We all love a bit of retro vibes! Especially when it comes to the bold shag cut. The wild hairstyle from the 70’s has been making a big comeback in the last few years and will continue to do so. The modern variation is similar to the mullet, but has a less pronounced transition from short to long and thus looks beautiful and elegant. For women looking for a bold haircut in their 40s, the shag cut is a great choice. The layers in the hair create volume, the shorter front section frames the face and the playful bangs add a great, rejuvenating accent. Does it sound good to you?

If you’re looking for a bold yet low-maintenance hairstyle for your wavy hair, try a medium-length shag cut paired with side-swept bangs. Perfect for mature women who don’t have time for elaborate hairstyles, this haircut is easy to style. Side bangs add coverage and a flattering frame to the face

Side parting instead of bangs

Although bangs combine wonderfully with all shaggy hairstyles, they simply do not suit every woman. Side-parted shaggy hair, on the other hand, is perfect for a modern and bold look on any hair texture. If you’re a woman over 40, a shag cut with a side parting looks great because it frames your face and adds volume in all the right places.

Shag cut for long hair

At 40 you can still wear your long hair without worrying about things like age! How about a shaggy hairstyle, for example?

Layered V haircut

If you have thick hair, this haircut will remove all that extra weight while adding texture and shape to your hairstyle. Ask your stylist to add several messy, textured layers and bangs that frame your face. A V-shaped cut is actually just a series of layers that frame the face when the hair is brought forward, but it appears in a “V” shape when the hair is pushed all the way back.

Long shaggy hairstyle with feathered layers

Feathered Layers – the perfect shaggy hairstyle for long hair

With a shag cut, the hair is simply layered to create volume while maintaining length. Feathered layers on a shaggy haircut refer to how it is styled. If you style the layers backwards in a feathery way, they appear more tousled and often also fuller. The result – a beautiful haircut that flatters your face.
