Layered haircuts are hardly a thing of the past. Every decade since we can remember has seen its fair share of beauties who have put on this particular hairstyle and, frankly, we can not get enough of it. It is a very uncomplicated and easy-care style that women love everywhere. Plus, it will work wonders for those with thin hair. Here are a selection of 45 stunning layered haircuts that will inspire you the next time you visit your hairdresser.
1. Layered Haircuts for Thick Hair
If you have thick hair then a good haircut can help you. The shorter strands will make your hair thinner so your hairstyle looks more balanced than bushy. Talk to your stylist to see what works best for you.
2. Beige blonde layered haircuts
This blonde, shoulder-length, multi-layered bob is truly the stuff of dreams. It was all the rage a few years ago, when either one wore one or wanted one. We really hope that there will be a comeback soon, because we miss it so much.
3. Ombre Layered Haircuts
One way to highlight the layers in your hair is to mix them with a little bit of ombre. This is a natural dark brown that melts to a light cinnamon with sandy spikes. Note that every layered strand seems to have a different color.
4. Chopped stratified haircuts
Your hairdresser will receive these choppy ends with the help of a razor. Professional tip – best if you do not try this alone at home. In that case, you should leave it to the pros for a smooth surface like this.
5. Diamond Layered Haircuts
You guessed it. The name comes from the color more than anything else. It’s a stunning blond shade called the diamond. You can combine it with a little dramatic make-up, like a dull red lip, some false eyelashes and glittering silver eyeshadow.
6. Muscat Layered Haircuts
Speaking of fantastic hair colors, here is a delicious and sweet nutmeg that looks almost natural. The key is here in the details. If you look closely, you can see the tiny strands of hellblond walking through them.
7. Sweet Cinnamon Layered Haircuts
We stay in the spice department for a shade that resembles sweet cinnamon. It is brown mixed with blond and just a touch of strawberry red to give it an interesting and fiery atmosphere. It is one of those colors that looks different in the shade and in the sun. Impressive!
8. The inverted curls
Another hairstyle that has forgotten this time, but which you can now easily revive thanks to your layered haircuts, are the inverted curls. You can use your curling iron or you can just tie your hair and sleep until morning.
9. Bohemian Layered Haircuts
A well-designed, multi-layered hairstyle can easily be transformed into a feathery boho cut with the right styling. In this way, you can instantly create your favorite music festival look by adding a few accessories and a summery dress.
10. The Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez has such a long and luxurious mane and is a big fan of layered haircuts. She always stays true to the dark chocolate brown that suits her eyes and underlines her skin tone and we applaud her for that.
11. The Lily Collins
Another black-haired Hollywood favorite is Lily Collins. She is also a fan of layered haircuts. Her long, dark hair is almost always disheveled, as she loves the bedhead look. You can copy their style with a little texturizing spray.
12. The Lily Aldridge
The second lily on our list of layered haircuts is a Victoria’s Secret Angel. And she is a real inspiration when it comes to supermodel hair. Just look at those maroon waves, with a few blond strands!
13. Dark Coffee Layered Haircuts
How much do you love coffee? As much as it will make your hair color inspiration? This is a natural looking ombre inspired by the dark brew. It starts with black coffee at the roots and it slowly sinks in latte towards the tops.
14. Shaggy Layered Haircuts
You can not possibly get a shift cut without being a little shaggy. That’s all the beauty of the layers. All you have to do is take a handful of hair wax or hair foam and apply it to your hair to rinse it.
15. Layered haircuts for thin hair
If you have thin hair, then layers are what you need. They give your locks extra volume, as well as depth and architecture for the entire hairstyle. Scatter them a bit for more body.
16. Feathery Layered Haircuts
A feather-light, multi-layered haircut is all you need when looking for a hairstyle that can frame your face. Some of the shorter strands in the front will act as a pony to contour, lengthen and slim your facial features.
17. Layered haircuts from the 2000s
Do you remember this little gem? The tip pointed outward, the platinum blonde grazed some beige and had darker roots, even the medium length. This was a popular hairstyle in the 2000s that has since declined a bit.
18. Curly Layered Haircuts
Curly hair needs a lot of work and a lot of care. We all know that. Apart from that, we usually have to find a hairstyle that gives it a shape. A layer cut, done professionally, can lead to exactly this result.
19. The Rosie Huntington-Whitely
The second supermodel on our list is none other than Jason Statham’s wife. The blonde beauty is very partial to layered haircuts as they help to balance her deeply angular face and chiseled jaw. Oh, and those eyes …
20. Layered haircuts of medium length
Medium length plus layers could simply be the best choice for the summer. It’s short enough that you’re not hot, but long enough to braid it or whip it into a ponytail. Plus, the layers will be perfect for a few beach waves.
21. Long layered haircuts
If your hair is long or super long, you certainly do not want it to be boring. If you add some layers, you can avoid this burden. Moreover, if you have some highlights, lowlights or peekaboos, the layers will bring them out.
22. Straight stratified haircuts
If you have a great layered cut right now and you want to take him around then it’s just the thing. Straight hair is like the X-ray of a haircut. It shows every piece, every strand of hair and where it should stand.
23. The praise
Oh, we love a good praise. And this layered lets us just burst through the door of our stylist to get it ourselves. This tanned blonde with golden stripes and a straight, medium peak is everything we need for our beach look.
24. Add some texture
Imagine how great this layered hairstyle looks on the move. The thickness of everything plus the variety of blonde nuances you can notice in it is a kinetic dream. The choppy ends do not hurt a bit!
