The Modern Shag

By Oribe Hair Care (other events)

Tuesday, October 10 2017 9:30 AM 6:00 PM

Our interpretation of the iconic Shag utilizes the razor as a tool to create movement and effortless layers. The bangs are the focal point of this cut, versatile in length and a guide for determining the surrounding layers. Adaptable to personal style, the look can span from soft and feminine to strong and bold.


Bangs varying in lengths from above the eyebrow to the lips
Based on your chosen look, there is versatility in keeping lines strong or soft
While collar bone is ideal, the perimeter length can be left longer
The modern interpretation of today’s Shag is not necessarily as we remember it, leaving flexibility for each interpretation
