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 flyaways and hold the straight style in place. A flat iron is also recommended to get your bangs looking sleek, and our stylists suggest L'Oréal Professionnel's new range of Mythic Oils to protect your hair from heat damage (designed to protect up to 446F degrees!). If you're looking for a more casual look, texturize your way into a messy pixie with L'Oréal professionel's Next Day Hair Wild Stylers.

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 accessorize as you please, or perhaps pair this look with a new 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 new range of Mythic Oils for extra colour protection, shine and nourishment. To maintain this style at its very short length, regular visits to your local salon are recommended.
