Androgynous Haircuts - straight pixie vs. buzzcut

Runway fashion in 2017 is continuing to lean towards androgynous styles, and now this trend is being spotted on the streets as well. The straight pixie and buzzcut are two hairstyles that can be worn by both men and women – but which do you prefer?

The Straight Pixie

The straight pixie haircut's refined and smooth appearance lends itself towards elegance, and can always be counted on to turn heads. Angular faces love this boyish cut, which suits all genders and has the ability to make its wearers look much younger than they are. Bold bangs can be a great way to add variety to this cut, and can be styled with L'Oréal Professionnel's Fix Max Gel by Tecni.Art to tame any fly aways and hold the straight style in place. A flat iron is also recommended to get your bangs looking sleek. If you're looking for a more casual look, texturize your way into a messy pixie with L'Oréal Professionnel's Next Day Hair Wild Stylers Hairspray.

The Buzzcut

The buzzcut requires bravery from anyone who decides to take it on – man or woman! It's being adopted by celebrities and civilians alike as the ultimate way to stand out from the crowd and show off your bone structure. This haircut is best for oval faces, though other shapes can pull it off as well if you keep in mind that it has the effect of shortening the length of your face. There's nowhere to hide with this bold silhouette, so you shouldn't be afraid to accessorise as you please, or perhaps pair this look with a new hair colour to take it to the next level! Even the shortest hair needs R&R, so treat your (tiny) tresses to L'Oréal Professionnel's Pro Fiber range for extra colour protection, shine and nourishment. To maintain this style at its very short length, regular visits to your local salon are recommended.
