The mushroom hairstyle, also known as a bowl cut, is a simple yet detailed way to style your hair. It features short hair on the sides while the top is left long and even. The result is usually a rounded hairdo that resembles a mushroom head, hence its name.

Traditional mushroom haircuts always have the same length, but modern iterations allow for more styling options at the back while focusing on the round bangs.

Furthermore, celebrities and models have donned this haircut. For instance, French actress Marion Cottilard rocked this haircut on the Met Gala 2023 red carpet and looked dazzling. Similarly, Charlize Theron has sported the haircut too. If you’re still doubting, here’s the go-ahead you need to take the plunge. If world-class celebrities rock the bowl cut, that lends credence to its coolness. So, if you’re still doubting, this is the sign you need to go ahead with it.

How to Style Mushroom Haircuts

After your hairstylist has given you this haircut, styling it won’t be difficult. First, you have to ensure your hair is clean always by washing your hair with a volumizing hair care product. This will help add volume to your bowl hairstyle.

Afterward, enhance the texture by applying a texture finishing spray all over your hair. This is perfect for short bowl haircuts. Once you’ve boosted the texture, use a blowdryer with the concentration nozzle attached to dry your hair. As you do so, finger-comb your strands and use your hand to lift your hair at the roots. But if your hair is naturally curly or wavy, use a round brush to straighten your texture first before blow-drying.

Once that’s settled, your hair is almost ready. But don’t leave the mirror yet. If you need curls, use a one-inch curling iron to create loose, chunky curls that don’t have to be perfect.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or sketching fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
