- The “C-shape” haircut is trending everywhere right now.
- The look showcases ’90s-inspired layers cut into “C” shapes.
- A good example of the soft, face-framing haircut is Rachel from “Friends.”
Earlier this year, animal-inspired hair trends were having a moment — from “octopus” layers to the “jellyfish” haircut — but more recently, cuts inspired by letters of the alphabet have been taking over our social media feeds. The “U-shape” cut became popular for faking fuller hair, as did the “V-shape” for layers, and now, the “C-shape” is all we’ve been hearing about for the last few weeks.
