What types of layers are their? How do I know what kind to get that will look good on me? – Bianca
That’s actually a pretty complicated question! Many people think that there are set kinds of layers. I’ve had several clients ask for “two” or “three layers”. That would look like two or three Cleopatra wigs of different lengths stacked one on top of another.
Layers actually exist in more of a flowing range. Layers should always be sculpted to suit your scull shape, hair length, hair type, and beauty routine. In general, layers can be longer, shorter, choppy, smooth, volume building, or volume reducing.
When you see your hairstylist, tell them exactly what you would like to achieve with your hair. They should sculpt the layers accordingly.
I want to try layers for this upcoming school year but I also play soccer so I need all my hair to be in a ponytail. Is it still possible for layers, if so what kind? – Gabby
It’s wonderful to see young women adapting their hair to their favourite sports, instead of the other way around! I’ve known some women who avoid exercising, if it means wrecking their blow out.
As long as your shortest layers reach your chin or longer, you’ll be fine. Also, remember a high pony can scoop up shorter layers than a low pony can; and hairspray is your friend. Good luck on the field!
