Can we talk about how amazing it is that shorter hairstyles are back in-vogue for summer 2020? There are barely any more layered cuts or waist grazing lengths as far as the eyes can see. And as someone who is always on the go in the heat; the newfound love for chopped tresses is a blessing in disguise for me.
Having said that, there are only so many ways you can cut your hair comfortably short for it to look good and not get in the way. Long bobs and A-line haircuts have been the leading contenders when it comes to trendy cuts, but I have my eyes set on another chic new style that might just become the ‘IT’ look this season. It also has a cool name... the ‘Clavicut’ has arrived ladies, and I want a piece of it!
What is ‘Clavicut’?
I first spotted the cut on millennial pop sensation, and the uber fashionable, Dua Lipa’s summer album cover. As an avid fan, I thought Dua was probably just growing out her chin-length bob cut from last year. But that changed quickly because a month later, the style was seen on multiple influencers attending fashion weeks, and got its namesake the ‘Clavicut’. This sleek new cut is a whole mood, and I love it.
Short enough to be distinguished as a bob cut and long enough to be put into a ponytail, the ‘Claviuct’ is a collarbone grazing style. The framing style looks good on all hair types. The back strands rest on the nape of your neck, and the front keeps it edgy yet classy with some added length.
Why should you get the ‘Clavicut’ this summer?
Summer is the perfect time to get a cut like this. It is easier to maintain and can be instantly refreshed on day 2. The cut goes just past the shoulders, so it doesn't look too short without the upkeep. If you have thick hair, this won't weigh it down. As for thin hair, a cut like this will ensure your hair doesn’t look stringy. The best part about the cut is that you can experiment with face-framing by laying with the parting... it's like having 5 haircuts in one!
