The undercut is a hairstyle that crosses gender, race and social status. Although it was first seen during WWI it didn’t become famous until the 1930’s, in the WWII military. The early undercut was also known as the SS haircut due to its popularity in the German Nazi military. In fact, the undercut became the preferred haircut for 30 years, 1930’s – 1960’s, among military personnel. From the 1970’s to 2010, the hairstyle was mostly seen on kids due to its simplicity.
