A long shaggy bob is a shoulder-length haircut created by a combination of jagged ends and layers. The idea is to give locks an effortless edge and lots of texture, movement, and volume. So why go for a short bob when you can pull it off, too!

Ashley Marie, a stylist from Charlotte, NC, describes the shag haircut as the style that’s meant to be carefree. “The woman that wears this is ready to put the flat iron away. She’s ready to embrace her hair in its natural form, or create a texture that suits her inner funk.”

The texture is the first thing to think about when opting for a shaggy lob hairstyle. Maintenance comes next. Ashley says, “My advice is to consider your daily routine. Do the trims fit into your schedule? Can you afford 2-3 haircuts a year?”

For styling, Ashley’s fave product line is by Hairstory. She loves Hair Balm as a go-to product for natural curls. The Undressed texturizing spray is what she uses on women who need help in boosting texture.

So are you ready for a shag? Ashley advises finding a stylist that focuses on short haircutting. Not everyone is comfortable doing such styles and cuts.

“Any style can be tailored to any face shape, hair texture, and routine. It’s just about finding a hairstylist who knows how to do that,” she adds.

So before your next hair appointment, check out these photos of the trendiest long shaggy bob haircuts and hairstyles.

#4: Sassy Shaggy Texture

Do you have thick hair and want a longer bob? Ask your stylist to texturize the ends of the hair with a razor, slide cutting, or texturizes. This will help skinny up the ends, but be aware of too much graduation in the perimeter. This will build up unwanted weight. Instead, focus on crown layers with textured perimeter length.

#5: Jet Black Textured Lob

The jet-black textured lob is the epitome of rocker chic. The cut can be styled more sophisticated for the day, or with some volume and texture for a night out. Avoid washing your hair too often to keep the color rich and shiny. It’s helpful to use a shine cream or a shine spray to finish the style. Don’t forget to ask your stylist for advice on bringing your style from day to night. Typically, I go for the volumizing powder and texture spray and rough up the hair, occasionally adding some random waves with a wand.

#6: Brown and Caramel Balayage on a Shaggy Lob

If you have finer hair and want a long bob with more body, did you know adding textured layers can open your hair? And it can give it a fuller appearance! If you decide to try this, the shorter layers push the longer layers out away from your face. This makes styling easier and supports your volume from going flat.

#7: Cute Shaggy Lob with Feathered Bangs

If you plan to do a cute shaggy lob with feathered bangs, begin by gathering a few photos for your stylist. Go over them during your next visit. Length and style can vary depending on the desired frequency of salon maintenance. Fringe, for example, can grow from short to curtain bangs and face-framing. All grow out gracefully between visits. You may want to try a variety of these styles or during the grow out before deciding on your signature look.

#8: Voluminous Shaggy Lob Cut

Live on the edge with a voluminous shaggy lob cut. Ask for lots of layers and point cutting to achieve a wispy shag. You can have the back cut shorter then the front for extra pizzazz. Doing so will make your shape appear longer. This cut works best on straighter hair. The best way to style it would be to use your hands as you dry straight down. A brush will inhibit the wispy separation and messiness that the shape craves.

If you have long, fine hair and want to get fullness without affecting your length, try layers. They are also known as feathered layers or textured layers. The layers will remove the weight from your length. You will need to ask your stylist to leave your weight line out, in the back area of your hair. That way it doesn’t look straggly on your ends.

#33: Curly Shaggy Lob

A curly shaggy lob haircut can benefit from a huge, kinky shape that goes perfectly with curly bangs. With the perfect layering, it can frame the face well. When preppin’, apply a combo of moisturizing curl cream and control gel to redefine the curls.

This curly shag lob hairstyle is a baby shag haircut that was created by salon owner and stylist Joy Ishii of San Diego, CA. “This cut begins with the fringe. The curtain fringe builds upon itself adding a mini undercut. The shorter face-framing layers help create this fun shape,” explains Ishii.

This shaggy haircut gives your hair a lot of movement. You can style it beachy, straight, or even with your natural texture. This cut can be customized to you, so be adventurous and make your layers short or keep them longer!

Ishii believes shaggy lob hairstyles are versatile and can be used on all textures of hair. “Straight, wavy, and curly hair will have so much fun having a baby shag! If you have curly hair, Bumble and Bumble has their own curl line which helps with styling. It’s a styling cream for girls with curls who want to air-dry their hair, so don’t blowdry when using this product,” she notes.
