22 Swoon-Worthy Long Layered Hairstyles & Haircuts You Have To Try

Looking for new long layered hairstyles or an updated hairstyle for long hair? Check out these gorgeous hair styling techniques for long hair. Long layers have been the most requested cuts in the past few years.

Layers remove just the right amount of weight to give the hair movement, without making the ends look over-layered and straggly. Layered hairstyles typically look great on all face shapes and, depending on how they are styled, they could flatter some face shapes more than others. Layered hair is also a great styling technique for making thin hair look much fuller.

Loose Curls

Q&A with Style Creator Deborah Smith
Hairstylist @ Mic Mac Head Shoppe in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look can be worn either for the weekend or for a dressed up occasion. The hair is positioned so if the curl loosens it will fall into a beautiful wave.

What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

All styling products used were by Redken and Moroccan Oil. The hair was washed with Redken Color Magnetics shampoo and conditioner. Redken Stay High mousse gel was then used to provide body and lift. The Moroccan Oil heat styling product was used to protect hair from the curling iron, and Redken #18 hairspray was used to finish the look. I used a 1-inch curling iron to create these bouncy curls.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is for the woman who wants a little more styled look to cross over from day to night wear. It can be paired with jeans and heels or a cocktail dress and heels. It is a very versatile hairstyle.

Galactic Layers

Q&A with style creator, Brooke Sutaris
Hairstylist and Make-up Artist @ Maggie The Salon in Pembroke Pines, FL


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

To me, this look is a galaxy. Using different placement and tones of color, I wanted it to look different whatever way she moves her hair. I wanted to create something you can look at and wonder, just like a galaxy. Blending and melting colors into each other gives it different effects and depth.

I love enhancing fashion colors with soft and subtle layering and texture to really make the color pop when it’s curled, but when it’s straight the layers blend. I really enjoy how the color seems mysterious in a sense.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I tend to always tell my fashion color clients to pick up Color Conserve shampoo and conditioner by Aveda and use it once weekly. If they have a concern with oil, I will tell them to use the Aveda Be Curly co-wash if they need to wash their hair more then once a week. The co-wash will gently break down the oil, but keep the color locked in for longer. Dry shampoo is a must when you have fashion colors. My go to is Gold Lust dry shampoo by Oribe. It doesn’t have that feeling of buildup if you apply it to your roots daily.

For her color, I used Pulpriot. I love it because it’s moisturizing and smells amazing. When it fades out, it doesn’t look odd or splotchy. The color lasts one to four months depending on porosity of the hair and at home care.

When it comes to styling, I always grab Illuminate Shine by Eufora. It’s a lightweight, non-greasy shine spray with pharmaceutical grade aloe vera. It helps lock in color and gives the hair moisture and manageability. I spray it on damp hair, blow the hair dry, and spray it again before I curl the hair. I always finish with some Dry Texturizing spray by Oribe to separate the curls.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this type of cut for someone who has a square face because the long layers balance the face shape by creating soft volume. In this photo, my client previously had a heavy blunt fringe. I wanted to soften the fringe since she is growing them out so we can work on having some soft face framing layers.

This color has to be for a person with good fashion sense. Normally, I would recommend this color if they wanted something fun and different. It all depends on the type of job they have and what they are willing to do to maintain such a look. Fashion colors are for people who want to be noticed. These colors also tend to be more expensive. Also note you have to be dedicated to spending two to five hours in the salon once a month.

When it comes to hair type, this can work with most hair types, but it does involve bleaching hair and could possibly take one to three sessions of lightening the hair to the desired level. My number one goal is to keep the integrity of the hair. I always reach for Olaplex and no higher than a 20 volume developer. Slow wins the race when it comes to hair!

Voluminous Layers

Q&A with style creator, Jessica Caprotti
Hairstylist / Balayage Specialist @ LeShag in Kingston, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This client of mine happens to be a close friend who was looking for a more modern and sophisticated style. My favorite thing about this look is she still has a lot of length, but I incorporated some layers to give her more volume and movement. We also added short face framing pieces to give her a more romantic look when she puts her hair up.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

For this style, I recommend using any type of smoothing cream to blow out the hair. I chose the Warren Tricomi smoothing gel. Once the hair was dry, I went in with a large curling iron to give her some glam waves, then finished it off with some Label M Rejuvenating Radiance Oil to give her more shine.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend his look for anyone looking to add more volume and movement to their hair. This look is great because it looks amazing polished and fresh, as well as the next day tousled and messy. This look is perfect for the modern woman on the go.

