How to Fake an Undercut 2010-07-28 06:00:00

Fake an Undercut in 4 Easy Steps

Ombré highlights may be all the rage in the hair coloring world, but as far as haircuts are concerned, the undercut is the style that's having a moment. Worn by stars like Alice Dellal, Rihanna, and Cassie, along with the always-daring Melanie Brown, the look is not for the faint of heart.

If you like the cut, but don't want to shear away half of your hair to get the edgy effect, you can easily fake it. Get tips on how you can rock the latest trend — without going under the razor — when you read more.

  • First blow-dry the hair using a light-hold gel to tame frizz. This will also give the hair shine and light staying power.
  • Next, create a deep side part.
  • On the nonheavy side of the part, apply more gel (you can even use water) to slick the hair to the side. Use bobby pins placed an inch or two behind the ear to secure. Then, spritz with hairspray to hold. Tip: For a fun twist, crisscross the pins or place them in an offbeat pattern à la Diane Kruger.
  • Brush the hair on the heavy side of the part toward the face or over the eye for emphasis. If you need more lift, simply tease at the roots or lightly spray the roots with hairspray, and blast with a dryer. Another option would be to curl the hair like Kelly Osbourne.
