Pinterest Hair Inspiration
Everyone loves a good hair inspiration post, make-up tutorials and hours flipping through Pinterest boards. I once filled every wall in my room with tear sheets from every fashion magazine I could afford. Every salon I have ever owned has had an inspirational wall defining fashion, hair or whatever influenced my style at the moment.
In my efforts to begin a blog for the website, I thought what better than sharing hair inspiration weekly. My disclaimer is I search Pinterest way too much. I’ll share a post weekly with pins of hairstyles that inspire me as a hairdresser.
Take a stool at a Barnes and Noble on a Sunday afternoon. Grab a coffee and a stack of fashion magazines and you will see the shag making a presence. If the names Rod Stewart, and Joan Jett don’t ring a bell maybe the shag is new for you. Are you the client that say’s I want layers but long layers? The shag may not be the haircut for you.
The shag is a loose, lived in haircut with soft internal layers. A low maintenance haircut that creates volume and movement. Textured ends of the hair with shorter layering in the crown help create a rock n roll look. The shag is ideal for all hair types and looks best with natural highlighting to bring out the layers.
If you’re looking for more movement in the crown of your hair try asking for more layering next visit to the salon. Adding a long bang can play up your cheekbones while making fine hair seem fuller around the face. Leave the bangs to curtain just below brow just grazing the eyes.
The shag is a 70’s inspired look and creates freedom from over styling the hair. Adding curls or waves will help with adding more texture and movement to the look. It’s all about the creative expression with this haircut. Now go and explore Pinterest and see if the modern shag might be a choice for you. If so Book in for a consultation with me and I’ll help you decide.
I hope you liked this article and will continue to follow the weekly hair inspiration. I will continue to post what inspires me and where I see hair going in fashion. These are my interpretations no one else’s.
