There are so many ways to create a layered hairstyle.

  • Stages: This is one of the most popular techniques for creating a layered effect and is particularly flattering on mid-length and mid-length hair. Steps typically appear more defined and allow for the impression of movement and momentum;
  • Layers: Subtle layers are created by sectioning different sections of hair at different lengths. The mixture of these layers ensures that they do not appear obvious. This subtly adds volume, strength and texture to the hair. A layered cut is perfect for fine or medium-length hair and adds body and style.
