#25: Long Layered Shag

A long-layered shag is the “It” haircut right now for many reasons. Shag cuts are a great option because they create a ton of movement for easy styling options from wash and go to adding loose curls on day 2 or 3. Shags are especially stunning haircuts for chubby faces because they balance out the curves, creating a more oval or elongated appearance.

Are you a woman with a full face searching for long layered haircuts? Then you’re definitely in the right place. Adding layers correctly can help create a slimming effect for plus-size beauties. The tapered layering that adds movement and body to the tresses is a huge plus!

Ease of styling and versatility are among the things to love about this trend. Stylist Gray Mattes of Nashville, TN, shares a few tips for picking the best haircut.

She suggests keeping a blunt perimeter. “This adds fullness and angles to a softer, rounded face. It even brings out the structure of the facial bones,” she explains.

Another recommendation is the mid-length layering that begins below the chin. She states, “It frames the face well without adding width to the cheeks and jaw areas.”

Women with thinner locks don’t want too many layers that take away bulk and weight. Mattes instead proposes a face frame and light layering at the perimeter of the cut.

Your lifestyle and commitment to maintenance are matters best discussed with your stylist. These answer the question, “Would this type of cut benefit me and my goals for my hair?”

If bringing an inspirational photo, the model must have the same hair texture and density as yours. If not, keep an open mind and trust the person behind the chair.

Mattes says, “Hairdressers are professionals who want what’s best for you. Ask if your chosen cut suits you, and listen and consider what your stylist has to say.”
