Have you ever been sitting in a salon chair and thought…. “Why can I hear electric clippers and what is the hairdresser planning to do with them?!”
Don’t be scared! Using shaved accent pieces in your hairstyle is very liberating and lots of fun!
We’re less convinced by Twilight’ Actor Robert Pattinson’s experimental shaved do (see above) that has been making the rounds in press lately, but it got us thinking about the buzzcut trend.
TV series like HBO’s Vikings and celebrities like Rihanna have also shown a return of the braided punk look.
Game of Thrones actor Natalie Dormer is amongst one of the notable celebs to have dabbled in the “shaved patch” trend -which we think looks stunning.
If Dormer’s look is a bit too edgy for you, believe it or not, experimenting with the clippers can also look quite elegant. Actress Michelle Williams manages to pull off the style with a little more subtlety with this gentle variation. It looks like she has also pinned the style back to accentuate the asymmetrical look.
If you want to create the same look at home without the commitment try slicking your hair back with gel (try Pliable Shine) and pins on one side. Remember to back-comb and tousle the free hair to add volume and contrast. Finish with Senscience Volume Boost.
What do you think? Is Pattinson’s hair cool or not so hot? Which style is your favourite? Would you ever consider getting a haircut like Robert Pattinson or Natalie Dormer? We’d love to hear what you think.
