FAQ: How To Layer Your Own Hair?

What angle should I cut my hair for layers?

Angle layers are added so that your hair can hold the shape and style of the hairstyle better. Long layers can be cut at 90 degrees. However, most of the time, stylists like to cut the angles between 135-180 degrees depending on the shape of your head and the length of the hair.

Which is better layer cut or step cut?

Step cut is best suited for people with wavy or thick hair type whereas layer cut is best suited for people with straight or thin hair type. Step cut Has a lot of spacing or gaps, as a result steps are easily seen. Layer cut on the hand Has no spacing or gaps. As a result, Layers blend and it cannot be seen clearly.

What is the difference between feathering and layering hair?

Feathering is a technique used to give texture to your hair, shaping the end of your locks. Meanwhile, a layer cut involves cutting different lengths throughout your hair. This style results in more volume, lighter tresses, and shorter dry time.

Should I get face framing layers?

Face-framing, longer layers will keep the attention centered on your beautiful face, as opposed to the no-layer look that will lengthen it. Try a long hairstyle with layers starting just under the chin to show off that face shape and give it a more chiseled look.
