One of the main reasons ladies are loving the shag haircut is because this edgy style gives you so many choices to go with. First, let us clue you in on what the shag haircut is. This flawless look includes a lot of all-over layers, choppy ends, and tons of texture—very rock n’ roll. What could be better?! The great thing is it’s extremely casual and yet looks stunning. Plus, it doesn’t take a long time to style. The shag haircut comes with a numerous amount of cuts you go with to accentuate those beautiful eyes and your face shape. If you went with the long in front shag, you get a cut just how it sounds – leave the front longer and get the back cut shorter. It will frame your face, while showing off the length and layers at the same time. Just in case you weren’t aware, shag hairstyles are basically bobs, just with a lot of choppier ends and lots of added layers. So, if you’re rocking that gorgeous lengthy hair or a bob, add some more layers, add some hairspray, scrunch and loosen it, and you’ll see that gorgeous shag. If you’re currently strutting a mid-length shag, doesn’t matter if straight, wavy, or curled, it will always look amazing thanks to the choppy layers flowing around. Whether you wear it messy or polished, you’re bound to get noticed as soon as you walk out of the door!

Styling the shag is half of the fun! There are so many things you can do and add to bring the look full circle and turn heads as you hit the town with your ladies. If you’ve been parting your hair to the left or right, you can try parting it to the middle. The middle part has definitely made a comeback in 2017 and 2018, and we’re loving how sophisticated it makes the shag look! Especially when you pair it with some wavy locks, you’ll get nothing but perfection. To take the shag to another level, you can get some bangs. You’ll add some extra sass to your look and give your hair more volume. You can’t go wrong! You can always go with some highlights sparingly throughout your hair, or a ton of highlights if you prefer, to show off each strand through the layers and texture! If you’ve wanted to try the ombre or balayage style, it will look nothing but gorgeous with your shag. On the other hand, if you’d like to keep your hair just as is, spruce it up by adding some waves with a straightener for a beautiful, simple look that doesn’t try too hard. When you’re feeling more of a curly look, grab that curling iron and create some of those loose or coiled curls. You’ll see that volume you’ve been wanting as those around you take notice of each bounce as you walk!
