Do you remember the "Rachel Cut"? The "Octopus Haircut" is the modern version - and we'll tell you how it's styled here.
A hairstyle named after an octopus? Yes, you've read that correctly. In Asia, the "octopus haircut" is already a trend and is celebrated as a modern version of the "Rachel cut" made famous by Jennifer Aniston in the series "Friends". The look is not only nostalgic and iconic but also provides a lot of volume to your hair. But how is an "octopus haircut" cut and styled and what is special about it? We'll tell you here.
Even if the name of this hairstyle trend is a bit whimsical, you should definitely try it out. The "octopus haircut" is cut in a similar way to the shag cut, i.e. with many layers and different fringed lengths. On the top of the head, the hair appears more voluminous due to the layers, becomes narrower in length, and gets a curved shape at the tips - just like the arms of an octopus! This look is also a bit reminiscent of the trendy mullet, but here far less is cut off and the layers all flow into one another instead of being drastically delimited.
If you want a pony cut, you can combine the classic curtain bangs with an octopus cut. This look is perfect for you if you are currently wearing a transitional length and want to freshen it up a bit. Above all, those who like volume and want more fullness for their hair will also like it. The many layers make the hair appear thicker and therefore more dynamic. When styling, it is best to use a hairdryer and a round brush to perfectly set the curved tips in the scene. One thing is guaranteed: With the "Octopus Haircut", some heads will turn after you - even if you don't have eight arms...
