Modern Rocker-Chic Shag Cut from L’ANZA Healing Haircare


Modern Rocker-Chic Shag Cut from L’ANZA Healing Haircare

This is the dream customer—cool, chic, bold, rock and roll. And this is the dream haircut for that customer, courtesy of L’ANZA Healing Haircare. It’s the personification of a bold, modern attitude with its swingy layers and notice-me fringe. Here’s how to master the cut for your rockin’ clients.


  • 1

    Start at the fringe; comb hair straight down and cut your first line through the pupil of the eyes, chipping into the hair to create a heavy, choppy line. Repeat sections, working back to the top of the head.

  • 2

    Establish layers around the face by combing the hair forward and cut vertically. Connect the layers to the fringe.

  • 3

    Create internal layers by combing hair upward and cutting, using the length of the face frame and fringe as your guides.

  • 4

    Repeat steps, holding hair outward on a diagonal, and chip the corners.

  • 5

    Place outline at the bottom of the neck using a chipping motion to create a broken, distressed line. Blow dry.

  • 6

    Go back through sections starting at the nape and working from Zone 1 through Zone 3. Using horizontal sections, lift each section away from the head at 45 degrees and chip heavily into each section (3 peaks and valleys), and continue through whole head.
