Ladies with shaved hair is nothing new. Often referred to as the 鈥淪krillex鈥 haircut after the musician who rocks a similar style, the look we鈥檙e used to seeing usually involves half a head of shaved hair along one side. But as the red carpet season came and went, we unexpectedly saw a new version of shaved hair emerge. Rather than a full-blown side shave, leading ladies like Rosamund Pike opted to keep the hair long on top with a shaved look underneath 鈥 AKA, the undercut.

While the look has been popular in the men鈥檚 department for a while, it鈥檚 only recently beginning to make its way over to the ladies鈥 side. These superstar strands just might inspire you to try the edgy new trend.


Rosamund Pike: Definitely the most subtle undercut, Rosamund鈥檚 style is pretty much undetectable from the front or when her hair is left down. If you want to try the look out but don鈥檛 want anything too crazy, this is the perfect place to start. (Photos via Kevork Djansezian/Frazer Harrison)


Scarlett Johansson: On the opposite end of the spectrum lies the much-discussed new 鈥榙o that Scarlett Johansson debuted at this year鈥檚 Academy Awards. There is definitely no hiding this one. Only opt for this option if you鈥檙e really ready to commit. (Photos via Jason Merritt/Getty)

Natalie Dormer: Slightly ahead of the curve, the Game of Thrones and Hunger Games actress showed off a totally half-shaven head during award season last year. A year later she鈥檚 still sporting the style (because you know, hair takes awhile to grow back), but these days she鈥檚 rocking a slightly less dramatic version of the 鈥榙o, which can be totally hidden when she lets her hair down.
