Say hello to the wolf cut…the viral hair trend of the moment that has completely taken over social media. As the name implies, the wolf cut is pretty wild. Short face-framing layers create a shaggy rock star aesthetic that would make Joan Jett and David Bowie proud. It’s part mullet, part shag cut, and fully awesome.
The edgy cut is rumored to have originated in South Korea’s K-pop scene, and even some celebs began to jump on the trend a couple of months back (I see you, Billie Eilish). This sparked a wave of wolf cuts around the globe and even hundreds of DIY videos online showing how to do the cut on yourself by hacking off a vertical ponytail (I don’t recommend going that route).
Here are a few legendary wolf cuts from some of my favorite Instagrammers:
The fierce look is not for the faint of heart and requires major confidence to pull off, which makes me love to see girls rocking the style even more. So, what do you think? Will you be rocking the wolf cut this fall?
