Layered Hair Styles

Layered hair styles and cutting hair into different length will create contrasting looks and provide internal texture. Layering can be used to increase body and volume or it can be used to decrease weight.

Layering adds a new and interesting dynamic to short or medium-length hair. To create modern finish look it's best to use a flat iron to straight the ends and prevent them from flicking out. Reference to samples on this page

Bangs or Not

Sweeping side or heavy and fragile looking fringes (bangs) makes a big difference and are ideal for fashionable and "timeless" hair styles like Dido's hair.
