Readers ask: How To Layer 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.

Should you cut your own hair wet or dry?

For most textures, Tripodi actually recommends trimming hair while it’s slightly damp. “If it’s towel-dried and a lot of moisture is taken out of the hair, but you can still see its natural texture, that’s a generally good time to cut it,” she explains.

What is the difference between step cut and layer cut?

While a step haircut adds bounce to your hair, a layered haircut adds volume and gives the illusion of thicker hair strands. This is also easier to maintain because even when the hair grows out it doesn’t look too uneven. Because of this people with thin hair or long hair prefer layers to add volume to the crown.
