While the undercut has certainly made a bold impression in the past few seasons as an edgy, razor sharp haircut, the latest variation on this trend is surprisingly subtle. In fact, the soft undercut is a more versatile take on the daring and bold hairstyle, which has left its mark in the form of shorn sections of hair. For more traditional beauties who are not quite ready to chop off a section of their locks, the soft undercut skips the look of shaved strands.
On the contrary, this revamped trend features slightly shaggy and tousled locks, along with a long bob haircut. The lob is accented with long, textured tresses and layered strands that vary in length. For a finishing touch, subtle waves complete the haircut and offer a modernized, beachy spin on a classic bob haircut. Popular among both blondes and brunettes, the soft undercut can also be updated with piecey highlights and ombré colouring.
For anyone who isn’t quite ready to shave off a visible section of hair, a soft undercut may be a perfect approach to the trend. If you’re currently sporting a long mane and want to keep the length of your locks, the style can also be adapted for longer tresses. With waves which fall past the shoulders and carefree layers, try bringing some dimension and depth to your ‘do with a soft, stylish and wearable undercut.
