Why Bleached Buzzcuts Became Trendier Than Colored Hair

Colorful hair used to be a major fashion statement. Now, colored hair has become a normal part of the hair scene across the country. 

Celebrities like Seth Rogen and Pete Davidson have decided to buzz off their hair and saturate it with bleach. Their lighter locks draw even more attention to these fashionable celebs, and for a good reason — bleached buzzcuts just look cool!

That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with rocking a colorful style — everyone has their own hair preferences. If you want to learn how to make a bleached buzzcut work for you, we’re here to help. 

Step 1. Evaluate Your Style 

The first step you should take is to look at your style as a whole. Do you often participate in edgier hair and fashion trends? Are you more of a conformist? Depending on how bold you like to keep your locks, you may want to either pass or accept the challenge of this new hair trend. 

If you have a modern, grunge style that flows with the latest trends (like bleached buzzcuts), this new look will suit you very well. It also works for people who follow more tame fashion trends but still like an element of surprise in their appearance. 

Step 2. Part Ways With Your Long Locks

No matter how long your hair is now, if you opt for a bleached buzzcut, it’s definitely going to feel different. The longer your hair, the more of a shock a buzzcut will be. Be emotionally prepared for this change and understand that hair can take a long time to grow back. 

Also be prepared to adjust to a new routine since buzzcuts don’t require much maintenance. You may choose to add other steps to your nightly self-care rituals instead. 

Step 3. Decide on a Shade of Blonde

All blond hair is not created equal. Some people who rock a bleached buzzcut opt for the bright yellow look, which requires little to no toner. Others prefer an ashy, silvery blond that needs regular maintenance to keep it from becoming warmer in tone. 

Bleached hair soaks up any color deposits much more easily than darker hair. This means that if you want to add color later on, the bleached ‘do makes it easy. 

Look at photos online and decide which shade suits you best. You can always change your mind later since toner eventually washes out. 

Step 4. Upkeep Your Bleach Buzzcut

Maintaining a buzzcut is relatively simple and can be done at home. Or you can book an appointment with our salon every few weeks to keep it in tip-top shape. The blonde itself will need to be redone every 4-6 weeks. You should probably see us every month or 6 weeks to keep this look fresh.
