Trendy Undercut with Design
Q&A with style creator, Amanda VanDyne

How would you describe this look?
It’s a sidecut or ladies undercut with a pixie cut and style. I love this look for every girl because it’s a super empowering transformation no matter how long the rest of your hair is. Adding a design to the undercut is a fun way to express your unique style and interests.
This trend is very hot right now whether it be the side of the head or the back. It’s great for kids and for women of any age and in any profession. These styles can also be easily hidden for the workplace by simply changing the parting of the hair. I love seeing the way a client lights up when they see and feel their new shaved hair and design.
Any advice for someone considering it?
As someone who wore a shaved undercut on the back of my head for over two years, this is a great style for anyone who has extremely thick hair and loves to wear their hair up. This is also an amazing style on the side if you have short pixie styles because it adds character and creativity to your look.
One thing you should be aware of with this style is that there is more upkeep than your “normal” styles. The undercut is something that usually needs to be maintained about every 2 weeks to keep it fresh and keep the designs bold. The darker the hair color, the bolder the designs will look. I would suggest women with lighter hair colors go with a simpler design so that it doesn’t get lost against the scalp.
