Androgynous haircuts - Straight pixie vs. Buzzcut

Androgynous styles have taken over runway fashion in 2017 and this flavour has spilt out onto the streets as well. Two haircuts that suit both genders equally are the straight pixie and the buzzcut. So, which will it be?

The Straight Pixie

Style: A head turner for sure, the straight pixie is characterised by its refined and smooth look that spells elegance. A great cut for angular face shapes, this boyish style has the added advantage of taking years off your age!

Add to it!: Pairing it with bold bangs can add to the appeal. UseL'Oréal Professionnel Fix Max Gel by Tecni.Art to keep in place flyaways and hold the straight style in place. Using a flat iron can on your bangs can help you maintain the sleek look.

What the editors say: Our stylists also recommend L'Oréal Professionnel's new range of Mythic Oils to safeguard your tresses from heat damage (as high as 446F!). And if casual is your way, take some of L'Oréal Professionnel's Next Day Hair Wild Styles to get that messy pixie.

 

The Buzzcut

Style: Definitely not for the faint of heart, a buzzcut commands respect irrespective of whether it's a man or a woman who's sporting it! A great cut for oval faces, it is gaining popularity among celebrities and people on the street alike.

Add to it!: Complement this bold look with an eye-catching colour for that extra dash of oomph! Accessorising is another way of ensuring heads keep turning. Having extremely short hair doesn't mean you can be lax about pampering your teeny tresses! L'Oréal Professionnel's new range of Mythic Oils for extra colour protection, shine, and nourishment is one way of ensuring your hair stays in tiptop condition.

What the editors say: Suitable for individuals with fine bone structure, most face shapes can pull this style off. Just remember that a buzzcut creates an illusion of shortening the length of your face.
