The New Shag Style by Mallory Cook
This is not Kelso’s shag from the 70’s. This is a modern take of a cut that’s finally turning the table on the so sought after blunt cut lob we’ve been looking at the past few years. This new shag style is great for any hair density, thin to thick, this style adds volume, texture, move-ability, and even is a frizz reducing style for my curly girls and guys! For anyone looking to go from a short to long style, the new shag helps reduce extra fullness as your hair grow out.
Styling the new shag is fun and can be very versatile. For added texture created from a blow dry style, use Pureology Style & Protect Beach Waves Sugar Spray, try taking the air concentrator off of your blow dryer and use your fingers to dry to give a natural, soft finish. For curls, try the Pureology Curl Complete Uplifting Curl spray in pretty damp hair, twist curls, scrunch and air dry for a nice beachy feel, diffuse with your hair dryer for a style with extra volume. Finish any of these styles with Pureology Style & Protect Shine Bright Taming Serum to add some polished definition.
To accentuate and modernize the new shag even further, try some balayage highlights, or a dimensional full look of some fun colors. The one unchanged inspiration from this 70s style may be that sapphire blue shag carpet you remember from your grandmas basement. With a deep root color, and this shiny blue sapphire through the lengths, you’ve got a stunning ‘do for 2019!
