In my opinion, a layered hairstyle is an absolute must. There are so many times that I have gone to my beautician just to have my layers worked over.
Why are layers so awesome?
First of all, layered hairstyles enhance the way your hair lies, making it appear both extremely natural and immediately eye-catching.
Secondly, layered hairstyles “come alive” when you walk, causing your hair to move naturally and showcase itself in the best possible way.
Layered hairstyles work for pretty much all looks, hair types and even hair age (yes, that can be important!) Let’s take a look at some hairstyle pictures, tips and ideas for adding layering to any look!
Just scroll through the list until you find the hairstyle you are looking for:
A layered haircut is where the top portions of the hair are cut into layers. So the very top of the hair would be the shortest layer, and then each level down would be a little bit longer with the bottom of the hair having the longest layers.
The layered hair cut is what all of the movie stars use, and it is the basis of every eye-catching hair cut. The layered hair cut should do three things really well. First, It should frame you face well and draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones. Secondly it should give your hair the illusion of being fuller and having more body. Finally, is should enhance the way you hair lies, it should help it move more naturally when you walk, and give you an eye-catching advantage wherever you go.
Find a look that will frame your face well, and add layers that match your hairs’ natural flow.
Layered Hairstyles with bangs
Adding bangs to your look is a great way to create a perfect frame for your face. Keep hose bangs long, and you can even add some light layering to your bangs!
Side swept bangs are great for sharper faces. They create a softness above the eyes that help soften the whole character of the face.
Layered Hairstyles for long hair
Long hair has so much potential! You can have varying layers, layered bangs, layered side bangs…. the list goes on!
Layers makes longer hair much more manageable. Plus, long hair can be, well, blah. Layers add spice to ensure that your lovely locks are always eye-catching!
Long hair takes a lot of work to maintain, so make sure your effort is payed off by creating a flawless look that accentuates the natural beauty of your hair.
Layered Hairstyles for medium hair
Medium length hair has a lot of the benefit of longer locks — without as much of the commitment.
As afar as styling choices, medium length hairstyles can still pretty much take advantage of all of the hair styles that a longer look might try for. So add lots of layers, and feel free to use some hot rollers occasionally to add even more depth to your hair from time to time.
Medium hair might also look great with some use of the flat iron – the shorter, layered top strands tend to really create a striking look when straightened.
Layered Hairstyles for short hair
Short hair is so much fun! It is off your neck, and easy to take care of.
Layers are a must when it comes to short hair! You may not have much hair, but what you have needs to be eye-catching. The singer Pink is a great example of this. Short hair, great color, lots of layers.
Layered Hairstyles for fine hair
Fine hair possess some extra challenges and all too often ends up looking flat and straggly.
Bottom line is, layers are the perfect trick for fine hair. They add volume to it, and help create a more natural flow to your hair. It gives you that wonderful illusion of being well-kept — even if it is Monday morning and you are running late.
You may find in your daily care that you will want to use some mousse and volumizing shampoo to help add even more strength to your look.
Layered Hairstyles for thick hair
Thick hair can be so beautiful – and frustrating. Nothing like a frizzy spring morning or summer jog to make you wish your hair was not so thick.
Layers on long hair need a little more care. Traditionally, beauticians will layer all of the hair equally causing a layer of thicker hair on top, with the thinner hair being on the bottom.
If you already have thicker hair, you may wish to have your beautician thin your top, layered hair, to help create a more uniform look all way around — and remove that heavy, weighted feeling.
Layered Hairstyles for thin hair
A lot of people are scared to cut their thin hair. They worry that it will make it appear even thinner.
However, there are a few keys to cutting thin hair that can really add some flair.
First of all, go with a blunt cut. Precision cutting tends to enhance the thinned look of the hair, whereas a blunt cut will give it more volume. Secondly you can add layers to the hair to help it appear to have more volume and depth (but stay away from a shag cut). And, finally use plenty of light weight mousse to help create a fun, full look you can love.
Layered Hairstyles for Women over 50
After you pass 35, your hair shifts its growth cycle. It grows more slowly and becomes thinner .
The length and style of your hair should not be dictated by your age – but by what looks best on you. Layered hairstyles are your friend. They enable you to have a look that is bold and full – not brittle and wiry. It also gives shape to your face and helps hide sags and other troublesome spots.
