Kristen Stewart and More Stars Get the Undercut Hairstyle | Hair Trends

The undercut is not a new trend. In fact, it's a revival: versions of it date back to the Edwardian era, as well as the jazz age of the '20s and '30s. The shaven style continuously evolved, shooting back to popularity during the glam metal era of the '80s, and now is prominent in modern-day looks. Because we've seen a slew of celebrities showing off the look as of late, we wanted to explore the less drastic version — the braided faux undercut — sported on the likes of Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Aniston, and Cara Delevingne.

7 Tips for Caring for Oily Hair

Oily hair is commonly seen as the hardest to deal with. People wash their hair to strip it of the oils and grease but this actually makes the situation worse. It encourages the hair to produce more oils. Those who use conditioners, especially leave-in ones, will also find that their hair looks greasier over a shorter period of time. However, looking for ways to care for the hair isn't impossible. Here are seven tips to help improve the look of your hair and stop looking like a chip pan!

Wash Your Hair Every Other Day

As mentioned, washing your hair every day may make you feel like you're taking out all the grease but it encourages the scalp to produce more oils. Limit your hair washing to every other day. Some people, such as Jessica Simpson, limit their hair washing to once or twice a month and rinse it on a regular basis.

Avoid 2-in-1 Shampoos and Conditioners

A 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner may save time but it makes your hair worse. While trying to strip your hair of the oils, grease and dirt, it is trying to add more oil in. It simply doesn't give your hair the wash it deserves, let alone helping to deal with greasy hair. Opt for separate products. They may cost more and take up more time but they are worth it for sleek-looking hair.

Avoid Conditioning the Roots

If you need to use conditioner, keep it away from the roots as much as possible. If your roots do cause a problem, place the bulk of the conditioner at the tips and then lightly run your fingers through your roots. Use as little conditioner as possible as your scalp will already produce the oils that the hair needs.

Find Products Specifically for Your Hair Type

Products that are designed for oily hair are better. They have been specifically made for those with excess oils and help to add fewer oils back into the hair when conditioning. This can take time to find as you choose the different products. Invest in the small, travel sized options while you try to find something that helps with your oil production.

Watch Out for Your Styling Products

If you use styling products, look for those that are water-based. Anything that is creamy will just add more oil to your hair and makes greasy-looking hair worse. Read the ingredients-there are some specifically designed for oily hair.

Avoid Over-brushing Your Hair

Brushing too much spreads the natural oils into your hair more and makes it look worse. Brush your hair enough to make it neat but no more than that. Avoid brushing your hair when wet as this damages it.

Stop Playing With Your Hair

Your hands develop oils naturally too. When you play with your hair, you add the oil from your hands into your hair, making it worse. Avoid playing and twirling your hair; it's an annoying habit for people to watch anyway!
