1: Women's cups

Popularized by fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn and, later, Twiggy in the 60s, this short haircut has seen a variety of interpretations over the decades.

Pixie cut

Description: The pixie cut, a timeless symbol of daring and freedom, has its origins in the 1950s. Popularized by fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn and, later Twiggy in the ’60s, this short haircut has seen a variety of interpretations over the decades.

Its main characteristic is its very short length on the sides and back, often with a slightly longer length on the top of the head. It has been adopted by many celebrities, reinforcing its place as a chic and daring hairstyle choice.

Advantages: The main advantage of the pixie cut is its easy maintenance. Perfect for dynamic women, it requires few styling products and can be styled in minutes. This cut is ideal for those who want a simplified morning routine without compromising elegance.

Styling tips: To style a pixie, use a small amount of wax (for example, Kevin Murphy‘s Free.Hold) or gel to define strands and add texture. For a more feminine look, opt for slightly longer locks on top and use your fingers or a round brush to give them volume. This cut offers a multitude of styles, from the most classic to the most avant-garde.

Bob Long

Description: The long bob, or lob (long bob), is a modern evolution of the classic bob.

Originating in the 1920s, the bob has always been a symbol of modernity and emancipation. The lob offers more length, usually stopping just above the shoulders, allowing greater styling versatility. It comes in different versions, from the straightest to the most unstructured, and can be adapted to all face shapes.

Advantages: Lob is renowned for its ease of styling and versatility. It can be worn smooth or wavy, depending on the occasion and mood. This cut is perfect for those who want to keep a certain length without the burden of tedious maintenance.

Styling tips: For an everyday look, use a straightening iron (Dyson Corrale) or curling iron (Dyson Airwrap) to create light waves, giving your hair movement and texture. Styling products such as texturizing sprays (Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray) or volumizing mousses (Oribe Grandiose) can add body and definition to the cut.

Wavy bob

Description: The wavy bob is a modern cut that combines elegance and casualness. Characterized by chin-length or slightly longer, this cut is often accompanied by soft waves that add a touch of casual sophistication. It has become popular for its chic allure and ability to flatter a variety of faces and hair textures.

Advantages: The wavy bob is low-maintenance and fashionable. Natural or created waves add volume and texture without the need for intensive styling.

Styling tips: To maintain beautiful waves, use a curling iron to create loose curls, then run your fingers through to loosen them. Applying a texturizing spray (Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray) or a light mousse can help maintain waves throughout the day. For a natural look, let your hair air-dry and apply a little product to define the waves.

2: Men's cups

Crew Cut

Description: The crew cut, a timeless classic in men’s hairstyling, has its origins in the military and university ranks. This cut is characterized by hair cut very short on the sides and back, with a slightly longer length on top of the head. Historically, it was chosen for its practicality and clean look, and continues to be popular for the same reasons.

Advantages: The crew cut is one of the easiest cuts for men to maintain. Its short length means it requires very little styling on a daily basis and remains effortlessly elegant. It’s ideal for men who prefer a minimal hair care routine while maintaining a well-groomed appearance.

Styling tips: To maintain a crew cut, it’s important to keep the length uniform, refreshing the cut every 3 weeks. For styling, a little wax (Rough.Rider, Easy.Rider from Kevin Murphy) can be used to add texture or volume on top, but overall, this cut requires very few products.

The buzz cut, known for its simplicity and rawness, has a military history, where it was favored for its ease of management and clean appearance.

Long and Textured cut

Description: The long, textured men’s haircut is a growing trend that defies the traditional norms of men’s hairstyling. This cut is characterized by hair that reaches at least to the nape of the neck, often accompanied by layers to create texture and movement. Inspired by the bohemian look and rock style of the ’70s, this cut offers a free-spirited yet polished aesthetic, ideal for those who want to express their individuality.

Benefits: Although long hair requires more attention than short cuts, this long, textured cut offers remarkable styling versatility. It allows a variety of hairstyles, from natural loose styles to sophisticated ponytails, and can be adapted to different hair types, from straight to wavy.

Styling tips: For styling, a serum or styling cream (Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream by Oribe) can be used to define layers and add texture. Hair can be left loose for a natural look or tied up for a more formal style.

Buzz Cut

Description: The buzz cut, known for its simplicity and rawness, has a military history, where it was favored for its ease of management and clean appearance. This cut involves a long, uniform, very short haircut over the entire head, often achieved with clippers.

Advantages: Buzz cut is extremely easy to maintain, requiring no styling. It’s ideal for men looking for a strong, minimalist approach, and for those who prefer to spend as little time as possible on their hair routine.

Styling tips: Maintaining a buzz cut mainly involves keeping the length balanced, with regular touch-ups to keep it sharp. No styling products are needed, although some men choose to use a little gel or moisturizer to keep the scalp healthy.
