Haircuts with shoulder-length layers never go out of style. I mean, seriously, this signature haircut has been around for years now, and we don’t see it going away any time soon. It’s a classic cut that looks great on every woman- no matter how old, how tall or short, or how round your face is. Also, it’s a ‘do that can fit in anywhere- no matter where you work, where you live, or who your friends are.
That’s why shoulder-length layers are always a safe and beautiful choice. And, TBH, we will never stop loving those beautiful mixed-length locks. So, get ready to book your next salon appointment.
Here are 5 reasons why haircuts with shoulder-length layers are the best:
Haircuts with shoulder-length layers always look polished and put together. Instead of your hair just being one length, it creates angles that make your hair look chic and professional all the time. It says, ‘hey, I care about what I look like…but, I don’t have time to fuss because I’m a busy lady.”
These shoulder-length layers are ideal for the businesswoman of NYC because it’s a professional-looking relaxed cut that doesn’t need too much upkeep. Because, really, who has time for that with all the hustle and bustle?
One of the greatest things about shoulder-length layered cuts is the texture it brings to your hair. These angled pieces of hair create full-bodied texture that does an amazing job of framing your face and making your features pop.
If you have a rounder face, you can angle some hair into a side-swept bang to help narrow the look of your face. Or play up your round face by having your stylist create angles that follow the natural flow of your jaw line. Whatever you decide to do, know that this layered texture will do wonders to bring your face into focus.
It’s the Perfect Length
Shoulder-length hair is the perfect amount of hair. It’s girly without being too much of a hassle to work with. You get to show off your beautiful bold locks without the maintence of longer hair.
When you add layers to shoulder-length hair, the cut becomes even more special. It highlights the volume and body of your hair, and creates a fuller look that will only take a quick blow-dry and a bit of mousse to style.
It’s Easy to Manage
The medium length layers that are present in this cut are super easy to manage. It’s not like bangs, where you have to get them trimmed every couple of weeks. These layers will naturally grow out and still remain looking fresh and clean. All you need to worry about is getting your ends trimmed here and there to keep your hair healthy and looking its best.
Another great thing about medium-length layered cuts is how easy it is to brush and style on an everyday basis. If you’re a busy NYGal, then you probably don’t have too much time to fuss in the morning before heading off to work. So, this manageable haircut is ideal for the lady who wants to just brush her hair quick and head out the door.
Haircuts that are shoulder-length are so versatile, which is another reason why this is one of our ultimate go-to styles. This cut is so easy to throw up into a pony if you’re off to the gym, or curl or texture for a night out on the LES.
This style is even great to braid. Sure, there are layers, but braiding with layers is actually not as hard as you think it may be. Especially, if you’re layers are long. If they’re a mixed-length, feel free to leave some strands out for a new signature look that people will be dying to steal.
