A wolf cut with bangs is a trendy layered haircut with a soft face-framing feature. This chop is an outgrown mullet with tons of shaggy layers. It’s a great option for ladies wanting to flaunt a tousled, effortless style!
Jasmine Blackbear, a stylist from Dallas, TX, describes wolf cuts as a disconnected look. “There’s a dramatic length difference between the front and back of the ear. The cut is a comfort zone for those who can’t commit to a traditional mullet,” she explains.
Blackbear is worried that some hairstylists overthink the whole cut. They seem confused over the sectioning and the disconnection in the cut.
Her advice is to just go for it! “I love that the wolf haircut is on the edgier side, and women want the harsh line,” Blackbear states.
The length is a significant factor in achieving that layered shape. Blackbear suggests “not cut it too long as it will only look like a heavy face-framing.”
Other adorable aspects of this cut are the wispy texture on the hair tips and how the ends are beveled towards the face.
One way to keep your hair looking on point is to style it. “The styling is very low-maintenance. Women can use any hot tools to style the ends and achieve a salon-inspired look,” she adds.

#1: Bright Copper Shaggy Wolf
A bright copper shaggy wolf cut is super trendy right now. This is a perfect cut if you want to try something edgier than a traditional shag.

A wolf cut with a see-through fringe is a great mid-length hairstyle option for a semi-casual look. To get this style, use a razor to cut the fringe to create a soft, choppy texture.

This style is also easy to maintain and style, as it can be air-dried or blow-dried for a more polished look. Some helpful styling tips for this look include using a diffuser when blow-drying. Also, avoid over-brushing, and use a light hairspray or texture spray to lock it in.

If your hair doesn’t like to be razor cut, deep point cutting with shears is also a great way to achieve this style. You might be tempted to keep the top layers longer. However, doing so wouldn’t give you the volume or look you’re trying to achieve.
