THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A GOOD SHAG.
The past few seasons have seen a slew of models and fashion insiders paying homage to Patti Smith and her signature shag hair cut. Freja Beha Erichsen was the first to take the plunge way back in 2011 but now that runway favourite Mica Arganaraz and perennial IT Girl Alexa Chung have adopted the look there’s no denying, it’s a bona fide trend. Patti wasn’t the only one championing the look, Jane Fonda, Stevie Nicks and Nancy Spungen all loved a good shag, and while Patti maintained her do by taking matters into her own hands, we suggest you leave the scissor work to the professionals. The perfect shag lies in three elements, it’s time to ditch the blunt baseline and embrace a lash grazing fringe and plenty of textured layers. Styling your new mane’s a breeze, a health dose of Kevin Murphy Hair Resort and a blast with your drier will keep you looking like you’ve just stepped out of NYC’s Hotel Chelsea circa 1970!
