Disconnected Undercut Hairstyles: Bolder Than Ever

A disconnected undercut has the disconnected sides and top, and that is why it is called this way. The transition of the hair, from a longer top and to shorter sides is far from being gradual. To the contrary, there is a vivid spot where short hair ends and long hair begins.

Such an undercut works great for babes who wish for a contemporary, exciting appearance. It manages to combine the qualities of an elegant quiff and a daring pompadour, resulting in a fun and attention-drawing hairstyle that can complement a somewhat hipster aesthetic.

Now let’s discuss this topic in a greater detail.

As for the sides of a disconnected undercut, they must be shaved, and that will require number 2-number 4 razor clipper setting. In case you wish for a close-cut, neat look, then you can ask your hair stylist to touch up the neckline edges and sides – this can be done with a number 0-number 1 clipper.

As for the top area of the head, your hair stylist will not cut it. Instead, he or she might brush it back. This will grant that contrast that is peculiar to the disconnected cut. And keep in mind that longer tresses on top will guarantee the tall hair appearance and more volume boost. Plus, longer tresses will only enhance that startling contrast seen between the sides and top, which is exactly what you need.
