19 Undercut Designs That Are Sharp AF
by Hannah Marsh
With spring on its way, undercut designs (i.e. insanely cool shapes and patterns created by exposing the skin in a buzzed section of hair) are the chic hair trend of the season. Check out these 19 looks that we can totally get behind.
While undercut designs are dope on their own, adding a streak or two of color, like this look from @dennisjosephbabyliss does, can really take it to another level.
Who doesn’t want to carry a little sunshine around with them all day? This design from @cosmoprofbeauty will help you take that a bit more literally.
Create an updo with a surprise, like this gorgeous look from @cosmoprofbeauty. Vibrant streaks of color give a modern twist to a classic ‘do!
[Not Such A] Wall Flower
We adore the way @haritobarber framed the ear with this intricately designed flower. It gives the pretty design a seriously edgy vibe!
(A)Head Of The Trends
Undercut designs give your barber a bit of an artistic license, and @jon_dome‘s crazy cool cut proves that can definitely be a good thing!
A short pixie with sharp lines etched into the underside like this cut from @shinesalonclt gives off a future-y vibe that will show your fierceness immediately upon entering a room.
Who said undercut designs all have to have sharp lines? This flowy look from @beautywithray gives a softer vibe to this cool trend!
Locks Of Love
We can heart-ly get enough of this undercut design from @gstunnah. (Ha. Ha. Not sorry.) But seriously, how could you not love those adorable open hearts?
Go against the grain with some wave-like designs, like these ones by @lipstickbarber_isis, and wave goodbye to a boring haircut!
Hide ‘N’ Chic
A sleek bob with a peek-a-boo undercut creates a “business in the front, party in the back” look, minus the horrid flashbacks of the mullet era. Check out this one from @nataliejosephhair!
Sideways And Criss-Crossed
A mohawk in itself is badass enough, but add an undercut design to the shaved sides, like this ‘do from @thebarberykeene, and you’re ready to absolutely own any occasion.
No one ever said this trend had to stay in the back! This front undercut from @buzzcutfeed lets you show off your design of choice immediately upon meeting, leaving no question to your level of fierceness.
Never Enough Color
By keeping the majority of your hair its natural color, you can really make your undercut design pop. Just check out this multicolored style from @beautywithray.
Because of course the world would find a way to make this already cool trend even cooler. A 3D cut like this one from @calthebarber takes it up yet another perfectly-designed notch.
Overcomb Your Fears
A deep side part + a killer design to show off to the world = a foolproof recipe for a successful (and seriously badass) hairstyle. Just look at this one from @jufriseure.
Want to try an undercut design, but not ready to go all out with an intricate cut? A subtle design of your choice, like this zig-zag line from @porcupourvous, can be a simply perfect way to still give it a go.
A Splash Of Color
Bring your look to life by adding some serious color(s) to the design of your choice. So ~techincally~ it’s not an undercut, but this vibrant ‘do from @isa.professional shines too much to not show it off!
Bound With A Bow
No need to always go abstract. Adding a fun image in your design, like this cute little bow from @cleos_hair_design, is a great way to let your personality shine through!
This leopard print undercut from @april_egan_hairdressing is everything. Add your favorite animal print for a sassy complement to any hairstyle.
