19 Oct Pick the Right Layered Haircut and Join the Texture Trend
As with any trend, the styles we love when it comes to hair come and go. There was a brief moment when feather extensions were all the rage, and everyone is thankful that time has passed! But there’s one trend that comes back more frequently than others, and that’s layers. Over the past 60 years, we’ve fallen in love with layered cuts that add volume, movement, and plenty of texture to hair, rejuvenating tired styles. Now, this hair look is bigger and better than ever, and we’ve got everything you need to know to get the look.
The Many Styles of a Layered Cut
One of the factors that have kept layers coming back year after year is their versatility. This style is far from a one-trick pony! You can find layered looks that are super voluminous and retro, looks that are ready for the red carpet, and layers for anyone who loves that salty, beach-wave look on sunkissed locks. From 70s Hollywood stars to Instagram models, every woman can rock a layered look – you just have to find the right one for you.
Know Your Style Before Choosing Your Layers
The first step to picking your perfect layered hairstyle is to know the rest of your style. If you love minimalism, a huge 70s layered blow-out might not be what you’re looking for. But long, wavy hair with a few subtle layers to add volume and texture could be right up your street. Consider not only what you like the look of on other women, but what you can imagine loving on you. What looks match your wardrobe, personality, and lifestyle?
Are You Low-Maintenance or High-Maintenance?
If you’re a lady who loves to get ready in the morning or before a night out, you’ll be able to go for a more high-maintenance look. Typically, short hair and layers can take a little more time to style than longer hair. However, if you go for a look that needs to be blow-dried, curled, and texturized to get it just right, the longer your hair the more time it’ll take!
If you prefer low-maintenance looks, opt for just a few layers in your hair. They’ll be much easier to style and control. If you’re not sure whether a style is high or low-maintenance, feel free to send a picture to our team and we’ll be happy to hel
Styling Your Layers
Layers are amazing for adding volume and movement to the hair, so make the most of that by learning to style them. Layers work best when hair is curled or wavy, so invest in either a circle brush and hairdryer for blow-out waves or a flat iron/curling tong for more control over your curls. If you’re still struggling to get the volume you’re looking for, use a volumizing or texturizing product to add life to your locks. Lock in place with a quick spritz of hairspray and you’re good to go!
