The "undercut" haircut

As someone who has an eye for future trends, I lack the ability to identify men’s hair trends beforehand. I don’t understand how the trend suddenly spreads. This season I acknowledged that the new “it” hair for men is the shortened sides with the long center waved back. They call this the “undercut” haircut. But who first came up with it? Was it something on the runways I missed? Did Clooney secretly do his hair like that? Or is word of mouth so effective amongst men that it sets a whole new trend?

Now enough with the investigation, this new punk inspired trend is so attractive. It gives that hot, passionate look to men, making them a bit more boyishly naughty and yet maintaining their neat and classy front.What is noticeable is that this look can only be pulled off by slimmish men with boney structured faces. If you are a Don Draper or an Andy Garcia try avoiding this look.

Even curly hairs can have fun with it.

This trend has also spread widely in the female fashion world. From Rihanna to Emeli, our gals are rocking this haircut like no other.

Just looking at the pictures I'm tempted to do it myself….!


  1. The undercut was the 1990's haircut of choice for all high-school goers. Mocked by people in the 2000's!

    1. Thanks for the info! I thought it was a 1920's style comin back only, but didn't know about the recent on & off trends.
