Hair is such a personal part of us. But do you ever get the urge to just chop it all off? Or at least grab the scissors and take chunks out of it? The actual act of lopping sections away (or having your stylist do it) and watching pieces fall to the ground can be cathartic…refreshing…transformative.
Remember, our hair is one place we can take charge in whatever way we want to. And rather than smoothing strands into line and straightening the lot into sleek and perfect order, roughing it up with a mussy, the unruly cut can feel exquisitely defiant. If you’re getting your kicks just thinking about it, you’re likely seeking some rebel texture.
The best part? There’s a bunch of ways you can get there. Rebel texture is a sliding scale. You can dip your toe in with some shaggy layers or hit peak reckless with a truly radical chop. Here are some of our favorite ways to get some rebel texture.
The Jagged Fringe
We love how imperfect these bangs are—longer in the middle with jagged chunks cut out of it. Even if you keep the rest of your hair fairly neat, it still looks a little radical. And although the micro-length fringe is a bit of a commitment, the uneven edges can be chopped straight whenever you fancy.
