The “skivvy”

is a term coined by meappropriatestyle as description for

a to the scalp trimmed hairstyle worn by a

fashion forward / fashion fearless woman.

An equivalent label in the male hairstyling world,

is a buzz cut.



Why the introduction of “skivvy”

into the meappropriatestyle fashion / style lexicon?



I nicknamed my own once ‘to the scalp’ do as skivvy:

to mean styled cut to the skin (the look)  /  sassy (the attitude).

I liked the resonant quality of the word:  sounds good to my ear.

I enjoyed having an original / fun  naming of my do.
