Experience by Stylist:
Client did not want to reduce the length, but wanted a different look. Considering the length to be just below shoulders, there were very few things that we possible. Hence we went for a shag or a rough haircut, so that a shorter layers would give client a different look.
When this cut was done, the shortest layers were quite short and it gave a kind of perfect messy look and changed clients looks completely from simple to kind of more modern and flirty.
Client liked this haircut and the new look, although since a lots of hair was cut in the process keeping the length same, client felt that the volume was reduced a bit, this feeling was more after looking at all the hair fallen on the floor. But i guess overall client was satisfied with the look and it definitely made client look much younger and modern.
