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.
