The must-try hairstyle everyone is asking for right now

The shag is the most influential hair style this year.

The seventies-influenced ‘do with its softly feathered curtain fringe and flicky layers that can veer well into mullet territory, is the hottest hair to have right now.

From those pondering a change by pinning images of ‘Wolf cut’ on Pinterest – that’s the version that’s a little longer at the back, with tapered layers that are dishevelled and wild – to colourists doubling down on trends by combining it with a strawberry-peach hue that’s also wildly popular everywhere, and it’s clear the shag hairstyle is sticking around.

At the top of the year hairstylist Michael Beel, of Buoy Salon in Wellington was tipping it would be a ‘thing’ encouraging us all to choose “Hair that embraces movement” as it would be the biggest trend this year.

“Getting your hairdresser to add some more layers into your hair with a nod to an 80’s ‘shag’ is going to encourage any natural movement and texture to happen,” he advised.

Then there’s the little matter of Billie Eilish revealing the one of the most dramatic hair switcheroos of recent memory, when she unveiled her bleach blonde shag hairstyle on Instagram in March.

The singer achieved the honour of reaching 1 million likes in the fastest time ever on the social media platform – something she achieved again with her cover of Vogue a few weeks later.

Other celebrities – think Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, et al – have taken the approach even further, veering well into mullet territory, but we’re into it! The shag however, remains the more versatile option, likely why it’s become so popular right now.

Think you might be open to considering some extra layers?

Let us provide you with compelling evidence on why it’s a great idea. All there is to do is hit ‘save’ and show your stylist next time you’re in the salon.
