Layered Haircuts; The Shag

Short Layered Haircuts

Shag Layered Haircuts are Back From the Past

Layered haircuts are one of the most commonly requested haircuts that I get. Everyone wants a layered haircut, whether they are long layers, short layers, or somewhere in between. What I’m suggesting a lot right now is an updated version of the layered shag. Remember the shag layered haircuts from the 70’s and 80’s?  Well they are back again in a big way!.

Short Layered Haircuts
Taylor Momsen and Kristen Stewart, are just two celebrities to jump on the layered haircut bandwagon. Their layered haircuts are a bit more on the extreme versions of this layered hairstyle. I prefer something that you can wear every day, so here are some layered haircuts that are great for everyday wear:

Meg Ryan, first made the short layered haircut famous and Lisa Rinna has now perfected it. Their layered haircuts are perfect examples of what I’m talking about. A shag layered hairstyle is great for someone who wants a lot of body, movement and texture in their short hair. If you want to steal this hairstyle, I would suggest asking your hairdresser for super short layers blended into the length of your hair.  Also, this is such an easy haircut to style in the morning, you’ll be able to get out of the house in a flash! Blow dry all over, no need to use a brush and then add some texturizing product like Bed Head Manipulator, into the hair and style. I love these short layered haircuts since they are so easy to style and so stylish to wear!

Medium Layered Haircut

Incorporating this shag hairstyle, are great for those in the process of growing out their hair. It will give you a fabulous new look while your hair is ‘in-between’ hairstyles. For a medium layered shag, you can get away with longer layers. Have your hairdresser cut in all over layers and then go back and do loads of texturizing throughout for that shaggy look.

Long Layered Haircut on Ashlee Olsen

Long Layered Haircut

I love, love, love this look!  This is a great way to add a lot of volume and body to long, lifeless locks. If you love this long layered haircut too, ask your hairdresser for a lot of choppy layers throughout your long hair. You can style this by flipping hair in and out with a flat iron or large barrel curling iron and then spraying a dry wax spray throughout layered pieces. I like Paul Mitchell’s Dry Wax, because it doesn’t seem to leave too much of a build up on strands.

These long layered haircuts are so hot right now, I think I may just have to copy Ashlee Olsen’s hairstyle and claim it as my own. Remember that we are all about change and switching up your hairstyle this season, so why not try one of these shag-alicious styles.

  6. This amorous model brings new adventure with her warm light brown hair that has been displayed in long layers and fashioned into a smooth look. Heavy fringes have been developed into a point composing a peninsula on her forehead. While blow drying is imperative for this long hairstyle, you can use styling gel.
