Before you book your hairdresser appointment you may want to do a little bit of research before you book in for a shag haircut, there are some important decisions you will need to make before you will be able to rock that amazing shag haircut of yours.
1. Know Your Face Shape
Before making your mind up on a certain style of a shag haircut, check your face shape to see what length will suit your face best. This can be done by simply looking in the mirror and deciding what shape best fits your face or if you’re not sure what face shape you have you can even download apps on to your phone that will tell you what rough face shape you have. The reason it is best to check your face shape before getting your hair cut is because if you have a narrow face, a shorter shag haircut may look best on you, whereas if you have a wider face, such as a square-shaped face, a longer shag haircut will probably best compliment your facial features than a shorter style would. However, if you’re confident that you would rock the hairstyle no matter what length you choose then go for it! It’s 2019 and if you love it then that’s all that matters.
2. Decide How You Will Want To Style Your Hair Most Days
Another thing that you will need to consider before going for the chop is how you will want to style your hair most of the time. For example if you need to wear your hair in a ponytail or a bun for work or if you will have curly hair most days then it is probably best for you to keep a few extra inches on to your hair so that they can still fit in a bauble and won’t jump up too much when your hair is curled, unless an extra choppy shag haircut is the style that you’re after. Or if you decide that you will probably be wearing your hair down and straight most of the time then you could probably get away with taking a few extra inches off of your ‘do, depending on what exact look it is that you’re after.
3. Have Hair Inspos and Lots Of Them
Before going for any hair cut it is important to have some hair inspiration to know exactly what style you want, but with a shag haircut it is crucial to have lots of inspiration so you know down to a T what it is that you want as there are many different ways you can style a shag haircut. Some great sources of inspiration that you can find online are Instagram or Pinterest. All you need to do is type into the search is the term shag haircut with the desired length and even your hair colour and face shape to find an accurate picture of the exact style you would like. Take these to the hairdresser with you when you book your appointment so that you can make sure you look as good as you possibly can.
4. Know Your Hair Type
The final and possibly most important thing to know before booking your hairdresser appointment for a shag haircut is to know your hair type. Is your hair straight, wavy, or curly? Is your scalp dry, combo, or oily? And what about the ends? Are they dry? There is a whole bunch of things that you will need to consider before making the decision to go for a shag haircut. All of these things will impact the way your hairstyle will sit. Look online to see what other people with the same hair type as you are saying about how they find having a shag haircut and how they best style their hair and what products they are using to best maintain their hair.
