Today many women choose to have layers in their hair instead of a cut that is all one length. A shag hair cut looks more modern and sharp, while it is also easy to style. A modern shag has varied layers and different finishes at the bottom.
Every type of hair and every hair length has an ideal shag that suits it. When you choose a hairstyle, take into account your lifestyle and your facial shape.
Shoulder length shag hairdos look good with multiple layers. You can make your shag look fun and sassy by adding waves with a large curling iron. If you have dark hair, adding some highlights will make it brighter. Add a bit of fun color to finalize the look and make your face look brighter.
This modern shag haircut has definite layers with jagged end pieces and subtle downlights and highlights to upgrade the look. The tresses in front are flipped up to accentuate the oval shape of the face and the hair in back is flipped out in a playful manner.
A hairstyle with high layers at the top and thinned down ends might be too much like Carol Brady. However, a skilled professional stylist can remove excess volume from heavy hair or make thin hair look more lively. It is best to have this done at a salon. If you want to avoid looking like someone from the 1970s, do not try this look at home.
