34 Cutest Long Layered Haircuts Trending Right Now

Long layered haircuts

If you’re looking for the most popular long layered haircuts, then you’ve come to the right place! Below, we’ve put together the pictures of long layered hair ideas that are trending this year. Layering removes just the right amount of weight to give the hair movement, without making the ends look over-layered and straggly. Long 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. Layering long hair is also a great styling technique for making thin hair look fuller.

Light Brown with Lengthy Locks

Q&A with style creator, Simone Ulatowski
Stylist @ The Bernards Salon in Bernardsville, NJ

How would you describe this look?

This look is razored long layers. The advantage of a razor cut for this look is that you don’t have to sacrifice length for movement.

The wispy layers are kept lengthy so that the bottom line is not too skinny, giving the appearance of stringy hair. But cutting with a razor allows the ends to have plenty of free-flowing movement if the hair is blown-out smooth or curled.

This long hair was blown dry with a Mason Pearson flat brush, yet it still has a lot of movement – that is my favorite thing about it.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The maintenance of this cut is minimal, and the shape can work for any face shape. The length of the layers just needs to be adjusted according to the density of the hair and preference of the client.

One thing to consider is whether a client would want their hair cut with a razor or not. Some people have an aversion to a razor cut because they may have had a bad experience with it.

Because of the movement of this haircut, it really works well for someone who blows their hair out every day or for the client who wants to encourage their natural wave or texture and lets it air dry.

Dramatically lengthy tresses with a face-framing center part make this a perfect long layered cut for women with thick hair. The swoopy layers are so soft and feminine.

How would you describe this look?

This is a sun-kissed look with lots of movement that allows for versatile styling. No matter which way you part the hair or style the long hair, layers will always lay beautifully.

Any advice for someone considering it?

For long layered hairstyles like this, it’s important to use a good conditioner to keep your hair healthy, shiny, and strong.

Senior Hairstylist @ Luce Hair Studio in Kingston, ON


How would you describe this look?

This is a long layered haircut with some faded foiling. What I love about this look is that the haircut showcases the perfect balance of dimension and brightness of the foil work. With a layered cut like this, you get fabulous movement without removing too much weight from the hair.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is perfect if you want to wear your hair straight, wavy or with curls. It’s also very flattering for all face shapes. It can easily be customized for the client’s face using face-framing layers as well.

I love using a little KMS Moist Repair Leave-in Conditioner to keep moisture in the hair and GOLDWELL Just Smooth Smooth Control for when I’m giving a blowout. I follow it up with a little KMS Anti-humidity Seal to finish it off.

While this hairstyle requires a little time in the morning, you can get an amazing look by just passing your flat iron through it or popping in a little wave.

Q&A with style creator, Dani Maloney
Stylist @ R Salon PHX in Phoenix, AZ


How would you describe this look?

I’m so inspired by bohemian, natural, beachy long layers. When I look at Sierra’s hair, that’s exactly what I see. Long layered hairstyles just seem to provide that perfect beach-ready style.

I see a wash n go style that’s still modern and up to date. I love that women who have a low maintenance style can still have a modern look that works for their everyday life.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If a customer came in and asked for a natural look but also some texture, I would recommend something like this cut, with barely-there layers.

Sierra has a natural wave so we worked with it to create something she can manage with little fuss. I love IGK Rich Kid for an air dry or diffused beach texture. I would then use a 1/12 inch iron and create soft waves. I would finish with a texture spray (Beach Club Texture Spray by IGK), as I finger through the waves to create a natural look.

This style would take very little time in the morning but such a fresh look. Personally, I love this style as second-day hair with a touch of texture spray to freshen up.

Layered Long Shag

Q&A with style creator, Jackie Smithwick
Hairstylist @ Style Divita in Kill Devil Hills, NC


How would you describe this look?

This is a long layered shag that gives you a little more edge than the traditional ones. Joan Jett and Farrah Fawcett were 70’s icons that rocked this style with full swag!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Considering this shag with layers, long hair can be fine or thick hair, and practically for any face shape. It adds extra volume and texture and gives you a modern look.

