Anybody heard of a "gyspy" haircut?
Posted: Friday, August 19, 2005 8:09:17 PM
I had a new cleint today come in and she wanted a "gyspy" haircut. I have never heard of this cut before. She said it is a pixie cut but longer. MUCH LONGER her hair was past her waist. So i just layered it until i figure out what she is talking about. Someone PLEASE help me!

The 'gypsy shag' is nothing more than a layered haircut without a perimeter shape cut into it.

the gypsy was popular in the 70s and early 80s.  It is kinda like a lioness and shag combined, but very fringy and wispy

Gypsy or Lift Cutt
Posted: Sunday, December 11, 2005 9:33:18 AM

  I did so many Gipsy cuts in the 80's it would make your head spin . Farrah Fawcett would be a good description . Technically we used to refer to this cut as a lift cut. Basically you would pull all the hair straight up and cut a horizontal line straight across it . It was at this time that the inversion technique of hanging the client upside down and cutting there hair wall it was hanging was invented , although this method ( of hanging the client upside down ) didn't really take off , ( gee , I wonder why ) it did get the hair stylist that invented it some immediate recognition .

The cut in the above link isn't a real gyspy.  To cut a gypsy all you do is a 180 degree cut .  It's v!ery easy and looks great

correct me if i'm wrong.  BUT,  if I recall the hair around the nape will be 2 times longer than the hair at the apex of the head.

Like the pony tail cut at the top of the head.
