It’s easy to let long hair go for months without a cut. The result? Locks that are heavy, flat, and limp. Adding in some layers brings life back to long hair, removing length and bulk for a flattering look with plenty of volume.
Check out the pictures below for 3 different ways to wear long hairstyles with layers!
Everyday is a great hair day with the right layered haircut. This gorgeous cut combines soft volume around the face with collar-bone skimming length.
This is such an easy cut to style! Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner and let air dry. For fine hair, try Kérastase Volumactive or John Frieda Luxurious Volume. For other hair types, Oribe Magnificent Volume adds fullness and shine.
For super straight hair, layers are the way to add interesting angles and create a gorgeous profile. These graduated layers concentrate volume around the face. To make the most of this hairstyle, keep hair ultra healthy and moisturized. Try a weekly or monthly deep conditioning treatment with coconut oil or the classic V05 hot oil.
Layers make curling hair a breeze! Select strands that are different lengths to curl to get all over volume! This is makes curling hair even easier because you just need to curl a few inches at the end of each strand. Notice how the coils next to the face are curled out and away, for a gorgeous soft frame.
You can add bangs to any of these hairstyles or as you can see, they are gorgeous without. All types of fringe work, from Zoey Deschanel’s blunt bangs to wispy side bangs. Ensure that bangs lie flat by blasting them with a blow dryer before they have a chance to dry, even if you let the rest of hair air dry. A touch of serum will also prevent fly aways without leaving fringe flat or greasy.
