Buzz Cut: The uncomplicated short haircut for self-confident women!
He is probably the hair trend that causes the most sensation: the buzz cut. While the razor-short machine cut is hardly unusual for men, more and more women are shaving their hair down to just a few centimeters – from stars like Cara Delevingne and Kristen Stewart to runway models.
The buzz cut is a hairstyle trend that is now almost a classic. It is a short hairstyle shaved to a few millimeters that enhances the contours of women and flatters soft facial features in particular. In addition, the buzz cut is an absolute eye-catcher, which also puts make-up and jewelry in the foreground.
The buzz cut is not new for women. A pioneer when it comes to female machine cuts was definitely Sinéad O'Connor, who sang her way into our hearts back in 1990 with her hit "Nothing compares 2 u" and her hair cut short. In contrast to other women, the 55-year-old Irish woman has remained true to her haircut to this day. Many actresses have also dared to try the radical short haircut over the years - including Zoë Kravitz and Kristen Stewart.
Are you longing for a radical change but not quite sure if the buzz cut would suit you? There are a few things to consider before you grab that razor.
A buzz cut is always a surprise - even with stars like Cara Delevingne or Zoë Kravitz. But in the before and after comparison you can see that the courage for this hairstyle trend can definitely pay off. While Cara Delevingne's facial features are many better-accentuated thanks to the buzz cut, Zoë Kravitz combines her buzz cut with light coloration. A real type of change!
If you wear a buzz cut, you can't hide anything. That is why the haircut is particularly suitable for women with balanced, symmetrical facial features. Large, flat, or very round faces can be accentuated unfavorably by the cut. It looks better on narrow, heart-shaped, or oval faces. The more prominent the facial features, the more masculine the look—which isn't necessarily a disadvantage if you're only aware of it.
For women with soft, filigree, or slightly doll features like Ruth Bell, a short haircut still looks feminine.
Maybe you've never thought about the shape of your skull. Actually, neither do we. However, those who opt for a buzz cut should be aware that the shape of the head is also exposed. The more balanced this is, the better a shaved head will look on you.
Contrasts are required here! Women with black or dark brown hair can wear the buzz cut well. Blondes can create contrasts with a platinum blonde coloration.
The thicker your hair, the more unruly it will be if you ever decide to grow out the buzz cut. While fine hair simply lies flat against the head, thick or curly hair can stand out from the head as it grows. That too can look great. Either way, you will likely need to schedule more frequent visits to the hairdresser during this time.
The buzz cut itself is extremely easy to care for. Once shaved, you can simply shave it yourself regularly. The finer your hair is, the more you should be careful not to shave too much so that the scalp doesn't show through the hair.
There's not a lot that can be styled on the hairdo itself, that's for sure. As far as the rest of your styling is concerned, you can really step on the gas with short hair. For example, to create a feminine contrast, you can work with large earrings, dark eye make-up, or colored lipstick.
