Of course, the shag isn’t just for one hair type...

The Curly Shag

TikTok constantly proves that there is more than one way to rock a hairstyle. As a result, the curly shag is growing in popularity. An alternative to the round brush, blow-out styling that is often needed to achieve a classic modern shag, the curly shag offers a way for curly-haired girls to sport this new trend.

Curtain Bangs

Looking for an easier way to achieve a vintage look? Then curtain bangs may just be for you. And this year, they can’t seem to stop trending.

Blunt Bangs

The curtain style isn’t the only way to frame a face, of course. However, vids showing blunt bangs and sharp bobs give the wispy curtain bang tutorials a run for their money.

@seagreenehair

LOVE me some blunt bangs 🤤 how do you all feel about focused longer videos versus multi clip transformations? @framar #TeamofTomorrow #bluntbangs

Long Layers

TikTok isn’t only about bold cuts; delicate styles are going viral, too. This season, you’re sure to see dozens of videos featuring luscious long layers and comments that read, “can you do a 360 so I can show my stylist?”

Finger Curls

Curly girls are also trending plenty of looks and styling tips aside from that curly shag. The latest? Finger curls—perfect for achieving a voluminous, bouncy look at just about any length.

The Boys Want In, Too

Girls aren’t the only ones that get to have fun. The boys are showing off their hairstyle trends too. And what’s the next most popular throwback cut after the shag? Its close cousin, the mullet.

@notbretmanrock

Faux mullet is the movement... mullet without the commitment LOL

With all of these styles, it’s challenging to stay what hair trends will go viral next. Needless to say, TikTok and its community of hairstylists and hair enthusiasts are the ones to watch.
