Starting with the queen of the shaggy, layered bohemian look, my style Icon, Stevie Nicks. Over the years Stevie has rocked a multitude of shaggy looks, and if you like your hair longer, her’s is a great style to shoot for! It’s casual, not-fussy, glamourous and sexy.
Straight, razored, with bangs and a DGAF attitude, Joan Jett’s hairdo is iconic. Joan is still rocking a variation of this look to this day, and she still looks like the rockstar she is. You’ll need a good straightener to get this precision look.
Speaking of badbass bitches, Chrissie Hynde’s eye grazing fringe and shaggy style is a classic. I’ve tried to emulate this style so many times, Chrissie was one of my oldest style icons, and I’m in love with the fact that she’s still rocking it. Great style lasts forever.
One of the most recognizable hairstyles of all time, Farrah Fawcett hair is good shit. Big, bountiful, and feathered, Farrah’s wings are the things thin-haired girls dream of.
An update on the shag, Alexa’s look is modern and non-fussy. It’s a “I woke up like this” look that still looks polished and cool. One of the flatter-on-top styles, this works best if you have a slim face. Round and heart-shapes might find with thinner on top look makes the face wider. If you have thick unmanageable hair this is a good way to thin it out.
Curly shags are one of my faves. Zendaya’s curls are a bit flatter on top, and then graduate down to thinner ends, but the overall look is voluminous and shaggy. It frames the face and makes you look like a goddess with a mane.
The lady of a million shags, Jane Fonda put the shag on the map. She’s likely had more variations of the shag than anyone else on this list, and deserves credit for making this style mainstream. For those interested in a 1960’s shag, this is the one to go for.
Lisa Rinna’s hair is ICONIC. Short, feathered, spiky and precise, it looks both casual and coiffed. I have rocked this style in the past and it’s not as easy as it looks- this takes a lot of precision cutting, so it’s not as easy going as some of these styles. Tina Turner
What’s love got to do with Tina Turner’s Iconic spiky shag? Everything. I am so in love with this iconic hair style, it’s beautiful, bold, and ENORMOUS. I’m always mesmerized by the beauty of it.
David Bowie rocked a number of shaggy styles in his day, some were more mullet-y than others. This is a pretty classic 1970’s men’s shag. I wanted to be sure to include Ziggy Stardust because this is a haircut that also works well for men. Should I do a list of men’s shaggy hairstyles? Let me know in the comments!
