Latest Hairstyles for Girls with Layers
We have compiled a list of layered hairstyles for girls that will be huge this year.
1. Layered Bob with Side Bangs
Side bangs are still very much in demand, though the severity and super pointy ends of the early 00s fashion statement are gone, the utility of the style remains. Side bangs are easier to grow out, more forgiving between trims, yet still, add interest and shape to your style. Combined with layering this haircut for girls is really fluid.
2. Long Layers with Centre Parting
Long hair and a center parting, whilst simple, can verge on a little too simple, and dare we say…boring? The addition of layers really add texture and depth to the hair and move the simple style from the realms of boring into a classic.
3. Shoulder Length Wavy Layers
Layered haircuts for girls should look to enhance your style rather than become it, if you have natural waves or curls, or like to regularly add them, let your stylist know and they can cut accordingly. The waves in this style compliment the layers themselves for a real double whammy of texture.
4. Long Layered Curly Hair
If your hair is naturally this curly then it’s best to have it cut by someone who really specializes in cutting curly hair. Curls simply don’t behave the same way as straight hair and why should they? A stylist that specializes in, or is experienced in, dealing with curls will know how to cut layers that make your curls look amazing and do away with any frizz or puffiness they are prone to.
5. Choppy Layers with Colors
Cutting layers into your hair can be a way to play up other aspects of your style. For example, layered hairstyles for girls can be combined with color to give a real dose of personality. Here, the texture of the layers adds depth to the color that could not be achieved on the hair of all one length and the choppiness of the layers is a style in and of itself.
6. Straight Bangs and Long Layers
Adding layers to long hair might feel a bit counter-intuitive when you see long lengths of hair falling to the floor, but it can also play up the length of your hair by making it look healthier. If your hair is naturally thin layers can boost the appearance of volume, whereas if you have thick hair adding layers can thin it out and make it easier to manage.
