When it comes to cutting and styling curly hair we find that we are pretty particular. Curly hair can be a little temperamental and very much depends on an exact combination of cut, products and the right styling methods to ensure that it looks its best. One of our favorite styles are layered haircuts for curly hair as a way to enhance your natural texture that also uses your curls to shape your style. Layered haircuts for curly hair are especially a great option when you think of the alternative. A straight edged style would likely lead to a lot of volume on the bottom that would weigh your hair down. We’re not really into flat roots, thank you very much. Read on to check out four inspirational layered haircuts for curly hair, and a few of our expert styling tips and product recommendations that’ll have you looking fab in no time.
Cute Layered Haircuts for Curly Hair
1. Go Long
Let your hair grow out until it reaches past your shoulders and request long layers next time you head to the stylist. As mentioned above, a longer style will pull your curls down a little and create a looser effect. This is the best way to embrace your natural texture without going overboard. To combat some of that heavy weight, make sure to apply sone mousse, like the Catwalk by TIGI Strong Hold Mousse, which will help you to maintain some of your curls’ natural shape.
2. Light Layered Lob
A shoulder-brushing style with subtle layers at the bottom is perhaps the chicest and trendiest way to wear your curls. A shorter style encourages more lift at the roots and a voluminous edge to your style.
3. Curly Cropped Hairstyle
Think of this style as the elegant alternative to a grown out pixie. Add a few dabs of the Axe Smooth Look: Shine Pomade to smooth down any loose ends and wear your stylish and voluminous curls with ease.
4. Layers and Bangs
As we learned in 2016, women with curly hair can (and should!) rock bangs. Lots of short layers blend seamlessly into your bangs and a leave-in conditioner like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Hydra-Light Leave-In Conditioning Foam will keep your hair hydrated and in check.
