How to Style Textured Layers with Long Hair


Add layers to your long hair for a new, updated style and a more natural silhouette.

Balayage Haircut

Balayage is an effective and less damaging way to lighten your hair than highlights or all-over coloring. It creates natural-looking gradients of color that only require touch-ups once or twice annually. Consider adding a caramel brown balayage blend for an understated face-framing effect. Use color-treated hair products to avoid fading.

Inverted Layers

This cut is excellent for adding volume and movement to long hair. Contrasting shorter and longer layers creates an appealing contrast that complements any facial structure beautifully.

Curtain Bangs

The curtain bangs look is a timeless classic that works on every face shape and hair texture. It adds dimension and movement without being overly formal or overdone. Pair with long textured layers for a stylish look.

Feathered Layers

Feathered layers reduce bulk and add texture to long locks. Pair with curtain bangs for a boho chic style. Kate Hudson is known for her gorgeous feathered layers.

Afro Layers

Afro layers work beautifully on natural Afro-textured hair, providing a versatile style. Rihanna and Alicia Keys rock this layered look with their natural hair.
