Dark Brown Long Layered Haircut with Balayage
This long layered haircut with balayage was created by stylist Gina Rizzo of Ridgewood, NJ. “The sides are layered and the back of the hair was cut in vertical sections,” she explains. “Doing so elevated the hair to a 45-degree angle. Then, using the shortest layer as a guide, the top was cut at a 90-degree angle. The square layers on top give the hair beautiful movement.”
This cut on long and straight hair is versatile and low maintenance. It looks beautiful straight, blown out with body, or curled. This cut is great for women with long hair of any texture. It’s low maintenance, yet gives the hair a great style.
When it comes to styling, Rizzo says, “blow dry hair in sections with a large round brush using a smoothing blow dry cream or volumizing mousse. Exact product use will vary depending on the hair type and desired outcome.”
Sleek Face Framing Long Layers with Dark Brunette Roots Style
“The goal of this cut was round layers,” explains cosmetologist Will Burkowske of Los Alamitos, CA. “This long haircut is fun because there are several round shapes coming together to create the overall style.”
Will goes on to explain, “place a rounded perimeter to begin the cut. Then add the round layers. Finally, the face-framing layers were added and styled round, giving the overall cut another stylish element. This cut works best on women with straight, medium texture hair.”
This haircut, in particular, is a great cut for long, straight tresses. The rounded elements accentuate the hair type. If you have an oval face shape, it compliments the cut.
This is a great cut for a woman who doesn’t mind a little styling by creating some bend on the ends and some swooping movement back for the face framing. High Dive by R+Co is a great moisture and shine cream that gives styles like this a sleek finish.
