The textured soft waves are slightly more defined than the traditional soft waves and to achieve soft waves in your hair, you would take a curling iron and curl only the middle sections of the hair while leaving the remainder of your hair straight.

21st Century Shag
The shag was first worn by men and women in the 1970’s and early 80’s and traditionally the shag would be styled with short layers near the sides and back and longer layers towards the front. The sides of the hair shouldn’t be too short and instead you want to have some length for authentic shag. The shag should also look a little messy rather than perfect. The shag is suitable for younger and older women, and it’s not hard to maintain. To give the shag an edgy look, include some bangs near the front.
