Maintaining an Undercut

My dearest friend Brittni gave me my first undercut last summer... and honestly I've never looked back. Its such a fun cut to have for many reasons. Badass in Black 1) Easy to hide

2) Easy to show off

3) Keeps you cool in the summer

4) Keeps you cool all the time cause it looks awesome undercut I have quite thick hair, and maintaining it (especially in the back) has always been a struggle. I'm developing carpal tunnel just from trying to straighten it for 10+ years. So mainly I kept my hair short growing up, rather than deal with that mess. Now I have the freedom to grow my hair as long as I want and still have it be easy to maintain.

Brittni and I have decided to bring you a tutorial video on how to keep your undercut looking fresh. All you need are some clippers with several blade covers, and a good friend with a steady hand.

  • I’ve had an undercut like this for a year now (pretty similar to yours in shape, so it was really fun to watch this video as it could’ve been just me with the dark thick hair) and growing it out is pretty annoying. I don’t like to wear my hair down as it gets in my face while I work so I pretty much have to wear a low ponytail now instead of my usual high up messy buns and that’s really something to get used to. I’m definitely considering keeping it like this for a while longer but at the same time, I want all my hair long, so it’s quite problematic at this point. Anyhow, it’s been such an amazing cut and I think it looks really great on you!

  • How annoying is the grow out process ??? There is no way to really blend it with the long hair so you’re basically obligated to wear it down or in a low pony to keep it covered, yeah?
