By now you’ve heard (and seen) the benefits of wearing layers. Whether you wear it long and wavy or short and sleek, adding layers to your hair keeps it looking full and super sexy. To style up your layers properly, check out these six really fun hairstyles for layered cuts to wear.
6 Awesome Hairstyles for Layered Cuts
1. Dreamy Beach Waves
Mermaid-like beach waves are a fantastic style for layered long and medium lengths, so don’t be afraid to play up your texture for a gorgeous beach-inspired look. To get those sultry waves, apply a good texturizing spray, like the Suave Professionals Texturizing Salt Spray, onto your clean and damp strands. Then, air-dry and tease your hair to give it a sexy, tousled effect. The right highlights also enhance this look, so ask your stylist for some multi-dimensional balayage highlights to help your beachy waves pop.
2. Sleek and Straight Styles
Straighter styles allow you to show off your layers, especially when the layers are cut long and help frame the face. While a blow dryer, straightening iron, or straightening brush are essentials to achieving this look, you’ll also want to use a good anti-frizz serum before styling to keep your locks sleek and straight. To keep frizz and flyaways at bay, use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Serum before heat styling.
3. Textured Lobs
Lobs are another suitable hairstyle for layered hairstyles, as this look allows you to create sexy texture when worn wavy. Whether your length is long, medium or short, use a good mousse or texturizing salt spray before you air-dry to get this ultra trendy look.
4. Vintage Half-Up, Half-Down Updo
If you need a chic and romantic style to wear on your next big night out, this ‘60s-inspired updo is great for layered cuts, as it shows off your sultry layers through a mod and sexy ponytail. This look is all about volume, so apply a mousse like the Suave Professionals Luxe Styling Infusion Volumizing Souffle Mousse before styling. Once your product has been evenly distributed throughout the hair, use a brush to create a mini bouffant on the top part of your head, and secure your ‘bump’ with bobby pins and hairspray. If you have layered bangs, be sure to sweep them off to the side for a truly mod finish.
5. Layered Bangs
Bangs are great for layered cuts, as they keep your looks gritty and offbeat. Whether you wear a side bang or a full bang below the brow, keeping your bangs feathered creates a fashion-forward finish.
6. Shag Cuts
For a come-hither retro style straight out of the ‘70s, a grungy shag makes for a tough yet chic look. To get this edgy cut, be sure to ask your stylist to cut your layers choppy and whispy. This gives your mane a windswept look when air-dried. And whether you wear your shag in a bob or past your shoulders, this is one look that doesn’t require too much styling time. However, if you want to take your look a step further, add in some bangs below the brow to channel some major drama.
