The Pixie

Pixie cuts were popularized first in the late 1950s when Audrey Hepburn wore the style in her debut film Roman Holiday, and later in the 1960s by actress Mia Farrow and British supermodel Twiggy.  According to Elle, the pixie cut has been worn by "some of the biggest, boldest, and bravest stars throughout history.  The original jaw-dropping moment in celebrity hair history was certainly the pixie cut. Long, luscious locks are upheld as the ideal image of beauty, so the chop is regarded by many as a fearless moment of change and bravery. It started with Vidal Sassoon giving actress Mia Farrow a (now iconic) gamine 'do for her role in Rosemary's Baby. Nearly 50 years later, it's still one of the most talked about cuts ever.

Men's Undercut

A new breed of men have been created ever since 2010, and this breed is known as the Undercut Men. The Undercut was once the haircut of choice of the military (back in the Second World War), but it soon after was lost into oblivion. Many decades later, in the very-early 2010s, the Undercut hairstyle re-gainedits popularity through the likes of Michael Pitt as Jimmy Darmody in Boardwalk Empire as well as through the likes of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
