9 Shag Haircuts That Look Great on Everyone
Long or short, this multi-layered hairstyles is the epitome of low-maintenance. Whether you choose to wear your shag polished or effortlessly messy, these celebs are here to give you some major hair inspiration.
1. Long and Straight
Shags don't have to be short, and Halle Berry's gorgeous look is proof. Add more dimension by mixing in subtle highlights and wispy bangs.
2. Platinum Lob
Jennifer Lawrence's low-maintenance cut meets a high-maintenance dye job. It's all about balance, right? The platinum shade offers up serious old Hollywood vibes.
3. Retro Rocker
Chloe Grace Moretz's shag is reminiscent of the hairstyles seen on male rockstars in the '70s, but it obviously looks amazing on women, too.
Shags look incredible at any length, allowing you to grow your hair long without needing to go back to the salon month after month. Just take Dakota Johnson, who rocks layers from chin- to chest-length.
5. Curls with Bangs
As great as a shag looks on straight hair, it looks even more awesome with curls. Go bold and try it with bangs for a flattering, face-framing effect.
6. Short with Side-Swept Bangs
Anne Hathaway's playful style has all the edginess of a short cut but with the comfort of longer layers. The contrast between side-swept bangs and a longer back is what makes this cut so cute.
8. Loose Curls
Meg Ryan made the short, wavy shag famous in the '90s, and her shoulder-grazing version today looks just as adorable. If your hair isn't naturally wavy, turn your straight shag into a beachy one with a curling wand.
9. Messy Mid-Length
The beauty of a shag is that it was practically made to be worn messy, like Alexa Chung did here. It's also a great option for anyone growing out their bangs, because they blend in like one of the many layers.
