What Is The ‘Kitty Cut’ Hairstyle & Is It Right for You?

At Rossano Ferretti Parma, we believe in transcending fleeting trends to embrace personalized hairstyles that uniquely reflect each individual’s character and style. While the ‘kitty cut’ has seen a surge in popularity as we’ve entered 2024, our focus remains on how this classic-silhouetted, short hairstyle can be tailored to suit you. Nestled between the length of a long bob or shoulder cut, the kitty cut features long textured layers and an overgrown curtain fringe that softly frames the face. It’s crafted for low maintenance and a soft texture, aligning with our philosophy of embracing natural beauty. This hairstyle is more than a trend; it’s a versatile and timeless choice that can be customized to fit anyone’s personal style.

Wolf cut, cub cut, kitty cut… What’s the difference?

The “kitty cut” differentiates itself from a similar popular haircut choice of recent, the “wolf cut.” While the latter is a revival of the 1970s-style shag with razored layers and blunt bangs, the kitty cut opts for a softer approach with rounded layers and breezy texture. It’s essentially a more wearable, lower-maintenance version of the shag cut. Above shoulder length and universally flattering, the kitty cut combines classic style with an edge that’s anything but boring.

With its softer, more natural shape, the kitty cut is perfectly achieved with our world-famous Ferretti Metodo Cut. Also known as the Ferretti Invisible Cut, this technique focuses on the natural fall of the wearer’s hair, leaving no bluntness or signs of scissors behind.

What hair types can rock the kitty cut?

One of the most appealing aspects of the kitty cut hairstyle is its versatility. This cut suits a wide range of hair types, from straight to wavy, and even curly hair. Its layered structure adds volume and movement, making it ideal for those with fine hair seeking a fuller look. At the same time, it can tame and give shape to thicker hair. The overgrown curtain fringe can be tailored to complement various face shapes, making it a universally flattering choice.

Styling tips for the kitty cut

The charm of the kitty cut lies in its effortless appeal, and styling it should be equally uncomplicated. To maintain the soft, textured look, Rossano Ferretti Parma offers a range of styling products. For instance, our Velluto Straightening Serum helps in achieving a sleek, frizz-free finish for those with straight or slightly wavy hair. If your hair is on the curlier side, the Favoloso Perfect Curls Enhancing Serum will accentuate and define your curls while keeping them soft and manageable.

To style your fringe, a small dab of our Favoloso Volumising Mousse can add volume with a light hold but without the stickiness or stiffness. And to maintain the health and shine of your kitty cut, regular use of the Prodigio Regenerating Oil helps support strong, healthy and shiny hair. Rossano Ferretti Parma styling products ensure your hair stays nourished, vibrant, and perfectly suited to the kitty cut’s chic silhouette.
