How to avoid Karen haircut

Well, it’s totally up to you what you want to do to your hairs. I don’t criticize any hairstyle termed as Karen.

Each haircut is beautiful in its way. However, if you wish to avoid a Karen haircut then keep reading.

  • Avoid strong Color

One of the essential features of a Karen haircut is strong color highlights. Originally, it was highlighted with a blonde. Now the woman is using different strong colors.

But this can spoil your overall look as not many complexions can complement this style.

  • Ribbon curls

Curls look beautiful, but you should never curl your hair too much. By too much, I mean to the extent that it coils in too spiral. This doesn’t look flattering at all.

  • Too much Volume is a no

Bouncy, Voluminous is the dream of many. However, trust me, too much volume is the worst. Karen haircut has an over-teased crown that makes it look like you are wearing a hat on the crown.

  • Retro hairstyle

Old is gold but avoids any Retro haircuts. Any old-fashioned haircut has all those features of a Karen haircut.

  • No to choppy layers

Layers are beautiful, but choppy and obvious layers look awkward. Always opt for subtle and blended layers.

Final Words

Well, don’t believe in any prejudices. I am not saying every woman having such a hairstyle is a Karen. Karen is just a term given to outspoken, rude Middle-aged English Women.

Why everyone tells you to avoid Karen hairstyle is simply because it doesn’t look good. However, if want to try any hairstyle say an inverted bob then go for it. You should decide what you want not others.

Moreover, it is a derogative term and therefore you should not use it anyhow.
