If you’re ready for a style refresh but not quite as prepared for a drastic change, layered hair is the way to go. Layers can be easily incorporated into most hairstyles, adds movement, volume and texture, as well as frame any face shape. Plus, it can be applied to short or long hair! You can keep your current hair length and just ask your stylist to add them in. Here are some celebrities with layered hairstyles for inspiration.

Eiza Gonzalez, a Mexican actress and singer known for her glamorous long hair, got a bit of a style update for a role. Her natural waves are complemented by a soft, brow-grazing fringe that frames her face. Because she has a diamond-shaped face, the fringe and layers soften her sharp features. These tousled, bedhead locks are the perfect, carefree look for the summer. 

To add a beachy vibe, use Sunsilk Naturals Coconut Hydration Shampoo to soften your waves without weighing them down. 

From Sweet to Sultry: Add Versatility to Long Hair with Long Bangs

American singer and actress Sabrina Carpenter likes to part her long grown-out bangs in the middle and create face-framing layers. This “curtain fringe” makes her layered long hair less weighed down and frames her heart-shaped face. 

To help boost your hair volume, use Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Shampoo, which has lavender oil and rosemary extract that boosts body, for fuller-looking hair.

You can’t go wrong with medium length hair with added texture. American model Hailey Bieber styles her no-frills haircut with long layers that add movement and shape. It’s also a good way to volumize fine hair, as well as soften strong facial features, such as a pronounced, square jaw-line like Hailey’s. 

To boost dry, flat hair, use Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Conditioner, which adds up to 95% more volume while nourishing and detangling.

American actress Kate Mara gives her classic style a head-turning update by chopping it all off and getting a ‘90s-inspired super short, shagged bob. The bangs may look one-length, but choppy layers create the illusion of more volume. The shorter cut balances her smaller, heart-shaped face, with edgy angles. 

For some light conditioning, use Dove Weightless Repair 1 Minute Foam Conditioner. It smoothens and detangles hair without weighing it down — perfect for short styles that need lots of movement.

If adding some neon hues to your roots is too much change for you, just add a few face-framing front layers to your straight medium-length bob, like Billie Eilish’s signature hairstyle. It’s a great way to add movement if you’re blessed with soft, super straight hair. The style is also flattering for most face shapes. 

To maintain this fuss-free look, use Sunsilk Expert-Perfect Straight Shampoo, which helps keep hair straight even without blow-drying.

From Shy to Rock ‘N’ Roll: Add Versatility While Growing Your Hair with Choppy Layers 

Can you pull off a micro fringe and a shaggy cut like Úrsula Corberó?

Úrsula Corberó grows out her pixie but with the ease of a rock ‘n’ roll star thanks to shaggy transition styles — from a curly, overgrown pixie to a medium-length shag cut. Full of character, this look comes with a trendy micro fringe, and longer, textured layers in the back. This hairstyle suits the oval face shape, which is the most versatile, like Ursula’s. 

To keep the wispy layers from getting too frizzy, use Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo, which makes hair five times smoother.
