New year, new me? In January we all long for change to start fresh again. So what would be better right now than a new hairstyle? We tell you everything about the trend hairstyle of the year - the shag cut! This is behind the hair trend 2022 and this is how it works.
The hair trend in the new year is loose, casual, and uncomplicated. We're fed up with eternal styling and severe looks! That's why the shag cut 2022 is the trend hairstyle par excellence. But what is behind the haircut?
The shag cut is also referred to as a shag mullet because it is based on the characteristic haircut of the 1980s. But before you flinch, don't worry! The hair trend in 2022 has nothing in common with the harsh look of the tousled look of yesteryear!
Rather, it is a heavily toned-down variant that is only slightly reminiscent of a mullet because of the loose layered cut. Especially the hair that frames our face is shaped with layers. However, the transitions with the shag cut are made much more gently. Another hairstyle trend that goes well with the shag cut is short bangs.
The slight steps gently frame the face of influencer Maria Bernad:
The hair trend works with straight to slightly curly hair structures and can also be worn by any face shape. The only requirement for the shag cut is the hair length. It should be about shoulder length to show off the look effectively. In 2022 we will wear the parting in the middle again.
Actress Maisie Williams shows how the look works:
The great thing about the hair trend: the layers around the face create a lot of dynamics, we look more awake, younger and livelier. The face also comes into its own as it looks framed. Another advantage: the different lengths of the strands give our hair more volume.
