3 Edgy Haircuts We Love + Day-To-Night Styling Tips From Dominic Michael Salon
Sometimes it’s the little things that can keep you from taking a risk with your hair, but with the guidance and advice of a professional stylist, it can be just what you need to upgrade your look. For those who are a bit more reserved about trying something daring because of a possible styling faux-pas or a conservative work environment, Dominic Bertani, owner of Dominic Michael Salon, has suggested three cuts that are edgy, versatile and can easily be styled more “toned-down” when needed.
1/ Edgy + Sleek
The shorter undercut can be played up by using a texturizer like LOREAL Texture Expert. For an opposite effect, the longer top portions can cover up the layers for a sleek, shapely result.
2/ Short & Choppy
While this cut looks great styled piece-y in vibrant reds, it can be slicked back or styled with a deep side part for a tamer look.
3/ The Fashion-Girl Mullet
A modern take on the Euro-cut that nearly every British rocker had in the ’90s, this style looks great on someone who is looking for an alternative to the average micro-bob.
For ideas, Instagram and Pinterest are great go-tos, showcasing the latest trends in cut and color. “Look for photos with people who have a similar face shape and skin tone,” suggests Bertani. “You can also get really great hair inspiration from the runways—New York Fashion Week is happening now. It’s an excellent way to see what’s new and next.”
The best way to communicate a new style? “Pictures are the common ground for stylists and clients; it’s a language everyone speaks,” says Bertani. “This gives your stylist a look into exactly what you are thinking. The stylist can then customize the style based off the client’s lifestyle and level of commitment. If you are unsure about your new look, you can always schedule a consultation with your stylist before scheduling your big change.”
