The latest internal debate I'm having over hair (see previous ones here and here, and my most recent bold - at least to me - hair moves here and here) involves something a wee bit more dramatic: the undercut. Let's be clear though, I'm not talking about starting down a crazy rebellious punk path that will lead to facial piercings and tattoos, I'm talking about the chic undercut, the elegant yet still totally ballsy undercut. I'm talking about women like Kate Lanphear and Tilda Swinton here. Lovely poised beauties like Freja Beha.
And you know when Freja does something, it's pretty easy to get behind it. I actually had a similar undercut when I was in highschool (a million years ago?), and it was a pain in the ass to grow out. But somehow that experience and knowledge isn't stopping me from considering it again a second time.
More undercut inspo...
Ginnifer Goodwin and Rihanna (possibly the Queen of the Undercut?) both look ridiculously hot, don't you think? Then of course there's edgy model Alice Dellal doing her thing for Chanel:
And who could forget the lovely Anya Ayoung Chee from Project Runway's season 9? She was so beautiful it almost distracted me from all that quality educational reality tv.
The undercut seems to work for all lengths, and all colors, either on the sides or on the bottom...
