The wolf cut is a short, edgy haircut that is gaining popularity among women of all ages. It is characterized by its uneven layers and choppy ends, which give it a tousled, wild look. Oh, and the wolf cut can be styled in any which way you like. You can wear it straight, curly, textured or even in a messy braid. With its uber-cool appeal, the short wolf cut is the perfect hairstyle to embrace your inner wild side. 

While it is a larger version of the mullet, the wolf cut hair is also said to be similar to the shag haircut, which is also characterised by its uneven layers and choppy ends. However, the wolf cut is typically shorter than the shag haircut and has a more defined, tapered shape. The shag haircut can also be more layered, with wispy ends. But both can be styled in a variety of ways which is the real winning highlight here which means both styles suit everyone no matter their face shape or hair type.

The wolf cut can look good on all hair types, but it is especially flattering on fine hair because it adds volume and texture. It can also be a good choice for curly hair, as it helps to define the curls and add a touch of wildness. If you have thick hair, a wolf cut long hair can help to thin it out and create a more manageable style. Ultimately, the best way to know if a wolf cut will look good on you is to try it out!

There are a few different types of wolf cuts, each with its own unique look and feel. 

The classic wolf cut hair is characterized by its blunt, choppy ends and a deep side part. This style is the typical edgy look that you can see everywhere and can be easily customized to suit your individual needs. 

The graduated wolf cut is a more subtle take on the trend. It features longer layers that gradually get shorter towards the ends, creating a more blended look. This style is perfect for those who want a less high-maintenance wolf cut. 

The textured wolf cut is all about the layers. This style features lots of choppy, textured and short layers that give the hair a more voluminous and lived-in look. It's perfect for those who want a short wolf cut that is full of personality. 

The slim Korean wolf cut is a bold and edgy style that features short choppy bangs, optional hime layers and choppy edges that taper down, almost like a mullet. It is perfect for those who want a trendy low-maintenance cut while also calling attention to their hair. 


How to Style a Wolf Cut

FAQs on Wolf Cut

And as promised, there are several ways to style a wolf cut hairstyle, depending on what you like. 

For a more polished look, blow dry your hair in the direction you want it to lay, and then use a round brush to create volume at the roots. You can also use a texturizing spray to add some grit and definition.  

For a more lived-in wolf cut hairstyle, air dry your hair or use a diffuser to dry it. Then, tousle your hair with your fingers to create a more natural, textured look. But no matter what heating tool you use, whether it is a blow dryer or a diffuser, don’t forget to protect your hair. The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray will protect your hair from heat damage while styling, and it will also help to give your hair a smooth, shiny finish all with the help of argan oil. It can handle up to 230°C, so you can use it on literally any heat styling tool. It also doubles up as a hair spray, hair SPF and frizz controller! 

If you want to add some extra oomph to a short wolf cut, try styling it with a curling iron or a straightener. Curling your hair will give it a more voluminous and bouncy look while straightening it will create a sleeker, more polished look. To get that salon-like gloss, we love the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Serum. This serum will help to control frizz and flyaways while also adding shine and definition to your hair. And the best part is that it is lightweight and non-greasy so even if you have fine hair. And like the rest of its keratin range, this one has argan oil too to nourish and strengthen your hair. 

No matter how you style it, the wolf cut hair is a versatile style that can be tailored to suit your individual needs and preferences. So experiment with different styling techniques to find the look that's perfect for you.

Q1. Why is wolf cut so popular? 

With the return of popular hairstyles from the '70s and '80s, it’s no surprise that the wolf cut is making a comeback as well. Originated in South Korea and later popularized by David Bowie who took inspiration from Kansai Yamamoto, and more recently by Billie Eilish and K-pop idols, the wolf cut hairstyle is a bold and androgynous style that can give anyone a new lease on their look.  

Q2. What face shape suits wolf cut? 

The wolf cut hairstyle can give the illusion of length to a round face. If you have a square face, it can help to add a touch of softness and dimension. And if you have an oval face, it can accentuate your natural features.  

Q3. Is wolf cut high maintenance? 

It depends on the individual's hair type and styling preferences. A wolf cut will require some styling to maintain its shape, but it is not as high-maintenance as some other hairstyles. With proper care, a wolf cut can last for several months without needing to be trimmed.
