A trendy low-maintenance shaggy haircut with bangs boosts your natural hair texture. It’s practical, versatile, and stylish. It works wonders on women’s facial features, highlighting their beauty in the best way.

Dinah Gacon, a hairstylist and owner of Textured Petite Salon in Westborough, MA, shares her thoughts about the cut. “With the right layering, a shag brings out your best facial features,” she says. “It carves weight in the right places, making fine hair voluminous, thick hair manageable, and curly hair softer.”

Gacon points out that the vital aim of a low-maintenance cut is to space out your hair care appointments. “Trims are done every 3-4 months to maintain the shape of the cut,” she says. “A shag won’t entail tons of work when styling; air drying this cut creates lived-in finish.”

Some women display a concern with the concept of disconnected layers on a shag cut. “Shags can be disconnected, meaning the layers can be much shorter, and the length can be much longer. If you’re conservative in how you choose to wear your hair, this cut isn’t for you,” she explains.

Investing time in a professional consultation is essential. It helps you decide what length and type of cut you can pull off. Don’t fret about being adventurous, and feel free to play with some face-framing layers!
