The Bowl Cut: Graphic And Dramatic

'Bowl cut'... we hear the words and can't help but smile, transported to childhood photographs and their old-fashioned charm. But today the look is a far cry from a simple silhouette that borders on caricature. Graphic and refined, the contemporary bowl cut is the symbol of innovative style.

A breath of fresh air for your hair

Fringed and short, this edgy pixie cut is a new go-to look. While it was once reserved for children, it's no longer on fashion's fringes, carried along by current trends. With the neck exposed, the face framed and volume guaranteed, this look is synonymous with confidence and modernity.

A haircut for the brave

According to Denis Holbecq, hairdresser for L'Oréal Professionnel, the bowl cut 'energises square, triangle and oval-shaped faces' and is 'exclusively reserved for brunettes'. But beware, if you decide to take up this challenge you need to own this look 100%: regal composure and a well-honed wardrobe are essential.

The importance of styling

The backstage hair stylists of the world's runways appear to have made a unanimous decision, and so the bowl cut is back. To climb the style ranks though, the bowl needed to evolve. Forget helmet hair, the exaggerated cut, curving in and almost fixed in place– today the style is lighter, with a messy-chic effect. By freeing up a few flyaway locks, your stylist can even take things up a notch.
