This fall, the hair gods are divining one of two very different styles: buzzed right down or textured and proudly waving. Here’s how to master both.
A super trim buzz cut

There’s no hiding behind this cut. Severe in nature, the buzz cut highlights the dimensions of the face for maximum impact.
Instead of a uniform length, which can give off a tennis ball effect, keep it trimmer on the sides and slightly longer on the top with a gentle fade.
Always add a small amount of product to keep it buzzy, not fuzzy. Regular visits to your barber will keep this cut on point.

Ride the Wave
As Seen On:
Jake Gyllenhaal; Timothée Chalamet; John Cho
This look is all about letting your hair do its thing without getting out of control. It’s a stylized version of your au naturel best.
Individuality is the key. Find balance by keeping your hair trim on the sides while giving the hair on top more freedom.
Consult your hairstylist for advice on what cut best enhances your hair’s natural texture. Use product like foam to enhance rather than control your hair’s texture.
