Shaggy hairstyles are making a serious comeback. We’re seeing more and more people swapping their blunt and feathered layers for a perfectly imperfect shaggy alternative that adds texture and body to their mane. Interested in trying this throwback hairstyle trend for yourself? Just be sure to fine-tune the look to your face shape for your most flattering beauty look! Not sure where to start? Keep reading for eight of the best shag hairstyles for every face shape.
Have an oval face shape? You’re in luck! You can pull off just about any shag hairstyle thanks to your symmetrical face shape. Here are two of our favorite shaggy styles for oval faces.
To add definition to your face, try switching things up with a shaggy bob that falls at your chin. Be sure to play up your texture with the help of a pomade, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty. Start by working a dime-sized amount throughout your mane, then add more as needed. The messier, the better!
Prefer a long hairstyle? Keep your length while adding definition via some shaggy layers. Pair your ‘do with a side-swept bang for a seriously on-trend look. Pump up the volume with a few spritzes of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Air-Blown Texture Mist, which will give your mane a full-bodied, blown-out look.
If you have a round face, you can actually use your hairstyle to give your face a more sculpted appearance—without breaking out a single contour product. Does that have some (or a lot of) appeal? Here are two of the best shaggy hairstyles for round faces.
Keep things on the shorter side with a shaggy lob. Longer in the front, a shaggy lob will help to elongate your face shape, creating a slimming effect. Emphasize your texture with the help of a wave spray. Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Waves Swept Spray onto towel-dried hair, scrunch, and allow your hair to air dry for loose, effortlessly wavy locks!
If you’re a long hair gal, opt for a shag with long layers that start past your chin. This will help visually lengthen your round shape without adding to its width. Plus, long layers are amazing for adding movement and dimension to any hairstyle.
Have a heart-shaped face? Your dainty, defined features call for the right shaggy cut to balance out your look—and we have two ideas!
Those who love short hair should look no further than a shaggy bob haircut—accompanied by bangs, of course. This shaggy hairstyle will help minimize your forehead for a more balanced look.
Want to go even shorter? Thankfully, there are plenty of short shag hairstyle options—like a shaggy pixie. A shaggy pixie also happens to pair beautifully with a heart-shaped face as it can help accentuate those beautiful, defined cheekbones! Consider trying one with side-swept bangs and plenty of layers on top so you can play up the texture and create a more symmetrical appearance.
If you have a square face, you may want to use your shaggy hairstyle to soften your sharp angles. If that’s the case, consider one of the following two shag hairstyles for square faces.
When it comes to square faces, face-framing layers will be your best friend. This ‘do will help soften your jawline and elongate your face. You can pair your shaggy layers with short, medium, or long locks! Play them up with a bit of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Thickening Medium Hold Cream Paste.
Still searching for your shaggy hair match? Look no further than a lob with curtain bangs. The longer layers in the front will help elongate your face while your curtain bangs will help to round out your square forehead.
