The Shag Haircut is generally short, layered, with more layers at the crown of the head than below. Bangs are optional and can be pushed off the face with the use of the right styling substances. The ears are not cut out; the shag-adorned should be able to tuck the hair behind the ear, or, even better, pull it back with dime-store barrettes in garish plasticky colors.
The look is flippy and youthful, but not childish. Although the few
standard features hold, many modifications can be made to suit the wearer,
like fewer layers on the bottom or a longer length overall.
