They tend to toe the line between "feminine" and "masculine," becoming gender-neutral, often combining elements of popular short haircuts and hairstyles like buzz cuts, a pixie cut, Mohawks, fades, and bobs.
Many androgynous haircuts require a lot of upkeep because they have shaved sides or designs that need to be maintained to look fresh. Other androgynous haircuts, like a choppy bob, are low-maintenance and require little to no styling.

20 of the Best Androgynous Haircuts for 2022
Buzzed Sides and Long Top
This is one of our favorite androgynous hairstyles because of its versatility. You can buzz the sides completely, or wear it as a fade haircut. We recommend the cut for those with medium to coarse hair.
It looks especially killer if you have naturally curly hair like the photo. To style it, use a tiny bit of hair gel around the sides to ensure you don't have any pieces sticking up. Then, apply the same hair gel to the top, running it through the strands with your fingers. Use sparingly, though so the top does not look greasy.
