Contrary to what most women think, there are many ways to style a layered haircut. Read on to find out the best layered cut for you.

Before we get into that, here are a few ways you can cut your own hair in layers.

Layers At The Back

  • Comb your hair and detangle it thoroughly. If you have straight or fine textured hair, use a brush. If you have curly hair, use a wide-toothed comb.
  • Flip your hair over and in front of you and tie it into a ponytail two inches below your front hairline.
  • Remove both the elastic bands, flip your hair back and brush it.
  • Comb your hair and detangle it thoroughly. If you have straight or fine hair, use a brush. If you have curly hair, use a wide-toothed comb.
  • Leaving out the front section, clip up all your hair. You can also take some hair from the sides.
  • Allow the hair to fall on your face and brush it a few times.
 
  • Brush your hair again and tie another elastic band where you want to cut your hair.
  • Using a pair of scissors, cut your hair above the second elastic band. Place two fingers on either side of your hair, spreading it out evenly, and cut it straight across.
  • If you want to feather your ends, hold the scissors straight and cut upwards. Be careful while doing this. I would recommend getting your hair feathered by a professional.

Here are some gorgeous layer haircut styles

1. Partial Highlighted Layers

Layers with lighter highlights help frame your face, adding more dimension to it. The light colors make it look slimmer. Layers also make your hair look voluminous and thick.

2. Champagne Layers

Layers with curls at the end can make your jawline appear softer than it is. If you have a square or diamond face, consider this layered hairstyle. The curls also make your hair look full and your face thin.

3. Wavy Layers

These standard layers help add volume and texture to your hair. If you have straight hair and your cheeks are the fullest part of your face, consider styling your hair in waves. This step will give your hair a fuller appearance.

4. Long Multi-Layers

Long hair with multiple layers adds dimension to your hair texture, making it look bouncy and thick.

5. Free Layers

Light layers on top and dark layers at the bottom help in framing your face. The light layers at the top help streamline your facial shape while the dark layers at the bottom help sharpen your jawline. This gives your face a chiseled look.
