These subtle, layered hairstyles are super versatile, working to give you an utterly gorgeous look, no matter your face shape may be! So, if you want to find the perfect style, just read on to discover 5 fantastic long layered haircuts that are both flattering and easy to recreate.
5 Long layered haircuts you need to try
Long layers can be a great foundation for creating volume and movement – and this look is a really beautiful and glamorous way of working the style. Opt for a slightly off-centre parting to give it a fresh twist, then create some soft, natural-looking waves, which will help open up your face, enhancing your features perfectly.
Editor’s tip: This look works especially well on those with rounder faces as it helps to create an elongated effect. If you have a longer face shape, however, think about creating more volume with bigger curls with hair rollers to help add width.
This big and wild bombshell look instantly exudes exotic glamour – and a long layered haircut is essential for creating the hairstyle. Use TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen for a Day Thickening Spray on damp hair, to ensure you add lots of body and volume. Then create big curls with your hair rollers or curling wand, and tease them to amp up the look for maximum effect.
Sexy beach waves
There’s something about those gorgeously laid-back, casual waves that just makes long hair look absolutely gorgeous – and it’s one of our favourite hairstyles to recreate with a long layered cut. Try the TRESemmé Perfectly (un)done Sea Salt Spray to help boost that textured effect after curling your locks to create those soft, undulating waves.
Editor’s tip: Achieve more natural-looking, messy results by gently brushing out your perfectly formed curls with your hands and scrunching them up.
Red carpet blowout
Perfect blow-out hair has to be one of the most coveted looks when it comes to long ‘dos, and a layered haircut can look absolutely incredible when styled this way. With a smooth yet voluminous finish (and defining curves at the end), it just screams red carpet glamour and sophistication. Seriously, what’s not to love?
Slick centre part
Long layered haircuts don’t always have to include curls or volume to look good: they are also stunning when kept sleek and straight with a centre part. Take your cue from Kendall Jenner’s smooth, long locks with soft, lengthy layers throughout to create plenty of movement. Or, if you’re after a more polished look, you can also try blow-drying your hair straight and add subtle curls for face-framing perfection!
