As the lazy, hazy days of summer come to a close, many of us look forward to fall. With the new season comes new clothes and ‘dos, and when figuring out what type of hair cut you want for fall, it’s important to look at what’s in style, in addition to what you’ll feel comfortable putting a hat over. The Cheat Sheet wants to help you find your perfect fall look, so we’ve found three hair cuts you should avoid getting this autumn.
Stay away from these hair cuts, and you’ll start a new season with a stylish ‘do.
1. The Buzz Cut
Allow me to preface this by saying that there is nothing inherently wrong with a buzz cut. For all intents and purposes, it’s a very cool cut that is incredibly easy to maintain. You can basically just get up and go. But as we move into the colder months of the year, it seems less seasonably fitting to rock a buzz cut. With the fall comes less humidity, which means that it’s actually easier to maintain a longer style. As the temps slowly drop, your head, as well as your body, will thank you for the bushier head of hair insulation. It also look incredibly sexy to grow out your summer buzz.
2. The Man Bun
Complex reported that a recent study sponsored by West Coast Shaving revealed that 35% of American women dislike the man bun, and around 27% said they flat out hate it. To add insult to injury, 58% said they would never date a dude with a man bun, and finally 74% said their significant other would look less attractive with one. Keep this in mind: Very few men can pull off a man bun, and if you do decide to rock one, you have to commit to it 100%.
Plus, just because you feel the need to grow out your hair to keep your head from getting cold, doesn’t mean you should to the point where you can share scrunchies with your girlfriend.
3. Anything reminiscent of summer
It’s time to say so long to your summer hair — whether you were rocking a traditional surfer look or the aforementioned buzz. It’s time to either cut it a little shorter (if you had it long) or grow it out (if you had a buzz). Also, if you happened to dye it blonde or a lighter color than your natural shade, you may want to consider going a few shades darker or back to your natural color for fall.
