Are you down in the dumps? Stuck in a rut? Uninspired? Tired of the same old shave? You’re at the barber, all sat down and have no idea what haircut to get this time? Well, this is for you if you’re all about the cut life. If you’re looking for inspiration for your next haircut, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading to discover are some amazing cuts that will help you spice up your TWA(Teeny Weeny Afro) :
I am an advocate of everything classic and the fade is not an exception. A fade is a haircut that is literally just that. The hair is more at the crown but it goes fading on the rest of the head. A classic fade can be garnished with a sharp cut at the front for an unexpected contrast and instant cool factor. Take this photo to your barber at once! Tell him I sent you.
A good colour can really amp up a haircut…And your whole mood. And your life basically. Whether burgundy, honey brown, platinum blonde or purple. What’s more, you can add curls in the form of a perm rod set or bantu knot-outs to the mix and you have just created a haircut that is sure to make you the centre of attention. Watch out world!
Your barber can cut your hair in a fade or use their creativity to create patterns down the sides and at the back. Just like the style below.
How about adding flair to your cut by doing some finger coils at the crown? So you can shave the sides and back and create small or large finger coils for added texture and a fun hair cut! You can use gel to slick down your edges for the finishing touch.
This is another variation of the fade. With added oomph! Let’s call it the fade’s fun older sister. Get your barber/hairstylist to give you a fade,whether with patterns or just a good old fade but leave the crown with enough hair for it to be braided. You can do many braided styles with the crown. Chunky twists are a go-to, especially if they have highlights. You can keep the braids short or long depending on your preference.
With these haircuts as inspiration, you’re ready for your next trip to the barber!
