These days, when we think of shag haircuts, the Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 shows come to mind. But so do rock ‘n’ roll women and famous models, past and present: From Patti Smith circa 1975 to Mica Arganaraz’s tousled curls, the bedhead style is messy, undone, filled with layers and the choppier, the better. The short volume-inducing chop is ideal for those with fine hair and will make masculine features more pronounced, so confidence is key.

At the Marc Jacobs show, Guido Palau used jet-black wigs on all 55 of the models and pre-cut them to ensure that bangs were slightly grazing the eyes and layers framed every catwalker’s face effortlessly. Often razor-cut and complemented by fringe, shag haircuts are the statement-making hair trend of the season. Here are 8 fearless women that famously rocked their own iteration of the punkish style and inspired the revival of the edgy look.
