Break away from the pack, flaunt your edgy wild side, and get howling soon with your own wolf cut hairstyle! You'll be surprised at how low-maintenance and versatile this hot look is!  There are so many versions, and you'll be surprised at how low-maintenance and versatile this hot look is! Keep scrolling to see 21 pics of celebrities and models demonstrating the many ways you can wear a wolf cut.

A wolf haircut style is a hot version of the shag haircut and a mullet. It's a textured cut that’s shorter at the front, usually with a fringe at eyebrow length, and left longer at the back. The wolf cut has shorter choppy layers on the top and longer choppy layers around the sides and back.

A wolf cut usually features shaggy, messy bangs, full or curtain bangs. It emphasizes face-framing layers and rugged texture. As its name suggests, the wolf cut is a little wild, and often is worn with the ears showing (hair hanging in front of, and behind, the ears), as we often see with a “Wolfman” depiction. It's a textured cut that’s shorter at the front, usually with a fringe at eyebrow length, and left longer at the back.

The medium wolf cut is all about layering and amplifying volume, especially at the crown. It allows you to wear a longer style while still achieving the edgy, shag look around the face.

What’s the difference between a typical layered cut and the wolf cut? The focus on the wolf cut is not on short, even layers to create heaps of volume at the back of the head, but rather on using the short layers to frame the face. It's why you'll often see the cut accompanied by longer curtain bangs.

What face shape is wolf cut good for? If you have a round face, you'll be wild about this hybrid of a tousled shag and a modified mullet that's currently taking TikTok by storm. It's a great choice if you have medium-length hair, because choppy layers create movement around the chin and jawline, which helps soften a round face.

While a wolf cut works on most types and textures, those with thicker hair that has a bit of a wave or curl will look best with a wolf cut. That’s because the cut relies heavily on layers and volume.  Straight hair will likely require a bit more styling time at home to create movement or volume. That said, the wolf cut has depth and dimension due to the choppy waves and wispy layers. This can make your hair look thicker and more voluminous. The wolf cut combines short layers on top with longer layers as you go further down your scalp. This creates the illusion of more hair on your head.

Take a look at these examples of the wolf cut … we told you it’s very versatile! Which one is your favorite? Break away from the pack, flaunt your edgy wild side and get howling soon with your own wolf cut!

Hair Spa Treatments: What are they and how can they benefit me?


Who DOESN’T love being pampered?! We all need a break from the rat race and keeping all those balls in the air. We DESERVE an escape from the seemingly ever-increasing drama, concerns, and stressors of the ever-changing world around us. 

So how will YOU choose to treat yourself to some well-earned pampering? Day spa? A massage? Those are great forms of pampering but don’t forget: even your hair needs some “me” time!

With changing lifestyles, increased exposure to dust and pollution, frequent consumption of processed and oily foods, and stress from everyday life in general, the health of our hair takes a beating. Many of us are concerned about dull, damaged, hair, which lacks bounce and shine.

That’s why Salon 1580 is excited to introduce a new service: Organic Hair Spa Treatments! They can transform the beauty AND health of your hair and scalp! The added benefit is relaxing salon pampering!

Once upon a time, Sunday champis or hair oil massages with our mothers and grandmothers were a ritual. Today’s hair spa treatment will give you the same benefits.

What is Hair Spa?

A hair spa treatment includes a combination of oil massaging, shampoo, hair mask, and hair conditioning. Each of these has a specific purpose and function in adding to hair health. 

When you visit Salon 1580 for a hair spa treatment, Pat will assess your hair type, as well as hair and/or scalp issues you are facing. Based on her evaluation, she will suggest a suitable hair spa treatment. While some hair spa treatments will strengthen the hair, others may target hair thinning, or dandruff and itchy scalp. Your Hair Spa Treatment will be customized personally for YOUR needs.

Used in sequence, this treatment process will help restore the shine, texture, and bounce to your hair:

  1. With warm oil, the scalp is massaged. 
  2. Hair is then washed with a mild, nourishing shampoo. 
  3. A hair spa masque is then applied from the root to the tip. 
  4. Your hair is secured in a cap and heat is applied via sitting under the dryer to create steam (while you enjoy some wine or your favorite beverage). 
  5. Your hair is rinsed and a leave-in conditioner and/or serum is applied. 
  6. Your hair will be blow-dried. (A curler set or finishing styling, such as flat ironing, is available for an additional charge.)

