When you’re ready to get a new haircut, you may find yourself spending hours scrolling through social media platforms and flipping through magazines to get inspiration for your next look. Well, it’s time to stop all the unnecessary hassle and instead opt for a haircut that suits just about everybody. We’re talking about layers! It’s pretty obvious why layered haircuts are a great and timeless option for most people: They can amp up volume, they look super-chic, and they work on all hair types and lengths. It doesn’t matter if you have short hair that's straight, medium-length hair with a wave, long hair that's naturally curly, or any other combination of texture and length, you can find a layered hairstyle that works for you. Not sure where to start? Here are 40 gorgeous layered haircut ideas.
While the layered bob works best for those who have fine hair, it can work well for all types of hair, so don’t be afraid to give it a try! Multiple layers can give your hair some much-needed texture, shape, and movement. This haircut is usually shorter in the back, but you can ask your stylist to play around with the length depending on what you think suits your face shape best.
This fresh-looking cut is shortest at the nape of your neck, then graduates to longer strands that frame your face.
There are few haircuts more adorable and low-maintenance than the shaggy bob.
Show off your gorgeous complexion with a layered bob cut that frames your face. Pro tip: Face-framing layers of any length always pair well with an on-trend makeup look!
This bob cut is layered with more of a rounded finish so that when all of your hair is behind your shoulders, the ends form a U-shape.
This cut, which is sported by many models, will form a V-shape near the nape of your neck.
A tousled, textured bob is easy to style and always easy on the eyes. Just use a bit of mousse, like the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse, to scrunch damp strands, then let your hair dry naturally for a gorgeous, relaxed hairstyle.
This dramatic take on the classic bob looks super sleek on straight strands.
Wispy side bangs can bring a softer touch to a layered bob haircut.
Feeling dramatic? We say, go for it! Uneven layers are unpredictable and fabulous.
Chop to it—angled, choppy layers add volume and texture to a basic bob.
Good news! Similar to the layered bob, the layered lob is another hairstyle that can suit just about everyone. In fact, the lob haircut has been making waves the past couple of years, with multiple A-listers rocking this versatile style. What’s great about the layered bob is that you don’t have to sacrifice much length to give this modern haircut a try. Styling tip: When your hair is wet, spritz on the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Put your hair into a braid, then undo the braid once your hair has dried for pretty, loose waves.
Wispy feather-like layers can add instant volume to the lob haircut, especially for those with fine or thin hair.
This universally flattering cut looks amazing on colored strands, especially if you have ombré or balayage highlights.
Spice things up by adding uneven layers to your lob haircut.
Whatever your hair length, face-framing layers are always gorgeous, and the lob is no exception.
Straight strands are a gorgeous way to rock the rounded lob haircut, but before you reach for your flat iron, don’t forget to use a heat protectant, like the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray.
Instead of layers all over, this cut focuses on creating ends that are two-tiered for a dimensional look.
A touch rock ‘n’ roll and a touch disco, it’s safe to say the messy shag won’t be out of favor anytime soon. This ‘70s-inspired haircut is another style that allows you to keep your length but still get a fresh, cool new look.
This classy, classic haircut will never go out of style.
A favorite look of many celebrities, we love wavy waterfall layers—especially when they’re styled with a curling iron. To keep everything in place, post-styling, don’t forget a few spritzes of a hairspray that won’t let you down, like the L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold Volume.
Layers that have a U-shape can add instant dimension to longer hair.
The same can be said for V-shape layers, except they have a more angular finish than U-shaped layers.
This natural-looking cut is particularly gorgeous when styled with a large-barrel curling iron.
If your long locks are also naturally curly and voluminous (lucky you!), a two-tiered cut is a great way to add dimension without creating a poufy final look.
This romantic cut has stood the test of time for a reason—it's stunning!
Think you can’t jump on the layered haircut bandwagon if you have curly or wavy hair? Think again! You may not have realized it but flattering layers can look amazing on naturally curly hair since they can give your locks more shape. To style your curly layers, use the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse. Apply an egg-sized amount of the hair mousse to wet strands, flip your hair over and scrunch it, then let your hair air dry.
Remove the bulk and add perfectly placed volume with long, tapered layers.
We love wispy feathered layers, especially on longer locks. If you’ve got naturally wavy or curly strands, forgo your hot tools and let your strands air dry for a laidback look.
When it comes to edgy haircuts, long, layered bangs definitely deliver. If you’ve always wanted to add some fringe to your look but have been too scared to take the plunge, this haircut could be for you. Long, layered bangs are a nice way to try bangs without having to take a huge risk, since they will grow out quicker than super-short bangs. Just ask your hairstylist for long, layered bangs that frame your face.
Super on-trend at the moment, blunt bangs are a favorite of many popular actresses.
Add some dramatic flair to your long hair with side-swept bangs.
This cut pairs especially well with a bold eye makeup look!
You don’t want them too long, obviously, but layered eye-skimming bangs are a chic look.
This angular take on the pixie cut is shortest at the nape of your neck and graduates to longer strands at your widow’s peak.
Upgrade your classic pixie cut with choppy layers for an edgy look that we love. Pro tip: Keep all your choppy layers in place with a bit of hair cream.
A modern take on the traditional pixie cut, adding angled layers into the mix creates instant volume.
This is perhaps the edgiest of all the layered looks. The layered, under-shaved pixie isn’t for the faint of heart, but for those who can rock it, it's an amazing look!
A more romantic twist on the pixie cut, wispy, feathered layers add softness to this style.
This modern hairstyle requires little to no maintenance at all—you can basically just wake up and go. Plus, it can also add definition to your hair. To give yourself the perfect bedhead look, try the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel. Warm a small amount of the product in your hands and start working it through the tops and sides of your hair. Muss it around using your fingers to twist individual sections of your hair and shape them as you please.
