Most shaggy cuts require a quick blow dry and raking through the hair with fingers, to enhance the bounce for thin hair. Shaggy hairstyles are versatile, whereby hair is layered to suit the shape of the face and thickness of the hair. These cuts can include short or long bobs, according to Her Interest list of 50 popular, shag hairstyles.
