Hair Dictionary – U
Undercoat is the underlying pigment in hair, and this is one of the most important factors to keep in mind when choosing a colour. The undercoat colour will affect the end result, and the colourist must formulate the shade correctly.
Undercut - A unisex haircut whereby the top section of hair is held in place whilst a section underneath is cut short, thus making the top longer and creating a hang over of hair. It was popular in the 90s, and has had a resurgence of popularity recently. Reference: Rihanna.
