Yes, You Can Rock a Bowl Cut

Often mocked and the subject of many memes, bowl cuts have had a rough history. However, our expert stylists here at Salon Antoine want to change all of that with our fresh interpretations. Whether you lean towards edgy or understated, we are ready to help you rock a bowl cut!

If you’re looking for a classic entry into the short-hair look, consider a bowl cut that is characterized by a deep side part and a length that ends just above your earlobe. This adds a softer look, framing your face and is also a great way to show off highlighted hair.

In the middle of road is a bowl cut with a short undercut and long layers on top. Although decidedly more dramatic than a straight, side-swept bowl cut, having extra length on top still adds ease to the look and provides additional styling options. This is also ideal if you have curly or wavy hair, as the length allows you to embrace the natural texture.

For those who are really ready to go for bold, a feathered bowl cut with shaved sides ensures plenty of attention. Keep the front short and straight to evoke a truly iconic look or go with longer bangs for a touch of polish. Keep in mind that this cut will require the most maintenance out of three since you’ll want to make sure that the shaved sides stay as short as possible. We are happy to do a quick touch-up here in our salon or provide tips if you want to do it at home.

In addition to different cut variations, color plays a key role in the overall vibe of a bowl cut. Taking a more classic cut and adding a bold color, such as green or pink, immediately adds fresh personality. Likewise, sticking to natural tones helps tame a more daring silhouette. The multi-dimensional approach of these modern bowl cuts is an ideal backdrop for several shades of contrasting or complementing colors.
