The world of haircuts is full of charming models for all tastes and colors. Many hairstyles are familiar to us for a long time, so we don’t pay much attention to them. However, some make you turn around and keep the look of their owners. Today we are going to raise the curtain on the tomboy haircut, one of the most controversial and curious haircuts in the world of fashion.
What is it
No one should be surprised by the bright images in which models with short hair flaunt. Short hair is not news, however, “tomboy” occupies a separate place in the world of hairstyles.
What is its characteristic, we will see? Let’s take it in order. Translated from the English word tomboy means “tomboy”, “hooligan”, “fidget”. Based on a single name, one can guess that it is a “boyish” haircut, which has a slightly rebellious, bold, and fearless character.
“Tomboy” – unisex haircut, which is performed mainly on short hair, but the female version of the presentation can be performed on medium and long hair in the latest trend in fashion.
The mandatory components of this haircut are:
- asymmetry in general;
- carelessly falling torn strands;
- Open neck and temples;
- elongated asymmetrical bangs.
The hairstyle has a note of artistic negligence, and due to the lack of precise rules for performance, it can, at the request of its owner, include shaved sections. This hairstyle represents the multi-level contrast elements and you need a style, with which you can embody countless styles and images.
Why do women choose tomboy?
Most often it is the choice of strong and strong-willed women and ladies, but thanks to the styling styles, the tomboy hairstyle can be worn with romantic shades in the image.
Consider the reasons for choosing this haircut.
- Nothing else. Hair takes definition in a way that is easy to care for.
- Pretty easy styling with an extensive selection of styles.
- There is an opinion that trials of male hairstyles on the female head, contrary to logic, emphasize femininity and fragility.
- Split ends problems disappear. Hair looks healthy, hair alive.
- In general, the view is always well maintained and clean, and with a minimum of effort.
There are many advantages to a haircut. For those who decided to change the style and length of hair, “tomboy” is a very interesting option.
Who is the right one?
“Tomboy”, like almost all short haircuts, is not suitable for all women. When choosing this hairstyle, one should take into account not only the shape of the face, but also the character himself, as well as the peculiarities of his physique. It should be noted that age does not play a special role – the “tomboy” can decorate the heads of both young fashionistas and more mature ladies.
As already said, the physique plays an important role: “Tomboy” looks especially good on women with a slender figure, and women with curvy shapes are recommended to choose more feminine hairstyles. This haircut represents a wide variety of options, so it suits almost any face shape.
For example, girls with round and square face shapes will have oblique bangs and side parts in combination with the basal volume. Owners of an elongated face can be satisfied with a wider choice of hairstyle that we are discussing, the only nuance is a well-chosen long bang.
In any case, the ideal style for each person is selected individually by the master.
As noted above, it is important in the choice of hairstyle and the very nature of its owner. This hairstyle will complement the image of bold, outstanding, and creative people with a determined disposition. In essence, a woman’s appearance is a projection of her inner world.
Can teenagers use it?
Haircut “Tombo” entered the list of the most glamorous and popular hairstyles for young fashionistas. Young beauties tend to “experiment” with their image. Rebellious in spirit, with an inexhaustible desire to show themselves, the young women find different types of styles every day for their individual “tomboy” model.
This short haircut on the hair of girls 13 years and older creates a playful effect, emphasizing their unique look.
But even at this young age, it is necessary to keep in mind that not everyone is suitable for tomboy. As already mentioned, girls with refined features with a slim build can show off this modern hairstyle. This does not mean that other types of haircuts are prohibited. Of course, we do not only indicate those cases in which a spectacular appearance is guaranteed.
Older girls can complement their hairstyle with a play of colors: coloring, highlighting, selection of individual strands. The use of multi-colored hair chalks – the latest novelty among young people.
Young lovers of tomboy haircuts tend to complement their unique image with different accessories. In addition to bobby pins, scarves, and headbands, girls still love to collect long sections of hair in their original tails. The elements of shaving certain areas of the head are also the resurgent trend of the edgy youth. You can shave the occipital region, the temples, or directly one side of the head.
The haircut has its varieties. Consider them
Classic torn tomboy
This version of the hairstyle involves the use of a razor and is done using a blunt cut. High-quality hair filing plays a key role in achieving the effect of unevenness and “unevenness”. Negligence and randomness of the tips of the hair – a successful result of the wizard.
This type of hairstyle is based on a short “bob”. The length of the hair is no more than 15–17 cm. The principle of implementation coincides with the previous version of the cut, except for the uniformity of the strands, which protrude throughout the head of different lengths.
There is no sample performance, each hairstyle in this style turns out to be a unique masterpiece.
But fashion, as always, continues to surprise me. Today, in addition to the two versions described, there are many other variations of the tomboy haircut: you can add four-sided elements and lengthen the strands, fantasize with bangs, play with colors and wear different accessories to achieve the desired result. In this way, an individual image is created: for someone in a retro style, for others – with romantic shades of femininity.
“Tomboy” needs to keep the correct shape, like any short haircut. Therefore, you will need to visit the salon at least once every 3-4 weeks. Also at home, you should make a simple style for a casual look or special occasion, if necessary. But the styling can be done independently. To achieve the desired style you will need different tools: skins, mousses, gels, and varnishes. A short hair must be fixed, sometimes even with an iron grip.
The placement must necessarily solve 3 objectives. Consider each one separately.
- Volume Achievement: Short haircuts look more impressive if complemented by volume.
- Highlighting strands and creating clear lines – asymmetrical feathers, the length of the set is the strong point of the tomboy haircut.
- Underline form: “tomboy” – a unique hairstyle. Using the right style, you can emphasize the dignity of the face and hide the flaws.
With the help of style, you can vary the styles: retro, avant-garde, classic and others. It is worth remembering that the more avant-garde you want to look, the more style you will have to wear.
You can use the following style options for yourself.
As one of the options, you can comb the long front part of the hair and fix all the gel and varnish, creating an image in a retro or classic style.
You can brush your hair to the side.
For young owners of tomboy hair, there is an opportunity to collect along part of the hair in the tail.
