If you’re obsessed with your long locks but desperately want a makeover, don’t worry, you don’t actually need to get a drastic snip! Though most people would advise to chop off your hair into a short ‘do, we’d believe that you can transform your look with the right layered haircut.
Layered haircuts can range from something as subtle as textured ends to unique and shaggy mullets. But whether or not you want something totally different, there’s definitely a layered hairstyle that would liven up your lengthy tresses. If you want something more obvious, you can even get bangs!
The combo of a chic layered ‘do and bangs is probably the best way update your look without sacrificing your hair length. If you’ve been growing out your tresses for a while now, why cut it right? Besides long hair is so versatile to style. Want to don a half-pony? Check! An intricate fishtail braid? Check! An Ariana Grande-esque high ponytail? Check! You can’t tie your hair if you’ve got a chin-length bob after all. Trust us, that can be pretty frustrating when it’s hot and humid.
Convinced? ‘Cause we’ve rounded up a slew of styles you’ll definitely want to show your stylist during your next salon visit. P.S. There’s nothing shorter than a lob on this list, too!
10 Stylish Layered Haircuts with Bangs For Long Hair
1. Shaggy Lob with Curtain Bangs
We’ve talked about curtain bangs before and how insanely flattering this style can be on any face shape! The beauty of this cut is that it helps frame your face if you’re not happy with the natural silhouette of your cheeks and jaw. The layers also help add volume if you’ve got limp or thin hair—so that’s definitely a win, too!
2. Subtle Layered Lob with Wispy Curtain Bangs
Wispy bangs are a popular style among K-drama actresses for a reason. This dainty fringe is an all-arounder: easy to set, easy to show off, and equally easy to hide or tuck aside if you’re not feeling it! Paired with soft layers, this is the perfect hairstyle if you want a more feminine look.
3. Hime Cut with Full Bangs
The trendy hime cut or princess cut is a blunt layered hairstyle that features a sleek block layer of hair cut along your cheek or chin (depending what works better for your face shape!) This is a clever haircut that works for anyone with prominent cheekbones or round cheeks since it really tapers them down to your chin.
4. Soft Layers and Curtain Bangs
ICYDK, this cut is famous amongst a lot of celebrities—Nadine Lustre and Kathryn Bernardo have been spotted in this style at some point in their career! The beauty of this look is that the layers in it make the style easy to transform whether your hair is styled into a textured bun or bombshell curls.
5. Subtle Layers and Face-Framing Full Bangs
This ‘70s inspired cut is a must try for anyone who’s willing to make a statement. If you’ve got a prominent forehead, we suggest you try this cut to frame that feature and have your face appear more angular. No need to go for a bold hair color if you think the cut is intimidating enough!
6. Subtle Layered Lob and Long Curtain Bangs
Not a fan of short bangs that tend to poke your eyes? Try long curtain bangs that fall by your cheek instead! This is great if you’d like to flaunt your brows and forehead but still want a face-framing cut.
7. Shaggy Layers with Baby Bangs
Whether or not you opt to get this haircut with a perm, you should definitely try this volumizing hairstyle. The layers help create the illusion of luscious and thick hair while the baby bangs complement the cut and give it unique and off-beat vibe!
8. Soft Layers with Full Curtain Bangs
This cut looks undeniably youthful, chic, and is flattering even on virgin black hair! The bangs help sculpt those with a round or square face shapes, too!
9. Soft Layers with Wispy Curtain Bangs
This haircut looks particularly flattering when paired with a light-colored balayage since it adds a bit more texture to the subtle layers in this style. But it’s the bangs that really livens up this look. Again, when you’re hesitant to commit to a full fringe, don’t hesitate to try barely-there tendrils that fall beautifully on the sides of your face!
10. Lob with Textured Ends and Wispy Face-Framing Curtain bangs
A layered cut doesn’t need to look so obviously shaggy. Take this style for instance that features very delicate layers around the face (and not the whole head!), making it a purposeful ‘do that’s meant to sculpt one’s face shape.
