So, what exactly is the hush cut? Imagine a blend of delicate layers, artfully constructed to frame the face and enhance one’s natural features, usually paired with a wispy bang or curtain bangs.

The artistic layering of this haircut ensures movement and texture, without adding extra weight.

One of the most notable aspects of the hush cut is that it emphasizes the natural wave and shape of your hair, making styling effortless. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance yet super stylish and trendy hairstyle, this one is for you. Plus, it’s a great way to try out having a fringe.

Hush Cut Hair Types

Despite being characterized by quite dramatic layers, this haircut works on almost any face type. Fine hair can be manipulated to achieve more volume and body, whereas if you have thicker hair your strands will naturally have some oomph. 

Either way, we always to recommend bringing an inspiration picture to the salon so your stylist can see exactly what you have in mind. This will help them cut your hair in a way that will work with your natural hair texture and wok with your strands rather than against them.
