Problems Only Girls With Undercuts Will Understand

An undercut is the perfect way to add a touch of "playful rebel" to your everyday hair, and it's pretty easy to do! Just take the under section of your hair -- either above or below the ears -- and cut it razor-short while the rest is left long. You can maintain the haircut yourself at home using a hair trimmer and maybe the assistance of a trusted friend with a steady hand.

But like any haircut, it comes with its own set of struggles.

1. The initial first shave.

It is hard enough trying out a new hairstyle; shaving off your hair takes it to a whole new level. Never fear: although it is totally scary at first, this bold style makes a statement and will not let you down!

2. Those fuzzy little neck hairs.

I bet the one thing you did not consider when getting an undercut was how often you would have to trim it; any neglect whatsoever and those little hairs on your neck will stick out everywhere.

3. Expensive designs that grow out in two weeks.

Designs are great and really make a unique statement, but is it worth $20 to 30 for only a week of looking fly? Yes and no. There is always a price to pay for beauty.

4. Forgetting you have one.

And your dear grandmother grabs her heart to exclaim, "What has happened to your head?"

5. Catching your long hairs in the trimmer.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F05%2F635902361914616103-324348645_giphy%2520%283%29.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=412&h=b96fc70c0144d23252abbe7521cf2a4900a30bc43dc7191ff67c53b2a56583e5&size=980x&c=1442768294 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F05%252F635902361914616103-324348645_giphy%252520%25283%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D412%26h%3Db96fc70c0144d23252abbe7521cf2a4900a30bc43dc7191ff67c53b2a56583e5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1442768294%22%7D" expand=1]

This happens to the best of us, you get some of your longer hair caught in the blade. Now you must weigh the option of either expanding your undercut another inch or simply chopping all your hair off. We feel the pain; you are not in this alone.

6. Only feeling like you can wear your hair down.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F05%2F635902999097856435-1076576287_giphy%2520%285%29.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=269&h=0ec09ad2e4a3e82b2ad0f0206469c9d61756e00afcb01e64ee3383d44736738b&size=980x&c=1634663927 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F05%252F635902999097856435-1076576287_giphy%252520%25285%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D269%26h%3D0ec09ad2e4a3e82b2ad0f0206469c9d61756e00afcb01e64ee3383d44736738b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1634663927%22%7D" expand=1]

An undercut puts you in the upper echelon of hairstyles, and it's hard looking so fresh all the time. Some days you can't handle the pressure, which means hair down and beanies on. But don't shy away if you can. Wear that hair up in a messy bun loud and proud!

7. The grow out phase.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F05%2F635902362630620668-535023132_giphy%2520%282%29.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=650&h=89233e243be98722a45e486bc2f419c659dd2a073a7ffb9b6f359e20f5927093&size=980x&c=2792216509 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F05%252F635902362630620668-535023132_giphy%252520%25282%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D650%26h%3D89233e243be98722a45e486bc2f419c659dd2a073a7ffb9b6f359e20f5927093%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2792216509%22%7D" expand=1]

All good things must come to an end. There will come a time when you decide the undercut isn't for you, and it's time to move on. At this point you just have to own it -- because truth be told, it may be that no one quite knows how to gracefully grow out an undercut.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

7260
Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.
