Though there are a variety of haircut types available, many people prefer a tapered haircut over other styles. A tapered hair cut starts with longer hair on the top of the head and gradually decreases to shorter lengths, with the shortest lengths resting along the ears and neckline.
Originally, a tapered haircut is short and surrounds the crown of the head. The haircut layers down from the crown towards the neckline. Each layer is tapered into the next, with a slightly shorter length then the previous row. The hair around the neckline is the shortest. Often, barbers or stylists will give the hair around the neckline a buzz cut so that the hair is barely visible in comparison to the hair on the crown of the head. The tapered haircut look helps emphasize the shape of a people’s head, while effectively giving the back of the head a smooth shape with sculpted hair. It also cools the back of the neck while leaving a healthy stock of hair on the top of the head for styling.
Both men and women can wear a tapered haircut, although the cut does require the wearer to have shorter hair.Â Other classic styles also feature shorter hair on the top. In some cuts, the hair on the crown of the head is buzzed to 0.5 inches in length or shorter with edges that taper into a shaved style around the neckline. Stylists typically use hair cutting scissors and an electric buzz cutter to get the tapered look for both men and women.Â If you looking for short haircut that easy to do and simple, this cut would be your best option!
