Apart from the fact that they look good on literally anyone, buzz cuts have another advantage to them. They are extremely easy to maintain. The traditional buzz cuts used to be done with clippers, and they meant almost shaving all of your hair off for comfort and a rugged style. However, since they entered in the attention of Hollywood hunks, buzz cuts received an upgrade.
