Mrs Mac has told me she will update this blog thursday night with her idea's and thoughts
Which is the night before her haircut. But before she does that I wanted to chime in and post something
I've noticed here and there some of the buzzed undercuts are now sporting a fade to them.
Mrs Mac first noticed this in Pink's music video for "Give Me Just A Reason"
I myself noticed Miley Cyrus had one before she lopped her hair off to that ultra short pixie she had.
Miley is another story all together. Her ultra short Annie Lennox crop has grown out into a faux hawk an was actually looking really good, and then as of last week, she posted pics on twitter of it dyed bluish and then a black and white pic with what seems to be dark hair slicked down and grown out to a Emma Watson pixie. ( in my opinon I think Miley is through with short hair and is on the grow out)
But back to the fade. Mrs Mac noticed it and said she liked it. I myself like it as well for some reason.
I like the fact that it could be a #2 or #3 on the upper sides and then be a #2 or #1 closer to the ears and into the nape.It also gives the undercut area a cool looking V shape within the longer buzzed hair.
Comparing this fade with an all over #2 undercut, I've realized the fade adds a subtleness and softness to the undercut. Ive never realized it until I saw an undercut fade back to back with a all one length buzzed undercut but an all one length buzzed undercut can seem a little harsh in some instances.
Dont get me wrong I love a good #2 buzzing all the way around on an undercut. It's striking looking, but I really appreciate the look of a faded undercut.
When the long top hair is worn up, the exposed fade add's a little something to the haircut,
I have unfortunatley havent seen what a faded undercut looks like when the long hair from atop the head is worn down how so many including Mrs Mac is wearing it these days.
I wonder if the longer wispy hair coming over the buzzed area on the sides, mixeed with a faded buzz might look confusing and inconsistant. On the other end of it though I wonder if long hair laying over the faded undercut gives it a more blended look.
I've done my best to give you all examples in this posting with pics and the Pink video.
Mrs Mac is considering getting this to tweak her style, but doesnt think it's worth doing seeing her undercut is brown and Pink's is blonde which she feels accenuate's the contrast of the fade.
Mrs Mac think's 1.) it will grow in too fast to even be worth doing 2.) It wont show with her brown undercut.
So here's where your opinon counts.
Let us know what you think
Is a fade added even worth doing?
Would it even be that noticable?
Is Mrs Mac right that the undercut would need to be bleached blonde as well?
Give us your feed back and look for Mrs Mac to address this and much more Thursday night.
PS: the best example of the undercut fade is the video itself.
