The 2024 DIY style of the year is the at-home buzz cut

The 2024 DIY style of the year is the at-home buzz cut

How did we decide that the DIY buzz cut is one of Resort ’24’s surprisingly biggest trends? We took a look at the season of simplicity and into the next, another season so, and decided that there was a radicality in things that were presented as they were. Straightforward in their ease of being, unostentatiousness that highlights a quiet confidence instead, and fashioned for action and activity.

But by no means will these trends guarantee one a sufficient amount of style that can only come from mining self-exploration and cultivating charisma but what are we certain of? That the DIY buzz cut is safe for any kind of hair, it balances thinning out by sharpening focus up top or preventing mushrooming on men who are hirsute up north.

The final clincher: all you need are #2, #1 and #7 blades, a dozen clips, and the dexterity skills of a teenager (one will get an abrupt fade) or a commercial pilot (the holy grail gradual one).

Continue scrolling down for five of our grails to maintain the style.
