A couple of years ago, Rihanna brought back the undercut as a popular hairstyle among women. Just for info, the undercut was popular during the Edwardian era, the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Then, it went missing for more than 60 years before Rihanna and other celebrities brought it back to life.
But the problem with the undercut is most women do not want to shave the hair on both of their sides. And that is how the shaved side hairstyle was born. Unlike the undercut, you shave just one side of your hair, and leave the hair long on the top of your head or on the other side.
We give you a couple ideas for this trendy look, and it is up to you to choose the one that works best for your character.
#1. Elegant Shoulder Length
We start off with a classic look. Most women wear their hair by the shoulders, so it is only logical that we start with a classic shoulder-length look. Wear your hair elegantly. Nothing spectacular, but gets the job done.
#2. Shaved Fade Out Lines On TWA
Now, if you like to be unique, this is the look you want to go. Sadly, not everyone can get it, as you need curly hair. And this look definitely requires a lot of confidence. Cutting your hair short is something most women do not have courage to do.
#3. Goddess Locks With Shaved Side
Corn braids or not, this look is absolutely amazing. Now, adding some artificial hair might not be your idea of a hairstyle. But it is worth trying at least once.
#4. Black Root Blond With Razor Cut Braided Line
We love it when women want to make a statement. And this unique hairstyle will help you do just that. Celebrities experiment with hairstyles like this one on a regular basis. So why can’t you try it?
#5. Purple Pixie
The pixie is a timeless look. And every year, women are trying and looking for a new way to make the pixie more fashionable. The shaved side hairstyle is definitely good option. It puts even more emphasis on your pixie and volume.
#6. Line And Cut Edging Heart Curly Hair
When we talk about shaved side hairstyles, we often talk about a fully shaved side. But every now and then, you can go with a sign or symbol on the sides. Back in the 1990s, men shaved the Nike symbol on their head. Women are of course more elegant and sophisticated, so a statement line is the way to go.
#7. Bold Shave On Long Red Hair
Now this is something you can imagine a celebrity like Rihanna doing. If you gather up the courage to do it, we are absolutely for it. Every now and then, every woman has to make a bold statement with her hairstyle. This might be your time.
#8. Long Cut On Purple Hair
Side shaved haircuts are usually not so long in length. They do not go as deep as this hairstyle. Being that the trend is versatile, we leave the length up to you. If you are comfortable with a deeper cut, great. If not, at least we showed you how it looks.
#9. Silver Mohawk With Razorcut
Several years ago, the Mohawk was not something elegant. Women did not consider the Mohawk hairstyle as an elegant choice for a formal dinner, date, or a cocktail event. How things have changed in the past few years. And it is all thanks to unique trends like the side shaving. This Mohawk looks absolutely amazing!
#10. Side Shaved 3b Curls In Warm Tones
Side shaving, and dyeing of your hair. Now that is a combination that only a few of us are brave enough to try. And if you are blessed with curly hair, you are in even better position.
#11. Wavy Zigzag Fadeout TWO
We must say that in the past few years, we are noticing more and more women opt for a short hair. Or a buzz cut as some say it. While a regular buzz cut is not as feminine, add in a side shave cut, and you have a statement hairstyle.
#12. long bang shoulder razor cut line
We talked how shoulder length is the most common length among women. We gave you one option at the beginning, and now we have another hairstyle you can try. Basically, you just add a razor line, and you have a bolder hairstyle.
#13. Caramel Curly Side Shave
You can say the beauty of this hairstyle is in the colors. Caramel is always a nice option, and if you have curls, even better. Add a side shave to put even more emphasis on your hairstyle.
#14. Shaved Side With Slicked Back Ponytail
Now this looks like a hairstyle from a movie, right? Hollywood has put a big emphasis on strong and individual women in the past few years. And they’ve done with it heroine-like hairstyles like this one.
#15. Green Pixie Two Cut Lines
We had a pink pixie, and now we show you an idea with another color that just cries for a shaved side. Green looks gorgeous, and you can try both light, dark, or emerald green. We leave that up to you.
#16. Sunset Bangs Pixie
The biggest downside of this hairstyle is maintenance. It has to be perfect, and for that, you have to cut it on a regular basis. Now that might be a bit hassle for some women, but we believe it is worth the trouble. You will look stunning.
#17. Long top caramel ombre long side
Even ombre can be styled with a side shaving hairstyle. Ombre is slowly but steady losing its popularity, which can mean only one thing. We have to experiment with different ombre combinations to keep it fresh. Side shaving is definitely a good idea.
#18. Micro box braids shaved side
Some women want absolute precision on their head. And this is such hairstyle. Executed perfectly, this is another hairstyle you can find in a movies with Harlem voice.
#19. Curly Blond Mohawk
We said previously that the Mohawk is making a big comeback, and it is all thanks to bringing elegance to the style. A curly Mohawk is something you can try, and it does not require a lot of maintenance.
#20. Long Shaved Side V-cut
One of the big features of side shaving is versatility. You can shave your sides in absolutely any way. For example, this is one unique option. Instead of the full side, do a V-cut.
#21. Shaved Crochet Braids
Braids are gaining some traction as a popular trend among women of all colors. Some 10 – 20 years ago, braids and corn braids specifically, were something only African-American women wore. But nowadays, every woman can get her braids, and look normal.
#22. Gradient cut with tiny bun
If you want to experiment with hairstyles, the side shaving definitely gives you that. Once you shave one side of your head, the emphasis is on what is left. And you can play with different hairstyles, be it ponytail, bun, or anything else.
#23. Candy bun with shaved edged razorcut
Some would say this is a bit too much. Good, as this is a hairstyle for the few brave ones. It looks childish, but it is a bold and courageous statement.
#24. Fade cut on pixie
Strong women are more and more opting for a side shaving. Just look at this woman. How confident she looks on a scale from 1 to 10?
#25. curly long blonde shaved side
We had a couple of Mohawks on the list, and this is definitely the best one. The length makes it spectacular. And we love how it is not a common Mohawk on top of your head. With that in mind, we hope you enjoyed the ideas we provided. Now, all that is left is to print the photo, or save it on your phone, and show it to your hair stylist. Get him to work!
