Wolf Cut Hair Ideas for an Edgy, New Look!

Get to know the haircut that's been trending on TikTok!

Love layered haircuts? Try the wolf cut hair. It has long hair at the back and choppy layers at the sides. It combines the characteristics of a shag haircut and the silhouette of a mullet.

A wolf cut often has bangs and goes up to your shoulders, but you can also rock it on long hair. The key is defining your layers and styling them to create a wildly textured ‘do.

Ready to rock this trend? Check out these wolf cut hairstyles we’ve rounded up for you.

Wolf Cut Hair Ideas We Love

1. Wolf Cut Hair With Wispy Bangs

Make your fringe wispy to match the tousled look of your layers. Ditch the comb and style your bangs with your fingers to style your hair this way.

Bottle of Tresemme Detox & Nourish Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Nail any haircut or hairstyle by starting with clean and nourished hair. We recommend using TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Shampoo. It has green tea extract which is known for its antioxidant properties and Hawaiian ginger root extract which soothes and moisturizes. It also has tea tree oil which has antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. This shampoo gently cleanses and detoxifies your hair, leaving it fresh, smooth, and healthy. 

TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Serum Conditioner

After shampooing, use TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Serum Conditioner. It provides lightweight conditioning to keep your hair nourished and smooth without weighing it down. 

2. ’90s Pigtails

Bring on the nostalgia by tying the upper section of your hair in ’90s half-up pigtails. This wolf cut hairstyle creates a youthful look while showcasing your hair’s texture and choppy layers.

3. Long Layers

Got face-framing layers? Scrunch your hair to give it texture and create a messy-chic look. It’s also a clever way to keep thin hair from looking flat and limp. You can also add light or medium brown highlights to make your layers more defined.

4. Wolf Cut Hair With Hat

Give your wolf haircut a street-chic vibe by putting on a hat. Part your fringe at the center and finger-comb them towards the sides to create curtain bangs.

5. Flipped-Out Ends

Styling your wolf cut hair this way gives it a retro vibe. To do this, use a straightening iron, clamp a section of your hair, and iron the tips outwards to form a J-shape. Do this on all sections of your hair. Don’t worry if the shape of the tips is not uniform; the mess makes this hairstyle edgy.

Tub of Dove Advanced Keratin Treatment Mask

Editor’s tip: Did you know that brushing and styling can damage your hair? Keep your hair protected with Dove Advanced Keratin Mask. It’s boosted with Kera-Shield, which consists of a potent shot of keratin and a nourishing layer of vitamins and niacinamide. This treatment mask targets damaged spots and protects your hair from the weakening effects of styling. Use it weekly to get the best results. 

6. Balayage

For those who want to change up their wolf cut, giving it a balayage color offers a fresh and exciting option. This unique ‘do combines layers and seamless color blending for an effortless look.

TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Boost Hold Hairspray

Editor’s tip: Our favorite styling hack is to add big waves with a curling wand and use a texturizing spray like the TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Boost Hold Hairspray for added depth and dimension. This hairspray gives your locks an all-day hold while maintaining that voluminous bounce! 

7. Multi-Layer Wolf Cut Hair

Thin hair often leaves people feeling limited in their styling options, but the multi-layer wolf cut and curtain bangs have emerged as a popular solution. Multiple layers add texture and movement to thin locks, so they’re worth considering for those seeking a fresh, face-framing look that adds volume.

8. The Ponytail

Wanna switch up your wolf cut? Try a cool ponytail and let your bangs do the talking. This easy style makes your edgy cut work for any vibe, from chill hangouts to fancy events.

TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Level 2 Smooth Hold

Editor’s Tip: To achieve the perfect ‘do, sweep your hair into a high or low ponytail, and use a light-hold hairspray or texturizing spray to keep your bangs in place. We love the TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Smooth Hold Hairspray that gives your locks an invisible hold and sleekness that lasts.

9. Big Waves

Add some drama and sleekness to your wolf cut by creating big, luxurious waves! To achieve this, use a large barrel curling iron or even some overnight heatless curlers, and finish off with a spray for added volume.
