Shaggy haircuts are ultra trendy and can be worn at one length with styling, within the interior with invisible layers, or choppy layers like a true shag.

#50: Blonde Bob with Dark Roots

Try a blonde bob with dark roots if you want a new, trendy style. Darker roots make for a softer grow-out if you have naturally dark hair. If you’re used to having light pieces around your face, you can ask your stylist to bring the blonde up to your root in the front and keep the rest darker.

A shaggy bob is a haircut created using the razor cut technique to add choppy ends and textured layers that can be asymmetrical or blunt. Since the shag’s conception in the ’70s, the organic cut has withstood time and kept on evolving to its modern and chicer versions.

Celebrated Texas-based hairdresser and Salon Bugatti owner Chris Jones has mastered the art of all things shaggy and messy – from wavy and curly strands to straight bobs and A-line cuts, he’s demonstrated that #shorthairgoals can easily be pulled off with a perfectly imperfect bob shag cut.
