Layered hair is hair that has been cut in several layers to create a hairstyle that is different and more dynamic than that of more evenly and flat cut hair. Depending on someone’s goal, layered hair can appear to have more volume than it really does, or the layers may be added to create the illusion of length.
Hairstylists can also offer advice on the type of layers which would work best with someone’s hair, body type, and facial structure: a good haircut can highlight someone’s natural beauty, while poorly or indifferently cut such a hair style can be a disaster
Such haircuts with long layers are gaining popularity again, as long layers allow for a large number of different styling choices. Styling long layered hair can seem like a daunting task, but with a little practice will be a simple part of your everyday routine.
There are many different styles of layered hair, ranging from more choppy, daring cuts which tend to look best on younger people, to more conservative layers which are appropriate for older people.
Most hairstylists can cut layers on request, although because layered looks can be cut in radically different ways, it is a good idea to bring in a photograph of the hairstyle you are going for. Live models also work, and if you know someone with a hairstyle you like, you may want to consider going to his or her stylist and requesting a similar version.
Layers can be styled in different ways. Some women like very angular, choppy layers which are clearly visible, while others prefer gentler layering which is not immediately obvious. People can layer their whole heads, or stick with layering the hair around the face to frame the face.
Layers can also be combined with bangs, curls, and other hairstyles. Some people like to color their hair while layering it, adding highlights, streaks, and other color patterns which can help blend the layers to make them look and feel more natural.
Steps to follow –
o Begin by straightening your long layers. While your hair is damp, use the blow dryer and round brush to straighten your hair. Run the brush through your hair while blow-drying it a section at a time. Roll the brush under as you reach the end of your hair to ensure your ends all lay in the same direction.
o Curl each section of your hair, re-clipping it gently after you have completed a section. Remove the clips once you have worked your way through all four sections. Run a comb or pick through your hair to separate the curls. Spray them gently with the hair spray of your choice to hold your curls in place.
o Pull your hair back for another simple option for long layers. Dampen your brush and run it through your hair, gathering your hair at the back of your head. If you wish to put your hair up in a simple ponytail, secure the hair at the back of your head with an elastic band.
o Pull the top part of your layers away from your face, leaving the majority of your layers down and loose. To achieve this look, separate your hair, pulling a bit of it away from the top of your head. Comb the separated section back and clip it. Use a twist if you want to add a bit of class and sophistication. Twist your hair at the back of your head, clip it near the base of the twist and allow the excess hair to fall over the top of the clip.
o Braid your long layered hair, if you wish to keep it completely secured and easy to manage. Comb your hair toward the back of your head and separate it into three sections.