You can style a shag many different ways. For a sleek look, try an oil or serum when almost dry.

For a more tousled, worn look, use a textured mouse when wet, hit it with a little dry shampoo when dry and let those windows down!

Whether your client is someone who likes to roll out in the morning with a little Powder Play or someone who takes the extra time on their look for the day, this cut is great and can be styled differently for everyone.

For the curly hair shag, get some major curling mouse. My go-to product is TIGI Queen for a Day thickening spray as it gives texture. As you’re drying, you can place pieces of hair where wanted, so when completely dry you have movement and volume. I always hit a shag with TIGI Oh Bee Hive dry shampoo once dry to give that tousled modern chic look.

Chunky Long Layered Hair

Q&A with style creator, Becky Smith
Senior Designer / Salon Educator @ Chemel Salon in Tacoma, WA


How would you describe this look?

This is effortless and classic. Long hairstyles with layers are one of my favorite looks because it’s so versatile. It can be worn in many ways: straight, curly, up or down.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Know that the square perimeter allows the ability to maintain length in the back as well as the front. Minimal long layers and heavy texturing complete this look by removing bulk to be worn without weight lines. Have fun with it!

Q&A with style creator, Maren Mahlman
Hairstylist @ BBMA The Salon in Woodland Hills, CA


How would you describe this look?

The combination of babylights and balayage make this color look effortless and classy. The best thing about this is a once every three-month service! It’s a very low maintenance color and layered hairstyle for long hair.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This style is great for most clients, especially for fine hair. 1 1/4 inch curling iron is best for a loose wave. My favorite finishing product is Badlands from R & Co for a little root boost and texture.

Straight, Layered Dark Red Hair

Q&A with style creator, Lindsay Gore
Owner @ Strandz Hair Studio in Littleton, CO


How would you describe this look?

This long hair with long layers is colored a warm auburn with chocolate and caramel accents. I love this look because it fits most face shapes and looks cute both straight or curled.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Long straight hair is fairly low maintenance but will require blow drying (with or without a round brush), and with a volumizer (my favorite is IGK Trust Fund) to showcase the layers.

It best suits round, square, or oval-shaped faces. If you have a heart shape, I’d recommend a cut with fewer layers.

This color is great for enhancing green, brown, or Hazel eyes and neutral to warm skin tones.

Texturized Choppy Layers

Q&A with style creator, Yuki
Dry Cut Specialist & Educator / Owner @ Gavert Atelier in Beverly Hills, CA


How would you describe this look?

This look can be described as undone, texturized, beachy tresses. I use the dry cut technique in order to see how hair reacts.

What I love about these choppy layers is that it’s really one of the more natural and effortless hair trends right now.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is great on any face shape. She has fine hair and the beachy waves add a lot of body.

To style, I used a 1 1/4-inch curling iron and curled random section to create the undone waves. After curling, I used Milbon Texturizing Spray to add body and softness.

Q&A with style creator, Carlie Soule
Future Professional @ Paul Mitchell the School Great Lakes in Port Huron, MI


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

This look features loose waves for growing out medium length hair. My favorite thing about it is the natural looking texture that the layers and waves give to her fine hair.

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

I recommend Paul Mitchell’s Root Booster, Sculpting Foam and Extra Body Finishing Spray to recreate this look at home.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is perfect for clients with a longer hair length and has thin or fine hair who are looking to get movement and texture in a style that’s great for everyday wear!

These dashing caramel colors and loose twists are the perfect combinations for layered haircuts for long hair.

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.

Long Layered Sombre

Q&A with style creator, Bianca Herrera
Hairdresser @ Bescene Studios in Silver Spring, MD


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

I would describe this look like the perfect blend from going natural to blonde. My client asked me what can I do to grow out my natural into the ash blonde I already have, and that’s my favorite thing about this look. The mix between babylights and balayage blonde highlights 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 Oribe 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 will open up any part of the face that you feel is too closed off. The cut 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 a blonde balayage instead of highlights or lowlights but don’t always have the time to come in every six weeks for a highlight touch up. It’s so easy to have this grow out and still look like a beautiful, natural sombre. Ombre hair coloring just provides great detail to layered hairstyles for long hair.

