The wolf cut, in a nutshell, is a mixture of two currently most popular and edgy haircuts – the mullet and the shag. Supposedly originated in South Korea, the wolf haircut features loads of chunky, shaggy layers on the top and wispy, wavy ends at the back.
Are you wild enough to pull this hairstyle off? To get some inspiration, look through the best examples of the wolf cut to date.
#1: Long Wavy Wolf Cut
This subtle version of the wolf cut is perfect for thick and coarse, naturally wavy hair. Boasting plenty of volume and texture, it’s easy to maintain with just a splash of sea salt spray or curl enhancing serum.
#2: Wolf Cut for Medium Length Hair
A blend of heavy, stacked fringe and heavily layered mullet-like ends is the best bet for straight, thicker hair. Emphasize the texture of this cut with the color: bright, piecey highlights will add dimension and movement to your hairstyle.
#3: Long Layered Wolf Cut
We love this long heavily layered style that double the wolf haircut trend with its bright, juicy purple hair color. Style it with a round brush and use some texturizing cream to get that signature messy wolf haircut look.
#4: Short Wolf Cut with Vivid Color Bangs
Bob isn’t an option anymore, so give your locks a new, modern shape with this shaggy wolf cut. Ask your hair stylist for some color accents to frame your face and you are ready for the new summer season.
#5: Mullet Wolf Haircut with Shaggy Bangs
Give your fine hair some oomph with this totally audacious wolf cut. Ideal for naturally wavy hair or those with perm, it will give you plenty of volume and texture. Use some mousse or texturizing spray and blow dry your hair using a diffuser.
#6: Curly Wolf Cut
This curly wolf hair cut is everything. We love the combination of the bouncy and voluminous top and textured lightweight ends. Edgy, yet effortless, this hairstyle is perfect for your curls.
#7: Textured Blonde Wolf Haircut
To achieve this messy, tousled wolf hairstyle, we recommend using some volumizing mousse or spray and blow dry your hair with your head downwards. Use some root powder to emphasize your natural texture.
#8: Tapered Wolf Cut with Contrasting Colors
Shorter layers on the top and tapered wavy ends look fab with the contrasting combo of silver and jet black hair color. If you have straight hair, give your locks some movement with tongs or a flat iron.
#9: Bright Ginger Voluminous Wolf Haircut
Featuring thick, choppy layers and heavy curtain bangs, this wolf cut takes more from the shag cut and less from the mullet. Paired with the bright burned orange hair color, it looks totally on point.
#10: Super Shaggy Wolf Cut
Whilst wolf cuts can be of any hair lengths, this style looks especially epic on long hair. Shaggy bangs and longer layers make a perfect face frame and bring all the attention to your features.
#11: Short Wolf for Naturally Curly Hair
This curly wolf cut is a must-try for every curly girl who considers a short haircut. Trending right now, this soft blend of the shag and the mullet is an absolute stunner.
#12: Classic Wolf Cut with Layered Fringe
Wolf haircuts are known for their low-maintenance chic – it’s often enough to let your hair air dry and flick the bangs out with a flat iron. For thin hair, you can use some volumizing product, though.
#13: Edgy Wolf Cut with Heavy Bangs
Even if you have pin straight hair, the wolf cut can work for you. This hair type tends to fall flat and look lifeless; however, the wolf hairdo is a great way to give it some body and texture.
#14: Voluminous Wolf Haircut with Wispy Layers
Although the wolf cut is generally suitable for any hair type, it looks best on thick hair. With short choppy layers at the crown, thinner ends may look flat and lacking volume on those with fine hair.
#15: Choppy Blonde Wolf Cut
Go full on trend with this extreme wolf haircut but please be aware that the growing out process may take you a few months. If you have any doubts, have a second thought. Even though it’s totally worth a try!
#16: Short Razored Wolf Cut
A few choppy layers at the crown combined with thinner ends make a superb look for any hair type and texture. Use a round brush to flick out the ends and add some sea salt spray for a tousled finish.
#17: Wolf Cut with Curly Bangs
Choose the wild way to wear your curls with this wolf cut – one of the hottest hair trends to date. Perfect for the oval or elongated face shape, it will become your trademark.
#18: Shaggy Cut for Naturally Curly Hair Texture
You may think that curly hair always requires extra time and effort to style, but it just needs to be cut into the right shape. Wolf cut is a great style to add plenty of texture and character to your locks.
#19: Soft Wolf Haircut
Can a shag haircut look cute and feminine? Totally yes! Just look at this soft baby pink wolf cut. Wear it straight or wavy but don’t forget to use a decent amount of texturizing spray.
#20: Deep Teal Shullet Haircut
Named after two haircuts – shag and mullet, shullet is a synonym for the wolf cut. There are certainly more of the mullet features in this look, with its long, tapered layers.
