The mushroom haircut (a.k.a. the bowl cut) is making a major comeback. The mushroom hairstyle is forswearing its traditional stiff and sleek look for now. Hairstyles that are packed with texture are the It Girl look of the season and the modern mushroom haircut is one of them.
If you think that mushroom-cut hair is solely the territory of women, think again. Men have been sporting this look for many years. Want to get in on this flawlessly styled ‘do? Read on to learn more about how to style the mushroom hair cut.
How to Style a Mushroom Haircut
Step 1: Start with clean hair.
Wash hair with a volumizing hair care system to infuse your mushroom hairstyle with body and volume. Start by washing hair with Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Shampoo, then follow up with Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Conditioner.
Step 2: Pile on the texture.
To enhance texture while styling short mushroom hairstyles, you can opt for liberally applying a product like Bed Head By TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray throughout your hair.
Step 3: Rough-dry.
Rough-dry your mushroom hairstyle by using a blowdryer with the concentration nozzle attached. As you dry, use your hand to lift your hair at the roots, and your fingers to roughly tousle your strands. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, use a round brush to help straighten your texture first.
Step 4: Add (barely there) curls.
Use a one-inch curling iron to create loose, chunky curls. Don’t bother going for perfectly-done ringlets!
Step 5: Scrunch and finish.
Scrunch your ends to create full, piecey waves throughout your mushroom hairstyle.
10 Ways to Wear a Mushroom Haircut
1. Intentional Frizz
While most of us spend a lot of time trying to avoid frizz, you can always take a more high fashion, avant-garde approach and choose an intentionally frizzy look. We love how this trend works with a short haircut in particular.
2. Messy and Edgy
We love the messy and edgy effect of this air-dried texture. Simply wash your hair and go!
This effect really depends on your stylist. When you head to the salon, talk to your hairstylist about using a point cutting technique to achieve these feathered edges.
4. Sharp Edges
This blunt cut is all the way on the other side of the spectrum! We love the sharp edges for a clean and neat look.
5. Stick Straight
Take it a step in the sleek direction with this stick-straight style.
6. Cropped Bangs
Take the style in a sweeter direction with the easy addition of cropped bangs.

Have some fun with your color and your cut by opting for this neon blue hair color.
8. Sleek and Shiny
Give your mushroom cut some stronghold and a dose of shine by finishing your style with a mist of Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Hair Spray.
The mushroom haircut is the perfect opportunity to rock that 90s reminiscent punk rock trend.
Give your fresh cut some depth and dimension by playing with your color, too!
