Let’s face it, gender labels when it comes clothing and makeup have become more like a suggestion. Why put yourself in a box when style is a form of self-expression, right? That said, you might want to consider ditching the “for women” or “for men” restrictions when looking for your next haircut peg.
To be honest, hairstyles are really only defined by hair length. You can’t sport a pixie if you don’t cut your tresses short, nor can you do bombshell waves when you’ve got a chin length ‘do. Gender doesn’t really come into the picture when it comes to hair length, but it does factor in when you talk about “styling.”
Stereotypically, a cut for women would push for softening one’s features, while haircuts for men are meant to strengthen their face shape. But the idea of changing your look to either temper your features or highlight is practically applicable no matter your gender. It’s really all just up to you.
So, if you’re looking for a hairstyle that neither leans towards being too feminine nor too masculine, then you’re in luck. We’ve rounded up a slew of styles that are simply flattering—no labels required.
10 Genderless Haircuts That Are Undeniably Flattering
1. Layered lob with curtain bangs
It’s safe to say that your favorite K-pop boy group had at least one member sport this ‘do. They probably even sported a blonde or jet-black color to complement this cool cut, too! But whether or not you’re a K-pop fan, this style is undeniably flattering on anyone as it frames your face beautifully while the layers add volume to your ‘do!
2. Blunt bob with Hime Cut layers
The hime cut, which is characterized by blunt cut layers parallel to the jaw or cheekbones, looks more gender neutral when paired with a sleek and short bob! This is also a streamlined cut boys can get if they’re a fan of a more manageable bob.
Love or hate the mullet, there’s no denying that this haircut adds character to anyone’s look! If you dare to go a little experimental, may we suggest you pair this choppy and bold style with an equally head-turning hair color!
4. One-length long hair
Hear us out, long hair is actually pretty gender-neutral! As proven by Jared Leto and Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness, long and luscious waist-length tresses look stunning on anyone! The trick is to make sure you lessen the frizz and keep your hair looking healthy, shiny, and full of life!
5. Textured lob
The lob is a versatile cut for more reasons than one. Topping that list is the fact that it looks good on everyone. You don’t even need to alter the cut at all! This length and style is also perfect if you want to show off some texture and love sexy beach waves!
6. Textured lob with wispy bangs
Long wispy bangs definitely work to transform your look when you want to soften your features. They are also easy to tuck away if you want a sleeker appearance. That said, it’s a style even boys should consider just because it’s so versatile to style!
7. Short Boyfriend Bob
The boyfriend bob basically gained popularity because it’s a style that’s borrowed from the boys. Though this is also like a long pixie cut, there’s also a bit of a bowl-cut aspect to it that sculpts your head and face seamlessly.
8. Pixie Bob Hybrid
Back in the ‘90s, most boys would sport the "bixie" as the counterpart to the “Rachel” cut that was a hit among girls. Now, women prefer this cut, too, because it’s pretty low-maintenance and frames your face to highlight your jaw.
9. Blunt bob
The blunt bob is a classic and has been worn by both men and women over the years. This is the perfect style to go for if you’d like a tidy and polished look that’s also super easy to change up.
10. Pixie Cut
We can’t close this list without the effervescent pixie! The cut that was all the rage back in the ‘60s and is now a staple option when you want a breezy, wash-and-wear ‘do no matter the season. Though the pixie cut may have another term in barbershops, this style is practically as genderless as they come.
