‘Jellyfish Hair’ Is Trending And It’s Like A Mullet On Steroids

Recent trends include mullet-style hair and shags. Billie Eilish and Miley Cyrus popularized the wolf haircut—a combination of a shag, bob, and mullet. Then there’s the shullet, which as the name suggests is a mash-up of the classic ’70s shag and the ’80s mullet.

Now, there’s a new mullet-esque style that’s been trending all over social media, and it’s absolutely out of this world. It has elements of the hime haircut—aka the anime cut—that took over the internet last year. This popular Japanese style is straight with cheek-length side-locks. The frontal fringe is long and straight.

This latest trend is called jellyfish hair, and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen.

Social media is the main source of hairstyle trends these days. Jellyfish hair is no exception. This new style, described as a mix of mullet and hime, is making its mark in beauty industry after it became a popular countercultural style in countries like Tokyo, London and Taiwan.

What is jellyfish hair exactly? It’s exactly as it sounds—a multi-layered, blunt hairstyle that looks like the sea creature it’s named after. You can achieve the jellyfish silhouette by letting the bottom layer at the nape be cut in a 360-degree bob.

You can wear the under layer straight or curl it. For a striking contrast of color, the jellyfish hairstyle can be worn with an under layer that is a different color from the bob.

This social media trend was introduced to the public by Nicole Kidman, who wore the look on the August 2022 cover. Perfect Magazine. However, her under layer was left much thicker than the images we’ve seen on Instagram and seems more reminiscient of traditional hime cuts.

While this style is not for everyone we love its bold colors and unique style. Jellyfish hairstyles are easy to change from other trendy styles that can be difficult to style and can cause hair problems.

Hair is a creative outlet, and we can’t wait to see what edgy style makes waves next.
