No doubt about, hair is one of the many ways to express yourself. So have fun with a hairstyle that not only flatters but reveals something about your personality and style.
One of these looks is long hair with short layers! It’s a variation on the layered trend but with a bold and edgy twist. Keep reading for 3 different ways to get the look.
Short layers are exactly what they sound like – shorter than longer layers in other layered hairstyles. Shorter layers concentrate volume around the face and above the shoulders. Depending on the look you’re after and how long hair, short layers can be cut between chin and shoulder length.
Styling long hair with short layers requires slightly more maintenance than other layered cuts. The shorter hair is more lightweight than longer locks and can tend to frizz. This means it’s best suited to straight hair or even with a touch of wave.
For any hair type other than coarse, straight hair, use an anti-frizz serum on wet hair and blow dry at least the shortest layers so they lie flat. Similar to bangs, you don’t want to leave this to chance. Other than that, style hair as usual with gorgeous curls like above or in half up or all the way up hairstyles.
When you think about it bangs are essentially short layers, and vice versa. In this edgy version, the shortest layers are cut to the jawline at the front and get longer around the back.
Cutting layers short means that the longest hair is thinner and with less volume. This rock and roll-inspired look is a play in contrasts and look best when worn pin straight. Take care of all hair by always a using heat protectant spray with any styling tools and treat yourself to a DIY conditioning mask one a week or month.
