9 Layered Haircuts and Hairstyles to Copy Immediately
Need a hair cut but feeling completely and totally uninspired? We get it,and we've been there-until we discovered the magical powers of layering. Sure,you've probably had some layers since you were a preteen, but we're not talking about the long,blunt,blah layers of middle school, but instead the choppy,face-framing,eye-skimming layers that turn bobs and ponytails into works of art.And to get you inspired to cut your own.
1. Taraji P. Henson's Texturized Bob
Henson opted for choppy layers and thick, side-swept bangs to create an anled bob that looks full, not frumpy.
2. Gigi Hadid's Waterfall Curls
Curls on non-layered hair can look juvenile, but Hadid does it right with a ton of long layers that lend themselves to a cascade of curls.
3. Sarah Hyland's Subtle Texture
Keep a lob from falling flat by cutting a bunch of long layers that start at the jawline and gradually thin out towards the ends. Lightly curl random sections around your head, raking through the curls while they're still warm, to add even more body and definition.
4. Dakota Johnson's Layered Bangs
Wispy bangs that melt into long, face-framing layers automatically add definition to Johnson's face.
5. Gabrielle Union's Glossy Curls
Long, thick hair can weigh down a lithe face, so make like Gabrielle Union and thin out the bulk with feathered layers that fall softly around your cheeks and shoulders.
6. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Bedhead Texture
This look is all about the purposefully mussed-up texture, which is all thanks to the choppy ends that are tousled and slightly staticky.
7. Naomi Campbell's Eye-Skimming Bangs
If you have super-long bangs like Campbell's, start your first set of layers at your chin or longer to keep your hair from looking like a '70s shag.
8. Sarah Jessica Parker's Long, Straight Layers
SJP knows that great hair is all about the layers, which is why long, straight, and tapered hair has been her signature style for years.
9. Kate Winslet's Wispy Waves
If you're blessed with thicker, wavy hair like Winslet's, ask for shorter face-framing layers and side-swept bangs to give a lighter look to your hair.
