Layered hairstyles are popular because they add softness, volume, and texture to every hair type and length. If you’re looking for something with a little more edgy, literally, these haircuts with graduated layers add angles that flatter your features. Check out these pictures for three ways to get the look!
For thick hair, stepped layers thin out hair, reducing weight to bring back lightness, body, and movement! This easy to wear cut keeps the shortest layers on the long side, curling well under the chin. Styling is simple – just keep hair well conditioned and use a shine serum or glossing creamto tame fly-aways.
Another reason to choose one of these angled layered hairstyles is to enhance the appearance of volume. The way different lengths sit on top of each other creates more depth than a blunt cut would. Get even more of a boost with a volumizing mousse, like this one from renowned French stylist Frédéric Fekkai.
This angled graduation is another way to get the cool indie-inspired long hair with short layers look. This dramatic look keeps lots of thickness above the shoulder and drastically thins out the longest lengths. The result is a steep diagonals. This cut is gorgeous worn without bangs but would also be amazing with heavy blunt fringe like Zooey Deschanel’s signature bangs.
