As usual, summer flew by and it’s time to start packing up your stuff and ordering textbooks. Or maybe you are like me and never even unpacked.

The start of a new school year is the perfect time to adopt new study habits, make new friends (especially for you incoming freshmen) and try a fresh, new look. A different haircut can make you feel like an entirely new person as you enter the fall semester. One of the trendiest hairstyles you could get to truly transform your style is an undercut—an edgy, chic look achieved by shaving one or both sides of your head. This look is bold and is currently a super hot trend. Pink, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Hayley Williams and Scarlett Johansson are just a few superstars that have helped propel this trend for women. This beautiful Fashionista can be added to the list of fashionable trendsetters.

With shaved sides and volume on top, her look is elegant, chic and bold. The cut is architectural and a showstopper, the kind of look that makes people stop and stare because they wish they were brave enough to get a similar style. Instead of assuming that the look only looks good on others, be bold and try it! Getting your hair cut can be an emotional process, but the great thing about hair is that it grows back. A shaved look could truly transform you this year. It transformed Hannah Montana back to Miley Cyrus—it works.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To recreate this look, all you need is a few simple hair products and a moment of courage when entering the salon. The morning routine to prep this edgy look is simple. Add some root volumizer or texturizing product when blow drying your hair, then add some shine serum and complete the look with hairspray to hold it together.
