The scene shag haircut

It’s no secret that the shag haircut is hot-to-trot at the moment. And with a flock of ultra-cool trendsetters all opting for this rocker-chick cut, you might feel super tempted to join their ranks.

But before you skip off to the salon, let us first introduce the hairstyle that’s become our new obsession: the short scene hair shag. We adore this bold twist on the trend, featuring shorter sweeping bangs and a minty green hair hue that’s giving us serious mane envy! Credit: @hallucineon

Editor’s tip: The key to styling this quirky shag cut, is to accentuate the layers and bring out the natural texture of your hair. And since the shag is all about choppy texture, you’ll want to try scrunching a couple of pumps of the VO5 Volume Mousse into damp hair before blow-drying.

The chin length bob

The French bob and scene hair aren’t often associated with one another. In fact, these haircuts are complete opposites, right? Wrong! Because the 2 go hand in hand with this fashion-forward chin length haircut. Adapting the classic bob to include a set of long side-swept bangs and a soft, metallic hue, this ‘do is chic yet fierce all in one. Credit: @beautsoup

Editor’s tip: If your mane tends to fall on the finer side, be sure to stock up on the Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray. It’s specially formulated to help maximise volume, body and bounce to thin, limp locks. What more could a girl want?

The ombre lob

Looking for subtler short scene haircuts? If you can’t bear to part ways with your long locks and want a wearable hair colour too, opting for an on-trend long bob with ombre highlights is your next best option. Why? Lobs are the ideal go-between length for short hair newbies, meaning you’ll still be able to rock many of the same hairstyles as you would with longer strands. Credit: @lisa.hates.you
