The Jellyfish Haircut Is Perfect for Anyone Torn Between a Bob and Long Hair

As for which face shapes this style works for? Pretty much all of them, though Abramite reiterates that it’s far from low-maintenance. “This bold style works on every face shape, but it’s not for the faint of heart. The design lines are unblended causing a heavy build up in weight that feature thin lengths underneath,” she explains. “While it’s big on style and trendy, it’s not the easiest style to wear because of the extreme silhouette and changes in weight distribution.”

Cavalcante echoes this. “It’s modern and youthful but a bit more of a commitment than other haircuts,” he says. “If you go all in, this isn’t a boardroom cut; make sure it fits your lifestyle.”

Once you’re 100% committed to the look, Cavalcante recommends requesting “significant layers around the face with bangs and left long in the back” at the salon.”You can make it subtle or seriously go for it by creating different lengths of layers for a softer look or go dramatic by cutting a bob, yet leaving pieces in the back underneath long,” he says.

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!”

The jellyfish haircut is equally easy to part with, adds Abramite. “Luckily, this haircut is easy to grow out when you’re over the trend,” she says. “It can immediately be transformed into a bob by cutting off the tendrils returning to a more classic look.” Really, there’s no way to lose.

Finally, there’s styling, which depends on the look you’re going for as well as your hair type. “A sleek look with a flat iron is popular for straight hair with an oil or serum for shine,” says Abramite. “Round brushing with a mousse is best for volume to flip out or curl the ends under. For wavy or coily hair, a blow dry with a diffuser is recommended with a texture cream.”

For a more classic blowout, Cavalcante suggests starting with a round brush or flat iron to style the upper section of the hair, smoothing, and straightening the bangs and layers.

“The longer back sections can be blown straight and flipped outwards at the end, or loosely tousled, like a jellyfish,” Cavalcante says. “Use a heat protection spray like Hask Monoi Coconut 5-in-1 Leave-in Spray to add thermal protection and add shine without stiffness.

Alternatively, to take the edginess to the next level, Williams suggests applying texture paste all over. Hurtado echoes this, advising that you scrunch it up with your hands and fingers and spraying texturizing and thickening spray for some extra fluff.
