You don’t have to be a rockstar to rock the shag haircut for long hair. The shaggy hairstyle is defined by lots of layers, volume, and body and it’s shorter around the front and longer around the back. This hairstyle is great for women with fine hair because it adds volume and vibrancy and it’s also great for women with curly textured hair because the layers give the hair a thinner and more controllable texture. The shag has been updated from the days of Joan Jet and the modern shag is one of the hottest hairstyles right now. Shaggy haircuts are usually medium length but there are amazing longer shag hairstyles for women.
Long Wavy Shag Hair with Long Blunt Bangs
A long wavy shag is a great way to give your hair a manageable layered haircut that’s simple to create with lots of wavy texture. A layered wispy blunt bang compliments the choppy hair of shag hairstyles and you can sweep them to the side for a face-framing effect.
Straight Shaggy Hairstyle with Straight Bangs
Waves a great option but some of us prefer the straighter texture or our natural hair texture is stick straight and we’re considering shag for the additional texture it gives your hair. Long straight and shaggy is a simple way to spice up your hairstyle. The blunt bangs that are longer on the side of the eye pulls together the entire look effortlessly but of course if you don’t have the face shape for blunt bangs then skip them and opt for a side-parted shag.
Shag Haircut with Short Side-Swept Bangs
Side-swept bangs look like an additional layer to your shag hairstyle, which creates an effortless flow with your hairstyle. A choppy shag look with a shorter side-swept layered bang that flows over the eyebrow is ultra-chic.
Long Subtle Shag
The amount of choppy layers is up to you. If you don’t want to worry about growing out a lot of layers then more subtle shag is perfect. This way you still get the benefits of the shag chop but don’t have to worry it’s too much. A simple long shag hairstyle with an off-center part is gorgeous.
Long Curly Shaggy Hair with No Bangs
A lot of shag hairstyles have bangs because they complete the look but not everyone wants the maintenance of bangs or the face shape doesn’t really mesh well with bangs. If that’s your case then no fear, a long shag hairstyle with a curly or wavy texture is rock n’ roll, glamorous, and classic.
