An asymmetric cut is a haircut in which the hair is cut in such a way that the hair does not have left-right symmetry and one side is cut or appears to be longer than the other.
Talk show host Rosie O'Donnell famously adopted a short version of the asymmetric cut in 2002 after she came out of the closet. Other celebrities who have sported asymmetric hairstyles include singers Cyndi Lauper, Rihanna, Reece Mastin, Jordan McCoy and Phil Oakey and Davey Havok of AFI. Reality television star Kate Gosselin became well known for her asymmetrical cut, which she has since changed.
