The shag is coming back, but in a more modern shape, said longtime local hair stylist Anne Hutchins.
“It’s not as full as Farrah Fawcett’s cut and not as thin as a gypsy shag,” said Hutchins, referring to the cuts that reached their peaks of trendiness in the 1970s. “We’re modifying them and going in between.”
Hutchins, who owns Hair & Body Works in Carolina Beach, said the razor approach, however, doesn’t work for everyone. Using a razor for women with curly hair, for example, might cause the curls to look frizzier and would fare better with a texturizing cut.
“The shag’s coming back, no doubt,” she said. “All the cuts come back around.”
