    Layered Haircuts for Your Hair Type

    Long Layered Hairstyle with Bangs

    Layered Haircuts Make Style

    Salon owner and hairdresser Alana Nelson, blogs about hair styling and layered haircuts.  Alana says, “It’s not a hairstyle without layers!”

    Layered haircuts are the most requested haircuts we are asked to do in the hair salon. But most clients aren’t really sure what constitutes the layered haircuts they are drawn to. Unless you have one length hair that just gets trimmed across the bottom, chances are you have one of the many types of layered haircuts.

    If your hair is too thin, too floppy or just doesn’t do what you want it to, it’s because you don’t have the right type of layered haircut for your face shape and hair texture. So here’s the basic Do’s and Don’ts for you to watch out for:

    DON’T be afraid — I know you fine haired ladies (me included) feel like you need to hang on to all your hair, but trust me when I say the right type of layered haircuts WILL create volume!

    DO try hairstyles with bangs — full layered bangs. Wispy bangs will only accentuate your fine hair and make you look indecisive as to whether you wanted them or not.

    DO find a good hairdresser — Locate people with fine hair that have great layered haircuts and try out their hairdresser. You are bound to find a good fit!  Fine hair is less forgiving of bad haircuts, especially bad layered haircuts!

    DO get layered haircuts if you have thick hair — Layered haircuts will give thick hair shape and is the only way to keep it under some kind of control. A great layered haircut will thin out your hairstyle in just the right places, framing your face instead of hiding it AND unquestionably shortening your hair styling time!  See, much better, with layered haircuts you’ve just lost a few pounds, the easy way and that neck pain from your thick heavy hair, is gone, voila!

    DO you know layers can create length! — That’s right, layered haircuts can make your hair look longer. Your length comes from the hair in the nape section, so if you cut layers you expose that section a get a long cascading effect.

    DON’T go overboard — with short layers or you could end up impersonating an 80’s mullet.

    Layered haircuts can be the difference between an average and an awesome looking haircut. So go forth and check to see if your layered haircut is working for or against you.



    1. If you can recommend or publish a Hair Salon in Dallas to get a good layered hair cut for a thick long hair I would really appreciate it.
