A layered hair cut can be a great look for any woman, and is a perfect way to show off your personal style.

A layered cut is often the perfect choice.There are so many different ways to make this flexible cut work for you.Since there are so many ways to wear this cut, it goes easily from casual to formal.Your layered hair cut will look great whether you're out on the town, busy at work, hitting the gym, lunching with friends, or just hanging out at home.

For women with fine or thin hair, this can be a particularly flattering cut.Having your hair stylist add layers will make hair move more, increase volume, and allow the hair to be worn in a variety of trendy styles.


If you have short hair, your stylist can show you how to use various products, such as mousse, gel and even new options such as hair "putty", which comes in a tub rather than a can or tube, and can be used to sculpt short hair into a variety of modern styles.Whether worn naturally or enhanced with styling tools, a short layered cuts maintains its cute appeal whatever the situation, and it's so easy to care for.Fine featured women often find this look particularly flattering.

For a more casual style, pull hair back in a loose ponytail, allowing stray pieces to escape and frame your face.This look can work for a more formal occasion as well - pull hair into a bun rather than a ponytail, then use a curling iron to create ringlets out of loose strands.
