Short Shag Haircuts That’ll Finally Convince You to Make the Chop

The shag trend is here to stay.

In the age of micro-bangs and unicorn hair, we’re ready to go back—way back—to a classic cut: the shag. Shaggy styles have been back in the limelight this year, for good reason, and the modern shag haircut is still going strong into the fall. We’re not talking Mick Jagger, circa 1972, but rather a nostalgic nod that’s approachable, softer, and absolutely not one-size-fits-all. We rounded up the coolest short shag haircuts to try out this year, and these looks are packed with layers, texture, and bangs of all types, but kept at the lowest maintenance of lengths. Check out these short shag hairstyles that give of-the-moment inspiration for a throwback style.
