Messy Shags & Choppy Layers

Lisa Rinna, Meg Ryan, Sharon Stone, Cloris Leachman, and many other red carpet beauties have donned a messy shag or choppy layers - styled haircut. The fun thing about women's messy hairdo's or choppy layers is the sheer simplicity (for most styles) when it comes to styling as well as the time it takes to achieve the appealing look of controlled chaos. Messy shags and choppy layered short hairstyles for women can look edgy or soft depending on the desired cut and look. This strong cut is also versatile enough (most often) to be teased, curled, flat ironed or simply blow dried, so the potential for a different look is great.