Layered Sombre

Q&A with style creator, Bianca
Junior Stylist @ Alchemy Salon in Silver Spring, MD


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as the perfect blend from going natural to blonde. My client asked me what can I do to grow out my natural into the blonde I already have, and that’s my favorite thing about this look. The mix between babylights and balayage make it look so seamless . I love that she will be able to wear this look for the next several months and it will still look like she got it done because of the rooted sombre.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Products for stylists to try and recreate this look would be Wella Blondor Powder and Redken 9v and 9gi.

To maintain this look, I would definitely consider a color-safe shampoo like Oribe Beautiful Color shampoo and conditioner, and/or Phytocitrus shampoo and conditioner. I also recommend Subtil Platine blue shampoo to maintain ideal ashiness.

To style, I recommend starting off with a heat protectant on damp hair. I like using Subtil 10 because it has ten benefits to using it! Follow with a straightening balm like the oOribe Balm d’Or to smooth the ends with a medium round brush. Finish off with Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray to keep the frizz away.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this hairstyle for anyone with coarse to fine hair. It’s just a versatile look for those who want their natural hair color to be a part of their balayage. The brightness and face framing layers will open up any part of the face that you feel is too closed off. The long layers also help enhance the color creating movement.

I always love creating these looks on people that want to have that updated look or transition to balayage instead of highlights, but don’t always have the time to come in every six weeks for a highlight touchup. It’s so easy to have this grow out and still look like a beautiful, natural sombre.

Dimensional V-Cut

Q&A with style creator, Shannon
Hairstylist @ Old Station No. 4 Salon & Barber in High Point, NC


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

It’s one of my favorites to do! This cut gives GREAT dimension, especially for long hair. This particular cut has long, face framing layers with a defined point in the back, which creates the V-cut.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

It really is about the cut with this one, so I recommend regular haircuts to maintain shape. However, I created this look by using a bit of Style Link Turbo Dry blow dry spray by Matrix before blow drying with a round brush for volume. Finish the look with a drop of Total Results Mega Sleek Mega Varnish (also from Matrix) for a silky smooth finish to tame the frizz. So simple!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look is you have long hair and don’t like to spend a lot of time on it. This cut creates dimension and movement without a lot of everyday maintenance! It’s very versatile and really can work on anyone, but those with extremely thick hair may find getting the exact shape difficult and may want to try layering into the V-shape.

Sexy Beach Waves

Q&A with style creator, Rosie Pieternelle
Hairstylist @ Mark Garrison Salon in New York, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

These are effortless and yet sexy beach waves. My favorite thing about this is that it’s a beautiful look that can go with any outfit at any time of the day.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

The products that I recommend are Phytokerarine Extreme for heat protection, Phytovolume Actif Intense Volume Spray, and Phytolaque Soie for a soft hold.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this hairstyle to any client regardless of the face shape or hair thickness, but it would look best if the hair is below the shoulders.

Dimensional Blonde Layers

Dimensional Blonde Layers hairstyleInstagram @payton_at_thehairartiststudio_

Q&A with style creator, Payton Baxley
Colorist @ The Hair Artist’s Studio in Lake Norman, NC


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this as dimensional blonde. My favorite aspect of this hair is the blend! It’s a mixture of her natural color, a lowlight around her face (where most women show grey first), and a beautiful golden blonde highlight to set the contrast and match her skin tone.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

The product I would recommend is an intense daily conditioner. Saints & Sinners has a great one. My motto is “longer hair is older hair” because it’s been around the block a few times and it needs more than a basic conditioner to look healthy. If your hair is fine make a ponytail and put it on the end of the ponytail, do not touch your scalp area. Without a good conditioner long hair will break.

Another great product I used on her is a heat protectant and a dry oil to fight frizz. Kuene has a great heat protectant called Prep and a great dry oil called Defrizz Sachet. I like it because it’s not greasy and adds shine. Using a wand to make those loose beach curls allows me to have more control over the curl.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I would recommend this look for a client that wants to blend their grey and has a warm or olive skin tone. The long layers pair well with an oblong, round, square or heart shaped face.

Balayaged Beach Waves

Q&A with style creator, Heather Schmick
Hairstylist @ Heather Schmick Hair and Bridal Stylist in Spokane, WA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is all about balayage and beach waves when styling. I hand painted her hair using a ‘chip brush’ painter’s brush. Hand painted balayage makes for a lived-in look with minimal upkeep. Once the balayage was finished processing, we rinsed and glazed with a rose gold semi permanent color.