If you’re going to a formal event and want to flaunt your gorgeous, flowing locks, then this hairstyle will certainly do the job. It’s also a youthful and head-turning look for women over 40.

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.

Golden Blonde Layered Hair

This curled golden blonde long layered hair cut and color would work beautifully for a prom or wedding look.

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 a 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 the 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 color 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.

Textured Layers

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 the rose gold hair color 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 Feathered Layers

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 layered hairstyle with a round brush blowout. My favorite thing about it is that the blowout brings out all the feathered 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?

Layered haircuts for long hair are better on thick hair with a bit of natural body. It is harder for a client to recreate with strands that are fine, thin and straight. I understand that it is harder for clients to spend their 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 Long Layered Hairstyle

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?

This is your classic long tresses and light layers. Even though it has long layers, the shorter face framing sections add a sultry look to it. The color is my favorite. We highlight and lowlight, 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 sections 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!

Flirty Ash Brown Tousled Hair

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 long layers. This layered and long hair will last for a while 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 even out porosity. These two products are also heat protectants, so you don’t need a 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 sections start below the chin, so it is suitable for clients who have concerns for their round face.

Layered and Textured Cut

Instagram @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 haircut is long and layered hair with texture. We used V-shaping in the back then added in her flipped out feathery 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 layered haircuts for long hair. 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 Subtle Layers

The dark contrasting with the ashy long hair with layers give this a very casual, yet super-stylish look.

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

Long Layered Hair with Side Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Sandra
Senior Stylist @ The Local Salon in North Hollywood, CA


How would you describe this look?

One of my faves for long locks is face-framing layers that taper into long layers towards the back. Creating an invisible shag around the top crown can be worn in its natural state or styled with extra “Bardot” retro volume.

Her hair is naturally dark, and we gave it two different shades of ash babylights. Really fine highlights give a natural sunkissed look. The placement of these highlights adds fullness and low maintenance upkeep.

Any advice for someone considering it?

My favorite thing about layers on long hair is the versatility! It’s easy to style or not style. It can be thrown up in a top knot or low bun with flirty pieces that fall out around the face creating side-swept bangs. It’s perfect for wavy hair, hair that’s naturally air dried, or hair that likes to be blown out with lots of body and volume. The color adds lots of depth. Whatever you do, your style will look great no matter what!

When blowdry styling, I like Davines’ moisture mousse for light hold, hydration, and body. For a lived-in look, a dry texturizing spray is awesome. Always use a heat protectant when using hot tools like a curling wand, iron, or blow dryer especially with extra long hair.

Hydrate your ends. Do conditioning or Olaplex treatment at least once a month. It’s great for your hair and self-care!

Long Hair With Feathered Layers

Short layers for long hair give you a feathering look that’s effortlessly stylish.

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 razor cut for 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.

Whether you’re attending a party or going out for a romantic evening, these flowing dark chocolate colors will surely impress.

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

Point Cut for Thick Hair

Instagram @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 hairstyle with layers that is even from front to back and layering that were created using point cutting. My favorite thing is that it blends well with my client’s overall look and the long layers allow her to not look like a triangle as her length grows because of her thick, straight hair. 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?

Long, thick hair that is wavy or straight works well for long and layered hair like this. 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.

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 just paste the shoulder-length haircut! My client was growing out her long hair and bangs 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 haircut that most everyone can love!

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 layering in your hair since longer one-length hair doesn’t look the same way curled, and colorwise I always love to mix different tones together. My favorite thing about this look is the natural feeling of it.

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

To create a lasting, effortless long layered wavy hair like this, 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 a more wavy hair 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.

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 waist-length 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 long layers give her lots of movement so feel free to infuse those long layered hairstyles with plenty of curls.

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 layered hairstyle for longer hair for ladies with medium to thick hair that are willing to put a few minutes into styling. This layered hairstyle for long hair and color will also look great on ladies with a naturally curly or wavy texture that prefers to let their hair air dry.
