Yes, we’re aware: the shag haircut isn’t exactly new. The choppy, layered hair look – typically styled with tons of texture – was popularized back in the 1970s, but it has since made a huge comeback, especially among our favorite celebrities. However, this new version is a fresh take on the trend.

What you’re seeing on seemingly every A-lister from Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez to Billie Eilish isn’t what you’d see decades ago. The updated version of the shag is what hairstylist Devin Toth says is the coolest haircut trend of the year, and we totally see why.

Devin Toth is a hairstylist at Salon SCK.

“The two popular shag styles will be ultra curly, ultra layered, and then straight with long curtain bangs that sweep,” Toth tells PS. “The curly shag is very round with a pure release of texture. It will be a seamless transition from bangs to short layers to long layers to bottom length. The straight shag can be styled however you want, but it generally has longer layers with the focus of the style being the bold curtain bangs – sweeping but not fully connected to the rest of the style.”
