Full-Fringe Wolf Cut
The more volume you decide to give to your wolf cut, the more distinctive your fringe should be to keep the balance. Thus, a full fringe along with cropped shoulder-length wolf cut will visually narrow the face especially flattering girls with round face shapes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Wolf cut and mullet the same?
No, not really.
The wolf cut does borrow some elements from the mullet but they’re definitely not the same. Mullet dates back to ancient times and comes from the Western culture, while the wolf cut started much later in Asia. This new mullet-like look was popularised by K-pop idols in the late 2010s and was equally adopted by men and women.
If compare a mullet to a wolf cut, the latter is more versatile, it’s friendly for more hair textures.
While a mullet features “business at the front, party at the back”, a wolf cut is all about the party and layers everywhere.
Why is a wolf cut called a Wolf cut?
Probably, the wolf cut takes its features and the name from the wild and untamed look of a real wolf. The shaggy layers of the cut slightly resemble the fur of a wolf.
Popular with both genders, the wolf cut has a shape that is so similar to the look of that real lonely grey predator.
Are Wolf cuts hard to maintain?
In the world of sustainable fashion, eco-friendly and user-friendly tendencies, a wolf cut would hardly ever become the hottest TikTok trend if it was too hard to get and maintain.
Modern fashion keeps striving for comfort on the edge with a retro vibe.
Of course, we can hardly call a wolf cut an effortless to maintain kind of style. It does require a daily touch-up investment into the look, but it has nothing to do with some huge and sophisticated ritual.
So, all you need to maintain the look is to make sure it’s texturized enough using the texturizing products every time you feel like the layers are falling flat. And also, add extra volume with a round brush when blow-drying your hair after washing it. Of course, you can go further and deeper into the styling on some special occasions, but there is no point doing it on a daily basis.
Will the wolf cut look good on me?
Well, probably, the answer is all about attitude.
The trendy wolf hairstyle will probably work for you if you’re up to experiments with retro images, into the mixture of styles, and all that fun. The majority of the wolf cut adopters are active TikTok and Instagram users under 25, but the stylists predict that this trend will break all the age limitations in the near future.
If you’re worried if you’ll be able to wear a wolf cut with some specific hair texture, relax. It works on most hair types and textures. Obviously, the layers and volume look different on different types but they work anyway.
The only case when you should be really thoughtful before getting a wolf cut is if your hair is very fine and doesn’t maintain shape at all.
This hairstyle will work wonders for girls with round and square face shapes. Thanks to the active bangs and layers, the face visually looks more harmonious and narrow.
You can also visually soften the broad cheekbones if you add the layers framing the face.
For soft and smooth hair, opt for lightweight variations of a wolf cut with less intensive layering.
If you want to get an elegant and smart hairstyle image, ask your barber to make big but thin layers that graduate smoothly.
And, finally, a Korean wolf cut in its classic interpretation won’t look win-win if your hair looks unhealthy, too fine, and thin. In this case, we’d recommend opting for a classic one-level crop and focusing on the health of your locks instead.
Who Should Go For A Wolf Cut?
While the whole wolf cut thing is hyping and the retro aesthetic of the 70s hairstyles and makeup is everywhere, you should create a wolf hairdo if you’re a fan. Women with curls can just wear it, women with straight hair need some styling first, of course.
But, generally talking, there are lots of means and ways to personalize and adjust this trend: for example, by adding a side-swept bang, or curtain bangs, or an extremely short edgy fringe.
And despite this look has gone viral among teens first, today, there are much more stories a wolf cut tells. It looks good on dyed hair with natural roots giving extra fluffy full volume around the top effortlessly; it can work as a transition hairstyle to grow out a mullet; it will frame the face in a flattering way.
Is A Wolf Cut Pricey?
The price can vary from $80 to $120 for most of the styles you’ve seen in our gallery (the price includes the simple cut and styling/blow-drying.)
The cut itself requires specific skills since the layers should be done in the right way and at the right angle so that they are simple to style afterward. This is one thing you should bear in mind when choosing a hairstylist.
The 2024 trends have revived pop-punk music, DIY hair, and angsty retro nostalgia. Well, it’s not actually a surprise that such a unique and authentic hairstyle as a wolf haircut has got viral this year too.
This hairdo is a mixture of a mullet from the ‘60s-’80s and the early 2000s teenage emo punk details. On top of that, the wolf haircut grabs curtain bangs and shortened fringe variations so that almost every fan of creative images could rock it.
This style shouts out: no matter if you have straight or curly hair, if it’s long, short, thick, or thin, a wolf hairdo has something to offer you! A bunch of choppy face-framing layers borrowed from a shag, and shorter in the front longer in the back silhouette taken from a mullet.
If you’re searching for a hair touch-up to stand out this season, just look no more.
