With all the retro vibe popping up lately — cue in all your favourite looks from Y2K, including low-rise pants, crop tops, and velvet tracksuits — layered hair is once again in the spotlight for spring 2023. Because layers can add texture to thin hair, while enhancing short or longer hair to give it a beautiful new twist.
Layered hair took off sometime in the 70s, when women wanted to break away from the traditional blunt haircuts. One of the first celebrities to show off a great mane of layered hair was Farrah Fawcett. It continued to evolve throughout the 80s and 90s, with actors like Jennifer Aniston and Meg Ryan sporting iconic layered looks. Remember “the Rachel”?
The beauty of layered hair is that it can be customized by any of our super talented hairstylists at Pure to suit your style and personality. Like every haircut and hair colour we create for you! Let’s take a look at some of the current variations on the style.
Different Styles of Layers
Long Layers: This style features long layers that start at the chin and blend into the rest of the hair. A great option if you who want to add volume and movement to long hair, and just perfect if you want to move away from glass hair with a single length.
Short Layers: These are perfect for those with short hair or a bob. They add texture and shape to the hair, making it look fuller. A fun way to add variety to your bob. And, yes, that type of haircut is still definitely on trend for summer 2023.
Face-Framing Layers: Like the name indicates, this type of layering technique features layers that frame the face, drawing attention to the cheekbones and jawline. Think of these layers like the haircut equivalent of “the money piece,” those balayage and highlights that instantly bring more luminosity to the face.
Tips and Tricks for Care and Maintenance
To keep your layered hair looking awesome 24/7, there are a few things you should do:
-Go for regular trims: To maintain the shape and style of your layers in tip-top shape, it’s important to get regular trims. Remember, there is a fine line between cool-looking layers and messy hair.
-Use the right products: If you have thicker hair, you will want to invest in some quality products (a little goes a long way) to help control frizz and add high-watt shine. Fine hair? Your BFFs are volumizing lotions, to keep up with the great styling options you now have with layers.
Choose the volume you want: The great thing about layers is that you can go a little or a long way to add texture and volume. It’s all up to you. Our hairstylists are there to help and guide you in achieving the style you like. Have fun, and enjoy flipping your hair as much as you feel like it!
