What Is An Asymmetrical Haircut?

by @exotismos

While some women have been rocking asymmetrical haircuts for years, others still have no idea what they are. So, what does asymmetrical haircut mean and what does an asymmetrical haircut look like, after all? In fact, everything is pretty simple. As the name of such cuts suggests, an asymmetrical haircut is a cut where one side is longer, and the other is shorter. Basically, there’s no universal look of the cut, as you can add a touch of asymmetry to anything from a pixie to a lob.


How Do You Cut Asymmetrical Hair?

There are a lot of ways to spice up your haircut with asymmetry. You can create a huge drama with length contrasts, as well as add just a soft feel of imbalance nicely blended through layers. In case you’re wondering how the asymmetry is created or want to take your DIY chances, we’ve prepared a pro tutorial to showcase the basics of getting an asymmetrical cut.

  1. First of all, your stylist will create the first cut that will be the cutting guide.
  2. Then, he or she will brush all your hair to the back, and then section off a half-inch piece of hair from the hairline back to the nape.
  3. Next, your stylist will over-direct this section up and cut it straight.
  4. Then, he or she will make another section, overdirecting it to the previous one and cutting it in the same way.
  5. Moving along the head shape and going left to right from the hairline down to the nape, your stylist will part the hair.
  6. Then, grabbing half-inch sections, he or she will go on cutting them toward the previous section.
  7. To work at the front, your stylist will over-direct all your hair to the first cut section.
  8. For the bottom, he or she will put the comb at a slight angle, and create an asymmetrical body in a point-cutting technique.
  9. After that, your stylist will probably want to add some movement to your hair by deep point-cutting the ends.
  10. Finally, the stylist will connect all sections by slight point cutting.
