Hair Layers And Hair Cuts

Many people with long hair love the beauty and flexibility of hair layers.  When executed properly, layers carved into the hair feels light around the face.

Hair layers also look soft, not messy.  Celebrities who have access to the best hairdressers love layers.

What is layered hair?  Its a hair style which gives the illusion of length and volume using long hair for the illusion of length and short hair for volume, this way it is easy to style and manage.

Hair is arranged into layers, with the top layers (those that grow nearer the crown) cut shorter than the layers beneath. This allows the tips of the top layers to blend apparently seamlessly with layers beneath.

Some hair layered versions involve making clear distinction between the various layers so that they don't blend seamlessly.  In some cases, hair color may be specifically applied to certain layers but not others to achieve a very distinctive effect.

Not all hair is compatible with layering.  Tresses which are naturally curly or wavy may not be appropriate for layered hairstyles since removing hair weight may alter the natural curl and wave pattern.

A layered hair cut is created by lifting tresses which are perpendicular to the head and cutting it straight across. Also quick layered cuts can be achieved by pulling the hair up into a high ponytail and compact cutting it.

People who are haircut-phobic may love layered hairstyles because it allows the length to be retained without losing inches.

If you are lusting after hair layers, ask your stylist to cut pieces varying from nose level to chin or shoulder length, depending on the length of your hair.

The key to a great layered haircut is finding a hair cutter who is skilled at created layers.

Not every hairstylist is a master at layers.  Before you take the plunge ask to see your hair pro's book of layered cuts.

It would also be helpful once you see their book to provide them with images of layers you're interested in.
