Layered haircuts are making such a huge come back this fall. From long to short and everything in between you will be seeing a lot of layered haircuts in the streets of New York.
There are several reasons to love layered haircuts, and they have been your favorite for ages. They frame your face beautifully, they tame the freeze, and they give your hair movement and volume. Those arguing against them usually say that although beautiful, they tend to be less elegant than hair without layers. Layered haircuts also fail to reflect light in the same way hair without layers can, and thus they might appear to be flat and lifeless.
As always the truth is somewhere in between. Knowing your hair and being cognizant of your hair needs is always important. You can decide on the length or the extend of your layers based on the quality of your hair and your lifestyle. Moisturizing is also key for layered haircuts. No surprises here. Make sure that your hair always stays hydrated and in top condition. Leave-in conditioners, and moisturizing masks always help, particularly when they contain essential oils. Finally, a consultation with your stylist is of paramount importance for good results.
Let’s take a look together on inspired takes of layered haircuts.
Layered Haircuts – The Look Book
Long Luscious Layers
Long layered haircuts are amazingly popular with most women. And quite frankly we can’t see why not. They are sexy, elegant and allow for movement and volume. They also frame your face and highlight your best features. Layered haircuts look amazing both straight and curly, but a beautiful blow dry will showcase their shape and style. Remember to go for longer layers when your hair has a lot of volume, as shorter ones might look bulky and shapeless.
Long Layered Haircuts with Bangs
If volume is what you are after, a series of layers that culminates in bangs is your best bet. Your stylist will make sure to discuss with you the different options you have in terms of length and framing. Take some time to explain what you want and what you feel would be your best option. It is sometimes helpful to bring along pictures that you find inspiring to discuss relative values. What you think as “short” might not be what you stylist calls “short.”
Layered Haircuts with Highlights
Layered haircuts work amazingly well with color and highlights. The multidimensionality of layers allows for highlights to look more natural and less fixed on your hair. If you are contemplating layered haircuts, it might also be worthwhile to consider getting the highlights later to compliment the style you have chosen. Again, your stylist and colorist will help you decide what is right for you, based on your facial features and your hair type.
Short Layered Haircuts
One might argue that there is really not much to say about short layered haircuts. Although they seem to be pretty straight forward they are actually very sophisticated in essence. A competent stylist will be able to give you the look you want and to compliment your facial features.
