Layers look great on medium hair. They provide volume, shape, and frame the face at all the right angles. However, sometimes layers can be a pain to style. The next time you’re in a style rut, try these hairstyles for medium hair with layers.
Start by investing in a round brush. Try to find a ceramic one that will minimize hair damage from heat. Use a shine serum or leave-in conditioner on wet hair, concentrating on the ends. Blow dry the hair with the hair brush rolling in constant, upward motion to give your hair lift at the roots.
After your hair is dry (and voluminious!), you have a number of options. You can leave it as is, or heat up your curling iron for some relaxed waves. For a beachy look, curl away from your face and tousle your hair.
For a throwback to ’20s glam, curl your hair inward. Pin the curls to your head to set, then release and run a paddle brush through them for a wave effect.
Styling layers doesn’t have to be limiting. Just remember to use products and styling tools that minimize heat damage. The best hairstyles for medium hair with layers start with healthy, undamaged hair.
