The undercut (or half-hawk, made popular by stars like Skrillex, among others) is a style that can be casual and punk, or in this case, glammed up and wedding-friendly. Earlier this week we featured a wedding with just such a style with short, platinum curls that totally fulfilled all our blinged-out, fairy princess wedding dreams all while being totally chic and edgy. You too can have this combination! Feast your eyes on the inspiration.

I'm cheating since this is actually a full mohawk. But Jill Scott knows how to sculpt her loc hair to complement the style.

This mini undercut could have been easily blended into a more traditional style, but why would she when it looks so amazing in an updo showing it off? Plus, it kind of reminds me of this DIY style.

Be still our retro-loving hearts! This two-tone glamour-puss look is the bomb, as in shell.
