Angled bobs, graduated bobs, lobs and blunt bobs are everywhere these days. But cutting your locks can be intimidating. Don’t be nervous to try this trend and you can use layers to really fall in love with a shorter cut. Layered hair frames your face, emphasizing the features that flatter your face shape.
When you go in for your layered chop, make sure that you discuss all of your options, fears and desires with your stylist. Take in a few pictures of styles that you like. Your layers will depend on your face shape, hair texture and type of maintenance that you want. Check out our favorite mid-length layered haircuts.
Long Shag Layers with Bangs
If you’re looking for a mid-length cut that has style then try this look. The full bangs frame your face and bring attention to your eyes. The very subtle angled cut gives your mid-length hairstyle a feathered finish and the long shag layers create texture and body.
Long Side-Swept Bang Layers
When you have a medium length cut with layers, side-swept bangs happen rather naturally. If you like to part your hair to the side, then opt for a long thick layer around the front of your face to create a long side-swept bang that flows into the other choppy layers of your mid-length cut.
Wavy Lob with Hidden Layers
Layers should be a tool to enhance your hairs natural style and texture. If you have fine hair but want to rock that wavy lob, the hidden layers are your answer. A slightly graduated bob that uses layers to blend the uneven length from the back to the front will create natural texture to enhance your styled lob.
The ombre look is best with texture. Create natural texture by adding choppy, shag-style layers into your mid-length cut. Start the layers where the ombre begins for a coherent and dynamic hairstyle.
Long Angled Cut with Short Layers
If you want your layers to really show then you will want to get shorter and longer layers added to your mid-length hair. This can work well for thick or fine hair but it’s preferable if you have straighter hair (or like to straighten it). If you angle the cut, you can keep your longer hair in the front but then get the mid-length look in the back. It’s a simple way to get a unique, edgy hairstyle that is still perfect for the office.
