It may seem counterintuitive to cut or dye your hair for one awareness month out of the year. However, styling your hair for Pride month can actually help boost your confidence and show your Pride. From dyeing hair in fun rainbow shades to gender neutral haircuts, styling your hair is a great way to express yourself, especially if you’re attending a Pride event.
Gender neutral haircuts are a way that many people choose to express their identities. Cuts no longer have to be either masculine or feminine – there are now plenty that are regarded as more gender neutral, according to 63% of All Things Hair readers. A gender neutral cut is a way to show that traditional gender assumptions no longer apply – to challenge and to look fabulous while doing so. As such, below are five general neutral haircuts that you can wear for Pride 2022.
Popular for decades, the classic pixie is simply a short-cropped style. It has been a way for women to rock short hair for a long time, but the classic pixie can work on anyone, however they identify.
The classic pixie has always been a way for women to show off bold short hair. It can also look great on males, providing a softer look that is ideal for Pride 2022. Anyone who is non-binary can pull off this fabulous gender-neutral look, as well.
In recent years, shaved styles have hit the fashion scene in full force. Gone are the days when they were only for cis-gendered men. Now, the half/one-sided buzz, getting a shaved style on both sides with long hair at the top or even a full buzz cut can be a fun statement look for anyone. Because these styles are more of a statement look, they also pair very well with styles like rainbow hair or other wild punky color styles.
Traditionally worn by women, now anyone can wear the shaggy bob. It’s a casual bed-head look that typically goes down to around the jawline. Because of the medium length, it has taken on a more general-neutral use. People who identify as male, female, non-binary or anything in between can wear it and look fabulous.
Angled or wavy pixie
Another pixie style is the angled or wavy look. Typically, one lock of hair will be angled around the face or left longer to about jaw level. It’s a great look since it adds that long, fun vibe to a classic short style, making it an attractive option for anyone. A fun take is also to dye the longer part a bold, bright shade to accent the length.
Updated short mullets
These styles look like the classic “business in the front, party in the back” mullet, but they’re more updated and stylish. The style has a bit of a longer look in the back that goes down to about the middle of the neck. The front is still a short style, often in an updated messy bedhead look. It’s a style that can look amazing on anyone and perfect for Pride.
