How to Add Movement to Your Mane With the Best Layered Haircuts

Layers are an incredibly versatile addition to all hair types and textures, including long and thick manes. Women with long locks can use layers to add movement, volume, shape, and structure while reducing the weight in their hair. Celebrity hairstylists Kim and Velasquez emphasize the importance of selecting layers tailored to your hair type and face shape. Here are their signature layered haircuts for a polished and chic look.

Long Layers

– Layering techniques work on all hair lengths, from long cascading layers to shorter face-framing pieces.

– Long, straight strands can look lifeless, so consider adding layered hairstyles to add dimension and color techniques to showcase the beauty of your layers.

– Opt for longer layers with slightly curled ends for an undone beachy vibe. Pair with subtle balayage coloring for an elevated touch.

Inverted Layers

– Inverted layers frame your face beautifully and make it appear thinner.

– Angled lob is a long layered haircut for fine or thin hair, adding volume and movement.

– Apply volumizer to damp hair before blow-drying with a round brush. Use a curling iron to form large vertical curls and finish with light-holding spray.