25. The Kaley Cuoco
Do you remember when Kaley Cuoco was really young and she just started to become the pretty but squishy neighbor of the Big Bang Theory? That’s the hairdo she wore then. A sweet, girl next door superimposed blonde praise.
26. The Kendell Jenner
Supermodel and reality TV star Kendell Jenner has herself gone through some haircuts because she’s such a beauty queen. However, we believe she looked best in this medium-length, dark, feathery, layered version. Law?
27. The Kim K
Kendell’s iconic sister Kim Kardashian also loves layered haircuts. Here she is in a honey blond with burnt caramel roots. Her hair is smooth and the lovely blonde and pink lip accentuates her coffee-colored eyes.
28. The Chrissy doughs
Family ties continue with Chrissy doughs on our list of layered haircuts. Granted, the supermodel is not exactly related to Kendell and Kris, but they are BFFs. Chrissy’s mane is also layered, highlighting the cheekbones of this world.
29. The Rachel Weisz
We quickly jump across the pond to visit the elegant and sophisticated Rachel Weisz. Her layered haircuts are very subtle, but still nicer. Her makeup is also at eye level, with a dark smoky eye and a dull natural lip.
30. The Emilia Clarke
It’s hard to find a television actress more revered than the mother of dragons, Danny the Unburnt. In real life, Emilia Clarke has chocolate-brown hair, medium-length and perfectly layered.
31. The Penelope Cruz
This hot Latina is everyone’s dream. All men want to be with her and all girls want their hair. She wears a slight ombre to this milky almond dream she calls hair and just loves her color and cut.
32. The Catherine Zeta-Jones
Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has always worn the same color. It’s an ashy dark brown highlighting her caramel taffy eyes. As far as haircuts go, she has gone through some, but we love these layered the best.
33. Gray pony
Most often, layered haircuts also contain a splendid array of pony. Adding an unconventional color to this is no way to stand out from the crowd. Keep the makeup at this minimum. Here are some more ideas for gray hair.
34. The Phoebe Buffay
It is impossible to separate actress Lisa Kudrow from her role as Phoebe Buffay in “Friends,” just as it is impossible to separate Phoebe from the oversized haircut she wore in the show’s early seasons. Long live the 90s!
35. The Leighton Meester
Thanks to her role in Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester has long been a style icon for millions of young girls everywhere. And that includes the choices she made with her hair. She was always impassive to beach waves and a natural bronde.
36. The Jennifer Aniston
Since talking about Phoebe, it has been impossible not to mention Rachel. Although Jennifer Aniston has outgrown the haircut that has literally made her famous all over the world, she still loves layers in her hair.
37. The top node
Another amazing way in which you can show the layers in your hair would be to go for a top knot. Make it chaotic and casual and let a few strands fall out of it. This works especially well if you have roots that are darker than the rest of your hair.
38. The Jane Fonda
Immortal goddess Jane Fonda is here to demonstrate what layered haircuts should look like for mature women. She wears a long pixie cut, something between a goblin and a short bob, and all the layers have appeared.
39. The Sienna Miller
Her sunny blonde shows up perfectly in this medium length cut, which Sienna effortlessly wears. The beauty of these layered haircuts is that they require minimal maintenance. All you need is a bit of hair wax to hold everything in place, or some sea salt spray to make this textured mermaid look.
40. Blueberries and cream
The reason why this hairstyle is so called is pretty obvious. The gorgeous color combination consists of an abundance of purples that varies from blueberry dark to pastel purple. They all resemble fruits and cream.
41st autumn copper
How do you prepare for the fall? One of the biggest trends is copper colors. They are very shiny and give multi-layered hairstyles that they need to get a nice shiny finish. This is a classic layer cut that ends in a sharp V over the back.
42nd round shifts
Another style based entirely on how we wore our hair in the 2000s is this. All you have to do is pick up some of the shorter strands that sit on your mane and use your curler to invert them.
43. The jaw length Bob
The bob haircut has been a big fashion trend for a few years and shows no signs of yielding. If you are interested in finding out more ideas about this particular hairstyle, here is a special piece dedicated to it.
44. The V-shape
If you have very thick hair, the long V-shape helps to remove some of that thickness. Its main attribute is that it gets thinner as it progresses your back, making it look like you have far less hair than you actually have.
45. Mature layered haircuts
Even if you have passed a certain age now, that does not mean that you should be afraid to shift. Contact your hairdresser and find the best hairstyle that suits your age, face shape and personal preference.
46. Sunflower Yellow Layered Haircuts
One of the top trends of the year are non-traditional colors. You can rock the summer in this sunflower yellow, which has just the right amount of brunettes at the roots. In this way it looks a bit more natural and also replicates real sunflowers.
47. Bob Layered Haircuts
A voluminous bob can be easily obtained if you add some layers. It all depends on the type of hair you have, as well as your type of face. Talk to your hairdresser about your options because he can give you the best advice.
48. The Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron has been officially recognized as one of the most beautiful actresses of all time and has long been a fan of Pixie cuts. She carried both the boyish guy and this longer and wavy, multi-layered guy.
49. shades of pink
Layered haircuts are always best flaunted by highlights. If you are wearing a solid block of color, the different lengths of the strands may not be as visible. However, distinct and strong shades will show them perfectly.
50. Shaggy Layered Haircuts
This Shaggy Lob or Long Bob is a perfect example of a thin hair solution. If this is the case, you can always try a shaggy slice cut as an optical illusion for fuller and voluminous hair.
