A bowl cut, also known as a pot haircut, or a mushroom cut. This cut features longer hair around the top of the head and shorter hair around the lower part of the head with little or no blending between the two lengths , the bowl look can be cut in various lengths to suit your face shape, you can use the hair wax to style it very easily.

This haircut was popular among common people of various nationalities as an easy and relatively neat cut by a non-professional and during the Depression Era, it is a common haircut because it was created by placing a bowl over the head and cutting off the hair that came out below the bow that gives very neat look.

From the late twentieth century on, the haircut resurfaced as a counterculture style credited to the Beatles’hairstyles and the Ramones’ early stylized bowl cuts. The bowl cut gained popularity in America among teenaged and pre-teen boys in the 1980s and the hairstyle was a veritable fad in some American locales. The popularity of the bowl cut faded in the early/mid-1990s but it is starting to become popular again especially in Asia popularized by Korean boy groups – I love how they have given it a modern feel to the classic style.

Here are some great examples and variations of the bowl on an Asian face that you could consider when discussing with your hairstylist if you want to get a bowl cut. (Tip: Go for a slightly asymmetrical fringe if you worry you might not be able to carry off a straight bangs)
