35 Wonderful Layered Haircuts for 2022

Layered haircuts are a go-to option for women these days, especially women who have thick hair. Layering the hair simply means hair is cut at different lengths. It cuts down on bulky hair and also creates swoon-worthy movement you’ll fall in love with. Plus, layers work with all hair types! So what are you waiting for?


Lovely Layered Haircuts

This list of 35 layered haircuts will leave you with plenty of options for updating your current hairstyle.

1. Long Layered Hair

Sure you could wear your long hair all at one length, but a better way to style it is by adding layers. These are long layers so the first level of layering doesn’t start until the shoulders.


2. Short Layered Hair

Do you have a short haircut you want to liven up? Short layers start closer to the scalp so not only do they create shape, they add texture up top you can easily manipulate with fingers.


3. Layered Medium Haircut

These blonde layers begin at chin level and really pop when hair is straightened and draped over shoulders. When you have layers, you need only add a center part to finish off your look.


4. Layered Curly Hair

Curly hair tends to get thick and bulky, sometimes even messy if it’s not tamed the right way. Whether you have natural curls or use a curling wand, adding layers is the best way to whip them into shape.


5. Layered Hair with Bangs

A half updo with straight bangs looks even better with layers. On brown hair with caramel layers and waves, layers add a slight feathering to help hair stand out hanging over shoulders.


6. Layered Straight Hair