Glazing with a semi permanent color is great because it lasts for a couple months then rinses out. I love rose gold because is a fun yet subtle way to change your hair if you’re looking to spice up your everyday look!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I would definitely use a color-safe shampoo and color-safe conditioner to maintain the longevity of the rose gold. When styling, I use Davines products. I love their heat protectant and volumizing mouse when blow drying. I then curl the hair in a loose wave and finish the look off with a small amount of Davines Shine Wax on the roots/mids. Depending on the look I’m going for, I might run through the curls with Davines Oil Non Oil for a more polished beach wave. It I am going for something more messy, I’ll spray Davines’s Texturizing Spray thoughout the mids and ends, giving the curls a more beach textured look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is great for balayage clients looking for a fun change. Glazing with a rose gold is always a safe bet if you’re not ready for a vibrant color glaze!

Blown Out Layers

Blown Out Layers hairstyleInstagram @redkittenm

Q&A with style creator, Michelle Reece
Hairstylist @ Style Station Hair Salon in Frederick, MD


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is a long layer cut with a round brush blowout. My favorite thing about it is that the blowout brings out all the layers.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I used a soft mousse for the volume and touchable feel of the hair. Since she had natural wave of her own, I used a light smoothing serum on the ends (applied while wet) to  smooth any frizziness that can happen with this type of hair. I try to keep it simple for clients to be able to recreate their looks at home.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This blowout works better on thick hair with a bit of natural body. It is harder for a client to recreate with hair that is fine, thin and straight. I understand that it is harder for clients to spend the time at home to do this to themselves. Many consider it a treat and I offer them to come in on special occasions for me to do the blowout for them!

Sultry Layers

Q&A with style creator, Bianca Hendee
Cosmetologist / Colorist @ Bianca Hendee Hair in Tempe, AZ


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as classic and flirty. Even though it’s long layered, the shorter face framing layers add a sultry look to it. The color is my favorite. We highlight and lowlight her, and the combination really enhances her natural hair color.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I always recommend a color-safe shampoo. My favorite is Paul Mitchell. For styling, I recommend Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum and Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This hairstyle is best for medium to coarse hair types, as well as for people that are willing to style their hair to really make the layers stand out and frame the face the way they’re meant to. Longer layers with face framing starting at the lips looks great with most face shapes!

Smoky Brown Layers

Smoky Brown Layers hairstyleInstagram @jinniejinniedc

Q&A with style creator, Jinnie
Hairstylist @ Plane Jane Salon in Bethesda, MD


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

There are tousled layers with smoky brown balayage. My favorite part is the subtle transition from babylights to more dimensional highlights on the bottom. It really compliments the whole shape of the layers. This style will last very long without looking heavy.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

The haircut doesn’t require too much product. I used Milbon Volume Mist for volume at the roots and Milbon Restorative Blowout Primer to to even out porosity. These two products are also heat protectants, so you don’t need separate product for that.

Rough dry everything (sometimes a good, skilled rough dry does 70% of the job!), then tousle some curls with a curling iron. To maintain the color, using a sulfate-free shampoo is a must. Since the cool tones are applied on bleached hair, it can’t avoid the fade out process, therefore re-toning in 8-12 weeks is recommended.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is ideal for clients who have thick and coarse hair that still want to maintain volume. The layers remove a lot of weight, but at the same time lift to give more volume. The shortest layers start below the chin, so it is suitable for clients who have concerns for their round face.

Layered and Textured Cut

Layered and Textured Cut hairstyleInstagram @missyhixhair

Q&A with style creator, Melissa Hicks
Hairstylist @ Image Artistic Salon in Fleming Island, FL


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a long layered and textured haircut. We used V-shaping in the back then added in her layers. We did an elevated face frame technique and shattered her ends for a more piecey look.

My favorite thing about this haircut is the way it tapers down. It’s not straight across and I believe this adds more character to the style!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I always recommend a heat protectant first and foremost. Use a root pump mousse on the roots before blow drying, and a texture spray and hairspray for the ends.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for anyone looking for something a little different than your traditional long layered haircut. It’s fun and uplifting! It could work for someone with thick to medium hair. I would texturize ends more on the thicker hair. I wouldn’t recommend this cut for fine/thin hair because of the intensity of the layers. It would remove too much weight.

Caramel-Toned Layers

Q&A with style creator, Caleigh Giarra
Hairstylist/Balayage Specialist @ Haven Hair Co. in Nashville, TN


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as natural and subtle. The color gives just enough pop and dimension. My favorite thing about this look is the warmth of the balayage. I think warm caramel tones enhance brunettes perfectly.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To help create these loose waves, the products I recommend are a blowout balm like IGK’s Car Service, or a moisturizing hair lotion such as IGK’s Mistress. You need just a little something to keep the hair hydrated and protected from heat styling.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is great for anyone that desires something low maintenance and natural. This color only needs to be touched up a couple times a year and is perfect for a brunette that just wants to enhance her natural color. It’s a great look for all types and textures of hair.

