Whether your hair is long or short, hair layers can transform your look from basic girl-next-door to style-savvy va-va-voom in minutes! Forget about the boring old approach to layering hair though – here are a few contemporary varieties that you’ve got to try.


The Texturised Bob


This short hairstyle gives personality to a classic haircut, with choppy layers and a side-swept fringe helping to create texture.  Hair with layers and bangs has never looked so fierce!


Feathered Curls


Who said hair layers are only for ladies with straight hair? Subtle layers combined with feathering for curly hair can help to frame your face and add a sense of glam to your look.

Bedhead Beauty


This ‘French girl’ inspired hair layering aesthetic means you can rock those just-rolled-out-of-bed tresses with confidence! Keep the ends choppy for that trademark tousled, ‘au-naturel’ vibe.


Highlighted Heaven


You can draw even more attention to your layered haircut with the help of bold highlights at the ends of your locks, rather than on the lengths of your hair.


Sultry 70’s Layers


Think flippy bangs and brazen layers that start at the chin that’ll have you looking like you just stepped out of a Charlie’s Angels film.


With so many different hair layering trends to try, how do you know which one will suit you best? We recommend visiting your stylist for an expert opinion. He or she will be able to take your face shape, hair length and texture into account to suggest a style that is certain to make you look and feel like a goddess.
