Hairstyles with a touch of punk glamorlook super hot and exude an energy like no other short crop. However, the bold undercut that is cut close to the scalp is not for everyone, so make sure you have the features to sport this look before chopping off your hair. Whether you choose to expose just a bit of a short buzz cut created at the nape of the neck or go bold and opt for a super short cut on the sides and hidden under longer cut hair, you’re going to look sensational. Style your hair sleek straight and allow just a little bit of your short under layer to show or style your hair wavy, for a cool retro look that will show off you super sexy edgy coiffure.
