If TikTok has taught us anything about hair, it’s that the more bold and daring, the better. “This look is trending because it’s a gender-neutral style and it’s very edgy, artistic, and creative,” Hurtado tells Glamour. “It’s like having short and long hair at the same time.” Which makes it an option if you’re not ready to chop off your length but want to test out a different look, she adds.
“This cut is also perfect if you want to experiment with color for an extra bold playful style and show off your personality,” she says.
Feeling inspired? To ask for the jellyfish haircut, Hurtado suggests asking your stylist for short, rounded layers on top, while maintaining your length. As always, it’s recommended you bring photos for reference.
Once you have your jellyfish cut, maintenance is easy. “The most maintenance for this style is cleaning up the front and sides,” Williams assert. “The back ‘legs’ can grow as long as you’d like!”
Styling is also super simple. Since the cut is so striking on its own, it doesn’t require much to make a statement. That said, Williams suggests applying texture paste all over to amp up the style.
Hurtado echoes this, advising that you scrunch it up with your hands and fingers, then spray texturizing and thickening spray for some extra fluff. If you want your layers to flip out more, however, she suggests using a small round brush, a small curling iron, or a hot brush to make them pop.
