Beachy Shag

Modern Textured Tousled

With its long, blended layers and relaxed texture, the beachy shag features a gentler, smoother transition between lengths than a traditional shag, resulting in a softer, subtler appearance. This easy-to-maintain cut complements a variety of hair types.

Cut frequency 6-8 weeks

15 mins

Starting with dry hair, apply a heat protectant spray and then use a curling wand to create loose waves throughout the hair, alternating the directions of the curls to create a natural look. One all curls are complete and cooled, tousle them to create relaxed texture. Apply texturing spray and/or hairspray as desired to extend the life of the style.

15 mins

Starting with damp hair, apply a mousse made for curly hair and let air dry a few minutes. Blow dry using a diffuser, focusing on the roots and scrunching hair with your hands as you dry. Once dry, use a curling wand for touch-ups (if desired), and finish with a small amount of texturizing spray or cream. Tousle the waves to soften the look.
