by 334 views 334 views  

Raise your hands if you love layered hairstyles because with layers you just can’t get wrong! Whether you opt for a messy look or a sleek, straight hairstyle, layers will always have your back. With the right layered cut, you never need to go above and beyond to make your hair look voluminous—or spend hours with your dryer to frame your face properly.

Yep, we’re absolutely in love with layers. The good news: there are a hundred ways to wear your layered hair! Scroll down below for a few of our favourite styles that are curated for all lengths and types.

1. The Face Framer

Rachel Green had them; need we say anymore? They’re perfect for those who like shoulder length hair and would love to accentuate their jawlines. The best part about managing this style? All you need is a good hair serum to keep them tangle free (like TIGI Bed Head Control Freak Frizz Control And Straightener Serum or Schwarzkopf Professional Bonacure Peptide Repair Rescue Nutri-Shield Serum), and you’re good to go. PS: Hair clips and knotted hairbands are your BFFs, and you still have your neck free to sport a nice scarf too.

2. The Boho Chic Ombre

Perfect for medium to long hair, try this look with loose waves and an ombre hair colour. We love those gorgeous dark waves that are dipped in lighter silver-whites. You can style them to straightened perfection, or just keep ‘em wild and messy. If you have long tresses, you can tie them up in a bun or opt for a half-up hairdo. Just remember to condition the ends as much as you can, and you’re golden. Try Love Beauty & Planet Murumuru Butter And Rose Aroma Blooming Colour Combo or LOreal Professionnel Resveratrol Vitamino Color Masque.

3. The Fringed-Up Layers

Who doesn’t love bangs? The perfect haircut to complement bands are both short and long layers. This a great style for those who love messy hair. You can rock the just-out-of-bed look or pull back your bangs with a hair clip for a quick front pouf with L'oreal Professionnel Homme Mat Matt Sculpting Pomade and Schwarzkopf Professional Osis + Session Label Flexible Hold Hair Spray.

4. Beachy Waves & Loose Curls

In love with textured hair? Get the cutest beachy look with a layered haircut for medium to long hair. If you have naturally wavy hair, you can get some lighter highlights or set your curls with Sebastian Professional Whipped Creme For Bouncy Curls; if not, you can try Alan Truman Hot Stick Professional slim Hair Curler to get those envious curls. PS: Style your hair with braids or hair accessories for some extra drama.

5. The Choppy Short Layers

Are you a pixie girl? A fabulous short, layered haircut can make your hair look voluminous and bouncy. The best part: you can opt for different hairstyles post the cut; think sleek side-parted pixie, a messy fringe or even spikes using a little styling wax or gel like the LOreal Professionnel Tecni Art Smooth Liss Control Gel Cream. We also recommend playing around with  quirky global hair colours such as the Streax Professional Hold & Play Funky Colours - Glorious Green to elevate your look further.
