Who knew, undercuts look even better with a little bling, cereal, balloons, pearls and barbie shoes? (Instagram)

Punk-tastic hairstyle, the undercut, is one of the trendiest hairstyles of 2016. The 2013-14 cut had swept celebville with fashion-forward singers like Rihanna (below), Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus and actresses like Jada Pinkett Smith and Natalie Dormer giving it a go.

Cut to 2016 and the undercut for women is back.

For those not in the know: An undercut is when the sides and back sections of your head are buzzed or cut short. Undercut, right?

There are also about one million different takes on this style and there is no right or wrong way!

With all that buzz around ‘partially shaved heads’ and a little Instagram digging, we discovered a whole world of creative undercut decorations.

So, move over the ‘been-there-seen-those’ undercuts, there’s a new LWU (lady with undercut) on Instagram.

Meet Annelies Hofmeyr: She is eccentric (if not down-right crazy) and her hair is a bit too innovative for this world.

Her claim to fame?

Proving that undercuts look even better with a little bling, cereal, balloons, pearls and barbie shoes! She also shows that you don’t have to be a supermodel or rockstar to rock an undercut.

The South Africa-born, Canadian artist posts not just eye-catching and edgy but glamorous Instagrams of her decorated undercut to collect all of our <3 emojis.

If you want to become the queen of hair cool or make a real statement, you should not miss these pictures.

Warning: You might be tempted to grab some clippers after seeing these. (It’s pretty much the bravest thing you’ll do, but would you really?)
