Three Ways To Rock Shaved Sides (Yes, It’s Doable In Real Life)

If you feel so inclined to give the shaved-on-one-side hair trend a whirl, here are a few ideas for the bold and the bashful.

1. Go All-Out. That’s exactly what 24-year-old Tiffany Mendez, who I spotted on the street, is doing with this hairstyle here. She’s so committed to her daring look, that she shaves her head every day. And can we talk about her awesome teal streak? She’s showing it off brilliantly with a side-swept braid. I like the mix of toughness and femininity she’s got going on.

2. Try One Close-Cropped Section. Rihanna’s version is still very rock n’ roll, but in a tamer way because her hair is only buzzed-off above her ear. I love this style on her, but I know I can’t get too attached–the woman is known for her constant hair switcheroos.

3. Fake It! Channel your inner bad girl (for a day) by copying the faux undercut style seen at the Tracy Reese Spring 2013 runway show. Hair pro Jeanie Syfu gave the models a shaved effect by creating a hidden, low cornrow braid on one side. So sneaky, yet so chic.

Are you into the shaved sides thing? Yay or nay? Personally, I love it.

BTW, I think Lil’ Kim-inspired hair and colorful Afros are pretty cool too!
