Remember the shag hairstyles from the 80s? Rockstars like Pat Benatar and Joan Jett were famously known for sporting the shaggy hairstyles back in the day.
Here is our list of shaggy hairstyles for women over 50 with fine hair.
Shaggy hairstyles are making a comeback (did they ever go away?) and we are here for it. There are several ways to wear the shaggy hairstyle – from short to long and everything in between.
What describes the shaggy hairstyle best is a choppy and layered style best worn messy-looking. Shaggy hairstyles look great on most face shapes and hair colors.
You may have shied away from the shaggy hairstyle in the past because you have fine hair. Understandably, layers can make your hair look even thinner than it really is. Layers should not be cut with feathering scissors when you have fine hair.
You can use some styling products that help thicken the hair and give volume and fullness to make your shaggy haircut look its best. Here are our favorite products for fine hair.
Add some natural curls or waves to your shaggy haircut to add texture and make it look fuller. An easy way to achieve this look is by using a diffuser on your blow dryer while you scrunch your hair dry.
Fashioning a side part and cutting a longish curtain bang can add some top volume to your shaggy haircut. Add a texturizing spray or gel that is non-oily.
You can cut a shaggy style into a bob cut if you have fine hair. The blunt bottom will add some natural fullness to the style.
Long hair is surprisingly less maintenance than short hair. A long shaggy hairstyle is perfect for a natural wash-and-go look. Add some texturizing spray when your hair is dry to add more texture.
You can also blow dry your shaggy hairstyle and flip the ends to create a less “messy look” style. Dab on some anti-frizz product to help keep the flyaways away.
