What is octopus haircut?

The octopus haircut is essentially this rebellious kind of hairstyle, which is a mixture between the shaggy cut and the mullet. You can easily distinguish it by the mega volume at the top and the layers that are effortlessly falling, and creating the illusion of octopus tentacles (this is where the name comes from). Many celebrities are currently adapting it like Kaia Gerber and Billy Eilish. According to some hair specialists, this type of haircut is the best option for people with round or square face shapes, because of the layers that can really frame your face and give you a softer look. If you have straight or wavy hair, you don’t have to spend much time when styling it. Now, let’s check out the different options that you can try out!

Octopus haircut tutorial: What to ask for?

I know that with so many trends already coming up this year, it can be hard for the hairdressers to know every single haircut out there. That is why it is good to be prepared and know exactly what you want, so there are no surprises. You can simply ask for the octopus hair with layers and show this video, since it is explained in details. I am sure that your hair specialist will know what to do from there on. I do not recommend grabbing the scissors and trying to make these layers on your own. They are very sharp and you can mess them up! The volume at the top is also hard to recreate if you don’t know how to work with the scissors. Check out the video, make the appointment and just experiment! I am sure you are going to love the results!

Is octopus haircut easy to maintain?

I am going to be honest here, this hairstyle really does require more maintenance, when it comes to the layers. You will have to go to the hairdresser more often to make sure they keep this sharp look and the volume on the top. However, on regular basis, you will not need to grab the flat iron or the blow-dryer and apply heat. You can simply leave it air-dry after you take a shower. This will help you achieve this seamless look!
