25 Shag Haircuts To Inspire Your Next Hair Appointment
Curly With Balayage
A shag is a great way to embrace your natural curl and give your hair a break from all those hot tools that can cause breakage and damage. This shoulder-length curly shag with long bangs and balayage will add depth while also looking soft and healthy.
The Goldie
This is a long, sexy shag with a full bang and lots of movement and layers around the face. Stylist and shag expert Rachel Williams coined the Goldie shag after the iconic Goldie Hawn, stating that the cut “really accentuates the woman's face."
Long, Strawberry Blond
The long shag features loose layers around the face and a gorgeous, shaggy bang. Adding a strawberry blond color treatment to your cut is the perfect accent for this gorgeous and long romantic style.
All-Over Short
Wes Sharpton, who created this look, explained to Allure how bangs can really differ with each shag cut. "The bangs bring attention to the eyes and the areas around the face frame to create a contour-like-effect which highlights the cheekbone," Sharpton explains.
Pop of Color
The shag tends to be popular with longer hair because it allows you to take a lot of the weight out while still maintaining body and fullness. This long shag features a heavier, blunt bang and adds just a pop of color with caramel highlights peeking through the black hair color.
