Shag Revival: Cutting and Styling the Season's Hottest Shape
“Splicing is a technique that’s amazing on curl, wave and straight hair as you use shears to create texture and layers at the same time,” says Shannon King, academy trainer for Keune Haircosmetics and co-owner of Hair & Co BKLN, about creating a shag like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna. For angles, King says layers created in the middle of the shape are what make this look iconic.
“Experiment with razors, shears and clippers to blend and create new textures in this hair cut.”
To finish the look, King recommends Keune’s Blend Sea Salt Spray.
If 2016 was the year of the lob, this year spotlights the modern-day shag. Embrace layers, a head-hugging shape and respect the length in the nape for this hip yet retro cool-girl style.
