Eva G. and the undercut at the back

Three months ago I read an article on style.com and got really enthusiastic ( http://www.style.com/beauty/beautycounter/2011/09/talking-undercuts-with-freja-beha-erichsensupermodel-activist/ ). Freja Beha Erichsen was showing everyone her new undercut done by Sam McKnight. I hadn’t come across this certain undercut since the mid-1990’s. Marina Stat had the best one in school because she shaved the hair off with a razor. So, when Eva G. suggested I give her a haircut backstage at a photo shoot (she is a stylist) and started saying how she wanted me to shave off her hair on the side (or maybe both sides), I insisted that she read this article first. The thing with the undercut on the side is that your options of styling your hair while growing it back are going to be much more limited compared to the undercut at the back (plus it was really big during the previous decade). I convinced her and shaved off some hair at the back, added long layers and a long rounded fringe at the front and then put her long hair up in a “DIY” bun. We were both satisfied with the finished result.
