This year’s hottest new hairstyle is the Gen Z-approved shag called the “wolf cut” — a whimsical, undone take on the mullet that you’ve no doubt already seen all over TikTok or IG. You’ll know a wolf cut when you see one, as it’s characterized by its fluffy crown and tapered, wispy strands. With ‘70s trends making a comeback, it’s no surprise that the cut is everywhere again. Made popular by David Bowie’s alter ego Ziggy Stardust, the androgynous look gives the middle finger to gender norms and invites individuality.

Its resurgence is said to have started in South Korean hair salons, taking off in popularity among teens on TikTok. The disheveled style tempts people to do the chop themselves, with users all over the platform taking on the one-minute DIY mullet challenge with some bravery and a pair of scissors. If you’d rather leave it to the pros, here’s some wolf cut hair inspiration from 10 celebs and influencers to share with your hair stylist.

Perhaps one of the first celebs to rock the look, Miley transitioned her full-out mullet into the trendy wolf cut by letting it grow out over time. Considering Cyrus takes her musical influences from the ‘70s and ‘80s, it’s no surprise she’d rock a cut from that era.

Barbie’s disheveled cut is very much channeling her character Kat from Euphoria. Her thinned out version of the cut toes the line between mullet and wolf cut. Paired with dangerously sharped winged liner, her look oozes ‘bad girl,’ but still manages to be delicate and pretty.
