This year we're wearing Octopus Cut! Never heard? We explain what is behind the hairstyle trend with the bizarre name.
Another wildlife-inspired haircut! After the wolf cut comes the octopus cut. Granted, sounds crazier than it actually is...
The Octopus Cut doesn't get its name from anywhere. With its voluminous crown and the narrow, curved tips, the haircut reminds us a little of the sea dweller octopus. The cool look requires one thing above all: extreme levels in the top hair for lots of volumes. In this way, the lengths are greatly thinned out. The hairstyle is completed by individual longer strands that fall softly, fringed and undone. The octopus look can be classified between shag, mullet, and wolf cut. There are also parallels to the Rachel Cut from the 90s: This is a layered fringed cut that Jennifer Aniston wore in her "Friends" role as Rachel Green.
This octopus haircut is perfect for you if you are currently wearing a transitional length and want to give it a fresh look. Above all, the trend cut conjures up the additional volume. The many layers make your hair look thick and dynamic. However, if you have very fine hair, the octopus cut is not the right choice, as the frayed lengths can accentuate this effect.
Tired of time-consuming styling in the morning? No problem with the perfectly imperfect Octopus Cut. Due to the layers, the cut falls almost by itself, after all, it should look casual and undone. You are therefore welcome to let the trend hairstyle grow out for a while before you go to the hairdresser again. If you want to increase the volume look, you can work some hairspray or powder into the roots. For particularly smooth, curved tips, it is best to blow dry your hair with a round brush after washing.
