Long layers for straight hair offer a sleek style with a soft and subtle movement for more intricacy. Now, having a stick-straight mane is no longer an excuse to live with a flat, lifeless hairstyle! Stylist Celeste Docherty from Manahawkin, NJ shares a few perks of getting a layered cut. “One, it takes some weight off very thick hair. Two, it provides a playful canvas for more styling possibilities,” she notes. These long layers on a straight haircut have to be cut in certain ways, depending on how you like to wear them. This is to prevent unwanted choppiness. Docherty assures that “bounce, volume, and fullness are what you can achieve with the right layering.” Hair density and texture are other factors to take into account. This haircut may create thinner ends if you have fine hair. Instead, get a face frame or curtain bangs to alter your style without getting rid of density. Show your stylist a picture of your favorite hairstyle and ask whether you can replicate it at home. Docherty suggests questions like, “Will it fit well with your daily routine? Do your hair type pair well with this look?” Get a whole new hairstyle without taking away so much length. These images will show you how to wear these trendy long layers for straight hair!
