The A-List: Long Layers
When thinking about what makes a perfect long-layered style, a few things come to mind: movement, fullness and how the hair frames the face. Gisele Bundchen has rocked her signature mane for the majority of her career, and for good reason -- her strands check all of the boxes. We may not be as genetically blessed as Mrs. Brady, but we can at least take a cue from her stylist and master the long-layered cut for ourselves!
Works Best On: Any hair type. Long layers add body to fine hair, texture and structure to thick hair and can help keep curls in shape.
What to Avoid: Too many layers in the back; this could give you a mullet effect.
Rules of Thumb:
- Ask your stylist to start your shortest layer just below the chin, or if your face is on the rounder side, between the chin and shoulder.
- Long layers require regular upkeep to stay looking healthy. Schedule a trim and shape-up every 6-8 weeks to keep your layers from going haywire.
