Posted by Cool Long Hair Styles on July 28, 2009

Layered hair styles are versatile, trendy, and sophisticated. Whether you have long or short hair, bobs or shoulder tresses, layers can work for a vast majority of people and on many hairstyles. The reason for its versatility is based on the fact that layers can be customized to mesh well with a person’s hairstyle and shape of face.

Perfect Long Hair StylesApart from its versatility, layers have many other advantages. For instance, adding layers can modernize an old style without too drastic of a change, and layers can be both flirty and elegant, making them appropriate for any age. What’s more is that different layers can add natural volume to hair your hair without the use of chemicals and layers can also help hair that is damaged by split ends since layering requires cutting these split and broken ends off. This gives hair a more polished appearance. Creating layers can lighten very thick, heavy hair, allowing its natural waves to appear in medium and long styles and layering can be of particular advantage for those who suffer from migraine headaches since layering can give some relief with the lighter styles it creates.

But while layered hair can work well with most types of hair and hairstyles, there are some drawbacks that you may want to evaluate before layering your hair. Firstly, very curly hair does not layer well, because the shorter layers tend to curl too much and this disrupts the layered look creating a scruffy appearance. Secondly, folks who like to change their styles frequently may not want to have their hair layered as it can take quite a while to grow out them out, depending on how fast your hair grows and how short your layers are.

The best way to grow out layers is to keep the bottom layer at an unchanging length, allowing the upper layers time to catch up with it. But it can get very boring and tedious and many people get frustrated by the wait and work. Also, if layers are done in such a way as to enhance the shape of your face it can make your features stand out too starkly. And while layers can be cut in many different lengths, the best range for layers is to keep them below the earlobe on long hair and below the eye on short hair, otherwise they may look out of control.

Overall, layered hair works for most people. It adds shape, volume, texture and structure to hair, but as with any hairstyle, it’s probably wiser if you sought some professional assistance before deciding to layer your hair.
