While undercuts may be trendy right now, I would not advise just running out and getting them on a whim, as you may be stuck with the consequences for a while. Shaving one side, or part of one side of the head, will take a while to grow out if you end up hating it. There will also be that awkward phase when you are growing it out where one side of your head will have short hair and it might look weird for a while. Keep in mind too, that if you dye your hair different from your natural colour, the undercut side will need more maintenance, with either shaving or dyeing, as the roots will appear more noticeable. Keep in mind the thickness of your hair too, as your undercut will be more noticeable on those with thinner finer hair than those with thicker hair. Some of you may like this, while others may want to be able to hide it at times, covering it over with other hair.
That being said,if you've thought about it and you really want it, you should go for it. You only live once and after all it is just hair that will, in time grow out. It wi also give you some interesting hairstyle options, including the afore mentioned deathhawk.
A deathhawk is (as shown above on the lovely Razor Candy) usually teased and swept over to one side, a sort of fuller relative to the Mohawk. These and undercuts were popular in the 90s and seem to have come back around again. If you do not want to commit to a side undercut, but would still like to sport a deathhawk at times, you can always go for the faux deathhawk, which involves combing the hair over to one side and teasing, for a similar effect.
Of course the very daring can go for a full undercut and Mohawk, for that a true punk rock style.
Of course there is the Fauxhawk as well for those who want to try it out without the drastic haircut.
Personally I am not brave enough to go for an undercut and it's not really my thing, although I did have a purple and white fauxhawk when modelling at a hairshow years ago and it was fun. But I think these styles look great on others. What are your thoughts on these hairstyles?
