25 Edgy Wolf Cut Ideas You Need To Try
What Is A Wolf Cut?
Wolf cut hairstyles are a mix of two popular current haircut trends, aka the shag haircut and the mullet. Both these trending hairstyles feature a mix of layers and bangs. While the mullet is a short haircut, the shag haircut can be short, long, or mid length. When put together, it results in unique wolf haircut looks. Length, fringe, texture, and layering makes any ole head of hair look perfectly tousled and ready to romp the streets of New York (or wherever). This non gendered cut is for those who “get” mullets, but aren’t interested in that level (or bilevel) of commitment.

Why Is Wolf Cut So Popular?
Often paired with a perm for long term texture, the wolf cut is a wild and free style which makes sense, considering the animal it’s named after. It’s got all the messy of a wolf, but all of the elegance, too. Because the wolf cut relies on volume and texture to exaggerate and showcase the layering, this style works great on curly hair. For those with super straight hair, expect some styling required if you’re looking for the “scrunched up” look on the daily. Scissors can do wonders, but they can’t change your hair texture. Even celebs can’t get enough of the wolf haircut style as it gives off a stylish edge that is personalized to suit every hair type, hair texture, and face shape.

How To Maintain A Wolf Cut?
To enhance the look of your wolf cut, focus on a hair care routine that adds volume and prevents frizz. Brush your locks daily. Maintaining a wolf cut starts with smart hair habits. Prevent your strands from tangling by brushing your hair daily. Hairstylists recommend using a round brush, which detangles the hair while adding a volumizing effect. If you’re prone to knots, opt for a short hairstyle or apply a detangling spray to prep your hair and prevent breakage.
Use a leave-in conditioner. Thick hair types, especially those that are curly or wavy, should apply a leave-in conditioner to damp hair ends. Packed with hydrating and moisturizing properties, a leave-in conditioner promotes healthy hair growth and protects the hair follicles from the products and tools used to create the tousled wolf cut hairstyle. If you have fine hair, skip this step in your hair routine, as leave-in conditioners can weigh your hair down.
Trim on a consistent basis. Like a pixie or shag haircut, a wolf hairdo requires routine trims; it’s essential to keep up with your haircuts to preserve the layers and shaggy bangs. Trim short hair every six to eight weeks and long hair every eight to ten weeks. Take a look at the ideas below to get inspired!