Lastly, this length and style is what I would recommend for anyone that is always on the go, in the gym daily, or enjoys braids and topknots!

Bohemian Edge

Q&A with style creator, Kristina Pettit
Hairstylist @ A Secret Place Salon and Day Spa in Ventura, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as effortless, lived-in, and bohemian with an edge. My favorite thing about it is the carefree vibe and the unique texture and shape the cut takes on each day!

You can flip flop the part line in the front of the hair to give yourself new volume throughout the day. The haircut is point cut at the ends and the layers are deconstructed and slither cut for maximum texture.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I used Featherbalm Weightless Styler by Oribe and rough dried the hair without a round brush, focusing on over-directing the roots. I then finished the look with Dry Texture Spray by Oribe from root to ends. It gives just the right amount of grit to the hair so that the hair is able to support itself. It can be used again to refresh the style the next day between washes.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this style for someone who loves an unstructured look and doesn’t want to spend a lot of time over styling. Quick, small investments like rough drying your roots and a couple of quality styling products can really amplify the look very easily!

Long Hair With Short Layers

Long Hair With Short Layers hairstyleInstagram @ramseytobey

Q&A with style creator, Ramsey Tobey
Hairstylist @ Beauty Bar Boutique in Wilmington, NC


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as long hair with short layers, as opposed to calling it a “long layered cut.” My favorite part about this haircut is all the movement and body it has while still keeping the length. I used my razor to do a lot of the interior layering, then cleaned up the perimeter with my shears.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

For this style, I would use a flexible gel to give it hold while keeping it soft. My favorite gel to use for a blowout is Oribe’s Gel Serum. Use it with a round brush and your blowout will last for days!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style can really work for anyone with medium density and medium textured hair. This shape is really good for ladies with round shaped faces because of the length. It elongates the face. It’s also a good haircut if you like to play with your style. It’s great for long updos and would look beautiful curled with a wand.

Flowy Long Layers

Q&A with style creator, Taylor Nicole Walker
Hair Artist @ Inner Beauty Salon & Spa in Poughkeepsie, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as a flowy long layered haircut! My favorite part about it is how much bounce and body it adds to boring hair. I also love how it compliments the balayage and gives some dimension to the hair.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To maintain and recreate this look, I would suggest keeping up with trimming the layers every six to eight weeks. I used all Eufora International products to get the end result.

When the hair is damp, spray some of the Eufora Smooth’n Thermal Protective throughout to help with any damage from the heat of the blow dryer. It also keeps the hair looking smooth and shiny! Blow dry with a medium-sized round brush and give a bend to the ends away from the face to create the flowy look of the layers.

To finish it off I use a little bit of Eufora’s Tame spray which is a frizz control spray that helps any flyaways lay flat without making the hair hard or sticky like a hairspray. I also finished a light mist of their shine spray to keep it shiny and healthy looking!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this style to anyone with thick hair that is looking for a new and simple style! It’s pretty low maintenance and easy to achieve once you get the hang of how you like it blow dried The layers are long enough that you can still braid or wear your hair up without pieces sticking out.

Glamorous Blowout

Glamorous Blowout hairstyleInstagram @arconewyork

Q&A with style creator, Emilio Borrego
CEO @ ARCO Salon in Brooklyn, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This guest came to us in search of a new salon. She wanted to keep her length and wanted a cut that would allow her to look as if she spent hours styling her hair without actually spending hours.

She also mentioned that she had really dry hair, especially on the ends. We examined her hair with an in-depth micro-analysis and discovered she had an extremely dry scalp as well as dry split ends. We performed a holistic rebalancing scalp treatment before putting her under a steam dryer with a deep moisture mask to penetrate her thirsty dry hair.

We then trimmed her split ends and gave her beautiful long layers, adding depth and texture and allowing her to have that effortless glamorous hairstyle. We love everything about this look. Not only is her hair gorgeous, but the integrity and health of her hair and scalp is restored!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

We are an eco-luxury salon and use only holistic 100% vegan hair products, including color. For this look, we used Oway’s Bio-Rich water to set the foundation of the cut to add vitamins and protein to the cuticle. We also used Oway’s Silk-n-Glow serum and the Glamshine spray to add shine and silkiness.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is for anyone that’s wanting that effortless glamorous blowout look. It’s perfect for someone that likes to wake up and go in the mornings for work and goes out after with the girls for happy hour.

