Celebrities Are Proving That the Shag Haircut Is Back, and It's Cooler Than Ever
The shag haircut isn't exactly new. The choppy, layered hair look — typically styled with tons of texture — was popularised back in the 1970s, but it has made a comeback this Summer on our favourite celebrities.
What you're seeing on stars like Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, and Sarah Hyland isn't what you'd see decades ago. Hairstylist Devin Toth told POPSUGAR that updated versions of the shag would be the coolest haircut trend of the year. "The two popular shag styles will be ultra curly, ultra layered, and then straight with long curtain bangs that sweep," he said. "The curly shag is very round with a pure release of texture. It will be a seamless transition from bangs to short layers to long layers to bottom length. The straight shag can be styled however you want, but it generally has longer layers with the focus of the style being the bold curtain bangs — sweeping but not fully connected to the rest of the style."
