What is an asymmetrical haircut? We aren’t talking about math when we describe a haircut as asymmetrical. We just mean that one side of your hair is longer than the other. An awesome thing about asymmetrical haircuts is that they’re for both long and short hair, and they work for all face shapes, even for full or somewhat disproportionate faces. They’re also great for adding an instant spark to your style.
