Shag Haircuts for Women
Hairstyles / Short / Medium / Long / Shag
Modern fashion trends, just like anything nowadays, tend to shift greatly from the glorious past of sleek, perfect haircuts with not a single hair straying or sticking out in a wrong direction. Today, shaggy layers with their chaotic but infinitely appealing tangles share the spotlight with disheveled, seemingly un-combed, deliberately messy hairstyles. Shags look decidedly wonderful on the tresses of any length, color, and texture.
Short Shag Haircuts
While the disheveled look is now considered especially classy, shags present an entirely different matter. What is a shag haircut exactly? It’s a combination of different lengths and multiple layers styled in a way to underline the natural chic and femininity of both short and long tresses.
Shorter versions of this particular hairstyle have already been known in the 1990s, when women with finer and flatter locks tried their best to enrich their looks with a sassy bounce and a peculiar but attractive shape. Half-extreme and very short layered shaggy hairstyles proved perfect for those eager to add volume and a bit of luxurious touch. These haircuts look equally beautiful and cute both on straight, slightly wavy, and curly strands. Pick up an image of your dream cut and bring it to your hairdresser to get the most desired styling.
Long Shag Haircuts
Longer hair is traditionally associated with younger age because during woman’s early years of life, maintaining lengthy tresses together with a stylish flamboyant cut is much easier than later on, when the years advance to make practicality and short lengths definite favorites. A long shag haircut with bangs provides an exemplary image of a young woman’s styling. This hairdo possesses the entire glory of beautiful and healthy strands while at the same time, it challenges the more traditional shapes and lines by disheveling half of the tresses into a seemingly unruly mess. 70s shag hairstyles are still associated with that particular wilderness coming upon the wings of retro movies and TV shows. During that period, the shag first appeared as a celebrity’s style, rich and abundant in its multiple layers and general messiness.
While long shags may be still viewed as a nice choppy version of a regular lengthy bob for girls, this does not necessarily mean that only shorter versions are suitable for older women. As it goes, the attractiveness of the image depends almost entirely on the definite shape and styling you are going to have. Thin hair, for instance, is not a disadvantage here: layered hairdos with rounded edges provide all the necessary volume and thickness. If you are eager to remain trendy and fabulous, just follow your heart’s desire along with your stylist’s advice.
Medium Length Shag Haircuts
While most professionals generally recommend short shag hairstyles for women over 50 and young girls, medium length is considered preferential for women in their 20s and 30s. These shag versions emphasize inner femininity while simultaneously adding a touch of wildness, recalcitrance, and mischief. Mid-length tresses can also be cut into shaggy bobs (A-line or classic ones) to remain in fashion for the foreseeable future. The shaggy attitude provides an appealing contradiction between finesse and rebelliousness, sleek lines and charming unruliness. If you remain at a loss whether to leave your locks as they are or to upgrade them into a whole new image, it might prove useful to flip through various pictures of medium shag haircuts and reconsider the very nature of your habitual bob. Perhaps, the time has come to renovate your style according to the most widespread and popular tendency.
