Long Layers Haircut

Classic Timeless Versatile

Long layers are a great option if you want to keep your length. With this type of haircut, long layers are blended with your haircut’s length to create movement and add volume. You can add just a few layers to the bottom of your hair for subtle dimension or, for a more dramatic look, extend the layers up the entire length of your hair.

Towel dry your hair, then apply a thickening spray or mousse. Use a round brush and blow dry sections of hair, lifting at the roots and then pulling hair down near the ends. When hair is dry, apply a thermal protectant product. Use a large-barreled curling iron on individual sections of hair, starting at the root and twisting hair around the curling iron. Hold for a few seconds, then release. Repeat until all hair is curled. Gently comb through your curls with your fingers to release the tight curls into gentle waves. Finish your look with hairspray for all-day hold.
