7 Stylish Shaved Hairstyles As Seen On Iris Law and Adwoa Aboah

Propelled by ’60s counterculture, the hairstyle first started cropping up (pardon the pun) in the alternative music scene, often accessorized with leather cladding and statement combat boots. But it was when celebrities like Sinéad O’Conner and Demi Moore adopted the bold cut that shaved hairstyles became a part of mainstream discourse, encouraging a wave of shorter styles. While times have changed with the haircut becoming less of a social statement and more of an everyday beauty practice, it’s important to remember that hairstyles are cyclic and will often reappear like JLO and Ben Affleck’s relationship.

However, this time, it feels different.

Unlike its appearance in the ’90s, the buzzed haircut is less of an aesthetic choice and more of a sign of the times we’re living in. After spending a year bound to our respective homes, coming to terms with who we are and our new world order, the buzz cut signifies a fresh start. One that encourages self-acceptance and is unrestrained by set beauty standards. Before you welcome your new post-Covid aesthetic, we recommend looking at the best and boldest buzzcuts, from models to actresses, that most definitely deserve a place on your hairstyle pinboard.
