If you want to get a new, totally gorgeous hairstyle for summer but don't know what kind of look to go for, a shoulder-length layered haircut is definitely one you should consider. As seen on model and L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Liya Kebede, medium-length layers can be oh so beautiful when done right!

Why you should get mid-length layers

Neither too long nor too short, shoulder grazing layers are perfect for summer. They're not heavy on the back of your neck, and there are plenty of updo options to explore when humidity and soaring temperatures factor into your styling choices. The layers keep the movement light and effortless and they provide the perfect foundation for a polished blowout.

Layered hairstyles also look great with all kinds of bangs, so you can get really creative with your fringe. Whether you love the idea of some vintage seventies inspired bangs, or want something more messy and modern, layered hair can handle it all!

Styling tips

1/ Add volume

Enhancing your hair's natural volume is really easy with a layered cut. Scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse into damp hair and rough dry, using your hands instead of a brush. When the hair is almost dry, grab a round brush and use it to loosely curl the lengths - this will add movement and create a full-bodied finish.

2/ Stay sleek

For a smooth, glossy look that lasts, finishing sprays are essential. When you're done styling, mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine.

3/ Prevent frizz and flyaways

There's nothing like a bunch of flyaways or an impromptu frizz storm to put a dampener on your hairstyle. To prevent either from happening, seal your strands against the elements with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
