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.

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.

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.

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.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

1968

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
