These days, Hershberger charges upward of $800 for a cut, and likes to do the cutting with a razor while the hair is dry. Yet, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: Her enthusiasm for the shag. “The reason that I love the shag so much is that it really emphasizes layers,” says Hershberger. “Anything that has movement is considered shag.”
If you can’t afford to drop close to a grand for a Hershberger haircut, you can still experience a little of her magic with her product line available at drugstores nationwide.
