A buzz cut is an excellent way to start fresh. Buzz cuts are making a comeback, believe it or not (as if they ever even really left at all). We could all use a refresh – after all, we have so little control in this world, and turning on those clippers is a conscious decision that feels good. It’s a great cut for practically any hair texture, looks great on people with thinning hairlines, and, as we all know, the shorter your hair is, the easier it is to try out new hair colors with minimal risk. If you don’t like it, shave it off and start over. A buzz can also aid in the expansion of your wardrobe and cosmetic alternatives. If you use all that extra canvas, you’d be surprised how much you can do with such little hair.
Even more reason to go for a buzz if you’ve been considering it but haven’t done so yet. So join the likes of Saweetie, Cate Blanchett, and Zöe Kravitz, who have all had their heads shaved at some point in their lives, and get your clippers – they probably had their hairstylist do the cut for them, but the results are the same. Hair grows back, so we added a few grow-out style alternatives in case you don’t like your new look. You’ll never have to wonder, “What if?” about this again, at the very least.
QUICK TIP: To begin, trim some of the length with scissors. Your hair will not become entangled in the clippers if you do it this manner. If you want to retain it to a longer buzz after switching to clippers, you can always start with a guard. However, you should use clippers without a guard to make the cut as near to the scalp as feasible.You might also seek assistance from a buddy. It’s usually advisable to delegate this task to someone else in order to ensure that everything is evenly distributed. Make sure the clippers are pointed in all directions, not just forward and backward.
