What is a Wolf Cut Hairstyle?

What Is A Wolf Cut Hairstyle?

While the name itself may sound almost feral, the relaxed execution allows the bold to pull off a wolf cut with ease. The staple of this style is choppy, shaggy layers with a mullet-esque fringe at the front. Expect dishevelled volume at the top which diminishes at the lengths. A true effortlessly-cool-skater-chic look. 

The Ultimate Low Maintenance Hairstyle

The real beauty of the wolf cut is that the maintenance is not dissimilar to any wild animal’s grooming regime. Simply roll out of bed, rough up your hair manually and maybe mist in some texturiser if you’re really dressing up. While variations of this low maintenance hair style work with almost any hair type and length, don’t expect effortless, messy volume if your hair is naturally straight. For extra untamed volume, opt for a set of Clip-In Double Weft Hair Extensions to give your hair a really wild look.

Origin of the Wolf Cut

So where did all this untamed excitement begin? Rewind to the Disco Era, the riotous dawn of the mullet to the 70s scene. Coined a men’s style before it was infused with a healthy dose of androgyny. Thank Bowie’s stage-persona Ziggy Stardust, an androgenous alien rock star who came to earth to warn us of impending apocalyptic disaster... Seems like we owe Ziggy more than just our wolf hair.

636M views and counting. TikTok trendsetters are the Little Red Riding Hoods of this story. The big bad wolf (cut) can be ingeniously achieved in the comfort of your own home, just pull the hair into a ponytail and hack it off at an angle. We told you it was effortless. Thousands of TikTokkers are taking to their screens to attempt this lockdown approved DIY method, with varying levels of success…

Billie Eilish cried wolf. How could we not mention her recent transformation into a hybrid wolf x blonde bombshell mix? Rocking lengthy side swept bangs with choppy layers, Billie makes this particular cut look as effortlessly chic as she is. Other wolfy-Western-women include Miley Cyrus, Debby Ryan and Bretman Rock. Seems like everyone’s feeling a little feral after lockdown.  

While hacking your hair off in a ponytail may seem daunting for some, those who know the secrets of hair extensions aren’t fussing. So how does this DIY haircut work? Simply attach your full head hair extensions as usual and pull your hair into a ponytail. With your human hair ponytail extensions up, cut the ponytail at a diagonal angle. This method will create shaggy layers as the hair is bunching from multiple areas on your head. If you’re bold enough to try this trend however, we suggest taking the time to properly research online and investing in a decent pair of scissors. Remember, if your hair is curly there’s usually more room for error. If at all in doubt just head to your local hairdresser. Don’t worry, you’re still just as bold whoever’s cutting your hair!

While the wolf cut is certainly versatile, your hair type and length will dictate how best to style your new feral hairdo. Wolf cuts work best with thick, curly, or wavy hair, as these tend to hold the wild volume with the least maintenance. Shaggy layers may weigh down fine hair, so shorter cuts are recommended by stylists. Trim the hair every 8 weeks or so depending on length to keep the layers short and bouncy. Styling-wise, use a large-barrel curling wand if your hair is naturally straight or flat. Dry shampoos and texturing sprays are also great for adding volume. 

Wolf Cut With Deep Mullet

Debby Ryan | @debbyryan 

If you’re swinging more towards the mullet element of the wolf cut, try a Wolf Cut with Deep Mullet. Beautifully exhibited by Debby Ryan who styles her warm brown hair in an ear-to-ear fringe. 

Wolf cuts work fantastically with curly hair. Cierra Nia shows off her shorter, subtle wolf cut with stacked curls on the top.

For ultra-wildness, try this extreme variation. Opt for voluminous short choppy layers around the crown which taper off exceptionally at the lengths.  

Short hair, don’t care! Style shorter locks by exaggerating the flick at the bottom.

Soft Wolf Cut

Cathy Wolf | @cathywolf

For a subtler look, without reducing the wolfiness, try a softer variation. You can apply the soft look to any hair length, just lengthen the layers! 

So, Ziggy, take your screwed-up eyes and screwed down hairdo. We hope the wolf cut is here to stay after all the chaos it’s caused. Whether you’re a lone wolf or a pack animal, we’re sure this effortless hairstyle will keep you looking effortlessly cool and chic for years to come… But grandma, what big hair you have!
