Amazing volume

Short shaggy styles are leaving their mark on all types of short cuts from the spiky, layered pixie, through the futuristic choppy bob to the razor-cut shaggy hairstyles that create amazing volume in hair without being girly-curly!

Cut to fit

Round faces look far less full when framed by an uneven, angled shaggy hairstyle that minimises the curves. And a short shaggy haircut with those trademark flicked out sides will create the cheekbone width that long faces need to correct the shape. Naturally curly hair looks instantly contemporary-casual if you add a few shaggy layers at the front.

Fine hair

If you have straight, fine hair this is a great style to choose! The problem with fine textured hair is always to get more volume and avoid that plastered to the head look. With plenty of layers and a short shaggy hairstyle, you’ll find that you can get a funky, ‘big’ silhouette just by adding some styling product and rough-drying your hair.

And on fine hair, textured tips will give a fluffy kitten look that is just adorable.

Coarse hair

Thick, coarse hair is easier to control when shaped and thinned to create a flattering shag and the best news is you don’t need to spend hours doing your hair with heat tools, which are so damaging to the condition of longer hair!

In a shaggy cut, coarse thick hair looks really edgy with heavily textured tips creating a burst of sharp tips around the head. Or if you’re transitioning from chemically straightened hair to ‘natural’ hair, a razored short shaggy hairstyle will put you in the fashion forefront instantly!

Fresh look

If you’re not sure about having a super-cool short shag, ask your stylist for advice about the best shape for your hair texture and face.   And you can start with a few choppy layers at the sides, or a shaggy fringe first to see how fresh and contemporary a totally trendy shag will look.
