Long Layers Haircut

Long Layers


Long and straight hair doesn’t have to be stick-straight and boring. The long layers of this cut take away weight and bulk, and give the hair the illusion of being all one length until it moves—then you see the lightweight texture throughout—and you’ll see a shape that adds visual interest and looks natural.

A feather razor is used to break up the weight of long hair, but still maintains its length. By razoring the last 3-5 inches of the outline, the layers maintain the overall shape of the style.

This long layers hairstyle works best with hair textures that are straight to wavy, and with medium to coarse density.

All face shapes can wear this style, but check with your stylist to see if any stlye modifications, like face-framing layers, will help accentuate your best features.


On damp hair, apply designline Enchanted Midnight Weightless Oil. Blow dry with a paddle brush. Mist Redken Pillow Proof Primer Spray on small sections and flat iron smooth.

For a second look, tie your hair into a high ponytail, gather the length and twist around until you create a bun. Slip a lightweight fabric elastic over the top of the bun and pull pieces loose for a lived-in top knot.
