Eilish’s once black hair with green roots and a mullet hairstyle has been replaced with shiny blonde locks cut into a mullet-meets-shag ‘do. And now, several months later, this haircut is making the rounds on TikTok and is known as the “wolf cut”.
Both mullet and shag haircuts have grown in popularity this year and the beauty of the wolf cut is that it mixes these two styles to create a slightly softer version.

Describe the look you’re going for and show them reference photos to make sure you’re both on the same page.
