Style Focus: the Shag Cut Hairstyle

We’ve seen shag cut hairstyle back hitting the streets of London and Berlin and we love it! The voluminous, layered hairstyle from the 70s has returned in all its glorious forms. It is a haircut back then made famous by many stars of the era from heavy metal and glam rock heroes to Hollywood celebrities.

This vintage hairstyle can easily be toned down from its too crazy form, keeping the typical choppy ends and given a modern twist. Some great results can also be achieved when combining it with a mullet at the back and adding some 80s cool.

It still remains a great way to add texture and volume to any haircut from short to long. The shag hairstyle can work brilliantly with layers of colour to add depth. In our opinion it goes with lots of face shapes and delivers a sexy, edgy result.
