We’re all dreaming of a layered haircut until it’s time to style it at home. The wolf cut, the butterfly cut, and a trendy shag are all gorgeous beyond measure, but you need to style them properly for a bombshell look. And let’s be honest. Sectioning hair while brushing the layers out may be time-consuming. So, when we find easy tricks to help you out with a dreamy shag, we deliver them straight to your feed!
Penelope Gwen, a professional make-up artist and a wolf cut fan, shares her own cool girl hair inspo for a quick shag with minimal effort. And the best part is, the trick works for curly and straight hair!
“If you have a shag cut or layered hair, get yourself a diffuser attachment for your hair dryer!” the content creator explains on her Instagram page. Diffusers are essential tools in curly girls’ hair styling arsenal. They disperse the heat, reducing frizz and preventing natural curls from being blown out. The diffuser is also a great tool to add shagginess to curly wolf cut, creating a harmonious and effortless look.
If you also crave volume and texture but your hair is straight, diffusing your locks the right way may also do the job just great. Twist small sections of your hair when it’s still damp. You can change the size of the twists, but mind that smaller sections dry out faster. Then, diffuse the twisted strands into undone waves, moving up toward the roots as you dry. While most tutorials warn against massaging the hair with a diffuser because it causes frizz, you need to do just that to add shagginess. By gently moving the tool around your roots, you create a teasing effect and add some volume.
Don’t forget that the lion’s share (or better to say – the wolf’s share) of your styling relies on the hair products you apply to your locks. The same goes for layered cuts that need texture and movement but also a shiny finish for the ultimate slay. Penelope uses texturizing spray to keep the volume up throughout the day. The product possesses the ability to separate curls, enliven limp strands, and add the perfect amount of grit to fine hair.
Note down the expert-approved guide for wolf cut and butterfly cut to hair styling products that elevate your layers even further. Wave foam or sea salt spray emphasizes the wolf cut’s rich texture, while leave-in creams and oils add glow after a blowout. A volumizing foam on the roots is your secret for mega volume and extra shagginess.
