At this point, you’ve probably heard about tons of viral new hair trends from the “butterfly cut” to the “scandi hairline” and everything in between thanks to TikTok and Instagram. As summer quickly approaches, many of us are looking to make a change when it comes to our hair, but the question of whether or not any one of these viral ‘do’s will suit us still looms. Luckily, the latest style in viral hair hysteria is known for its versatility; it’s made to suit everyone.
What Is a “Clavicut?”
The “clavicut,” as it’s being called, is a mid-length hair style that is quickly gaining popularity for looking good on everyone who tries it. Staying true to its anatomical name, the clavicut falls right at the collar bones, making it a “just right” kind of length: not too short but not too long either.
Not required but also common of the cut is a subtle inversion from back to front, meaning that the length lays slightly longer towards the front.
Why Is the “Clavicut” Trending?
Though this sort of hair cut has been around for a while, we’re seeing a resurgence in this medium-length cut as many people are hoping to shed some weight as the hot, summer months roll in. Another reason this cut has gained so much popularity is because it adds lift regardless of hair texture. Though the style tends to remove length, the shape also adds some often much-needed lift and often volume especially with curlier, more textured hair types. Additionally, for people with naturally straight hair, the clavicut provides a sleek, sexy look with little to no styling necessary.
If you’re looking for a way to shed some summer hair weight but you don’t want to dive into a full-on bob, you may want to join the masses who are raving over this universal hairstyle and consider talking to your hairdresser about a “clavicut.”
