The Disconnected Undercut Hairstyle Is Having Its Moment in 2017

A standout among the most well known haircuts today, the disconnected undercut has been promoted by popular shows like Boardwalk Empire and Peaky Blinders. The best part about it is that you can style it in various ways. Aside from that, it generally creates an impression. It’s an extremely exemplary style, while still being trendy.

Essentially, it’s characterized as firmly shaven sides with long hair on top and no or negligible blur. For this situation, I have enough hair for a side part and I have it in an awesome style that draws back to the 1920’s and 1930’s. So before you can style it, you need the correct cut.

The benefit of this hair style is that it can be styled from various perspectives; you can make a vintage look, or a 90’s look, or a rocker look, and it truly all relies on upon what hair products you use.

The style was famous with close cut sides in the 1910’s, 20’s, 30’s and the 40’s. In the late 40’s and 50’s, they had a new style altogether, the purported quiff beat. Today’s look  is a blend of these styles, so it is essentially up to you to decide what looks best with your own face shape.
