Inspiration for Your Hair Type and Texture
21 Androgynous Haircuts That Are All The Rage In 2018
21 November 2018
If you’re searching for a haircut that is equal parts feminine and masculine, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up 21 of the best androgynous haircuts in 2018. Whether you’re working with dark brown hair or a vibrant hue, prepare to be showered with compliments.
A spiked crop is a classic look for anyone who loves their style to have a ton of texture. Head to the barber before your strands grow longer than 3 inches to ensure gravity doesn’t get the best of your cut.
Pixie With Curtain Bangs
Contrary to popular belief, bangs are flattering on both men and women. Hoping to try out the hottest fringe of the season? Look no further than curtain bangs. These retro bangs are perfect for anyone who loves pixie cuts but doesn’t want to get rid of their face-framing layers.
Short styles are great for anyone looking for trendy, low maintenance cuts, but sometimes getting rid of all of that hair can make styling your mane seriously boring. If you don’t want to fall into a styling rut, opt for a high-top pixie. The length will allow you to create looks from ponytails and buns to beach waves and braids.
Bowl Cut Bob
Bowl cuts used to invoke memories of dining room table haircuts and dreadful school photos, but no longer! The bowl cut has been updated with modern lines and is perfect for anyone who wants to put their best feature on display—their face! Ask your stylist for full bangs, cutting the rest of your hair to chin length all around. Steering away from the single length cut will bring your style into this century.
Business in the front, party in the back. The mullet has gotten a serious upgrade while managing to hold on to the carefree vibe that made us fall in love with the style in the first place. Gone are the sky-high feathered bangs and unsightly rattails. Instead, the shaggy mullet is all about texture and movement.
Ask your stylist for bangs that go straight across your forehead. He or she will then use a razor to cut the hair on the back of your head, removing any bulky weight. The final result will leave you with two styles in one.
Undercut With Razor Lines
Ask your barber to create razor line designs in your undercut, taking it from plain old hair to a piece of art. If you’re searching for ideas, we’re partial to geometric designs.
Looking to slay a rainbow ‘do, but still want to keep your style relatively low key? Look no further than a multi-colored undercut. Keeping the vibrant colors at the back of your head allows you to keep your technicolor style under wraps until you’re ready to show it off.
If you though buzz cuts were just for men, think again. Women have embraced this classic men’s style that somehow manages to look both masculine and feminine. Shaving off almost all of your hair isn’t for everyone, but those willing to take the plunge are rewarded with a low maintenance style that turns heads.
Down-to-there hair isn’t the only way to show off your precious curls. If you have curly hair, consider a pixie cut. You can still slay a curly pixie even if you don’t have naturally curly hair. Simply curl your hair with a half-inch curling iron to achieve a similar result.
Pixie With Soft Waves
Looking for a killer second-day style after curling your pixie? Soft waves are just what your mane needs. Simply brush out your day old curls for soft waves that are perfect for Sunday brunch with your girls.
Pixie Bowl Cut
If a bowl cut isn’t modern enough for you, the pixie version should do the job. This precise and artistic cut is perfect for anyone who likes their hair to be the center of attention.
Why decide between having long or short hair when you can have both! An asymmetrical cut is the best of both worlds and (as an added bonus) the style has a slimming effect on round faces.
Upgrade your pixie by shaving the sides and back 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.
Once seen as a cut for women transitioning to natural hair, short afros (or TWA, short for teeny weeny afro) are now an incredibly chic and sought-after style. A TWA is perfect for anyone who loves to pile on the highlight—with so little hair, your beautifully illuminated face is all anyone is going to be able to look at.
In just a few decades, mohawks have gone from punk clubs to the runway. The style is perfect for anyone looking for a style that has a bit of an edge. Whether your mohawk hovers just above your head or reaches dizzying heights, you’ll have a fashion-forward style every time.
If you’re used to slicking your cropped ‘do straight back, consider switching things up with a softer style. Simply sweeping your hair to the side creates volume and much-needed movement.
Pompadour with Shaved Sides
If you’re debating whether or not you should take the plunge and go for a full-on buzz cut, test the waters with a shaved side or two. Shaving one or both of the sides of your head allows you to have the best of both worlds: a buzz cut with enough hair to style.
If you love the look of a TWA, you won’t be able to get enough of this afro. All it takes is a little patience and extra TLC and your TWA will flourish into a full-blown afro in no time.
Shaggy Pixie With Fringe
If you love an undone look, this laidback cut is perfect for you. The fringe in the front leaves you with enough hair to style and show off your killer texture, while the pixie cut ensures your low maintenance cut is a breeze to care for.
Pixie With Undercut
Shaving the side of your head is a big commitment, but an undercut is a perfect way to experience shaved hair without having to flaunt it to the world.
Long Locks With Micro Bangs
Whoever said long hair isn’t androgynous was seriously mistaken. Long locks paired with seriously edgy micro bangs is not a cut for the faint of heart, but you’ll easily have the most interesting hair everywhere you go.
