Layered Shoulder Length Hairstyles
The Dreamy Wavy Layers
The dreamy wavy layers is a very graceful hairstyle to be sported by women. This look suits both formal and casual occasions and works beautifully on all face types and face cuts. To get this look, your hair should first be detangled using a wide toothed comb. Comb your hair gently as you work out the tangles and then apply a little bit of mousse to settle the hair.
Your hair should already be cut in layers if you wish to sport this look. It is preferred that these layers are long and overlapping so that is contributes a soft look to the hair. Now blow dry the hair to get smooth and wavy layers by dividing the hair into several sections. Once done, set your hair as you wish to. You can place also the hair over one shoulder if you desire to sport a side swept hairstyle. Complete the look by spraying a light hold misty hairspray.
The Sharp Cut Layers
The sharp cut layers give an edgy and sharp look to one’s appearance. These layers are sported in shoulder length hair and are cut sharp or in the form of steps to make them look visible.
It is advisable that your hair is straight and sleek for this look as it makes the layers all the more defined. You can even flat iron your hair using a heated straightener if you do not possess straight hair naturally. Pair this look with blunt fringes or a loose side fringe.
The Messy Side Braid
The messy side braid is an innovative twist on the neat and simple side braid. The fact that your hair has been cut in layers is what gives the braid a messy and care free look. For this hairstyle, your hair should be shoulder length in nature as it would be impossible to make a braid if the hair is too short.
Now, take the hair, detangle it and then divide the hair into three equal sections. After doing so, take all the three sections to one side and braid them simply to get a long simple braid. As the hair is cut in layers, you will see that the braid is loose and a bit messy which is perfectly the look we wish to sport. Secure the braid with an elastic band once it is complete.
The Super Volume Layers
The super volume layers is a classic retro look. To get this look the hair is cut in short layers at the top to get a voluminous look and long hair towards the bottom to get a long and tapering look.
