Inspired by the shaggy haircuts that were widely popularized in the 80s and 90s, Roger Molina, Sam Villa ArTeam and Master Stylist at Lunatic Fringe @rogermolinahair, shares his version of a mod shag in this how to.

How To: Mod Shag

  • Start with the fringe (leave long for the mysterious type of client). Cut a guide in the middle and over direct to opposite side to gain length. Build a diagonal line from center to corner of the eye.
  • Same for the face frame. Build a line with diagonal back angles and diagonal cutting lines. Point cut for more texture and use blunt lines for finer hair.
  • Follow the natural elements of the curly texture. Start by applying a light and soft leave-in conditioner like Redken Acidic Perfecting Leave-In Treatment for Damaged Hair on very wet hair.  Brush into ribbons and scrunch to encourage curl. 
  • Air dry for a bit and then use a Sam Villa Light Professional Ionic Hair Dryer and diffuser with Cult + King Style and scrunch. Break up curls with more Style or a light finishing oil like Redken Oil for All.
