This 2023, the mullet. The director of the Parisian brand Franck Provost tells us that “although it is a style that has been a trend for months now, this time it allows you to wear the sideburns and neck area longer. The upper part is worn more scaled and weathered and “The bangs are very short, about halfway across the forehead and irregular.”

One of its versions, the wolfcutalso promises to succeed: “It is a soft and glam of the iconic mullet, a layered cut with disconnection between the mid-lengths and ends. As its name indicates, it is inspired by the fur of wolves and, therefore, an untamed, very free and rebellious finish is sought.

It is a style that highlights the natural texture of the hair, so it adapts to all types of hair. The bangs and front contour are worked to frame the face, allowing the cut to be fully personalized, while harmonizing the features. We will opt for midi or long versions for round or square faces, and shorter ones and closer to the shag in the case of oval or narrow faces,” explains Mónica Duque, director of Salón Seensay in Santander.

Also pay attention to curly bedhead: “Wavy and curly textures offer us the perfect base to achieve a ‘just out of bed’ style, very natural and flattering. In this case, we are not looking for very defined curls, but slightly undone and overlapping each other.

It is a look that we can find in all types of lengths, although I especially recommend it in its shorter version, with volume in the upper area and the tighter sides, to achieve an effect that is as sophisticated as it is daring,” says Conchi Arias, director of Curlyhair Fields, in Granada.
