The first post back after a 6 month hiatus we're got a lot of tracks to cover.
The 2 set of pictures we're sharing with you are of Mrs Mac's from late July before a trim and then her latest cut from early August 2013.
The early August cut pictures were taken several weeks after the cut however. So it's from about a week and a half ago.
August 23rd to be precise
I wished I would had taken them right after the cut but didn't get the chance.
When Mrs Mac had gotten her most recent trim/cut in early August, the stylist and herself decided to buzz Mrs Mac's undercut hair down to a short #1 and then fade it to along the sideburns and lower nape to the guard right below number #1 not sure its number. #1/2 perhaps?
It was the summer and she got the shortest buzzing ever. As you can see the rest of her hair has grown a bit as this is Mrs Mac's new style since you last saw her pics in March.
It's taken about 4 months and minor trims but the top has been left alone pretty much so it could grow. Gone are most of Mrs Mac's layers and as you'll see she also grew out her bangs which I'm definetly loving.
This current longer pixie is definetly versatile as Mrs Mac can now flip it on either side to expose the undercut. She also has been styling it various ways to get this look.
One way is she is using a root lifter and then blow drying it back or to the side and then applying a little hair spray. It works a lot better then a gel or wax as you can easily run your finger thru the hair and it falls back into place.
Mrs Mac has also used a flat iron to give it a sleek look as well you will see in several pics she can also air dry it and blow dry it to give it a bit of a wave in front.
This is by far my favorite cut on her.
The added length with no layers on top contrasted with the all over buzzed #1 undercut is truly the best of both worlds.
This is like a bob but with pixie elements and not just a buzzed nape which you get with a bobcut but an all over buzzed undercut.
She's still currently debating if she is going to grow out the top some more to an under cut bob or keep getting it trimmed to keep it it's current length and keep going back to get the back and side's buzzed short.
We've done home rebuzzing thru spring and summer to keep it nice and short and sharp between 6-8 trims.
Especially this summer as it grows pretty fast in the warm weather.
Besides keeping the buzzed part either a short #2 or a short #1 and then faded to a #1/2 you'll notice Mrs Mac has decided to keep the sideburns shorter and squared off and the nape more sharply buzzed defined into a shape as well so it looks a little neater as it grows out.
Next cut is late September.
Until them look for some various post on non Mrs Mac hair subjects.
