If you’re thinking of switching up your hair, why not consider the asymmetrical haircut? You can stick to the same color (or change it, girl!), while ending up with a brand-new look! When you’re ready to bring out your chic side, come down to Salon Antoine and let us start working on your locks. You can find us at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA, and we can’t wait to meet you!

What is an Asymmetrical Haircut?

It’s edgy, it’s exciting, it’s timeless. The asymmetrical haircut is a timeless and stunning haircut where one side of your hair is longer than the other. Thanks to its unbalanced look, you instantly create a statement with your hair. You know why else the asymmetrical haircut is so popular? It’s flattering for any and every face shape! In no time, it will bring out your eyes, lips, and beautiful features. Plus, celebrities have been rocking this haircut for years because it’s so show-stopping. From Cyndi Lauper back in the 80’s to Rihanna, Rita Ora, and Victoria Beckham more recently, this style is here to stay! Whether your hair is just merely asymmetrical or one side is a much different length, it won’t make it any less bold. Also, it doesn’t matter if you’re rocking this style straight, curly, wavy, or chopped, you’ll make a lasting impression as soon as you leave the house!

Flattering Styles

If you aren’t sure which exact style is just right for you, no problem! We’ll name a few here that are sure to turn heads your way more than once no matter the cut you opt for. The first one we’re absolutely crazy about is the asymmetrical pixie cut. As you might know, pixie cuts are short, but adding a variation by keeping one side longer adds a whole new, striking look! And if you want to prevent your hair from looking too heavy and bulky on one side, you might consider adding some layers here and there to soften it up. Another one of our forever-favorites is the asymmetrical bob. It’s the perfect cut for the modern woman. It’s simple yet fabulous and is sure to emphasize your jawbone. Plus, whether you curl it, wear it messy with some waves, or stick to straight, you can’t go wrong! Since you’ll also have the longer length, you can easily add volume and texture in no time as you show off the unbalance too. Lastly, we have to touch on the fact that adding bangs to your asymmetrical cut makes all the difference. One of the sides will be way longer while the other side is kept short, allowing you to have the best of both worlds. You’ll instantly draw attention to the different sides and all eyes will be on you! They also add an edgy appearance and you can always pin them back when you choose to as you still accentuate the overall look. Other days, you might be in the mood to part your bangs to the middle and we say, do it. There’s no one way to slay bangs!

To keep your asymmetrical cut looking gorgeous for days on end, we recommend getting a trim every six to eight weeks. This will keep your hair healthy, fresh, and stylish for days on end. You’ll also want to refrain from washing your hair every day. This way, you can maintain the shine and prevent dryness. Investing in the perfect shampoo and conditioner is just as important too! Don’t worry, we can suggest the right ones for your hair type if you haven’t found the perfect hair-care items just yet. With the right hair products, you’ll avoid frizz and keep your hair looking smooth and soft. We know you’ll want to style your hair often, but in this case, we also suggest to invest in a heat protectant, which will prevent breakage that can easily be seen in short hair. Just following these few simple steps each day will make all the difference in your asymmetrical cut!
