This is a perfect look if you’re heading to the theater straight from work. While most will be wearing black, a beret in red will be an unexpected pop of color and give straight hair new life.

If you’re more on the conservative side, give your faux hawk a little edge for the night by doing criss-cross braids on the sides and adding a small row of hoops to one of the braids.

This tapered cut is taken to the next level by cutting in two lines down the side. This is also a low commitment look. Cut in the lines for the movie and within two weeks they will have filled in.
