A wolf cut mullet is a modern take on a classic shag, cut with heavy layers and tons of texture. It’s versatile and can be modified to fit different face shapes and hair types.
“Embrace the messy style,” says Missouri-based hairstylist and barber Jesse. “These cuts are meant to have texture and movement. Don’t be afraid to rough it up with your fingers or roll out of bed in the morning with a bit of a mess,” she adds.
Your lifestyle plays a vital role when you are considering a wolf cut and mullet. These cuts feature shorter layers, so pulling your hair into a bun or ponytail would be difficult. Otherwise, headbands and hats could be your best friends.
