When you’re trying to decide which haircut you should try next, it is easy to forget that some of the best styles actually involve less hair! Shaved hairstyles for women have become increasingly popular over the last few years and we can’t say we’re surprised. Shaved hairstyles are not only fashion forward and flattering, but also fairly low maintenance.


Ready to take the plunge and shave off your hair? Look no further than these five on-trend shaved hairstyles.

You could just shave your hair off and call it a day, but if you might as well have a little fun with your hair in the process. Shaving designs into your head is a technique that has typically reserved for men, but we all know: anything they can do, we can do better.

We’re completely obsessed with shaved geometric designs, but a skilled barber can create just about any design your heart desires.

Tapered Pixie

If you’re looking to give your pixie haircut an upgrade, consider shaving the sides and back really close to your scalp for a tapered look. Keeping your hair longer on top gives you more day-to-day styling options, while the tapered edges instantly make your face appear slimmer.

Rainbow Buzz Cut

If you’re someone who loves to experiment with color, the thought of shaving off all your hair can be a bit daunting. How can you possibly slay every color in the rainbow if you get rid of your precious locks? Answer: A rainbow buzz cut.

Even though a buzz cut is just a few centimeters away from having a completely bald head, it leave just enough hair for you to experiment with any color your heart desires. Color your whole head orange, red, green, blue—or combine them all for a killer rainbow ‘do that is bound to turn heads.

Shaved Side

The shaved side is anything but new, and yet it’s as on-trend as ever. The great thing about shaving just one side is that anyone can wear the style. Whether you have short, long, straight or textured hair, a shaved side instantly gives your style an edgy look.

Pro tip: If you work in a conservative environment and are worried about what your boss or coworkers may say about your shaved side, keep the rest of your hair long. Your hair will be long enough to cover the shaved side during work hours. As soon as 5 p.m. hits, you can let your shaved side shine.

Undercut hairstyles are a fun and subtle way to jump on the shaved head trend, without getting rid of too much of your hair. Ask your stylist or barber to keep your undercut small if you’re new to shaved hair. After just a few weeks with your itty-bitty undercut we’re sure you’ll head back to the salon to ask them to make it bigger.
