Far ahead of its time: Alexa Chung wore the Wolf Cut long before it experienced a renaissance thanks to TikTok.
With her hairstyle in 2016, model Alexa Chung was one step ahead of us all when it comes to hairstyle trends.
In 2016, long before TikTok and the abundance of hair trends that emerge from it today, Alexa Chung already wore the biggest trend hairstyle of summer 2021. Always ahead of its time, Chung posted a mirror selfie on Instagram with her hairstyle no less than wore the popular Wolf Cut.
The du jour haircut is a hybrid of a mullet and shag hairstyle, both of which have seen a renaissance in recent months. Chung's 2016 version was just as loose and disheveled as we'd expect from this cut. However, Chung has always remained true to the short hair length.
Stars like Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish have also been wearing the style for several months, triggering a real hairstyle hype on social networks. With its gently falling steps, the Wolf Cut frames the face and accentuates the cheekbones perfectly. In addition, it is a style that is suitable for both long and shorter hair and really flatters any face shape.
An excellent style to try if you are looking for a cool look. Hairstylist Kristin Ess told VOGUE that he "brings out the natural waves and texture of the hair in a way that normally doesn't when the cut is longer and heavier."
These days, Chung's hair is still just as face-framing, sitting an inch above her shoulders in a perfectly imperfect French bob. Will she still go back to the wolf cut one day or predict another hairstyle trend?
