Top 10 Chelsea Haircuts That May Inspire You To Do The Same

If you want luscious hair that could match your old-school, punk, and spontaneous style, then you should check out the Chelsea Haircut.But, first and foremost, let’s talk about what this hairstyle is all about— this extraordinary cut is wherein the front part of the head is left in a long, medium, or short hair length, while the rest of the hair at the back is very short clipped or even shaved completely.

But again, it totally depends on your preferences, and you can mix up the style entirely to your liking. Women first did this style in an area in the United Kingdom called Chelsea, thus explaining its name. This haircut became a trending cut during World War II since lengthy hair, in general, was prone to accidents such as getting caught on machinery and such.

So, now that we’re acquainted with what a Chelsea haircut is, let me show you fifteen individuals ultimately owning this extraordinary hairstyle that may or may not also inspire you to do the same:
