Hair Cut

Hair is such an important part of your outfit and yet often overlooked. A haircut says so much about your personality and a good haircut can really make a signature statement. On a daily basis, we plan just the clothes and accessories that we’re gonna put on, and the hair is always an after-thought. However, hair is usually one of the first things people notice about you.

Haircuts are a great way to physically express personality and attitude. They can even be used to celebrate changes and recognize the beginning of a new personal chapter. 

Different people get haircuts for different reasons. If you don’t like your current haircut, expert guidance can help guide you to make any necessary corrections. We have a different hairstyle to choose from that meets your expectations so that you can make the appropriate choices.

Hairstyle correction or haircut refers to fixing something that you’re unhappy with about your current cut or style. This can range from wildly dramatic to barely noticeable. It all depends on the kind of correction that you are looking for. For example, you could get away with very subtle, minor changes if you are unhappy with the thickness or volume of your hair. However, if you are hoping to correct a previous hair-cutting mistake or aiming to create a dramatic movement you are probably going to need more dramatic solutions.


Hair Cut Techniques

The idea of changing your hair look can be exciting, but haircut techniques and terminology for you can be confusing. o2 Nails Nepal & Beauty Studio offers popular and common types of haircuts and designs, So let’s take a quick look at some of the more common terms and techniques you might hear when it comes to haircuts.

1. Straight Cut

The simplest among all different types of haircuts for long hair, the straight cut is the one where all hair appears to be of similar length. In this haircut, hair ends are trimmed in a way that ends in a straight line at the back when let down.

This is a great hairstyle to have when you want a fuss-free, low-maintenance haircut.  This is also a good option when you want all your hair to look very long.

2. U Cut

It is also similar to the straight cut. The U cut is the type of long hairstyle in which the ends of hair are trimmed to form a curled line, something like a shallow U.

In this haircut, the hair at the center of the back are the longest, and they get slightly shorter towards the corners. This haircut is as great idea for a women who frequently get split-ends or whose hair just doesn’t grow evenly at the back.

3. V Cut

The V cut, as the name suggests, is the sharper version of the U cut. It’s the haircut in which the hair is trimmed in a way that their ends forms the letter V at the back. The hair at the back is the longest in the center and gets shorter towards the corners.

V cut is the one to go for among all the different types of haircuts when you want something unconventional and unnatural. This is kind of an edgy, but high-maintenance haircut, since hair may tend to grow unevenly just within a couple of weeks, and you’ll have to get it re-trimmed to maintain the V shape.

You can also go for this haircut along with layers, where some of the hair at the back are shorter, but the under-layer forms the V shape.

4. layer Cut

The layered cut is one of the most common and stylish among all different types of haircuts for women. In layer cut, the hair is cut in layers, where different strands of hair are of different lengths. The layers are usually cut in a way where the shorter layers are at the front, framing the face, and the longer layers are usually left at the back to show off the length.

Layer cut suits almost all face shapes because there are just so many different types of layer cuts, which we’ll discuss below. This haircut looks great right after a haircut but doesn’t look bad even if you don’t visit the salon regularly. Layer cut looks the best with wavy hair, and looks good with highlights or ombre too.

5. Step Cut

Step cut is the type of haircut where the hair in the front is trimmed in steps or very subtle layers, whereas the hair at the back is not layered at all. This is a great option for women with round or rectangular faces, since the shorter layers can conceal a strong jaw, whereas the longer layers in the front can give an elongated appearance, taking the focus away from a round face shape.

Among the different types of haircuts, this is one of the most well-known but not as well understood. A lot of people confuse step cut with a layered cut, as they give a similar appearance, causing many to think these two are just two different names of the same haircut. However, in layer cut, layers of hair are cut both at the front and at the back, which all can be made out from one another. Whereas in step-cut, the layers are indistinguishable and only at the front.

6. Feather Cut

Feather cut is a version of step or layered cut in which the hair is cut into distinct layers that give the appearance of a feather. The first layer is cut at chin level or an inch above or below the chin. And the the next layers go down in a way that you can make out each layer individually.

This haircut works well for straight and wavy hair, but the feather cut won’t be much visible on curly hair.  This cut is a nice idea to go for if you’re getting it with a blow-dry for a party. But it doesn’t give the same effect without the blow-dry so it’s kinda high maintenance on an everyday basis.

Also, this haircut makes your hair look shorter in the front if you tie it into a ponytail. Plus it’ll give a thinner ponytail, as only the longer layers will be able to be tied.

7. Wolf Cut

The wolf haircut is a mix between a vintage shag and a slight mullet. Essentially, it’s like taking two different periods (the ’70s shag and ’80s mullet) and smashing them together into a modern-day look.”

One of the signature parts of this haircut is its volume and layers — lots of layers. The choppiness and lack of blend in the layers are key to a wolf haircut. Typically, a wolf haircut will offer shorter layers at the top of the head to enhance volume and texture with longer layers in the back. The results offer an edgy, almost undone, messy, rocker vibe.
