Layers for Your Hair Texture

Layered Hairstyles
How will you look in a layered hairstyle ? Find out by trying on layers in our virtual hairstyling studio!

When styled with rollers or a curling iron, a layered hairstyle packs a chic punch. Layers freshen up your look and add volume and movement to hair. They can help to tame a thick mane or fatten up a fine one. Face shape determines which layers are best for you, but so does your hair texture. Here's a quickie roundup of tips to know before you make the cut. Try on layered hairstyles in our virtual hairstyle studio.

Curly hair takes on a circular shape as it grows so the goal is to use layers to shape the sides and eliminate the "pouf." Strategically sculpted layers cut in uniform length will liven up your curls and make them more manageable. However, too many layers will make it look like parts of the hair are missing or expose the scalp, especially if your hairstyle is short. Talk to your stylist about the best options for your hair type.

Limp, fine hair lies flat and lifeless or appears barely-there. Layers will help, but you don't want too many or they can make matters worse. Long, vertical surface layers snipped ever-so-unevenly will add texture to fine hair and round brush styling will give you instant volume. Consider having only the ends of your hair detailed to frame your face.

Straight, thick hair can usually use a boost in the form of chunky layers with softly razored ends. Thick hair can pull off long or short layers that are uniform in length or a blunt cut.

Avoid too much layering or razoring if your hair is coarse, bearing in mind that the ends can become unruly and difficult to control. Instead, have your stylist layer only the hair that creates unwanted volume around the face. Layers will help you sculpt the silhouette you want. The sleeker, the better.

I love cutting my own hair with a razor. Only issue is, I've been getting split ends. Is there some sort of hair product that I can use to soothe down the frizz on my hair ends? thankssss -barbara This comment has been removed.
