are officially back and here to stay this season. We’ve seen voluminous 80s blow drys and perms on the runway, and even the mullet. Forget about the hairstyles that footballers were wearing back in the 80s. The 2014 mullet is far from its predecessor and even has a new name. Shaggy hair is soon going to be hot property. The trend.
Fashions and hair trends always come full circle. You might have laughed at photos of your young self with a mullet, but, believe it or not, the mullet style is going to be a big look for spring-summer. Luckily, the shaggy hairstyle isn’t identical to the old-school mullet. Lovers of the 80s can now proudly show off their love for the iconic decade by growing their hair shoulder length without copying the extreme layers of the mullet. Who can wear shaggy hair?
There’s no room for shrinking violets here. The confident and fashion-forward amongst you, who like to keep up to date with the latest fashion trends, as well as die-hard 80s fans, are more suited to this look. Now that shaggy hair has been spotted on the runway and models, you can give this look a go without looking like you’re stuck in a time warp! Stay away from this style if you have fine hair, as lots of layers
are needed which will make your hair look even thinner and lacking in volume. How can I create the look?
Before going for the full chop, take smaller steps and gradually cut your hair shorter at each hair appointment. Why not try a bob
, which has been the ultimate trend recently? If you like the bob and are still tempted by short hair, make an appointment with your stylist
and ask for a shaggy haircut. Explain that you definitely aren’t going for the ‘rat tail’ look and that you want the modern version of this style. Whichever version of the look you go for, remember that it needs to be mid-length with messy, choppy layers to nail the glam-rock look. © Pixelformula /Burberry Prorsum prêt-à-porter runway, Spring-Summer 2014 © Jean Louis David
