This cute young girl rocks a gender-neutral haircut with colorful short hair, exuding confidence and individuality.

These step-by-step video tutorials include gender neutral haircuts and androgynous hairstyles for all face shapes, different hair textures, and facial features. There is something on this list for people with short, long hair and for wanting to highlight masculine and feminine elements.

1. Short ‘N Sweet Shag

It’s hard to imagine a hairstyle with more spunk and personality than a shag. Shags are a type of short-to-medium-length haircut. They have tons of choppy, uneven layers that give the look a decidedly punk vibe.

The ends are slightly feathered, which helps soften and draw attention to the disjointed layers. It also gives your hair a good deal of flow and movement.  

Shags are a great way to accentuate and highlight your natural hair texture and look great with and without curls or waves.

There are also hundreds of different takes on a shag ranging from classic and conservative to punk and edgy. The key to a good shag is getting the right cut, so here’s a video showing how this creator brought their shag to life. 

With her androgynous haircut, she embraces a classic hairstyle that transcends traditional gender norms.

2. Bowl Cut

For years, the bowl cut has had the distinct honor of being the least sought-after and most loathed haircut. But now, the bowl cut is in the spotlight for all the right reasons! It’s important to note that this isn’t your grandma’s bowl cut.

While the look still has the characteristic blunt bangs and even length, the modern bowl cut takes a much more subtle approach. It has much thinner ends and soft layers to help take the edge off the blunt shape. 

Bowl cuts are easy to maintain, although the blunt ends mean you’ll have to get regular trims. That way, your haircut will retain its shape and not become shaggy. As a bonus, a bowl cut is one of the most accessible cuts for beginners to pull off!

Just make sure you have a mirror handy to keep the back and sides even. You should also watch this short tutorial before you pull out the scissors. That way, you’ll know exactly what to expect. 

The androgynous pixie she wears beautifully complements her face shape, enhancing her prominent cheekbones.

3. Bixie Cut

Looking for something a little longer than a pixie but shorter than a bob? Look no further, because you’re about to fall in love with our next entry! If you haven’t figured it out by now, a bixie cut is a daring combination of a bob and a pixie cut.

The in-between length makes it a universally flattering cut that works well with all different facial and hair types. And since a bixie is longer than most other short haircuts, it’s versatile, low maintenance, and easy to style.

When done right, a bixie manages to give you the best of both a short and medium-length cut. Check out this informative tutorial if you want to find out more.

4. TWA

A TWA is an acronym that stands for teeny weeny afro. It’s also the next entry in our list of enby haircuts. An afro looks great at any length, but keeping it short helps you play up the androgyny.

Whether you want to grow your hair out or you’re ready for a big chop, a TWA is at the perfect in-between length. In order to qualify as a TWA, your hair will have to be less than three inches long. 

The super short length makes them virtually effortless to style and care for.

All you’ll have to do is work your favorite styling product into freshly washed hair. Rake your fingers through your curls to encourage clumping, and you’re done!

While teeny weeny afros are short, they’re long enough to show off all your gorgeous kinks, curls, and ringlets. Check out this video for more TWA styling inspiration.

5. Long Layers

No one said that enby haircuts have to be short. If you’d prefer to rock a long, flowing mane, you might want to check out this next enby haircut! A layered haircut arranges your hair into distinct layers, with the shortest one on top.

The graduated cut gives the illusion of increased length and volume. In addition to looking great, layers serve a more practical purpose. 

Layers remove the excess bulk from your mane and help improve your hair’s body, flow, and movement. They also accentuate your natural texture, which can cut down on styling time and difficulty.

The key to getting great layers is their placement, so make sure you go to a professional stylist for your cut. Then, you can learn how to style your new layers by watching this helpful YouTube video.

This young girl's gender-neutral appearance challenges societal expectations, as her thick hair reflects her personal style and gender identity.

6. Tapered Faux Hawk Afro

A tapered faux hawk is basically the more conservative and wearable version of a mohawk. It has a similar profile, with a short back and sides paired with an extended center.

However, the tapered faux-hawk has a slightly less pronounced difference in length. Instead of transitioning straight into shaved sides, it gradually gets shorter. 

