18 Brightest Medium Layered Haircuts to Light You Up


Layered Haircuts and Face Shapes

The good news is a skillfully done layered haircut can maximally bring your face shape to the ideal oval. If your face is round, the layering for the face-framing locks is going to elongate it visually. Side bangs will go fine with this type of haircut as for a long face, straight bangs, skimming your eye-brows, and out-flicked locks around your face are highly recommended. Girls with oval face shape are the luckiest. They are not restricted and can go for whatever type of layered haircut they desire, and it will look gorgeous.

Styling Tips for Layered Haircuts

This unique haircut is easy to style which is, undoubtedly, a big plus, because you can style your locks yourself at home. A layered haircut looks its best when you make an accent on the tips. You can curl the ends of your tresses with a curling iron or flat-iron your locks with a straightener. Most stylish hairstyles today feature volume at the roots that is achieved with a blow-dryer. Romantic locks slightly fixed with hair-spray are a wonderful idea of a hairstyle for special occasions.

Best Medium Layered Haircuts

Let’s see all that in examples.

#1: The Perfect Bedhead

Layers are a great choice for mid-length hair because they can add volume, depth, and texture, giving you a variety without sacrificing the length. Subtle highlights in medium brown tones are always a nice touch for brunettes!

#2: Feathered V-Layers

This v-layered style reminds us of a horse’s mane flying free in the meadow breeze. Medium layered haircuts are the best of both worlds – a manageable length and enough to work with at the ends. Short feathered layers frame the face, while longer layers in the back draw the eye downward.

#3: Shoulder Length Haircut with Flicked Ends

If your hair’s length is medium to long, consider spicing up your cut with flicked, choppy ends. Layers define and add interest to all hair styles, but flicked ends work especially well if you like the quick rough blow-dry styling. Thick hair types can hold flicked out layers best.

#6: Long Layers for Messy Lob

Lobs may be trendy, but there is a reason why so many women gravitate to this cut. Lobs let you wear your hair ‘short’ while still keeping the length that feels feminine. Try a lob with longer layers instead of a blunt cut to appear playful yet polished instead of severe.

#7: Choppy Waves Ahead, Captain!

Do you want to create a new style with layers? Take this example! The longer side bangs give a bit more height to the top when swept over, and the dimension of the layers is quite eye-catching. Use a very light blonde highlight all over to create a look that is bright and bouncy!

#8: Mid-Length Haircut With Side Layers

Layers don’t have to go all over your head to add the desired dimension. A beautiful mid-length style with side layers can frame your face in a complimenting way, especially if your neck is long or your face shape is oval.

#9: Feathered Layers for Thick Hair

Feathered layers are the boldest in layered haircuts. It works well for ladies with thick and textured hair because with fine hair, this look can fall flat. Your stylist can accomplish the style by creating layers with a razor.

If your hair already has a natural wave to it, then try out some wispy layers. This cut will offer the right amount of texture without overpowering the predominant style of your hair. It works especially well for mid-length locks with dimensional highlights.

#11: Medium Hairstyle with Layered Bottom

Straight hair can benefit from layers mostly when they are concentrated at the bottom of the hair length. If your hair is especially thick to top it off, ask your stylist to cut your ends with layers to keep it bright yet impactful, not heavy.

#12: Medium Feathered Haircut for Thick Hair

A medium layered hair style is a beloved friend of thick women’s hair. Your hair won’t appear heavy with this type of fresh cut. Layers hold especially well with thick hair and add some much needed movement to an otherwise blocky look.

#13: Two-Tier Lob for Thick Hair

If fine hair needs added dimension, then thick hair has some room to play around. A two-tier lob gives off a polished appearance that avoids choppy layers. If you wear your hair straight, consider this unique cut the next time you’re at the salon.

#14: Point Cut Bob with Caramel Balayage

In case you’ve got plain-looking straight hair or a blunt hairstyle you are bored to wear, soften it up with a point cut bob. By cutting the hair at an angle, it instantly appears textured. A point cut bob looks great on a variety of hair hues, but balayages in fresh colors like caramel seem to be particularly light and bright nowadays.

#15: V-Cut Layers for Thick Hair

A great option in medium length layered haircuts is V cut layers. Hair is kept long in the back as the layers surrounding your face gradually draw in towards the back of the head. Medium long hair holds this style best as length is necessary to let v-cut layers shine.

#16: Swoopy Layers for Voluminous and Dynamic Hair

The bigger the hair, the better the swoop! Layers of this nature are fantastic for hair with a lot of volume and texture. Swoopy layers are dimensional yet smooth, so the hair looks sleek, yet full of movement.

#17: Layered and Flipped

Here’s an ideal style for medium length hair that looks heavy. It’s also perfect for women who have long hair and want to make it a little bit shorter. The first layers start somewhere in the middle of the length and descend towards the ends in stacked pieces. The result is a bouncy, adorable haircut with volume and movement to spare. Flip those ends using a curling iron, a straightener, or a blow dryer and a round brush.

Not every layered hairstyle has to go crazy. In fact, delicate layers work best for layered bobs and lobs if you’re not into over-the-top styling or have fine hair. Play to your strengths and use layers like you would, highlighting only where they add interest and dimension.
