Pop stars like Rihanna and Cassie are rocking a great new hair trend – the side shave! You want to do something fun and funky too, but your ultra-conservative boss might just fire you if you go half Sinead on him. Here is a way to sass up your wig and keep your bankers hat on at the same time!
You will need a hair cutting scissors, 2-3 clips, pomade and a comb.
Start by sectioning off a lock of damp hair above the ear, at the hairline. You can personalize it by making the section as large or small as you want. 2 inches by 2 inches is recommended. Clip the rest of the hair back and out of the way. Now, brush the section forward, towards your chin, and “point cut” it in the opposite direction. This just means instead of cutting the hair in one straight line, you will angle the scissors towards your ear and make 3-4 smaller snips to soften. Then, hold a half inch, vertical section, 90 degrees and 2 inches from your scalp, between your index and middle fingers. Cut to layer. Continue this step until finished. Now if you want to get fancy, you can use a texture shears on the ends to blend. Apply pomade to style.
Now you have this great new, hip look to show off to your friends! But what about that boss? Simple! Just part your hair on the other side and Poof! Your funk has disappeared like magic!
