Joan Jett’s Hairstylist’s Tips On How To Get A Shag

Joan Jett’s hairstylist, Sally Hershberger, shares tips on how to get a shag.

What is a shag?
SH: “A shag is really any layered cut. From longer pieces like Gisele, to something choppier like Joan’s hair.”

Why is it so popular?
SH: It’s a very versatile style that can work with many different hair types.”

What do you ask your stylist for if you want a shag?

SH: “If you want to take the look in a more severe direction, ask for a shorter style that has lots of layers of all lengths for a choppy, rockstar look. A more subtle version would be something a little less drastic – longer, softer layers.”

How do you style a shag?
SH: “The key to a great shag is using the right products. Most women have layers in their hair but, until my Shagg line, there was never a line of products designed to define and enhance their layers. To really make the most of layers, use lightweight, residue-free formulas so your layers aren’t weighed down.”

Sally’s styling tips:
1) First, rough, dry hair.
2) Use Sally’s Shagg Spray on dry hair and blast with a blow dryer.
3) Shape with your hands, which is much easier than using a brush to create texture and pieciness, for a great messy, sexy look in seconds.
4) To refresh the look, give the style a few quick additional spritzes.
5) Further define your layers with a gel. Sally uses her Shagg Rocks Liquid Gel to create further separation. Just pull a little through the hair using your hands.

The Runaways, starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning, hits theaters on March 19.