As a result, a tapered faux-hawk remains highly wearable while still retaining plenty of that mohawk edge. Faux hawks look great with a variety of textures, but they’re exceptionally great with naturally kinky or curly locks.

There’s an appealing contrast between the softness of the curls and the more structured taper. Take a gander at this helpful video demonstration to find out more information.

7. Pumped Up Pompadour

The next entry on our list shows that sometimes, less is more. A pumped-up pompadour is a short, relatively simple cut. It has a similar silhouette to a mohawk, with a voluminous top and sleek sides.

But since your back and sides are slicked back rather than shaved, it looks significantly less harsh. Pompadours are exceptionally wearable and prove that haircuts can be both professional and fun.

Because the key to this look is an ample top, your hair will have to be at least six to eight inches long. Pompadours are also reasonably quick to style. All you’ll have to do is blow dry your freshly washed hair with a round brush.

Brush the top of your hair back and up so it sits away from your scalp.

Once you get the shape right, smooth some balm, gel, or pomade onto your sides to slick them down. It literally couldn’t get any easier. Watch this tutorial to see how you can make your pumped-up pompadour look absolutely perfect.

The androgynous style she rocks combines elements of traditionally feminine and masculine haircuts, creating a unique and captivating look.

8. Low-Tapered Fade

Although fades are best known as a men’s haircut, this charming cut is done in a way that prevents it from looking too harsh and masculine. Taper fades, like this one, are a type of short haircut that gradually gets shorter as you move down toward your nape and neck.

Low tapered fades start at the ears, which creates a subtle spotlight effect that puts all the emphasis on your stunning face. It also makes your cheekbones and jaw look more prominent, so it’s great for anyone who wants to give their features more structure.

Another great thing about a low-tapered skin fade is that it almost always looks sleek and tidy. This is because the style brings the sides and back of your hair inwards, so you don’t have to worry about frizz and flyaways.

9. Mixie

A mixie is yet another short, sweet, and ultra-chic fusion haircut that combines elements of a mullet and pixie cut. Mixies are a little longer than a standard pixie, but they retain loads of volume and punk rock texture.

They also have the characteristic mullet shape, with a shorter front and long, choppy back. The unique shape gives the look a retro 60s vibe, while the length and texture bring it into the twenty-first century.

Another great thing about mixies is that they’re pretty easy to style. Simply work a bit of texturizing balm into the various layers, and use your fingers to lift and define them. 

And that’s it! Because the cut does the heavy lifting, it’ll look like you spent hours getting your hairdo just right. Unsure whether the mixie cut is right for you?

10. Androgynous Wolf Cut

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past five years, you’ve probably heard of the wolf cut. A wolf cut is halfway between a shag and a mullet and contains lots of face-framing layers and edgy texture.

They keep the bulk of the volume towards the top of your head by creating short wispy layers. Then, the cut transitions into longer, choppier layers as you move down the sides and back. 

Wolf cuts look amazing on all hair lengths, but if you’re looking for a more androgynous cut, you should keep things on the shorter side.

Despite being relatively simple, wolf cuts seamlessly blend the wild and chaotic with the soft and romantic. Wolf cuts are all about achieving the perfect shape, so here’s a video tutorial to give you a little more information on this incredible hairstyle.

The sharp, asymmetrical angle gives this look a more masculine edge.

It also helps draw attention to your jaw and cheekbones, which can slim down rounder facial shapes. The cut also does the vast majority of the work, so your hair will be quick and easy to style. 

Unfortunately, it’s not all good news. This cut contains uneven lengths that can limit your styling options. That means this look is slightly less wearable than some of the other entries on this list. But don’t worry.

12. Side-Swept Undercut

A good nonbinary haircut bridges the gap between feminine and masculine styles. While there are many ways to do this, one of the best is to combine hard and soft elements in one look.

And that’s precisely where this stunner comes in. A side-swept undercut combines the structure and rigidity of a shaved head with the soft flexibility of a longer top.

But if you’re looking for an enby friendly haircut, it’s hard to think of anything more iconic. And don’t worry if you still want your hair to have plenty of pizazz.

They’re long and shaggy, so you won’t have to trim them out often. You also won’t have to go through any awkward phases when you decide to grow them out.