Point Cut Layers

Point Cut Layers hairstyleInstagram @tasarislesalon

Q&A with style creator, Stacy Schutte
Owner / Stylist / Educator @ Tasaris Le Salon in Vacaville, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a long cut that is even from front to back and has long layers that were created using point cutting. My favorite thing is that it blends well with my client’s overall look and the layers allow her to not look like a triangle as her length grows because her hair is thick. She is a college student that sometimes has to go awhile in between haircuts.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I love using Aquage products! On this client specifically, I used Smoothing Shampoo and Equalizing Detangler at the shampoo bowl. While I was cutting this style, I used Moisture Mist by Biomega to keep the hair evenly damp.

For styling I applied Silkening Oil Treatment to protect the hair from the heat of the blow dryer and add shine to the hair. I did some point cutting after the hair was dry, then I used Aquage Finishing Spray to hold each curl.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

Thick hair that is wavy or straight works well for this look. It is a good option for all face shapes since the length is long and the layers can be adjusted to accentuate the face shape. The lifestyle is best for someone that wants to be able to pull their hair up into a ponytail.

Modern Brigitte Bardot

Modern Brigitte Bardot hairstyleInstagram @missjassem

Q&A with style creator, Heather Jassem
Hairstylist/Color & Balayage Specialist @ Alchemy Studio in Oakland, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I love this haircut! My client was growing out her fringe and it just recently hit that sweet spot. We are now working with a modern day Brigitte Bardot look in that her grown-out fringe is now meeting the layers of her modern shag.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I love airy texture for this look. I used R+Co High Dive moisture and shine cream and Dallas thickening spray on wet hair. I finished with Outer Space Flexible Spray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I truly believe this look can work for many different textures. It’s all about what kind of time your client wants to put in as well as how we educate our clients about home care.

The great thing about this haircut is that all face shapes can work with it because you can change the fringe or length to flatter their shape. This is an airy, modern, long haircut that most everyone can love!

Shattered Layers

Shattered Layers hairstyleInstagram @ericaj_hair

Q&A with style creator, Erica Johnson
Hair Stylist/Colorist and Education Director @ Laura D’s Hair and Day Spa in Mechanicsville, VA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

My favorite thing about this look is her natural, God-given hair color, as well as the shattered layers that make it easy and light for styling.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend Redken’s One United for extra moisture, heat protection and detangling, as well as Redken’s Blow Dry Cream for a quicker blow dry time with extra heat protection. Lastly, I love Redken’s Align #12 for smoothing and frizz protection.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for medium to thick hair types and with natural wave. The layers and texture create softness and movement to the hair, so it’s great for wearing it straight or curly.

Natural and Effortless Layers

Natural and Effortless Layers hairstyleInstagram @hairbymillersca

Q&A with style creator, Milla Kvick
Hairstylist @ Salon Noomi in Sweden


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I always tell my clients that the name of this look is jokingly, “this is how I wake up”. It is because it is meant to look as natural and effortless as possible. You need to have some layers in your hair since long one-length hair doesnt look the same way curled, and colorwise I always love to mix different tones together. My favorite thing about this look is natural feeling of it.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To create long lasting, effortless looking waves, it is important to prep the hair properly. In this look, I first used Schwarzkopf Osis+ Flatliner as a prepping product. It makes the hair anti-static so waves come out more balanced and pretty. I always tip my clients to hold the flat iron horizontally and to take wide, horizontal sections while curling the hair. This way you will get more wavy look instead of the classic, tight curl.

I always use Osis+ Sparkler Spray for the ends to give the glamorous shine and to finish the look with Evo Working Hairspray. It is an elastic hairspray that holds the look but at the same time allows the hair to move naturally.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I would recommend this look for anyone with medium to long hair and who has a bit of time to fix their hair.

Soft Textured Layers

Soft Textured Layers hairstyleInstagram @kit_mcelroy

Q&A with style creator, Katy McElroy
Stylist @ Raven Row Salon in Austin, TX


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This color is a very natural, sunkissed balayage. I love this look because it’s super low maintenance and looks like she spent the summer at the beach. For the cut, I gave her soft textured layers. She loves wearing her hair curled, so the layers give her lots of movement.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To achieve the textured wavy look, I recommend using a workable hairspray to prep the hair. Choose a product that isn’t too sticky so you can still run your fingers through the hair. My favorite is Oribe Freestyler Working Hairspray.

After curling, I always finish with a texturing spray and rake my fingers through the curls to break them up a bit and give it that effortless look. My favorite texture spray is Oribe Dry Texturing Spray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this style for ladies with medium to thick hair that are willing to put a few minutes into styling. This cut and color will also look great on ladies with naturally curly or wavy texture that prefer to let their hair air dry.
