So we’ve already been obsessing over 2021’s fave hair trends so far – we’re talking money-piece highlights, vanilla blonde, and bubble braids (as a shameless bandwagon-hopper, I’ve personally tried all three). Thanks to TikTok though, there’s a new trend on the block, and it’s easily the most ‘cool-girl’ style we’ve seen this year.
The #wolfcut trend on TikTok (which currently has 436.3 million views), sees brave users tie their hair in a high pony at the top of their head, then chop the end of the ponytail off bluntly, usually using a pair of kitchen scissors. Chaotic, I know. The end result is kind of a cross between a classic shag, and a modern mullet. Known as the wolf-cut, presumably because of it’s kinda wild appearance, it’s easy to see why this trend is everywhere right now. It gives us effortlessly cool, serious rocker vibes, and we’re totally here for it.
Now we’re not suggesting you take the DIY ‘kitchen scissors’ approach, that would be hugely irresponsible (and the results definitely vary), but the style itself is definitely worth considering for your next hairstyle. Ask your hairstylist for a textured cut, shorter at the front and longer at the back. It’s all about the volume, texture and layers, and it can be more shaggy or mullet-y, depending on your preference. It’s usually worn with a fringe – anything goes, from baby bangs or a full textured fringe to long shaggy curtain bangs. Need some inspo to show your stylist? Look no further.
In the words of TikTokers everywhere: ‘I’m not gonna do it, girl… I’m just thinkin’ bout it…’
