The Undercut Is Back! Taraji Slays With Undercut Sleekness & Variety

The Undercut Is Back! Taraji Slays With Undercut Sleekness & Variety


For some I know it never left, but for many naturals, rocking the undercut has faded away into hairstyle heaven. Welp, bring that bad boy back because on the red carpet, Taraji, the mega-goddess of film, TV and Hollywood has rocked that undercut/undershave harder, and in more styles than what should legally be allowed!


So sorry for being late on this cut but as always, family comes first and had to take care of some things out of town for a few days. But now, I’m back and loving this hair that the lovely Taraji is sharing! You can thank her go-to hairstylist Tym Wallace for this sexy and perfect-intro-to-spring haircut. What makes it so  special is the sleek straightness and the varying styles he creates to give her phenomenal looks at each red carpet event. 

From the Sag Awards to the Grammy’s Taraji brought it with all fierceness and that undercut that many find limiting, stepped up to the challenge for each red carpet walk-through.

Even having fun with the girls in a sexiest dress I’ve ever seen her rock, her hair is flawless and mirrors the elegance of the gown.

Not to be upstaged, the look is even gorg with exposed bobby pins. Tym explained,  “I added an excessive amount black bobby pins to secure her hair on either side. I stacked them and crossed them over one another to form a unique and playful design,” Tym told HypeHair.

“To create the look, Tym first prepped Taraji’s hair using Dove’s new DermaCare line. Once cleansed, he distributed a dime-sized amount of Dove Absolute Curls Supreme Crème Serum ($6) throughout her hair from root to tip and blow dried her natural hair with a paddle brush. 


He then flat-ironed to smooth out her and edged up her undercut. He then added a soft center part, following up with another application of Dove’s serum to slick down hair and add shine.” HypeHair

Just as Tym suggests the undercut is a great way to spice up a haircut, we think we will be seeing more of this edgy cut with straighter styles and not just on the red carpet. Any takers?
