Do you get frustrated feeling like you can’t keep your hair from being so flat all the time? We’ve all been there, that’s for sure. Sometimes, not matter how much product or hair styling you do your hair just continues to lay flat without any movement. If you’ve experienced that, or may be experiencing it now, it may actually be because of your haircut. Our haircut can play a major role in how our hair lays and is able to be styled. While there’s a lot of benefits to having all hair one length, you may want to try a cut with layers for hair that’s less flat.
Often times when we have our haircut all one length, our hair tends to be flat because there’s not any natural movement to the hair with the way it’s cut. Adding layers in hair is a great way to add dimension, definition and volume. In addition, adding layers is a great way to remove a lot of extra weight that’s in the hair that could also be contributing the hair to laying flat. See, when our hair is one length it tends to have a lot of weight at the ends of the hair – causing the hair to struggle to have a lot of volume to it. Layers being added to the hair help to eliminate some of that weight, allowing you to have more volume in the hair much more easily.
The great thing about trying a cut with layers is that there are a ton of different ways to get the benefits from layers in your hair, in a way that best suits your face shape and hair type. Anytime we’re talking about haircuts and layers, it’s essential that you focus on adding them in a way that’s going to work with your hair type. Just like when using different hair care products, taking all the different steps isn’t going to give you the results you’re interested in achieving if it’s not done so in a way that works WITH your hair type. Layers are no different in this factor.
If you’ve been feeling like your hair has been really flat lately, and notice that your hair is all one length you may want to talk to your hair stylist about adding some layers to your haircut. Since they are the expert, open up a line of communication and ask what they would suggest. While we tend to have an idea of what layers will look like in our heads – there are so many different ways for hair stylists to add layers to our hair, ask them what would be the best way to get the benefits of layers in a way that works for your face shape and hair type in the best way possible. When you are talking to your hair stylist about adding layers, be sure to mention that you’re interested in achieving hair that’s not as flat to get the best results.
