Types of Layers

There are many types of layers that one can accumulate in the hair, like a long-distance layer in which the distance between layers is way more, and there are fewer layers in finished hair. One might also have short distance layers in which the number of layers is way more than the previous one, but their in-between distance is comparatively less. Let’s discuss in the following what options do we have while layering?

Types of Layered Haircuts for Short Hair

When it comes to styling shoulder-length hair, it may not be easy to develop new ideas. Using textures to your hair, on the other side, will make a big difference. For some structure and composition, start with undercut sides at the cheekbones, and play with various sections to fit your facial features to change up your look.

Long layers are created by keeping the longer hair and cutting through it only a few centimeters from the edges. Layering aims to prevent choppy, severe lines, and long layers are ideal for this. Long, soft layers will add structure and length to your hair if you ask your hairdresser for them.

The layers begin across the face, reaching the cheekbone in some instances, meaning that the waves are both accentuated and subtle. Since layers inherently bring movement to your hair, they need minimal styling, which means you can hit the snooze button on your daily alarm.

Are Layered Haircuts A ‘Yes’ For Curly Hair?

Layers are best for curly hair since they hold curves in place and under control. Get textures feathered through your hair, no matter what length it is, to accentuate your waves. To create a polished, trendy appearance, we recommend wearing medium-length layers. To style, apply some mousse to wet hair and dry with a nozzle to keep frizz at bay.
