If you ended up having a bad long layered haircut, don’t panic! We know you’re having a drama queen moment and all for the right reasons, but when your hair is long, you can still fix the mess by visiting a hair salon.
2. Awfully Layered

3. Bad Layered Hairstyle with Bangs
Instead of making the hair gain volume and texture, this long bad layered hair had only made it look thin and dull. If you ever experience something like this, get a medium hairstyle or a modern long bob that will look so much better than this.
4. Messy Layers

5. Women Over 50 With A Poorly Done Layered Cut
When you are a woman over 50, your hair starts losing its pigment and falling off. This is why you would need a hairstyle that works to your advantage, not a bad short layered haircut like the one above. Go for a pixie cut or a blunt hairdo.
6. Hair Highlights + Bad Layers
These bad chunky layered hair looks awful, mainly because those strands of hair are not beautifully blended. High definition is definitely not the goal here!
7. Short Messy Hair With Bad Layers

8. Poorly Styled Layered Purple Hair
