Let’s play a riddle, shall we? I am something, I double as a vegetable and a hairstyle. What am I? You guessed right. It’s broccoli. But today, we won’t be talking about it as a vegetable. (We’re not even a food blog to start with). We’ll be looking at the broccoli haircut.

In this piece, I’ll show you all you need to know about this haircut, including some style inspiration for your next look.

What’s the Broccoli Haircut About?

Otherwise known as bird’s nest or zoomer perm, this haircut is for men and women with wavy, spiky, or curly hair. It involves rocking the curls but shaving the sides of your hair into a fade while the top is long and messy, hence the name broccoli

Furthermore, the hair is usually shorter at the back while the front is long enough to reach over your eyebrows. This makes it perfect for making a fashion statement.

You may think broccoli is for only those with curly hair. That’s not true. You don’t have to have naturally curly hair to achieve this look. You can transform your hair into curls or rock a straight, spiky broccoli haircut.

How to Achieve Broccoli Haircut

To get this look, you’ll have to cut your hair short in the back and sides. After getting the fades, let the top of your hair be longer than the back. And once you’ve cut your hair, use a pomade or hair wax to style it into a quiff as big or small as you like, depending on your taste.

Spiky Broccoli Haircut

Having straight hair doesn’t mean you can’t rock the Broccoli cut. In fact, straight hair gives you room to make the ends of your hair sharp and spiky.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or sketching fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
