Shags, bobs, and now their joint evolution — the shaggy bob — have taken the beauty world (and salon chairs) by storm, and experts predict these hair trends aren’t going anywhere. But even as the style continues to skyrocket in popularity, you might be wondering how exactly to style the new ‘do. As it turns out, there is a wide range of shaggy bob hairstyles to wear since the cut has so much versatility.
“The shaggy bob is a haircut with asymmetrical chopped ends and lots of texture,” Nick Stenson, celebrity hairstylist, artistic director at Matrix, and senior vice president of store and services operations at Ulta Beauty, tells Bustle. “It’s a great low-maintenance style for those who want a relaxed, lived-in look that’s also versatile.” The changeability and texture essentially mean it comes with its own built-in style: Leaving your hair “messy” or letting it do its own thing comes across as intentional in the world of shaggy bobs. And that’s a key part of its allure.
Of course, it’s always nice to have some extra inspo on hand, so Bustle spoke with the experts to get their top recommended shaggy bob hairstyle ideas.
