Layered haircuts with bangs are a great way to get a fresh new look. Fortunately, layers work with any hair length. From a short pixie to a medium-length shag, to a long bob, you can get that layered look. If you want to really show off your new layered hairstyle, consider adding highlights. They’ll create more dimension and make your layers pop!
If you have short and thin hair, layering with bangs can give the appearance of more volume. If you have medium-length hair, layering it gives the illusion that it’s longer. For women with thick hair, a layered cut can remove the extra weight, which can often make your hair easier to work with. If you love your long length but want a fresh cut, go for some layers. It’s a great cut to get without a huge commitment.
When it comes to layered hair with bangs, you’re definitely making a bigger commitment. You have so many options for bangs, but it all depends upon your hair density as well as your face shape. Below, I’ve put together an amazing collection of photos that show off some gorgeous layered haircuts of all types. From blunt bangs to a wispy fringe, you’ll find a look that has the perfect combination of length, layering, and bangs.

Wavy Hair with Long Layers and Thick Bangs
This is a natural, air-dried long layers with bangs. The greatest thing about it is that the styling is low maintenance because it’s all her real hair texture, no irons. I cut the length, put in shape, and took off the weight for this client using a dry haircutting technique.
Embrace the hair texture nature has given you and approach your hair care and styling rituals that enhance your natural beauty. For something like this, I would use alcohol-free/sulfate-free products. Specifically, I used Deva Curl No Poo, One Condition, and the Light Defining Gel. Deva Curl has a range of products for all hair types (like coarse or fine hair).
I would find a stylist who has experience cutting and styling with natural texture so they can help guide you on how to use the product line (or any other curly product line for that matter). Natural wavy/curly hair is not a one size fits all and you need a stylist who gets it!
Medium Layered Bob With Bangs
This is a hipster-chic medium layered bob with bangs.
Someone considering this look, first and foremost, needs to consider their own texture. If your hair is pin-straight but you want this sort of tousled style, it’s going to require time dedicated to curling in order to achieve it.
If your hair is super curly, you need to consider that either you’re going to have to embrace curly bangs – which I love, but I know isn’t to everyone’s taste – or you’re going to have to take the time to smooth them out all the time. Whether you want to spend that time comes down to your own lifestyle to determine. Only you know whether those things are too much of a commitment or not.
Regardless of your texture, in order to have a layered cut with this much definition, you need to be willing to use a product, so always consider whether that’s something you’re open to doing.

Medium Layered Haircut with Side Swept Bangs
For this look, we were both feeling like we wanted a boho vibe. My favorite way to create lived-in layers is focusing more so on the interior of the haircut using a “back cutting” technique creating movement and shape without the boxy square shape that can leave you with harsh lines and a less desirable grow out.
Her fringe was pulled from where her natural part lies creating fluidity and symmetry. I always follow the centerline of the iris to create a perfect balance with the face.
With her balayage placement, I focused on what the sun would do to her hair. Adding thicker pieces of balayage throughout her fringe, I start with a very thin backcombed piece that went into a wider section also allowing for a more smooth grow out.
