The Shaggy haircut , The Choppy layers

"The New Shag" article (in the Vogue India June 2011 issue) provoked me to do this to myself. I have been thinking of getting a haircut. But Freja Beha's photo with the shag which has a rock n roll feel to it just drove me over the edge. She walked the runway last year with this new hairstyle.

Out came my scissors and hairbands, I opened my YouTube channel and searched for a tutorial. I found this amazingly easy video and followed it. I had once done my own bangs before so I was not shaky. I find a cathartic pleasure in chopping of my own hair. It's like taking control. Here is the video

You can wear the shag as you like. The length depends on you. I have thin hair so I wasn't going to use the razor technique. In a salon someone once did it and the result was not good. Anyway I have changed to a better salon now thanks to my best friend. I will wear my layers messy. The shag is the ultimate do nothing haircut and brings in a lot of edge depending on its length and styling. I cut it according to what I thought would look good on my round face.
