We are all guilty of trying to recreate our favourite celebrity’s hairstyle at some point in our lives. But, I’m not sure this is one that we will be lining up outside the barber shop for…
The buzz cut seems to be creeping its way up as the new ‘it’ hairstyle amongst celebrities at the moment. And we have to admit, although we may not be rushing out ourselves to imitate it, their boldness and bravery is to be admired. With ladies such as Cara Delevigne, Katy Perry, and Zoe Kravitz embracing the barely there hairstyle, the change is refreshing and we definitely think they can pull it off.
Why now? Perhaps it comes off the back of this new age feminism; women across the globe, particularly in a position of influence, using it as an opportunity to break down the barriers of gender, because the buzz cut without a doubt obscures the way we perceive femininity. However, that being said, we can confirm that each of the ladies still maintain a sense of flawless femininity as they sport their new do’s. Their womanhood is by no means jeopardized. We think that in of its own sense is even more empowering.
