Are Rachel Bilson And Miley Cyrus' Faux Under-Cuts Cool Or Try-Hard?

02 August 2012 by

Under-cuts look darned cool don't they? Rihanna, Lourdes, Miley and Rachel all looked super edgy and rock-chic with theirs....WAIT A MINUTE, there are two fakers among this half-head-of-hair crew.

It seems the bravest hair trend of the summer has gone soft on us. Miley and Rachel have managed to create the appearance of an under-cut without actually shaving their heads! Scaredy-cat fashionistas unite! We can now sport the trend without tears at the hairdressers. That's awesome, right?

Well, we're torn in Grazia HQ. As much as we're excited that we have the edgy 'do at our gel-covered fingertips, maybe faking an under-cut is a little lame? Undercuts seem mega hardcore because they involve mega hardcore commitment to an edgy appearance. Like tattoos and piercings, once you've got one their's no going back (at least for a good while).

There's no denying that Bilson and Cyrus look HOT with their severe side partings, but perhaps an under-cut that you can brush out after a couple of hours just isn't that cool, no matter how good it looks.

Do you agree?
