A buzz haircut, also known as a buzz cut, refers to any type of short hairstyle that is designed using electric hair clippers. A buzz cut can help hide the early signs of hair loss. Additionally, it is a fairly low-maintenance hairstyle that works in both casual and formal environments.
Whether a person cuts his own hair or not, there are multiple buzz cut styles he can employ, including the mohawk style, the undercut, the flattop and the crew cut. The buzz cut can be created by using electric clippers to cut the hair down to a uniform short length and then shaping the top into a specific geometric shape, which determines the substyle of the buzz cut.
