CANVAS, a hair salon in Mebane, offers shag haircuts, including the rock ‘n’ roll shag and the classic shag.
This textured haircut emphasizes a choppy, “I woke up like this” style, and looks artsy and hip, giving the sense that your hair was styled after a long night of interesting activities. For a more feminine, romantic feel, go with the classic shag haircut.
The shag hairstyle was originally created by Paul McGregor for Jane Fonda. The haircut shot to fame when she appeared with it in the film ‘Klute’ in 1971 as the character Bree Daniels. It was choppy, feathered and ideally suited to both Jane Fonda and her character. Jane Fonda had previously worn her hair long and blonde, so it was a complete transformation that she reportedly said did a lot for her self-esteem.
The rock ‘n’ roll shag is popularized by the legendary singer Siouxsie Sioux, the lead singer of Siouxsie and the Banshees, and also helped to make the haircut famous. Her punk rock-style take on the 70s shag cut inspired a generation and her haircut today is very similar. Souixsie has influenced a number of other bands throughout musical history, and her look also helped to kick off the punk fashion trend in the 70s.
