57 Most Universal Modern Shag Haircut Solutions


#22: Perfect Bangs and Wild Layers

Make no mistakes, the 90s are coming back in a big way. Opting for full, straight bangs may be a throwback, but it’s worth experimenting with. Keep the locks shoulder length and try sharply angled layers throughout for a modern take on the shag that blends finishes and plays with textures.

#23: Short and Medium Layers for Fine Hair

Shorter layers are a go-to not only for thick hair. Fine hair can look adorably wispy with layers around the crown. Layered hair isn’t always easy, but with a little feathering and styling you can work it.

Sure, most shag hairstyles do include layers, but this layered bob is definitely a champion among its peers. Layers through the length swept to one side create a beautiful texture whether you prefer to wear your hair straight or curled.

#25: Medium Tousled Hair with Bangs

A medium shag with bangs is optimal if you want to wear your hair loose and tousled while spending minimum time on styling. It’s best suited for medium textured hair but can work for thin hair, too.

Girlish and pretty, a layered shag offers a magnificent way to wear your hair down and have a current, effortless, lived-in look. The jet black hair color is down to earth and neutral. If it flatters you, pick it to compliment the textured shag style.
