Harold Guadalupe, a hairstylist from Riverview FL, explains, “It’s for older women who prefer easy-to-style haircuts that have a bit of attitude. Short haircuts can make us feel exposed so it’s vital that you feel confident in it all the time.”
Guadalupe shares that versatility on the upkeep and styling of this cut is quite a challenge. “Finding ways to soften some areas and spiking certain areas at the same time as the hair grows is hard to do,” he says. “A detailed cut needs full attention, daily styling, and frequent salon visits to maintain its shape.”
