Geo haircuts create timeless styles with precise edges and defined angles. It is quite easy to style and maintain this edgy style. Our model line-up demonstrates several of the many geo hairstyles, and we show you exactly how to create them

  • The "geo" in geo haircuts stands for geometric shapes and angles as they are defined for triangles, rectangles, circles or diamonds. Geo haircuts are all about precision and simplicity of shape.

    Among the geo hairstyles are the bob, mop top, hairstyles with straight fringes, and the mock bob providing these hairstyles are cut with absolute precision and combed straight. Loose strands, soft steps, fringes or waves have no place in geo hairstyles. Cool, precision-cut, and perfectly styled geo haircuts and the soft tousled undone look are worlds apart. They are at opposite ends of hairstyle fashions, yet both styles remain popular. The two looks have only one common characteristic: They are both timeless hairstyle favourites.

  • Geo Haircuts: The Hair Colour

    Geo haircuts look best with an entirely uniform hair colour. Unusual hair colours like yellow, pink or blue are perfect with geo haircuts. However, natural hair colours like black, brown, and blonde also enhance the geo style. If you don't like to go all out on a limb but also don't want to be a timid mouse you may want to choose one of the many shades of red from copper to aubergine red.

  • Geo Haircuts: The Styling

    Styling geo haircuts is particularly easy for women with naturally straight hair. Otherwise, a flat iron or straightening blow dryer kit will keep your hair straight.

    Geo hairstyles can be styled with glossy or matte finish. You may like to take advantage of the exceptional light-reflection from straight (dark) hair.
    The best styling aids for geo haircuts are hair wax (to keep fly-away hair in check) and hairspray (to keep every hair in place).

    Please enjoy the geo hairstyles in our gallery. Our models demonstrate several geo styles.
