Definition of Disconnected Haircut

Definition: Disconnected Haircut

The next time you're feeling particularly edgy, why not consider getting a disconnected haircut? A disconnected cut can be short, long, or a combination thereof, and can vary in shape — but its distinguishing characteristic is the step (or steps) in extreme lengths that occur within the style.

It's almost like two cuts (or more) in one, since the different lengths are not blended together. Because of this, disconnected cuts also typically have lots of texture and movement. Hairstylists often use disconnection to show off a certain element of the haircut or to highlight a cool color. Are you feeling bold?

Pink definitely does know how to rock short hair. I am now missing my funkier hairstyle from a few years back!

Pink might be the only person that could pull off gray hair and make it look so adorable and fresh-she looks fantastic in the picture!!!

I'm so into these disconnected haircuts! The long pieces (particularly on top and around the face) give the perfect touch of femininity. I also love La Roux's funky version of the cut: http://carmentafoya.wordpress.com/2011/01/03/first-hairstyle-of-2011/ - carmentafoya.com
