Layering vs. Texture
Layering texture or both; 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 desire for less work. It makes it easier to style and manage plus layering 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 helps 😉
Now that we have shown three images of layers lets discuss the difference between layering 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 therefore the hair will 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 so for thick hair more hair is taken or a little is taken for fine hair. 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 haircut.
We at Studio 229 hair design and Spa layer the hair and then add texture for a beautiful hair style that last the longest amount of time and has the best grow out. So in effect the stylist gives layering texture.
