stylish ideas for your hair

Corte de pelo undercut

Undercut haircut

A good part of modern haircuts focus all the prominence on the top of the hair. But the modern word here can be misleading, since the styles that are most requested in barber shops today are the classics: short haircuts at the sides and neck and long at the top.

The alternative (although there may seem otherwise) are more relaxed cuts that, instead of keeping hair at bay with the use of hair clippers, try to take advantage of their qualities. If you want something more to your air than the gradient, there are interesting options for straight, wavy and curly hair.

Degraded haircuts

Basically, there are two ways to wear short hair at the sides and long at the top: with gradient or without (which is also known as undercut). Although they have different effects, both options are masculine and highly customizable and flexible when combing.

The degraded haircut has a gradual difference in measurements between the lower and the upper part of the hair. Passing the clipper on the sides to number three is a good start. But when it comes to gradients, there is no default measure.

The upper part is left longer with the help of scissors. However, there are also shorter versions (some made entirely with hair clippers) that will give your hair a military air. Whether long or short, the key to it is to always ensure that the length increases (or decreases if we look at it from top to bottom) in a smooth and natural way.

Safe bet for all ages, you can adapt this haircut to both a formal and informal style with the help of the right hairstyle. It also works with all face shapes, since one of its advantages is that it is possible to make small variations to achieve a more proportionate result. One of the secrets on elongated faces is to start with a higher number on the sides, or do it directly with scissors.

Undercut haircuts

The undercut haircut is more casual because has a sudden jump between the lower part and the upper part of the head. The sides and neck are cut very short, while the top is left longer. Unlike the gradient, the top is disconnected from the bottom. In this way, it is not a short or long haircut, but a combination of both.

The length of both parts depends on your personal preferences. However, if you want to get the most out of this haircut, you need to make sure that the difference in measurements is noticeable.
