Don’t let images of buzz cuts for men spring to mind when it comes to razor cutting. Skilled stylists can create some seriously sexy styles when it comes to using that little razor. Razored cuts involve choppy, textured, tapered ends for a ‘do that will demand attention. Gals with thick tresses will benefit from lighter-feeling locks with heaps more definition thanks to this method of cutting. From a cute crop to shoulder-length layers, razored ‘dos come in different variations and lengths.
Give your pixie a stamp of attitude with razored, jagged strands. Ask your stylist for a pixie crop with plenty of tapered ends and textured layers. Keep your pixie longer on the top section so that you can experiment with spiking it up or wearing it sleek. Keep the side and back short and choppy, with plenty of razored ends. Team your pixie with long, angled choppy bangs to frame your face and pull your look together. A short pixie makes thick tresses easier to manage.
Dianna Agron has been seen working a razored shab -- a cross between a bob and a shag -- on the red carpet with striking results. Get the look for yourself and ask your stylist for a heavily razored, choppy ‘do that falls somewhere between lip and chin-length. The razored layers give this ‘do a sexy, disheveled and unstructured appearance. Wear your bangs straight across and super-jagged to accentuate your pretty peepers. Your naturally thick tresses will give this ‘do the volume and body it deserves.
Make a style statement with a seriously-short razored gamine cut. This ‘do can look a little harsh so is best reserved for gals with heaps of confidence and delicate facial features. Ask your stylist for a super-short gamine with razored, tapered ends. The razor cutting will help your ‘do look softer and more feminine. Tame unruly strands with a slick of hair wax to keep things near and sleek.
Razored cuts don’t have to be short. Bring your shoulder-length locks up to date with the addition of some choppy, razored layers. Ask your stylist for textured, choppy layers throughout to remove bulk and add definition. Keep some strands shorter around the front to frame your face and highlight great eyes or cheekbones. Manipulate those jagged ends with a little styling wax before stepping out of the house.
