Planning Out Your Undercut

An female undercuts requires cutting some of your hair very short which can be a bit intimidating, especially for those that have never had short hair. Luckily you can see that some of the examples above actually cover only a small lower portion on the back of the head.

A lot of undercut styles are easy to hide if you find that you don’t want the shorter hair showing or change your mind about your look in some way. In this respect, they are not all as risky as some haircuts that stand out no matter what you do with your hair.

Starting with a small design and stepping up to a larger undercut is an excellent choice for those that are struggling with the decision of what undercut to get. If you have thick hair, you may go for a little bit more off the bottom initially.

Color can completely change the look of your undercut so you should realize that you have a whole world of temp color or glitter that can be utilized to add some extra glamor or fun when needed. The designs we have shown you are great but don’t be afraid to use them to create a look that is entirely personal and unique to you.
