8 Layered Haircuts To Update Your Look Without Sacrificing Length

Long Shag The shag persists. However, softer layers are modernizing the jagged cut. “Layers provide texture by nature, but they don't have to be severe,” explains New Jersey hairstylist and Renaissance Salon & Spa owner Jennifer Korab.

Curve Cut Curve cuts became internet favorites quickly. Celebrities like Priyanka Chopra and Beyoncé have worn it. However, Jennifer Aniston popularized it in the late 1990s. It has long C-shaped layers like her renowned “Rachel” cut.

Soft Butterfly Cut Looking to increase natural curls? What about a gentle butterfly cut? Similar to the original, this haircut emphasizes volume. However, putting little layers throughout your hair helps define and shape natural waves. 

‘90s Bob Bobs are eternal. Korab says the ‘90s bob is popular right now, although there are various varieties. This distinctive style frames the face with curve cut pieces. Korab advises knowing your facial shape to wear layered shorts. 

Long Curve Cut Curve cuts are perpetual gifts. This haircut improves with time, unlike those that require awkward growth. It's easy to style and maintain at home. One catch: cuts. You should trim your ends periodically to avoid breakage, but Korab suggests doing it more often with longer layers.

Textured Lob Bobs seem sleek with straight ends, but sharp angular cuts add authority. “In this shoulder-grazing style, long layers add texture and enhance movement,” says Korab. She advises using a good heat protectant while straightening hair frequently. 

Layered Curtain Bangs Layers benefit bangs too. Curtain cuts frame the face and are popular with many haircuts. Though they're normally worn with long hair, they can volumize medium-length cuts. Wolves are versatile, as shown by this soft cut.

Soft-curve layers Instead of a curve cut, this style uses soft C-shaped layers to provide volume. Korab believes the spherical silhouette gives hair a natural contour and fullness. She tells TZR it's functional despite being trendy.