Are Hair Spas for me?   

These treatments are highly effective for these common hair problems:

  • Thinning of hair
  •  Dryness and dullness of hair 
  • Hair fall 
  • Dandruff 
  • Rough hair 
  • Dry and itchy scalp 
  • Thinning of hair 
  •  Oily scalp 
  • Gradual and slow hair growth 
  • Hair breakage

A nourishing hair spa is also a great way to mitigate the damage caused by chemical hair treatments.

Benefits of hair spa:

  • Conditions the Hair, nourishing with protein and moisturizes. 
  • Normalizes Oil Secretion 
  • Stimulates Blood Circulation 
  • Repairs Damaged Hair 
  • Reduces Hair and Scalp Issues 
  • Strengthens hair roots and follicles. 
  • Relaxes the Mind and Body, Reducing Stress.

So, what are you waiting for?! Book YOUR Restorative, Pampering, Organic Hair Spa Treatment TODAY as an add-on service or full-service treatment. Pat Alessi is offering customized treatments for your personal needs at the introductory price of only $50*! (Prices subject to change after the launch of these new, customized treatments. Extra charges may apply for hair longer than shoulder-length, damaged hair, and/or above-average thickness.)

Winter Hair Trends 2022: Layering is HOT!


Winter is for layering … yes, layering your clothes to stay warm and help adjust the body’s temperature going while going in and out of the cold. BUT this year, Winter is for HAIR layers, too! It’s the latest style! And you KNOW how Pat Alessi loves layers, texture, and movement in hair! This season, she is definitely in her element.

“Haircut trends this season will involve flattering length and layer distribution, adding playful face frames and fringes,” says RUSK Hair Global Creative Director Matt Swinney, who is seeing a lot of ‘70s and ‘90s influence lately. Layered hair is pleasantly low-maintenance, with lots of movement and can work with a range of hair textures. 

Modern Shag: blown-out & naturally curly

Long Layers

Celebrity hairstylists and other experts are telling us that the latest and greatest styles are modern shags, long layered looks, cropped cuts, layered curls, and choppy layers.

Other layered looks that are trending are wolf cuts (a mullet with a voluminous twist)[1], and the modern mullet, AKA the “soft-serve mullet”[2]. (Yes, it's a "thing".)

More Retro Layering Styles That are HOT Right Now!

‘70s layers aka “feathering” (think Farrah Fawcett), as well as face-framing layers are BIG, with a huge trend being a modern twist to the 90s “The Rachel” cut (from the TV series “Friends”).

Layered Curls

 Edgy + Soft = Bixie

Another hot look of the season is the BIXIE. The newly coined hair trend, "bixie" is exactly what it sounds like — a cross between a pixie and a bob. The bixie combines the edginess of a pixie with the softness of a bob, and it's suitable for all hair textures. The bixie cut can be tailored to any style depending on whether a client wants a more textured or a more polished look.[3]



Don’t care for layers?  Or at least not ready to take the plunge? That’s OK, because styles you love are here to stay, and some can even incorporate layering … like The Bobcat (a blunt bob). Celebrity hairstylist Sunny Brook recommends going an inch or two shorter for a bolder look. "The beauty of this cut is that it can be customized to any hair texture,” said Brooks. For fine hair, she recommends getting very blunt edges to add bulk. For medium or dense hair, you can add ghost layers to remove weight and add a bit of movement. And for thick wavy or curly hair, the stylist suggests going a bit longer with "added layers to remove weight and give your hair movement and openness around your face."[4]  The "Sliced Bob" is going to be everywhere this winter. This ultra-blunt cut is often seen on thin hair and super-sleek, but is also perfect for thick hair because it takes extra weight out and adds movement. Like so many iterations of the bob, the sliced bob looks amazing worn straight or wavy.

Bangs are big this winter, from soft sexy fringe to grown-out, cheekbone length curtain bangs[6] or feathery 1970s-inspired fringe (like the one Billie Eilish sports).

Fringe Bangs

Curtain Bangs

Cuts aside, a big style trend right now (and again, retro, this time the ‘90s) is “high, half-up/half-down hair”. And THE “in” color is Icy Blonde.[8]

So … if you are ready to beat the winter doldrums, spice things up with a new ‘do!  Maybe these hair trends will inspire you!
