Don't let the name fool you, this haircut is about to be everyone's obsession this spring and summer. 

While it may sound more like a medical term than a trendy hairstyle, the 'clavicut' is a flattering and simple hairstyle to easily elevate any look this season.

What is the clavicut?

Wish you had short hair but don't want to commit to a bob-cut? The clavicut is the perfect happy medium. It's a collarbone-length hairstyle that's short enough to pass as a long-bob (or "lob") but still long enough to pull back into a ponytail.

This isn't the first time this hairdo has appeared. In fact, it's constantly coming back in style for its easy care and flattering appearance. Just pair this style with the best hair dryer and best shampoo and conditioner for gorgeous locks no matter what season. Last year, Health even spoke with hairstylist Edward Tricomi of Warren Tricomi Salons, who described the style in more detail.

"The clavicut is a blunt haircut at the collarbone, straight around—not shorter in the back or longer—it is the same length all over,” Edward explained. “Basically, the hair kisses the top of the collarbone (also known as the clavicle, thus the name ‘clavicut'). It is becoming popular because it is an elegant line—it is clean and simple. That simplicity, that's what makes it beautiful. It can also be edgy and sophisticated all at the same time."

If you're looking for a versatile look, then this is definitely the look for you. 

"You can wear it blunt, straight, and clean, which requires little product,” he added. “You can also take a curling iron and wave it for a more beach boho-chic vibe. For a more drastic, edgy look, you can make a deep side part or a blunt middle part, too."

If you're worried it won't work with your face shape, Edward added that it could work on almost anyone.

"It really can go with a lot of different faces,” he said. “Almost all face shapes are the perfect candidate for this hairstyle."

So, if you're ready for a change, then give this hairstyle a whirl at your next hair appointment.
