How to work this choppy look with style.
Long choppy layers can be the best thing to ever happen to long hair. For almost anyone who has long hair, keeping it all one length may be pretty to look at, but a pain to style. Once you get layers cut into your length, a whole new world opens up style-wise!
If you’re thinking about taking the plunge and getting choppy layers, here are 12 ways you can wear the look.
Choppy Layers: 12 Layered Styles We are Loving
1. Beachy Waves
Using the right products can enhance the texture of your hair. Scrunch in Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray, and your layers will look like you spent the day at the beach.
2. Baby Beehive
Why not play with your layers and create a baby beehive. Those long layers can be teased into perfection.
3. Choppy Layers and Micro Fringe
Pair your long layers with a micro fringe that ends just at your hairline.
4. Updated Grunge
Grunge this time around is polished and street style chic. To get that piece-y look, use a styling wax on your hair.
5. Angled Choppy Layers
Ask your stylist for your layers to be cut on imperfect angles and create a messy vibe.

Now that your hair has layers, you can create wispy, romantic half up half down styles like the one above.
8. Go Creative with Color
Show off your new cut with a creative hair color like this pretty pastel pink. Not ready for a new color just yet? Test drive the look with a wig instead.

9. Full Fringe and Choppy Layers
Create a sense of balance by having a full fringe and layers that start at your jawline; they create a pretty face-framing effect.
10. Choppy Layers and Loose Waves
You might find that once you add choppy long layers to your hair, it has a bit of curl or wave. To get more waviness in your hair, use your flat iron to create luscious waves. Nexxus Styling Comb Thru Finishing Mist holds your style, yet lets your waves bounce.
Change up your look by doing balayage on your hair. The hand-painted color can be applied on the ends, or all over.
12. Lob It
Add structure to your style with a lob that brushes just below your shoulders. Go for a middle part to change it up.
