Short Shaggy Hairstyles and Shag Haircuts

Last Updated: July 1st, 2016.

A shaggy hairstyle or haircut is one that incorporates a lot of layers that vary in length. Short shaggy hairstyles are generally easier to maintain due to their laid back and effortless appeal. In order to make the most of these shaggy hairstyles, it is important that they are styled in the correct manner. If not styled properly, a shaggy hairstyle can end up looking too messy.

Shaggy hairstyles that are short in length can look absolutely stunning if they have been chosen according to your face shape. If you happen to have a narrow chin and strong jaw line, then your shaggy haircut can end just above your chin. The short layers in the hairstyle will really define your facial features. On the other hand if you have more of a rounder face, then get your layers to end at least an inch below your chin.

You also want to ensure that you choose your layers wisely. Though short shaggy hairstyles are all about the layers, they have to be cut according to what will suit you best. If you want to add a funky attitude to the look, then opt for short choppy layers. These will instantly give an edge to your personality. However, if you want a softer appeal, then choose a wispy layered cut. Shaggy hairstyles can be very versatile; you can even opt for shorter layers at the top and longer layers near the chin to frame your face. This would look particularly great on those that have thin hair.

For getting wavy short shaggy hairstyles, start by applying a curl defining product to damp hair. Once the hair has been quite air dried, use a blow dryer on the rest of the hair. This will add texture to the layers as they dry and will make them look wavy. You can curl some layers for added definition and then set them in place with a styling product.

Style choppy layered short shaggy hairstyles with a straightening iron and some shine hairspray. Straighter layers will give a more modern and funky appeal to the look. If you feel that you cannot pull the look off, then add a fringe to softer the look and make it more wearable.

Shaggy hairstyles on short hair give you an instant attitude. In order to make the most of these hairstyles, they have to be styled perfectly. Take a hairstyling product and use it to define the layers. Skip the hairsprays since they can make the layers in the short shaggy hairstyles look too stiff. Hair clays and hair waxes are perfect for shaggy hairstyles. They help add more definition to the casual appeal. If you are using hair wax, just remember to warm the product a bit in your hand before using it.
