Layered haircuts: should you get one?

To layer or not to layer?

Layered hairstyles come with all kinds of benefits. By switching from a strict blunt cut to something more lightweight, you can change your entire look! Incorporating different lengths into once cut will change the silhouette, alter the way your locks frame your face, and reduce bulkiness at the ends to keep thick hair from overwhelming your face.

Before you decide whether or not a layered cut is right for you, there are a few things you need to think about.

What you want

Most importantly, you need to consider just what it is you want your haircut to do. Layered cuts are often used to add body and volume to thin or flat hair. Layers are less harsh than something ultra-geometric, helping to soften the appearance of prominent features. Bangs and other shorter layers can help you accentuate certain features and draw attention away from others. They can also help make a longer cut appear more put-together, too.

This can all help to facilitate that volumized blowout you've been dreaming of or make air-dried hair appear better behaved than it does with a style that is all about uniform ends.

Top tip – Master a layered blowout by applying Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray then drying the hair in sections with a round brush. Mist each section with hairspray, let it cool and brush the hair through.

A good fit

Talk to your stylist to find out what kind of layers will be most flattering for your face shape and natural hair texture. They can tell you what will look best and just how much layering is a good amount for you, not the girl in the magazine photo you brought with you.

What do you think? Will you get a layered cut?
