30 Shaved Hairstyles For Women
Modern hair trends for women are in a moment of embracing an “anything goes” philosophy, where pastel purple and silvery grey are among the hottest hues, and shaved hairstyles for women are one of the biggest style trends. For women who were never into long locks, the shaved hair trend is allowing more freedom for playing around with pixie and bob styles, while even die-hard lovers of insanely long manes are trying undercut and side shaved styles to update their looks. Whether you’ve been inspired by buzz cut babes like Amber Rose or the side shaved styles made popular by women like Kelly Osbourne and Scarlett Johansson, you’ll be reaching for the clippers after checking out 30 of our favorite edgy shaved hairstyles for women.
1Half Shaved Bob
This half shaved style is an edgy option for women who want enough hair to play with different styling methods, as the rest of hair is left long enough to curl or secure in a braided style.
2Shaved Nape With Lotus Design
If you want to use your shaved hairstyle as an opportunity to turn your head into a work of art, try adding trendy hair tattoo to your shaved nape style. This particular lotus design is one of the most popular, but the possibilities are endless if a skilled artist is holding the razor.
3Blonde Buzz Cut
This super short style gets elevated from a basic buzz cut thanks to its honey blonde color, and hair that’s left slightly longer on the top than the back and sides.
4Long Hair With Half Shaved Head
If you’re looking for a shaved hairstyle that still brings tons of feminine glamour, try adding this dramatic, near half shave to your long haired look. For ladies who are attached to having a head full of long locks, this bold look can be a scary one to commit to, but having long hair elsewhere can make it easier to disguise a formerly shaved section of hair if you decide to grow it back out.
5Low Wrap Around Undercut
This low undercut wraps all the way around the head, meaning you can put it on display when you wear your hair up, or just let the sides show when hair is worn down. A crescent moon hair tattoo at the hairline is a nice added detail that will help your undercut hairstyle stand out from the rest.
6Subtle Nape Shave
Subtle shaving in the nape area can help to clean up the appearance of unruly neck hairs, and is easy enough to maintain at home with a decent set of clippers and a reliable friend (or some major skills with a mirror).
7Box Braids With Undercut
Combining a shaved undercut with box braids is a great way to eliminate some weight if you plan on wearing long, heavy braids, and can save damaged sections of hair from being pulled on.
8Shaved Side Panel
The little shaved side panel on this mid-length hairstyle is the perfect accompaniment to this punky shade of electric copper.
9Side Shave With Long Curls
Go full glam with a shaved hairstyle by combining your buzzed side section with long, luscious curls and over-the-top accessories. Ladies who really want to dress up can go for the geometric hair tattoo pictured, but you can stick to the basics if you’d rather do your own shaving upkeep at home.
10Lavender Undercut Look
With high shaved sides that wrap around the back, more than half of Kelly Osbourne’s head is bare in her iconic lavender undercut look. More than just a fun and edgy trend, this particular shaved hairstyle can help to slim the face by adding volume to the top of the head.
11Geometric Shaved Nape
This shaved nape hairstyle packs a big style punch into a relatively small area. You probably won’t feel like you’ve lost much hair, but this small space is enough to show off some geometric designs whenever you wear your hair up.
12Buzzed Bowl Cut
Once the definition of a bad home haircut, the bowl cut is making waves among cutting-edge women who are into avant garde, boundary pushing fashion choices. This version of the bowl cut takes the look in an extremely short direction, making for an even edgier spin on the style.
13Red Carpet Side Shave
After shaving the side of her head for the role of Cressida in The Hunger Games, Natalie Dormer made the style work with a major dose of glitz and glamour on the red carpet.
14Drop Fade Pixie
This shaved pixie takes style elements from men’s haircuts like a drop faded silhouette and expertly shaved skin fade.
15Pink Mohawk Pixie
A strip of bubblegum pink hair down the centre of the head creates a mohawk look that’s been styled to chic perfection with a soft feathery texture.
16Aqua Green Buzz
This ultra short style is bold yet feminine thanks to its jewel-toned green color that plays nicely off of deeper skin tones and golden brown eyes.
17Geometric Shaved Part
If you’re looking for an incredibly unique shaved hairstyle, this geometric slice detail will absolutely have you standing out in a crowd. One downside to a bold shaved style like this one is that the growing out process can be a pain, and you might want to switch to a super short pixie once you’re ready to leave this style behind.
18Angled Half Shave
Go bold with this slightly angled shaved style that sees almost half of the head shaved right down to the scalp, while the remainder of the style is left in a very long style. Anyone new to shaved hairstyles might want to test out a smaller area before leaping to this look, and should be prepared for the long and often annoying growing out period.
19Side Shaved Long Pixie
Miley’s Cyrus’ pixie style makes use of shaved sides to create a nice contrast between the longer pieces on top, and made big style waves as part of the singer’s transition from young Disney starlet to edgy pop risk-taker.
20Side Shave With Short Bangs
Combine ultra short bangs and a shaved side panel for the ultimate combination of bold style choices that flatter and frame the face.
21Shaved Leopard Print Detail
Put those short hairs in your shaved sides to work as a canvas to be painted on! Leopard print is one of the more popular artistic dye jobs, but the possibilities are endless!
22Basic Buzz Cut
This buzz cut is basic in the sense that it features no fading, designs, or pastel dye jobs, but Natalie Portman looks anything but basic in this bold shaved hairstyle. Famously captured on film for her turn in “V For Vendetta”, this clipper cut is the ultimate rebuttal to anyone who believes that all women should have long hair.
23Short Bob With Shaved Nape
We love a shaved neck with a super short bob, and it’s the perfect way to show off your shaved style at all times. For women with thick hair, you’ll love the light, bouncy feeling that comes along with no bulky hair sitting on your neck, especially in warmer months.
24Pixie With Geometric Hair Tattoo
If lotus flowers aren’t really your thing, try a more abstract geometric hair tattoo in the back of your shaved pixie style.
25Two Level Shaved Bob
Part sleek bob and part edgy shaved look, this hairstyle shows skill and artistry with two different lengths on the shaved side that are separated by a razor line. This shaved hairstyle won’t be easy for amateurs to keep trimmed at home, but getting the precise details just right are worth making regular visits to the salon.
26Hard Part Pixie
Between the faded sides and hard part shaved right into the hair, this pixie is proof that traditionally masculine details have a place in all kinds of hairstyles.
27A Line Bob With Undercut
The undercut nape of this A-Line bob is working overtime to make this stellar hairstyle come together. Not only does the shaved area help to bring a staple bob into the modern style moment, but it also removes bulk for women with thick hair, and allows for an ultra dramatic angle from back to front.
28Straight Fringe Pixie
Going for a short pixie haircut with a straight fringe across your brow can bring the same face-framing properties of any set of bangs to your short haired look. Wearing your pixie pushed forward will keep a shorter cut from looking masculine, even with prominent shaving around the back and sides.
29Shaved Sides With Bangs
Don’t feel like giving up your beloved bangs to wear a shaved hairstyle? You don’t have to! Bangs can often add a feminizing touch that plays interestingly with partially shaved hairstyles rather than clashing with them.
30Boy Inspired Undercut
Rihanna’s red undercut style is an interesting combination of a modern bowl cut and a masculine inspired pixie, making it the perfect partially shaved hairstyle for pop music’s edgiest trendsetter.
