If you've been itching to change up your look now that the warmer weather is quickly approaching, there's a new hair trend in town that you are definitely going to want to consider. We've seen lots of different color trends for hair recently that are new and fun, but now we officially have the first hair cut trend of the summer and it's an updated look on an old favorite.
The shag has been around for decades but was made popular most recently by Jennifer Aniston's character Rachel Green on the hit show Friends. Since then we've seen the shag come and go, but a newly updated shag complete with longer bangs is emerging as the must-have look of the summer, and it's perfect for moms.
Anne Hathaway is one of Hollywood's biggest stars who is currently rocking the new look, and it is simply stunning.
Celebrity stylist Adir Abergel gave the actress her new, chic look and explained step by step on Instagram how regular women, who don't have access to celebrity stylists, can achieve the same look at home.
Refinery29 writes the reason the shag is so perfect is that it looks good on anyone. "The mid-length shag cut lends itself to a variety of styles," celebrity stylist Jillian Halouska told the magazine. "The defining element is the texture, which infuses more layers and softness than the blunt cut that was everywhere last year."
Actress Natalie Portman, who often sports a long bob arrived at the recent WeDay celebration wearing her hair much shorter and sporting textured layers, proving that the style is already a must-have in Hollywood.
The best part of the shag haircut is that there are no rules. There's no need for pin straight hair or perfect parts, and oftentimes the unrulier the hair the better. You don't need to worry about what the rain or humidity will do to your hair because sometimes messy and volume make a shag even better. That's great news for busy moms who have even less time in the summer to fuss over themselves because the kids are all off school.
The shag can also work with shorter hair or long hair. Halle Berry is a busy mom of two and has been rocking the long shag for a while now, showing just how versatile this cut can be.
If you've been dying to try something new at the hair salon this sexy, shaggy cut with long bangs may be just what you've been waiting for. Change can be fun and exciting and if you decide the shaggy look isn't for you, you can always grow it out.
