What is layered hair and what does it mean when I ask my stylist for them? Layered hair is when you want to keep length but use shorter hairs to create volume. Lots of people love their length but dislike the flatness and lack of volume on top. It can be used to create as much volume and texture in your hair as you are desiring for a lot less work. It makes it easier to style and manage plus it can be used on all hair types! Here is a picture to show off some layers around the face:
Depending on the hair style and look you want layers can be even shorter and exaggerated.
That, and a flat iron
Now that we have shown three images of layers lets discuss the difference between layers and texture. Often texture is referred to as the thickness or wave pattern one has to their hair. It can also pertain to the amount of thinning a stylist or designer does to someones hair. The hair is pulled up and small amounts of hair are sliced out to make the longer hairs stand up and therefore the hair will also have more body. In effect, the outcome is similar. However, the look is different because the hair has a more “textured” look to it. The stylist has control of how much texture to take out perhaps for thick hair more hair is taken or a little bittaken out for fine hair. It is the same concept as thinning but clients don’t like that word anymore! Plus there are so many more dramatic and fun ways to do it that we really don’t like that word any more either. A good hair stylist is able to texture hair to make it lay in a way that adds weight or take away weight where it is to heavy to make the perfect hair cut.
